I would love to win this giveaway.


From Gail on February 01, 2010 :: 1:51 pm

My oldest son has an older version of Zune and my youngest just received the new HD Zune for Christmas. They are rarely seen without the devices in their hands. It would be wonderful to win a new one!


From Jacquelyn Cannon on February 01, 2010 :: 2:02 pm

My daughter is a nut for technology. Great giveaway!


From Shelley Mitchell on February 01, 2010 :: 2:49 pm

From Deanna on February 01, 2010 :: 3:16 pm

My best friend is obsessed with her Zune and I’d like to see if it stacks up to my iPod (her hubby - a reformed iPod user - loves it too).  Please enter me!


From Brett on February 01, 2010 :: 3:55 pm

From Joshua on February 01, 2010 :: 7:18 pm

i’d love to win the fact that it has the fm tuner.


From Mitch Samuels on February 01, 2010 :: 7:19 pm

Wow! I was looking up reviews for this today. Last week my iPod went through the washer when my kid forgot to check pockets when he did laundry. I was thinking of switching to a Zune HD. The design of these look so cool! I love how small they are. I have downloaded the software, and switched over from iTunes, just to try, and I love it! The iTunes software looks like WORK compared to zune’s software! It’s actually fun to use. I just wish I had a player to use with it. Thanks! ~Mitch


From John Stetson on February 01, 2010 :: 7:23 pm

I’m a subscriber and would love to win this great prize.  Thanks for the chance.


From Elizabeth on February 01, 2010 :: 8:21 pm

I subscribed and would absolutely love the Zune HD, well at least from the review I have been reading.  I do not have the extra money to buy one, but it would be absolutely just amazing if I could win this.  Finally! a good mp3 that I don’t have to use iTunes with(:


From Beth Randolph on February 01, 2010 :: 9:15 pm

interested, heck yeah.


From Andre on February 01, 2010 :: 9:57 pm

I would like to win this ZUNE HD because I have never owned an MP3 player before (because they are so darn expensive and the ones I can afford are not as full featured as the ZUNE HD) and I think it would be a great way for me to enjoy my music library instead of listening from my laptop most of the time. I did some research on the ZUNE and love its slender design and how the interface looks and works.

Plus, I am using the new Windows 7 which should work great with it. Apart from just owning the ZUNE HD, I have a large library of music and I could load most of my videos and pictures on it and use the cool social features to communicate with other ZUNE users and share my musical interest with them. I could also use it to check email and browse my favorite sites on the go (including Techlicious). Lugging around a laptop all the time can be a bit of a chore, having this device eliminates that. Hope I win, and good luck to everyone else.


From minnie on February 01, 2010 :: 10:53 pm

It would be such a thrill and exciting time to win the contest. A Zune HD is an awesome prize to win. Therefore, I will “THINK WIN” until the day of the drawing.
  I’ve never owned an iPod or an MP3. To have this opportunity to maybe win a Zune HD is wonderful. It’s an amazing thought to own a Zune HG. I’ll just have to be patient to see the contest results.
  To win would be such a Blessing. Good Luck to all of you hoping to win.

From Kencito on February 02, 2010 :: 12:28 am

I’m interested in the giveaway. I particularly like the HD radio feature with the option to highlight songs for later purchase.


From aida on February 02, 2010 :: 12:30 am

love the radio and wi-fi!


From Nick Miller on February 02, 2010 :: 1:04 am

Would love to win this contest.  I’ve been a Zune using for a couple of years now.  The software and hardware both work great.  Unfortunately, last summer I dropped my Zune(old 30 GB version) in the garage - which busted the screen -

Busted screen or not, she still plays music and videos like a dream.  Even if I can’t watch the videos. wink
