Closing Tweeter Store Has "A Bunch Of Zunes"

If you’re in the market for a Zune, you might want to check your local (closing) Tweeter store because they are experiencing a glut according to Reader Andrew, who sent in this photo.

    I just signed up for a Microsoft event in the Chicago area, and was told all attendees would be given Zunes… another sign the Zune Glut continues in full swing.

  2. Raanne says:

    Maybe the fact that they are only discounting them 20% off in a closing store, is why they have so many of them left…

  3. the cultural icon says:

    They are 198 on the tweeter website. I wonder what that dollar is about.

  4. kara70 says:

    Most distributors don’t allow any Zunes to be returned to them, so resellers who brought them in are stuck with their current inventory until sold, somehow.

    If you really want a Zune, you can probably name your own price.

  5. dohtem says:

    Staples now carries them for $199.

    I wouldn’t mind a Zune but it has to be heavily discounted for me to consider it.

    Already even the word Zune sounds so 2006.

    and iPod sounds so Trustfundy

  8. revmatty says:

    Yes, because the $79 entry level iPod is so overpriced compared to the comparable $74 Creative entry level MP3 player…

  9. As someone who saw this abortive effort forming up almost a year ago, I almost hate to say “I told you so”.

    What did Zune give the market? Nothing that wasn’t already offered from other, standards-based vendors in a more stylish, similarly-priced package.

    Microsoft Mee-Tooism at work.

    Creative labs has a player called the stone, its 40 bucks and is the only comparable player to the shuffle that creative sells. Products at the 74 dollar level boast a far greater deal of features, like a screen.

    If you’re in the market for a Zune, you might want to check your local psychiatrist.

  13. finnadat says:

    i’ll buy a couple when they filter down to tuesday morning – it is just a matter of time..

    @ mwwilk: What event is this?

  15. ObtuseGoose says:

    maybe i’ll just squirt myself over to the nearest tweeter store and have a look see (or i’ll just stick with my ipod and shuffle)

  16. hop says:

    im really out of it…..what’s a ZUNE??????????

  17. J.T Dabbagian says:

    I’d actually like a Zune…people can come up to me and ask “WTF is that,” and I’ll say “It’s a poor man’s iPod!”

    Seriously, I would buy it. The Zune is nice and big, and the iPod would disappear from my hands an hour after I bought one. Of course, the way the Zune is going down the shitter, I can wait a month or so.

    Next week, the sign will read “For the love of god, SOMEBODY buy these things! It’s too expensive to bury them somewhere.”

  19. FLConsumer says:

    or better…who would want to steal a Zune?

  20. superbmtsub says:

    Zunes and iPods are both big pieces of turds. Only difference being that Zune has an FM Radio (and a useless Wireless card) but the iPod looks cooler.

    Funny story. One of my friends sister bought a Zune cuz she liked the large screen. Then she had a ton of problems setting it up on her *wait* Windows XP laptop so she returned it.

    Conclusion: She bought an iPOD Nano and had no trouble syncing it up on her HP laptop running XP.

    Moral: The Zune is a real turd among turds.

    hop: How can you expect anyone to tell you, using only 10 “?”s. You gotta use at least 15, or you’re not trying hard enough.

  22. @revmatty: $50 on the apple refurbed store!! $54 with sales tax and free shipping.

    I like my iPod. Thanks.
