    I bought this to use during my workouts on the elliptical trainer at the gym, both to block out the vulgar music being played and to listen to some decent music, e.g., Mozart. Unfortunately, the controls are quite confusing, the manual that comes with the product is completely inadequate, and the documentation available at Apple's website is out of date, and somewhat confusing, as well. Furthermore, the earbuds do not stay in my ears very well, a situation I have rectified at little cost by buying different earbuds.

    On the plus side, I can store a great deal of music on it.

    [...] I have ideals on this product and how you can prevent future shocks due to it being malfunctioned. I'm not going to exchange it but show my college students that when duying these ipods of any sort to turn it off and on to check to see if you will get shocked. This could be dangerous if a child gets ahold of this eletrical conducting ipod. Other than that, these ipods, your company is creating are very helpful in a lot of ways. Thanks for reading my comment. TY

      Comments about Apple 160GB Black 7th Gen iPod Classic:

      never had songs repeated on a recent fairly long vacation drive. kids like that all their songs from the itunes library can fit w/out having to really chose what ones to leave out. its the quality you would expect from an apple product. was resistant to apple for quite a while but wife and kids wore me down and now i have one in each car and use for exercising also.

      Service and delivery comments:

      product was delivered as promised. always have received great service in this area from ABT's. Price was also $10 cheaper than any where else i looked.

          Comments about Apple 160GB Silver 7th Gen iPod Classic:

          It's really nice to have a collection of music that you know is there. Streaming music from a phone is all well and good but it's rather convenient to have my music collection on tap from a solid source that doesn't have reception issues. Music is the fabric of my life (sorry cotton)and I don't like to be separated from it. Now nothing I want to listen to isn't in my pocket.

                Comments about Apple 160GB Black 7th Gen iPod Classic:

                Bought this to convert all my cd's as wav files through I-Tunes
                Combined with a 1 terabyte HD..and you can keep all your music stored off your computer without the low quality of mp3's.

                It really holds a lot of music for little money!
