The second “gadget investment” I did is a Zune . The brown version ….

One of my colleagues brought me one back from Redmond last Thursday (thanks Rene πŸ˜‰ ). As I already have a Creative Portable Media Center (PMC), this will now soon be on marktplaats.

Compared to the PMC, the Zune on has 1 disadvantage so far, it does not automatically converts Media Center Recorded TV when syncing. There is ofcourse plenty 3rd party software available to convert these files to WMV format. Reason I use this, is to catch up with recorded TV while I am travelling and so avoid the B-movies on the plane …

The advantages over the PMC are : size (no .. it’s smaller whereas the screensize is almost the same); 30GB HD vs 20GB HD; (more to follow as I gain experience with it).

Installing the Zune software on Vista gave some challenges as this is not yet supported (will be once Vista is launched for consumers). I installed the internal dogfoodbuild which works superb …. Linked the Zune Music Library to my MediaCenter and … was able to sync all without a hassle.
