The enhanced iPod (80GB, black shown here) includes better video battery life, a brighter screen, gapless playback, instant search, and several other new features. Nothing revolutionary here (some features are even "borrowed" from its competitors), but it's a very solid upgrade. Read full review

At 4.1 by 2.4 by 0.43 inches and 4.8 ounces, the 30GB iPod is definitely one of the world's sleekest high-capacity players. To many users, the thicker (0.55 inches) and heavier (5.5 ounces) 80GB version actually feels more comfortable in the hand. Read full review

At $249 for the 30GB version and $349 for the 80GB version, the iPod is genuinely a deal. It has forced Creative to lower the prices of its heralded Zen Vision:M, and others will follow. It's important to point out, though, that the street prices for the iPod competitors are often lower than $250. Read full review

The 5.5G iPod possesses the same scratch-prone body as its predecessor. This is definitely one player that needs a case (and luckily for iPod owners, there are thousands of cases available). The updated Nano and the shrunken Shuffle are skinned in durable alumnium; is the aluminum iPod far behind? Read full review

Early summer 2006, Apple released the 5G update to the U2 Special Edition iPod. Many saw this model as the last of this particular form factor, until the updated iPod arrived on September 12. Will we see updated versions of these as well? Read full review

Apple's improved the iPod screen's brightness, video battery life has been pumped up, and now you can fill it with iTunes movies. But the 2.5-inch screen is just too small for lengthy viewings. Read full review
