Apple Computer Inc Complaint - The worst iPod yet? You betcha
I bought an iPod classic in November, and to this day has been the worst consumer electronics I have ever had the misfortune to own.
Not only is the thing dead slow, the sound quality is equally horrible (try listening to a melodic song on it), and this completely and utterly strange menu system where you have half a screen with your options, then the other half is filled with floating artwork. The screen scratches very easily which could be due to the new glass being used, and the fibres inside as well as the back - it looks like I tried to rub a toothpick against it. Songs are stopping at any given time and cutting out and distorting - ripped from expensive CDs, not downloads - and will suddenly stop syncing with iTunes because it can.
While we're at it, try turning the volume down. Doesn't work, does it? How about trying to keep the album artwork on there - it disappears to god only knows where, and worst of all was this was all denied to happen by the Apple customer service representative I was told to upgrade my firmware more times than I've had hot roast chicken dinners in the last four years, and then got a survey to say what I thought. What a nice afterthought. Worst of all, I own one.
