Advantages and Disadvantages of Apple iPod Classic
Apple Inc. proudly presents a classy and stylish media player marketed as Apple iPod Classic. Its all-metal enclosure composed of anodized aluminum and polished stainless steel gives it a sleek and very durable look. It has a 2.5 inch display LCD screen that has a LED backlight. The pixel resolution is at 320×240. It comes in the archetypal silver or black colors. It is also very light in weight making it portable and handy. You can carry it anywhere you want to go and listen to music anywhere you want 24/7. On the other hand, its lithium ion battery life of this iPod can last up to 36 hours of music playback or an equivalent of 6 hours nonstop video playing.
The latest iPod classic with a 160GB storage capacity makes it the most capacious storage so far. It can store up to 40,000 songs and videos. All in all, it has about 200 plus hours of playing time and can store up to 25,000 photos. With its large storage capacity, you will always have easy access to good music and favorite movies anywhere you go. You can have it in the living room or to your party at your backyard. You may also take it along with you on a road trip or long travels. The Genius feature of this iPod classic allows you to create a mix of different songs. You will never have to listen to repeated songs ever again. You can also try shuffling the songs to break the monotony.
Another great feature is that you may rent movies from iTunes and watch it even if you are offline. Looking for movies you want to watch or listening to your favorite songs is within your fingertips. All you need to do is browse it in your album and you will find an array of songs and videos available in your playlist. You can also see the songs categorized according to artist, album, genre and many more. There is also an available photo viewer option and a video playback. This is all made possible because of its advanced features like playing music in different file formats (AAC, AIFF, MP3 and WAV), which makes it more advanced.
The games that come along with it are an added bonus. Built-in and readily available games are the Vortex, iQuiz and Klondike. But you can always purchase and download other games at the iTunes Store like Cake Mania.
One of the great things with Apple iPod Classic is its earth friendly design. Its display glass is free from arsenic. It is also free from Brominated Flame Retardants (BFR), and the Led backlight is mercury-free. All of these are toxic substances that are both hazardous to the environment and to our health. Both the BFR and mercury can have adverse effects on your nervous system, and is also carcinogenic. The casing or enclosure is made of recyclable material.
The caveat with the AppleiPod Classic is its memory. It is a hard drive contrary to the now popular flash drive device. It also makes a noisy sound when changing to the next music. This makes it unsuitable for vigorous activities that may cause a mechanical shock to the device. The sound quality is also not as great as the last model. It lacks depth and even sounds flat, even if you try out other speakers. The click wheel is also ultra sensitive, and this proves to be a problem sometimes. Another thing is that only a few albums show its cover art. This also does not allow you to access the internet, although you can sync all your music from either your Mac or computer.
To sum everything up, the Apple iPod Classic is popular among music enthusiasts around the world because of its portability. It also has a simple and user friendly interface. Its small size and features such as the Nike pedometer makes it ideal for workouts and even occasional drops won’t hurt its tough disposition. This product will appeal to environmentally conscious consumers.
