Pros: shape,memory,color screen, photo viewer, video player, width
Cons: cannot play every video file, scratchers easily, battery life is shot when viewing photos
Summary: This is my first time owning something from Apple. I bought it yesterday at the Apple Store on Bay Street, Emeryville. When I brought it home, i uploaded some of my songs, but my wma songs had to be converted, which took a long time. And then when i tried to drag my video files into itunes, it did not work because it wasn't in the right format. So i checked on the apple website and found a quicktime Ipod Video guide, and it said that my files could have been converted through quicktime. I downloaded quicktime and tried to convert them, however that feature was avaible on Quicktime PRO which costs 19.99$. So i upgraded it, and converted one of my 30mb files, it took an 1hour and 30 minutes. When it was done, i uploaded it to my Ipod, and there was no sound,whatsoever. So I ended up buying the same exact video file on Apple.com for 1.99$
Video-not a fun feature.
Afterwards, i spent an hour or so listening to my ipod and was scroling through my photos which shot the battery life down 50%. The Ipod gets hot sometimes and it scracthes soo easily.
**Sugestion: Think about it. not for a few days, but for a few months before buying it for yourself, or as a gift.**
