Good: Large memory and splendid apple design
Bad: Some issues with scratching
Comment: a lovely ipod but easy to scratch up
Good: Excellent musical quality
Bad: Too new to comment
Comment: I bought this in preference to the latest 80gb Classic version of the ipod, by virtue of the far superior sound quality of the 30gb version. I listen mainly to classical music and it gives a very good sound indeed. I expect to be able to store most of my cd collection on this device. I bought it at a greatly reduced price, as they are not being produced anymore, and everyone is after the 80gb device: I was also after that device, until I had the opportunity to hear it at the Apple store in London. My own Creative Zen Micro Photo had a far better tone, but a short battery life between charges. The 30gb ipod has a slightly superior tone to the Creative. I have a 3 year guarantee with the ipod, and I know that if that doesn't produce a suitable replacement job for the battery, that cheap after market kits are available on the internet. I will undertake my own battery replacement once my warranty has expired.
Good: Clickwheel is just sick, and the sound quality thrills
Bad: No FM radio and same size screen as previous generation
Comment: All the tech-heads out there, buy this product! It reigns supreme when it comes to the high-capacity MP3 player market. Such a strong all-rounder
Good: i-tunes and functionality
Bad: the battery
Comment: If they sort the battery out and make this thing work without having to change the hard drive cause it ends up packing up after 6 months then it would get the perfect 10...until then....
