Apple iPod classic 80 GB
Advantages: Extremely useful features, easy to use.
Disadvantages: Connection problems within headphone socket.
I have had my iPod classic for nearly 2 years now, and am sad to report that I am beginning to have problems with the connection between the iPod and headphones; the iPod has a feature in which the music pauses if connection is lost between the headphone and the iPod, which up until now was a useful feature, however as the connection has been hindered possibly due to taking the headphones in and out repeatedly over the years, the iPod pauses repeatedly with every slight movement of the wire on the headphones. Apparently, this is a well known problem for iPod classics of this age, therefore I strongly suggest that you should check the guarantee and keep an eye out for signs of this problem!
However, aside from this I haven't experienced any other problems with the iPod classic, and it has proved to be a fantastic piece of technology!
The size is perfect for easy use, and gives a large screen in which you can watch your favourite music videos or films on, or browse through album covers, all with full colour!
The light touch wheel is very effective and responsive to the smallest of movements, which makes searching through music easy, and also proves nifty when playing the games installed on the iPod! And following from this, you can tailor make your own quiz to put onto the iPod through iTunes, which proves very entertaining!
Also, you can download podcasts, your own personal pictures, notes, set alarms, stopwatches and add contacts onto the iPod, which gives the effect of a mini organiser, very useful!
Within the settings you can adjust the volume lock in order to control the levels which come out of the headphones, of which are high quality, and can also adjust the EQ to your liking!
All in all, despite the problem of the connection within the headphone socket, the iPod classic has excellent features and you can tailor it to your liking, very very useful!
Summary: Long lasted excellence!
