I have the older 30GB version. It has always been a great mp3 player for me, and with the new software update the release in November, it has all the features of the new Zune's. It does a good job with your own MP3's, and a good job with podcasts. If you can find a 30GB version, it is the best deal going.

Also, one thing I can think of that I don't like, is the shuffle mode. It doesn't shuffle very well. I will get back to back to back of the same artist. I have over 5000 mp3's on my zune, but it seems to play the same artists over and over.

I also have the bulky 30gig, I have one and I bought my wife one. I have had no issues what so ever with them (i have only had them since Aug). Sounds great and easy to operate

These are the demands and sayings of Duncan.

If you have destroyed 4 ipods' I don't think a zune is going to be any better. Might try treating your stuff better.

I just got the 80gb Zune and I love it. I like that it has a larger screen than the 80gb ipod. It's a little thicker than the ipod but I am really happy with it.

Good luck. I just recently joined the Ipod nation. I have had several others over the years, the last one I bought was a Sony 20gb 2 years ago, worked great, still does was just ready for a new one, so I bought an Ipod. I like it so far, hopefully I get a few years out of it and I will happy.

extreme heat and cold is not exactly good for any electronics. I know I am guilty of it too, atleast with my old sony MP3 player. After spending $250 on a damn ipod I always take that thing out of the car.
