-Great memory/ capacity
Bad points:
-Sound can't get as loud as expected
-Audio quality out of the headphone socket could be better for a player like this, where it is aimed at the people who really dig their music and aren't bothered about apps etc

MP3 Players Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Meet a musical Genius
Say you’re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. With a few clicks, the Genius feature finds the songs in your library that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. You can listen to the playlist right away, save it for later or even refresh it and give it another go. Count on Genius to create a mix you wouldn’t have thought of yourself.

Hold everything
iPod classic gives you 160GB of storage capacity, good for up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, 25,000 photos or any combination. And you get up to 36 hours of battery life, so you can keep on rocking for a long, long time.

Leave no tune behind
With 160GB of space, iPod classic means you can always have your entire music and video library with you. Carry it from the living room to a party in the garden. Or take it on a cross-country road trip and never listen to the same song twice.

Click to enjoy
Finding exactly what you want to watch or listen to is easy. Use the Click Wheel to browse by album art with Cover Flow or navigate your songs and videos by playlist, artist, album, genre and more. You can also search for specific titles and artists. Want to mix things up? Click Shuffle Songs for a different experience every time.

Watch films and TV programmes
The vivid 2.5-inch display makes video come alive. Purchase or rent films, buy TV programmes, and download video podcasts from the iTunes Store, then sync them to your iPod classic to watch anywhere, anytime.

Play iPod games
Put hours of fun at your fingertips. iPod classic comes with three games — Vortex, iQuiz and Klondike — and you can purchase games such as Cake Mania from the iTunes Store. All iPod games are designed specifically for the iPod interface.

Share your photos
iPod classic uses iTunes to sync the photos you have in iPhoto on a Mac. You can view photo slideshows complete with music and transitions on iPod classic, or play them on a TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.
