Weird, the video seemed sponsored by MS and still wasn’t completely positive. I found it odd about the brightness controls, since the iPod 5G and 5.5G has brightness controls. Also, the Zune screen and the iPod screen are both 320×240, which makes the zune lower res.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion (including CNET ;), but I appreciate their generally balanced assessment. Best thing to do is see the unit for yourself in the store.

On the screen resolution, they may be the same but I found that the larger screen provides an improved and clear viewing experience over smaller screens. I found that 320×240 looks fine on the 3" scree for SD recorded content from my Media Center, as well as the starter content on the Zune.
