Pros High capacity for storage of music, photos, and videos.
Cons Sort options make finding files clumsy and difficult. Small screen size not good for viewing pictures or videos.
Summary The high capacity of this device should make it a great product for those with large libraries. Unfortunately, the small screen is less than ideal for viewing videos or pictures and the sort options make it nearly unusable for large audio libraries. When sorting music by ?Artist? the iPod produces an almost incomprehensible list with multiple entries for artists, not in alphabetical order, and including every artist & combination of artists from every album. While the iTunes software includes tag fields for ?Sort Artist? and ?Sort Album Artist? the iPod doesn?t support these options. Apple has really missed the mark with this device. I recommend checking out the Zune for those in need of large capacity devices.
Pros - capacity
- battery life
- design and size : as thin as the 120gb
Cons - The screen is still plastic hence I purchased a case immediately after before getting the ipod.
- Sound not as sharp as my Sony 16GB but very respectable quality.
- Only update on product is the size from 120GB to 160GB Apple could be more generous
Summary I have tested the product over the last 2 days and thinks this is a great MP3 I used to own the previous 160gb classic but got rid of it due to the size and slowness of the interface and lack of Genius feature. Apple has delivered a nice update to the classic, it may not be a touch but it does the job very well for those who just want to enjoy the music and don't need the gaming capability and other cool features of the ipod touch.
Pros - Battery Life
- Plays Music
Cons - Falsely Advertised Greatly
- 148.6 GB of free space
- Advertising claims that space is "more than enough room for a lifetime's worth or entertainment" 50 or 100 days is not a lifetime, not to mention that 148.6 gigs isn't enough for many such as me
Summary Anyone who reviews this and claims that there is 160 GB of space for you to upload media is not telling the truth. It has 148.6 GB of space for you to fill, not 160 GB. Also falsely advertized, according to the official Apple website this ipod can carry "up to 40,000 songs." This is ONLY the case if all your music files are at a 128 bit-rate (itunes m4a files are at 256, Amazon at 320 or VBR). You would have to go out of your way to illegally download crap-quality music consistently to store anywhere near up to 40,000 songs.
