I have had my iriver h340 mp3 player since last summer. However i am sorely tempted by the ipod photo 60gb mp3 player. Had a play with one today and i was so very nearly unleashing my credit card !!!!
I am not sure if i would be making the right decision to dump i river and join the ipod revolution. It seems to me there is alot more accessories and support for the ipod than there is for the iriver. So can anyone advise me as to whether i should buy the ipod photo 60gb or not?

as if you've really made up your mind anyway, and all you want is someone to help you over the credit-card hurdle.

I think we all know that feeling, so yes, I believe you should buy that iPod tomorrow, if not sooner.

You can send me the iRiver as a reward for being so helpful - I'm not proud.

major omission in ipod photo design

it should have a build-in memory card reader slot to copy photo directly from camera memory card such as SD card

I've got a 60GB photo iPod and it's fantastic. Lots of fab accessories - and if you want to get pictures from a digital camera on to it get this doohickey:

I too am mighty tempted by these new iPods - so there may be two winging their way to the Wirral!

By the way the Apple Store is doing them at a reasonable price and with free delivery and free etching. If you are a student they are even cheaper!

in that if you're a teacher/educator/student, you get 10% off as long as you show them you work for an educational establishment. It's not quite the same as the dirt cheap software MS offer, but 10% is 10%, especially as prices are pretty constant...

oooh ! I have the Nikon D70 as well !!! That's torn it !!! Am gonna have to get this now...

Only one thing you have to watch and that's that the 60GB one is a little thicker than all the others and doesn't fit in some cradles etc.

Hi there,

I am also thinking of buying an iPod 60GB Photo. I heard someone mention that i could get a student discount, but i couldnt find anything talking about a student discount on the website.

Please could someone tell me how to get this student discount?

Thanks!
