From the Manufacturer
Witness the evolution of the revolution. First it played songs. Then photos. Then podcasts. Now iPod plays video, changing the way you experience your music and more. Again.
Time for the world's best music player to take the stage for another encore. In 30 GB and 60 GB* models that hold up to 15,000** songs, full-color album art and up to 25,000 photos***, the new iPod makes the most of your music and more. Yeah, you've heard that tune before. Only now, you can watch it, too. With support for up to 150 hours**** of video and a 2.5-inch color display, the new iPod lets you take music videos and TV shows on the road.
More and Less
The new iPod boasts up to 20 hours of battery life*****, five hours more than before. Plus, you get a bigger display and one more iPod color--sleek black. But here's the kicker: At under half an inch thin, the new 30 GB iPod takes up about 45 percent less room than the original iPod. Even the new 60 GB model is 10 percent thinner than the fourth-generation 20 GB iPod. More features in less space? Sounds like iPod.
The new iPod is thinner than ever before.
Now you can put all your music in your pocket and still have room for, well, practically everything else. Catch up on your reading with audiobooks. Browse your memories with photo slideshows, complete with music. Watch video podcasts, music videos and your favorite TV shows. Consult your calendar or look up an email address. Even check the time in another city or time your fastest lap. The new iPod keeps it all close at hand.
Spin Some Tunes
The Apple Click Wheel gives you access to your entire music, photo and video library--from one thumb. Control volume and browse using the touch-sensitive surface. Play. Pause. Rewind and fast-forward. Rate your favorites. Create playlists on the go. Launch photo slideshows. The Click Wheel puts everything at your fingertips, so you can keep your eyes and ears on the music.
Sync, Look, and Listen
Playing your iPod is only half the fun. Try filling it with downloads from the iTunes Music Store. Choose from over 2 million songs, 20,000 podcasts, 2,000 music videos or your favorite ABC and Disney television shows, download them to your Mac or PC and sync them to your iPod. Add an optional audio cable to play music from the iPod to your home stereo or use an optional S-video cable with iPod to play VJ on your TV. You can perform the same big-screen feat with iPod photo slideshows. Oh, and you can do it all from across the room using the optional Universal Dock and handy new Apple remote.
* 1 GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
** Song capacity is based on four minutes per song and 128-Kbps AAC encoding.
***Photo capacity is based on iPod-viewable photos transferred from iTunes.
****Video capacity is based on 4 minutes per H.264 750-Kbps video combined with 128-Kbps audio.
*****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.

The iPod with video playback was introduced on October 13, 2005. However, one should not necessarily consider this player a video player, but a great iPod music player, with video capabilities as a fantastic bonus. Nevertheless, the iPod with video playback is the most capable and feature-rich iPod ever produced by Apple.
Video Playback - The iPod plays back H264 and MPEG4 encoded video. The iPod's new display is larger than ever at 2.5 inches, giving it a resolution of 320x240. What video content can you play on your iPod? This area is limited, at least currently. You can buy music videos on iTunes at $1.99 per song, which will play beautifully on the iPod. Furthermore, Apple has made available select television shows, for download on iTunes. They cost $1.99 per episode, for titles including ABC's hits Lost and Desperate Housewives. You can also watch the episodes you purchase on your computer. If you want to put some of your own video, onto your iPod, you will need to use an application such as QuickTime Pro to convert the video to the specific requirements to play on the iPod. You can also find video podcasts, which will play on the new iPod. Even if you do not plan to view video on the new iPod, its primary purpose is to be used as the world's best music player. You can still benefit from the beautiful new display, for it will help you find your favorite music faster, and you can view the album art that accompanies your music.
Size of new iPod - Does the picture of the new iPod make it appear larger to you? Well, it did to me. The iPod looked wider, in the photos I saw. However, it is not.Read more ›
1) Best Value of all the players!!!
For the 300 bucks retail, you can't beat it. The iPod Nano goes for around 50 bucks less, and it only has 4 Gb. The shuffle is cheap, but has no screen. And the other brands like iRiver, HP and Creative have some nice features compared to the non-video iPods, but generally have less storage, and you still don't get the video of the 5th Gen.
2) Is 300 bucks really 300 bucks - No! (you'll want accessories)
Think of the iPod as being like a cell phone. You get the phone, go to use it, and realize that all you got was the phone. No car adapter, no hands-free for driving, and no case to protect the phone. Well the iPod is no different. If you're like me, you'll get into your iPod the moment you upload your first 100 songs into it. Let's break it down...
2a) You need a computer.
This may sound silly, but a friend of mine won an iPod last month, and couldn't use it because he didn't have a computer at home. Hopefully you have a computer at home, and if you're still using Windows 98 as your operating system, either you're getting a new computer, or the iPod will get dusty.
2b) Charging the iPod.
The iPod comes with a USB cable that allows you to charge the iPod while connected to your computer. Now think...how are you gonna charge your iPod after using it on the plane, or at the beach? No home computer = dead battery. Cost of a 120VAC wall outlet charger can run around 30 bucks.
TIP - go to TJMaxx or Marshalls, and look around the accessories area for a knock-off brand home charger that could be as cheap as $13).Read more ›
Now I am not an Apple hater, I like all of the systems but I have to say that I was highly disappointed with this item, with the exception of the first three weeks. I had just taken the Ipod out of my computer from charging to leave my house. When looking at the artists, I noticed that only about half of the artists that I had on my Ipod were being shown, I ignored it. Pretty soon when I played a song, no information from the song showed up, not the song title, album, artist, or the little picture. I called Apple and one of their people put me through a few steps and told me when I was done, everything should be okay, after I was done with what I was told to do, my computer did not even respond to the Ipod. I called Amazon and was sent a replacement using one day mail (very good service, loved it). I received the new Ipod and tried to turn it on, THE REPLACEMENT DID NOT WORK, I got this little exclamation point and the Ipod did not turn on, even after hours of charging, as I was suggested to do. I was not happy receiving a replacement for a defective $300 Ipod that turned out to be defective also. Called Amazon again and was told that they would refund me fully and I could order another one if I wished, at that point, with the quality of the Ipod, returning it and getting my money back sounded good. I then found out that the Apple Store will replace any defective Ipods, I took it there and they ran tests on the replacement and gave me a new Ipod (more quality service). This Ipod appears to be working.Read more ›
