Yeah, for a limited support music player and extremely picky video player, essentially a Phlips Go device, the Zune HD shouldn't cost more than $150-200.

For the 32gb.

That's because Target won't be carrying the Zune HDs. They didn't re-up their contract with Microsoft for the Zunes, or so I've heard; they're just selling the remaining stock of the older units.

Hasn't 'it's coming soon' been what Microsoft has been saying for years? It hasn't happened yet, and I haven't seen evidence it will be. Buyer beware, and all that.

If I find that the Bluetooth connectivity is un-crippled (I doubt that's a real word) on the Touch, then I'll jump on the rumored 64 gb one. I want to be able to access 3G on a Touch from a...

I hear you, but why all the ranting? Most of the Cowon and Samsung players support Divx/Xvid; just buy one of those.

Scrolling titles in Zune 80?

Hey gang:

A good portion of my music, about half, is split between classical music and foreign music which tend to have long track and/or album titles. In my other mp3 players---an Insignia...

As an owner of a Zune 80, my only wish-list item for the Zune HD is that Microsoft decides to open the device up a bit more than they have.

Be careful with the Pilot; the screen is very sensitive.

I think a Cowon player would better fit your needs. The Zune is cool, but from what I've read, something like the Cowon A3 or the new Cowon O2 are superior devices for video playback.
