Another great buy.
on 21 April 2014
I purchased this iPod to replace one which has been in use for over four years. I estimate that the one being replaced has been in use for an average of about 5 hours per day for these four years and has finally given up the ghost. Perhaps Apple will repair it under their exchange scheme. The 160GB has always been put to good use but has never been filled. There are 27 full length films on it, used mainly during frequent flights to Europe, and about 30GB of music. Fabulous piece of kit. Best player out there.
Additional information a couple of months after purchase:-
The Apple store DO NOT repair/replace any items which have been out of production for six years or more. They do not state this on their website but give the impression that items will simply be "swapped out" rather than repaired but give no age limit. They offered me a 10% discount on a new iPod but this still made it more expensive than Amazon.
Despite Apple's reluctance to keep to their repair scheme, I still think this is the best MP3 player about.
The EU Volume Limit can be overcome as reported elsewhere in these reviews under "Settings" on the iPod itself.
