        I love music, and I like to carry it ALL around wherever I go. I don't need fancy apps to entertain myself, I just need some good tunes, and when you can carry almost half a hundred thousand around with you, that's something special. If you are like me and you are just looking for the most storage space with out needing goofy apps, this is the apple product you need.

                Comments about Apple® 160GB iPod classic® (Black):

                How did I live without this iPod 160GB!?! I have used it 8 hours a day for the last 12 days...various situations...car, alarm clock, walking, party, listening to podcasts for training and financial shows, music. I have over 3,000 songs on it with 100 podcasts and I've barely filled the hard disk. I'll use the hard disk to back up business files. Oh, and it also is storing photos of samples I have. Stunning unit. Headphones, battery-powered speakers, docked speakers, FM transistor...all of them have worked perfectly. No crashes, no freezes. GREAT product. I've donated to charity my older MP3 players from Creative and Archos.

                Dude, iPod is sweet, but the big ones freeze up sometimes. Just hold down the up button and the center button and it will work again. Don't buy a new one. It just happens sometimes.
