Thanks putente! Pretty sure mines got the battery changed out too

I'm seriously considering the Classic for the Fostex HP-P1. Last of the 30pin. Another 80Gb on top the 160Gb is appealing mainly because I don't want to shift music about much. When you use lossless even 240Gb isn't enormous. Considering Kingston just came out with a 1Tb USB stick, that would be great to have on an iDevice.

Yeah man you're totally right - I'm not there now but I'll need it very soon when I inherit a 1000+ cd collection from my uncle. The Kingston drive is amazing - I honestly wouldnt mind it on the back on any DAP, as long as it was there with my music.

Just think though, give tech companies another year and they'll be half that size and twice the storage. I would love to get a conversion kit to have it play nice with a Classic.

On a side note - after a days use with the 240gb, I'm finding the click wheel a little unresponsive. Anyone getting that I am I just too used to my older classic being so worn in?

The disc seems slightly slower loading info and hence the gui feels a bit slugish

Here's an update:

 

Just returned the iPod. The click wheel was totally unresponsive between the Menu and Next Track buttons (12 and 3 o'clock) rendering me unable to complete a full circle when browsing the iPod. I thought i could deal with it but then the HOLD switch conked out and now its not working :| 

 

On top of the fact that the GUI is a little slower than other people are reporting, I decided I wanted a replacement. 

 

It's been sent back and I'll let you all know if the replacement is an improvement.

Sorry to hear it didn't go without a problem. Thanks for letting us know about stuff like that too, I think some people would simply clam up. Did the iPod look new when you got it?

Yeah I notice there's a slight reluctance around here to talk about failed audio investments etc...

 

I wanna make sure people are informed. The seller has been very polite though, and has agreed to replace it with a new iPod and not just repair it. 

 

I take that you saw the photos :)

Hey NC, can you detail the "sluggishness" a bit so I can gauge if mine was just regular sluggish or more? (sometimes it would take 4-5 secs to load or respond after say, opening up the Playlist menu (500+ playlists) would cause serious lag. 

 

I couldnt tell clearly because the wheel was faulty but the scrolling and whatnot also seemed slow. 

 

NC8000 are you getting this?

 

 Anyone else?

The Chinese replacement click wheels all react like that, I replaced the one on my 5.5th Gen iPod video (Now 160gb) with one from eBay and it seems to have less "sensing contacts" and seems to get stuck specially on the left top part when scrolling.

Perhaps not as long as 4-5 seconds but yes, something like that. The more items in a list/category the worse. I have about 200GB or near 20,000 tracks on mine. My clickwheel seems to work fine
