Can we get some decent, unbiased reviewers please?
I remember the days, when reviewers had a code of neutrality, where unbiased facts and information was the norm.
Now, we get people like Dave, who are so Apple-biased it makes me wonder if he didn't develop a nasty rash after holding something other than an iPod... I mean...
"...is clearly gunning for the iconic iPod Touch..."
"...certainly lacks the grace and far-reaching capabilities of iTunes ..."
Those two comments look like they were spewed out by some Apple PR monkey. They don't belong in a serious, unbiased review.
"...33 hours of audio playback with nine hours for video, which puts it on a par with the iPod Touch."
Since shen was roughly 25 hours music, and 5 hours video on par?!!
And the Pièce de Résistance?
"But the Touch sound is perfectly decent, certainly decent enough to keep most music fans happy for most of the time."
That has got to be the most self-centred drivel I have ever heard. Most music fans != iPod owners. Many other players, most definitely including the 'X' is so far above the quality of iPod, it's like comparing Swiss chocolate, and that stuff candy mice are made from...
The review was factually incorrect in quite a few areas too. No mention of the Digital amp, weak bass (did you even turn the clear bass on??)...
Load of shite. I wonder how this review may have turned out had it have been the Apple iPod Touch II?
