Great price although these are fairly fixable too if you can get a spares/repairs. I ended up with an 80GB 3rd/4th Gen Classic that needed a replacement hard drive. Guy sold it to me for £20.

Bought a hard drive and back cover (unless you're super careful, you WILL damage the back) for around £30 or so. Sold it for £100 and bought a fully working, mint condition 6th/7th Gen. Ended up wreaking the battery point so needed a specialist solderer to solder on the port again.

Works amazingly although battery could do with replacing as could the HDD for a SSD (one thing I highly recommend, my library is fairly large and the standard hdd just struggles at times to load everything). Although you then lose that classic (if you pardon the pun), weight and feel.
Hi,seem a lot of money for old Apple technology. I don't see it at nearly £100.00 ,and the condition is state as only good.
My 160GB is still working well and is always in the car full up carrying the majority of my music

This isn’t a bad price at all if you have a chunky collection.

Just buy Android phone and micro SD card. Or dedicated mp3 player from Sony and micro SD card. This is super old at this point and heavy.

It's like the whole Vinyl vs Digital argument - It's just something people don't get (and that's not me being pretentious or so). Old tech like this is collectable, I can sell it or collect them and then sell them for a high price later.

I adore vinyl purely because I get this massive chunk of plastic with a huge print of the album artwork. Having a mechanical needle that plays your music - it's a nice feeling. Hanging up your vinyl sleeves too as art on your walls - you just don't get that with digital.

I've had media players cheap and expensive but I adore my Classic for the simple fact is - nostalgia, weight and the infamous clickwheel.

Yes, you can go and buy a generic MP3 player or use your phone but try selling it down the line and you'll get far less than what you paid. Considering Apple doesn't sell these anymore they're very collectable and you can make some serious dosh buying/selling or even refurbing them.

I can't sell my digital collection, it's there forever. Vinyl however, if you get hold of first pressings (Pink Floyd etc) you can earn hundreds, even thousands.

If your only "suggestion" is to buy an Android Phone and Micro SD card (typical anti-apple) - you're missing the point.
I have one but rarely use it unfortunately. What sites do you use to download music to it these days?

The Apple IPod Classic has a superb DAC chip which no way would be matched with any android phone.

Absolutely love these ipods I built mine using all new parts and used a 1tb ssd which gives 941gb useable memory, yes I could of just bought a cheap phone and memory card but that’s not what I wanted. I guess it’s each to their own.

I have an 80gb 6th gen. it’s ok. Nothing special. Sound is average. I’ve put Rockbox firmware on it so I don’t have to mess with the disaster that is iTunes - I just drag and drop music files on to it).

It was great when 80gb was not feasible with solid state, but now 64gb sd is less than £10.

Apart from collecting for retro, I really can’t see why you would spend so much on an iPod over any half decent MP3 player at a fraction of the price.... or a phone.

I can see the vinyl argument as the sound is slightly different than digital and people may have vinyl collections already.

The sound on the newer/last gen models have a better DAC i believe which would improve quality.

I honestly don't mind iTunes, it enables me to get all my music labelled and tagged correctly. I know you can do this third-party but I've not had issues doing it via iTunes.

The thing is though, why would I buy a phone to play my music? It's like buying a tank as a taxi. Ok, maybe not to that extent but you get my point. It's just music, I get much better battery life than any of my phones.

Again, it's collecting. For a device this old I could probably still get much more than if I were to buy a standard MP3 player.

Also, give me another MP3 player that has the legendary coverflow/clickwheel.
These are good and last forever but kind of old now for this sort of money.

Completely off topic....I’ve got one of these, full of music from old CDs I no longer have as well as photos but not sure if I can get the music and photos off of it onto my laptop. I’m a bit concerned that if I plug into my laptop with a different iTunes library as the original one went ages ago it will try to sync and I’ll lose everything on it.

Any ideas welcome...
I always had an iPod, almost 10 years, various models as a fancy external USB drive and for car stereo. As soon as Apple pulled the plug for ipod classic, I sold my 160GB one which I bought 2nd hand for £75, for £150. Lol. Bought the first iPod touch, never really liked it, eventually gave up on iPod as the iPhone se was a good alternative.

I have an iPhone and had this iPod as well. It was really good at the time.

But there is no more software support and battery will probably need replacing. It has a hard drive which means apart from it's weight it can be damaged when it falls.

You can get used hi-res mp3 player from Sony (hardly generic) which will blow this out of the water. Not sure what's there to be nostalgic about. In terms of electronics it's ancient, in absolute terms it was available 5-6 years ago.

With regards to vinyl at least you admit it's not about quality.

Even LG and hi-res mp3 players? Please.
One of my favourite apple products ever released. Regret selling mine even to this day!
Still use mine every day, battery still lasts over a week.
I have an ipod classic 5.5g (wolfram dac) and it beats my Sony hi-res player, my iPhone, ipod touch, Sony Xperia xz premium and bq m5. 5 (which has the Marshall phone dac in it). In terms of my personal taste, it's the warmest, richest sound of all (and yes I use high spec cans with them all).
I recently bought a Sony NW-A45 mp3 player and I love it, its tiny I've stuck a 64gb sd card, has Bluetooth so I can use Bluetooth headphones which sound great.

I have an 80gb and I think the hard drive has gone it.
