Apple iPod Classic second generation

CNET
14 July 2008
  • Summary: The iPod Classic refines the formula that put the iPod on the map. Few can match its combination of storage capacity, battery life, and intuitive user interface.
  • Pros: The second-generation iPod Classic adds a new Genius playlist feature to its time-tested combination of music, video, podcast, audiobook, and photo playback.
  • Cons: EQ control is limited; some older iPod video accessories may not be compatible; the plastic screen is susceptible to scratching; users are required to use the latest version of iTunes, which may not work on some older computer systems.

Apple iPod Classic (80GB) Review

Digitaltrends
12 September 2007
  • Conclusion: The Apple iPod Classic is a nice evolutionary step in iPod design aimed at previous generation owners who require more storage capacity, or new owners who don’t want to pony up premium fees for less than premium storage. Granted, the unit’s new interface changes have been well thought-out and prove welcome additions, but do require some tweaking on Apple’s end in order to make the system more responsive.
  • Pros: Huge capacity; excellent sound quality; revamped interface
  • Cons: Sluggish/balky menus; no docking station included; requires iTunes 7

Apple iPod Classic

ZDNet
25 September 2007
  • Summary: The name suggests more of the same but with more space and better value. Hard disk lag issues, video out controversy and just okay sound stop it from being a true classic though.
  • Pros: Huge storage (who really has 40,000 songs?), Good value, Anodised aluminium front feels like quality, Video and photos are bright and clear, Interface looks even slicker than ever ...
  • Cons: ... but marred by hard disk lag issues, Sound quality still, at best, mediocre, Cover Flow a case of form over function, New accessories required for video out

  • Conclusion: Although we're pretty certain that Apple will get around to fixing the hard disk lag issue in the future, it's a pretty obvious bug to overlook and mars Apple's reputation for ease-of-use and design panache. Also distressing is the video out issue, which on the face of it seems like a case of price gouging. Overall, though, the new iPod is good value at AU$349 for the 80GB unit and AU$479 for the 160GB model.
  • Pros: ... but marred by hard disk lag issues, Sound quality still, at best, mediocre, Cover Flow a case of form over function, New accessories required for video out

  • Excerpt: Der Apple Ipod Classic ist in der 80 GB Variante noch flacher und leichter als sein Vorgänger. Das flache Metallgehäuse schützt den Ipod besonders gut gegen Stöße und Kratzer. Die neueste Generation des Ipods besitzt einen Akku, der laut Hersteller bis zu 30 Stunden Musikgenuß garantieren soll. Nach bereits 1,5 Stunden ist der leere Akku des Ipod Classics wieder zu 80 Prozent aufgeladen.
  • Pros: Großes Farbdisplay, Sehr einfach zu bedienen, Sehr viel Zubehör optional erhältlich, Sehr lange Akkulaufzeit, Stabiles Metallgehäuse
  • Cons: Musikübertragung nur per Itunes, Kein Adapter für die Steckdose im Lieferumfang

iPod Classic 160 GB

Lyd & Bilde
4 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Classic er det rette navnet, for lite er nytt på siste generasjon iPod classic, bortsett fra at lagringskapasiteten har økt og Apple har lagt på prisen med en tohundrelapp. For de ekstra pengene får man 160 GB lagringsplass – 40 GB mer – på en liten 1,8-tommers harddisk. Den nærmeste iPoden er touch som med sine 64 GB til 3300 kroner koster en del mer enn classic til 2090 kroner, og har nesten bare en tredjedel av lagringskapasiteten.

  • Conclusion: L’ Apple IPod Classic è un lettore multimediale di eccezionale qualità, dotato di un hard disk interno da 120 GB, il che vuol dire che è possibile archiviare un numero praticamente infinito di canzoni, foto, video e quant’altro. Infatti, non legge solo file audio, ma anche file video e immagini, oltre a disporre di tante altre funzioni extra.
  • Pros: Supporto file audio, video e foto; Hard disk interno capiente; Funzioni extra; Batteria di lunga durata
