  • Display (Display)

    The display eases the use of the player, even if the device is only used for listening to music. You can, for example, easily browse through songs and artists, adjust the settings, or, if supported by the player, watch images and videos.

  • Display size (Display size)

    The diagonal of the display in inches.

  • Resolution (Display resolution (nnn x nnn))

    Resolution refers to the amount of horizontal and vertical pixels the device uses to generate the image on screen, i.e. the physical number of columns and rows of pixels creating the display. The resolution is given as horizontal pixels x vertical pixels ("width x height").

  • PC connection (Computer connection)

    The player is usually connected to a computer via an USB or FireWire-cable. Quite often, however, the player end of the cable requires a special connector designed by the manufacturer.

  • Storage medium (Storage medium type)

    MP3 Players can use either flash memory or hard disk drive (HDD) to store the MP3 music files. Flash memory is a non-mechanical solid state technology, and therefore it is lighter and more power efficient than HDD. Flash is also more resilient to such hazards as dropping or fragmentation. On the other hand, HDD offers more storage capacity than flash memory: flash-based players only offer storage capacity up to 32 gigabytes (GB), while HDD players reach up to around 250-300 GB.

  • MP3 (MP3 playbck support)

    Usually all digital music players are capable of playing MP3 files. However, the playback of various forms of DRM protected files is often limited to a number of players. The same applies to more special file formats, such as FLAC, Ogg vorbis, AAC and WMA.

  • Headphone jack (Headphone jack type)

    The headphone jack most commonly used is 3.5 mm in diameter. Sometimes a smaller 2.5 mm jack is also used, which saves space. The downside is that most headphones are equipped with a 3.5 mm plug and require an adapter to fit into the 2.5 mm jack. Some manufacturers also use their own proprietary jacks.

  • WiFi / WLAN (Integrated WiFi / WLAN)

    Some modern players have the ability to transfer data through Wireless LAN (WiFi) connection. However, the connection is seldom used for data synchronization, but rather to provide access to the Internet or proprietary services.

  • Memory card slot (Memory card slot)

    Some MP3 players have a slot for external memory card, which can be used to connect memory cards containing music for playback.

I've gone through two of these, the headphone jack dies after less than a year of constant use. This was also an issue with the 5G, which I had to have replaced on many occasions.

I hate having to put up with the Genius Bar, but had to make multiple trips just to get use out of the thing.

iTunes is a nice bit of software, stable, easy to use, but the Music Store feature is bull. I'm not paying anywhere near the price of a CD for a bunch of MP3's ripped at 256KBPS.

On the plus side, the iPod can hold a whole bunch of crap-quality MP3's, and a fair amount of proper rips.
I also liked the interface, fairly easy to navigate, nice organization ability.

This iPod is AWESOME. I can watch movies, listen to music, browse photos and it's so easy to use aswell. I give it a 12/10, it's perfect for anyone. But of course I didn't pay for it myself but instead got it for free from but it's still a good item nevertheless.

I had the option of going with the Classic or the Touch, and I went with the iPod Classic.

Because the price of the Touch, I thought it might not really be worth it because I listen to a lot of musics. I download my music by albums, so the Touch's hard drive would not be very practical.

The Classic I have is very good. I've only had one problem, and the problem wasn't even anyone else's fault but mine. I was running a lot with it, and I guess I shook something inside, so it wouldn't turn on. But all I had to do was reset it.

I like the look of the iPod too. I don't know much about the smudges and stuff that I hear about all the time on other reviews, but I just bought the ZAGG Invisible Shield (Full Body) and I put it in a Marware Sportsgrip so it won't break when I drop it.

The music quality in the iPod Classic is good, and the cover flow feature is impressive. This product is just a must-have if you really want to be able to listen to a lot of music and keep it on your MP3 Player as well.
