Help Would you choose a Zune MP3 player over a Creative Zen?

i have a creative zen mp3 player right now - vplus, 2gb. i was looking for an upgrade (anything but an ipod of course haha) and was wondering if zune was a good alternative. what are its advantages/disadvantages in contrast to the creative zen? and which model would you recommend? =) i'm looking for something that stores 4gb songs or more. thanks.

The 80GB Zune is some of the best value on the market right now.

As someone who has owned several Zens and used a Zune for an extended period of time, I can tell you that the Zune is much, much better.

I concur... if you can still find a Zune 30 for $100 or less, THAT is the best value on the market. You have a choice of old and new firmware and software. Rock solid player. No fingerprints, scratches or smudges. Although it has less features than my Creative Zen Vision:M, using my Zune has been far more enjoyable that I gave the ZVM to my daughter and bought a 2nd Zune on Black Friday just so that I'd have the choice of using both versions of the firmware.

I had a 30gb Zune and had some issues with it - more with the software than hardware. The only thing I didn't like about the hardware was the size of the player. Of course, when the HD crashed, I spent considerable time on the phone with Microsoft trying to get approval to send it in for repair. I decided against getting it "refurbished" and returned it to Best Buy for a full refund, since I got the 2 year product replacement plan when I bought it. Anyway, I ended up buying a 32Gb Zen instead and in all honesty, I am much happier with it than I was with the Zune. To each his own though. What works for one, doesn't necessarily work for all. I highly recommend finding friends with one and checking theirs out before you decide. That's how I ended up with the Zen. Someone at work had one, I tried it out, played with it for about an hour and decided that it was better for me. I know this post is kind of old and don't know what you ended up doing, but good luck with your decision.

I love to give homemade gifts...which one of the children would you like?
