I originally Bought this ipod brand new for £289.99 from Curry's store in scunthorpe. Which included the starter pack of a charger (which plugs into a socket), Case, Silicon, Headphones. I do know for a fact they have came down in price by alot since i originally bought mine. The only trouble have ever had with mine is when it needs updating it will freeze on me. The only way i have found to un do this is my plugging it into my itunes for it to go back to normal.
The musical Genius Feature: Example: if your listening to a tune / song what you love and want to hear another track to go with it. with a few clicks, the genius feature finds another song throughout your library on your ipod classic that sounds good with the song or tune your already listening too. This feature also creates a genius playlist for you. Or you can even get more sets of customized songs when you use the new Genius Mixes feature in iTunes. Just sync your iPod classic to iTunes, and Genius automatically searches your library to create perfect mixes you’ll love.
Memory Information: This ipod gives you 160gb of storage capacity. This holds up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, 25,000 photos or any combination. You also get up to 36hours of battery life. In my opinion you can't get any better than that for an ipod. You will never run out of space for stuff on it.
Finding a song you want to listen to of your ipod or watching a film you want to watch is easy finding. Use the click wheel to brouse by album artwork with cover flow or navigate your songs and videos by playlist, artist, album, genre, song and more. You can even do specific search for titles, artists and songs plus more. Want to mix your songs up? Just click shuffle to get your tunes to come on in a random order.
Thevivid 2.5inch screen makes the videos look alive in my opinion. Purchase or rent movies, buy tv shows and download videos podcasts from the itunes store, then sync them to your ipod classic to watch anywhere you are and even anytime you want to.
Games on Ipod:
Blast through the brick game and power up.Even put your trivia skills to the test. Stack the cards in the old fashion favourite way. This ipod comes with three games:
Vortex - brick game
Iquiz - trivia game
Klondike - card game
These games are designed specifically for the click wheel interface, they put hours of fun at your fingertips. Personally myself i've spent hours on these games myself too. They do get addicitive.
You can use the sync on the photos you have in iphoto on a mac. You can even sync photos from your computer to your ipod using your itunes. You can view photo slideshows complete with music and transitions on the ipod. You can even play your photos on to a television from your ipod using an optional apple component (which is very expensive) or a composite av cable. (which i recomment about £6.99 in asda).

Overall in my opinion this ipod is the best ipod you could ever own. I've had mine for quite few years now and still only have about 1623 songs on it including 2 films which i still have most of my gb still available to use on mine. You can't go wrong with this ipod classic.
