Tom read about the Microsoft Zune when it first came out, but he held back and waited for Microsoft to fine tune it. He’s glad he did. The Zune HD Video MP3 Player is greatly improved over the earlier model in design, function, speed and overall video quality. This mp3 is very competitively priced. Since Tom doesn’t use every feature he just added the ones he wanted and he kept the price low.
The Microsoft Zune HD has a sharp, flashy look. It is very lightweight, just 2.6 ounces; 30% less then the iPod Touch. It has a large 3.3”, multi touch OLED screen and a small home button underneath. The mp3 player measures 4.0 by 2.0 by a scant 0.3 inches. It’s easy to carry and a pleasure to use.
The power button and the volume on/off switch are both set in the side, with the power on top and the volume control on the left. The volume can be adjusted from the screen. The Zune has a longer playing time then the iPod Touch. The manufacturer states that the Zune HD can play video for 8.5 hours and music for 33 hours on a full charge. The iPod Touch’s time is listed at 6 hours for video and 30 hours for music.
Microsoft added a HD radio receiver to the Zune HD’s hardware so it has a clearer sound then analog FM. You also will enjoy more channels which are only available on HD. You can tag the songs you hear and buy them from the Zune Marketplace. The HD radio feature is included in the basic package, but if you want the Zune HD’s high-def video on your HDTV, you will need to add the HDMI docking station for an additional fee.
