    2-0 out of 5 stars COMPLETE,UTTER.........
    HYPE! the ipods good, but not that good. it looks nice and thats its main selling point, but it is actually below average as an mp3 player. no fm radio or extras like that, rubbish battery life (apple seem to think that people don't want a lot of battery life to listen to their music, when the battery dies they can just stare lovingly at their ipod instead...), and when your battery finally goes completely kaput, you've got send it to apple and shell out $100. the logic in that please??????? oh yeah apple get money...but what about the customer and their music? they can wait can't they, and then they can stare at their ipod in beautiful green or whatever. EVERYONE HAS ONE THEY ARE BORING AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT THEY CAN DO YOU REALISE..not much. there are way better mp3 players out there, so my advice, ignore your friends and do a little research. only for people who like to follow the crowd and like being told whats cool e.g morons. Good luck to you if you choose to buy this. and no i'm not apple's rival company, i'm just tired of people dissing other mp3 players and saying that ipod is the best, just cos evryone has one! Enough with the sh*t!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breakthrough in digital music!
    This is by far the best MP3 player on the market. Please don't be fooled by the price. It can hold up to 5,000 songs, which is approximately 357 CD's. If you were to go out to the store and by 357 CD's, it would cost you about $4,285!!! So rethink the price. It's a good deal.

    When I first bought my iPod, I was worried that I wouldn't understand how to download and transfer the songs to the iPod. About a half and hour- fourty-five minutes after I took the iPod out of the box, I was a master at transfering songs from my CD's to the iPod. About an hour after I took it out of the box, I was downloading songs off of apple.com.

    The iPod is really simple to use. Just pick the order that you want to list your songs(by artist, alphabetical order, by album, etc) and pick the song that you want to play. Or choose randomize to play all your songs in a random order. There are also extras to the iPod like a calender and a couple of cheap games like bricks and a quiz.

    The iPod has a very neat design. It has a wheel on which you move your finger to scroll. As your finger moves around one way, the iPod scrolls down through your playlist. As your finger moves around the other way, the playlist scrolls up your your playlist. You also do that to change the volume level.

    The iPod is better than iRiver, Creative Labs, Sandisk, and Dell. As simple as that. I have listened to all of them and found that the iPod has:
    Better sound
    Is more durable
    EASIER TO USE!!!
    SO BUY AN iPOD ALREADY!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars The Software Interface from Hades
    This is my 3rd iPod 20GB unit .. won't even begin to address the problems with the first two, except to say most (not all!) problems have been related to the software.This third one works fine, except for one small detail .. every time I try to add songs from an updated iTunes, I get a message saying "...this iPod needs to be reformatted for use on your PC.Check the update button..." which then forces only one option .. a complete reformat of the unit.In other words, if I have 1000 songs loaded on the iPod and wish to add 2 more, the required protocol is to completely erase the existing 1000 songs and then upload 1002!!Again, this happens EVERY time, even if the next update attempt happens immediately after the previous one is concluded.
    What an overpriced piece of junk!Fortunately, I have 2 other MP3 players .. a Creative Zen 5 GB Micro and an iRiver 1 GB 899 flash player, both of which are outstanding and are BUTTER SMOOTH when it comes to software interfaces.My plan for this iPod is to just leave it as is and use it as a "jukebox"; i.e., just keep the same songs on there and use it as a traveling automobile player.The iPod is great as long as you already have songs loaded on it and have to connect it to your PC as little as possible.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 20 Gig Just Right!!
    The Apple iPod is a great little invention. I love the click wheel and the backlight is perfect. 20 GB of space is HUGE, capable of holding some 10,000 songs, and iTunes is relatively simple to use. However, I don't recomend buying and iTunes, because you can just download music and get music off CD's. Besides, who would pay a $1 for ONE song?!?
    I already have some 2,000 songs on my iPod and have only owned it for 5 days.

    It's great!
    Buy one...or a mini.

    3-0 out of 5 stars love - hate relationship
    Love: I got my ipod 4 months ago and have loved it dearly. I have grown very dependent on it and bought some of the accessories to go with it, it has become quite an investment. I even use it for work. It is very easy to use and I can't tell you how easy it has made carrying around my music as opposed to carrying all those CDs.
    Hate: However, a few weeks ago my ipod completely froze (remember it is 4 months old),thank goodness I bought the service plan! So, it was sent back for repair. That was 2 weeks ipod-less, very upsetting when you have a dependancy. I was happy to see it arrived back to my house after the repairs (without my music of course) so I reloaded all my music and 4 days later the exact thing happened (that was this morning so I am still fuming!).Of course, the store I bought it from could careless, thier 30 day refund/exchange plan has expired, all they will do is ship it off to who knows where for 2-3 weeks. Now that I have read all your reviews about how horrible Ipod service is, I am not expecting much from them either. So, just wanted to put a warning up to those thinking of purchasing ipod. I love it (3 stars for its ease and potiential to be great if it worked) but hate that is may still be a very unreliable product. You might want to wait to see what else comes on the market or at least shop around. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars GOOD BUT BE CAREFULL
    I have no too much to say becouse my englush SUCKS, i have this baby since 1 week ago, it's just fine, nothing new, same as any other mp3 player, just more hard drive, and more size as well, I remember gozilla prewiew SOME TIMES SIZE DOES MATTERS,,this thing is extematelly big and heavy, hard to keep on you, forget about running with it,,, also, for those that have a computer with small hard drive, you better upgrade it to a biger capacity, you will need it, becouse when you upload your music to your computer from cds or from net and you put it on your ipod you will have to keep these music always on both devices,pc and ipod, if you delete any song on your computer, or make any change, it will affect your library on ipod as well,,so, if you are having 25gb of music on your ipod you need to have at least40 gb free space on your computer, it sucks to me, doesn't it,,, well, see you later, if some one finds that Im wrong or I am using this thint the way I don't supssed to be, let me know, I may need some orientation,,, thanks,, jose_ambriz@yahoo.com

    5-0 out of 5 stars 20 GB v. 30? Go with 30
    I bought a 20 GB iPod a couple months ago and i was very sad when it was stolen. But now i bought a better, color Photo iPod and im definitely happier. The screen, while the same size, is color, and for only 50 bucks u get 10 more gigs and acolor screen. It's practically the same size so its pretty much the same. Great Price Too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cool, simple and endearing
    What do you say for one of the most popular products on the planet? You can't but fall in love with it.

    I had bought a iPod mini thinking 4GB is all that I want to store my music. With a few hours, I had used up more than 30% of the space! I decided to exchange the mini for a 20 GB iPod ($299). At the store, I saw that you get an extra 10GB and photo-storing/viewing abilities for $50 extra. I don't regret that decision.

    There are many credible reviews that compare the features of the flavors of the iPod and I am not going to do that here. This is my first impressions, much like 'Love at first sight'.

    Most of us know the iPods to be a MP3 player. The iPod Photo variety isn't as much familiar or advertised. The color screen is extra sweet compared to the B&W regulars. You can transfer your digital photo images to the iPod Photo using the same iTunes software but setting some additional options - it is pretty straight forward. The photos appears delightful on the 2 inch screen. It is a great pleasure to carry around all your photos in your pocket. Next time I visit my grandmother, she can look at all the photos I have without having to use a computer.

    The photos can be viewed as a slide show. As with the music, the photos can be displayed in a random order. Different transition effects while switching between photos makes the viewing interesting. Coolest thing is that you can connect the iPod to a TV using an optional Audio/video cable and play as background music one of your playlists.

    The color screen makes a lot of difference when you use the other features of the iPod Photo - calendar, contacts, games, etc. With 30 GB space there is plenty to store music and photos and data. I wish all iPods were compatible with earlier versions of USB ports. It comes with earphones, a firewire to USB 2.0 connector and an adapter for charging. The product description gives you a thorough description of the accompanying parts, so I won't re-describe them.

    Apart from the A/V cable, you will want to buy a sleeve for the iPod and preferably a scratch protectant for the screen as you will be using the iPod to view your photos quite a bit.

    Music and photos to carry along wherever you go - yummy! Now what can we expect more from Apple? An iPod Photo that is a cell phone too and cool like nothing else but an Apple! Just Love it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ipod 30G Photo
    I have a first generation Ipod, and decided it was time to upgrade.The ability to save photo's without a PC was key.
    the Ipod ships with a USB cable.Now, I have friends using the USB cable with no problem, but, the ipod would not recognize for me (I use a Belkin USB/firewire card).It would recognize in another PC using Usb 1.1.In looking at Apple's discussion forums, I wasn't the only one with USB issues.I went to the Apple store, picked up a Firewire cable, and it worked like a champ.I wish Apple wouldn't even bundle a cable, and let the user pick up the cable they need.I now have a USB cable that is useless for me.Other than that, this thing ROCKS!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I waited.
    I have wanted an iPod for a long time, and was planning on getting the 20gig B&W.Not that there's anything wrong withthe 20gig version, but for just a few dollars more, you can get the 30gig version.I have not put any pictures on the iPod, but its nice to know you have the capability of doing so.I apprecite the color screen, even if it is just for making the music slelection.The include iTunes software is pretty awesome.It took a little time to copy almost 300 CD's to my computer, but the iTunes interface between the computer and the iPod always updates the iPod with no hassles.I have used about 17gog, so, with the 30gig iPod, I will never have to worry about running out of space.The iPod is also very versatile.I hav an adaptor to play it through my boom box, and an adaptor to play it through my car's cassette player.It makes long drives very bearable.Finally, I like the way the iPod autmatically organizes all of your music, by artist, composer, genre, album, etc......The shuffle function, and the playlists are also great.This is one of my best purchases. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars As usual, Apple scores again
    The iPod has been an extreme success over the past two years and it seems no matter what competition comes in, Apple is still going to win.

    This is the second edition of the iPod mini. It still has the same, durable, and fashionable design, and the easy click wheel to navigate from music to the calendar to the games.

    The battery life is up to 18 hours, which is excellent. Some other MP3 players won't even last 5 hours, which is pretty lame becuase you need (or as I'm agreed with) at least 5 hours of playback.

    The sound quality is very decent. Not the best sound quality, but still has bass and clear treble to it.

    The price has been lower to $199, but still, the price seems a bit overpriced...as most 4 GB MP3 players are lower priced.

    Another big drawback is that the AC adapter and the FireWire cable is unincluded. THis means you need to pay an extra $50 for these needed accessories. Also, the iPod Mini can ONLY be used with iTunes, though, iTunes is a nice software, if you haven't used it before, re-iding your tracks will become a pain.

    Also, as most people know, all iPods are FM tuner free. This is poor because 80% of MP3 players out now have some tuner in it.

    Overall, the iPod may not have FM tuner, the decent sound, stylish design, game features, and a strong battery life to be happy about. If you really careless about a radio tuner, and have some cash on hand, the iPod Mini is a fantasic choice.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great sound at a fair price
    I got my silver 2nd generation 4gig last month. The sound quality is great and I'll end up being able to hold around 850 songs with my better quality files.

    Battery life is good-- around 15 hours with some backlight use in my experience. I wouldn't have bought a first gen mini with only 8 hours of power at most.

    A great buy if you know you'll use it a lot. If not, get a Shuffle.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good MP3 Player for Decent Price
    If you don't want to pay $299 for a regular iPod. I would go with this. It holds about 1,000 songs. I bought a silver iPod mini about a month ago. It worked perfectly. Yesterday I just exchanged it for the 20gig iPod because I wanted for room, but if you think 1,000 is enough...buy this. You won't be disappointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A teen's review
    I have to admit that I absolutely adore iPods. I have what you could call a "fetish" with them. I remember early last year, when I first saw the advertisement for the Apple 20GB model, I was almost drooling. Every time I saw a picture of an ipod on the side of a bus stop or an apple store, I would linger and wish I had one. Because the iPod is more than just a music player- it's a fashion accessory, a symbol that you're cool and up with the trends, and an amazing little piece of technology that lets you be yourself, no matter what type of music defines YOU.

    At first, the prospect of owning an iPod was a dream. I can't tell you how many people I freaked out on the street, spotting the distinctive white earbuds and staring at them 'til I lost sight. About halfway through last year, a friend of a friend signed onto MSN Messenger with the screen name, "OMG I HAVE AN IPOD!". My reaction was nothing short of overwhelming for her. I attacked her with questions, everything from "how much does it weigh?" to "does it look nice?", only to find out it was actually an iPod mini, and a PINK one at that. I was seething for a week. Guranteed way to make a teen girl jealous- tell her you have the latest piece of technology in a colour she absolutely loves.

    Towards the end of last year, the dream slowly start to take place as reality. I watched as one by one, my closest friends slowly started to fall into the iPod mini trend. The 20GB version seemed too much- it was a little too big, and only came in white- but the iPod mini was PERFECT for giggling schoolgirls. I made sure to take note of what colour everyone was buying- the agony of choice between all the pretty metallics was the hardest part of buying one. In my spare time in between school and daydreams about iPod players, I moved over my Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne cds, and began to pay a lot more attention to my dad's enormous cd collection. (Now, I have to admit, that I am the biggest 14 and a half year old Beatles fan that you have EVER seen.) My dad noticed the considerably larged-sized dent in his collection, and that was how I finally got to tell him about my love for the Apple iPod.

    Christmas came and went, I gathered cash slowly and steadily. My birthday was approaching, my father made a deal with me ("ok, you be good and i will pay for half of it"), and I realised that in late February I was really and truly going to have an IPOD MINI!

    It was surprisingly difficult to buy one- we must have gone to about seven stores until we were told that the second generation of iPod minis were about to be realeased, which was why there were no first generation iPod minis in stock. I ended up ordering an iPod mini off the Apple website, along with a Griffin FM transmittor, and recieved it delivered to my door only 3 days later.

    I figured out how to work it extremely quickly, for someone who has not even grasped the concept of the cheese grater yet. On the first day, I'd gotten about two-thirds of my beloved Beatles collection on it, as well as my still-loved Avril Lavigne. Four months later, I now have 542 songs on it (and there are more to come!).

    PROS:
    1) The battery life is very good, in comparison to the first generation of iPod minis. I listen to my iPod mini for at least 5 hours a day (straight), and it lasts me approximately 5 days until I have to charge it again. I do think it lasts longer than the advertised 18 hours, and it only takes about an hour for it to be three-quarters charged (if I don't have four hours to wait for it to be fully charged).
    2) For some reason, it's quite a bit cheaper than the previous model as well. (and I had a good reason to laugh at all my friends who went out and bought the previous models.)
    3) It's well-sealed in a gorgeous metallic case, and VERY durable indeed. I've dropped my iPod countless times (even on tiled floors), gotten the headphone cords stuck on doorknobs, had it bouncing around in my schoolbag, etc, and it still looks as new as the day I got it.
    4) It's MINUTE- about the same size as my mobile phone, with a bigger screen- and incorporates a whole heap of features into one little package. I can easily fit it into the pocket of my school uniform or my jeans, so it goes everywhere with me.
    5) Navigation is wonderful- it's so easy and so fast. The click wheel is a wonderful idea, I can go all the way from "A Day In The Life" to "Your Mother Should Know" in my Songs list in seconds. Plus, on iTunes it's so easy to organise playlists. I have a playlist of songs I listen to when I'm sad, one for when I'm happy, hyper, angry, etc....
    6) The colours on the new model are just plain cute. I chose a silver one, and don't regret my decision one bit, as it goes with every outfit, is a totally classy colour and I love buying colourful cases for it. I had a tough time choosing though, because the sweet blue and pink ones are adorable. And wherever I go, I can always be guranteed an, "Oh, wow, you have an iPod!"
    7) It's extended my love of music considerably. With my old cds, I couldn't be bothered changing cds so often. Now I can flip to any artist or genre I want so easily- and I have discovered so many new artists that I love, trying to build up my music collection, that now Simon and Garfunkel cds have replaced my Hilary Duff ones.

    CONS:
    1) I only have one complaint, and that's about the charger- you always need a computer handy if you want to charge your iPod, and that's not always possible. I recommend buying a power adaptor for wall outlets, as that's often easier and you don't have to leave your computer on for hours at a time. My family also travels a lot, and I like buying the wall-plug converters you can get at the airport for ten dollars, so my iPod will definitely work in every country.

    I've read reviews complaining about the battery life, comfort of the earbuds, etc, but have to say that I haven't had any difficulties with these issues whatsoever. Battery life will depend on how you use your iPod (don't keep the backlight on... it's a waste of battery and really unneccessary unless you're listening to it in bed :D). And with earbuds, it's personal preference- I find them very comfortable, as does my brother (who, having limited music tastes, owns an iPod shuffle) and my friends, but if they really bother you, it's a standard headphone jack and you can fit any pair into there.

    Overall, I love this thing. I take it everywhere and listen to it all the time (my parents think I'm antisocial, but I'm not really!). Apple iPods were definitely my first love.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear Lord. Ok music player.
    Ok. I just bought the silver 4GB model iPod mini. There is some good features and some bad ones.

    Pros:
    -Light and Compact.
    -Backlight
    -Easy touch pad.
    -Stores lots of songs.
    -Comes with iTunes.
    -Earphones are good, light.

    Cons:
    -Litheum battery is not good. Lied about battery life-"Up to 18 hours of music playback." But I tested this thing out and it only lasted about five hours. After five minutes, the battery bar goes down 1/4. Then after five more minutes it's halfway down. And if you have the backlight on, it doubles the battery use. I think it's a waste of money to buy a popular music player that everyone has that only lasts about 5 hours.

    -Too expencive. One hundred ninty nine dollers for a hard drive that only last five hours. I bet iPod makes a profet because it's so cheap to make them. My Sony Cd player owns the iPod mini, 53 hours of batter life.

    -Head Phones. Personally the headphones suck. They don't snug into my ears. They feel very loose. I know I said the headphones are good on my pros, because I've heard people say they fit perfectly.

    -iTunes Store. Rip off for one single song. Think about it fellows, 99 cent for one song. You could either go to the go to the library and wait for the album that contains your favorite song and add the track/tracks to your music library and update the songs on your iPod. Or for you obsessed impatiant people who can't wait, waste 12.00+ on that CD that contains your song. The only thing I like about iTunes is the free weekly single track, even they all suck, it's free and you don't have to wait.

    -------------
    Even though I'm a kid, these facts are all right except for the headphone one. Trust me, think about it before you buy an iPod. I can't believe people say "AMAZING" "SPECTACULAR PLAYER" ect...the good comments, because all out, the Apple iPod need's redoing.

    A Kid's Review

    "gamers who play psp's are probbably going to become game designers and people who play ds well become doctors."

    That is the dummest thing I have ever heard. That's all I've got to say, no comment to that except it was just stupid.

    the best system with the best game what more could you ask for.wipeout pure is aweso me because you surf the internet and the graphics are amazing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
    This product is amazing. It definitely is the best handheld on the market. I have only one complaint about it, the placement of the analog nub can make your hand cramp after 15 minutes of playing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great system!Now stop whining you picky people
    First off, the psp is the most remarkable gaming device ever. It plays movies,mp3s,and displays photos. To top it off it has ps2 grafics.All of the reviewers that gave this 1 or 2 stars want to make a dumb excuse of why it's bad.Such as:"It's boring".WHAT????????????????????????????????????? Another person said:Nintendo made video games first.Does it matter?THat's like saying Henry Ford made the first mass produced car!!!!!!!!!!!It doesn't matter.Ford isn't the best car company and nintendo isn't the best game company.Now to get on with my review.The system itself is awesome!!!!!!!!It has stereo speakers,a lcd screen,an analoge stick,and in the near future,it will have a web browser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Personaly,I think people love to complain."Boo Hoo, the case it comes with is too soft."The memory card is too small."MY PSP has a tiny little dead pixel in the corner of the screen. SO WHAT????? That's like saying:why doesn't my car come with free gas?HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!If Sony sold the PSP with no battery or accesories that it would be cheaper than the ds!The only advantage to the ds is that it comes with a free piece of plastic to touch the screen with!So make the right descision and buy this.It beats the ds by a mile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars PSP
    This is a great item for gamers like me.Also if you like movies and music, then this is a good add-on.However, a portable DVD player and agood MP3 player are the same price as the PSP.I would not reccommend buying this item for the music and movies although they are awesome quality.
    I have Spiderman2, XXX, Pirates of the Carribean, Hitch and Daddy Day Care.Soon, I will get The Grudge, Napoleon Dynamite and others which are coming out on this item.At BJ's there DVDs are $12 each so don't be fooled by the $20+ price tags at other websites.They are DVD quality, but I am not spoiled by a plasma screen TV at home, so these movies look even better than a DVD player.Sound is good also.The only complaint that I have with the movies is that in one full charge, you can't watch 2 movies without charging again.However, this is much more portable than a portable DVD player which makes up for the lack of battery life.
    The games are near PS2 quality in the graphics department, but their UMD can't hold near as much memory as the PS2 discs.There are no franchises in sports games, but season modes in nearly all sports games.The adventure games or games that involve career modes which are shorter than their PS2 origonals.However, for some reason, Tony Hawk ahs 4 more levels than the PS2 title.Weird.I am impressed with all 6 of my PSP games (THPSU2, NFL Street 2, NBA Street, MVP baseball, Twisted Metal, Wipeout Pure.)Wipeout Pure is probably the best PSP game in my opinion.I also plan to get Midnight Club III, Burnout, Gran Turismo, Madden, Stacked (suposed to be best poker game ever; also coming on PS2 and XBOX) and others when they are released later this year.
    I was skeptical about buying a memory stick for PSP but am glad I did.I bought a 256 mb for $50.I am happy because a 128mb MP3 player is $60 and can hold half as much.I can hold 70 songs even though they say only 64 songs.The sound is awesome and battery lasts for nearly 15 hours with the sound on high and the screen off.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great concept but there are stability issues
    The 128 and 256 meg seems to work better and be more stable than the larger formats. I've been having troubles with the 1024 and 512 being recognized by devices.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A lot of memory in a small package.
    I bought the SanDisk 1 GB card for my Kodak 5 megapixel camera.The 32 megs that come in the camera left me with a full memory, so I wanted more. It arrived quickly and installed easily.I'm amazed at how small a gig of memory is these days.My Kodak Dx7590 camera says that it has room for 632 pictures at the 5 megapixel maximum setting.At the 1.8 megapixel setting it says that I can shoot 1,554 pictures before running out of memory.Either of those is way more than I've had a chance to use before returning home and downloading them to my PC.

    I got the 1gb after comparing all the smaller ones.I did think about buying two or four smaller SD cards instead of the larger one.Now I'm glad to have the whole gig of memory instead of two or three smaller ones.I don't have to carry the extras cards and open the camera in rain or dust.

    I did some comparison shopping on e-bay and elsewhere and found that the Amazon price, including shipping, was equal or less and it wasn't from some vendor I've never heard of.If you have a camera or other product that takes the SD cards, the price is hard to beat and the convenience of a lot of memory is very nice.As the old computer pros say, "you can never have too much memory."

    4-0 out of 5 stars good card 16x
    got three for 96 from dell on a price mistake.great cards, not very fast but good for my use in a RAVE-MP 256 player.I checked the speed on this, it is 16x, good enough for most uses.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works well
    I have two of these. Both have worked well for about 3 months.Sandisk is the brand since they are for co-inventor of this standard.

    Worked fine for one month, it is now unrecognizable by all devices I have tried it in.Lost data.I have read similar reports about other Sandisk SD cards. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!!!!
    Ok, I bought my iPod mini 6gb (Pink)to hold my favorite songs to listen to on the go, in the car, etc. I cannot stress enough how much fun this amazing little thing has been. This is the best thing I have ever spent my money on.

    iTunes is incredibly easy to use. I was able to easily convert my songs from Windows Media Player over to Apple's iTunes with no problems. Just make sure you go to the Tools Option in the task bar on Windows Media Player, then to Options and then to the Copy tab and turn off the Copy Protect music (for all you Windows Media Users). Windows, by default, automatically protects your music to keep you from being able to use other formats.

    I have around 1200 songs loaded on my iPod and still have a little over 1 gb left. I like to keep it in the shuffle mode to mix up music and listen to things I have not heard in a long time. I am actually purchasing my husband one for his birthday/Father's Day because he loves mine so much. He owns an iPod shuffle, but would prefer a mini.

    The iPod mini seems sturdier than my 20gb iPod. I use a case for it occasionally. It has yet, knock on wood, to be scratched. It works superbly and right now I am getting over 24 hours on one battery charge. I find my iPod mini impossible to live without. I take it everywhere and use it for hours every day. It comes in handy when you have to wait in long lines or shopping alone, etc. I also use it in the car with the Belkin TuneBase FM modulator for the iPod mini. It works well and holds the iPod in a slot so it does not slide around the car and get scratched. It also works as a charger.

    I feel you will not be disappointed with this purchase. It can be pricey for some people, but it will be well worth it in the long run. If you have a really large music collection, I recommend buying a 20, 30 or 60 gb iPod. But, if you have a smaller collection, or only want your favorite songs in one place, the iPod mini is perfect. I know most people eventually own two. A large one for the entire collection and the mini to hold your workout, driving, etc. playlists. So, good luck and have fun with it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awsomelittle gadget
    I just got a silver ipod mini for my 13th b-day, and it is way cool! I was going to get an ipod shuffle, but I am so glad I went with the mini. I was frusterated at first, because I couldn't figure out how to transfer songs onto it. However, my mom finally figured it out. It sounds great! I did not use the headphones that came with it, 'cause they didn't seem very good. It can fit in my pocket, and I don't have to worry about getting to many songs on it. Way to go, Apple!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product
    The iPod mini is a wonderful invention - thank you Apple.I'm a Windows user, so when Mac came out with the Windows version of iTunes, it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.The iPod mini is the best music product on the market for people who only have time to list to 1000+ songs - you never get through them all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars practical and easy to use
    let's put it this way, if you want to store all your music in your ipod ( and when i say all your music, i mean ALL), thenthis ipod mini is not for you, 'cause as you guys know, this ipod mini only holds up to 1,500 songs (6gb). Now,that's a lot of songs if you ask me, that's an entire week of music, i love classic rock and i filled my ipod mini with all of my favorite songs, you know how cool it is for me to take this everytime i go to the beach or if i'm having some company, i can just press shuffle and enjoy without the hassle of getting up everytime, you know to change cd's??, so if you're looking for something that's not that expensive and just want to have a good time and easy to use then i recomend this little item!! Respeta a un varon!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding MP3 player.
    I began looking into an iPod purchase over a year ago, and was almost sold on the 4th generation iPod.I liked the colors of the mini and was okay with 4 GB of storage (though that was a tad on the small side), but the main thing that deterred me from the mini was the less-than-desirable 8-10 hour battery life.

    Then the 2nd generation mini was released.Apple seemed to fix and improve every little thing I had held against the original.They made the colors brighter, increased the hard drive space to 6 gigs, and most importantly, at least to me, increased the battery life two-fold.

    The 18 hours that Apple advertises is EXTREMELY conservative.If you're content listening to music and don't need the backlight for more than a minute or two every hour, the battery can run for about 24-25 hours.I can go a week and not have to worry about recharging my battery.I could listen every waking moment of my day and never have to stop and recharge before I went to bed.It's a wonderful thing.

    The blue is very bright and pleasing to the eye--I've seen the pink and silver versions and they too are visually appeasing.6 gigs is nothing to shake a stick at--on the contrary, I've found that 6 gigs is just about the perfect size for someone who has a vast number of interests musically but doesn't have thousands upon thousands of CD's to rip and upload.Unless you have literally hundreds of CD's in your collection that you plan on putting on your iPod, I'd recommend the mini, since you'd more than likely end up with half the space on your regular iPod sitting unused.

    Despite the fact that the iPod scratches easily, there are several cases which work extremely well...I'm partial to the ones made by Power Support, though you have to import them from Japan.Uploading your songs is quick and easy.Navigating the menus takes about 15 minutes to master.There's really nothing more I can say that can do the iPod mini justice.

    I will make a quick note and add that I'm not an Apple fanatic.I think that Apples are good computers, but I'm still attached to my PCs.However, when it comes to MP3 players, there's really no comparison; it's going to take many many years before Microsoft or any other competing company can put out any MP3 player nearly as nice as the 2nd generation iPod mini.

    Also, if you have a friend that's a teacher in a school, look into the education discount on the Apple website.It ends up being 20 or 30 dollars off. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's about the iPod, not the reviewer...
    Just ignore the simpleton from June 12, 2005 who talked about the iPod charger being incompatible with overseas 220v.Like your laptop, all you need is a cheap adaptor and plug it into the wall socket.There's absolutely no risk of damaging a US spec iPod if you travel outside the country - I`ve done it plenty of times.On the other hand, taking your iPod on vacation without your charger is a tad foolish - hardly Apple's fault!

    I'm often discouraged to see people who post reviews on Amazon that are more to do with their own shortcomings rather than the product itself.The 60GB Photo is my 2nd iPod.Yes it's a little expensive, but I use it daily and find it to be a first rate MP3 player.

    2-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars for quality and -1 star for design = 2 stars
    The Ipod is great only when you are being around your house or the car. What about people, who are going camping, or flying overseas (the charger is not compatible with 220V) The battery is not removable!!!

    I went on vacation and forgot my charger. Boy was I disappointed especially finding out that I didn't charge the unit before I left.

    Apple did not make the battery removable at least I could buy an extra one, like Treo 650 a cell phone and MP3 player.
    After a year or two the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced with the new one by sending the unit to Apple. Is Apple moving back to 30 years old technology???
    I am sure that a lot of people thinking about it, but they are still buying Ipods because of the marketing and good sound of the unit.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Unacceptible
    My music collection spans well over 5000 songs, very close to 6000. The ID3 tags in my collection are an utter mess.Some songs are from Japan and their ID3 tags have the original kanji for their title/artist/album.Some of the artist tags are mispelled, which makes an extra entry in the artist list which makes lists longer and finding specific songs harder.Some songs just don't have any tags in the artist/album field at all.

    For a library as large as mine, I use a broad genre>artist>album nested format, which means I never have to look at more than 50 choices at a time and I can use any folder manipulation to make broad changes instead of having to find id3 tag editors and correcting each and every file.Unfortunately, I have to abandon all of this and spend countless hours fixing all 3000 or so incorrect tags if I want to get any usefulness out of my ipod. Singles, normally stored away in their own folder just for such, instead add an extra entry to the artist or album lists just for one or two songs.

    To add icing on the cake, there doesn't seem to be any meaningful manipulation of the music library possible with the ipod itself.If you messed up a playlist, you're stuck with it until you can get to a computer.There's an "on the go" playlist that can be built with the ipod itself, but that's about the extent of its usefulness.

    It'd otherwise be a nice, stylish and compact player, but there's no way to make use of 60 gigs with an interface this clunky.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Great iPod .....but
    I bought my iPod Photo 60GB last week and it gave me a lot of problems from the start. I charged the battery for over 5 hrs until fully charged and 5 mins later the ipod was telling me to charge again saying the battery was empty.I got a new replacement within 3 days and charge the battery to full.The next day I was listening to my ipod for almost 2hrs & 15 mins and the battery icon was down to red meaning the battery was almost empty.This didn't make me happy at all when the ipod was suppose to last anywhere from 12-15 hrs.I will return the 2nd ipod I got from Amazon.Too bad....I really wanted to keep it, but with the battery trouble....I'm returning it.

    The iPod shuffle is a great little MP3 player.First I must say I have the iPod mini (which I think is by far the best MP3 player around), but I use my friends' iPod shuffles a lot.I must say for some people buying the iPod shuffle is a great use of their money, but for others it is a total waste of money.The iPod shuffle is for you if you:
    -like the shuffle mode
    -want to listen to it when you work out
    -like to listen to whole CD's, no skipping songs
    -don't mind not having a display
    The iPod shuffle is NOT for you if you
    -want to always have total control of what song is played yet
    -will put more than 50 songs on your iPod shuffle
    -want to put audio books on the iPod shuffle
    -mind not having a display
    One way to see if you will like the iPod shuffle is play a CD on shuffle mode.I hope this review was helpfull for you!


    3-0 out of 5 stars Ipod, The Cheap Way
    MP3 players have really come in a long way since they were so popular a few years ago. It seems like everybody wants to buy one of these agdgets. but the prices are just too steep for just so many to afford. Apple definitely has known what it is like. With the mammoth success of the Ipod MP3 players, many people who want those MP3 players get them anyway they can. Although it has been a great ordeal, many just want a little more convience in the price, and also the size. Most of the Ipods are about the size of a walkman. Well, there is one that could be better, but is a good value for those who want the MP3 craze of their own.

    Apple's Ipod Shuffle, is a more compact size MP3 player who want not just the convience, but the price as well. The device can hold as many as 100 different songs that can be downloaded from the internet, or burned to the computer from compact discs. The device is a little trickier to operate and is a little more of a hassle. One reason, is that it has a very short battery life. Only 12 hours of musical playback, where other MP3 players like Rio or Sony can have their devices with double, and possible triple the length of battery life. Another disadvantage is there is no LCD display. Unlike the other Ipods that show what is playing on the Ipod, this one makes it seem like a mystery to others who want to just guess on what the song is on the player.

    All in all, the Apple Ipod shuffle isn't really all what is said it was cracked up to be. For those who want the MP3 craze, I honestly suggest you pass this one up, and consider with the Ipod Mini, or another MP3 player. This one is shuffled out of tune.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ITS AWSOME!
    I bought this today (6/13/05) AND ITS SWEET! im 14 and its perfect for stuednts that r on the run and cant take a cd palyer everywhere... love your music? same here! its skip free and its smaller than a pack of 35 cents worth of juicy fruit! its soo cool and im amazen that the 200.00 ipod mini only has 25 mins worht of skip protection, but the 100.00 is skip free! its soo amazing

    1-0 out of 5 stars Shame on you Apple!
    This piece of crap REQUIRES iTunes to load the music on it. If you don't use iTunes the iPod will not work.

    Good design and nice looking but I regret my purchase because I don't want to feel limited in any way.

    Also, sound with the included headphones isn't good.

    Buy a Creative Zen instead (or anything else)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased!
    What an awesome little device!I love it!It does exactly what it is advertised to do.I can't believe how great the sound is and how SMALL this thing is....3.5" x 1" x 3/8".It truly is the size of a pack of gum.It is so light too...probably weighs one ounce.

    I completely filled mine up with songs and it does hold about 120.It is easy to use and if you have basic computer skills, you will find it very easy to figure out how to transfer songs to it.The only negative I have experienced is that the ear buds are rather uncomfortable...they are very hard plastic and they hurt your ears after awhile.The little soft removable foam covers that came with it don't stay on and they don't make a big difference in comfort anyway.

    But otherwise...I just love it - especially for the price!Great design, great sound, great price and tiny as can be. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Speed
    It has worked great with my Nikon D70. I fully recommend this card after owning 5 CF cards of 5 different companies, including Lexar, Canon-branded, and SimpleTech.

    This is a great card and I would purchase it again.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Must Keep the Camera On to Save Images
    I've known and happily used SanDisk CF cards before, high quality, good price.This Ultra II card comes with some worries.Since CF doesn't write at 9MB/sec, it uses a "buffer" to write a small amount (like 4 megs) to an ultra-fast buffer, then the image is slowly transferred to the main card.And there's the problem.

    I lost every "last image" on my trip to Italy.When I powered on the camera, took say 5 pictures, it would record 4 and lose the last image.This is because I was turning the camera off after taking the 5th picture.I needed to leave the camera on another 20 seconds to be sure the memory card finished transfer of the images.So it's very fast, for a small burst of pictures, but LEAVE THE CAMERA ON.I did a lot of "that's cool!" pictures... you turn the camera on, take a picture, turn the camera off to save battery life.Mistake.Make sure you REVIEW the images (and not just the temporary image displayed after the picture is taken) before POWERING DOWN.

    5-0 out of 5 stars First CF Card
    I got lucky! After purchasing a Rebel XT, I wanted a CF card that was roomy and priced right. AT the time and place, the Sandisk Ultra II 1GB was the ticket. I was not well versed with the different write/read speads of different CF cards. The Rebel XT specs indicate 3 FPS up to 14 pictures. In high resolution JPEG mode (no RAW), my rebel XT never stopped to wait for an image to be written to the Ultra II CF card. I'm guessing I could've held the shutter release and kept on going 'til the card was full.

    Take the time to read the other reviews by individuals who've done their research and are more experienced. I'm convinced based on personal experience and reading about others' and will continue to purchase additional Sandisk Ultra II 1GB CF cards. Right now I need more batteries!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Card speed vs camera buffer dump speeds.
    I've done a little research trying to find the best cf card for my Canon Digital Rebel XT.Scandisk has a new series of cards called Ultra III, with 20mb/sec speeds.Just because the card is fast can my camera take advantage of the speed?In my case not really.My camera dumps at about 6MB/Sec with most of the faster cards.I currently have the Lexar 80x 2Gig card, and have not had many problems other than a corrupt file every 1000 shots or so.My Canon does not take advantage of Lexars Write Acceleration, but I didn't find out until searching for another card.Here is a link to the test results I found.http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/multi_page.asp?cid=6007 .

    5-0 out of 5 stars A solid performer.A must for the digital photographer.
    One of the great things about the digital age is that the cost per megabyte of memory storage is in continuous decline.Here, we can all reap the advantage of this technological bounty--the SanDisk 1GB Ultra II CF card is a really nice product.I can use it in either my Nikon D100 or my Canon S50 (compact) cameras, and take hundreds of pictures before downloading the card to my laptop computer.

    The card is very fast, so much so that the write speed simply is not noticeable most of the time (when it is that is more an issue of my D100's slow write time for RAW photos than it is with the Ultra II).Owning the Ultra II has really made digital photography a pleasure; typically I can shoot all day without having to worry about switching CF cards or emptying the contents of the card to the laptop.This is digital photography as it was meant to be.

    A solid product that performs very well. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
    I bought my first Ipod for my wife birthday gift and was stunning with the amazing exclusive shape of the product. I can say this product has been well manufactured. It is really beautiful & looks expensive. Mine comes with craddle, power adapter, A/V cables, firewire cable & usb2 cable (60GB Ipod Photo,1st edition). Great deal for $389(shipped).I don't think this product different than the 2nd generation ipod photo. the only different is the packages that comes with ipod (much better on 1st generation) & the ipod firmware. The firmware itself is upgradeable and very easy to do it. You can store all photos, songs, even you can use this machine as portable hard drive to store any type of files. Some review said this machine can only be used for 1 computer only and I found this is not true. you just have to play with it for a while. Simply Great product & worth of penny!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A proud owners testimony
    There are a lot of great reviews on this post, describing the functionality, pros and cons, etc., that I won't be repetitive. I've decided to share my personal testimony on the 60.

    I've been on the fence with the entire iPod series since it's introduction. It wasn't until 2/05 when I finally took the hit with the 20 gig iPod.Once getting it home and syncing the unit to my Apple G4 (via iTunes), I began uploading all my CDs until I realized that I was starting to get the fever for what the iPod was beginning to do . . . CHANGE MY LIFE and the way I would listening to MUSIC forever.

    I slept on it for that initial night and I couldn't help but to realize that 20 gigs wouldn't be enough for what I was getting myself into.Instantly I packed up my 20 gig iPod and headed for the apple store for a quick return and upgrade to its big sibling 60 gig iPod photo.As I hinted before, I was that consumer that despised forking out $300 for the 20 gig but once I understood what meaning and functionality these units would play into my needs . . . it wasn't no thing to pay the difference on the upgrade to the 60 gig.The expression on the sales associate when he said to me "Oh, it didn't work out for you . . ." and I replied, "Well it actually did but . . . I NEED MORE SPACE", "Give me the biggest iPod you have"!!! What an expression he had, quite funny.

    At that time I paid $599, but with the current price reduction this creates a whole new temptation for those of you who haven't acquired one yet!

    I use my iPod for various applications and its versatility is amazing.It's my jogging partner, my continuous music playing at home, my business sidekick when I take music business meetings.That's the coolest part because prior to the iPod, I've always had tons of CDs and artist pictures/promos in my attaché case.Now before I walk into an executive's office I will brief them that I will bring my iPod Photo to display songs, tracks, and pictures . . . and they're happy to say just plug in and let's hear what you have and let's see the pictures of artist I'm producing or managing.
    With the iPod Photo being a hard drive, I've had the ability to transfer and backup Pro Tools sessions and omit providing several DVD-Rs to the engineer.

    Along side my activity in music business, I also play in several bands.With the iPod on my hip, I've taking last minute gigs as a substitute that I wasn't quite sure of the music and will listen to the tunes with one ear bud in on stage, or listen to recorded practices.I've played piano for many open mic nights and I can't list how many people who asked me do I know this song or that . . . I simply say to them "I have my iPod and that album, let me listen to it real quick".Very nifty!

    I haven't showcased to my family yet, but I'm looking forward to this year's gatherings to display our family pictures via connecting my iPod to granny's television. Showing pictures (in slideshow format) archived on my iPod I have the option to play some of my family's favorite tunes simultaneously.


    I can go on and on with how my iPod fits into my daily regiment but I'll end with this last note.The iPod and iTunes has provided a way for me to continue studying music history, for instant I've purchased more music CDs or downloaded music in the iTunes music store.Sometimes we hear something on the radio we're not familiar with or forgot about one of those songs we adored as a youngster.I believe I have to tools to research and collect the music I enjoy or even an artist I haven't tapped into yet . . . I can import their selections on my iPod and listen to it in any environment to become accustomed to their music.

    I'm a proud owner of the 60 GB iPod photo and I'm currently at 10,000 songs.The moment I max out the 60 (probably in a few months) I hope Apple release a 100 GB iPod.If not I'll just purchase another 60.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great deal
    When Apple first released this 60gb ipod it was $599. They came out w/ a newer model 60gb for $449 but they striped out about $70 in accessories (dock, some cables, etc) This deal is for the old $599 release marked to $399 - its a great bargain on a great ipod.

    very happy w/ my purchase. This is the 2nd ipod i've bought, and both times amazon has had the best deal.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is it, folks
    This is the best MP3 player on the market. 60GB of storage for your MP3s and data files? How can you go wrong. Add to this the color screen and you have a player that is unmatched. Personally, I don't care for carrying photos, the color screen and size are all I'm after. I originally purchased the 30GB model and decided that this fit my needs better. I carry about 20 or so music albums and a ton of personal and professional development audio on my 60GB. As the previous reviewer stated, do yourself a favor and get a case the moment you get this. Another essential item to purchase with this is the Griffin iTrip FM transmitter (also available on Amazon).

    5-0 out of 5 stars 60GB is just the ticket!
    I just got my new 60GB iPod Photo (soon to be renamed iPod color so I am told) and I must say that I am absolutely ecstatic about this thing. Sure its a few millimeters thicker than the 30GB but for the extra capacity you will be far happier with this one, trust me!

    My only gripe is that the boffins at Apple didn't think to put a protective screen film on as they have with the click wheel. Get a protective case the moment you open this thing (preferably before you open it!) as it marks-up really easily. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but overpriced
    First I would like to say that I am not an expert on speakers. I am just someone who loves listening to all kinds of music.

    The SoundDock from Bose actually delivers pretty good sound for its size. I like listening to music at high (but not extremelly high) volumes, and it performs quite well. Once in a while I do hear some distortion. But anyway, it handles bedrooms and small rooms easily. For larger spaces it lacks the punch delivered by larger speakers and subwoofers.

    If size is not crucial for you, you are probably better off with cheaper but larger speakers.

    I am satisfied with my purchase. If it costed a little less (200-249) I would have given it 5 stars.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Expensive but good sound
    Many of the Ipod based system do not deliver on the sounds. The sound on this system is very good and much better then the other systems. That being said the other ipod systems are geared to be mobil. This system requires that you plug it in and does not have a battery option. I knew this before purchasing the unit so I have no complaints on the unit.This system is super easy to to install and get going.

    The only reason that do not get this unit 5 stars is because of the remote control. The remote works fine, but only has forwards/backwards plus stop/play with volume control. It would be nice to be able to select multiple playlist without having to get up and change it on the ipod.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW GREAT MACHINE
    It took me a couple of weeks to decide if I wanted to buy this. With all of the different reveiws of it. Well let me tell you I am so happy that I did. IT SOUNDS GREAT. It fills the whole apt. The sound is strong and clear.This is the best you can buy for external speakers for you ipos. It sounds just like a stereo. I am so totaly happy with it

    1-0 out of 5 stars Overpriced GARBAGE!
    My mother gave me one of these for my birthday and as much as I love her, I was really disappointed.See, I am not an audiophile but I have had a fair bit of experience with good audio because I used to work in a small audio store, and in the audio industry is full of little dittys about Bose: "BOSE=Buy Other Sound Equipment" or "Bose blows" or "No highs, no lows, it must be Bose."I am not saying you have to go out and buy a $5,000 system to get good sound, but only that you can get far better sound for half the price that Bose will gouge you for...they are NOTORIOUSLY bad, the only thing they have going for them is massive and relentless advertising campaigns, and cute compact little designs.

    So I plug in this Sound-Crock thing, and jump out of my skin...never in my life have I heard MP3 sound so bad!!!This is exactly what a lot of doomsayers were warning about when MP3 first came out, that its musical quality would be horrible.It was simply unlistenable!

    Well, I plan on eBaying this thing as soon as a few months pass and my Mom forgets that she gave it to me.Maybe I'll just tell her that my dog ate it or something...but then I'd have to kill my dog, and I don't want to do that.So maybe an irate girlfriend smashed it to pieces, yeah Mom will like to hear about that drama, she loves soap operas as I suspect that most Bose-buyers probably do which explains their buying disasters.

    Anyway right now I have my iPod plugged into my Aiwa AWP-ZX7 boombox and for just two hundred dollars it blows this THREE hundred dollar Bose hunka-junk clear out of the water!I highly recommend you do the same, a boombox is also far more versatile, can play normal CDs, radio and cassette, plus way better sound quality.

    Oh, I forgot...it's not as cutesy as this little Bose.GAG!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible sound!
    I ordered the Soundock online and received it within 5 days.It is unbelievably easy to set-up - just plug in the adapter for your size iPod, plug in and enjoy!The sound from the notebook sized speaker is amazing!The remote doesn't have a ton of functions available, but I find it's not really needed.Overall, I would definitely purchase again and am considering a second unit to keep at the office.Excellent sound quality! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars PSP & Sandisk Products
    To answer the other comment/reviewer, a PSP is the Sony Playstation Portable.They were released here in the USA in March 2005.It was released in Japan late 2004.Not sure about the rest of the world.The PSP uses memory stick duo media for a variety of purposes, most noteably video, music, and game data.

    As far as the product, Sandisk products have been great and I've never seen any compatibility issues with Sandisk versus Sony media, so go for the best price.However, if you have a digital camera that supports high speed transfers, you might want to get the Red Sony High Speed since it supports that high speed transfers.To my knowledge, only Sony, not Sandisk, makes the high speed transfer version.However, from what I understand for PSP usage, you do not need the high speed; although, you can use the high speed in a PSP from what I've read.It could make transfers using a card reader quicker even if not the actual accesses with the PSP.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I'm about to buy it but still unsure....
    Sorry , this is not a review but rather a question and not even about the product itself....
    Most reviewer talk about how good the Sandisk 1Giga Pro Duo works in their PSP.....
    Not being an American and not knowing all the techno lingo , please , can anyone tell me what a PSP is ...? ( something to do with the Play Station..?? )
    I just bought the Sony DSC T 33 today and as I'm going on a wild trip very soon I need to buy enough memory so I can shoot all the pics I want. This 1 Giga Memory Stick Pro Duo has the best
    price-MB relation , the 1 Giga Sony Red Memo Stick Pro Duo I want is not available and heaven knows when it will be .... So....
    Lexar has no 1 Giga , so there's no big choice....
    Either Sandisk for U$ 119.88 or the Sony for US 367.00 or so.....
    Well... anyone can still tell me what a PSP is...? I'm going to buy this Sandisk Memo Stick right now.....

    5-0 out of 5 stars No PSP should be without it.
    This is just the thing you need to get the most out of your PSP. I already have quite a few videos and mp3's on my1GB PSP memory stick pro duo and their is still room for more! It's worth every penny. The 512MB is around 80 bucks, so fo just 40 more dollars save some cash and get twice the size. You won't regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, recommend to everyone
    It's the perfect stick. It's the same as the special "Yellow" one, but it's cheaper, and comes with an adapter. You have to use the adapter with most memory card readers, since they don't usually read the memory stick duo sized chips. But I've put it into 3 seperate readers, and they all worked. I have not tried this chip in my digital camera which takes Memory Stick Pro media (the larger one) but Sony says it should work.

    A previous reviewers said it was incompatible, but Sony says it will work in any device which supports Memory Stick Pro or Memory Stick Pro Duo. It is incompatible with Memory Stick devices (without the Pro or Duo in their names).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works great!!
    Despite what the other review says i have had no problems transfering data using my built in card reader in my Sony Vaio.Good price, comes with the Standard Memory Stick adapter.Works great with PSP. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Snaps to you, Apple
    This shuffle ROCKS!!I have been an iPod owner from the very early days of this wonderful age of music-on-the go.I only wish I had gone with my gut and invested big in Apple when I bought my first iPod.

    The shuffle is special and I would recommend it highly to anyone who travels and/or exercises.Its portability and (lack of) weight is truly liberating.Above all is the random thrill of what's next.I really don't need a display because I spend time every 3-4 weeks to download an eclectic mix of tidbits (8 hours at 192 bits per second on the 1 gig'er).Switch to random and turn sound check on (which levels the sound levels across songs) and enjoy the surprise of what will be next.

    Although the earbuds are very good, if you are doing any quantity of listening and don't care about be sociable - consider upgrading the earphones, as this stick will push better headphones very nicely.Though it is a matter of personal preference, I recommend the Etymotic ER-6i cans.They are (a little) pricey and slightly awkward to insert, but you'll be walking through an airport with a secret that 99.9% of the Type-A's will not fully understand.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for exercising, but beware of sweat...
    I've had my Shuffle for about 2 months, and I wouldn't want to exercise without it.It's very lightweight, and very inobtrusive.It holds more than enough songs to keep me happy for at least a week without hearing the same song.

    As far as some of the complaints regarding the lack of a screen, I couldn't care less about not having a screen.Since I use this while exercising, it is not important to me to know the name of the song I'm listening to.The selling point for me was the size and weight, and the lack of a screen is a plus for me.It would be similar to me complaining how much I love my new RollerBlades, but that they are lousy for my morning commute on the highway.To me, having a screen or 4GB is not necessary for the Shuffle to serve its purpose.

    That all being said, you will need to take precaution if you work out strenuously, as the Shuffle will fry if it gets wet from too much sweat.I originally purchased the Ipod Armband along with the Shuffle, but I fried two Shuffles.I have since bought another "waterproof" armband that encloses the Shuffle, and that is working fine.On a positive note, the Apple store has been absolutely great about replacing my previous shuffles with new ones they had in stock.Great service from the Apple store.

    If you are looking for a small, lightweight music player for exercising, I would highly recommend the Shuffle.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect little device for big music
    Okay, I just had to get this little thing.Suffice it to say, that I have had at least 5 different mp3 type players.. and they were all at least good, some were frustrating, but good.Some better than others...

    BUT!!!

    If you prefer an Mp3 player that does NOT have confusing menu's .. useless menu's, or menu's that just seem to be outright dumb and nonsensicle... some menu items and screens are there I feel, for self serving promo reasons (with our mp3 player you get 10 thousand menu options!!! -who cares)... but with this device, it is all about the music.

    All of the menu options (and no silly screen to tell you the name of the songs that you put on the player..) you will use.Volume up and Volume down.Previous song, or in case one stinks, Next song.A little sliding device in the back so you can have either shuffle, or not shuffle.So, what else does a human need?NONE MORE FOR ME PLEASE.

    I bought the gig version to get the max out of it, and I am presently listening to u2 right now.

    I found it funny that when I Auto filled the shuffle, the first song it played was u2.Ha.

    O, yes.The iTunes software is quite good.You can autofill from your library, or you can make a playlist of whatever you want, and have the default fill from that .... quite nice.

    easy.

    Have fun.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ITunes suck, but you don't need it.
    The player is great. I never used iTunes, but as far as I'm concerned I'll nerver have to. I hated my previous sony mp3 player because the softwere had, just like iTunes, a lot of copyright bouls***t.
    When I won my shuffle as a gift, I was really supicios that I would have the same problems with iTunes. I use win98 and, as a music fan, I love winamp: it's light, fast, practical... THE FACT IS: SHUFFLE WORKS IN WINAMP AND WIN98. All you gotta do is download the win98 driver and the winamp plugin. And the best part is, it works great! All you gotta do is select the songs you want form the library, right-click and "send to ipod" (winamp is the greatest!!!) It's realible, doesn't have any copyright bouls***t and its fast. I use standard usb, and it takes about 15 min to upload 1GB.

    The ipod itself is great.
    + : Practical, cool, very very light, no unnecessery cables, fine sound quality.
    - : None.

    Waht I think about the lack of display:
    Some people think the lack of display is due economical factors. In my opinion it was a desing decision. Ipod shuffle is the best looking mp3 player on the market and a display would compromise significantly its looks. As a music fan, I know the name of all my songs, so i don't need a dyspaly to inform me that. The problem of finding a specific song can be solved by loading your songs in alphabetical order.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
    I needed something that would allow me to listen to music at the gym (since I workout 6 days/week). I looked at the other options, the Shuffle fit the bill. I was originally going to get the 512mb version but opted for the 1gb model since it's not much more.

    Pros:
    -This thing is tiny, not much bigger than the USB thumb drives I use.
    -No moving parts means no skipping while I'm on the treadmill.
    -Very easy to use and install (took several minutes). The shuffle I purchased needed an update to Itunes, which was a quick download.
    -Ready to use out of the box. Includes the Shuffle, headphones, 2 sets of pads, some Apple stickers, manual, CD all in a very bright green box.

    Cons:
    -Small enough so you don't know it's there, gotta be careful not to sit on it.

    A lot of folks seem to be concerted about the lack of a screen. If I'm working out I don't need a screen. No reason to complain about lack of a screen if you look at it and see THERE IS NO SCREEN. Buy one of the other models if you need a screen.

    When you register it you'll be required to enter the serial number. It's located on the Ipod itself and is tiny but it is also on the bottom of the box next to the barcodes and is much easier to read. I've seen (on other sites) people complaining about the side of the serial number on the unit. You now know that it is on the box. :)

    After you install it it will need to charge, so don't plan on using it immediately. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars smaller and better!
    if you dont have a playstation 2 and thought about buying one , so i suggest you buy the smaller one ! yes , there are two types of playstation 2, big one and small one , but the small one is much better! first of all, it's much smaller (75% smaller then the other one )and it's also more portable. it's about the size of a very thin book. you can hold it in one hand! also , another thing is , it has a built in network adaptor to play online game , so you dont have to buy one of those because it's already built in ! so, like i said , if you thought about buying a playstation 2 , buy this kind !

    4-0 out of 5 stars Definitely a way to escape from PC gaming
    Okay, first things first:

    PC games have better graphics, more special effects, and in some ways are easier to play with a mouse.

    However, the cost of keeping a high-end PC is becoming increasingly prohibitive, with new video cards coming out almost every six months, $500 or more for the top end and $250 for the mid-range.Not to mention new processors, the ever required more Ram, and now multiple hard drives since all the motherboard manufacturers are pushing RAID.The result is a very fast PC that costs over $1,000, is current for a year at most, eats up enough electricity to power a small house, and that's before you get to the driver/soundcard issues.

    The last PC game I played was Medal of Honor, Pacific Assault, which kept dropping me back to the desktop for no reason.The support message said to kill all the services except the essential ones.Fine, but a great way to muck everything else up.I've never had 5.1 sound cards that produced really good sound like they advertise, and everytime they update the video card drivers something else goes out.

    Or I can spend ~$150-$160 on this and snag a television that takes composite input.In may case I got a nifty 14 inch RCA flat screen or under $100.Only accessory is a memory card, and that's it.Just plug it in and go.

    My first PS2 game was Medal of Honor, Rising Sun, which actually share parts of some scenes with Pacific Assault.The graphics aren't as good as current PC games, I'd put them about a little better than Deus Ex or No One Lives Forever.The character movements and facial expressions are as good as current PC games.Textures are definitely much more plain, and I don't know if any PS2 games support raytracing and realtime shadows.However, the lighting and smoke effects look better--there's something to be said for standardized hardware.

    I'm amazed something the size of a large CD case works as well as it does, and the PS2 has the largest game library of any console.As something to keep going until the PS3 comes out this is great.And from the demos I've seen the PS3 will be as good as or surpass PC games.

    The only downside to the PS2 for me is the gamepad is very hard to get used to, especially for precision shooting or navigating.I wish whoever had decided the pad was a good idea would have had the common sense to put a trackball on it, or just gave us a mouse.Anyways, I'm happy wit the PS2 and my billfold isn't going to be as drained as it was playing PC games.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sony PSTwo: The Best Home Video Game System!!!
    Hardware:

    The New Sony PS2 (PSTwo) does most of what the old PS2 did.
    Just like the old PS2, the new PSTwo plays PS1 games, PS2 games, Music CD's, and DVD movies. However the new PS2 has been "trimmed" down drastically. It weighs nearly half of what the old PS2 weighed. Also the new PStwo has built-in Ethernet and Dial-Up ports so you don't have to buy the Network Adaptor. 2 USB ports are also built into the system (like the old PS2).
    The IR receiver is also built into the console for the DVD remote sold seperately.

    Games:

    I used to own an Xbox and the games were horrible because the majority of the games are shooters and sports games. However the PS2 does not have that problem. The PS2 has a huge selection of games from RPG's to Simulation to Action Adventure and more. For starters, I recommend the Greatest Hits games. These are usually the best games available for the system, and they're under $20. Here's a list of my favorite games:

    - Gran Turismo 3
    - Kingdom Hearts
    - Final Fantasy X
    - DBZ Budokai 1-3
    - ATV Offroad Fury Series

    Accessories:

    The New PSTwo uses most of the accessories the old PS2 used. However here's a list of accessories that are not compatable with the new PSTwo:

    - Old PS2 Multitap (Sony made a new PS2 multitap exclusively for the Slim PStwo.)
    - PS2 HDD (Hard Disk Drive) (SORRY FINAL FANTASY XI FANS.)
    - Playstation Multitap

    Summary:

    This is the best home console ever made. However if you like to use the PS2 Hard Drive, get the old PS2. If not, get this one.


    2-0 out of 5 stars I was a fan of you
    Sony, i was a fan of your ps2. but now for some reason you sold a lot of your great games to microsoft xbox. Maybe you're going out of buisness or something who knows. Sony sold their entire grand theft auto series to xbox, and their max payne series to xbox. So now xbox has grand theft auto, max payne plus halo and halo 2 and half life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars kool
    ok the slim ps2 is better than the bigger one obviously. The slim one dosent have a slide out thing 2 put the disk in but its not like that really matters.I have nintendo 64,ps1,ps2,
    X-box,nintendo DS,psp and soon to come the ps3 and X-box 360.If you cant deside wether to get an X-box or ps2.Get an X-box!
    X-box has WAY better graphics. But by now dont because they got new 1's comin out the X-box 360 and the ps3. The ps3 is gonna b
    $500 and the 360 is gonna b $300. I would go with the 360 cause its cheaper and the graphics r going to b better.(they r supossed to b lifelike.)And the ps3 they r using a different connection.I mean whats the point if WI-FI is working great whats the point of changing the connection?I know this is supposed to b about the ps2 but i can do what i want.4 those who just skimmed down to the end just relize that all these systems r pretty kool. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Digital Image 10 Suite not compatible
    For months I have been using Digital Image 10 to scan thousands of photos. It's a great program. I used HP6110 to do the scanning. Smooth.

    I bought the Canon 760 to be able to scan slides and film. It does that job well.

    My problem is that when scanning photos, using Digital Image 10, only 1/4 of the photo was scanned.

    I tried working outside of the Automatic mode and got my entire photo scanned on a white sheet with my photo in the upper left corner.

    I am disappointed that when I brought this problem to Canon they told me to go to Microsoft.

    Make sure your photo software works with the Canon 760.

    5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful AIO
    I'm not sure what happened to the price, but I got this on Amazon for $186 on May 26, '05.It was a bargain, free shipping, no tax!So I bought it.I couldn't be happier with my purchase.It scans negatives, slides, anything!As far as I can see, the quality is great.On the printing side, it is also superb quality, both photo prints and regular documents.Don't forget to use Canon photo paper for your photos!Also, buy your ink cartridges on amazon, with the free shipping.It is great that each color has its own cartridge, so you just have to replace the one that is out, instead of replacing all the colors.Also, one thing you can't see in the photos is that if that front door is closed (where the prints come out from), it will open up automatically (slowly, and silently) right before printing begins.It is like some kind of futuristic printing/scanning/copying machine.By the way, it is pretty big, so make sure you have space for this baby.The dimensions are correct on amazon, BUT the actual footprint is smaller.It is approximately 14"x17"!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some points not covered by others.
    Let me start by saying my previous printer was an HP 540 bought ten years ago and I do not own a digital camera nor a scanner.

    So why did I buy it? Because of the good reviews I have seen for the Pixma family, because people complaining about how the new HP printer family software installation is a bear, and complaints about Epson print heads clog if not used both here and on usenet. I bought it for home, and I have only needed to fax about twice in the last ten years, but I (we?) often need to copy, and I wanted a color printer, separate print cartridges, two paper trays. I hemmed and hawed and decided to pay the extra to get the MP760 features over the sheet feeder of the MP750. A digital camera will probably be next electronics purchase.

    First some notes
    - Another website said this printer has a parallel port. It does not. Not a big deal.
    - It works over USB 1.1. Not as fast, but if you are like me and would rather put the money for a USB 2.0 card into a new PC, you are not out of luck. You do need a USB OS. I am using XP Pro.
    - You do not need the PC turned on to copy or print pictures from memory cards OR from negatives or slides! But, when printing from negatives it will NOT let you print to plain paper. I don't know about scanning then printing, I would have to try it out.
    - The slide and negative holders are stored in the underside of the scanner lid. When you unsnap this carrier it exposes a white strip that appears to be a light source for scanning negatives or slides.
    - The memory slots come up as removable disk drive under XP, one does not have to use them for just digital picture files. Its a nice feature for me, since my home computer's USB slots are in the back and both are used. I have a SanDisk MobileMate SD to USB converter, I can put files on it at work, then take the memory out and upload with the MP760.
    - No thick all encompassing manual, but rather printed quick start guides and the full manuals installed in HTML format on your PC.
    - Two TWAIN drivers are installed. One limits you to 600 DPI when scanning. Need to be scanning negatives or slides to get to 2400 DPI (someone correct me if I am wrong).
    - Two paper trays - one is a cassette down at the very bottom, the other is an automatic sheet feeder from the rear.

    Random blathering opinions ---
    - The print quality is great, but I don't have alot to compare it to.
    - Reasonably quiet. Other manf's models made beeps. I don't want to wake up the kids when printing at night.
    - Big. And you need even more room with the sheet feeder in the rear and the door to open in the front for finished prints to come out.
    - I would rather have the manuals in PDF over HTML.
    - Getting at and installing the print head and cartridges is harder than the Deskjet 540. There is some sort of prop rod, that needs to be unlatched to get it back down, and two doors in front of the print cartridges.
    - A consumer magazine states that each photo print costs about $0.85 on an MP780, and at the store near me its $0.29 for digital prints. But then again I can make a print right NOW if I wanted to.
    - Manual says you should not to just drop the power to it, you have to press the ON/OFF button and wait. Annoying, and what happens if the power goes out? What about when it is in sleep mode? Would be nice if the PC powers down it assumes it should power down, or at least be an option.

    I can personally vouch that it copies color or grayscale, scans with PC color or grayscale, prints directly from film negative to photo paper, prints from PC, and no software problems thus far. Everything else I either can't test it (like the PictBridge) or have not had the time.

    Overall, I'm glad I waited this long to buy an MFC and I'm glad I waited a bit longer for the MP760.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Does itfax?
    Could any one please tell me if this machine does scan to fax??? I have fax program in my XP.There were so many good reviews about this AIO, so it is hard to let go, but I need to use fax at least once a week.I have also considered MP780, but it doesn't come with the negative slide,thanks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Which Canon Multifunction is right for you?
    First off, if you're in the market for a printer, you can't go wrong with a Canon.Canon printers consistently beat out the competition in independent tests for print quality.Their items are elegant, well designed, and most importantly, ink is affordable.

    We all know the razor and blade scheme: sell the printer below cost and make it up with pricey cartridges.Canon, however, saves you a lot of money by including the print head with the printer and not on each cartridge.Because of this, genuine Canon cartridges can be had for around $12, while 3rd party cartridges, which many claim work just as well, can be found for as low as $2.

    If you've already decided on a Canon multifunction, lets see which model is right for you.Canon's current market list is as follows:

    MP130 - New model, and the most affordable yet.
    Copy/Print/Scan
    18ppm black, 13ppm color
    2 ink tanks
    No auto sheet feeder!
    Card slots

    MP390 - Has a fax, About half the cost of the MP7xx's.
    Copy/Print/SCan/Fax
    18ppm black, 12 ppm color
    2 ink tanks
    card slots

    MP750 - Older model - exactly the same as mp780 but no fax.
    Copy/Print/Scan
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    Built in Duplexing

    MP760 - New Model - geared towards photo enthusiasts.
    Copy/Print/Scan + Special Photo Features
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    No auto sheet feeder!
    Built in Duplexing
    *Unique photo features:
    2.5 inch lcd screen
    Built in film adapter for 35mm slides or negatives
    can print directly from negatives
    Card slots

    MP780 - Does it all except for the mp760 photo features.
    Copy/Print/Scan/Fax
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    Built in Duplexing

    Now, let's look more closely at some key differences between these models:

    *Fax: The first thing you should do is decide if you need a fax or not. If you do, you should choose between the MP780 or the MP390.If not, don't rule those two out just yet, they may have have other features you can't live without.

    *Note: There is NO auto fax/telephone switching on these models if you wish to use the same line for faxes and voice calls.

    *Number of ink tanks: The next important thing you should look at is whether you want to be able to replace each color individually or not.The MP750, MP760 and MP780 all have 5 individual ink tanks (photo black, black, cyan, yellow, magenta), while the MP130 and MP390 have only 2 (black and tricolor).The cost of each cartridge is about the same, but you will waste some leftover ink by throwing out the MP130 or MP390's color cartridge when just one color runs out.

    *Photo printing: If you're planning on printing a lot of photos, you should probably go with an mp7xx.These have a superior print head, as well as the 5 separate ink tanks.The MP760 is especially noteable with all the features Canon has added specifically for photos.These come at a price however, as the MP760 does not share the auto sheet feeder of its MP750 and MP780 cousins, or the fax of the 780.

    *However - If you plan on printing directly from memory cards, beware!The mp750 and mp780 do not have card slots!The 2 cheaper models and the mp760 do.

    *Auto sheet feeder: The mp130 and mp760 do NOT have an auto sheet feeder.All 3 of the others do.An auto sheet feeder is very useful when doing a lot of scanning or faxing.

    *Duplexing: The mp7xx models each have built in duplexing.

    *Size: The mp7xx models weigh around 30 pounds and are quite big.The MP390 is a smaller, and weighs 18 pounds.The mp130 has a tiny footprint for a multifunction printer, and weighs 14 pounds.

    Some features that all of Canon's current MFPs share:

    *Copying: Each of these models has a copy function, and all have the same resolution (600x600 black, 1200x1200 color).
    *USB 2.0 connection
    *Pictbridge direct photo printing support
    *All 5 models are great looking and will complement almost any decor.

    My recommendations:

    5-0 out of 5 stars DID SOME RESEARCH...BEST BRAND/ PRINTER!
    After hours of research on every brand of printer (Epson, HP, Lexmark, etc.) Canon was the overwhelming and best choice.After deciding on Canon, I purchased the PIXMA MP 750.This being the newest at the time, early 2005, was also the printer with all the features I needed.
    I almost got swayed into an Epson after finding out how bad HP reliability is but found out that Epson has some problems with their Print Heads going bad and/ or drying up.This is an expensive problem from what I understand since not only the print heads are expensive but only a "trained pro" can replace it.On Canon printers, anyone can change the print heads, although I have not heard of many problems with Canon print heads.Also, on any printer, Always...Always turn the printer OFF when not in use.Do not allow ink jet printers to stay in an on or standby mode for long as this will allow any printhead on any brand printer to dry up. If the printer is off, the printhead is automatically covered to extend the life of it.

    To address an issue that it took me a while to find out...WHY IS THE 5th INK A 2nd BLACK INK?The second black is a black ink to enhance photos mainly.It is a PIGMENT black ink (ie. Epson DURABrite inks) that Canon says increases the quality of the other four Dye-based inks.If you are thinking that you have seen many other printers with the option to have 6 inks for photos...dont worry, this printer, with its ultra-fine printhead, does the greatest job of any HP, Epson, or other 6 ink printers!

    THE GOOD...

    Great looks,
    THE best paper handling system out there...no jams,
    Ease of use,
    Two paper feeds,
    Photo print quality is the best...even with only 5 inks,
    The Finest/newest print head in the price range ($200-250),
    Flat bed and sheet fed batch scanning,
    Individual ink tanks,
    Good software bundle

    THE BAD...

    None after 2 months of use!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Which Canon Multifunction is right for you?
    First off, if you're in the market for a printer, you can't go wrong with a Canon.Canon printers consistently beat out the competition in independent tests for print quality.Their items are elegant, well designed, and most importantly, ink is affordable.

    We all know the razor and blade scheme: sell the printer below cost and make it up with pricey cartridges.Canon, however, saves you a lot of money by including the print head with the printer and not on each cartridge.Because of this, genuine Canon cartridges can be had for around $12, while 3rd party cartridges, which many claim work just as well, can be found for as low as $2.

    If you've already decided on a Canon multifunction, lets see which model is right for you.Canon's current market list is as follows:

    MP130 - New model, and the most affordable yet.
    Copy/Print/Scan
    18ppm black, 13ppm color
    2 ink tanks
    No auto sheet feeder!
    Card slots

    MP390 - Has a fax, About half the cost of the MP7xx's.
    Copy/Print/SCan/Fax
    18ppm black, 12 ppm color
    2 ink tanks
    card slots

    MP750 - Older model - exactly the same as mp780 but no fax.
    Copy/Print/Scan
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    Built in Duplexing

    MP760 - New Model - geared towards photo enthusiasts.
    Copy/Print/Scan + Special Photo Features
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    No auto sheet feeder!
    Built in Duplexing
    *Unique photo features:
    2.5 inch lcd screen
    Built in film adapter for 35mm slides or negatives
    can print directly from negatives
    Card slots

    MP780 - Does it all except for the mp760 photo features.
    Copy/Print/Scan/Fax
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    Built in Duplexing

    Now, let's look more closely at some key differences between these models:

    *Fax: The first thing you should do is decide if you need a fax or not. If you do, you should choose between the MP780 or the MP390.If not, don't rule those two out just yet, they may have have other features you can't live without.

    *Note: There is NO auto fax/telephone switching on these models if you wish to use the same line for faxes and voice calls.

    *Number of ink tanks: The next important thing you should look at is whether you want to be able to replace each color individually or not.The MP750, MP760 and MP780 all have 5 individual ink tanks (photo black, black, cyan, yellow, magenta), while the MP130 and MP390 have only 2 (black and tricolor).The cost of each cartridge is about the same, but you will waste some leftover ink by throwing out the MP130 or MP390's color cartridge when just one color runs out.

    *Photo printing: If you're planning on printing a lot of photos, you should probably go with an mp7xx.These have a superior print head, as well as the 5 separate ink tanks.The MP760 is especially noteable with all the features Canon has added specifically for photos.These come at a price however, as the MP760 does not share the auto sheet feeder of its MP750 and MP780 cousins, or the fax of the 780.

    *However - If you plan on printing directly from memory cards, beware!The mp750 and mp780 do not have card slots!The 2 cheaper models and the mp760 do.

    *Auto sheet feeder: The mp130 and mp760 do NOT have an auto sheet feeder.All 3 of the others do.An auto sheet feeder is very useful when doing a lot of scanning or faxing.

    *Duplexing: The mp7xx models each have built in duplexing.

    *Size: The mp7xx models weigh around 30 pounds and are quite big.The MP390 is a smaller, and weighs 18 pounds.The mp130 has a tiny footprint for a multifunction printer, and weighs 14 pounds.

    Some features that all of Canon's current MFPs share:

    *Copying: Each of these models has a copy function, and all have the same resolution (600x600 black, 1200x1200 color).
    *USB 2.0 connection
    *Pictbridge direct photo printing support
    *All 5 models are great looking and will complement almost any decor.

    My recommendations:

    If you want a great price on an excellent printer and don't need a fax: MP130

    If price is an issue but you still need a fax: MP390

    If you can afford an MP700 series and don't need a fax, card slots, or the MP760's photo features: MP750

    If you need its exclusive photo features (but no fax or auto sheet feeder): MP760

    If you can afford an MP700 series and need a fax (but no card slots and none of the MP760s photo features): MP780

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well designed multifunction
    I had originally planned to buy the Canon MP130 but chose this model instead since the launch of the MP130 in the US was delayed. In retrospect I am glad that I went with the MP750 despite the increased price and size. Print quality is generally excellent, especially when printing on treated inkjet paper. I keep regular cheap paper in the bottom cassette, and keep the nice stuff in the automatic sheet feeder, which makes it easy to switch. The printer is also very quiet compared to other inkjets I've owned, and does not have as long and obnoxious a startup/warmup sequence either. I like the fact that I can replace each color ink cartridge individually. The scanning and copier functions are quick and produce high quality output. I frequently use the double-sided printing option, which ends up saving a lot of paper.

    The only minor complaint I have at this point is that the unit emits a very slight hiss whenever it is plugged in (even if not turned on) -- I believe this is from the flourescent tube in the scanner. Then again, I have very sensitive hearing and it doesn't bother my wife at all. The hiss is generally most pronounced right after the scanner is used, and then fades away (but never disappears completely). Still, something to consider if you're thinking of putting this in the bedroom. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars iPod photo 30G did not fit
    Great concept but...One previous review stated that the ipod photo did not fit.I found the same thing.I contacted Altec Lansing by phone and despite removing the adapter my ipod would still not sit in the dock.It seemed "off center"and would not seat.The tech continued to tell me that it would fit, no luck.

    4-0 out of 5 stars MiniIPod system on the go
    This puppy also works great with 40GB IPod too as we found out recently on an evening of Frank Caliendoimpressions and jokes. The ultra compact remote is way cool, almost futuristic-JamesBondish in sleek design. Plug your Ipod inon the desk and you almost expect a hologram to appear and start speaking to you. Seriously though this is one little impressive unit. This is a nice accessory for the IPod that looks good and sounds pretty decent, not great mind you. For the less discerning listener this is a perfect system for being on the go. In some ways the fact that the sound won't blast the doors of a room is a blessing. I bought this forone ofmy sons and he likes it to take into every room to play outloud . When he goes to visit grandma he takes his little system. He loves to take it to the bathroom for showering and I don't have to tell him to turn it down! The latest version (im3)does have DC so that takes care of the battery complaint. However rechargeable batteries do the trick for places without DC. The carrying case is very cool, a sleek little lightweight case that will protect the surface with velcro closures . It is only slightly padded(wouldn't want to bulk it up!) so care should be given while your Ipod is stowed away or traveling. Total size is about 10''x 6" which is amazing since it is super thin as well. I would recommend this little package for a cool little addition to your IPod to take your tunes on the road. Besides it looks so darn cool on a desk when you dock your IPod and let your music library play on shuffle.

    4-0 out of 5 stars for using with 30g ipod photo
    The instruction maual is not clear on this, but you must remove the factory installed 40g adapter in order to seat the ipod photo in the dock.Otherwise the speakers works fine as an office radio for me.Soundwise it is certainly no stereo system, but that is not what I was looking for.

    1-0 out of 5 stars NOT Compatable with iPod photo!
    My 40gb iPod photo DOES NOT FIT in the dock.Altec Lansing tech support claims by removing the installed adapter it will fit, but in fact IT DOES NOT...Altec Lansing also claims that the iM3c is compatable with the iPod photo.Amazon apparently does not carry the iM3c only the iM3...

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE AN iPod Photo!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars WORKS Greatif you want a portable system for travel
    I love this inmotion set up it is perfect for travel here and over seas. Sound is great only destorts at higher volume. It is perfect for hotels and bedrooms. The remote is a little quirky but figure 50 dollars for just a remote if you buy any other porduct. I would recommend the im3 to those looking for portablity and quailty sound for size matters people

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works great, but not what I expected in looks.
    Bottom line, the 512 Cruzer Micro is a great usb drive to own, it'sextremely slim, light, and portable. Everything you could ask for.

    However, the only issue I had was that the Cruzer was upgraded, and what I had ordered here from Amazon was different when I received my package. The LED at the end of the drive that lights up is Green instead of Blue, I was a little bit shocked and dissapointed even though it's purely an aesthetic feature. The clear outer casing is rubber and can be swapped for either the Blue or Red cases that also come with the drive.

    Overall I'm definately happy with the performance of the Cruzer Micro, though I still want other people to know that this product has been updated from SanDisk, with minor changes to the look.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Impressive survivability
    Ok, I got this about a year ago when it was handy to take things to and from work.It worked great for me.The only thing that I didn't like about it was that the cap came off very easily and soon was lost . . . and it also came with another type of holder that too was easily lost.The stap that you can use to keep it around your neck broke pretty easily.I ended up finding the slide in case that came with it, but then I found it broken in my pocket not too long afterwards.It was kinda annoying being given a product that had so many breakable parts.I was just glad the drive itself wasn't so easy to break, but then I wasn't going to take chances given how crappy the rest of its packaging had been.

    Then I lost it.Yeah it's small and i'm clumsy.But I found it again when the ganitor gave it to the department office claiming "They found it in their vacuum cleaner."GREAT!$50 down the drain.But wait...it worked!Well that's impressive.

    Then I lost it again.Yeah it's small and i'm clumsy and absent minded.I left it this time in a pocket... and it found its way into the laundry.Washer + Cheer with color guard in a load of white + hot water = dead drive.Wait... it still worked?Wow.

    I did this one more time and it went through the dryer.Ok, so i'm the clumsiest and most forgettful soul, but it still worked after that too!I was tempted to microwave it and run it with my dishes in the wash just to see how well it would hold up then too, but i didn't.Industrial vacuum cleaner, washer, dryer . . . still winking away with its little blue light.I was very impressed that it still worked.Now if the rest of the packaging could be as durable.

    It was 512, perfect size for me to take Microsoft office files back and forth and even keep a small program installed on it.It is small, thumb drive and no larger than any other USB plug.I bought a Banzai 512 to replace this during one of the times that I lost it.The Banzai requires a USB extension to operate as it is too big and takes up about 3 USB slots just because of its awkward shape.This is a great little device that i've had for a while now (3 months w/o losing it again) and I use it the most.

    I also won $5 on a bet that it wouldn't work after being vacuumed up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent device, though different from the one pictured
    I had purchased this model in the 256 MB size and wanted the small capacity in a 512 MB model. What I got was apparently a newly designed, slimmer model than the previous cruzer micro. The rubber is gone, making the device extra slim, the thickness of a USB connector and as long as two quarters placed side by side. It's small enough to fit in one's wallet, and very nice. If you liked the rubber grip of the old model, this one still comes with 3 rubber "skins" of different colors to customize your micro. The blue light is now green.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Slight variations from description
    Just got my Cruzer today and was thrilled to find it came with two extra sleeves--a red one and a blue one, but wasn't too thrilled to discover a green LED instead of the blue one I ordered.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best 512MB you can find
    The Micro continues to be my favorite flash drive, design and functionally; I have Micros of several sizes from 128MB to 1GB and I intend to get more as the capacity increases.

    This device transfers data to and from devices that support USB Flash drives (computers etc.) very quickly and efficiently, and requires absolutely no drivers in plug-and-play operating systems like Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Mac OS X.Use it as storage for your MP3 player, keep your important documents backed up on it, or even work right the drive--with performance like this, the possibilities are endless.The Micro also supposedly comes with built-in security for each unit, but I've never used it.

    The slim 'Micro' physical design also deserves a standing ovation.The actual unit is very short and isn't much wider than a USB port, so it fits anywhere.The cap is pretty smug and when you take it off to use the drive, it fits conveniently on the reverse end.If you loose the cap, it comes with extras, or you can buy them separately. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied
    This is my first multifunction printer/fax/scanner/copier. I'm very satisfied with the print, photos and relative ease in setting up my machine. The photos are much better then what I got from my Epson C80 or Dell 720 and the print appears to be as good as what I get from my (workhorse) HP 5MP laser. A very big selling point for me was the cost of replacement cartridges. Reviews are available elsewhere. I liked Consumer Reports review for one. I have one problem to fix... I was able to send a very nice crisp fax from home to work but haven't figured out how to configure, wire it, with my DSL so that it recognizes a fax as opposed to a voice call.. The manual says to ask my DSL provider... Ha!

    1-0 out of 5 stars WARNING WARNING THIS IS JUNK
    I own a small business with 3 locations. I have 6 HP G85 multi function machines and was looking for replacements as they are getting old. I read alot about Canon and many people bragged about how great it was and how wonderfull the multi cartridge system was. So I bought one.BAD DEALfor me The color copies compaired to any of my G85's SUCK their BAD. I actually had more than one customer over the years try to pick up their drivers license from my desk when it was actually the copy of their license. There is no Mistake on the Canon it dosent represent real life at all. I use VOIP and the HP g85 has no problem faxing. On the Canon it will almost never fax over VOIP. On my G85 it has a director program so that I can do maintenence and add fax information from my desktop. No such thing with the Canon Pixma. The copies are marginal in quality compaired to the Hp G85. Its the worst printer I have ever spent money on and do not recommend it to anyone. I called Canon for help and got NOTHING from them. They werent wiling to or couldnt help me with the questions I had about the machine. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT BUY THIS. If you have any questions please call me Ed 3109436377 Ill be glad to stand behind and back up what I have said here.

    Drivers will not install.tried twice on this win xp computer.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Almost there, but not quite
    Strengths: This AIO manages to combine excellent performance both in text and photo mode at a very good cost per page. The scanner is good, producing some very fast and crisp results.

    Weaknesses: Very large. Software subpar. Output door won't open if the surface the printer is sitting on is not perfectly flat. Front buttons can be accidentally pressed when scanning books/bound material.

    Summary: I'm a former HP AIO user that was tired of the high cost per page of the HP products. So this time I decided to try the Canon AIO. The Canon Pixma MP780 is basically a photo printer at heart with a decent scanner thrown in. I think this hardware is without doubt some of the best being made right now. But this product has a huge downside, software. The drivers, scanning and printing software included with the MP780 are sub par at best.


    Here are the software problems I've encountered thus far:

    Scanning software: - No auto correction for angled scans. - The "simple" interface does not allow for any other options for DPI settings besides 150 and 300 DPI. You have to use the "advanced' interface for any other DPI settings. The "advanced" interface is not a good choice for novice users. (just ask my wife)- After scanning you still have to "accept" the scans in another dialog. Very annoying. (Why can't they just be put into the output folders as you go?)

    Printing Software: - The included "Easy Photo-Print" software cannot print multiple images from differing folders. All images have to be in ONE folder for it to work. - The "Easy Photo-Print" software cannot print TIFF images. Even though this is the default format from the scan software.

    Printer Driver: - Mostly ok, but the interface is very pixilated. Reminds me of an old 16bit windows application.

    All in all this could be the "killer application" if the software package was re-written. But as it is, it's just an exercise in frustration.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great choice for an all-in-one...
    I had owned an Epson all-in-one. Worked great for about a year, then had massive printhead clogging issues. Buy an Epson -- you'll eventually regret it.
    Got a Pixma MP780. Very happy with it.
    The build is sufficiently robust. Controls are easy to reach and understand. Print quality of photos is outstanding. Regular text printing is very fast.
    As the other reviews here have mentioned, you can EASILY AND INEXPENSIVELY REPLACE the printhead. Someday, no matter which printer you're using, you'll have to do this. This Canon makes it very easy. (Epson makes it very expensive)
    I'm on a Mac running 10.3.8. All software worked as expected. Upgrading to Tiger 10.4 soon; we'll see if it breaks anything/everything. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! Speaker broken-No JBL Customer Support
    The sound is decent for its small size, the best among its competitors including the much more expensive Bose iPod speaker. After 6 months of operation, the speaker no longer works. The touch volume controls appear to be shorting out. The JBL website says that this is a recognized problem, but when I entered the serial number, the website reported that my unit was unaffected!I emailed customer service and have not received a response 72 hours later.There is a customer service number that is nearly impossible to find: 516-255-4JBL.I will call tomorrow but I bet it will be hours on hold--the company made every possible effort to hide the number on its website.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Sounds fine, but re-charger dock stopped working
    I didn't have the chip problem, and I like the sound that goes with this little doughnut, but I have been troubled to discover that the re-charger dock no longer works while the iPod is docked. It conked out after a couple of months of use, so now I'm back to plugging the iPod into the computer or the wall socket in order to keep it charged. Perhaps this product wasn't ready for prime time.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for frequent travelers, but....
    Terriffic unit with great sound.Super for making life in hotels a bit more home-like.

    However, has some potentially meaningful shortcomings:

    1.The power adapter is unusually large and heavy (weighs more than the On-Stage unit itself) and it doesn't work with 220 volt electrical systems.Therefore, to use in Europe and Asia, you'll need a step-down voltage transformer, thus adding to the weight and bulk of the total package.

    2.When used with a remote control (e.g. Griffin i-Click), volume commands don't work if unit is in the charging dock.For volume control to work, must use provided audio-in cable to connect iPod to On-Stage unit.

    Bottom line, though, these are fairly minor considerations whencompared to the overall benefits of the unit -- primarily compact and attractive form factor, good clear sound with respectable bass and not having to wear earphones in order to enjoy your iPod.

    5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD PRODUCT
    I bought my speakers in March and have had absolutely no problems with them. I would not recommend any other speakers due to the output and versatility of these speakers. My serial number showed a non-defective chip so I send my sorrows for all the other people unable to enjoy their iPod, but hey they work great!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Sound from a Small Portable Unit
    I LUV this speaker! It's small and light enough for easy travel yet packs a good sound punch! I keep it by my bedside for charging my iPod each night and listening to music before falling asleep. Easy to transport to different rooms and supply unlimited music for parties. I highly recommend for it's versatility and sound quality. ... Read more
