 Excellent mp3 player

| | See all pauljanaway's reviews (9)

This is my first ever mp3 player and i have to say it is great. I have tried other mp3 players, such as my friends ones. But i have found this one to be easier to use, its more stylish and has great sound quality.

This ipod has 30gb of space, this is more than enough even for people with tons of music. Why bother dragging 100s of cds around with you when you can just store them on a tony gadget such as this.

You can also store and view videos and images. The quality of the pictures and video is pretty good. :)

Overall this is a great product and worth getting.

 Image is everything...

I recently purchased the 30Gb Video Ipod (white) and couldn't be happier with my purchase. The last Ipod I had was the Mini, which lasted for 13 months before suffering the famous Ipod curse and refusing to charge! Why did I then go and buy a new one?? Am I mad?? Possibly! The reason people buy the Ipod isn't because it is the most reliable or because it has the most functions...but because it is simple, fun, stylish and very very cool. The moment you see the packaging you start to realise why Apple are the market leaders. The scroll wheel is easy to use and makes looking through your music collection easy. For most people 30Gb is plenty - I would recommend that you download Itunes and upload most of your music prior to making any decisions so that you can monitor your Gb requirements.

Whilst I have yet to see if the curse strikes again, I would recommend the Ipod Video to anyone; young or old. 5/5.

 Not bad at all!!!

I like this thing. I ordered one off here last week and I'm very happy with it.
The battery however is a bit of a disappointment as it lasts nowhere near 14 hours. I know what you're thinking - 'everyone knows that and it just depends on the settings you have it on such as tirning the backlight off' - but I have had seven Ipod's now so I think I know what I'm talking about. NO I'm not rolling in dough but I used to have an Ipod Nano which I ended up selling because it kept breaking and I had to be shipped replacements all the time.
I still think this is a great little toy and is good fun to have. Although I haven't gotten round to ripping any DVDs onto it yet, I have a friend who has and he has the entire first season of Lost on it and the video quality seems to be excellent from what I've seen. It isn't the kind of thing I'd like to watch movies on but some good stand-up acts and daft cartoons should suffice.
Anyway... try not to be put off by my less than perfect rating but I am just rather critical of Ipod's after having had so much bother with them in the past.
What are you waiting for then??? Just click buy... :D

i purchased an Ipod Video after my mate bought one, they are amazing, a great loud MP3 PLAYER and the quality of the video is beyond realistic, it's not pixelated at all, and for this price it is a great buy.
