Im hearin alot of hate for the iPod video , the battery power isnt bad for all the features it has got , over 2 hours video playback and up to 14 hours music playback. I think the iPod shits on other Mp3 players easilly , and it easilly shits on the PSP for video and music playback , u wud have to spend around 2500 on memory cards for the PSP to match the 30GB memory of the iPod Video.

i have 60 gig ipod video and its 5 star quality. i dont know what the fuck hate would be about, but it doesnt matter because hate towards any ipod is totally irrelavent.

yeh i got the 30!!

its great, only theres a scratch on the screen which is annoying, but its ok!
i havent had anyyy problems with it. sound is amazing and if you chek the picure quality, its really good, beats many mp4 players.

downside really is that if you dont get a case soon enough, you will get bad scratches.
and oh sometimes you will realise that the battery life aint that good. sounds weird :S , but sometimes the battery runs out so quikly, without even using video etc.

but yeh, without a doubt an amazinggg thing!! i cnt imagine how the 60 could be useful :P, the 30 already is hard to fill up!!!!

I got a zen: vision m, my girl got the ipod. truth be told, the zen is better. My girl keeps stealing my shit. The ipod is great too, just the zen has more features, and you can put divx,xvid,.avi, or any torrent files straight to it. Its more of a PC friendly thing.

It has a hd lcd screen, fm radio, and a voice recorder.

A problem i'm having with the iPod right now (30gb) is that the battery life goes out so damn quick, like in an hour for video. Im thinking of using the battery replacement program but iono if its trustable or safe, what if they fuck it up or delete all your stuff or even find some shit that they find "illegal"?? iono what to do lol. BTW it was like this when i bought it off of eBay, i guess thats why it was like $250, but iono what to do with the battery.....

dont fucking get an ipod. after a few years the battery life will be non existant. trust me. apart from that they have the best functionability and intergration of all mp3 players, but they only last 4/5 year max. from my experiences anyway.

I FUCKING L*VE MY IPOD VIDEO!!! IT was always a dream of mine to get an ipod lol. When i finally got an ipod which was the IPOD Video 60 i was amazed. You can watch videos, convert ur own videos, listen to a shit load of music of course, plug it into tv sets, and all sorts of other neat shit. Just so convenient, especially if you want to carry all those wu videos on ur computer etc etcc heheheehhehehehehjeheheeheheherhwaerewhhe

I use Jodix Free iPod Video Converter. I was very surprised to find a free programm, that works perfectly fine, plus there is no watermarks automatically put after the conversion. Just Great!! Try it.

I got the 30g iPod and I really love it. The only thing I really don't like is that the battery life is very short and you absolutely need a computer to recharge it. Some will tell me there is accessory to recharge it anywhere, but it costs like 60$ to buy.
