ipod 30gb black - very nice ipod with very big memory size!

 | No, I wouldn't recommend this product.
Created: 11/08/11
Firstly, the iPod looks beautiful. It does attract finger marks but we all know that so i expected it. The machine itself works well. I had around 18Gb of songs to put on my player so i left it running over night. One annoyance is that when transfering songs the screen stays lit, although it does remind you not to remove the iPod as this could cause problems so i guess this is a good thing.
I bought the iPod to replace my iRiver H320 which i absolutely loved, but, it has to be said it was a bit of a brick. The iPod is half the thickness and the screen is half an inch bigger but otherwise the dimensions are more or less the same. The big differnce between the two is the sound quality. The iPod is reasonable, but the iRiver was amazing, if you're a total audiophile look elsewhere, i know i'm keeping my iriver for when i want a punchy sound. The iPod just can't manage the same bass range, it lacks a bit of punch. I'm using the same Sony MDR-EX71SLB Fontopia Headphones so it's not due to using a different set. The iPod though does create a reasonable sound. And in terms of battery? Well it's been on today for around 5 hours on medium volume and the meter says i have 3/4 of battery remaining (well on target for the 14 hours quoted for this 30Gb model), which is so far matching my iriver. Another advantage of the iPod is being able to make playlists on the go which i've not been able to do before and as i have so much music i really like to be able to make my own playlists.
The main disadvantage of the iPod over the iriver is the fact you have to use iTunes, don't get me wrong, it's a good programme, but the iriver is so much more flexible as it is treated just like a hard drive so you can just drag and drop music, photos, videos and they will play on the device. With iPod you have to first move stuff to iTunes and then sync. I'm also determined not to buy songs from iTunes, if i decide i want a new mp3 player i don't want to be limited to iPod, so for now i will still be buying and ripping cd's. Hopefully the movie download service will hit the UK soon. These can, with accessories be played through your tv via the iPod. Remember though that downloaded movies have all the digital rights management stuff attached to them, so again, maybe better to buy the dvd, rip it, and then convert it to play on your iPod

iPod is a useful little device. I'm comparing it to my iriver and it has advantages like ease of use (click wheel is so good for scrolling), on the go playlist maker and it's smaller and lighter than the iriver. However, the sound isn't as full and i constantly seem to be changing the EQ settings which is getting annoying, note you can't change each aspect, you have to choose from a preset, although there are enough presets to choose from. Also, my iriver came with lots of accessories, hard case with belt clip, charger, sennheiser headphones, in line remote control, it can play radio and it came with an external clip on battery pack, made it huge but a godsend for the occasional long trip (although accessories came at a price, the H320 was 20Gb and cost £270 although with all the extras the ipod will reach that as well) Also, the drag and drop set up of the iriver is so much more convenient than iTunes.

So, 3 stars, a good device but there are other just as capable machines out there. If you want strong sound go for something else.

Apple iPod Classic 5th Generation

Created: 02/12/10
The ipod Classic is a great version of the ipod family and I feel has many advantages over the other versions. They have large storage space (30GB, 80GB or 160GB depending on model) ideal for plenty of music, video clips, photo's etc. They are of good size so not to small to loose and just right for putting into your pocket older versions are a little more chunkier but still very portable.

Great for the sporty people out there and useful for long journeys. Has simple to use features easy enough for most people, with a menu button and wheel facility to navigate you will soon be listening to your favourite music.

Syncing with Itunes is straight forward, however my one comment is you cannot simply add more music rather than syncing your whole library. It would be nice to have a feature which only adds recent music to your ipod and not remove what is already on there as storing all your music files on your computer can take up a lot of space. Unless there is a feature I have missed somewhere.

Other advantages, is no need to keep mountains of cd cases everywhere as you can store your music on the ipod, many music centres now having docking stations so you just plug and play. Lots of add ons available to buy such as small portable speakers, great of in the park on picnics!

I have tried other MP3 players before but am now sold on the ipod classic, the large display is an advantage allowing greater ease of use. Everyone in the family have a classic version of the ipod!

Idiot proof technology not for geeks

Review for: Apple iPod classic 5th Generation (30 GB)
While I like the ease of use that you get with an iPod, I have found that it lacks the access I am used to with other mp3 players. I can not delete files using the iPod and when I remove the files from my pc, it simply doesn't sync correctly (ie. remove the files from my ipod). So, Instead, youre forced to remove them one by one from the itunes program.
I dont like the lack of playlist features.

My advice would be to save your money and buy a smaller and brand new mp3 player such as iRiver, Sony or Panasonic.

Good, but not the best.
When my Ipod Nano broke, so I sought out a new MP3. Many of my friends recommended a video Ipod because they had a massive amount of memory and the fact that they can play videos. So, looking at both white and black versions, I decided to get the black, I think it looks better. And, when I first got it I was very impressed.....

For holding 15,000 songs, or 25,000 photos, the Ipod is not bad in size standards. It is apparently smaller than the 30GB one. While listening to songs, you can see the album artwork as well, in vivid detail. Everything is in colour, the manufacturers boast about such technology. The videos are excellent as well, they sound just as good as the songs and look just as good as modern day TV, the timing between the sound and pictures is perfect. The games are decent, not that entertaining, but do look good in colour screen. My favourite game is `Music Quiz', where the Ipod plays a song and you have to guess which it is in a few seconds. The Ipod has a sensitive touch, when you move down play lists. The controls are very simple; you don't really even need to read a manual. The Ipod can go to really high volumes, but this can screw up the Apple headphones it comes with.
The only downside features wise is the fact that it isn't very durable and so if you scrape it then the black paint might come off, doesn't look very good. Talking about durability the screen can be scratched very easily, and any scratch always leaves a thin long white mark along the screen.

Now, why I only gave it four stars: Sometimes it will completely screw up. The Ipod will show no sign of life and you will think it is completely broken. To me this only happens for a few days, but it is extremely annoying. This usually happens when it is charging on the computer. I leave it in a room charging, come back a few hours later, and it will be turned off. I try to turn it back on, but it won't, then a few days later; it will be as good as new. But at least it has permanently messed up, yet...........

Overall this is an excellent machine in what it does; videos, songs, photos and memory. But in what YOU do with it, it isn't really that good. I really think the manufacturers where concentrating on all of the features. I really don't understand why it screws up roughly every two weeks, which is how often I charge it up because it plays 50hours of music when the battery is full. Well, the massive amount of good things overpower the bad things:
