|With a Zune digital media player you can enjoy your favorite sounds wherever you are. Whether you're on a plane, in the office, on the subway, or standing in line, the device can take you away to a beautiful concert hall, a funky jam session of your favorite band, or to any land captured on video for your enjoyment. You can dial into your favorite FM stations, and because the Microsoft Zune 80 features Wi-Fi connectivity, movies and other recorded programming are available anytime, anywhere. The device can store thousands of songs, or about 250 hours of video recordings, as well as pictures and podcasts. Share your data with your PC via any USB port, and make this your traveling PC extension. The device was first released in 2007 with premium in-ear earphones that are compact and easy to store in any purse or backpack. They have a magnetic back that prevents damage to the wire when coiled around each other. Say 'goodbye' to boredom and 'hello' to on-the-go entertainment.|

The 80GB Microsoft Zune MP3 player features a 3.2-inch glass LCD; a user-friendly interface; exceptional navigation control; audio and video podcast support; a superlative FM radio with RBDS information; wireless syncing and sharing; high-quality earphones; revamped Zune Marketplace PC software; Zune Pass subscription music support; good audio quality; and a built-in composite-video output.
The Zune is a PC-only device that requires its own software and still does not support older WMA-DRM9 music files; Zune Marketplace does not offer TV or movie downloads; the USB connection is proprietary; no Wi-Fi music streaming; and the EQ feature has been removed.
The Zune has blossomed from an ugly duckling into a worthy iPod alternative.
