I was hoping some of you could help me out here.
I've been thinking about buying an iPod (or similar item) for a long time, but for the price, I'm really weary about doing so. I suppose I've heard so many good things about iPod's, that I'm curious to know the downsides of owning one, too.
Durability is my main concern. I've heard that people have accidentally snapped their iPods in half! Cracked screens, just by pulling it out of the box? I'm usually a really gentle person, hell, my SEGA Game Gear doesn't have a scratch on it, but we're talking about a pencil-thin instrument that would be used at the gym and on jogs, right? Have you guys experienced any major problems with this? Will a cover/case solve the problem?
Sound Quality - Perfect, great, good, mediocre? I'm very picky about the sound and that it be full ranged... If this thing doesn't have a deep bass, I don't want it. I can't allow myself to listen to Pink Floyd without it.
How is the interface? I want to have the freedom to play albums at a time without being bothered to click anything, but when I do have to use a menu, is it overly complicated? Can you change the fonts and colors? Is there any room for customizing?
I love the idea of having a slideshow of my favorite photos while listening to music - does anyone use this feature? How do you like it? With the screen being so small, I was wondering if you could really so much to it.
Hopefully someone can help me out.
