5.0 out of 5 stars
Damn! I'm impressed, Didn't want to be!, 19 Dec. 2004
I've had several other mp3 players including the Zen touch and other flash based players such as the Creative Muvo and a DMR unit.
I don't think I have ever picked up a piece of consumer electronics that imparted the same feelng of quality and sheer "design" that this Ipod U2 edition does.
I know its shallow but it looks and feels geougeous! The "complete U2" pack I've downloaded is fantastic, especially with the £40 off coupon you get with the player.
Itunes works flawlessly on my Xp pro system and makes buying music online a snap, I have seen the end for high street cd retailers!
The sound is amazing, I can't describe the difference it seems "richer" and "fuller" than the other players, ears are different I guess so that may be subjective.
Using the Ipod is a " no-brainer". Instructions not required!
Interface is a triumph of simplicity, Technology as it should be.
Battery life is fine for me,(I'm getting around 10hrs) I use the ipod to play daily new's papers from audible.com as well as music so the unit sits in its dock, (an extra) overnight anyway.
To sum up: Take it from a veteran of MP3 players, This really is the best! I never go with the crowd usually but I am reallly really impressed!
