The iPod Classic 5thgeneration might not be the newest kid on the block, but it can still serve all your media playing needs at an affordable price! Just because it’s almost ten years old doesn’t mean it’s obsolete. The iPod Classic 5 really is a classic. Check out what it can do.
This was the first iPod to support video playback in MP4 and H.264 formats. Keep the kids (or yourself) entertained with movies and TV shows downloaded via iTunes or Google Video. It’s a great way to make sure you’re never bored, without having to drag around a bulkier laptop or tablet. The iPod Classic 5 30GB can store up to 75 hours of video, and the 60GB or 80GB supports twice as much.
You’ll never have to choose which songs to leave off your player due to space constraints. In most cases, the iPod Classic 5 will be able to store your entire music library. The 30GB will be enough for the average listener, who probably won’t have over 7,500 songs, but for the true audiophile, the 60GB or 80GB will have you covered.
The battery life is good enough for everyday use, with up to 14 hours of music playback per charge. Video playback is only 2 hours, which is still enough for a full-length movie or several shows, so don’t plan for more than that.
This is a great iPod for the casual user who just wants to use it for music playback and the occasional video.It may not be one of the fancier versions, but it’s solid and dependable!
