Apple iPod 20GB (Click Wheel)


We have had 2 of them in the past 2 months and neither of them worked for more than 2 weeks. Now, it's frozen on one song and we cannot do anything with it. We have tried to work with the seller and have gotten one replacement, but experienced the...

Apple iPod 20GB (Click Wheel)


My ipod lasted for 1 y and 10 month. During this time the machine had to restored at least 5-10 times. Operation with XP and iTunes never worked smoothly, switching to winamp solved the problem partly. It crashed two times completely so that I had to...

Design, controls, size

Do not buy an ipod, it's a bunch of hype and you can do better with other products, cheaper and with a replaceable battery.I have 2, the other's battery life is down to 1 hours. I have replaced it also for crashing- and I mean totally fried hard drive....

When you first get it it's great, but

poor battery life, crashes constantly, i have had it for 8 months and it's no longer useable. I have replaced it once, and I'm sick of it

I love my ipod, oh well my replacement ipod. My original baby died two weeks ago without warning and was replaced within a week by Apple. The last thing it did was show a battery symbol with a ! and then nothing. It wouldn't charge or connec to a...

Intuitive interface, sleek design, variety of accessories

a battery you can't replace yourself, a poor battery indicator, prone to crashes, freezes and irritating problems

Apple iPod 20GB (Click Wheel)


I barely used this item, and began using it at work to listen to music through computer speakers. I brought it in the next week, and it would not turn on or charge. I don't normally write reviews like this, but my experience was so terrible with...

Looks good, backlighting a nice touch. Great interface

Scratches extremely easily. COMPLETELY DIED AFTER 8 MONTHS

Apple iPod 40GB (Click Wheel)


This is my second iPod. I have an original 5Gb model and have had it for 2 years. The 40Gb that I have now is faster on startup, has longer battery life and the wheel is easier to manipulate. It's slim design is perfect for carrying. I like the way it...

High quality materials, excellent design, ease of use

No longer uses standard Firewire cord, which is a little inconvenient

Apple iPod 40GB (Click Wheel)


Well constructed unlike some people I found it easy to use but feel for the money it should of included some sort of case and the remote unit.

Appears to be a solidly constructed unit with mega storage

Beware no way does the battery last for 12 hours! six if you were lucky, but don't be surprised if the indicator shows empty after 4-5 hours
