"What can I say? It's an iPod!"4.0 starson by jrhurren
Pros: Amazing interface, huge storage volume, wonderful screen
Cons: iTunes is a bulky and slow program, battery life poor when used for video
Summary: Well, this is an iPod so you probably have hear it all before but here's my 2 cents.
The greatest thing about the iPod is the interface. It makes it so easy to quickly find what you're looking for and also easy to make adjustments on the fly (ie, volume, eq, etc). Also, the amount of storage is huge, so much so that my 30 gb is larger than the entire hard drive on my now 5 year old laptop. That's pretty incredible, especially considering the sizes of the new ipods now out.
The only real complaints I have with this unit is the iTunes software and the battery life. iTunes automatically preloads part of the program into memory when your computer starts so it won't seem so slow when you actually open it. In addition to that, it consumes a lot of system resources so that whenever it is open all my other programs bog down. I have not experienced this with any other program to date.
Also, when watching video the battery life is very short.
So that's it. I definitely would recommend this product to anyone. That being said, definitely do your homework because there is a lot of good competition in this market.
