Re: Any complaints about the 5G iPod?
I've got a 30GB model. I've only had it since Christmas, so I know little about the battery except that they've had some issues. The salesman talked my mother-in-law into buying the extended warranty.
If you're in a car, you can pick up a charger easy enough.
As far as video quality goes, I loaded The Audience Is Listening, which I got from Vai's site. It had the digital appearance in the first place, and it had the same digital appearance that you get with a downloaded video. I don't have anything else to put on the iPod to compare it to.
I'm not sure the 5GB model does video.
My only real complaint with the iPod is now I can't figure out how to get the video off it.
