"In a category dominated by one major brand, the Zune HD is a real game-changer!  It's a remarkable product that redefines interaction models and creates a new standard for 'great user experience.'  Everything about this product has been well considered and well designed from the packaging to the form factor to the Zune software to the product interface. It's elegant and beautiful.  The first time I picked up the Zune HD, I spent a couple of hours playing with it.  The whole experience was one of surprise and delight. I couldn't believe how good it was."  --Michelle Berryman, IDSA, Echo Visualization, LLC
