From the Manufacturer

Welcome to the best of both worlds. Now that iPod and iPod photo are one and the same, every white iPod boasts a full-color display--ideal for viewing album artwork and playing slideshows. Choose from 20 GB or 60 GB models and carry up to 15,000 songs or as many as 25,000 photos in your pocket. For Mac or PC.

Everything Sounds Better in Color
The original iPod changed the way you listen to music by putting thousands of songs in your pocket. Now it changes the way you see your music, with a crisp color screen. Browse playlists via vivid menus, thumb through album cover art, even play games and view calendars in color. Or sync photos and view them in color, anywhere. Your personal, portable entertainment library, iPod looks as good as it sounds.

Take It for a Spin
iPod incorporates the same touch-sensitive Apple Click Wheel that debuted on iPod mini. Use it to navigate your music on the iPod's 65,536-color, 220x176-pixel display. Spin the wheel to scroll effortlessly through dozens of playlists, hundreds of albums or thousands of songs and podcasts.

Or highlight photos. iPod displays 25 full-color thumbnails at a time, and you can scroll through them the same way you scroll through song titles. When you see a photo you'd like displayed all by its lonesome, just click the center button and voila. No one will have to say "cheese" as long as you have iPod around. Whether you're listening to tunes or checking out photos, you're sure to be all smiles.

Join the All-Day Hit Parade
iPod lets you play your music for up to 15 hours on a single battery charge*. Imagine: You could fly from New York to Paris and still have hours of listening time left as you stroll the Champs Elysées. While you're on the move, iPod keeps you aware of its charge level, and when it's time, iPod's quick to recharge. Plug it into your computer or a handy wall socket (via the included power adapter) and you can fast-charge iPod in as little as two hours.

Sync, Look, and Listen
The perfect companion to iPod, iTunes lets you easily build and manage your digital audio collection. Browse the built-in iTunes Music Store for more than 1 million songs, 11,000 audiobooks and 3,000 podcasts. Jazz, Pop or Hip Hop. Mystery, memoir, or thriller. Comedy, news, or politics. From reading to radio, the iTunes Music Store has it all. Download what you want, then sync everything -- including full-color album, audiobook and podcast art -- to your iPod using the included USB 2.0 or optional FireWire cable. Even your photos come along for the ride, either via iTunes or the iPod Camera Connector. Once you sync, everything appears on your iPod, so you can look or listen anytime, anywhere.

As for the CDs you already own, iTunes makes it easy to transfer your favorite songs and albums. Just pop a CD into your Mac or PC and click the Import button. You can import music in a variety of formats, such as MP3 or AAC, and at whatever quality level you'd prefer. Choose the Apple Lossless encoder for sound quality indistinguishable from a CD at about half the original file size. And with USB 2.0 and FireWire support, you can transfer the music from an entire CD to iPod in just 5 seconds or less.

* Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and the number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information.

Passionate iPod users know at least one thing about the iPod line-up, and that is they are always changing. The new full-size iPods have moved to an all-color line-up, and that is a good thing. The new 20 GB iPod with color display is 0.06 inches thicker than its 20 GB monochrome-display predecessor. However, after a little use, the small increase in size does not seem significant. Plus, the bonuses are rich.

This 20 GB iPod with color display has a battery that lasts three hours longer than the previous 20 GB with monochrome display. That brings the total to approximately 15-hours, which is great as it allows you to use your iPod longer in every day circumstances before charging, while also giving you the power needed to fly almost anywhere in the world, on a single charge. Compare this to some of the earlier iPods that had only eight hours of battery life.

What does the color screen add, for you might ask, "I'm listening to music, why a color screen?" Well, album art is one benefit. The iPod displays the album art, when playing songs, which helps create the feeling for the album. Furthermore, iTunes works with iPhoto on Mac and Adobe products on PC, in order to transfer your photo libraries to your iPod. You can then view your cherished photo libraries on the go, which might come in handy when you're telling the story of that huge fish no one seems to believe. However, the best part of iPod with color is that you can buy the optional photo adapter, plug it into the dock connector on your iPod, and transfer photographs direct from your digital camera via USB. This allows you to move potentially gigabytes of photographs to your iPod, while on vacation, freeing up the memory card in your camera. This is truly a time and money saver!

Package Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
The Apple 20 GB iPod Photo MA079LL/A was originally $300 and since its now on sale at $250, I finally bought this model after looking at various mp3 players for a year.

Now I'm a PC person and was originally afraid of compatability. I use the new iTunes 6. Apple seems to constantly update the program with new features (like improved Podcasts support) Old version is in the box on a disc, download the latest when you install your player.

At first I thought hey I want to use Real Player or Window's Media player with my ipod. But I find it helpful to keep what's on your ipod and what's on your PC in separate programs because once the tunes are on your ipod you can erase them from your PC to save space. And iTunes 6 has many functions that customize your ipod player that just arent' available in other PC based mp3 players. Then you can set it up to automatically rip CDs as soon as you put it in the drive. The ACC encoding available in iTunes and Real player sounds better with smaller files than WMAs.
I consider myself a golden ear and while no player will match a Home Theater/ Audiophile experience, I found it difficult to distinguish WAV files from the Apple codecs ACC and apple lossless using the included Ear Buds. Using my $100 earphones did sound better than the earbuds but I can't be isolated at work. The iPOD is capable of sounding better with pricier earbods. Just remember with isolation earbuds you can't hear the phone or people yelling at you!

Why buy an Ipod Photo for $250instead of Apple 30 GB iPod with Video Playback Black for $300?
The Ipod Photo is a 4th generation player, the video model is the 5th. I would go with the new Video if you focus on photos since the screen is slightly bigger.

I've waited a long time to get my Pod. When the first photo iPods came out, I felt they were too expensive and my music collection was not extensive enough to warrant purchasing one. But now that have over 1500 songs on my iTunes and a growing collection of digital photos, I couldn't resist getting this latest iPod.

Basically I like it because I'm from the Sony Walkman generation where you could only play one cassette tape at time. To be able to carry around my entire music library and photos is truly a revolution for me.

That being said, the few problems with this Pod revolve around issues of navigation. I think you have to go through too many clicks to get such functions as song rating, the back button to the current song, accessing the shuffle function for a particular playlist. I also feel that Apple should use graphic navigations that is it well know for.

That is to say, I would like to see graphic icons for the Music, Photo, Extras, and so forth.

For those of you considering buying the 20gb color iPod, I would say do so for the following reasons:

1. You' re on a tight budget, but don't want something as small as an iPod mini or Shuffle. (Keep in mind, you're going to spend about another 50 or 100 bucks buying accessories like a case, car adaptor, a dock and a memory card reader to store your photos directly from your camera.

2. If your music collection is between a 500 and two thousand songs, the Pod would be useful as you grow your collection. There's no point getting a 60gb Pod if your music collection is not large.

3. You also take lots of digital pictures.

4. This is your first Pod. Like me, this won't be the last Pod you'll get. So it makes for a good entry level MP3 (and photo) player.
