In the beginning, I loved this -- I loaded about 5,000 songs and believed I had a player I could use to put all my music (and more) in one place. However, after about 6 months, I started having "issues" with it freezing up. Took it back (still under...

Plenty of space, nice peripherals

Our 19 yr old figured the entire iPod out within a couple of hours and showed the other two. I was able to borrow one while walking and even with my hearing loss the earphones worked fine. Our kids were so excited Christmas morning...and their iPods...

Great sound, easy to use

luckily, I read the reviews and purchased each teenager the cover...I'm so glad I did. I didn't like paying extra for it though

Everytime I play a song, it..... pauses by itself. It does this about five or six times before it warms up and plays normaly. For $430, I want this thing to work at top quality. Top quality is not what I payed for. especially with the limited warranty...

60 gigs of music is great, but having up to 25,000 photos is a little out of hand. Best go with the video ipod

Battery life isn't very great in the ipod. My 20 gig nomad zen lasted twice as long, but it was twice as large

I went for the top model at the time $520 thinking I was getting the best quality iPod to find that my friends 4GB mini out performs my iPod Photo by 30%+ when it comes to amplification. I don't understand why this is not stated clearly by Apple. I am...

At the end of the day, after all the iPod bashing by all the Apple haters, this is still the portable digital music player to beat. The user interface is absolutely the best. The enormous capacity (best in class for its size), vastly enhanced battery...

Size, Form Factor, User Interface, Feature set

Propritary Adapter, USB 2.0 only, 3rd party case is mandatory to avoid scratches

Apple iPod Photo 40GB

 

iPods are simply the best MP3 players out there, and owning this one confirms it for me. Apple knows how to make something simple to use yet powerful at the same time. I also purchased the Apple digital camera connector and it works GREAT with my...

Best navigation system ever, beautiful color screen, great storage capacity, great synchronization with iTunes, loads of goodies in the box, very well supported

Kinda heavy, slippery, easily scratched

Apple iPod Photo 40GB

 

I own my iPod photo for 2 months and I am very pleased with it. It is very stylish, it has a great interface (very easy to go through your songs, and 40 gigs of songs require a very good interface!) It is very resistant to shock (I dropped it on...

Good storage capacityDesignVery nice interfaceSize and weight, considering the capacity

Very easy to scratch, even on the back
