Im kinda curious how people are finding the new ipods - specifically the 80gb & 160 gb models.

I used the last generation I-pod and had a lot of problems with it however there doesnt seem to be much in the way of high storage mp3 players.

I find them a bit odd in terms of the menu and new Cover Flick, but I don't find anything I couldn't adapt to.

I got the 160gb model at launch and i'm thoroughly enjoying it. It was buggy as hell to begin with but the firmware has been patched regularly and it's pretty snazzy now. Admittedly Ipods are the only MP3 player i've ever had but having a look at the ones friends have used i still think ipod is the most intuitive. Plus i like the podcast management in Itunes.

Yup, no problems with my launch 160gb Classic either.

I've had the 160 since Nov. Brilliant product. Love it.

I haven't really used any of the old iPods. But they are very easy to use and very good quality.

Been using 80Gb classic since Christmas. Previously used a Creative Zen 5Gb until the headphone socket died (repaired myself but keeps breaking connections). Love the new ipod. Does everything I want. Great for when out cycling. Great for lying down chilling out. Great for around the house doing stuff. Even when its in my pocket I can click for track advance and slide finger for volume adjust without having to pull it out and look at it. The old creative's sensor slide bar was a pain to use in comparison.

Itunes may not be your flavour for music organisation but there are way to deal with that.

One odd thing though, I think the last firmware update fiddled with the volume settings - now the bottom 1/6 of the volume range seems to be the same level instead of fading out. I'm investigating this to see what's up or whether my hearing has suddenly gone funny.

The Classic isn't old per se. It's a current model iPod that simply uses a hard drive for storage, like the older models - and still has the largest available capacity.

Man... I'm starting to sound like I work for Apple <shiver...>.

I work for the company that does extended warranty repairs, after they are out of the Apple warranty, for JBHIFI/Myer's product insurer, Lumley.

The classics seem much more reliable than the 5th gens. That said, it may be the fact that they now detect water damage, so we catch people out :P
