They're just now reviewing the 5 Gigabyte iPod?!

(just kidding... We should start calling these G5 iPods. Crap, can't even use "G5". What a hassle)

I suggest we go with "fifth-gen" or "gen-5".

I suggest we go with "fifth-gen" or "gen-5".I've been calling them "iPod Gen5", for the most part.

A very detailed review, well worth a read.

Pleased to hear how well the batteries last!

Sounds like they partly wanted it to be a video-focussed player, which would have been "cool news" but made no sense in the market at the moment.

Good to know that as a music-focussed player (which is what it is), it's better than ever :)

Good review.

I'm satisfied with it in what it is (a music player with video capibilities). My only dislikes are that the case shouldn't be considered a case, and video conversion takes too long. shouldn't even need conversion.
