When I was first looking to buy an iPod, I was looking for an iPod touch, or the 3rd generation iPod nano. I realized after research that the iPod touch was overpriced, and the iPod nano did not have all the features I needed. And then I found the 80 gig iPod classic. They made similar iPods that hold only 30 gigs, but now they only make the 80 or 160 gig iPods.

Features:

There is not a difference between the 80 gig iPod and the 160 gig iPod (other than the amount of space ). It is available in black or silver and I prefer the silver color. The 80 gig iPod can hold 25,000 photos, 20,000 songs, or 100 hours of video space on your iPod. Also, it has around 30 hours of battery power. This iPod is great for trips because of the size of the screen, which is bigger than most iPods. Watch your favorite music videos, television shows, and movies on a larger screen than the 3rd generation nano. You can watch your favorite movies with the new Digital Copy that comes with some DVDs. This feature allows you to download the movie from a PC or MAC right onto the iPod for free. If you have seen the old 30 gig white iPod design, the new 80 gig silver one is much different, with its new metal enclosure. This iPod also features a note section, where you can put reminders, or other information you need to remember. Most people who are gamers use the Notes section for cheat codes on games. Speaking of games, iTunes has games that you can buy for your iPod. Games such as Packman, Uno, Sims bowling, Sims DJ, Monopoly and many more are available! This iPod also comes with a few games like iQuiz, Klondike, and Vortex. IQuiz is the most popular of the 3. In iQuiz, you can play Music Quiz 2, a game that takes all of your songs and quizzes you on them. It also has games that quiz you on movies, music, and TV shows. The iPod also has Podcasts which are short videos. You can get 100 free Podcasts on iTunes. All of the videos are from “The Best of Youtube.” Most people have trouble watching iPod videos on their television. There is only one way to watch the videos or pictures on your TV, and that is by using an Apple certified cable which is somewhere around 50 dollars. Make sure you don’t get the cable that is just for sound, because you will be very disappointed. This is a very long cable, with red, white and yellow A/V connectors, a plug for AC power, and a USB connector all in one. Once you plug this in, go to video settings and change the TV out to “on.” Also, once in a blue moon your iPod classic may freeze up. Don’t freak out! Just hold down the menu and the center button until it restarts.

Performance: An excellent hard drive for lots of space. Like all the other iPods, this comes with headphones that I cannot stand! The sound quality on the headphones is not good, and they hurt my ear, so I suggest that you get new and better headphones from a store that sells electronics (preferably Sony headphones with surround sound). This iPod also has an excellent fast moving scroll wheel, clear video picture, quick loading on games, and the iPod never stops or freezes during any videos.

Conclusion:
To wrap up everything about the iPod classic generation 6, it is one of the best iPods available with very few problems, and I highly recommend buying this video classic iPod. If you had troubles with iPods in the past, you will not have to worry about problems with this one.
