5 out of 5 eggsI-Pod

Pros: The pros explain themselves.. It's an Ipod, all that is needed to know is that the storage space is unbelievable on this thing.

Cons: The Software... It uses a very simple language that if you know what you are doing can completely delete everything and end up having a mini-computer. Apple needs drastically to fix this problem in the next couple years. As of right now i'm selling these with Windows Xp and a personal mouse that goes into the charger slot. Works well and i make a ton of profit off of it.

Other Thoughts: When people ask you why you bought the 120gig, just say its my personal FlashDrive Music player. (Have WoW and Crysis on this)

4 out of 5 eggsIt's an I-Pod

Pros: It's and I-Pod so if you've never had're the only one...get one. As far as personal music players go, Apple has the best user interface in my opinion. It's easy to navigate to where you want to go, listen while choosing other songs, large enough screen, good size and weight, and above all the storage space. You can go for the touch if you want Wi-Fi or if you just wanna be that guy and try and look cool but if you have 60 gigs of music like I do this is the right choice b/c i have plenty of room for that and movies and anything else i feel like messing with. At least until Apple quits acting like they cant put that much room on the touch.

Cons: I Tunes...!!! But you can easily get around these problems...

Pros: Works great. Holds a ton of songs and has an awesome sound quality. Syncing with a computer is also pretty idiot proof ;)

5 out of 5 eggsmy new iPod

Pros: -a VERY large amount of memory in it
-bright backlight
-small size and light weight
-excellent sound (especially if you have good headphones)
-a great improvement in battery life from older gen iPods
-large screen with good resolution (which makes watching movies a pleasure instead of having to wonder half the time on what you are seeing)
-the Album Flow option
-a better touch wheel
-decently priced (once it went down, lol)

Cons: -the screen and the back scratches very easily, so it's a good idea to buy a case as early as possible
-the headphones that come with it are useable, but are really not that good
-although the battery life is decent and has improved from the older versions, the battery still dies very quickly if you use the backlight a lot

Other Thoughts: This has been my second iPod. I don't regret in the least spending the $250 for this to upgrade from my 2nd gen nano. I've owned it for almost a month now, and I haven't regretted getting this iPod even once. I just kinda wish that it came with a wall charger, since I don't always have access to a USB port, but we can't have it all now, can we?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: What can I say? I love this iPod. Now I can hold all my music, movies, and TV shows. I like the new look of the menus. It's definitely more aesthetic.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I bought this one to replace my 60GB iPod that I paid $400 for 4 years ago. I only had to reset the old one a couple times and I hope this one is even less.

4 out of 5 eggsGood as expected? (not quite)

Pros: Works as advertised, plugs straight into my Sync system in my Mariner (main reason I bought it), and screen display is very good quality.

The volume, and consequently the menu controls, are a little awkward for a new user like myself, but I can understand why the scrolling was designed that way.

Cons: You HAVE to use iTunes to add playable content to your iPod. If you just copy and paste media to it, it won't be detected and won't be played back. However, you can turn this thing into a portable hard drive as a result of that.

The ear buds aren't that comfortable. I followed someone else's recommendation about getting better head phones, but they haven't arrived yet as they were shipped seperately.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine from Apple because even though it was more expensive, they offered free engraving for your iPod, and I wanted to have my name on it if I ever lost it.

1 out of 5 eggs1st Mac Device Owner

Pros: Nice sounding player.

Cons: Only works with ITunes. I have 2 other mp3 players, Sandisk and Creative. Both are like super MP3 players compared to this. Its an okay player with good sound, but making a person use only Itunes to manage your music is just insane. Itunes, just so you know, is not that user friendly when it attempts to sync. Its like the Recording Industry asked Apple to grab their ankles and Steve Jobs excitedly jumped up and down raising his hand saying me... me.... me....
So once you put YOUR music on YOUR ipod, the music is no longer yours and cannot move the files back to your computer. Each time you plug into a new computer it erases your Ipod.
I personally like to manage my music myself and like having the option of using the MP3 player as a backup just in case I lose the file on my computer.
It has froze twice in a month and could not turn it off until someone that I knew that had one knew about this 2 button pressy thing that resets the device.

Other Thoughts: There is no way you could (legally at least) fill up 120gb of music. Just buy a simple 8gb MP3 player, you will be much happier, unless your a complete MAC dude and must have everything Apple.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I don't have the 120 GB but i have the 80 GB, still lots of storage for all my music. I currently have 50 gigs and climbing every week. I take it every where, and it sure beats carrying around lot of CD's especially when i go on vacation. Its very easy to navigate through the menus, and you can search for other songs you want to play and que them up while the others are playing. I want to get the 120 GB one so i can put Music Videos and movies on it and hook it up to a TV for partys. Its pretty durable too. I have droped it a couple of times, not very far and with a case on it, but its still a drop, and i works fine. I don't know why every body doesn't like itunes. I think its the easist app i have every used for an mp3 player (I have windows vista). All you have to do is drag your music into the folders on the left of the app and it automatically copys the song and syncs it. You can create different playlist and folders. You can have it sync music automatically or manualy.

Cons: It Freezes sometimes, but all you have to do is just hold down the select and Menu button for about 10 secs at the same time and it resets itself after about a minute. I never had a problem with it other than that. It doesn't have a radio, but thats not a big concern for me especally if i have 50 gigs of music on it. Battery isn't replaceale but i have never had a problem with it diying. It lasts pretty long. If you leave it out in the cold like in your car over night, it will say that there isn't any battery power left, but if you warm it up, after a while it is fine. I know its bad for the battery to leave it out in the cold but i have done that many times, and i still don't have any problems with the battery. And I have had this for about 2 years or so. before i had a case the back chrome part scratched easily but the important part (the front) has never scratched at all.
Not Cons - Price has come down to. My 80 gig when i bought it was $350.

Other Thoughts: More thoughts on Itunes are that you can also rename and edit the song info such as title and artist and much more right in itunes. You can even copy and paste lyrics in the lyrics area. to access the lyrics on your ipod you just hit the center button a couple of times and you can scroll through them very easily.

More on the ipod - you can suffle through just about everything, and if thats not enough you can scroll through the songs that you want and hold the center button and it will put them in to a new playlist that you can shuffle through. The bluetooth adapter that motorola has works awesome. Very clear music through it and i have the motorola S805 DJ headphones and it connects to that just as easily. I would sugest gettina a case for it to protect it. I have a "Body Glove" and it works pretty well. the touch pad is just the right sensitivity for me even with the case on. Games work well on it and are pretty entertaining. Thats about it (hope this was helpful)
