Apple iPod classic (160 GB)

 

Aside from some cosmetic changes and a huge capacity upgrade, this is your father's iPod.

Tons of storage. Improved interface. "Classic" iPod controls. Easy navigation.

Cover Flow is a bit slow. Bundled earbuds aren't great.

Apple iPod Classic ( 160GB, silver)

 

Editor's note: This review has been updated to include battery life data resulting from CNET Labs' testing.

The iPod Classic is just like the fifth-generation iPod with video, only slimmer, tougher, and injected with a more visually rich graphical user interface.

Video output now requires a proprietary cable; audio quality has not improved; some older iPod video accessories may not be compatible; users are required to use the latest version of iTunes, which may not work on some older computer systems.

The iPod Classic is a refinement of the formula that put the iPod on the map. Few can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life, and advanced user interface.

iPod Classic 160GB

 

Now, this is seriously a monster of a player... with 160GB at your disposal, you can turn into a power user!

All said, if you're the type who commutes long distances and/or travel often, and want to carry all your music and movies, look no further than the 160GB iPod Classic. As of now, the warranty is global, so even gray pieces are covered. In any case the...

Apple iPod Classic 160GB review

 

Other manufacturers appear to have given up on hard disk-based MP3 players, but not Apple. The latest iPod Classic has a huge 160GB capacity, yet it's no thicker than three £1 coins thanks to its single-platter 1.8in hard disk.

It has plenty of storage and excellent battery life, but niggling audio quality issues prevent it getting an unqualified recommendation.

Apple iPod Classic 160GB

 

The iPod Classic refines the formula that put the iPod on the map. Few can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life and intuitive user interface.

Sleek, understated design ; Easy-to-use interface ; Great podcast support ; Genius feature creates new playlists for you ; Video playback is excellent ; Rated battery life is great

EQ control is limited ; Some older iPod video accessories may not be compatible ; The plastic screen is susceptible to scratching ; Users are required to use the latest version of iTunes, which may not work on some older computer systems

As the availability of high-capacity hard-drive MP3 players seems to be on the decline, we're happy to see that Apple is continuing to develop them. The iPod Classic doesn't deliver the futuristic novelty of the iPod Nano or the iPod Touch, but it is...

Apple iPod Classic 160 GB

 

Version 6 of the iPod brings a marginal evolution to the table

Huge storage space, improved interface, fast data transfer, good battery life, value for money

Click-wheel accuracy lower than previous models, bundled ear-phones could have been better, no major additions to the feature-list
