The battery life on mine was ****ty. Just to watch a TV show would use up half the batter. That, and I hate staring at that tiny ass screen. Mine was a gift, but if it were up to me, I would be fine with a scaled down version. It's nice to have that many GB's available for music, though.

Yeah I have a 60GB but rarely actually use it for videos. Its OK but the screen size just makes it a bit annoying to try and watch for more than a couple of minutes.

instead get a psp with a 4gb with a good firmware(hacked fw) unless you have one already

it takes the same amount of time to get the videos in the psp as it takes in an ipod video

I bought the 80 gig iPod video 8 or 9 months ago and it was one of the best investments I ever made.

Whoever said it takes half the battery to watch a TV show probably had one of those cheap knockoffs made in the Phillipines.

I can usually get through about 3 full length movies before the battery dies. And when you're playing music without the backlight you can get 20 hrs easily.

Only knock is it's kind of old. You might just want to wait 6 months cause I bet Apple will release something new.

I got mine at walmart. It's not been very good to me, despite my best efforts to take good care of it. The battery died not even a year after I purchased it.

Which one was it? And I thought it was a gift, so how did you "get it at Wal-Mart"?

I live in a small town, so there really nowhere else that I could've gotten the gift from

The nearest mall is about an hour away, so it's a process of elimination as to where the gift came from.

BTW, it was the 30 GB one
