It also has plenty of energy (up to 40 hours of audio playback), good looks (a sleek, all-metal design), and a great personality (a brand-new interface with Cover Flow). In other words, iPod classic makes an ideal companion.

If a picture says a thousand words, think of what all the album art in your collection might say. With Cover Flow on iPod classic, you can flip through your music to find the album you want to hear. Use the Click Wheel to browse music by album cover, then select an album to flip it over and see the track list.

TV Shows
There's always something good on iPod classic. Browse thousands of episodes of your favorite TV shows on the iTunes Store, buy them for just $1.99 each, then sync them to iPod classic. Watch last night's episodes this morning, or buy a whole TV series and play a pocket-size marathon.

The iTunes Store features thousands of free video and audio podcasts, including indie favorites and offerings from such big names as ABC News, Comedy Central, ESPN, PBS, NPR, and many more. Browse and subscribe to podcasts, then sync them to your iPod classic. You can even play video podcasts on TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.

The digital shelves of the iTunes Store are stocked with thousands of audiobooks--including exclusives like the entire Harry Potter series--so you can catch up on your reading wherever iPod classic takes you. iPod classic recognizes where you left off and bookmarks your place. You can even adjust the reading speed to suit you.

Put hours of fun at your fingertips. iPod classic comes with three games--Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike--and you can download more from the iTunes Store for $4.99 each. All iPod games are designed specifically for the iPod interface. And all of them look great on the 2.5-inch color display.

iPod classic holds up to 25,000 photos you can sync from your Mac or PC via iTunes. Use the Click Wheel to scroll through photo thumbnails the same way you scroll through song titles. To see a photo full screen, click the center button. You can even view photo slideshows--complete with music and transitions--on iPod classic or on a TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.

With up to 40,000 songs on your iPod classic, you need an easy way to search your collection. A built-in search function lets you use the Click Wheel to type out the name of the song, artist, album, audiobook, or podcast you're looking for. iPod classic returns results instantly as you select letters.

Calendars, contacts, and a clock appear in the Extras menu, along with a few more handy items. Take the screen lock, for example. Spin the Click Wheel to choose a four-digit combination and protect your iPod classic from prying eyes. If you forget your combination, just reset when you sync. Or use the built-in stopwatch to log your best times.

Ok guys, I just picked up my silver iPod classic 160gb from the Apple store on Regent Street in London so I can give an actual review on it.

I've had an 80GB video iPod for a year and it's already full, so I was really hoping Apple would make an iPod big enough for me. Presently I've got 110GB (and counting) of music, so this iPod is for people like me who have a large music collection, and who like to be able to take it anyplace.

The 160GB iPod is the same size as the 80gb, but costs less than the 80GB did when it first came out.

With a brushed aluminium front finish (similar to the 2 and 3G Nanos), it should be less prone to scratching, though the back is the same smudge magnet, and I don't know how resilient the screen is. The front is curvier than that of the last 2 video iPods, with the screen slightly depressed from the rest of the casing.

Additional features are extra long battery life (40 hours for music, 7 hours for video; I've tested this and playing music non stop without much fast forwarding, etc, it's about right), and cover flow (a fun way of scrolling through for music using album cover art, though it is a bit sluggish).

The new split-screen interface lists functions to the left half of the screen, and symbols (or previews of content such as cover art, videos or photos shown as a slide show) to the right as you scroll through the functions. Neat!!

During music playback, after being idle for about 80 seconds, the screen goes gray and displays a clock, and battery power. Viewing tracks in an album also gives you, at a glance, the track times. Same for video. A nice touch. To my hearing, the sound quality (without equalizers, mind you) is improved; more bass and a bit more treble.

Be careful. I returned three of the silver 160 GB iPod classics to the Apple store for the same apparent defect. All three of the iPods I took home seized up when I began to put large amounts of music on it. The problem happened when I hit about 10 GB of music. The iPod would go to the boot up screen and freeze. It would then make this loud clicking noise while the screen light turned on and off. It continued doing this until the battery ran out of power. When I took the last one back and demanded a refund the Apple store clerk suggested that it was a faulty USB port on my lousy Windows based PC. The problem is that one of my three iPods seized up on my work laptop and the others did it on my home PC. The final clincher was when the third one seized up and I read on the Apple website similar problems from other users. I believe Apple turned out this product too soon and either there are a high percentage that are very defective or there is an inherant design flaw in the system. I love my 60 GB iPod but it is nearly full and it has never had a problem. I will probably wait for 6 to 8 months and give Apple the chance to fix the problem before trying again. I recommend if you have problems demanding a refund from Apple and returning their poorly designed product to force them to address the issues.

I picked one of these up about a week ago. Battery Life is DOUBLE what my 5G 60 GB unit has. Unfortunately in a side by side comparison sound quality has degraded significantly compared to my wonderful 2 year old fifth generation unit. I did some research and found out Apple has completely redesigned the Logic Board and is no longer using the old Wolfson Microelectronics chip. The new iPod has a dynamically compressed, tinny, metallic sound that can even be heard thru the cheap earphones provided. There is almost ZERO 3D sense of depth and imaging. The sound is so horrible compared to 5G that you can tell the difference thru every headphone tested except for Bose which has almost zero high frequency response. If someone is new to iPod and never owned a fifth generation audiophile quality unit they will probably not have a problem with the sound though.

When I first got the unit it had firmware 1.00 installed and I experienced extremely sluggish menu response. I updated to 1.01 and response is now much quicker though still not as fast as my 2 year old iPod.

Update: The latest firmware 1.03 solves the sluggish menu response problem pretty well. Too bad nothing has been done about the sound quality.

I bought the 160GB because I wanted another iPod for my car that could fit all my music. I eventually returned it to the Apple store and demanded a full refund, including the restocking fee. You can find lots of information about the iPod classic being extremely slow by googling "iPod Classic Slow". There are many threads on Apple's own support site discussing this as well, although people are claiming that Apple is not listening or trying to hide the problem by deleting posts.

Supposedly there have been some firmware updates that address some of these issues, but I have not seen the latest firmware in action because the Apple store near me has not updated the display models. My experience with version 1.01 was extremely disappointing. Very sluggish response time, and unbearable wait times/delays when plugging in and ejecting from iTunes - on the order of 8-9 minutes. For reference, my music collection is about 80GB. I have had pretty much every generation of iPod and I can honestly say that this one does not live up to the high quality standards of the previous versions. I am not even talking about the Cover Flow feature, which is indeed sluggish, but not particularly useful so I don't care about its performance. Apple seems to have forsaken a bit of their minimalist principles with this version, adding lots of superfluous album art and silly Ken Burns effects everywhere. If you think it's cool, fine - but if you think you might be distracted by it, you will. There is unfortunately no way to turn off all the random floating album art.

If you are at all particular about these kind of issues, do yourself a favor and wait till they iron out all the problems. The sluggishness will annoy you - both in the iPod and with iTunes. If you are not bothered by such things (and I wish that I was one of those people) go ahead and purchase it - the disk space is definitely worth it.
