This old ipod produce the better sound quality than the current version.
The reason for buying this old school and chunky classic ipod is the quality of its amplifier parts old version ipod ( version I to 5.5 ).It produce a better sound quality than the new model iPod. The design may out of date. It looks similar with the current one, but thicker. Someone said it more sturdy than the new version in apple store now. But one thing to consider is the longevity of battery. Mostly can hold the charge, but not as good as the new as it ten or more years old.
If the sound quality is what you are searching for. This old school ipod will never let you down. I would recommend to the audiophile or the guys out there who serious about the sound quality rather than the look of the iPod.Read full review...
Perfect if all you want is music.
Holds thousands of songs
EASY to control and navigate with the innovative click wheel
Excellent user interface and easy to sync with iTunes
Screen is clear, easy to read, and backlit with a easy on the eyes light
Has a few little extra features, like a couple fun games to kill time
Great sound quality
Since it is an iPod, the resale value is very good when you decide to get something else
Comfortable to hold
It'll sync with older computers unlike the latest iPods that only work with Windows XP and up or Mac OSX 10.4 and up
Battery life isn't as good as newer iPods, but it is still very good and replaceable for about $6 if you do it yourself
Doesn't have color screen meaning no pictures and video
Bulkier than newer models, but not by too much
Unless you want all the features of the newer iPods like pictuers, album artwork, and video, then this iPod would be perfect for you. It is great for music. Very easy to use since iTunes automates a lot of the work. Just a great player unless you want those fancy features that a lot of people never really put to much use anyway!Read full review...
Great item if you're tired of going smaller and smalle
This item is simply great. For those of you who do not want a small 2 inch music player this is for you.
It has some weight, and is a pretty good size, but nicely fits in your pocket.
Great sound output
Easy to use
Some games included
Auto pause when earphones removed
Excellent on battery life and charges quickly
If it does freeze it's easy to reboot within seconds without losing information
Can double as a storage device (Bootable and standard)
Not the easiest to break as with most players
It does have a moveable hard drive, BUT it will almost never skip, even when jumping up and down swinging it around wildly.
Sleek, nice, and easyRead full review...
It does that Job!
There's nothing fancy about this item. If you're looking for fancy check out an iPod Touch. but this does the Job and has plenty of room for many songs. 20G is more than enough for me. I used a FM Transmitter with it in my car that charged it while it played and while it was in stand by mode so I never ran out of battery.
I actually just got an iPhone 3GS so I am reselling this item on ebay. Apple is the best for Mp3 players and computers, so I definitely recommend this if you're looking for something to listen to music with in your car. or even for a student. The size is a bit bulky, so if you're looking for an iPod to job with, an iPod Nano would fit you better. Thanks.Read full review...
iPods in general
ipods are amazing electronics I will say but like every person who has owned an ipods for a long time (more than 2 years) they will have something come up. ipods that use disk hard drives have a huge tendency to break. Have you ever seen the ipod with the x's as eyes? most likely thats a broken hard drive and I've replaced the hard drives and they run like new aftarwards. My biggest suggestion is to get a nano because they use a flash hard drive which doesn't skip and crash like the other ipods do. However if you are good with your hands or you have buddies who know their stuff, they are in most cases really easy to assemble so fixing parts is a breeze and many times fairly in expensive if you can get a broken one fixed.Read full review...
Good iPod if all you want is a lot of music
This iPod is nice for people who only want to listen to the music. If you don't need all thouse fancy features of the newer iPods, this one is a nice little device. All I was looking for is a lot of storage space for my music, so I am satisfied.
Just a little thing I don't like about mine is that sometimes it may freese, but I guess that happens with a lot of them for some reasons. But it is bareable.Read full review...
A Great MP3 Player, which needs little improvement.
I personally bought this item as a collectible, as I collect previous generations of iPods. If you're a collector than you'll want this iPod just to say that you have it, but if you're actually looking for an MP3 player, than this is not a bad choice.
Like all iPods, it is basically a glorified hard drive, with the ability to read what is on the hard drive. Unlike the current iPod Classics, this does not have video capabilities, but these cost drastically less, so for somebody who only wants to listen to music, this is a good option. The only real design flaw is that the headphone jack on the generation is a bit prone to chipping, though this rarely results in loss of functionality of the headphone jack- it merely is cosmetically less attractive.
The bottom line is that this is a standard 20gb ipod; there are 3 different generations of ipods with the same amount of storage space and same capabilities- to play music, and nothing more. It really comes down to personal preference, though this is the largest option available, which may deter you. I suggest the 4th generation, simply because the wheel is clickable, making navigating through a music library faster. Also parts are much more cheaper, should yours need repair.Read full review...
Rugged 20gb Ipods
The 20gb clickwheel Ipod that was made in the 4th generation is head and shoulders above most everything else Apple made. Built like a tank but with those smooth Ipod lines this little guy will continue to play music and keep your contacts and appointment going for you way beyond when other MP3 players are sitting in the trash pile. Easy to understand interface with a large capacity for music and being able to walk into most Electronics stores and find accessories for this Ipod make it one of the most desired Ipods that Apple ever made. With battery life well into 6, 8, or even 12 hours of listening time it will go where you go without the need of worrying about recharging or carrying a bunch of chargers around. This Ipod is a great choice for anyone that is starting out and needs the cost of the Ipod to correspond with what your getting, the result is the Best Bang For Your Buck. Enjoy!

Smoothly functioning unit
After having resolved an issue with the "syncing" aspect of iTunes, I've had no problems loading my archived music into the unit. Specifically, it appears important to assign a name to individual tunes in the event Gracenote doesn't do so, by doing a little editing in iTunes before you attempt to "sync". I replaced the battery (a little tricky; requires a little patience with one of the "kits" available online) with a higher capacity one, and find that the battery life doesn't extend for more than a couple of hours between charges, a little disappointing. The acquisition of a Monster Cable car charger has been an improvement there. Operation and fidelity of this fourth generation unit are virtually flawless. Selection of a an individual track is relatively easy. This is a fun unit!Read full review...
