I'm pleased with my sansa. Mp3 players are nice but I'm not going to spend $100+ to listen to music.

I love all the registration crap MS puts you through like they mentioned in that review.

The trickiest part was reading that tiny little number on the back.

Yeah, I agree, I had my iSkin on it at the time, so I had to take it back off. Is that like a crash?

I think it's interesting that almost all reviews I've seen out focus on the software and the store.
I really could care less. You can use iTunes as a Jukebox on your computer and use Zune's software just to sync the Zune.
And who buys music, come on

From what I've heard of the device itself, it's not that bad.

Anyone have any personal experience with the either?

Well they're obviously going to update the software and get it working within days. Some people actually got it to install fine also, so it's not completely borked.

Yeah Choopie. This is Microsoft we are talking about here. They always put out timely updates to fix major problems.

Always.

That justifies it? So gasoline that makes some cars explode, but makes others work (slowly) would still be pwn gas?

Well, you don't die when your software crashes, and I didn't say it was pwn, I'm just trying to make sure people realize that it's not a 100% failure rate, like apple fanboys would like to believe.
