Product Description

Product Description

Join the digital music revolution today with the award winning Apple iPod. This 10GB iPod for Windows can store up to 2,000 songs that you can carry with you in your pocket and play back with CD-quality sound. The convenient scroll wheel and intuitive interface let you find the tune you want quickly and easily. View your choices on a large, high-resolution LCD that shows up to 6 lines at a time of artists, album titles, playlists or songs. The iPod is the only portable digital music player with Auto-sync, an innovative feature that automatically downloads an entire music library into an iPod and updates it whenever you are connected iPod’s built-in FireWire port lets you download an entire CD in less than 10 seconds. Includes ear bud headphones, an Apple iPod power adapter, 20 minutes of skip protection and more than 20 equalizer settings for customized sound. Available storage capacity may vary.

The iPod is not just for Macs anymore. Windows users can now join the iPod revolution, and enjoy several exceptional new iPod features as well. The 10 GB Windows model packs 2,000 songs and a 10-hour battery life into a stunning 6.5-ounce package, and Apple ups the ante with new MusicMatch software; a redesigned, touch-sensitive scroll wheel; red-hot FireWire digital file transfers; a wired remote control; and an overhauled calendar/scheduler.

The iPod’s setup and interface are simple: just plug it into your PC and all your songs and playlists are automatically downloaded into iPod at blazing FireWire speed--typically 15 seconds or less. (FireWire is also known to PC users as i.Link and IEEE 1394.) Don’t forget that the player also doubles as a FireWire drive for applications and other files. This new model also comes with a FireWire port cover to protect the player from dirt and other gunk.

In addition to its 10 GB hard drive, iPod has a 32 MB memory cache. The cache is made of solid-state memory, meaning that it has no moving parts, so it's not affected by movement of the device. Skip protection on the iPod works by continually preloading up to 20 minutes of music into the cache.

The iPod has a large, high-quality LCD (liquid crystal display) for viewing up to six lines of text. And the LCD features an LED (light-emitting diode) backlight for clear visibility in low-light situations--indoors or outdoors. Pocket-size and just 6.5 ounces, it weighs appreciably less than the stack of CDs it can store music from.

Featuring MusicMatch software, the iPod can synchronize with newly added music files and playlists. Simply plug the iPod back into your PC and the changes are automatically updated in seconds. With MusicMatch, you can rip MP3s, create playlists, and burn custom CDs all from one simple interface. And thanks to a cool new partnership with, you can now download audiobooks to the iPod.

You can also download your calendar and schedule to the iPod from applications like Outlook and Palm Desktop. Plus, the iPod now has a built-in digital clock.

The iPod's rechargeable lithium-polymer battery is charged using the FireWire cable when connected to your PC. You can also recharge the iPod using the included FireWire cable and AC adapter when you're on the go.

The iPod supports MP3 (up to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR (variable bit rate), WAV, and AIFF files, and is firmware upgradeable. To use the iPod with your PC, you'll need a FireWire port and you must be running either Windows Me, Windows 2000, or Windows XP Home or Professional.

The unit comes with a wired remote control, revamped earbud-style headphones, a FireWire cable, power adapter, and CD-ROM with MusicMatch. It's backed by a 90-day limited warranty.

The Apple Ipod (5 GB, 10 GB, and 20 GB models) is the best MP3 player out on the market- no doubt about it. But why give only 4 stars out of 5? One reason, and its as simple as this, MONEY! The 10 GB Apple Ipod costs an amazing ... But in any case, if money is no object, then your best bet is w/ an Ipod. The Ipod offers amazing features, which some Mp3 players dont have, and fantastic quality. Basically your paying ... for the awesome quality which this little sliver box has to offer. Heres a list of the good and bad of the Apple Ipod:
+Sound Is Amazing- Crisp, Clean
+Its a Jukebox 10 GB (only though about 9.2 gb is useable)
+extras such as the calendar, contacts, and get this a game of PONG!
+Terrific Browsing- Automatically BY Artist, Album, etc.
+Customizable Playlists!
+Good Software (Windows- MusicMatch MAC-iTunes)
And the List goes on and on
+Many Different Equalizer Presets
+Uses FireWire to transfer songs-fasT! (if you own a PC you will need to buy a firewire PCI card if your computer doesn't already have one)
-very easily scratched (the second you take out the Ipod I guarantee you that you will scratch it within 2 minutes)
-cannot be dropped! fragile! (this isnt for people who need an MP3 player while doing sports and physical activites)
Beside these few minor problems, the Apple Ipod is just truly remarkable. You will not be disappointed if you buy one - its really a good investment.

Read the rest of my review for a detailed review and description of its unique features
I recently purchased the apple ipod 10gb for windows, the ipod connected to my computer which is a dell, easily with musicmatch jukebox and i have also used a program called Ephpod which works wonders in organizing your contacts, calendar and playlist functions of the ipod, in terms of sound quality, unparalled, ease of use superb, beauty great except that the case can pick up fingerprints pretty readily, but the included case and remote control are awesome and well made, problems, had one but it turned out it was my misunderstanding, apple support is much more helpful, caring and knowledgetic that their counterparts at Dell and Compaq for who i have dealt with pretty readily and often, the firewire part of the action presented me no problems because my laptop has a built in firewire port, but if you need to get a firewire card for your pc, try to get a 6-pin one that lets you charge the ipod while it is connected to your computer, like on the mac version, ...

Do I recommend to iPod, despite the price? The answer is a loud Yes. This product is wonderful. Holds more music then you may ever need. The interface is intuitive and easy to use. If you're the type that needs to read instructions before even attempting to figure things out, well guess what, even you can use this product. The sound quality is great; the size is petite and easy to put anywhere, whether it's your pants pocket or your shirt pocket. The carrying case may seem skimpy but it actually does a good job of protecting the iPod. The case is similar to the hard plastic cases for cell phones where you slide the iPod out to make any adjustments but the case stays strapped to your belt. The remote is great to, again intuitive in use and after only a use or two you'll have no problem hitting those buttons without looking.
When it comes to listening to all those songs on the iPod you have many search options such as search by song, album, and singer. Add all the playlists you want to make listening to what you want even easier. If I have any complaint, it is the shiny chrome surface which is perfect for fingerprints and smudges but after a day or so of use, you will get use to it and no longer notice.
By the way, you want the firewire card the iPod requires and the reason is simple - speed. USB would take 8-10 hours to transfer 10 gigabytes of music, firewire only takes an hour or less.
So you have this wonderful piece of Apple hardware but what about the Windows software - MusicMatch? Well, it stinks. That is putting it mildly. To add songs to your play list you first have to add songs to the MusicMatch library, no big deal there, but no instructions on how to do it either.

Trust Me-MusicMatch can ruin one's iPod experience (so many glitches, I will not even try to list them). Get XPlay right away. Don't get my review wrong-I like my iPod and use it daily and probably would not buy any other model, but for how expensive it is, I think they need to change a few other things. Please use Apple's iPod feedback website so things that are wrong with the iPod get changed (go to Apple's website and hit iPod and then hit feedback). Some issues may seem picky but if you have an iPod with 1000s of songs by 1000s of artists and use it all the time, they would greatly improve the iPod experience:
1) Apple needs a separate PC website because PC support online is basically non-existent.
2) No (audible book service) support for Windows-based users. Additionally, it looks like Apple has an updated Mac iPod Updater (1.2.1 recently came out) but not a corresponding new Windows iPod Updater and the website does not tell you that the update is not compatible with Windows. PC iPod's should have the same support and features as Mac-user iPods and it seems like there could be a divergence.
3) "SOUND CHECK" is a volume stabilizing feature on the iPod but it is not compatible with MusicMatch 7.1's "Volume Leveling" and therefore, effectively not compatible with Windows-based iPods. This is a great feature and it is wrong that it is not currently being supported in Windows.
4) Cannot add "Composer" tag (used on the iPod) through MusicMatch and other music management programs.
5) iPod's Internal Software. I have suggested many of these changes to Apple:
A) Long song, artist, and album names get cut off and some songs have the same name (happens when you have 1000s of songs), which can lead to confusion.
