Posted by: from on 08/20/2014I've had 6 of these in a 8 year span. And every time I get close to filling it, it dies or crashes on me. I've decided to go another way.

Great for home use!

Posted by: from Chicagoland Area on 08/19/2014I have had an Ipod Nano as well as an Ipod Touch. However, I like the classic for home use primarily... I have added most of my music and pics to it and just connect it to my wireless speaker and have a banging music collection... solid for home use.

Most durable portable music player
5
Posted by: from Chico CA on 08/18/2014I've tried several MP3 players and needed one with a lot of space, easy to use, and that would not break down or just plain die. After the first four died all within six months and I tried the IPod and it worked. Not only that, my first iPod classic lasted 3 months under 5 years before it was stolen. So I purchased a second. Apple is not my favorite company due to its insistence that for me to use iTunes cards I have to give it my CC number so I have gift cards I cannot use. The iPod, however, is a very nice product and it was not too hard to get my music back. For all that I don't like the parent company, I will continue to use the iPod for my music needs simply because I like the product itself.

Lots of storage

Posted by: from Las Vegas, NV on 08/16/2014All my music and audiobooks in one small device that can fit in my purse or pocket. Can't beat the classic iPod. I just wish it had bluetooth like the others.
