Making Musical Memories

Advantagescompact, good sound quality


"...I am constantly replacing my Apple earphones as the sound always goes in one ear quite easily which is annoying for the price of them. The iPod classic is in silver and has the Apple iPod logo on the back. The way you operate the iPod is by using the click wheel which for those not used to it can be confusing but I am used to it so it is easy. You just click right and left to control volume and then click play and pause for the obvious and menu to ..." Read review

Apple 80gb Ipod

AdvantagesVery good sound quality, looks great and even has games!

DisadvantagesIpod and accessories quite pricey, but worth it!

"...a little extra sound quality, Apple have introduced some earphones which slot into the ear to eradicate any outside noise polluting the sound quality - a bit dangerous for when crossing the road, but hey they do sound great! The ipod is very easy to use as the options are clearly set out. The interface when turned on allows you access to music, photos, videos, extras, settings and also gives you the option to shuffle songs or go back to what is ..." Read review

Hello Mr IPod

AdvantagesStores practically unlimited tunes, videos or photos

DisadvantagesBattery will eventually die, Fingerprints on back

"...easily be downloaded from the Apple website for free of course so it was not too much hassle. After plugging in the iPod using the USB cable to my computer and running ITunes I then of course wanted to add multimedia to it. However one point I overlooked was files needed to be in the ITunes library before adding to the IPod you couldn't simply drag and drop from another location which is slightly difficult but can be overcome fairly quickly. Once ..." Read review

Product Information for "Apple iPod MA448FB/A 80 GB" »

Manufacturer's product description

Now that you can buy movies from the iTunes Store and sync them to your iPod, the whole world is your theater. With a 30GB or 80GB iPod in hand, those movies fit comfortably next to TV shows, new iPod games, podcasts, audiobooks, photo albums, and, of course, an entire library of music - up to 20,000 songs, in fact. How much can your pocket hold? That's up to you and your iPod. It holds up to 20,000 songs, up to 25,000 photos, and up to 100 hours of video - or any combination of each. So you can browse movies on the iTunes Store, download the ones you want (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, perhaps?), and then sync it to your iPod. Same goes for TV episodes, new iPod games, 99¢ songs, best-selling audiobooks, and an entire universe of free podcasts. Go ahead. Fill 'er up. With all that music at your fingertips, you may never want to stop listening. Lucky thing your iPod plays audio for up to 20 hours. Or, if you'd rather watch, you can feast your eyes on movies and TV shows for up to six-and-a-half hours. It might be a miracle. Otherwise, it's hard to explain exactly how 30GB of storage can fit into an iPod that's over 30% thinner than the previous fourth generation. Or how an 80GB iPod can be the same size as the 60GB model before it. However it happened, it means you can carry your entire music collection - plus a nice selection of video - absolutely everywhere you go. And a 60% brighter, more vibrant display gives your album art, photos, and video extra oomph. Finding what you want to hear among 20,000 songs could be quite a chore - unless you have an iPod. A new interface lets you search your iPod using the patented Click Wheel. And if you're a fan of live albums, classical works, or anything that sounds best when it's continuous, iPod supports gapless playback that seamlessly transitions from one song to another.
