    I am trying to decide between buying a new 30 or 80, or an "outdated" 60.

    I have about 20 gigs of Music. I'd like to throw a few seasons of the simpsons on my video ipod. I am curious how much space they take up?

    Also has anyone done a side by side on the brightness. Is it that much better?

    If you intend n putting 20gig of music on your ipod, definatly do not get a 30gig, i honestly have no idea on how much it would take..

    Well I know that with the H.264 codec support for the iPod, Family Guy episodes were about 120mb each for me, highest quality. Without codec, about 230mb.

    Hope that helps.

    I recommend the 80Gb, plus you get 6.5 hours of battery life.

    Prison break is abut 515MB per episode with the new encoding.

    It used to be about 230MB.
