Anyone own a Zune? I'm thinking about buying one but I figured I'd get some opinions on it beforehand. Thanks.
I have one of the old brick ones. Even though the next generation and now the HD ones are out which are superior, I am satisfied with the product. The sound quality is better than an Ipod and it is definitely more durable. I read a review of the HD Zune on engadget and it sounded really good.
Probably depends on what you want to use it for. I heard Zune has terrible apps compared to the Touch. If you want to use it for just media playing it's probably great. I want something to use to play games and other useful apps get the Touch.

I'm a dedicated Zune guy. I have a Zune 80 that's something like a year and a half old. I like it so much more than the Ipod. It just isn't as up it's own ass as much as Apples gadget. Sound quality is beautiful, battery life is great, you can set your own background, displays album art well, ect, ect, ect. The only downside to it is that it doesn't have the social advantages that the Ipod has, such as being able to get it to work in your car/other peoples car and such.
If you're looking to buy one, go for the HD. Microsoft is doing away with the older ones(which probably means you'll be able to get one for real cheap if that matters to you). I'm really sad that they don't have a storage capacity above 32 GB's for it given my 65 GB music collection :(
I have a Zune and an iPod. Frankly I like my zune better based on one main point. My Zunes battery is much better then the ipod. If I leave them both untouched for a week the ipod will be dead and my zune will have full battery still. The Ipod touch does have great apps and such but as a straight up music/video player, I like my zune much better.
The Zune HD is coming out so you can either wait and snag one of those when it comes out or you can get an older one for cheap.

When do you guys think would be the right time to buy an older model for cheap? I have an ipod but i hate it and i want something else but I'm on bit a budget right now...I'd say my limit floats at bout 100 maybe 150

I just got the Zune HD and compared to the iPod touch its about the same without all the Apps the only thing the Zune HD has that the ipod touch doesn't have is a HD Radio and it has a much longer battery life. So in terms of music player the Zune HD is better but if you want a mp3 player with loads of apps and low battery life get the itouch
