Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewExcellent

  • THE GOOD

    "Intuitive photo viewing; displays album art; adds color to your iPod experience; mammoth 40GB hard drive; includes dock (with S-Video out), FireWire cable, A/V cable, and carrying case not included with newer 30GB and 60GB versions; latest firmware update plus optional Camera Connector allows for direct digital-camera transfers of photos that are viewable on iPod."

  • THE BAD

    Package doesn't include iPhoto 4.0; battery life is poor when used primarily for viewing photos; slightly heavier and thicker than fourth-generation iPod.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "Although it's no longer available through Apple, the 40GB iPod Photo is a good value, considering its lower street price and inclusion of some key accessories."

Busy Running Mom of 2 loves the Ipod!!!

I also love my Ipod!! Like all of us busy moms, we have no time to sit & read directions on anything besides kid’s toys! The Ipod is the perfect MP3 player for the mom on the go. I just plugged the thing in my computer & everything was set up & finished in just a few minutes. The "music store" is awesome too! Another good feature is that my friends can plug their IPod in my computer to get music out of my library that they do not have(I think this only works with IPod-IPod but not sure). I take this thing with me everywhere & with 2(one who is a toddler) kids it has taken a beating! IPod is very small (same size as my cell phone)& light & I just slip it into a little front pocket of my bag. For anyone who exercises this thing is perfect! I run with mine & it just clips on & stays in place. With a Jack Russell on a leash in one hand, I can't take anything too bulky or heavy. The sound quality is great & I love the easy to use scroll wheel. While running I can easily change the options(takes a little practice to scroll & go to songs, playlists, find which playlist I want to run to at that time & then change back to main library when I want to hear something else but you will get the hang of it in no time). Most people do not go thru as many songs as I do while running I'm sure. At night, the glow light makes it easier to see what may be slithering in front of me on the road. IPod has the option of light being on/off & how long you want it on or always have it on. My roads are pretty dark with just a few street lights & I have to say that the IPod's glow light's up a pretty good size area around me. I also use this feature to flash at the vehicles that are approaching so they see me! I cannot be more than pleased with my Ipod. Update for IPod: I can officially say my IPod must know I love it! On vacation last week I was jogging on the ocean shoreline when my dog pulled unexpectedly on her leash I guess thinking she was going to get a seagull. The IPod was in my hand & I accidentally dropped it! At the same time it fell to the sand a wave came & my 2nd fav. running partner was in the water! I blew on the bottom components thinking maybe drying it might save it. By the time I got back to our beach house the Ipod was stuck on the song I was listening to “pause" mode must have been one of the last buttons I was pushing after I picked it up out of the water. I then propped it up & hoped it would work later. On our way to dinner my son asked if I would plug the IPod in (I have the vehicle adapter too) & I told him what I did (you should have seen the look on his face!). I plugged the thing in after holding it in front of the AC vent....thinking maybe one last attempt at drying might help &...... IT WORKED! Right before I snapped it to the adapter I was telling my husband that I was going to have to buy another IPod when we get back. It has been a week since my IPod accident & I haven't had a problem with it, listen to it on a daily basis, run with it almost every day & even dropped the thing again (2 yr. old thought she needed to "play" with it). I thought adding this little story might help with decision making & wondering how "durable" they are. I think I am going to fork out the extra money for the jogger sleeve that goes on your arm(I haven't bought it because I do not like running with anything on my arm). 12-2006: IPOD still works as if it were brand new & I have dropped it a few more times while running.

Why the 20GB iPod is a Great Value

As a seller, I have sold everything from a 512MB shuffle to a 60GB iPod Video. I have seen and tested just about every iPod Apple has come out with, and ironically, for my personal use I prefer the July 2004 release 20GB 4th generation. The next big question is why.
1) Price
These are one of the most affordable iPod units available. When I hear someone had their iPod stolen and are looking to replace it, or do not have much money to spend and want an iPod, I point them this way.

2)Storage
The storage that comes with these is just amazing for the price. Want to put 5,000 songs on an iPod? No problem. I know there are now much bigger hard drives out there for iPods, but you cannot beat the value for storage comparison on the 4th Generation.

3)Simplicity
For those who do not need color to hear music, or a video screen, or a sleek design, this iPod just gets the job done. It has all the standard features, and a TON of storage, making it simple to use and easy to enjoy all your favorite music. Again, sparing the extra features spares your wallet.

Final note: These are very rarely sold new because they are no longer in production. The majority of the 4th generation units are used or refurbished. They will most likely be pretty well used since the unit was released so long ago, so a silicon case is a good investment (especially since the shiny back of these picks up scratches very easily). But, the most important thing is to remember when purchasing is to make sure you buy off a seller who offers a warranty so that if any problems come up you can have your unit replaced or repaired.

Greatest iPod so far!

The iPod 30 GB Photo offers all the features we know and love in the iPod, plus the capability to use it for photos. Now, viewing a photo on that tiny little screen is impressive - great quality - but less than fullfilling. It's just too small.

But here's the great part of the iPod photo feature... with an inexpensive adapter from eBay or your local Apple store, you can download your digital camera temporarily to your iPod, then later download your iPod to your PC. What does this mean? You can take your iPod on a trip with your digital camera, and never have to lug around your whole PC while traveling again! And music while you travel is a bonus!

Oh, and it displays PodCasts, video broadcasts of things from TV shows to informational lectures, available free or inexpensively on the 'net. Folks with old eyes like mine may find this a difficult feature to use, however.

And if you've been living under a rock, you may not know that iPods offer the ability to store a huge library of songs, either from your existing CDs or purchased from on-line music libraries such as iTunes, Napster, or others.

I recommend the iPod Photo 30 GB - it's a great iPod for ALL your media needs! (Unless you can afford the Photo 60 GB...)

4th Gen Ipod, a leap in personal technology.

There are a lot of MP3 players out on the market today and they all have the same basic functionally but when Apple introduced the Ipod it was, not just a step, but a leap in technology. The first, second, and third generations were a great beginning, as for the fourth generation Apple took all they learned from the previous generations and truly produced one of the most functional MP3 players on the market.
What makes it stand out from the rest is a true MMI, man-machine-interface, with is click wheel to the remarkable menu system, to is docking station, slim lines and music storage capacity to rival some desk top computers and not forgetting the sound quality.
I have three fourth gen Ipods that I use, one in my Silverado, another I take to the gym for my workouts, and the third I use in my high-end audio gear as the source, playing through a TP-E9000ES preamp. I have a TP-S9000ES that I play auto CD’s with and in playing the same songs from both I cannot tell the difference in sound quality.
When down loading songs the menu system, when linked to the Apples itunes allows you the freedom to choose virtually any configuration, from sorting by genre, play list that you can create, to allowing the ipod to randomly play songs.
When it comes to the cons, there are no cons, this is the best MP3 player bar none.
