    This thing is AMAZING!!!

    I bought the 20Gb iPod through the refurb store + it is in perfect condition.

    Did have one slight moment when I first connected it. It got extremely hot + I decided to disconnect it + let it cool down before I continued to charge it. I guess putting 2500 songs on + charging from scratch was quite a lot for it. At one point the lower part of the screen started changing colour!! As soon as it had cooled it went back to normal. Have reconnected it again + it is charging nicely now. Guess the combination of putting all those songs on + charging was a little much.

    I am so happy.

    Still glad I dumped my ol' 5 gig a while back, but I'm a bit jealous. *sniff* I miss that little thang...

    out of curiosity, how much did it cost to get it in refurbished form?

    Here in the UK, my refurbished 20Gb iPod was £279.33. As a reference, the new 15Gb iPod costs £299 here. So, I got a larger capacity iPod that was cheaper. Plus, my iPod is in perfect condition - cant see a reason why it was sent back.

    Hope you enjoy that iPod.

    I'm supposed to be getting a 30GB iPod here sometime soon, it finally shipped, and ironically out of a Taiwan plant! I checked my FexEx detailed tracking, and my iPod is currently sitting at some FedEx warehouse in Taiwan awaiting shipping.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, I need to change my sig.

    The iPod does get hot when charging, up to the point where holding it from its behind can burn you. :eek:

    But it won't hurt your new device, big guy.

    Enjoy using it.
