Free Zune Download Services - Are They Really Free?
You have your new Zune
and you're looking to put as much music, video, movies etc.
on it as you can. One of the options is the free
music download sites.
Before you use one of these
sites it's worth comparing it with the more legitimate sites to
make sure you make the right decision. There are lots of
free music download software programs out there and more and more becoming
available every day.
Now, are these
sites really free?
Typically, the free download sites
have pop-ups, adware, spyware etc. They quite often have a
"Pro" version that don't have the ads
but these can actually be more expensive than some pay
sites. So they do come with a price - either you
end up paying more, or you have the annoying ads, and
potentially, viruses on your computer. In some extreme cases, it could mean
legal problems too!
Almost all pay sites come
with no pop-ups, technical support, privacy protection and a money-back guarantee
or free trial offer. This means that even if you don't
like the service there is little financial risk as you will get
your money back.
Some people think that they will try the free sites
first and then move to the pay sites if they need
to. That is all well and good, but the membership sites
only charge $30-$50 for lifetime membership. That's so inexpensive, is it really
worth the risk?
The best thing
to do is to research all the options and then choose
the service with the least risk and best value for money.
In most cases that will be the membership sites or the pay
per download sites.
