    I drove to the US to get my zune 30gb the day it came out about 4 years ago....and i still have it today, original headphones, slipcase and everything.

    when they came out with the 4,8,32,80GB or whatever, i thought w/e its the same as my zune but gayer looking, with a stupid slidey touch control.

    but, Im definitly replacing my zune with the zune HD!...it looks exactly like something I would have. I'll be picking up a black one as soon as it comes out.

    Does anyone know about the storage capabilities? I've heard 16,32gb, and rumurs of a 62gb...I would need 62gb, since I already have like 40 gb of music.

    Here it is:

    the zune hd looks cosmetically so much better than the ipod touch. And not to mention that the ipod was hacked like the day it came out and had a shit load of problems with it, meanwhile i've had my zune for 4 years and its only had a problem once and it was because microsoft forgot to put in the last day of the year in a leap year (it was fixed in one day)

    I still have my Zune 30GB, and it's truckin' along just fine. It's still in minty condition, because it has spent its entire life in an acrylic case.

    Not sure about how much room I'd need but I'll still be getting the 120GB at some point.

    The real reason to get a Zune at this point would be to experience the Zune pass. For 15 bucks a month you basically get access to an absolutely ginormous library of music that has just about everything, including obscure musicians and albums that come out the same day. It's perfectly legal, and now instead of looking for stuff to dl on emule, I can get ALL the music I want legitimately from a catalog with a great interface online, and instantly sync it to my Zune.

    Oh yeah and I also have the 120gb because I'm greedy.

    Probably because they know it would be a massive financial failure.

    its in canada, but its got basically no following.

    microsoft really f-d up on the hds storage, like they knew apple would upgrade the ipods this quarter, and storage has always been the focus so it was obvious the ipod touch would go up in storage...so y would microsoft make it 32gb? so instead of getting the hd im getting the new 64gb ipod touch, but im guessing the ipods better because its setup and all its apps...hopefully i dont turn into an app fag though, i want to keep it for strictly music & music related stuff.

    I really would like one as well. The only thing I see that im not too stoked about is no flash support in the web browser but im sure later on they will update that. I also still have my zune 30 and it works flawlessly and is built like a tank. It only makes sense for me to stick with zune since I went through 3 ipods in the same length of time ive had my zune 30.

    I'm pretty sure every zune 30 on the planet fucked up that day unless they'd previously opened the case and pulled out/put in the battery again (resetting the clock).


    Mine did. :lol:
