Re: Review: Apple 30GB Gen III iPod
Now that I've logged a couple dozen or so hours with the iPod, here's what I found:
It kicks ass.
OK, here's why. It's small, has room for most of my music, has a decent bettery life, works perfectly all the time (this was why I gave up on the 20GB Archos Multimedia Jukebox, because it didn't work worth a crap most of the time) despite some truly rough handling, sucks down data in a hurry thanks to firewire, and has nearly ideal ergonomics. Can it be improved on? Yes - the battery life could be better, the remote could be a little better, it could be made water resistant, it could (dunno how) be made smaller still. Those points aside, I think it really is the best portable music player on the market.
