Excerpt: Welcome to the best of both worlds. Now that iPod and iPod photo are one and the same, every white iPod boasts a full-color display--ideal for viewing album artwork and playing slideshows. Choose from 20 GB or 60 GB models and carry up to 15,000 songs or as many as 25,000 photos in your pocket. For Mac or PC.
Conclusion: Apple retains the iPod's famous ease of use and applies it well to digital photos, but with some odd limitations. If you want primarily a music player with the added ability to see and show photos, too, you'll be thrilled. But digital photographers will wish for more on-the-road-friendly features.
Pros: Color screen, photo album display, and TV output give the iPod a vibrant visual side. Navigation through albums and photos is quick and easy. TV output is excellent. Can synchronize and load new pictures automatically. Music features remain the same—which is to say excellent.
Cons: Cannot view JPEGs uploaded directly from a camera, only those loaded from a PC. Only one computer can update the photo database. Cannot zoom in or pan on photos. Album thumbnails are very small.
Conclusion: The iPod photo is an all around great performer. The sound quality is first rate, the battery performance is excellent, and the storage capacity mammoth. While the ability to make slideshows won’t appeal to every one, the color screen and higher capacity model will draw many people to this miniscule music marvel. Windows users should prepare to encounter some minor software issues, but most are well documented.
Pros: Can view color photos and album art; large storage capacity; excellent sound
Cons: iTunes for the PC is buggy; accessories may not fit this unit due to its larger size
Summary: Overall, I judge a mp3 player by its quality of music output, its ability to store and organize music in a user friendly manner, and of course its portability. The 4 th generation Apple iPod hits these marks perfectly. Although a bit pricy and fragile, it is still truly a high quality player and for those who are seeking to invest in the best mp3 player on the market, it is absolutely mandatory to take the iPod into consideration.
Excerpt: It feels like the Apple iPod has been around forever doesn't it? Did we really used to wander around with a bulky CD player tucked into our coat pockets, and needing a little bag to carry around if we wanted to listen to a choice of albums? I guess we're all pretty lucky that these...
Conclusion: Racchiude musica, audiolibri, podcast, foto, video, contatti, calendari, giochi, orari in un design più sottile del 45% rispetto al modello originale.Ci riesce con naturalezza . Con spazio in abbondanza per musica e video, questo iPod è una gioia per gli occhi e per le orecchie. Possiede anche una buona resistenza (fino a 20 ore di autonomia) e capacità (30GB o 60GB ) con un design inconfondibile (menu intuitivi e personalizzabili) e geniale (la ghiera cliccabile Apple).
Pros: Design intuitivo e fine; Supporta video e foto; Ottimo LCD
Cons: Vita della batteria povera se si guardano video; Nessuna garanzia per l’utilizzo degli iTunes; Pochi accessori nella confezione
Excerpt: Dit is nu oprecht wat men noemt een gadget; eigenlijk een apparaat wat je niet nodig hebt, maar gewoon super is om te hebben. Op dit moment is de Apple iPOD Photo 60GB het topmodel onder de iPOD\'s en eigenlijk kan gesteld worden dat het ook wel het topmodel is onder de MP3 spelers in het algemeen. Naast de gigantische opslagcapaciteit blinkt de iPOD nog steeds uit in een voortreffelijke geluidsweergave en is de bediening erg gemakkelijk en overzichtelijk.
