“Best electronic device I've ever owned”

Written on: 27/08/2012 by carrie76 (5 reviews written)

Usually electronics products break or become obsolete after a few years. The one item I've still got after more than 5 years is my iPod. I use it every day to play videos and the battery is surprisingly good still. It has been dropped and scratched but still works perfectly. It has encouraged me to switch to Apple computers and I will be using the company for other items too in future… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/12/2008 by glengrant (1 review written)

scroll pad is awful, library is cumbersome and user unfriendly - Itunes is awful. Too many faults to list and it is the only way of loading music onto the Ipod. Sound quality is iffy If you are the sort of person who would buy something because it looks nice, the iPod is the very fella for you, because I have nothing else good to say about it.

It has no new features compared with my Archos apart from podcasts and does everything else less well - plus the archos does loads of snazzy stuff with… Read Full Review

“I am now on my second iPod. The first one lasted 18...”

Written on: 04/02/2008 by bridgefamily (1 review written)

I am now on my second iPod. The first one lasted 18 months - un repairable - threw it away and bought a 30gb. Had this just over 12 months. There was a connection problem with it - would only work by squeezing the bottom right hand corner. Took it back to the shop in Manchester - had to make an appointment to see one of their "geniuses" I thought he was going to be able to repair it - he looked at it and told me what I already knew, that there was a loose collection. No problem he said I… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2008 by rmccoy0800 (1 review written)

I purchased an iPod nano in November 2007, sent it in for repair in December and January 5 & 15. This last time it was returned to me with missing parts and when I called to talk with them they stated it was not their fault and refused to correct their mess. I now have over $400 into this useless machine and will never purchase from Apple again… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/12/2007

It just seemed like I spent lots of time looking up the i pod online support pages. Unless you want to pay another 50 or so to have the warrenty extended for a second year, you could end up I pod less in less than 2 years. When I am forking out this much money for something, I want it to last for a few years. I had said I would never buy an I pod and I got taken in and jumped on the band wagon - I won't again… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/05/2007 by tatika (1 review written)

When it was working I could not really complain. The only annoying thing was that I had a lot of hassle with their software and some songs were louder then the other so I have to keep changing the volume, that was very inconvenient when I was on the move. When the battery died and Apple told me on their website that it cost £166 to replace it I was shocked. I bought a battery from the ipodstop.co.uk for £17 but I could not open the iPod. After reading that Apple planned to have short life-span… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/02/2007 by francisjtuk (1 review written)

Despite the bad points this is still the daddy of all mp3 players. So what if it scratches a bit - you listen to it not look at it right ??

Battery life is not that bad as its made out to be. Its very easy to get to your music and it sounds great on a system or through headphones and that is ultimately what this all about.

Look at all the others, check out the reviews, study the prices hard then ignore all of that and buy one of these - you won't regret it !!… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2006 by 00kowboi (2 reviews written)

I have to admit when the iPod came out I was a critic due to the price and fragility of the devices. But time has proved a great healer as the technology has improved and there is a great choice of second hand products on the worlds favorite online auction site e-something-or-other :-).

I was tuned as my car stereo CD player went up toes-up and i started looking at new stereos when I happened to jump in a mates car one day and he pulled out his iPod with his little iTrip griffin FM… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/11/2006 by shermanater (1 review written)

I bought this iPod for my wife as a present, but it is frustrating that all the video functions are so complicated, plus it seems that we may have to spend more money on software to convert our DVDs before we can watch them on this device. I think that overall it's more trouble than it's worth, and it has caused arguments, which is the opposite of what I wanted to happen… Read Full Review

“The iPod hard drives fail and cannot be fixed. Apple...”

Written on: 26/10/2006 by kelceylouise (1 review written)

The iPod hard drives fail and cannot be fixed. Apple will not repair hard drives, and the cost is equivalent to a new iPod. Apples do not expect hard drives to last for more than a year or so, and eventually all iPod's will break completely. Apple will not do anything to help fix your iPod unless you have Applecare, and even that covers you for only 24 months total… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/07/2006 by greenlacybra (1 review written)

My Apple iPod is wonderful! It hasn't malfunctioned, and the quality of the sound and picture it impeccable! If you don't feed your dog it will die; if you don't take care of your iPod it will break, but this machine is totally worth the investment. I had a collection of over 300 CD's, and many are scratched or ruined. There is no such problem anymore with my iPod. I think it is an investment that will hold up into the future. Thanks Apple… Read Full Review

Ipods are very undependable and extremely expensive to replace. Just go buy a new one. I just bought my daughter an mP3 for her birthday after purchasing 5 ipods, this one was an iRiver. Ipods are overrated and overpriced and not worth what you pay! We have owned enough to have a pretty accurate opinion of them!… Read Full Review
