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.
