I only posted this yesterday. Fantastic bit of kit which is still not officially available to buy in the UK. :-D

bestpricebrands was where i found it but looks very dodgy only method of contacting them is by email which they can ignore if they want to and never heard of that site also.

Anyone ever ordered from them?

Looks a little too new for my liking.

Hmm ok

does any know any other retailers where i can get this from

I've read a few reviews of this and don't think I'd go for it - my advice is wait for a second generation.

Mind you, I'll be going to Chicago in Feb for a few days and will try to get a play on one somewhere...

Cheers, Dio :viking:

The most recent was in PCPro I think (may have been PCAdvisor) - a couple of weeks ago while waiting for a plane at Heathrow.

The main concern was the poor functionality of the wi-fi module and it's synchronising bugs.

ohh, i heard how they were going to improve on them by updates and accesories in the future

I WANT A ZUNE!!

But dont want to use ebay or that website that looks dodgy.

Anywere else to get them?

Hece my suggestion to wait for a second generation :-)

Well, maybe, maybe not... ;-)

i need a new mp3player and i dont want a ipod and dont want to wait for a second gen as it will be atleast 1 year till they come out or more,

Personally I'm a fan of Creative - but I just want the basics - ie an MP3 player, not a video player, nor a photo viewer.

I generally copy audio books to mine and it plays them fine - worth looking at

im the opposite i want a multi media player and this one has a big screen and unscratchable case which makes the mp3player look new always

ZUNE!!!! im gonna see if my friend will get me one in america i think there only around £100

Like the dog licking it's bits: because it can ;-)

But seriously, MS are doing it with Vista too - huge diferences between here and the states.

When I'm over there, I'm tempted to buy Vista ultimate...

The strong pound also has a bit to do with it,at nearly $2 to £1 it makes everything in America cheap!

oh yeh forgot about that, but still does anyone know which retailers have zune

Trust me when I say don't buy from Bestpricebrands! The experience I went through was hell! I had to wait for weeks and weeks for my MP3 player to arrive. The thing that got to me even more is that they didn't inform me that it comes with a USA power plug. I'm in the UK dumbos! I can't even get hold of them through email or phone for advice. The funny thing is I'm not the only person moaning about them in the forums! Checkout the pertition about them in Yahoo Answers about illegal software being sold to the UK.
