4.5 Its as good as they say! ITFC10 | 29/03/2008 | See all ITFC10's reviews (22) I've just reluctantly bought one of these after my old 60gb Toshiba Gigabeat finally gave up the ghost, i was looking round for another player with a large capacity hard drive and the ipod was the only one i could find having not originally been impressed with the ipods in the past but i have to say ive been very surprised as to how good this player actually is! (i know millions of people cant be wrong but its purely a matter of taste, sorry!)Having plugged it into my usb port it registers about 148gb, you expect to loose a bit of any hard drive space once it has been factory formatted, once you get online and download the latest itunes its a piece of cake to sinc up (itunes does take a fair bit of your pc resources up mind, even with 2gb of ram installed!) and i transferred about 85gb of music in about 4-5hrs, my gigabeat you had to leave on almost all day! Anything thats in wma format itunes automatically converts to mp3 (porobably where it hogs the recources!) As with all ipods searching for tracks is a sinch especially with the new search function. It really is top notch mp3 player.So having to 'bite the bullet' and buy an ipod, i can say im glad i did! Hope this helps.
