The best jukebox in your pocket just got better!
on 20 June 2010
I love mp3 players. After 47 years of listening to music I have a wealth of music and I am still buying music today. Over the years I have spent thousands on sound systems and records/cd's. What better way to listen to music without upsetting others (which I have done often) than by sticking some little pods in your ear. I have got 2700 songs on this IPOD player. It is annoying though that they call it a 16GB but, just like computers you don't get 16gb you get 14.8. Now THAT is a rip off. Can't take a star off though because this is already 5 star plus plus plus and more!
I have had several mp3 players over the years, the CREATIVE brand and Apple have been the best I have tried. The thing I find frustrating at the moment with Apple is the big gap between the 16gb storage of the NANO and the 160 GB of the classic. There is nothing from Apple in between. 16gb is not big enough for my record collection but 160gb is way too big. I did consider buying the 160gb anyway but what swung it was the radio on the Nano. I love having the choice of radio or my cd's. You can also pause live radio if you want.
The video, though a nice addition, I wouldn't waste valuable music space by storing any videos on.
I don't think the sound is any different between the 4th generation and the 5th. I found the ear pods don't fall out as often as my 4th generation did. I don't know why that is because they all look the same. My reason for upgrading was purely because I had the 8gb and needed more space. As it turns out I need more than the 16gb....oh well....Dear FAther Christmas, if those nice people at Apple bring out a 30GB IPOD with a radio in (preferably DAB) then please please could I have one? I promise to be good etc etc
Update - Still brilliant but the pedomitor does not work. It seems to be an issue which Apple are ducking at the moment. When the pedomitor is on there is an annoying clicking sound and the speed of the track playing varies. The pedomitor suddenly stops working for no apparent reason as well. So you know you have done 5000 steps but the screen shows only 1262. Then for no reason it starts working again. Annoying but not the reason I bought this brilliant piece of kit!!!
