E168178 - Apple 160GB iPod Classic w/ 5-pc. Accessory Kit& $50 ZinioCard
5-pc. Accessory Kit OVERPRICED!!
If it hadn't been for the easy-pay option I would have NEVER bought this so called combo package. I absolutely love the iPod, but hate that I got taken with these cheap accessories that I really don't need.
All the memory I need!
The accessories r just ok, but the ipod is awsome! I can load as much music, pics, video that I want...and wont ever run out of room!!!! I am buying music & loading it up & have barely scratched the surface!!!! I love this ipod! I use my 32GB ipod touch to workout with, and I carry this ipod classic with me everywhere else....perfect!!!
Firstly, the Apple iPod is a great product. I enjoy it immensely and the reason I purchased from QVC was for the payment plan as I am traveling for a lengthy period of time shortly and didnt want to buy it in one shot.
The accessory kit is garbage. The headphones are useless and very poorly made and the entire package is severely overpriced. The accessories are no name brands and can be purchased separately for literally pennies from a variety of retailers. The Zinio Card expired in Sept 2012 (I purchased in Oct) and is useless anyway as digital magazines can only be read on the Touch model, not the Classic model. For the price you will probably pay, they should at the very least provide a higher end headphone brand.
I am happy with the iPod as its now a ubiquitous product and its ease of use is unparalleled, but if I wasn't pinching pennies and didnt need the EasyPay option, I'd avoid this entirely as everything else provided with this item is mostly useless garbage that is cheaply made and can be gotten separately for a fraction of the price.
Overall I'm very satisfied with iPod classic. I wish QVC would sell it as a stand alone item but they don't. The accessories are a nice addition but I don't really need them. You can tell they were just thrown in as a side item. The headphones are really bad and the cables are somewhat cheap but useable. This is a good starter package for someone who doesn't have the associated gear to listen to the iPod. 5 stars for the iPod Classic itself. 1 star for the accessories. I give the package 4 stars as I will build around the iPod with better gear.
Complete Package !
Now I can store all my music and videos confortably and enjoy them on the go !!
Amazed at capacity!
Love this ipod that has massive capacity! My entire music library and several movies barely made a dent in the capacity. This is not a unit to watch a movie, but it comes with plugs that plug into the TV and viola..anywhere you can have movie time! Converting the file for movies is a bit tricky, but once I figured that, awesome. If you plan to buy straight from Apple, no converting necessary, but I had several favorites I wanted to digitize for use and awesome!!!! so happy and QVC made it happen! Qvc needs to come up with a "My QVC" program..I swear, I love the products and this is icing on the cake due to easy pay!
OH, the head phones are fantastic! very comfortable and totally flexible!
<3 it !
I love my iPod! I have always wanted one with enough gigs to put all of my music on and not have to pick and choose what would fit onto a smaller gig one. With this deal I finally broke down and bought this one. The package is very nice, I haven't used the headphones yet but they fold flat which is fantastic for storage or travel purposes! I will probably never use the AV Cords but it is nice to have them and I love the retractable cable to connect to an iPod jack in the car. It would be nice if the package would come with a case since the back of the iPods scratch so easily and it is really hard to find cases for the classic in Best Buy and other local stores, but I did find a great one on Ebay. I haven't used the $50 "magazine" card and probably never will because I can't see reading on such a tiny screen, but then I am not a "reader" any way. It would be cool to see a card that you can purchase music from iTunes with instead of this card. But overall I'm highly satisfied.
I really loved the package and what came in this for the price, but I put all of my music on the iPod and it stopped working a few days later. Only got to use it a couple of times. Very sad. Also, the earphones weren't noise canceling. Nice earphones, but I have kids, certainly not noise canceling had to turn the music up as loud as normal earphones before I couldn't hear outside noise. Oh well, guess it wasn't yet meant for me to have this iPod yet.
