User reviews for Apple iPod
9.2 / 10Combined Score
I have been very pleased with the functionality of the Apple iPod. I have used many versions of the iPod including the G5 iPod video, G1 iPod Nano and G1 iPod Shuffle and each has it's strong points. The iPod video and Nano use the famous click wheel which makes navigating through your songs, photos or videos extremely easy. The interface is very user-friendly and is very straight forward. The Shuffle, while it doesn't use the clickwheel or have a screen, is great for someone who isn't looking to hold a whole bunch of songs and wants the portability that it's small size gives.
iTunes, the program you use to load songs, photos and videos onto your iPod is an easy program to use once you figure out how everything works.
iPods do tend to scratch very easily so it's recommended that you get a case for it if you want ...
The distinctive white earbuds and size makes it an easily stolen item. It's now so light that you probably wouldn't notice it's gone. Unless you're on the other end of the buds, that it.
It has a low battery life as well, which can be quite annoying.
The easy to use iPod has become a byword for evolution. In the time before the millenium, (it seems like a different era) we used to listen to CD and Tape Walkmans. If we wanted a change, we would have to lug around a backpack full of them. Now, however, for something that is smaller, we can hold 400 CD's/Tapes worth (about 6000) of songs.
It's relatively cheap, and its versatility is amazing. you can play video's and movies (all be it on a 6"x4" screen), look at pictures, and listen to songs. You can also keep brief memo's in the Notes, the calendar has all your important dates on (after all, I used it to remember my dad's present last year), list your contacts, and keep full d...
Fragile, battery life somewhat short. No video compatibility (iPod Nano, but what can you expect?).
The iPod Nano is truly a work of art, in my opinion. I only have a 1 GB iPod, and yet it is enough to fulfill my daily music needs. The Nano comes with headphones, a USB connector, a Dock Adapter, and a case (but if you want your iPod to last, or you just want to personalize it, I suggest you buy another). It also comes with a Quick Start Guide and a CD with iTunes in it.
What you have to do is just install the files on the CD to your computer, and just connect the iPod to your computer using the USB Connector. You can synchronize the iPod with iTunes, making it easy to upload and download files. You can add music, plus text files and photos. You can make playli...
NB: Review based mainly upon 3rd Generation, 20GB iPod.
The iPod. Is there any other music player quite as well known? Quite as popular? The answer, no. Many people wonder just what makes it so damn good, what sets it above your run of the mill $30 MP3 players, what makes it one of the most popular fashion accessaries and what is really behind the unexplainable phenomenon. The truth is, it's a combination of things. The sleek portability, it seems weightless at times, and with it's very slim design fits perfectly into your pocket or bag, rather than those small and chunky MP3 players which are very uncomfortable. The 20GB and 40GB models are a moderate size, and the mini and nano are miniscule. The capacity. One of the biggest selling features, 20GB of storage. Most competitors find it hard to top that, and with the ability to hold 5000 songs it's no wonder. That's right, you can l...
I got an iPod mini a few months ago now and in my opinion it is the best mp3 player on the market. The capacity is perfect for someone that is not overly fanatical about music. At 1000 songs (4GB), there is over 40 hours of music and it equates to around 70 CD's. The player comes with the iTunes package so all you need to do is download and copy the songs to the player. Alternatively, just load a CD on and copy that to the player. There are also four simple but fun games to play. The games are Parachutes, Solitaire, Brick and Music Quiz. Music Quiz is great fun as you try and match the song title to the song. The extras are endless, you can add addresses using Microsoft Outlook, there is a calender and a vast range of equalizer settings to name just a fraction of the extras. The mini is very handy size-wise also and comes...
got no clue
you can put thousands
you could get all of you\r favourite and all the most hated songs on it and it still would be free space (depends on how much music you listen too tough)
it is a great mp3 player.
should have had more games tough
it's white.it has earphones.
Hey! This is my first hardware review and boy could it be a better piece of hardware?No.This is the apple iPOD and i love this thing!First off the sound quality for this machine is amazing!!Also this thing is very portable you can even put it in youre pocket and some times forget where it is.The earphones are also great.But it's white.It has earphones.This is expensive though so it won't fit everybodys budget because it's to bad they will miss out on a great machine.But the best thing about the iPOD is that it can hold thousands of songs on this so you can put all youre favourite songs and listen to them anytime!!Overall i highly recomend it but be warned it is expensive.
Freak 2345 is out.
Battery life (8 hours)
I have had this thing for a few months and I love it. The sound quality is really great. It is nice having a hard drive instead of a minidisk that way it loads faster. The famous click-wheel is really easy to use to cycle through menus to find the one song you are looking for.
There are very fw things that are bad about this however. The price is insane for a 4gig mp3 player. Also the battery life is only 8 hours. That seems like a lot, but it's really not. But all the postives of this far outweighs the bad. I do believe that it is worth the 250 dollars needed to buy this very popular music gadget.
