    Sooo, I'm finally going to jump on the ipod bandwagon.

    I'm going to be traveling a lot and would like to take my music with me.

    I'm considering getting the large Ipod classic, to connect in my car.

    Here's the problem,...I've been reading about the sixth generation classic having sound quality issues and this is certainly a concern for me.

    I don't want to purchase something that sounds subpar, and be dissappointed.

    Thoughts? Comments?

    No Problems here.
    It's a good bargain as you can store a lot of music on it.
    Go for it.

    My classic has been great to me, and even with my iPhone I still find great use for it and still revert to it at times, no trouble here.

    I love mine. I still feel like the touch screen of the ipod touch is still too gimicky and not functional enough to justify the price. The ipod classic's usability is excellent. Tried and true.

    IT will be updated very soon or maybe even removed from sale.

    word is the ipod classic is going to be phased out because Apple does not want to use HDD's anymore.

    Yeah - I'm kind of thinking the iPod Classic is going to be taken out behind the barn and silently put down.

    Maybe they'll squeeze another year of life out of it with a price cut to $199. But I wouldn't expect any significant capacity or feature upgrade.

    This is nothing more than specualtion from people on this board with nothing solid to back it up.

    On topic, I have a 160 GB classic and I love it. I recommend it for your uses.

    I don't know why I so dislike the word "purchase." But for some reason I do. Why not just say "buy" for "get"?

    Hmmm, looks like ebay is the only place for one of those now.

    True, but the 120 GB would be a fine replacement.

    once the iPod Touch gets to a reasonably cheap price with 64GB in it, i'll def buy that to fit all my music library on it.

    but right now, i'm goin strong with my regular iPod ;)

    Maybe I should just buy a new 120GB. Sigh.

    Wish I could find a 160.

    I think we'll see one last generation of the iPod classic, but will switch from a 120 GB single-platter drive to a 160 GB single-platter drive and possibly get the same menu display system used on the 4G iPod nano.

    Come September 2010, the iPod classic will finally be replaced by a 128 GB iPod touch.

    A Zune, an older iPod, ....? 60 GB isn't that much these days.

    The 160GB is chunky as anything. I'm not someone that loves Apple 'cause everything's super thin, but I did stop and stare when I first saw one. This isn't exactly a problem as such, especially not if you keep it in your car.

    Same :) They're sturdy things as well. Mine is an iPod that has clearly seen life, especially since it skidded along the pavement face down last year.

    Yeah. It'll be in my vehicle the majority of the time. Is the 160 bigger than the 120 in physical size?

    I have the 160gb and love it. The only time it comes out of the car and into the house is to update the music. My only problem is I am running out of space. I wish they would come out with a 500gb.
