20 gb 4th gen iPOD that I got in 2003. Still original battery and gets used every day. Would like a new color or Video one but this one still plays just fine. 3100 items on it so pretty full now.
I think that is pretty damn good reliability if you ask me. This is the only Mp3 player I have ever owned or used.
Can you really hear a noticeable diff between 192 and 256kbps Really. Why not use 320? then u will really need that 160gb drive
