Our household has purchased 4 iPods - 2 were dead within a year, one that is barely over a year is on the verge of dying. The other is only a few months old but I suspect it will only last a year. Sadly, the 4th one is a video ipod which now I am wondering why I bothered if it's only going to last 12 months? After reading over the other complaints it seems we are not alone. One would expect that after spending $300 on a product you'd get 2-3 years out of it. I hope Apple comes up with a good recycle plan for these since they seems to be disposable.

I used my ipod on Friday and it was fine. I went away for the weekend and didn't use it or even touch it the whole time. I tried to listen to it on Monday and the sound was extremely distorted (it wasn't the headphones). I bought it in April 2005 for $250 after saving for it for 2 months. I brought it to the Apple store in the mall (Aug 10, 2006) and the guy told me that the problem is 'mechanical'. They don't fix mechanical problems and since my warranty is up that the only option I have is buying a whole new one for 20% off if I 'recycle' my old one. Doesn't that mean that they take it, fix it and resale it?

So why not just fix mine to begin with? I had a 1500 song mini, but now they only have the 1000 song nano or a leap to 7500 song ipod. I fill my 1500 ipod every few months so I would have to buy the regular ipod at $300, with the discount being $240 (very close to what I paid originally). Plus, I'm in college. I saved all that time to buy the first one, I can't throw away that kind of money again just for it to break in another year and a half. So... I spent $250 on an ipod that didn't even last a whole year and a half and the only thing I can do is trash is and buy a new one? Sorry, but I think they could do better then that.

I have an iPod mini that I sent to Apple to repair. I got an email 3 weeks later telling me that the problem is not the battery and it will cost $205 to fix.

Thomas of Quakertown, PA (08/10/06)
I purchased an Apple iPod on June 12, 2006 for $317.99 and on August 6th it would not work (after setting by itself overnight). I called Apple and had a rep go through a series of questions to analyze the iPod. His help did not get the product to work so we arranged to have it picked up to be replaced by the Apple manufactures warranty that is for 1-year.

I checked the update status on August 9th and they had already looked at it. They claimed it was not covered under the manufactured warranty because there was a huge dent on the back of the product, that voided the warranty. First thing: the product did not have a large dent in it. The product did have a small indent on the back that I got from trying to use their docking system. Second issue: the product stopped working over night while setting on a computer desk,so it had nothing to do with physical damage.

I was told I had two options - just take my broken product back or have them send me another one at a cost of $250! This is totally unacceptable to me.

ipods are the market leaders so id say theyre pretty good. a nice little piece of hardware is what youll have should you purchase an ipod, all shiny and white like spunk, more or less. from my experience with the seemingly flawless ipod it was a joy to hand to my friend, im not sure what he did with it but within seconds music was cascading into my ears and through my entire body, nay!, through my entire being. bringing me unparallelled joy and empathy. thats the kind of feeling that comes standard with ipods but sure if youre like Laura of daly city CA, who im pretty certain is a complete fabrication, and want an mp3 payer that works go ahead get one but let me tell you this; from what ive heard on one website, not even related to ipods, do not under any circumstance get an ipod. theyre useless spunk tasting pieces of shit, youd be lucky if it lasted through the tedious introdution skit of a gangsta rap album theyre so shoddy. i even heard that some crybaby saved up money for an ipod only for it to break for no reason at all, he just left it unattended in his house for like two seconds and when he came back KABLAMMO ipod?, more liek ishod..dy. sure he has twenty eight pet orangutangs and lives in a sunlight exposed wet environment but jesus he SAVED up for it. can you imagine how that felt? that guy had to visit his mother in hospital the next day and when she asked him how his ipod was do yuo know what he had to say to her? nothing because she died before he could answer, thanks a fuckin bunch ipod
