Yes, I have made the switch from my 5GB Zen Micro I got 2 years ago to a new Apple iPod. :p
(I probably won’t take any pictures cause I’m sure you already know how it looks like. hehe)
anyway, the color I got is black, it looks cool.. 🙂
This is the video iPod and has 30GB of total capacity. So far I have yet to use half of it but still over 5GBs.. lol and since this player can play videos, I also added some videos into the iPod.. hehe. Since I have just gotten this iPod I have yet to really see how much battery life this thing carries so I will/might update this article after I give this thing the run for its money.
the iPod came with software, an iPod carring bag, the USB data cable, the ipod itself of course, software, headphones and a dock adapter for the universal dock for ipod which unfortunantely is a seperate piece of toy you need to purchase seperately.
Since I already use iTunes, Installing this was a simple plug in and let the computer do it’s job. As soon as I opened iTunes, with the iPod connected to the USB connection, iTunes automatically synced the iPod with iTunes hence all the music that were on my iTunes playlist were automatically added to my ipod and I didn’t need to manually add the songs to my player like I had to do with the Zen Micro, same with Video. But if you ever intend non-apple supported file format to work on the ipod, you need to first convert it to apple supported video file which are
H.264 video: up to 768 Kbps, 320 x 240, 30 frames per sec., Baseline Profile up to Level 1.3 with AAC-LC up to 160 Kbps, 48 Khz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4 and .mov file formats
MPEG-4 video: up to 2.5 mbps, 480 x 480, 30 frames per sec., Simple Profile with AAC-LC up to 160 Kbps, 48 Khz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4 and .mov file formats
so you’ll need programs to convert it.
