Microsoft Tackles Audio and Video Devices with Zune

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.

    Absolutely Terrible. .
    Absolutely terrible.
    This is THE most problematic program on my PC and it's developed by Microsoft themselves! />Whenever I open it, it closes every other program I have running. It never connects to my phone properly and it also a hassle to use constantly freezing requiring me to end the program and restart it. The UI is also very convoluted and it is not clear where anything is. I'm not by any means a big fan of itunes as it to frustrates me from time to time but at least it doesn't close every program I have running when I click on the icon!
    Avoid ZUNE at all costs!
    Pros:
    Nothing
    Cons:
    Closes all programs upon opening
    Fails to connect to phone
    confusing interface
    updates often fail part way through
    often crashes
    takes a long time to open (I have a very capable PC and it handles every other program just fine)
