Apple iPod classic 120 GB
Advantages: This will last forever, it's never going to die.
Disadvantages: Scratches like hell, get ready for them.
You aren't going to get another product from apple that can withstand what this device can go through. With it's hard aluminium and chrome exterior you're never going to have to worry about this device breaking.
The memory in itself is enough to make this a buyable product. 120GB means you can throw anything on there and not have to worry about remaining memory. I have my entire iTunes library in there and it barely makes a dent, I think I've managed to take up 17GB now, and I've had this beast for 5 years.
That's right, I got my iPod Classic 5 years ago, people, that's how determined this thing is.
If you want something purely to store all your media, from pictures and music to films and podcasts this is the way to go. Why bother with the flimsy iPod touches and iPads with their vulnerable screens? When you can have this monster of a device that'll happily take all you can throw at it
In the box.
With it you get instructions, earphones, charging cable, all that good stuff you'd expect to accompany it. Apple are always pretty good in giving you what you need and directing you towards what you might want. Cases are available for the Classic but personally I went without, the chrome back was too shiny to hide away, and personally once it builds up scratches I think it actually looks better.
Like I said, I've had this thing for 5 years and it hasn't smashed, I would put money on it lasting another 5 years. It takes scratches almost immediately though, the chrome covering the back is so easy to scratch you might as well just accept once it comes out of the box it's going to get scratched like there's no tomorrow. Like I said I think it adds character, a completely spotless Classic makes it look it's never been used.
While it still in proper working condition, 5 years on the battery on it isn't as amazing as it used to be. I could get days out of it in the first two years but after that it just starts to dwindle. In saying that, though, I can still get a decent day's worth of music out of it.
Obviously in this day and age there are countless apps and smart devices out there that can do a billion and one things, this device is mainly for the music. Films and stuff work too but the screen is a tad on the small side for long use. So I'm saying that perhaps the small range of stuff that it does is a bad thing, but if you're going to buy this you buy it for the memory, not the apps.
Summary: If you're looking for something you won't want to replace any time soon, this is your iPod.
