"Overall, I really like it, but it has some rough edges that I hope we will get polished up. On the positive side, the player itself is pretty slick. The screen is large, bright, and quite frankly, gorgeous. UI is simple and easy to use, and the included FM tuner is a nice bonus. It feels a tich bigger than the same 30 GB iPod, but I like the feel a bit better - the case is made of that textured plastic you sometimes find on high-end home theater remote controls. Nice "grippability", to make up a term."
Ozymandias, otherwise known as Andre Vrignaud, purchased a Zune as a Christmas present, and weighs in with his thoughts and opinions. Andre is an employee of Microsoft, working with their gaming platforms. In a nutshell, Andre loves the hardware, and actually likes the software, although he had issues getting it working initially, plus the unpleasant experience of Zune initially attempting to sync his entire (and rather large) music library.
