Well after struggling with my “tiny” 30gb iPod for several years, I’ve finally upgraded to 160gb. The 30gb has served me well as a “jukebox” device that contains every single piece of music I have ever owned but I was getting down to my last gigabyte of music and had no room for any video clips which seems to defeat the purpose of having an iPod Video!
The 160gb is like a breath of fresh air. Once again all my albums are on there so it’s never a decision about what to take with me and what stays at home, but on top of that I can fit over a hundred full length movies or even more episodes of my favourite tv shows. I’ve also “upgraded” the quality of some songs that I had to rip at a lower quality in order to save space that was fast running out and no longer need to choose the best tracks from new albums – I can just rip the whole thing, no worries.
What a lot of people may not realise is that the iPod “Classic” name is a bit misleading because it’s far superior to the older generations in terms of the operating system and interface. Apple may have retained the look of the original iPods but the way it works is vastly improved while the prices have continued to drop.
