Talk about service: My Zune 80 order from Zune Originals arrived direct from China five days early! The devices were shipped from Zhuhai, China on December 3 and arrived in Kirkland, WA on December 5, via FedEx. That’s amazing considering shipping & handling is included. (I can’t ship anything to Spokane, WA in 2 days for free.)
Opening a Zune 80 original is unlike any electronics experience I have ever had. The unboxing alone should secure the innovative Zune Originals a slot on Oprah’s Favorite Things—I don’t watch Oprah. :ashamed:
Here is a gallery of pictures I took during the opening ceremony.
TB was humored by the whole unboxing thing. She thinks I’m a nerd.
My first impressions of the new Zune experience (player software, desktop software and the physical device) have each been largely positive. I need to use the device for a while before reporting back on the overall good, bad and ugly.
