|The Apple iPod Classic 5th Generation MP3 Player offers an excellent combination of aesthetic appeal and usability. It includes a 2.5-inch color LCD display that has an LED backlight for easy reading in dark or dim conditions. Thanks to this device's compatibility with iTunes for both Mac and Windows, it is easy to sync music and photos between the library saved on the computer and the media available on the iPod itself, including JPEG, BMP, GIF, and other picture files. This iPod's 80 GB of storage allows users to upload thousands of songs or hundreds of pictures to their device for great portability and accessibility.

The enhanced iPod has the same sleek design with improved video battery life and brighter screen; it brings gapless playback to the masses; up to 80GB; new features such as instant search and enhanced games; movies now available in iTunes 7; excellent overall value.
The Apple iPod has added no major functions such as FM radio, wireless, recording; small screen not conducive to movie viewing; proprietary USB cable; narrow native video-format compatibility; body is still scratch prone.
The amazingly low priced updated Apple iPod gets many under-the-hood improvements, but it's still not a true video player.
