  • Apple's iPod 60GB, With Video! Who Says, "An Old Dog Can't learn New Tricks?"

    Mar 3, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great looking unit with unlimited possibilities including lots of audio and video space.
    Cons: I still have to learn how to access many of those possibilities.

    Summary: I recently won the iPod 60GB on Epinions. Yes, very cool. Besides making a few cents for writing reviews, that do add up in time, there's also the opportunity to win cool prizes. When I was notified of my win I quickly became the closest "friend" of ... read more

  • Amazing Little Ipod For The Price!

    Jun 18, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice Video Quality and Sound
    Cons: Freezes occasionally

    Summary: I used to have an Ipod Nano, but I was getting tired of being forced to take songs off in order to add new songs, so I bought an Ipod Video. I absolutely love it. The video quality is great. Don't get me wrong, it's not high definition or anything, but I ... read more

  • IPod: Simply The Best

    Dec 31, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: ease of downloading songs from iTunes, fantastic video quality, long battery life, easy to use
    Cons: PRICE, PRICE, PRICE, and screen slightly too small for watching videos comfortably

    Summary: My wife surprised me with an iPod this Christmas. I had been pricing some cheaper MP3 players over the past few months because I wanted something to listen to on my hour or so commute to work. I had an old generic MP3 player that held a total of 16 ... read more

  • The Gold standard of MP3 players

    Nov 13, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Standardization with other iPods with iTunes; ease of navigation of many songs by different categories
    Cons: The monopoly on video content and cost of accessories makes me feel like a chump.

    Summary: I bought this unit to replace a 24-month old 2nd generation 40GB unit (which broke), as it had quickly become an indispensable part of my life. This iPod is slightly wider and taller than my 2nd generation iPod, but thinner (about the same thickness ... read more

  • Cheaper direct from Apple

    Oct 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great display, cheaper from Apple refurb, good battery life, video resolution good on small screens
    Cons: $$, video degrades as screen size increases, gaming eats the battery, not enough games

    Summary: I previously owned two iPods, an old 15GB and a mini. Both were starting to annoy me in one way or another. My Sony cell phone plays video, but only has about 200MB of space for songs and clips. My mini had a nicer display, but the battery was on the ... read more

  • ENTERTAINMENT ON THE GO

    Sep 26, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fits easily in the pocket. Great Design/looks. Music, Video's Photos and more on the go.
    Cons: Prone to scratches. No Live Radio. Video Campatibilty Limitations.

    Summary: I say the Apple iPod is a hard drive on the go that plays music, video and much more. iPod lets you keep a grip on all things in your palm. The all famous “Click Wheel” gives you access to your entire music, photo and video library from one thumb ... read more

  • A slow start, but getting better

    Sep 25, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Massive storage, ease-of-use
    Cons: Some initial glitches

    Summary: As an owner of the previous version of the iPod (iPod Photo), I was very much looking forward to getting the iPod Video. My wife had started showing interest in my iPod Photo and since she didn't want the video capabilities, we decided to get the new ... read more

  • I wish I'd known before I bought!

    Sep 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: You can fit all your stuff and more on this device
    Cons: Can't play copy protected WMA files which your library perhaps uses.

    Summary: COST I got this IPOD for my birthday, but as you all know when you get older, costs like this are always visible at some point. So I know that my wife paid $399 for the IPOD and a audio/video adapter. This seems to be about the going rate for ... read more

  • iPod from an audiophile’s perspective

    Jul 29, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well built, reliable, iTunes, & cleanest sounding player
    Cons: Price but you get what you pay for, EQ, some low level hiss

    Summary: Welcome to the revolution my friends; the digital media revolution. The 5th generation of Apple’s iPod is quite solid and there really is no comparison to any other model out there in the market today. I’m an audio professional so you will get all the ... read more

    Pros: sleek look, capacity,battery life
    Cons: no synchronization during transfer; everything is add on

    Summary: Update 11/16/2006 Now I have owned this puppy for quite some time. It has kind of grown on me but I would not change my opinion about it. Here are a few more points to ponder... (1) the itunes software has converted my existing mp3 songs into aac. ... read more

    Pros: It's Apple black! Easy to use, good quality video for the size of screen...
    Cons: Poor battery life if you watch videos. Scratches easily.

    Summary: Ok.. here are my two cents. I must admit, I was (and still am) a little nervous about the money I spent on this thing. There's so much technology packed into such a small box, somethin's bound to go wrong sometime... I have heard (and read) about ... read more

    Pros: great screen, battery life, good sound
    Cons: ITUNES, scratches easily, no included power, no accessories, too "controling"

    Summary: Get ready for a long one… I bought this ipod thinking it would be the greatest thing ever... play video, pictures, and best of all, ALL of my music! It does all of these functions fairly well, and the battery life is very good (for music; for videos, ... read more

  • Good choice if you need extra large capacity

    Apr 26, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: capacity, portability, availability of accessories, usb-charging
    Cons: iTunes, iTunes, iTunes, price, and did I mention iTunes?

    Summary: I avoided buying an iPod for years, instead opting for archos players (first the old 20gb jukebox, then the 20gb gmini 402). These players served their purpose quite well, but my collection has outgrown the 20gb capacity & I wanted the largest capacity ... read more

    Pros: AN incredible song collection at your fingertips
    Cons: Scrolling to find songs. Itunes can be difficult. Resetting.

    Summary: I bought my Ipod during Christmas time , I was fortunate enough to get the exact one I wanted a black 60GB, at half the price. ( I got really lucky on Ebay). WHen I got it home I was in love. It is a girl's best friend. It took a long time to get ALL my ... read more

  • WOW--that about sums it up

    Feb 22, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Big wow factor--great video, ipod ease
    Cons: lack of video controls, top inputs changed

    Summary: Gasp--this is my fourth ipod; my 'old' 4th generation was, and still is, running just fine, but who could resist the call of this beauty. When this product was first introduced, I thought, "Now that's a silly idea--who would want to watch video on a 2.5 ... read more

  • There are better video players

    Feb 9, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: small size; good battery life; excellent fit and finish
    Cons: no DivX support; small screen; poor headphone driver; accessories not included

    Summary: I had an Archos AV480 pocket video player for over a year. I bought it to play MP3s, but also used it for playing DivX AVI video files (pretty much the standard online movie format). The 80 GB hard drive in the Archos broke -- AGAIN -- and now it's out ... read more

    Cons: Expensive, Only Plays mp4 video, Fragile, Apple is no help

    Summary: Bear with me, I have a background story (scroll down 1 paragraph to get to the bottom line). Every year, there is always one gift I want in particular. Christmas 2005, more than anything, I wanted a Video iPod and I was thrilled when I got it. At first, ... read more

    Pros: Looks cool, works perfectly, lots of options, huge capacity...
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: Once upon a time, I had a lovely Creative Labs Zen Xtra with a massive (at least at the time) 30GB storage space. That was some 2 years ago. A few months ago, I went to turn it on after charging it and, alas, it would not. There is probably only an ... read more
