Summary: The HD Radio reception is very poor. The[$] Insignia portable HD radio is superior (Reception, Distance, Sound Quality) by far. The video has far too much red in it - It is crisp. The Browser is a waste for anything but the most basic functions. The Apps - lack of - is also just a bunch of thrown together afterthoughts.Just trying to put too many things and all of the just averagely.
Pros: Smooth touch screen, nearly unscratchable screen (I dropped mine alot and still not a scratch), Zune Pass is a great value, Browser is faster than iTouch (I tested it against my friends), vibrant screen, plays xvid movies, HD Radio, Smart DJ is nice.
Cons: Browser is not recognized by many websites, lack of apps (not even an email app for MS Live emails), lack of games, no bluetooth, lack of accessories, have to buy songs with MS Points (MS's way of stealing), Audiobooks from CD save in Music section.
Summary: No book included with product so I had to have my son help me and I have not learned to do everything on the player myself. I do like it to use with what I music I have on it right now but want to learn how to sync the music from a cd.
Summary: I got it a month ago but I return it due to some defect.I like because its cute and the sound quality is very good,I thought Zune HD had some application like YM,Skype and other but they don't have it in which i wanted to access while i was away with my computer.While i try to sync it to my computer it work but the problem is head set jack in not properly working.
