Forget Chipods, I'm getting a 30GB Zune for $99

I found this place after I got ripped off on a Chipod nano clone 4GB, that was really a 2GB. Ended up paying $29 after a partial rebate......not too bad.

However, I just found a deal that was too hard to pass up. Buy.com is selling the Brown 30GB Zune MP3 player for $99.99.



That seems like an awesome price for a 30GB legit MP3 player. If you're interested in buying one, be aware that player will not ship till Nov. 19th. Just thought I'd let you guys know. I'll still use my Chipod for it's size and portability though.

whats the big giggle for?
I've never had my hands on a zune.
What are they like?
I'm intrested in a large capacity player, but I don't like restrictions as far as grabbing music from a friends comp or giving them stuff from my player.
Are there any third party programs that allow better access to the memory for this type of thing? (like YamiPod for ipod)

Another goodies of the Zune I've read...

To synchronize the player it's needed a original version of Windows XP (no problem Smile)... in English!!! (What the f***!!???)... surely have to be Englis USA version.
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

gosh I love this copyright paranoid!!!

I really want to be wrong Smile

a nice player, maybe, never really looked at it, I personally wouldn't go anywhere near anything that supports DRM.

In fact I'd rather play music on cheap Actions, hacked, chinese ipod clone, than support DRM!

To each his own I suppose Smile

The reviews I've read on the Zune didn't impress me. Wi-fi enabled that's sole purpose is to share songs so whoever you send it to can only listen to it for 3 days? Sounds like a lot of extras added onto the player that are totally worthless. I admit, the price is interesting, but there has got to be a catch. I've noticed if you go to Buy.com and click on the See Details Link next to the List Price, I can't read the whole List Price Disclaimer. It cuts off some of the writing and you can't maximize the box to continue reading. Suspicious. Can anyone else read the whole thing?

If the deal sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. I would look long and hard before buying. The low price is guaranteed to get some impulse purchases without research.

Never mind, a copy and paste pulled up what I think is all of. Here it is:

"LIST PRICE" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our suppliers. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Because we sell our merchandise over the internet on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "YOU SAVE" reflects the difference between our price and the supplier provided list price shown on our sites. Because the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount and may want to make an exact comparison for yourself by checking the prices of other internet or local retailers prior to making a purchase.

Hmm, seems I found their loophole. It cuts the disclaimer off at "Because the list price may be different than the actual retails prices in your area, you may..."

Wouldn't be surprised it whoever has ordered this gets another bill for the whole amount. The $99 is most likely a pre-order hold.

I don't think there will be a problem with the price. The new Zunes come out on November 12th, and these will ship on November 19th. I'm pretty sure they just want to get rid of the old players when the new players are available. Plus, you can cancel or refuse delivery if they charge you anything other then what you bought it for.

Zune's play any and all DRM free MP3's.....they won't, however, play DRM'ed music from other sources like i-tunes, Napster, etc.....which I don't use anyway. Even if you have DRM'ed music, you could just download a program that will strip the DRM from the files.

Amazon just sold some for $99 like a week ago, and now their price is only $129. Woot.com sold a ton of refurbished ones for $99.

I trust buy.com more then I trust some random Chinese junk peddler.

"List Price" doesn't have anything to do with what you pay. They just show a "List Price" so you can see how much money you are saving. The price you pay is listed under "Our Price"....which is $99.

err..Brew, might be wrong about this but doesn't it wrap them up in DRM again if you try to send them to a mate for example?

I hope you're right Brew. It's just very hard to believe that a 30gb player is selling for $99 regardless of newer models coming into stock. 8gb players don't even sell for that. You might be correct on the List Price Disclaimer. It's all in the interpretation I guess. What I got out of it is that it could be used as an easy out option should they decide to tack on additional charges. After you pointed it out, I can also see your interpretation of it. Regardless, let us know how it goes and your thoughts on the Zune when you get it. Cool

Yes the Zune will apply a 3 day DRM to shared files that are wirelessly sent from one Zune to another.....but I don't think I've even seen another person with a Zune Laughing , and don't expect to do much (if any) sharing. Besides, other MP3 players can't do that anyway.

I'm sure there's even a hack to get around it if you really want to share wirelessly.

Sorry guys when an MP4 player get WiFi or connection with the net... immediately loose any attraction for me... I can forget that is a personal player... to use it as a PDA or server for the business of the merchants of music put it just a machine for fools

No pun intended Wink

Sorry again in music matters I am very sensitive
