  The Best Buy Ever...

| | See all Vipershot's reviews (18)

This is an excellent piece of kit, all your music, videos and pictures all in one place! I mostly use this for music on the go, It is the best IPOD by far, you could always get the IPOD with more Memory but I would advise only do so if you want to add lots of movies to it because there is no need for any more memory than this! if you use the IPOD just for music!! I have a total of roughly 8'000 tracks , put it on random, set up in the car, can't go wrong! Never going to buy a CD again!!

  buy this one

This Ipod is a lot better that its predeccessors in every way and you be able to see that just by looking at how much better it looks, and the new features is has on the Apple website. Why is this better than the Touch?
BECAUSE This has an 80gb memory, the touch has a maximum of 16gb. That is 20 hours video or 3500 songs. What is the point in having such a large screen if you could only put 13 movies that are 1 and a half hours long onto it . ( and most new movies are longer than that) Thats with no music on it, who buys an ipod and doesnt put any music, no one! The classic holds 20 thousand songs and 100 hours of video. When listening to music on the ipod classic you will be able to do so for 30 hours until the thing runs out of battery, you will be able to watch video for 7 and a half hours. If you buy the touch your battery will last 20 hours listening to music and 4 and a half watching video. I know i Havnt told you alot about the ipod itself, but thats not what im trying to do, im trying to help you decide between this and the ipod touch, this was a problem for me aswell. I will say this if, you dont want a lot of memory and dont listen to a lot of music and just want the touch for its wow factor,( it is quite impressive, especially the way you can flick through album art with your finger)and how cool you will look using one then buy the touch but if you want alot of music and plenty of space for videos without to kepp deleting stuff from your itunes then get the iPod classic, i did and i have never regretted that decision!

  Wow.....my favourite purchase to date.

I wanted to upgrade my existing Nano as it was always full and I was a bit fed up of juggling music. I decided to go for the 80GB classic as I knew it would have the storage I needed. It is definately the best thing I have ever bought.
The screen clarity and colour flow is fabulous, although iTunes doesn't always get all the artwork. Nevertheless, it reminds me of the pleasures of flicking through albums.
The music quiz is great fun and addictive, but the naff background music when it isn't playing your music seems difficult to get rid of.
I wasn't sure how easy it would be to transfer my existing music to a new iPod, but it could not have been any simpler.......just plug into the USB and let it sync. However......as I discovered, the new iPod needs to be FULLY charged before the PC and iTunes will recognise it. I was starting to think it was faulty in my haste to play with it as soon as possible!
If you are thinking of replacing an existing iPod with the 80, I cannot recommend this enough. I absolutely love mine!!!

  The One

| | See all SuperLuke's reviews (3)

The iPod Classic is my first iPod and its amazing. I had other mp3 players that I was going to get instead but I looked at the specifications and the iPod Classic just had the best. The battery life was good and the hard-drive space of 80GB is just astonishing.

I also like the way that the iPod was all syncronised with iTunes and that saved me loads of time adding my songs to it.

The Video quality is excellent as well, the screen size is good but I only watch videos while im travelling it's no good whilst walking.

The main reason why I chose this was because I also use it for college as need the space and the hard-drive space did me wonders with space to use for more songs and videos etc.

I actually got the iPod in black which I thought looked more snazzy than the silver. Either way the iPod is a must have for me and it's well worth the money.

  Wow

I needed a new MP3 player and I was going to buy something other than an iPod because there were some other MP3 players out there that have quite a few more features, but then I thought iPods can't be that bad if they're the top selling music player in the world! So after worrying if I'd made the right choice it arrived. I was amazed, it was so smart, clean, nice. Infact it has made me love Apple, and now I want a Mac simply because I have seen what Apple can do with an iPod so what must the computers be like....?

  Great Value

My first Ipod and I am glad i chose to turn to Apple. The value for money is unbelievable. I have over 2000 songs on mine, 3 seasons of Lost and 8 movies and there is still over 50GB of memory left! With the price at £150 that is less than £2 per GB. Buy it now!

This is why iPod is THE name in MP3 players.

About 4 years ago I bought an iPod mini (which was good) but the battery wasn't keeping a charge so I upgraded to this beauty.

This has a huge 80GB hard drive, crystal clear colour screen for watching videos or veiwing your pictures, a new cover flow system so you can browse through your music collection easily and a few ok games.

When I was choosing my new iPod it was a toss up between this and the iPod touch but the size of the hard drive an battery life swayed me to this one and I have been delighted with it

  The Best Ipod Ever!!!!

| | See all RuthlessWarlord's reviews (2)

The title says it all, nice sleek design, slimmer than the previous model, very easy to use thanks to the click wheel, i have filled it up with over 30gb worth of music videos and photos and still have loads of space, if your going to carry a load of music i would highly reccomend this over the touch!

  Stunning!

| | See all 28buzby79's reviews (9)

This ipod is amazing. I was stuck deciding whether to get this or the ipod touch. I was finally sold upon this one for the reasons that it has an 80gb hard drive which is ample space to fit a mixture of songs, videos etc. It has excellent features like the new cover flow system so you can browse your music collection with ease, great games (and more which are available from the itunes store!) and a search function to find the exact song you are after! The general layout of the menu itself is great as it is now split screen and on the right hand side of the screen you can see your album covers, photos or whatever is highlighted scrolling across the screen. As much as I like the ipod touch and it is an amazing piece of equipment, I do feel that it does not come with a big enough hard drive and is more about style. I would highly recommened this 80gb classic to anyone especially people who know they are going to fill it as there is alot of space to fill!!
