Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewExcellent


    The second-generation Apple iPod Touch has it all: music, videos, photos, podcasts, e-mail, Web browsing, Internet radio, games, Nike+, Wi-Fi music downloads, and an App Store for adding thousands of custom features.


    The second-generation iPod Touch may be overwhelming to users looking for a simple music player; audio quality is average; and iTunes software is required.


    The second-generation iPod Touch includes features that are light-years ahead of the competition, its design has improved, and its price has finally come down to earth.

Fast Shipping! Highly recommended!!! Excellent Seller!!

The iPod touch 3rd generation is technically a 2nd generation device with an updated operating system. It offers an incredible video iPod, pocket computer, and portable game player all in a single sleek unit with exceptional battery life. The iPod touch offers the same Multi-Touch interface as the iPhone, which allows you to use your fingers to control all aspects of the iPod. The touch has WiFi capability for connecting to the Internet, checking email, and connecting to the iTunes store. Bluetooth technology allows you to connect wirelessly to other devices for seamless integration or enjoy wireless stereo sound by using Bluetooth headphones. The 3rd generation iPod touch also offers Spotlight search, voice controls, and voice memos with the OS 3.1 software, as well as cut, copy, and paste functions and Genius Playlists and Mixes.

A great little electronic

I am not a great judge but I found this iPod Touch very useful, there is many in one. You can surf thee web, play and record music, play video, and apps. You can see how they really put effort into the size. It fits anywhere. Can you carry a laptop in your pocket?

Of course the size is not the best, but at least it can go anywhere. The battery life is great. If you set it there and not do anything, it can go 36 hours. Thats pretty great for a slim piece of technology.

It's wifi is very easy access, no hooking up wires or setting up a connection for hours. The web isn't the best but enough to get by. It should pay all Youtube and videos, especially mp4 videos.

The iTunes is great! Buying and downloading songs and videos s fast and easy. Get whatever you want without walking to the CD store or Blockbuster.

And finally, apps. This might be the best part of the iPod Touch. Having the ability to play little entertaining games is great! Especially for children while on trips or airplanes! Even I use them myself. Or I could check the weather on the app, and know to bring an umbrella!

What a smart little device!

Pretty good.

For the price I paid (172$ from a coupon or sale from Walmart,) it was definitely worth it. Everything was working perfectly and running quite smooth until the 4.0 update. Folders are stupid, and it made the iPod so much more laggy. But I downgraded the firmware back to 3.1.3 and it was almost as smooth and fast as the new 4th gen iPod touch. DO NOT UPDATE TO 4.0 OR HIGHER, IT'S NOT WORTH IT.
The overall performance of the iPod 2g is quite exceptional, youtube, internet browsing, and gameplay are great.
Although Apple boasts the iPod Touches are the greatest handheld gaming devices, they are blowing their horn. Trying to play fps, and action games are kind of hard, as there are no real controls.
The hardware is very good, the touchscreen is very responsive and I picked up how to learn to use it in a matter of minutes. However, some downsides is that the chrome backing is a fingerprint magnet, and picks up scratches from just putting it in your pocket and using it.
Cases are easy to find, and screen protectors solve the problem of screen scratching. However, cases of high quality are usually 20$, but I bought a silicone one from ebay for 2$, it works great, but the silicone material picks up a lot of lint.
OVERALL, it's a great product, and now that the 4th gen came out, go and get yourself one if you dont want to dish out 220$+ on the 4th, because people are selling new, unopened 2nd generations for 125$ to about 180$

Excellent ... BUT!!!

The unit itself is excellent. I love it. BUT, why the hell did the Idiots from Apple change the stylis, so that you have to use a special one, that is NOT AVAILABLE ANYPLACE, except on ebay. What idiots would do that? And why the H don't they include one in their packaging if they HAVE to change the type of stylis. I know, so they can make you buy a special one, and pay more money for it. But how can you even buy one, if you can't get it from any store that supplies apple products, can't find it at Radio Shack, can't get it from any office supply store like Office Max or Office Depot. You can't even buy it in the Grand Rapids area from the only Apply supply stores "Meijers". What was Apple thinking. If the unit itself wasn't no nice, i'd totally boycott Anything Apply Makes. Think ahead next time "Apple"!!! And why do i need a stylis..because my fingers are too big to fit in a pencil sharpener to type on the small screen. The batter life is not anything like it is projected to be, but then I do use it for games etc. I would also suggest to get a better rocket scientist to write the itunes software which is confusing as hell. All in all the Apple Ipod Touch is an excellent and fun product.
P.S. who is their right mind would pay the price Apple is trying to get for their new IPhones? Close to a grand, cummon Apple!!! Why do you think you are that much better than the rest, and why are you computers so much more expensive than IBM. That's my main beef with Apple is PRICE! They are NOT worth it. When they lower their price, they will sell very well.

Great All-Around iPod

I haven't owned many iPods or other MP3 players to compare it to, but I have never noticed much lacking in the 2nd generation iPod touch!
The sound quality is great. The touch screen is fun and easy to use, and I never have any trouble finding the song, album, or artist that I'm looking for.
The external speakers aren't very loud, but I'm still glad to have them.
I haven't used it much for games or apps, but when I have it's worked well.
The wifi access ability was the main reason I decided to buy this iPod instead of a different version. It's a great to be able to check my e-mail and such when I'm at a cafe or at the library. Typing on the little touch screen keyboard isn't ideal, and can be a slow process due to the size, but it works and is a useful feature to have.
As for battery life, I've found it to be very very good. I've gone for days without needing to charge it when I use it only to listen to music. If I use it for internet access or games it usually lasts about 2 to 3 hours.
The main thing (maybe the only thing) that I don't really like about the iPod touch is that you can't put things onto it without downloading the iTunes media player. I think it would be nice if it could be used with any media player.
Other then that, I think it's a great iPod.
