Good: The lovely design - sleek feel and look about it. If you are image-conscious like me, or care about the seamless music sychronisation this is a must.
Bad: The poor battery life when using video or the colour display in general.
Comment: The iTunes layout and flawless podcast and playlist simplicity for example; sends the iPod Video off with no hassle for gungeing it up wth all of your music. Innovative and stylish, this is a sure-fire from Apple.
But, on a negative 'dagger'; the battery life is called poor for a real reason.
It doesn't last long enough. :(
This should definitely be analysed and improved. A worrying prospect indeed...
Overall, if you want an ingenious and beautiful gadget that you can carry around with you with pride, purchase this!
Good: Storage capacity, video/photo picture quality, battery life for audio only
Bad: Not enough bass response, battery life too short for video, scratches ARE a problem with the 5th gen
Comment: Overall I would give this a 3 had it not been for video and photo quality, which brought it up to a 4. However, there is no real point in the video feature because of the drastic decrease in battery life. Unfortunately this does not have enough bass response and in my experience (keeping it in the supplied wallet) within the first few weeks of use hairline noticeable scratches appeared over the front of the iPod and screen, which is a problem (it wouldn't have been as bad if it wasn't for the fact that it makes video viewing more annoying). Overall, don't buy this for the iPod buzz or video capabilities, buy it for the great storage capacity and good photo quality and battery life for audio ONLY, which is sufficient.
Good: The simplicity of downloading music onto it.
Bad: Poor battery life
Comment: Apple can do a little bit better by finding a solution to the battery.
