and it exceeded my expectations. It's great. The audio is truly impressive. A noticeable improvement in sound quality over my first generation iPod Nano 4 gig. It goes louder. More detail with richer basses. The video is exceptional. No artifacts or defects. I can look at it straight on with no problems. Now for my wish list. I yearn for a stand alone RSS reader, that is able to pre download all the articles during a sync, to replace Avantgo on my PDA. I would like to update my schedule. That's it. It's wonderful. I use EyeTV to record shows and export to iTunes for the iPod automatically. When I sync, the TV show(s) end up on the Touch. It's fantastic!
