80GB iPod, Editors' Choice

PC Magazine has reviewed Apple's 80GB video iPod, rating the device a 4.5 of 5 and bestowing its Editor's Choice award upon the recently-refreshed portable media player. Apple's latest and highest-capacity iPod boasts enhancements over the previous model such as longer video battery life, game support, search capability, a brighter screen, and greater storage capacity. With a lower price, the highest capacity video iPod could use longer battery life for audio playback, as well as a built-in FM tuner and recording capabilities. Additionally, Apple could broaden the device's video-format support. Despite these shortcomings, Apple's 80GB iPod earned PC Magazine's Editor's Choice award for three reasons: the device features "very good music player features;" it integrates seamlessly with iTunes; and it offers "an elegant and simple design."
