iPod vs. Zune Stackup Graph

Apple's distinctive MP3 player holds its own against the most serious competition to come along since mini-disc players. The Zune isn't disliked, it just lacks the popularity of the iPod.

Based on the results, iPod is clearly the best compared to the other choices. You might want to consider buying it from Amazon.

Also, it looks like Zune is obviously worse than the others, so you might want to avoid it.
