I got a Zune over Christmas, and I've really enjoyed it. I bought it wanting a player that could hold my music, play radio, play podcasts, and show video with the additions of games and pictures. The Zune has come through on all counts. The player has plenty of space for my songs, since I only have around 500 or so. In addition, I have four podcasts that I keep updated, as well as pictures, and a television pilot, and I still have a lot of space. If you don't have a lot of music, it'll be fine. In addition, the podcast support is amazingly easy. You merely give the link to the podcast, or you pick it from the marketplace, and the next thing you do is pick how many episodes you want on the Zune. After that, it will download them automatically and keep them up to date, and even delete ones you have listened to (and keep track of how much you have listened to). Finally, there are lots of neat little touches. The navigation is extremely versatile. You can go up and down in menues, as well as horizontally. Need to find another album by the same artist? You don't have to go up to the artist level, but you can instead go left and right on the wheel to see other albums. Other nifty things include the way it automatically pauses when your earphones are unplugged. Things like this are nice touches, but make the Zune a great player.
