    The iPod Classic is for people who love their MUSIC, and not (necessarily) social media. This review was written on February 6th, 2016.I bought my 30GB iPod w/video back in 2006. In October of 2014, I purchased a FiiO E12 Mont Blanc Portable Headphone Amplifier and a nice set of Beyerdynamic headphones to use with it (my reviews for both of these are on Amazon), and after years of using crappy earbuds, that made for the perfect private listening situation for me.That iPod is still functional after 10 years. Last summer (2015) it stopped holding a charge for longer than an hour, and then I cracked the screen on my beloved baby installing a new battery on my own. It slowly became difficult to use without turning the backlight off completely. Still, it was *usable*. And I had NO desire to get an iPod Touch or an iPhone or to start using a “smart phone” or streaming to listen to music. I have a basic cell phone for road emergencies only, and I have zero interest in Social Media, craptastic waste of time that it is. I just want my music!!But, at nearly the same point in time, my library had grown to the point where I had to start unchecking music in iTunes in order to get the latest stuff I had purchased onto the iPod. It was still working, however… so I persevered.I’d seen the writing on the wall for awhile, though, and for about the last 2 years, I wanted another classic iPod, and I knew I would buy one with a huge amount of space. The math was simple: if a 30GB iPod got me started by getting my entire collection of CD’s into the mp3 world, and then lasted me another 10 years of adding more music as I went along, I knew that 160GB was going to last me until I die – barring the darn thing breaking. And I am VERY careful with my toys – the battery incident was an act of desperation to keep it going, and that was the *only* thing that ever went wrong with the first one in 10 long years. I do not abuse my toys and the iPod was the format I liked best for listening to my music.So it made sense for me to finally just get another classic with more room. But, I waited a little too long. Apple discontinued making the classic iPods long ago.Now, I have been working on Macs in the printing & design industry for appx. 25 years. I was with them in the awe-inspiring early days, but Apple is just like any other huge conglomerate now: everyone tries to mold you into the customer that they want, instead of the person you are. It’s all about the money, and they get a lot more of it out of you if you get a phone, and a subscription, and you listen to streaming music instead of files, and they love to help you decide who your new favorite artists are.For someone like me, this is a crock of doggie poopy. I am their worst customer, because I am completely NOT susceptible to that hype. It’s 2016 and I still don’t even have any sort of subscription TV, nor do I want it. Like I said, I have a very cheap cell phone from Virgin for emergencies, and I have a middle-of-the-road-speedwise, cable-not-wireless internet and basic landline service for my house. That’s it.Just like my movies & TV shows, I want to own my music. I want to keep it organized my way, and I want to play/watch it on devices that are NOT CONNECTED TO THE REST OF THE PLANET while I do so. Privacy & control. So, making a commitment to purchase this iPod was a difficult decision for me financially, but given my feelings about the ‘other ways’ the industry wants us to experience our entertainment now, and that I absolutely did not want a used or refurbished classic, I was forced to bite the bullet and pay a hefty price for a “new” 160 GB classic. I got it in the “white box”, which saved me about a hundred bucks. It was a good decision, if not an expensive one.So far, everything is working just fine. It’s basically a shiny new version of what I just had, sliver instead of black this time (what the hell, right?) with only slightly updated software (thank the stars) and waaaay more room to play with. Plus, the back is so perfectly mirror-like I can use it to put on my lipstick!! What’s not to love there? Heaven cost me four hundred bucks, but I am, nonetheless, in heaven. :) Hey, Apple, are you listening? I will never, ever appreciate why you stopped making this amazing device.And just to let you good people know, there are two happy endings for me this time: I have taken that still-fully-functional-just-no-backlight old iPod to work with me – I will never update it again, obviously, but it has a new battery and 5,700 songs on it to help keep me less frustrated until I can retire. Which will be in about 17 years. *sigh*Some info about the seller I went with, because it bears saying: Not even one day after I bought this iPod, I got a detailed & very welcomed eMail from my seller, Nacho.Stuff, describing to me their business, how they get their iPods, how old it actually is,…
