yeah, seen those reviews too, mostly from the time of it's launch in 2008/2009, I also read where firmware upgrades have sorted out bugs.

They're okay for a movie/music jukebox. If you're travelling a lot it can be handy to fit a couple of hundred movies/episodes on a single device.

That description would have been written in 2008 when the model launched.

800x480 on a 4.8" screen was certainly 'high resolution' at the time (iPod touch that year was 480x320).

Yeah I'd leave this one tbh. Had a go of one ages ago, and there really was nothing good to say about it. Maybe if it was 20 quid then yeah, it'd be good. But not at £70.

I know yeah, just mental looking back and thinking that that was high res!

I have the same resolution on my 4.3" android and I'm starting to get very jealous of the 4.7ish" HD screens around these days!
