Microsoft Zune HD 32GB Portable Media Player Review

BigPictureBigSound
23 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The Zune interface both at the keys and on the go is kind of, y'know, pretty (there, I said it), so while I did have to really search (and wait) for what I wanted at times, the lively Zune experience might indeed have an edge over the plainer, more static iTunes in terms of sheer fun. And with HD Radio, OLED and 720p in my pocket, the Zune HD player definitely has an edge over every other portable in terms of its high-end feature set.
  • Pros: Cross-platform "ecosystem" combines 1080p at home and 720p-to-go, Built-in HD Radio/FM tuner, Wi-Fi, with downloading directly to the device, plus social connectivity
  • Cons: Does not support Windows Media Video Digital Copy, Zune software could be more intuitive, less sluggish

Microsoft Zune HD 16GB Review

Digitaltrends
15 September 2009
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for a personal media player that also morphs into a calendar, e-mail device, remote control, and all-around life machine, abandon hope now and buy an iPod Touch. Even if Microsoft opens the doors for developers to hop on the Zune HD in the future, it will take months and years before it grows the amazing variety of software that Apple’s App Store already has, making that device nearly bulletproof for 90 percent of its functionality.
  • Pros: Incredible 3.3-inch OLED display; small, lightweight; sensitive capacitive touch screen; high-def 720p video output; smooth Web navigation; refined FM and HD radio tuner
  • Cons: No open App Store; initial stuttering on video output; no tabbed browsing; weak Wi-fi reception

Microsoft Zune HD MP3 player review

Pocket Lint
16 October 2009
  • Excerpt: While the first Zune was just another MP3 player to many, the same can't be said about the Zune HD, the follow-up player from Microsoft. Could the Windows maker finally have a device that will give a new impetuous to the MP3 player market? We've been living with one for the last month to work it whether the hype is justified.
  • Pros: OLED screen, Zune Pass, interface, software, Tegra chip for graphics
  • Cons: App selection is week
