    I found a guy who want to sell his 80G 6th Classic for a bargain 35$! sure I bought it. its in a good condition no hard scratches or anything.
    but its a bit laggy and the touch wheel is unresponsive. So is that normal somehow? :cool:
    I reset the settings and data but the issue is still there. any suggestions? :)

    Its not as fast as my other 5.5 video or the 3rd Nano. a bit slow and 3 or 4 seconds wait to load album art. and that click wheel is also not responsive as I used to have on other iPod's.

    It's possible that it's a counterfeit model made from inferior components. Have you used the serial number printed on it to verify that it is real?

    Ha. That's nothing. I just picked up two 160gig models for $40 AUD (say $30 US at current exchange rates) each off my local Gumtree website (similar to Craigslist). Both in great condition. Says he bought matching devices for him and his wife 4 years ago but they never really used them.

    Diagnostics for the one I've checked says only 156 hours of on time.

    I transferred all my music to one to test and have had it running for 8 hours and the battery is still 3/4 full.

    Great bargains are still out there if you're patient.

    I agree with the others, you can get lucky and get a bargain, I once bought the 1st gen ipod for $20 I don't think the seller knew what he had.

    Ugh, hey all! I need to get my act together and get some pics to post of my
    lil' ipod collection. I think I got a bit over 300 of them, all different models,
    all sealed in the box. The latest nice addition to collection was a Ipod Classic
    4th gen 60GB photo (1st gen 2004 model, white box, blue lettering). Now I'm
    on the hunt for the 2nd gen 2005 model which came in a black box with silver
    lettering on it.
