ipod classic 3rd generation (15 GB)
the ipod classic 3rd generation is one of the best ipods. It does not support videos or photos, and it has a black and white screen, but what makes it special is its unique design. unlike the other ipods this one was completely touch sensitive. The menu, forward, backward, and play/pause buttons light up in bright red to let you see them in the dark. It also was the first ipod to have backlight display, and the first one to be able to sinc with usb 2.0 with the 30-pin dock connector, but could only charge through FireWire or through a wall/car charger.This ipod could store many songs. It came in 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 GB, which is enough for most people. However what i don't like about this ipod is that even if its taken care of, it will only last about 2-3 years and will need either hard drive repairs or a new battery installation. I still recommend you buy this ipod because it is really great even for its age.Read full review

Very nice old worthy, honorable product!!!
Good value if you have specific uses for this older generation iPod. I like it for my specific political podcasts while lounging at home or riding bike: I hit a bump with my last 3rd gen and the HD broke, so I got another reasonably priced one here. Batteries and HD's are easy to replace which is why I buy them!

Good for the iPod fanatic, OK for the casual user...
I bought this 3rd generation iPod for the first time about three years ago. Although it only lasted a few months after I bought it (it broke), I decided to get another one in the past month or so after having a couple of Nanos.
Anyways, I like the simple black-and-white screen (I often found color models to be quite daunting at times, and the real purpose behind them of being able to watch videos and view photos never reached me.) The 15 GB size is fair enough to hold my moderate sized music collection, although some might prefer the extra few gigs for their videos.
The buttons are relatively easy to use, although I tend to lock the buttons because all are touch sensitive and sticking your hand in your pocket where the iPod is often will shut it off or suddenly change the volume, so some may think that the button layout makes it too sensitive to use.
Battery life is fair enough (most of these iPods of this generation have poor battery life anyways; the one I purchased had a replacement battery, and it is a plus with this generation of iPod.
Another thing is the lag time between when you choose the song and it begins playing. Anyone graduating from a flash-based player such as the Nano, Touch, or Shuffle may find it annoying that you have to wait 2 seconds for a song to play (although it is not a bad thing in my personal opinion.)
I really think for the price range (~$75-$100) it is worth the purchase price, especially for those who have a music collection of average size (~2000 songs). The menus are no harder to navigate than a larger-storage iPod, and you won't be able to find a better iPod price with the features that this model has.
Finally, the options available. Most of the cases and add-ons available have been sold out, so it might be a bit hard if you are looking for things such as a case or skin for this generation. On the iPod, only a simple shuffle is at the front; otherwise you have to navigate through the menus to turn it on.
Overall, although this is an older model iPod and doesn't possess a lot of the glitz and glamour that today's Nano and Touch possess, I still like it because of its simple and friendly approach, and even though it has a monochrome screen, I still find it more than adequate for my purposes. If you like the original iPod and its nostalgic value, then this is for you. Otherwise, aim for a newer generation iPod.Read full review

Ipod 3rd Generaton (not Nano)
I really love these Ipods! Even though they do require that you charge them with a special Ipod firewire cable and jack plug. It's cool the way that the touch sensitive buttons on the front light up. Very unique.The one I purchased was in perfect condition with over a thousand songs on board. I think they didn't understand the need for the special cable to sink and charge it. This will most likely be the only style of Ipod I will use, as long as I can find batteries and parts. They don't do pictures. They have a monochrome screen. But they do have alarms, calendars and game features.
I repair Ipods for a hobby and I have 4 of these 3G Ipods. 2 came to me in great condition and 2 not but easily repaired.
I will have 2 of them for sale next month with good audio jacks, hard drives and new batteries. And the proper Ipod firewire cables and plug jack. Plus they will be Apple sauce cleaned and as pretty as they can get. Be watching and you to can have one of these unique and cool little Ipods too.Read full review
