why a new 80gb Zune is almost 400$ on amazon, but on the Zune website its 229.99$ ?

Who the fuck told me amazon had good prices?!

cause amazon takes a cut for selling it, therefor they must charge more.

its like going to a furniture place and paying 1,000 bucks for a couch when you could have gotten the same couch straight from the manufacturer for 700 bucks.

....I know how business works brother.

But its USUALLY more cheaper to buy from a store than the manufacturer, because they buy in bulk so its cheaper to provide...like that carnivorous beast we call Wal-Mart...

So Amazon is taking the whole fucking pie....

The rundown on the two "top" (in terms of general market popularity) players

iPod - a bit overpriced, very overhyped, not that great (you can do better)

Zune - overpriced, looked down upon because people kept breaking them for some reason, but they sound great and are very decent players



Less popular players

Sony Walkman (current models) - very good sound, overpriced when purchased in the US but cheap when bought from a UK site like Advanced MP3 Players, well built, great battery life, just a great all around player

Cowon - rolled off bass but very detailed sound, great battery life in most cases and good players, but Cowon customer support sucks

Sansa Fuze and Clip - best value out there if you don't care much about video, some of the best sounding players out right now (if your music is in a high bitrate and you upgrade those stock earbuds to something decent), very very good players











As you can see, if the Zune is too much for you, get something else. Win-win situation.
