Apple iPod classic 80 GB
Advantages: Great style, quality video
I have owned many different iPods over the years, they have all been amazing. The iPod classic was where my love affair with apple iPods started. My iPod classic still is used today and is my favourite ipod for many reasons. I just can't get rid of old iPods, I believe I now have 5 different iPods. I will now go into more detail on this classic piece of kit.
I have no idea how much these sell for now, but when I purchased this brand new about 4 years ago it set me back around £175. I remember saving up for it myself and being so happy with it! It cost me a fortune, but at the time it was cool to have one of these.
This iPod supported video playback, this meant that I used to watch movies and music videos on this, it was perfect for the long bus journey for college. You can also store photos on it and play sideshows of your photos. The iPod came with a couple of basic games, at the time these were brilliant, these days they would be considered poor due to the availability of modern apps. This iPod was great for images and I love how it displays the album artwork on screen. I purchased the 80gb model but never even used half of it, I have around 2,000 songs and a few movies and this hardly touched the memory, i wish my current iPhone had this much memory. This iPod has all the usual features of an iPod such as shuffle, podcasts and playlists. The select things you use the scroll pad which is easy to use and much different from the iPod touch way of selecting songs. I am so used to my iPhone, that when I use this it feels so strange.
I believe this to be the best looking iPod so far. It is a large size and rather heavy to hold, it had the fantastic scroll menu with the skip and play button. I had the black version and it looks stunning. My iPod still works today, I do not use it as much. But when I go abroad I take this because I am paranoid about losing my beloved iPhone :)
I believe this to be the best looking iPod so far, it is solid and works well. It is reliable and is a genuine iPod, it's the best non touch iPod to date. When it played videos this was cutting edge. I would recommend this to anyone who loves iPods. The screen quality when watching videos is excellent and the sound quality produced when you have headphones in is great. You can get these fairly cheap now on eBay and I think that would be a good place to get one :)
This gets 5 stars from me. It really is a classic, can't fault it. Thanks for reading :) josh
