Default Sell Zune 80 or sell Cowon D2?

I know they are hardly comparable, but I'm in a dilemma.


I bought a Zune 80 on an impulse buy for a good deal. I don't know if I should keep it and sell my Cowon D2 or sell the Zune 80 and keep the Cowon.


I really like my Cowon's portability, expandability and long battery life.

The Zune appeals to me because its something new. I buy a new player every half year lol. I also like the fact that you can play games on it, its large screen and the 80 gigs.

What I hate is that you have to install the Zune Software. I like dragging and dropping or using MediaMonkey.



Any input would be appreciated.

This is funny because I'm going through the same delima. I have Zune 80 and just got a D2. I bought the D2 out of curiosity.

Both are great pmps for my needs. The D2 is amazing because of the customization and sound quality. While the Zune sounds just as good, and includes games, and a great FM tuner.
I think I'm going to keep the Zune because of the larger capacity, thats the most practical think I guess. Theres no point in haveing two pmps.

I've already placed my D2 up for grabs at iaudiophile

FWIW, sell the D2. It's a great player, but the Zune has that much more. And, for all who're offended, though noogies!!!!

The Zune has what exactly "more" (besides storage space)?

Haha, well heres why I'm keeping my Zune.

1. Yes it has more storage. making is better for lossless audio.
2. I love the huge screen, having the large album art just looks cool, and text is more readible.
3. I like the FM radio. It has RDS support which alows it to display information like radio station name/artist/song/genre
4. Sound quality, well technically the D2 wins, but the Zune sound is decent and apprently handles lower impendence earphones better than the D2.

Now I did'nt get into the video and picture playback because I don't use those features, but obviously because of the Zune's large screen things will look better, but then agian D2 has all the thrid party codec support.

I'd keep the D2, but then again, I think I'll have one of those things forever. Even if something better comes along and I get that too, I'll keep my D2 in my box of precious worldly things.
