 Great, would be 5 if apple pulled there finger out!

| | See all Blank2k's reviews (11)

Great bit of a kit, it simply works the way its ment to, touch screen seems to know what button u were about to press no matter how big ur fingers seem to be.

But theres a couple of problems.

#1 iPhone & iTouch dont support 64bit Windows systems (XP or Vista 64bit versions)... Itunes simply doesnt work with the iphone or itouch on 64bit, and theres no other programs that will comunicate or transfer music to the devices no matter what u try (unless u install a 32bit OS[XP/Vista]) .... im just waiting for apple to do an update on itunes to make the thing work! (its been months now! :() im also fully aware itunes works with ipod nano etc on 64bit, but it currently wont with iphone or itouch, trust me.

#2 lack of quick-volume control, on past ipods u could easily reach into ur pocket & turn up/down the volume just by touch without seeing what ur touching etc, ipod touch will need u to get the device out of ur pocket & press 3 buttons before u can adjust volume, which i beleive Apple could also easily fix by a simple

"Click 3 times on the home button for a Volume Only" on screen which u could sweep ur finger up/down to change volume.

or a turn off display, but keep the touch system live so when u make a rotation motion on the display the volume will change.

Anyway, simple version:
Great device, Apple are letting it down by not support 64bit Windows OS's at the mo. (But your 32bit windows will work perfectly well.)

 Excellent, very very good

This is an incredible piece of technology. Its great. Apple have hit big with this. I love the touch pad, its amazing how sensitve the screen actually is. The screen is great for watching movies on, you have the choice of widescreen or full screen, sound is clear and the picture is great. I highly reccommend anyone to get this.

I'll keep this breif. This device is beautiful. I've had mine for a few months now, even after that amount of time, i still get a wow factor when i turn it on.

audio quality = excellent
video quality = excellent

I was worried that the screen and the quality would be too low to watch movies on with comfort. I need not worry. The display is that good you forget your watching it on such a small screen!

If your looking to go beyond what the device offers, reserach jail breaking. It voids your warrenty, but there are hundreds if not thousends of extra applications out there now.

Also Apple are offering the "App Store" now, which has simmerlar effects of jailbreak without voiding your warrenty. Some apps are not free however through the app store.

I give the device 9/10

My only gripe is the battery. If your playing music, it lasts ages as with video. However, web browsing is another story. Espically downloading large amounts of data.

I highly reccomend this item.

 iPod Touch - Get it now!

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

For some years now, I've had a fifth generation 60Gb iPod Video, and I've been very pleased with it for many reasons - having your entire CD collection in one tiny, good looking box is fairly priceless anyway - but added to that I would say that the iPod, whilst certainly not an exotic piece of high-end hi-fi equipment, sounds astonishingly good for a portable audio player. Use it with a pair of decent headphones, Sennheisers being a personal favourite, and you won't believe what you hear. Another great reason for owning one is that so many other manufacturers have jumped on the iPod bandwagon. In my car, for instance, I have an interface box which sits between my car's CD player and the iPod - the ipod is then placed out of sight, and is controlled by the head unit. Lately, quite a few hi-fi manufacturers have also begun to recognise the iPod as a serious piece of equipment, and have started to make some fantastically good amplifier / speaker combinations - TL Audio's Fatman iTube, for instance, which uses vacuum tubes instead of transistors for amplification. The video capability of the iPod, far from being a poorly conceived add-on (we're talking about Apple here, who seem to have an unrivalled ability to conceive and design something that actually does what it says it can do, without endless bug-fixes and reliability problems) works like a dream. So, how could this be better? Take all of the above, make it smaller, add the most gorgeous user interface ever invented, then add wi-fi and the ability to stream video from your wireless router, increase the battery life, and make it sound even better. Even if you never actually turn the thing on, this is one of the most beautiful pieces of equipment ever made; the very definition of 'tactile'. A fairly mandatory buy with the touch is the docking station with video connector. I've been using mine to stream BBC iPlayer programmes through my home system - again, you won't believe what you're seeing. Sure, it's not high definition, but it's better than VHS video quality, definitely more than watchable. You also see it full screen on either the player or your TV, not the usual window if you're streaming it on a PC. The fact that all this is coming from something which isn't too much bigger than a credit card will never cease to amaze. Then there's the sound quality. I won't be getting rid of my older iPod which has everything I own encoded at a lesser bitrate, and what I've done with my iPod touch is to encode about 100 of the albums I play most at lossless quality. (This is on a 32Gb iPod.) Concerning MP3 and other encoding systems there is always a trade-off between file size and sound quality, and you lose more storage space doing it like this - but for doing so you are rewarded with a huge increase in sound quality, especially when you're playing it through a decent hi-fi system - at the risk of labouring a point, you won't believe what you're hearing. In case you haven't worked this out, I'm completely hooked, which I'm very surprised to say because about twenty years ago I sold staggeringly expensive hi-fi equipment and would never even have dreamed of something like this even slightly entertaining me. It's like the toy you always imagined as a kid, the one that could never really exist except in science fiction, but even better - with a constant ability to surprise at what it can do, and draw admiring looks from other people who then curse you for having 'had to' go and get one. Can't recommend it enough - go and get one, the bigger the better!

 Best handheld gadget i own

| | See all quinsboy's reviews (2)

I cannot understand why people would choose not to rate this 5 stars. I baught this because the iphone, due for release is pretty much this product with an overpriced tariffed phone. It makes much more sense to me to get this amazing gadget and then get a seperate phone which has half the bill for it.

The touch screen is amazing, and is very easy to use is and makes easy viewing of websites and photos. The music library is laid out awesomely and i fail to see how it could be better. The battery just keeps on going, 20 hrs of playback of music. Very light and very slim.

The perfect product.
