5 Stars FANTASTIC
I’d owned a Creative mp3 player for a VERY long time and needed an upgrade. This DEFINITELY fit the bill. Now, instead of storing a few albums worth of songs, I can have my entire music library, videos, podcasts and photos all on one machine…I can’t believe that I lived in the dark ages for so long. The train rides in New York City will never be the same again (in the good way)!
5 Stars Movies are GREAT on this
I now have 15 movies on my Classic, from animal house to Eric Clapton’s Guitar Festival. They are easy to load and great to watch when flying. My wrist gets tired holding it during long movies, as I do not have a stand (apple should make one). The music is great too! Time to upgrade that old unit as this one still has the space to hold your songs and now movies at a much more reasonable price than the Itouch.
5 Stars iPod Video is a great buy
I had been hesitant to buy a new iPod because of the high price tag for any of them, but I finally decided to spend the money and upgrade from my old iPod mini, which the battery was starting to becom bad on. I first looked at the 8gb Nano, but decided to spend $50 more and get 72gb more space, and the larger screen. Let me tell you, this device will change you life. The video and picture quality is unbelievable, and the music quality is also tremendous. For someone like me who travels a lot, this is a great product to own.
5 Stars Buy with confidence

1 Star iPod
When I went to the post office to pick up the package, there was nothing in the box. I had waited three weeks for it. Thankfully, I got my money back but then I had to go somewhere else to buy it. I originally wanted to buy it from Amazon because it was $50 cheaper. I’ll never do it again.
