So I'm thinking about getting a new mp3 player. I'm debating over the 80GB Zune or the 80GB iPod. Both pretty much the same price (Zune is about $20 cheaper) but I've never used one before. Everyone and their mom have used an iPod before. Wondering if anyone on here as used them both and have any recommendations?

I've never heard of a Zune before to be honest with you. My wife and I both have 30 Gb Video Ipods, they've been great.

The best thing about popular hardware is that it's easy to find modifications for it, software and accessories.

i said zune because you keep telling me about how you will never own an apple product, excluding maybe apple juice and/or apple sauce. or apples.

Haha, it would definitely be the first Apple product for me but I am willing to own an iPod.

I don't know why, I just never have been a big Apple fan. I do use a Mac at work, but only for testing purposes. The iPod touch is nice, kind of fun, but it only holds 16GB's and that's not going to cut it. Plus, it's so ridiculously expensive.

if they are the same price get the ipod. waaaayyyyy easier to but accessories for it. the only thing the zune has over the ipod is the wireless song transfer which you can only transfer a sample i think anyways. and i can get you a discount on either if you buy it at sears.

Hmmm, good point about the accessories. The wireless sharing is kind of cool but nothing too crazy, you can listen to that song for 3 days or something like that. There is a built in FM radio in the Zune though, kind of neat but probably would never use it. But the discount gives the iPod a pretty good advantage. I was leaning slightly towards the Zune but now it's probably neck and neck. I'd have to see how much of a discount it is.

I think I'm getting the Zune. It pretty much all the things the iPod does plus a few other nice features like, built in radio and wi-fi (except no games argggh). I tried out their software and it looks beautiful (I was scared to try it but glad I did). The UI is nice looking too. I've never bought any songs off iTunes so I wouldn't have to worry there.

I forgot about this thread, so I decided on the Zune. Thus far I'm really happy with it.
