I am looking for an iPod to replace my one that died last week. I found this one and the title says 7 gen 120 GB. The picture shows a black Ipod. When I scroll down to details the details say it is a WHITE 40 GB in one place in the description. In another place it says it is a 4 GB. No way to contact the seller... WTH? Be very careful!!!

iPod 40 GB
More than enough storage. I have 1200+ songs loaded and there is way more space to go. No longer have to use my iPhone for listening. I like the classic, easy to use.

Very satisfied! Great product, leeves a lasting impression!
I have always prefered the larger and more "built" Ipod players, for the "feel" of 10,000 songs is great, lets you know there is more when you press that forward button. Yet, I recently purchased an Ipod classic (6th gen) and the feel was great and it had 80 GB of storage; but, the Harddrive died on me after about a year of use, and it holds no more than 500 songs. But I have loved this Ipod Photo ever since I recieved it! It has been working hard since 2005, and still retains factory performance. The 40 GB Ipod Photo runs smoothly and will freeze for a few seconds (only if you fill it up), but it has never had any problems running. I have alot of Jazz, so I can only get about 7000 songs onto this thick beast, but all the songs sound great! And the sound quality will really be impressive if you compare to the newer Ipods. The bass isnt as muddy and frequencies as low as 30 hz are brought out to give you a greater soundscape (perfect for Jazz and Classical). It has the built in power to drive my Sennheiser stereophonic headphones without the use of a headphone amp...and on the go, thats REALLY helpful. Though, many complain about battery life, and I can see where this might effect the overall quality of the Ipod Photo; yet it depends on the time and place of usage. At home, I listen to my library via Y-cable on my stereo. I dont drive very far weekly, and I dont ever jog with a HDD player (no matter the skip protection). The battery life works for my application, but some may think otherwise. It is true, this Ipod will start to loose is battery storage capability over the years of usage, but mine hasent lost much...probably an hour or so...and thats nothing. That aside, the build quality it amazing! Like most apple products, it feels sturdy and very masculine (if I may say). The chrome back WILL scratch (even if you blow on it), so a case is recommended. But there is nothing wrong with this device on build, its all strong and chizzled. The only thing that seems to go wrong mostly with HDD ipods, is the hard-drive. And its true! Side note: This thing is huge! Take ANY ipod classic today and compare, you wont believe how thick this sucker is! Although some dont like a big HDD player in their hand, I enjoy the feel of this 4th gen 40 GB. It is a very big peice of stainless steel, and if you keep it clean...makes a damn good mirror :) Overall, I am very very impressed with this product and it wont take you very much to find a good one cheap. I would debate that the older gen Ipods have better sound quality, build quality, and more "feel" than the most current apple devices out now. Tip: MANY will agree with me, you may get excited with buying a 249$ ipod classic, but most apple products arent worth what they are asking for! So do yourself and your WALLET a favor...buy used players that have been cared for and referbished with skill, so you dont get a dud or a fake.

If you can keep the battery up, it can be a good music provider.
This version isn't as nice as the slimmer one. The battery doesn't last as long. Plus resetting is a pain, when the ipod has been formatted for Mac and you have a Windows system. I bought a second hand one and that was it's problem. Other than it is a little heavier than my thin one, it maybe a good item if I can get it reformatted.

4th Gen Ipod Photo
This is my second used ipod, don't buy new!! Ipod's are a great device, but in my opinion not worth the new asking price when used is a fraction. I have a 5th gen video 30gb and picked up this 40gb 4th gen. The 5th gen is certainly a nicer machine, much thinner, however both produce decent sound and otherwise work the same. Could be me, but it seems like the 4th gen sync's slower. I do prefer the color/larger screen of the 5th, but seriously, forget about watching movies on it, so for that reason, if you can pick up 40gb of 4th gen for 1/2 a 30gb 5th gen, do it! In both cases though, I have an older Samsung YH-999 Yepp that has a screen twice the size, has far better color then the 5th gen, has better sound then either and displays its menu, _including_ album art, on my TV screen, neither Ipod can do that. Ipods on the other hand have endless add-on's available and iTunes is actually pretty decent compared to Windows Media (which the Samsung uses). I've spent a little over $150 for both ipods, a couple of excellent Griffin docks, a Pioneer adapter cable and a Monster FM cable, hell of a pile of good stuff for that kind of coin. Read full review
