    Ipod Help

    Ok, I have an Ipod Mini. It always breaks and it is completley USELESS. School is almost starting and the school I go to is an hour drive up and a almost 1 1/2 train ride back. I am thinking of buying a 60 GB Ipod Video. Just for that fact that it has more songs and I can watch TV episodes on their. I was wondering if any of have the Ipod video and tell me if it really worth the 300 or 400 buckaroos for it.

    Appreciate the help,

    ChiTownVike



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    I have an ipod video. I've enjoyed it alot for the time I've had it. A few things about the video though.

    1. You need to buy a case for it. You can get a clear plastic case for 20 dollars or so and that will do ya. It's just that it gets scratched up very easily.

    2. The battery runs out fast! Especially while watching videos. So if you're in the car you will want a thing that can charge the ipod while you are driving in the little cigarette thing.

    3. Maybe this is just mine but it freezes sometimes. You just have to reset it but it can get annoying after a while. I know some people haven't had the same problem.


    I think it's worth the money but you have to take those into consideration if you are buying one for yourself. I know the 60 GB has a longer battery life than the 30 which I have.

    i have the 60 gig one and its awesome. anyone that knows me knows i love mine and im closely obsessed with it lol. It's amazing at how many songs it holds at the moment i have 3857 songs in it. 4552 photos but only 29 videos, and i still have 42 gigs left. The battery life is pretty good. It usually last me 2 or 3 days before i recharge again. The videos give the battery a major juice cut but all you have to do is recharge. Mine only froze once so oh well. The case is a must like PPE said. i say its worth the money.

    My friend bought a cheap pair of speakers from like k-mart that fold out of a small box. Ten times better than the ipod ones.

    YES

    get that.

    also, listen to me very frickin carefully.

    are you listening?

    OK

    get the two year warranty with it. i know it sounds like a rip off to pay and extra 40 bucks to get the warrenty, but its worth it. my nomad broke awhile ago, it was a dinosaur, it sucked big time. but i had the warrenty, so i used store credit and basically got an updated version for free. all i had to pay for was another warrenty. and in two years, ill be able to get another updated one for basically free again.

    heed my advice!

    If you're a student, then you might wanna check out http://www.apple.com/students

    You can get discounts on apple products. I think its like 30 bucks off on the 60 gig ipod, but it's worth a look.

    I ALWAYS get the extended warranty! I got one for my car, even though it was used. They've had to put 2 transmissions in so far! Cost me the co-pay of $50.00!

    BUY THE WARRANTY!
