You have to charge it on the computer. It can't be charged by plugging into the wall unless you buy an AC adapter. The "sync" is the way it downloads music, pics, and videos into the zune. It is awesome!

I can't believe they did not do a BOC... What is a woot off without one??? Ugh...I am glad I did not stay up for this one. To answer the above poster, yet I have gotten a BOC before and a few others on here have as well.

Thanks for the info. After doing some internet searching for other reviews, I am soooo on the fence about this one. My 11yr old DD keeps saying that she wants an "Ipod" for Christmas. I guess that I'll wait and hope for some killer deal on one closer to Christmas.


Don't give up hope, usually Apple runs specials on ipods that are refurbished and they are awesome deals. Last year you could get the ipod shuffle for $29. Keep yours eyes peeled on this site and someone will let you know ;) Last year they did it early in the morning around 6 am and they would sell out before 10 am.

Its not really a sale, its a woot off, they have a certain number and when they are gone, they are gone. They may bring in something else but its like a big clearing house or something like that, they get refurbs or lots of items and puts them up for sale until they are gone. It can sell out quickly or go on for awhile

True, except I have seen it advertised on at least three deal sites with many people stating they are at least buying one, I just wonder how many of these units they have?:fluffy: Maybe not a good sign if there are so many refurb units???

< It's really easy to sync., and it charges while you're doing that. My dh does most of the stuff like any updates or sync stuff. >


Thanks for the info! One question though. Please excuse my lack of knowledge. What does this mean? The sync. thing? Does this require being hooked to the pc to charge? Is there a way to charge it using the wall outlet?

Any extra accessories that would be helpful?

Thanks so much!



Actually, there is a wall charger, but you have to buy it separately. We do both--computer and wall charging.
If not today, maybe tomorrow...:mail:

We love Zunes here. My husband got one when they first came out, and he has absolutely loves it. He is a previous iPod user, and much prefers the Zune. My DD will get one for her 16th BD next week, and that's all she's talking about (besides wanting a car, of course!). We got it from Woot the first time in August. My 11 yo DS will get one of these black ones for Christmas. As far as for buying an older one, you can update it to have almost all the features of the newer ones, so you won't be missing out. I think really the only thing that won't be updated is the file types for movies. One neat new thing is that they will now sync with your Media Center recordings. The new ones will be 80GB, so those are huge! They will be $249, like they were before. They are also coming out with Flash versions, that are kinda like the shuffle, but have a screen and also play video. Those are 4 MB and 8MB, and will cost $149/$199. So this Woot deal is really a good deal. One last thing, is they have a really nice subscription service. The software can be installed on 3 computers, and have separate playlists. The kids are already loving that! HTH someone!

Seems like a good deal. Overstock.com is selling the refurb models for $94.99. (The woot model is also refurbished.)

This is almost getting tempting. Just a note that these are refurbished, so if you are thinking of it for a gift, it probably won't be in retail packaging.

If you prefer a white or black Zune, and don't mind paying a little more for them you can get them at Sellout.Woot for $105 shipped. These are also refurbies.

http://sellout.woot.com/

When you click the link you may be redirected to Yahoo Shopping, but at that point you can click on the Woot item in the center of the page.
