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 iPods 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.) Dont 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 audible.com, 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.See all Product description

However, the software that comes with it really is not that good. I am very dissapointed the Apple decided to use a third party like musicmatch instead of writing their own I-Tune for PC. The interface if kind of strange and not that straight forward and after the installation, it starts whenever you turned on your computer. When I tried to go to the option tab of musicmatch hoping to disable the autostart feature, it crashed. I use XP Home and every other software works fine. Also, the ipod is not connected icon always appears on the bottom tab and there is no way to disable it.(Maybe it's tied to the musicmatch setting, but since I can't change that due to the crash, I don't reall know for sure.)
Overall, 5 star for the hardware, 2 star for the software.
If you are having battery drain problems try updating the firmware at the Apple website to the latest version 1.21 and do not set the clock on the ipod.
I also had a connection problem with my remote, Apple had a new one in my hands the next day!! Great customer service.
I did spend a long time using the ID3 tag features in Musicmatch (included with the PC iPod). You'll want to have all your ID3 tags updated, or have playlists already built before transferring music since the iPod stores the files using the tags, NOT the file names. File names are pretty irrelevant to the iPod, and it doesn't care about the folders on your PC.
I got a couple different case for it since it would scratch easily. The Action Jacket ( a neoprene case) is a little to big for this new version of the 10gig iPod, but it has a nice swivel belt clip. I also got the iGlove case without belt clip since it slides into a jacket pocket a lot easier than neoprene. Both are well designed cases.
I use a pair of Sony EX-70LP earphones with it and it sounds just great! The Apple earbuds didn't fit my ears right and the Sony's are super comfortable to me. All in all this is the coolest thing I've owned in a long time. Highly recommended!
Easy to use, pretty to look, light to handle, easy to carry, and can have thousands of songs in this little iPod!
I had used it for 2 months and never regret for this wonderful product made by APPLE Company. I relly enjoy and love it!
