    Another vote for: Neither!

    I currently have a Sansa Fuze. Had it for about a year and half now, still works and looks new. I love it, it's awesome and yet costs half the price (or less) of an iPod.

    Samsung makes some great audio players, I've used several of those. Especially if you demand exceptional sound quality.

    The iPod is over-rated. I have seen so many of these break, especially the newer iterations of the last several years.

    Don't know much about the Zune, except Microsoft sells it.. and if another company's product is comparable, I'd rather buy that.

    Re: Zune vs iPod

    I use my Blackberry 9780 for music/video. If I ever decide that the 32 GB in my phone isn't enough I would definitely buy a Sansa or Cowon. Both are great music players and have a even better price.


    PS. Don't get a Blackberry. The only reason I have one is because my plan forced me to get one. The OS is slick an all but the Apps aren't there like Android. It works well, really well, you just can't do much with it. It sits in my pocket and is basically a regular phone because I can't find anything to install on it. No sense in having it called a "smart phone"

    Re: Zune vs iPod

    Sorry for the extreme lateness of looking back at this thread. But i just have one question for ppl that support ipod. Minus the apps for the iTouch and iPhone, whats good about iPods? Ive had such major problems with iPod i would say nothing.

    But i do have to admit in the end that the apps can be fun

    Re: Zune vs iPod

    I have zune, I like it better than ipod, but it doesn't work worth a **** in linux which is really annoying. Apple isn't exactly linux-friendly either but at least it is possible to use a good number of ipod models in linux.

    It's funny that there are only 2 choices in this poll and it's multiple choice.

    I agree. Although I dislike apple in general, $40 for a mint condition ipod touch was too good to resist. But when it dies, that will be the end of apple products for me.

    But like you said, at least it works in linux, which is more than I can say about zune. Oh the horror!

    You did buy a first generation ipod, right? That's your answer. I never buy 1st gen. anything. I've heard good things about later generation players. Plus, I have a 2nd gen. iTouch and have had not one problem with it.

    What do I like about it? It's like having a mini computer at all times with me. Wifi, safari web browsing, youtube, videos, music, espn sportscenter, note taking, and a bunch of other stuff. I'm just thankful it works in linux. And the touchscreen response is without peer.

    This is assuming you just want to listen to music. The Fuze is a music player, with no apps whatsoever.
