Aside from shortened battery life, my iPod Classic 30Gb is in excellent condition.
I inherited an iPod Nano 8Gb with very little usage. Works well except once in a while it kills it's battery when turned off... never found the cause and it's random...
Inherited an iPod Mini. Excellent condition but battery is toast.
Inherited an iPod Touch 8Gb from someone who attempted a jailbreak and couldn't get it to work at all or with iTunes. I revived it, it works great.
But yeah, the 160Gb Classic would have been great to get.
Now keeping an eye on what happens with the Pono and other SD card solutions out there, especially ones that play .ogg files. :-)
