Great MP3 Player

Posted by: from Nashville, TN on 07/23/2014This is my second IPod and I have to say that they are a great investment. It is always easy to find my music in all the categories and I love that all I have to do is plug it into my computer and it automatically update.

Perfect carry entire music collection in pocket
5
Posted by: from Lisle, IL on 07/21/2014Until Apple makes a bigger iPod Touch than 64 GB this is the best choice for you! I'm a HUGE music fanatic. After buying this iPod Classic I transferred my existing iTunes library to it which amounted to a little over 10,000 songs. This is awesome because now I can have my whole music collection in my pocket to take with me everywhere! This is well worth the money if you have a large music collection, like listening to music and don't care about running apps! I'm happy to be musically set for life(or until battery dies)!

Great for music lovers
5
Posted by: from Batavia, IL on 07/18/2014I was hesitant to get this at first, but I realized I have a smart phone for most of what the alternative, i.e. the I pod Touch provides, and I would be using this I pod Classic mostly for music, audio books and podcasts. Given that, the choice was a no-brainer. It works great for what it is, and I don't have to worry about how much music I'm downloading. If you have a smartphone anyway, this is the way to go.
