Overall, I think Digital Trends gave a very fair review of the Zune 8. (Wow, last year when the first Zune came out I was frustrated every time I read a ‘review’. What difference a year makes in public perception.) One thing I found interesting was that they knocked the Marketplace as being difficult to sign in. I’m not sure why since they didn’t really go into detail about that and I know from my experience that it signs me in automatically.
I do notice that many reviewers aren’t sold still on the Marketplace and Digital Trends is no exception. I do give them props for giving the subscription model props, which was very refreshing to see. They still thought the software could use improvement though I wasn’t completely clear as to what other than to make it more like iTunes. I guess most people are used to iTunes so I can understand that a bit but I never could get into the program even long before my Zune days.
Overall though, Digital Trends liked the Zune and if you’re trying to decide still if you want the Zune 4/8 then this is a good read.
