Pretty damn good.

By Tyler-l_C_g

I used to have an earlier gen ipod and upgraded to this. I was a little afraid the video feature would suck but it rocks. You can watch action filled fight scenes and stuff and get all of it. The reason it got an 8 is because of itunes. The library part is way not as cool as say windows media player and the crappy part is that apple wont let you use that stuff. No napster, no yahoo, just iTunes.


Great For Practice

The Apple iPod 30GB is amazing. I have been using it to practice different drumming techniques, tempo changes, and playing along to music that I have on it. The video player is awesome for music videos because you can see how the guitarist, drummer, etc. plays or does that special something that is hard to do. A MUST HAVE.

Its a great ipod for the cost. You cant beat it. If had a lot of other MP3 players and this is by far the best. If you love high-quality, this is for you.

Amazing. Right here you've got 30gb of storage for videos, movies, music, and games. 30 gigs?! Who seriously needs that much?! Anyway, this is an awesome piece of equipment right here for anyone on the go, anyone who loves music, or for just anyone who gets bored easily! Not to mention its super-stylish (and by that I mean it doesnt look childish or too drab). The only downside to this baby is that it scratches pretty easily (but it comes with a sleeve, so if you keep it in there it shouldn't damage as easy) and if you're a big tv show boxed-set person, the 30gb hard drive can fill up in no time at all. It has its ups and very, very, VERY small downs, but this beauty of machinery is simply the best thing I've seen in a while, even tho it is a bit pricey.


The best, for the best !!!!

The best thing that the tecnology has maybe for your music. Real simple, download, and hear...The Ipod video is a great gift to enjoy, its this little thin that has everything a musician needs for the road in any moment.

Wow, this thing is amazing. I am sitting here right now listening to Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N Roses and I'M LOVIN' IT!!! The sound quality is unmatched even by those Zen whatevers even Rios, which I just finished putting up for sale on eBay. It even has games, calenders, time, alarm, the whole nine yards. I'm just 11 and have dropped it a few times, but it still holds up. The only thing not so great about it is it has lots of fingerprints on it, and there's like no cases out for it yet. So for now you might wanna wait on it, but it's great. I also reccomend buying the USB power adapter so you don't have to plug it into your computer always. People say that the screen's too small, but it's HUGE and it's still so dang sleek and smaller than the 20 gig. It's an amazing lil' playa.
