Microsoft has arguably created a hefty amount of devices along the years and it's probable that none have been as controversial as the Zune. Made to compete against the giant that was Apple's iPod Microsoft's Zune had a king to dethrone. Could the Zune software suite be enough?

It's Powerful and it Works

The fact that it does what it's supposed to do which is to play music and video shouldn't be worth the fanfare yet if you've ever shopped for miniature audio and video playback devices you'll have no doubt found that quality isn't always guaranteed. Don't be fooled by the low price the Zune is a great quality product.

A User Interface That Understand Its Users

If there's one thing that Microsoft takes to heart it's the knowledge that an easy-to-use User Interface goes a long way. With big icons responsive buttons and clear menus users will find browsing the Zune to be effortless and enjoyable. With a market saturated with strong competitors Microsoft's only possible advantage comes in the shape of its platforms. Backed by a powerful proprietary search engine and a slew of developers a Zune software won't be found on other platforms. If you've fallen in love with specific Microsoft branded apps then the Zune is the place to go.
