ipod 6g really that bad?





weableandbob
I'm planning to get an ipod as a graduation gift to replace my old 1gb Sansa M240 MP3 player, but i've been looking around and there are a lot of issues with the 6g classic. Is the sound quality and click wheel really that bad?

I heard it was really a nice phone and all... here are a few reasons i wouldn't get it...
NO MMS.... it's damn smart phone... no MMS though.
it will cost more in the long run with other services and such..

If you want to be safe, take the ipod 4th or 5thG, they are good
weableandbob
can those play video, and can you still find them new?

6g?

classic you mean? ^^ (it's the same, yeah).

Well I have one and have no problems at all with it.
5G much more worse!

There are a number of articles that suggest that the sound quality is not as good on the new iPod Classic devices than previous models:

(the last URL has the most technical input on this)

Whether or not you will notice I would imagine depends on the headphones you use and they type of music you listen to. If you're not an Audiophile, I don't think the difference will be particularly noticeable, but if you're unsure you could always drop into a local Apple Store (or other shop with demonstrator models available) and try it out for yourself with your own headphones and make up your own mind.

oh my bad I am posting from it right now..I have a few apps on it
I have no complaints I do wish it had a speaker and a camera
I Am working on finding a way to send and receive text messages.
It's not bad at all
weableandbob
you can configure an ipod to work for texting? o_O

It has wifi.. and safari.. so i can browse this and reply. i have a myspace app i can message and comment and everything as if i was on a computer.
the only thing i haven't figured out is how i can text and receive messages back though.
I can send and receive messages with email.. it isn't a very good way though..
I am still looking for an application that i can use for texting.

i didn't know that the ipod classic had wifi...or safari...you thinking of the iTouch?

I found the thumb-scrolling thingy of the classic to be slower/more difficult to handle then those of the previous models.

I got one now and it works fine for me
