Greetings, limoliberal!

I tried Epinions and MySimon, but both offered a *very* limited number
of suppliers.

Froogle seems to provide the best results for a large number of suppliers:
http://froogle.google.com/froogle?q=zune&lmode=online&brand=Microsoft&num=100&scoring=p&lnk=pruser&price1=100&price2=&btnP=Go

I've selected everything over $100 (anything under that is an
accessory), and sorted by price.

There doesn't appear to much variance in price, however, because the
product is so new. Because of that, you might be better served by
selecting a store that offers a high level of Customer Service and
Support, and which has a good satisfaction rating. Remember that a
store where the item is slightly less expensive store may end up being
more expensive (not to mention time and aggravation) if you need
service or warranty support. Often a store which has an outlet in your
city is a better choice, because you can drop the item off for repair
rather than having to pay for shipping.

You *can* purchase on eBay, however, if you choose to do this, I would
be VERY careful. Be sure to follow recommendations for safe eBay
buying:

 Check the seller's feedback rating. If they have any negative
comments, find them and read them.
 Read the *entire* auction page thoroughly, so you know the condition
of the item, and any special restrictions the seller may have
specified.
 Make sure you know the terms of their return policy.
 Make sure you know the shipping cost upfront; some eBay sellers make
their money on exhorbitant shipping charges.
 Make sure that you pay for Insurance and that the seller will have
item tracking, so they can't claim falsely that they sent it even
though you never received it.
 Use PayPal or a similar system, which will help you retrieve your
money in the case of an item that is damaged, or never arrives.
 NEVER buy from a seller outside of the eBay bidding system. You have
NO protections whatsoever if you do this.
