Poll of the Day - Do reviews influence your purchasing decisions?

It's the end of the week and that means one thing on Hardware 2.0 - Poll of the Day!

This week the media has been dominated by one thing - the launch of Microsoft's Zune media player.  Now, I don't know about you but I've been spending a lot of time reading reviews of this new gadget and I have to admit that I haven't been impressed by what I've been reading.  A large proportion of the reviews that I came across were superficial and not really reviews at all but at best basic "first impressions".  I've held off making any comment on the Zune itself until I get some serious time to play with it.  There's no point.  I think that everyone has had enough "unboxings" (what is it with all those reviews that details the "unboxing" of the products anyway - seems weird to me) and "first impressions" articles to last a lifetime.

What's the best and worst review of the Zune that you came across this week?

Anyway, this brings me to today's poll ...
