Ah the iPod classic. The first iPod ever created. Recently I had the chance to try out the sixth generation (6G) iPod classic when my friend bought it. This version is lightly thinner than the previous iPod classics that were displayed. It boasts a battery liked of up to 40 hours of music or up to 7 hours of video playback. Though I never had the patience to finish 40 hours worth of music, it lasted long enough without charging. The new iPod classic is made of a material very similar to aluminium, which means it is more durable. The silver color of the device makes it a pleasing site. It comes with an 80GB hard drive for its memory and yes, the memory erased itself when it was accidentally dropped. The interface uses a lot of album art as its display. When I tried out the music playback, I found that a lot of sounds couldn't be heard properly. The stereo was a little less better than its previous versions. When my friend and I tried connecting it to the iTunes software, it crashed and disconnected a few times while sync-ing. It also skips some tracks while playing MP3 and WAV format files. This is a good iPod but some major fixing needs to be done to make it great.
