Advantages: Fantastic amount of space and sleek design
The first thing that comes to mind with the ipod classic is the iconic, sleek apple design. This is definitely reflected in the design of this particular model, however the lack of any grippy surface means that it is probably advisable to get a case. It comes in either Black or Silver with a decent sized screen and the iconic apple click wheel. The packaging is absolutely fantastic and keeps the product safe, inside the pack there is also a manual, the classic white earbuds and a usb adapter as well as a dock adapter to make sure the ipod can fit any speaker dock.
Onto the ipod itself, an absolutely fantastic piece of tech it comes preloaded with all you need to start dancing around, all you need to do is supply your own music. The IPod also comes preloaded with 3 games, vortex a futuristic style bounce the ball game, Klondike a solitaire style game and I Quiz, a game that comes preloaded with trivia questions but also utilises your music library to make a quiz using the songs you love and should know, and with room for about 20,000 songs there are a lot of different options for a quiz.
Capacity, its what the ipod classics are all about, they may not be overly thin or have a touch screen and camera but boy do they have space, and in seeming abundance. 80 gigabytes is certainly enough for most music collections. But if music isn't your preferred choice then the ipod can also play video.
Navigation can be a bit of an issue though, the clickwheel is a somewhat clumsy way of navigating around a menu especially with such a large space offered but none the less this only minutely detracts from such a fantastic piece of tech.
Durability was something that i was definitely worried about when i bought the ipod, the silver surface and the exposed screen seemed to almost be a magnet for scratches, and while this may be true, with the addition of a cheap case you can definitely prevent most of these. The hard disk however is the most delicate component in the ipod, and while i have had no problem with it one of my friends have. However this was corrected thanks to the wonderfull apple warranty
I have found it a great piece of tech for everyday life, walking to school and so on. It's easy to use, even with the clickwheel and the design really stands out from the crowd. It's definitely something that i would recommend buying if you're looking for an amazingly versatile MP3 and MP4 player with a sleek and sexy design and you need a lot of storage
In conclusion the IPod is a fantastically versatile MP3 and MP4 player with a sleek and sexy design and enough memory for any music collection and something that i would definitely recommend purchasing
Summary: A fantastic piece of tech with a sexy sleek design
