If you want music on the move then an iPod is a must.

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Created: 08/06/11
These are the market leaders in mp3 music players though they have now been overtaken by the newer generation of Touch iPods and iPhones. These are still well worth getting for the massive memory. To give you an idea, I've spent ages putting in 295 CDs and that has taken a little over 30Gb, so with 160 to play with it's enough to take quite a large collection of music.
The iPod classic has the famous click wheel button controls on the front which make navigation easy.
For me the Ipod is let down by a couple of things which are to do with software. iTunes scans CDs very quickly but can split albums into different albums if there are different artists on a CD. It isn't very good at importing files you may already have on your computer. I have a number that I have for my Sony phone, but it doesn't seem to recognise them properly and categorises them as Unknow Artist. In the end I just scanned in the CDs again.
Because it doesn't work like a memory stick or hardrive, you can't add videos etc as I could with my cheapo Mp4 player. I tried to import some old Quicktime videos from my camera and it doesn't recognise them.
It worked with photos but tries to import a whole folder, so it's best to make a dedicated ipod photos folder. That can be a bit of pain as you have to copy things and do a bit of extra faffing about to get the pics you want.
Another grip is the Equaliser settings don't do a great deal and I would have like some user adjustable tone settings rather than presets.
Still, this is mainly a music player and that it does very well. A little loss in quality is noticeable to my ears, but this isn't meant to be hi-fi. Having a huge collection of music on a small device like this is great. It keeps everything to hand rather than having to look under the sofa for that lost album.
Nowadays a lot of cars have an Ipod connection fitted so these things are useful to many people. It's a bit of a shame you have to also need a computer and have to store everything on your harddrive. It'd be nice if things could be stored elsewhere or independant of a computer, but for now this is as good as it gets.

Apple iPod classic 6th Generation 80 GB

Review for: Apple iPod classic 6th Generation (80 GB)
I previously owned a YP-U2 2GB mp3 player which lasted over 3 years which still works and has never let me down however as my music collection has grown I needed a larger music device to put it on.
My friends highly recommended an iPod as there was so much more to offer.
To begin with I was hesitant as I knew the prices on them were very expensive, however after my friends agreed to help find me find one we decided to shop around.
Ebay was the first and only place we looked on and I was shocked at some of the starting prices for the newer models and ones with over 120GB I was looking at over £150!
I started to look for smaller and thought 80GB would be more than enough.
After some searching I came accross a 'buy it now' offer on 3 iPod, all of which were 80gb 6th gen classic iPods within my price range.
The first of which had no pictures of the iPod... I'm sorry but anyone who is interested in buying an iPod I would recommend having pictures of the product you are buying.
The next one had a picture which was not of the iPod for sale, yet again I would only buy an iPod with a genuine picture, this way you know exactly what your buying, the condition of the product and how much the owner cared for the product.
The final iPod on my search was the one I bought.
It had 3 pictures of the product and it was in beautiful condition, it had a small list of videos and tv shows already on it and a few games to try out.
The price I was looking at was £80 and for a second hand iPod that was a bargain compared to rest of the searches I came back with, some 80GB iPods went up to £110!
Upon recieving the product and playing around with it I found it a brilliant new electronic addition to the family. The sound quality was the best I've ever heard, the video quality was brilliant for a 2 1/2 inch screen and the options of what I could do were enough to keep myself occupied however I did find one or two flaws to the iPod perhaps compared to an mp3 or other music devices.
The first one is the controls and navigation.
When scrolling through your music you have to slide your finger around the centre button which sometimes may not be picked up specially when you first switch it on, this also can be very frustrating or difficult with any games you play on your iPod as moving in certain directions means you having slide you finger instead of simply pressing up or down.
It is also not very reliable for long distance runners like myself who like to skip songs.
I have an armband which you can slide your iPod into instead of holding the product, it looks smart on your arm and does give you the space to hold a water bottle in your hand however there is the issue of skipping tracks, when running fast it's hard to tap the skip button without turning the volume up or down, pausing the track or going into the menu, this can also be frustrating.
The last issue I personally had which would not be an issue for perhaps others is that there is no play speed option on the iPod unlike the YP-U2 I previously owned.
This option enables you to slow down or speed up your music to suit you. For example If you wanted to play guitar and copy a song at a slower speed as a beginner, or for example like myself if you like to speed up the song to run to and generally prefer the song to be faster.
I still cannot put the iPod down, it is the best technology you can get around and can barely be faltered however because of the few minor issues I have I rate the product 4/5

This is a review on a second hand item

Bought this to consolidate all my music onto one device and for future storage!

First look, massive storage (just what i wanted)
Works with my cars (BONUS)

So looked at it didn't think twice!

Firstly,

Easy setup plugged into iTunes wiped it then setup for my own use

(only downside) Took me ages to get over 6000 tracks onto the iPod in bulk about 4hrs

Easy to use on the thumb wheel search for the tracks then boom playing in about a second or two (got to realise you are playing with a mini hard drive so has to spool up)

Menus on screen customisable easy to get straight to playing music or playlists

syncs all your music and playlists from iTunes with one click of the mouse! (as i said IDIOTPROOF!)

Really idiot proof! Brilliant sound quality when using high value bit rates and good headphones!

Awesome bit of kit especially if you have a lot of music and you do your fair share of long journeys and travelling around!

I use this iPod everyday and it doesn't miss a beat!

It is a little dated specially as it doesn't have the mod cons such as bluetooth and a speaker but to be honest this is better! keep it simple stupid philosophy in principle (thinking of deleting all my music off my phone)

Would highly recommend a case for it!

In summary

For this item if you have a lot of music and you are going to use it everyday awesome buy

if you have a moderate collection would go for a lower size model.

I have not regretted it at all!

Apple Ipod 160gb

Created: 25/01/11
Truly an amazing piece of kit.This is the big boy of the ipods,a whopping 160gb.
I suppose i am luck to hold over 500gb of itunes material so i have enough to fill one of these however i always keep a little spare as i also use it as an external hard drive and let my friends take off what they want from it,so excellent to keep other information on also.It has a fantastic battery life,is very user friendly and the last time i went on holiday it came in handy for my kids as i had some disney films on and because the weather was bad it kept them happy as with the correct lead you can watch your films through any tv.These have always been a good buy as even a couple of years down the line you may still get your money back if you find you have no need for it.I cannot do without mine,i practically fall asleep every night with it on,far better than any book,what with games on it,films,music,podcasts there is so much it can do.If you get the chance get one of these and you will never look back.There is 6 of us in the family and we all have one and the house is so quiet sometimes (fantastic ) 10/10 from me.

Review for: Apple iPod classic 6th Generation (80 GB)
I previously owned a 16GB iPod Touch 2nd Gen which I was very happy with and used everyday for four years. However there was never enough space on the iPod for all my music and I never used the apps I downloaded so after the iPod stopped functioning properly I opted to get an 80GB iPod Classic.

When the iPod Classic arrived I was immediately pleased with the aesthetics of the device. The smooth matte black finish looks gorgeous and the weight of the device isn't too heavy but heavy enough to feel like it's worth something.

Space wise this iPod is much better. I can fit all my music on the device, lots of photos and all my videos, films and TV series with no trouble.

The volume is a little quieter than the iPod touch but it isn't too quiet at all. I can happily walk through a crowd without outer sound overpowering my music. Also I think the iPod touch may have been too loud - I think I was damaging my hearing with how loud I used to have it.

I've heard people say that the screen size of the iPod Classic is too small to enjoy video but I completely disagree. I've found that the screen size is optimum for personal on-the-go viewing.

After owning an iPod touch for years I was worried that the click-wheel interface would seem primitive, annoying and fiddly compared with the quick reacting touch screen but it isn't at all. I've found it to be a quick and efficient way of scrolling through my media.

Just make sure you get a good strong case to protect your iPod because as we all know, they easily scratch!
