"Nice a/v PDA, but falls short w/ Apple lossless format."2.0 starson by mandnw
Pros: Elegantly simple and stylish w/ functionality to match in what's basically a software expandable multimedia PDA that's very much in line w/ Apple's approach to the Mac and iPod line of products.
Cons: 1. Very annoying frequent random audio dropouts when playing Apple's lossless format.
2. Price vs storage: this would be more forgiveable if issue #1 did not exist.
Summary: Very nice multimedia PDA overall, but very disappointed to find that the audio frequently randomly drops out when playing back Apple's own lossless format, which was the main reason for me to even get the 32GB version. Would've probably just passed on it (at least until the problem was resolved), if I had known beforehand. I still have my old 4G iPod classic 60GB that played Apple lossless format just fine. Hope Apple will fix this problem soon. But until then, this issue remains a serious flaw for anyone who wants highest quality audio playback (and is the main reason why I gave it just 2 stars instead of say 4.5 stars).
