Zune HD Review

Zune HD Review

This powerful and elegantly designed media player proves that Microsoft is back in the game.

4 stars
(4 out of 5)

The Zune HD is seen by many as a too-little-too-late attempt at challenging the iPod touch, but it’s a formidable portable media player in its own right. Its multitouch OLED touchscreen makes everything from the intuitive interface to TV shows and movies pop; the integrated HD Radio is great for discovering new music, and you can output HD content right from the Zune HD to your TV (with an optional accessory). We also like the integrated Web browser, even though its not best in class. Microsoft has a long way to go to catch up to Apple in the apps department, but the Zune HD is a slick and satisfying device that will get better with age.
