Here is what people are saying about the Apple iPod classic 160GB (7th Generation) MC297LL/A (Black)
4 Star Rating  "Another IPOD" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Reno, NV USA
This is the second Ipod classic I've purchased. The last one survived my abuse for several years. This seventh generation has changed little but seems to be a little scittish--missing or skipping sometimes for no reason. It had to be reset once. But other MP3 players didn't have the storage capacity and the itunes program really makes life easy in spite of not being able to move files OFF of the machine.

It is very easy to use and excellent size.

The video quality is very good you can store lots of music and great price
2 Star Rating  "Not a good purchase for audio book users!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Salem, MA USA
The Ipod Classic is a great choice for music playback, however, if you intend to use it for the audio book function, think again. The audio book file system is terrible. There is only one file level which means all chapters of all your books are mixed together. When you finish listening to a chapter you have to go into the audio book file and search out the next chapter and que it up. Totally ridiculous.
5 Star Rating  "Best iPod Ever" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
After my old iPod was stolen about four years ago, I waited until quite recently to purchase a new one. During that four year gap, I basically only listened to music from my car or computer, which was a huge pain. This thing holds 40,000 songs, which is awesome because I have about 10,000 songs and I'm definitely going to be building on that as I get older (I'm only 22). I purchased this used on Amazon under warranty. I'm hoping this lasts a long time because it's just what I need. So far I haven't had any problems. I noticed that the battery power lasts WAY longer than the old versions. My old iPod wouldn't usually last a full day during high school, but this one lasted about a month before needing to be recharged. I was very impressed. I recently discovered that Apple isn't making any new classic iPods, which makes this feel so superior. I don't see the point in purchasing a nano because I would like to have ALL my songs in one place, not just a select few. The iTouch is good if you want to watch videos and stuff as well, but if you're just looking for a music player that can hold a LOT of music, this is where it's at.
1 Star Rating  "A fairy tale romance...NOT!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Brooklyn, NY, United States
This was my first purchase of an Apple product. Although, I originally was introduced to computing on a Mac (and I LOVED it), Microsoft's domination of business computer sales and software kept me from ever purchasing a Mac. I was unwilling to exist in a less than parallel software universe.

When I purchased my first MP3 player in 2005, the best reviews I read were for a Creative Zen Sleek 20 GB MP3 Player (even though, iPods were the best selling MP3 players on the market). I got five years use out of that product. It occasionally crashed and had to be rebooted, but was otherwise user friendly and trouble-free. After five years of use, my Zen Sleek got crash happy and needed replacing.

Not long ago, Consumer Reports rated the Apple iPod classic 160 GB Silver (7th Generation) NEWEST MODEL the highest for the things I care about the most (performance, durability and ease of use). So, I purchased it (last week).

The design of this iPod is as slick as hell. The thing allowed me to import album cover art from hundreds of albums at the click of a button. It's half as thick and weighs only half of what my previous MP3 did, but the hard drive is eight times larger on this new player. Very cool.

This was the end of the fairy tale.

Problems began almost immediately. Though, I was able to load my entire 40+GB collection of MP3s onto the unit in minutes, my playlists were each missing between one and 193 tracks! I read the directions carefully, consulted the Q&A Help section and eventually spoke with an Apple Technical Support representative for assistance. His advice helped me to delete "shell" duplicate tracks, but this didn't help my playlists load with any improvement. I have no idea if any part of the problem was due to my (brand new) Windows 7 Home Premium operating system. If the Technical Support Representative was aware of reports of trouble from Windows 7 users, he didn't mention it. Needless to say, I was exasperated after six days of this trouble-shooting. I returned the player to Amazon. I intend to order the Creative Labs Zen X-Fi 2 32 GB MP3 and Video Player with Touchscreen and Built-In Speaker (Black) upon receiving a refund for the iPod.

I can't figure out why these things are so popular. The desktop program is great. The portable device is maddening! The instructions walk you through what they call "Syncing your music library". What they should call it is "Selective Syncing", because that what the thing does.

My Creative Zen Sleek player did syncing the old fashioned way: flawlessly. I never had a single problem with it. It didn't reorganize my music library on the player. It copied my music library precisely as I have it organized (folders by genre, sub-folders by artist, sub-folders of albums (containing every song on the album).

The Apple iPods apparently work seamlessly for millions of people. So, I don't want to bash this product. I wish I could have gotten assistance figuring out precisely what the problem was. I didn't, so it had to go.

Unfortunately, I'm only able to rate this product with one star. :-(
