iPod Video 80GB...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple iPod 80GB Video/White (5th Generation) (Electronics)
I decided to go for this iPod to replace my 15GB model as I needed more memory. The old iPod still works & gives 6 hours of continuous playback even after 4 years, so I decided to stick with Apple.
I'm really enjoying the new features that weren't on my old player. The video playback is great & the quality is very good. I like having all my album artwork on display & the abilty to play games in colour & view photographs is a bonus. You do have to purchase the better games from the iTunes store, but they are reasonably priced.
The one point of contention I have is that the quoted 20 hours playback just isn't achievable. 15 hours would be a much more realistic boast.
As with all Apple products this is a great looking item, which is easy to use. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase & the price offered by Amazon is the best around.
PS: The issue with iTunes only allowing you to authorise 5 computers for use with your account doesn't hold the problem noted by a previous reviewer. You simply deauthorise any computer you no longer use, allowing you to select another.
