Microsoft Zune 8GB

PC Magazine
8 December 2007
  • Conclusion: The first flash-based Zune is a good-looking, easy-to-navigate device that can be synced with your PC wirelessly, but its small screen and jumpy interface are no match for Apple's superior iPod nano.
  • Pros: Works seamlessly with redesigned Zune Marketplace. Navigation pad works well. Excellent graphics. Bundled earbuds aren't bad. Customizable rear panel. Syncs to PCs wirelessly.
  • Cons: Screen is too small. Headphone jack poorly designed. Interface can freeze up. Player-to-player wireless can be fickle. Full wireless syncing capability will be added in a firmware update.

Microsoft Zune 16GB

PC Magazine
8 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Calling the Zune 16GB a new product is a bit of a stretch. With no real hardware changes, and the ability to load the new software onto any of the older models, we're basically looking at the same old player with a paint job, a capacity upgrade, and price change.
  • Pros: Touchpad is still excellent. Improved user interface is less jumpy. Wirelessly syncs to your PC. You can buy music wirelessly and purchase tunes you hear on the radio. Unlimited radio presets.
  • Cons: Requires the $14.99 monthly Zune Pass or pre-purchased MS Points to download music straight to the player over Wi-Fi. No change in design, display size, or screen resolution from older models.

Microsoft Zune Review

Digitaltrends
27 November 2006
  • Conclusion: The Microsoft Zune is one of those products that you will want to avoid at all costs; at least this first generation. In comparison to other media players on the market, the Zune offers no clear advantage. It has an audio and video library with less depth than iTunes while the player itself has fewer features than offerings from Apple , Samsung or Creative .
  • Pros: Large display; competitive price
  • Cons: Bland design; low quality ear buds; not compatible with PlaysForSure; poor media library

Microsoft Zune review

PC Advisor
28 November 2007
  • Summary: The timing of the Zune's appearance in the UK remains shrouded in mystery. Are European consumers missing out on a gadget that's, well, unmissable? Not exactly.

Microsoft Zune (8 Go, seconde génération)

CNET
11 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Premier modèle à mémoire Flash de la gamme Zune, ce baladeur minuscule reprend toutes les fonctions proposées par le modèle à disque dur. Autant de fonctions dans si peu d’espace, est-ce bien nécessaire ?
  • Pros: simplicité d’utilisation, tuner FM, échange de musique, qualité sonore.
  • Cons: écran trop petit pour supporter l'affichage de photos et de vidéos

Microsoft Zune 80 GB (seconde génération)

CNET
9 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Dans sa seconde version, ce juke-box vidéo reprend les fonctions de son aîné, arbore un nouvel écran, une nouvelle interface et un nouveau pavé tactile. Des arguments suffisants pour faire le poids face au nouvel iPod Touch ?
  • Pros: qualité sonore, autonomie, qualité et taille de l’écran, tuner FM, simple d’emploi, fonction Wi-Fi pour s’échanger de la musique et des photos.
  • Cons: écran non tactile, pas d’égaliseur, fourni sans chargeur secteur.
