Title tells purchasers what they are expecting to buy

Review for: Apple iPod touch 2nd Generation Black (8 GB)

Firstly, I must point out I have not purchased an Apple iPod nor would I want one.
I bought the first Apple iPod nano several years ago....most of the time it lays idle, not much use for it.
The most irritating thing about iPod is having to use iTunes. iTunes itself is a shambles. It has no compatability with WMP and accordingly my favourite music or playlists are never transferred in their entirity to iTunes.
WMP does not recognize the iPod Nano as a device so it is impossible to drag and drop to the device.
Today for example I recharged the iPod....took very very long time....and Synced music and photos to the device.
I was unable to 'add' more music or photos...I had to delete the entire library of music and all photo albums and then replace with new ones!!Why??
It took several hours to achieve this.
Very slow device. Stupid system of downloading.
Maybe the 3rd generation is a more complete and user friendly device...not so if it is dependent on iTunes!!
Would I buy one....certainly not...I give it Poor Rating.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
Regards.

ipod touch 32gb 2nd gen.

broke after 3 weeks, screen stays almost blank. very upset, what a waste of money.
also the ipod is worse than most mp3 players for the amount of tags required for albums to play as albums as whole albums, i also have a creative 16gb which is a pleasure to use compared to the ipod and is far less fussy.
i did like the touch screen useabitiy.
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A FASHIONABLE IPOD, PAY FOR THE NAME, THE PRODUCT IS LAME.

if an mp3 player came out without the need for tags which worked on file name only and used drag n drop software it would be brilliant.

Apple Ipod Touch

Review for: Apple iPod touch 2nd Generation Black (8 GB)

Bought one of these second hand. I have seen them in action before and was very impressed. The one I bought had a problem with the docking socket which was obviously faulty but described as good. To repair this part of the ipod is £54 or thereabouts, making it almost the price of a new one. Buyer beware!!!!!It still does not work correctly and does not charge unless you wiggle the connector (yes I did buy a new charger and usb lead) Again, be careful with these things.

Over advertised and really a poor product for true music lovers

No, I wouldn't recommend this product.

The iPod touch is a nice looking product and packed with features, but that's as far as it goes. The sound quality is poor and doesn't compare to a lot of other players, the battery life is not that great, the fact that it is locked to iTunes is appalling. Basically this is just an over advertised product and is bought just because someone else has one, perfect example of style over substance.

poor. i´m experiency tecnician in ipod
. Una vez que hayas finalizado la configuración, iTunes se abrirá. A continuación pueden ocurrir dos cosas:

El iPod empezará a llenarse con música de la biblioteca de iTunes (si has configurado iTunes para que actualice el iPod automáticamente)

o bien

Se te permitirá elegir qué música, vídeos*, audiolibros y podcasts deseas añadir si has escogido gestionar automáticamente los contenidos de tu iPod.

Para agregar contenido manualmente, arrastra cualquier archivo desde la biblioteca o lista de reproducción de iTunes hasta el icono del iPod de la lista Fuente de iTunes. Si estás utilizando iTunes por primera vez, primero deberás agregar música a iTunes, por ejemplo, canciones desde tus propios CD o música que ya esté en el disco duro.

Cómo usar tu iPod como unidad de disco* para almacenar música y otros archivos.
Nota: la sincronización de música con el iPod se realiza en un solo sentido. No puedes copiar música desde un iPod a un ordenador a menos que primero actives el iPod como un disco duro y, a continuación, copies archivos de música en su volumen de disco.
