The Bottom Line The Zune HD delivers one of the best portable music and video experiences money can buy. At a time when many people have shifted their focus to games and applications, providing a killer media experience may not be enough for potential Zune buyers. When it comes to competing with Apple's iPod Touch media player, the Galaxy Player 4.2 is Samsung's best effort yet, but it's still playing catch-up. The second-generation iPod Touch includes features that are light-years ahead of the competition, its design has improved, and its price has finally come down to earth. SanDisk's tongue-twister of an MP3 player is a stupefying value and its practical clip-on design is perfect for the gym. Logitech's Z-2300s have been on the market for more than half a decade, but these PC speakers still pack a sonic wallop.
