MP3 player similar to ipod or Creative Zen players.
Microsoft's entry into MP3 Player market. Cost: similar to High end Ipod and Zen players.
Has unlimited music subscription available (Not Ipod), Individual tracks can be bought for a little less than Itunes. Subscription does not require credit card, and parental controls/limits are well thought out. Other Subscription services do not have this feature which is a plus for parents.

Controls: Look similar to Ipod, but what looks like a scroll wheel is really more of a directional pad. It's a matter of preference, but I found the controls to be logical and very intuitive. Slightly easier to use than Ipod, Much easier to use than creative Zen vision.

Video: Large screen, Excellent quality, Very fast transfers.

My history: Ipod, didn't like how fragile it was, gave it away. Creative zen, Screen small, scratches very easily (much like ipods), didn't like controls. Was happy with it (better than ipod) until I bought my son a Zune for Christmas. Gave my zen away, bought myself a Zune. No regrets.

Each device is a matter of personal preference, all are very similar in form and function.
IPOD owner: "I love my ipod, but it's out getting repaired for the 5th time due to another cracked and scratched screen."
Zen owner: "Look at that teeny video, isn't it crisp? Don't mind the scratches all over my screen."
Zune owner: "No problems with my player, can't wait until someone else buys one so I can use the wireless music share feature."
