Refurbished vs New Zune  
So I was thinking of giving an 8 Gb Zune as a gift this Christmas; I found a few good deals, but most of them involve the word "refurbished". How is a refurbished Zune different from a "used" Zune? Should I make the leap and buy a refurbished Zune as opposed to just getting a new one (it certainly would be cheaper)? Any experience you've had with refurbished Zunes? Thanks!

If you're buying a refurbished item from a store, it's usually been confirmed that it's previously owned but functions as new. Usually refurbished electronics are just as good as unopened/brand new items - if not then the returns system is fairly forgiving and in your favour.

My two of my three Zunes were refurbished ones I bought through woot. The first one was a Zune 30 that lasted well until a few months ago when a one foot drop made the hard drive die. The second is a Zune 80 which has been going really strong since then.

Refurbished units are items that have been returned on warranty, repaired, and tested as functional. They can be a great deal. If you want an 8GB Zune, you don't have a choice. They're no longer being made, though stock is still being sold where avaialble.
