The Zune I snagged on the latest woot-off arrived a few days ago. Unfortunately, the unboxing ceremony was not very well attended. That's okay, because after a DOA false-alarm, the Zune was charged up, synced, and customized.

Feature for feature it isn't as flexible as my Creative Zen Vision:M, but the Zune has a straightforward interface and style that simply plays media files with no frills or fanfare. It only supports WMV formatted videos, which is fine with me given my considerable experience working with the file format. I've got some accessories in transit that will round-out my Zune experience.
