Apple iPod Classic 80GB


Renewed and still one of the best players around.

Complaints about the restrictive file format support, volume level and games compatibility aside, if you're in the market for a high-capacity music and video player the iPod Classic should be high on your shortlist. Its years at the top of the MP3...

Apple iPod Classic review


What's not to like about the new 160Gb iPod Classic? Nothing, except the headphones

Vast capacity for the same money ; subtle but stylish new look ; even better sonic performance

Pathetic headphones

Carry your entire music collection in uncompressed format – with room for a few movies – and play it back in style, too

Apple iPod Classic review


Since 2001, the word ‘iPod' has loosely meant an Apple-made, hard-disk music player with a scroll wheel. But the lines have blurred. The Shuffle dropped the scroll wheel and the iPod Touch – well, that's just a law unto itself. The identity of the...

The 6G iPod is not the 6G iPod ' it's the iPod Classic. Will this aluminium-clad mega-player be able to live up to its heritage?

Amazing storage capacities. Build. Performance. Price

Sluggish operation. Slightly bulky

The 6G iPod is not the 6G iPod – it's the iPod Classic. Will this aluminium-clad mega-player be able to live up to its heritage?

Avid music fans, look no further: this is a brilliant-sounding bargain. The iPod is dead. Long live the iPod Classic

Apple iPod classic - First Look


Launched at the Beat goes on event in San Francisco and then televised around the world, Apple has announced a new iPod; the iPod classic. But should you drop everything and run out and buy one? We managed to get our hands on one at the London event in...

Metal casing, CoverFlow

No touch, no real change apart from metal casing and some software tweaks

Apple iPod Classic review


Yet another new look for the king of portables

Elegant and easy to use ; Superb value ; Simple interface

Small screen ; Format restrictive

Amazingly elegant, if restrictive, the iPod's massive capacity means it's still one of the best media players around

Apple iPod classic 80GB


For us, the newly renamed iPod classic is the quintessential iPod, and on sheer value alone, it blows every other iPod out of the water. At the per-gigabyte price of the original iPod, the 160GB model should cost an astonishing £11,168

Phenomenal value, Redesigned interface, Three bundled games, Very good audio

Must re-buy purchased games, May not work with some accessories

Apple has annoyed us with its legacy support for games and accessories, but it's still superb
