My constant companion!

By Moore5150

from Michigan

I have my iPod with me at all times. Although I am not able to put my entire music collection on here, it is very easy to add and remove albums/songs/playlists. I never thought I would be one of those guys who can't be parted from his iPod, but I am very much that guy. Love my iPod.

A better generation

By Drummerboy_911

from Richmond

Sometimes life gets boring- sitting there waiting for a bus, on an airplane, waiting for an appointment. Well wait no more or spend hours doing nothing. The solution is the Apple iPod video with 30GB! Somtimes we need music to relax or a clip of Carlos Mencia to make us laugh. With this device, our generation can spend time in a beneficial way by enjoying the latest songs or videos. I reccomend you buy an ipod! And why not? Everyone else is buying one.

Good MP3 Player

By Super Hudson

from Placerville CA

This thing holds all the songs you'll need it to and I love the video feature. If you get though, you'll want to get it a sturdy case, they aren't the sturdiest MP3 players out there, but other than that it's great.


Apple iPod Video 30GB

By stev1392

from Flint, MI

I just got this and i've had it for about two weeks and it was a great purchase! the video is surprisingly nice looking and it has great sound quality the video isnt as good as it would be on a fancy tv but for portable use its great I cant tell the difference between it and my tv. It doesnt break that easily but it scratches very easily so keep it protected so far mine only has two or three tiny scratches but unless you were looking you wont notice them if you get the black youll notice the scratches more easily so if you want the black one take good care of it!It can hold a lot of music I have my whole library of 2 and a half days on it and I still have room for at least a week or two more and i'll probably never have that much any way overall this is a great music player and I recommend it to anyone who wants a nice looking and nice playing mp3 player.


Best MP3 players on the market.

By Kramerica

from Undisclosed

The iPod was already best-of-class when this version came out. This generation of iPod adds the ability to play videos. And the video quality on these 5th generation iPods is great. I watch it much more than I ever thought I would. Now there are some nice games available that can be played on it as well. Apple's superior design and interface, thousands of third-party accessories, and seamless easy integration with iTunes are what really set these players apart from the competition.
