*EDIT* SO MY CAMERA DECIDED TO DIE TODAY. GUESS I KNOW WHAT I’M BUYING WITH CHRISTMAS MONEY. PICS/FULL REVIEW OF THE ZUNE 8 ORIGINALS EDITION UP WHEN I GET BACK. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!
First of all Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates that today. And if you head over to our new forum (click the image above) and go to the wallpaper section you’ll find a nice little gift from me. just redid the flow images from the wallpapers on Zune.net to give people a bit more choice.
And also i’ve had a few days with my Zune 8 and here is my short take on the player. (pics of Zune Originals coming tomorrow)
-ZunePad is probably the best control scheme on a DAP i’ve used.
-spot to put in a wrist strap.
-Zune originals engraving is amazing.
-Menus could load a bit faster sometimes
-wishing the screen filled up the whole top instead of having that black boarder around it
-Randomly restarts for some reason.
-FM Tuner dosn’t seem to be as good as in the Zune 30
-no BLUE color. (^_^)
So far though i give it 4/5 and highly recommend it.
I’ll probably have a few updates after i come back from boston where it’s going to get a lot of use. but for now go check out your christmas gift over in the forum!!!
So it came in a few days ago and i’ve been spending a lot of time testing out the 8 and seeing it’s pros and cons. My internet has been down for the last week but i will have a review up here and photos on the forum come the 26th at the latest. And on the 27th i’l be leaving for Boston for a week and i hope to see some Zuners up in new england!
So my Zune Original shipped today. and whenever it comes in i’ll be making an unboxing video for it and it’ll be posted here and on the forum. probably around friday.
ANd i’m sorry for the lack of posts/activity on the forum. i’ve been sick for a week and i work at gamestop so now with holiday hours i’ve been there almost every day.
A LOT of you have been posting questions for your zune as replies here. Now i ask you to please go over to the forum and use our tech support section to ask your question and i’ll gladly help you out!
BTW, sorry i havn’t been around a lot. been really badly sick all week and i’ve been working a lot thanks to christmas.

This dosn’t ad anything else to Zune but as for media, the Xbox now supports DIVX movie files so all those AVI files you have around your computer can now play though your xbox using the media center extender (which requires windows vista premium or ultimate or windows xp media center edition)
and with that said, i’ll cya on the FORUMS
Our first and biggest story is that coming tomorrow will be our brand new forum. I ditched my original idea and went and redid everything for a totally new feel and at 7PM tomorrow night i’ll post the links here and we will be officially open. Though i wont be around for the first night for multiple reasons.
1) tired as hell from working on it.
2) heroes season finale
3) Patriots on monday night football.
But now aside from that, the forum has a lot of sections and post to your hearts content. We will also be having contests through the forum as well (though not sure when the first one will be). There is a wallpaper section for you to post your wallpapers and other members of the community will stop by from time to time. I know now with the Zune.net forums all open up they’re nice but here we’ve got something a bit more personal.
And in other news. At CompUsa this week you can get the Brown Zune 30 for $99 and a speaker dock for $59.99. cheers everybody and now i gotta go back to work finishing this sucker.
