MP3 Player Comparison: 80 gb REFURBISHED Zune vs. 8 gb Samsung P2

From the best buy Online and in store flyers. If you haven't seen, the P2 is $100 (50% off) and the zune is refurbished selling at $150. Which would you recommend in terms of the better player? (Though I know the players are hardly comparable due to the HUGE difference in hd space)

Also, should I be a little hesitant in buying the Zune due to the fact that it's refurbished, or should I be fine? Could I take it into best buy and go with a three year warranty if I do buy the Zune?

Personally, I'm thinking about the Zune. You can in theory hack the zune so it will play any file you want - if you are prepared and know what you're doing. 80 gig vs 8 is an easy decision.

However... the Zune isn't a person-friendly device. Unless you're a techno geek, you may want to avoid it. Cheers. :-0

80 GB Zune is pretty hot at $150. But how do you hack into it?
