    Looking for an MP3 player for a good price?

    Woot : One Day, One Deal (SM)

    Today they are selling a refurbished Microsoft Zune 30 GB Digital Media Player for $105 (shipping included). The price was enough to convince me to buy my first MP3 player, so I purchased one. I know it's refurbed, but as long as it's not scratched all to hell and works like a charm I don't mind.

    Note: MS will be releasing the Zune 2.0 (80 GB) in November and along with that will come a free firmware update for the 30 GB Zune. Can't go wrong with that.

    Now, we'll see how it looks in about a week or so.

    *Edit, could a MOD please add "player" after MP3 in the title please? Thanks.

    That same zune was like $59 during the woot off. But it went super fast.

    Wow. Too bad I didn't see that. This is still a good deal though!

    My buddy has one and he says that his screen freezes pretty often. And sometimes the backlight doesn't work.

    Re: Looking for an MP3 player for a good price?

    You could have got one for the same price and non-referb at buy.com.

    Buy.com - Microsoft Zune 30GB Digital Multimedia Device (Brown)- Audio Player, Video Player, Photo Viewer, FM Tuner - 3'' LCD - 30GB Hard Drive - JS8-00003

    I am am going to wait until the day after thanksgiving, I think you are going to see some good deals on MP3 players then.

    Re: Looking for an MP3 player for a good price?

    True you could have got it new at buy.com for the same price, but I wanted it now. I don't think there will be a huge difference in refurbished vs. new except a few scratches possible. The refurb is still covered by a 1 year warranty, so if it does happen to stop working you can trade it in.

    New ones aren't immune to defects either.

    I almost bought one from a kid on facebook marketplace. Turns out to be a good thing I didn't, found out it was stolen.
