New U2 iPod Sings Out

 

Particularly appealing if you like a red click wheel on your black iPod and you still aren't sick of U2.

Apple iPod (Fifth Generation)

 

We've looked at Creative's Zen Vision: M. Now it's the turn of the original. Is it still the best?

The latest full size iPod is thinner and lighter than ever and can play video. However, getting video onto it isn't as straightforward as it is for music and for display, TV output quality and video battery life, it lags behind Creative’s Zen Vision:...

Apple iPod 5G review

 

Make way for the champion of MP3, as the iPod 80GB flexes its newly bulked-up muscles. iPod boma ye! iPod boma ye!

Hardly a major overhaul, but the best mp3 jukebox just keeps getting better

Apple iPod 5G review

 

Video compatible feature is more of an afterthought

Ease of use ; Clean style ; Performance

4:3 screen

There's no debating the iPod's position as cultural icon and top class audio player, but its movie credentials are poor

Apple iPod Video portable media player

 

Creative's Zen Vision W, being larger-screened and chunkier, is designed for video above all other functions, but the Apple iPod Video sits elegantly on the fence. It's an oversized music player but smaller than your average full-blown portable video...

Apple's iPods rule the market for a reason. The Apple iPod Video is well up to the task of video and audio, and we are delighted with its user-friendly interface. However, if video is your thing then 2.5in of screen estate could lead to a pair of very...

Apple fifth-generation iPod

 

Given the brouhaha surrounding Apple's latest player, one might assume its name is the Video iPod. Think again: this is simply an iPod. And rather than a dedicated video player, it's really just an audio player - albeit a very good one - that can do...

As a versatile video player, it's not a good choice. But if you're looking for a player mostly for audio use plus occasional video viewing, it's perfect - and it offers better value for money than previous iPods, too.

Apple iPod

 

While the iPod may have grown up to be a cultural icon in recent years, today there's much more to it than just playing music. Apple's latest iPod is available in huge 30GB and 60GB capacities, yet remains incredibly slim and pocket-friendly. As well...

Apple iPod

 

This is the state of the art as far as iPods get. In almost all respects, this is the same as the fifth-generation iPod released in 2005, and commonly known as the iPod Video

Easy to use, Good value for money

No radio or recording, iTunes

Skimps on features, but wins on sheer quality

Apple 30Gb iPod Review

 

I already own a 1Gb Apple iPod shuffle which is great, but I wanted something extra. The shuffle is perfect for the gym, but I wanted an MP3 player that could store most, if not all, of my CD collection. I was also interested in being able to store all...

Apple iPod 30GB

 

The fifth generation of Apple's iPod is also the most stylish. It's thinner than ever and, of course, it can play video.

Looks great, Easy to use, CLickwheel a pleasure to use

Limited features, Creative's Vision:m has more to offer

Good looks, limited functions
