    ipod life question

    Hello, i have a question about the iPod:

    I have been thinking about buying one, but, while researching it, i came across something. You see, i found that most iPods seem to break down within about a year of life, just barely outliving the waranty. This sounds like a risk you would have to take with any electronic device, but if i'm about to spen $200 upwards on an iPod only to have it die out within a year, well, frankly thats bullshit. If i'm going to spend that much on anything, i believe that it should last at the very least 5-10 years.


    anyway, i wanted some input, so anything useful on the subject you could offer would be great. Thank you

    dont listen to that, ppl always just point out the bad things about iPods and the like. I've had mine for 2 years and its just fine. dont worry, and congrats if you get one, it'll make you happier with your music. guaranteed.

    If you aren't filthy rich, I'd still recommend scoping out the competition. Better values.

    I-pods are great products, but by now, it is just brand recognition and fashion statement that hold it in first still.

    I have a microphoto. Much better controls after you get used to it. IMO

    your the only other person i know with one! i dont have one but one of my friends does, and yes, its another good option. creatives are great too. but no matter what you do, DO NOT GET A ZUNE.

    get a nice case so that if its dropped you dont break it, and dont get a cheap crap one either, get a nice one that looks durable and has a screen cover so it wont get scratched.

    If you take care of it, it will last a while. My old one lasted between 4 and 5 years before the harddrive finally gave out, and now I have a video.


    The reason you hear a lot of cases of iPods dying is because those are the only people who complain. You don't hear about all the people like me, who work for what they have, and take good care of it, letting their Ipods have a full lifetime. A lot of people also mod their iPods, it's kind of a bad idea considering that some of the software mods can drain battery life, and ruin the file system.

    yeahh my sister has an ipod mini and she got it when it first came out (but her bf juss got her a nano so she doesnt use it anymore) i think the only problem you might have with it is the battery which i think is replaceable...you might wanna get warranty on it..i dunno i have a zune and i like that but its best if you look online and see what u want...its better to do that then listen to people say IPODS SUCK and dont back it up or ZUNES ARE HORRIBLE and some other crap lol well good luck
