    Product Details


    Decisions, decisions. Who needs them? Why should you have to choose what to put on your iPod? With up to 160GB of storage, iPod classic lets you carry everything in your collection - up to 40,000 songs or up to 200 hours of video - everywhere you go. In a completely new, even thinner, all-metal design, this iPod is a modern classic.
    If a picture says a thousand words, think of what all the album art in your collection might say. With Cover Flow on iPod classic, you can flip through your music to find the album you want to hear. Use the Click Wheel to browse music by album cover, then select an album to flip it over and see the track list.
    Use the Click Wheel to adjust volume, navigate songs, browse in Cover Flow, or explore the Music menu by playlist, artist, album, song, genre, composer, and more. Want to mix things up? Click Shuffle Songs. iPod classic makes your music look as good as it sounds, thanks to its big, bright, color display.
    Buy movies from the iTunes Store and you can sync them to your iPod classic to watch anywhere, anytime. The gorgeous 2.5-inch display makes your movies pop. And iPod classic keeps you entertained for up to 7 hours. Long flight or darkened room? Adjust the brightness for even more video playback time.
    There's always something good on iPod classic. Browse thousands of episodes of your favorite TV shows on the iTunes Store, buy them, then sync them to iPod classic. Watch last night's episodes this morning, or buy a whole TV series and play a pocket-size marathon.
    The iTunes Store features thousands of free video and audio podcasts, including indie favorites and offerings from such big names as ABC News, Comedy Central, ESPN, PBS, NPR, and many more. Browse and subscribe to podcasts, then sync them to your iPod classic. You can even play video podcasts on TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.
    The digital shelves of the iTunes Store are stocked with thousands of audiobooks - including exclusives like the entire Harry Potter series - so you can catch up on your reading wherever iPod classic takes you. iPod classic recognizes where you left off and bookmarks your place. You can even adjust the reading speed to suit you.
    Put hours of fun at your fingertips. iPod classic comes with three games - Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike - and you can download more from the iTunes Store. All iPod games are designed specifically for the iPod interface. And all of them look great on the 2.5-inch color display.
    iPod classic holds up to 25,000 photos you can sync from your Mac or PC via iTunes. Use the Click Wheel to scroll through photo thumbnails the same way you scroll through song titles. To see a photo full screen, click the center button. You can even view photo slideshows - complete with music and transitions - on iPod classic or on a TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.
    Calendars, contacts, and a clock appear in the Extras menu, along with a few more handy items. Take the screen lock, for example. Spin the Click Wheel to choose a four-digit combination and protect your iPod classic from prying eyes. If you forget your combination, just reset when you sync. Or use the built-in stopwatch to log your best times.

    Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Unlimited Music!! I was torn between buying the ipod touch and the ipod classic. Of course if you're planning on using your ipod for apps, internet and games then definitely get the ipod touch because the classic doesn't really have those features. I was looking for an ipod I could use as my portable music library and with 160 gb it certainly does what an iPod was meant to do! I'm happy with my purchase. I looked around many shops and did a lot of research before buying it and I recommend that you do that too in order to know if it's the right iPod for you. Asda sold the ipod classic the cheapest and it's the same quality. I'm thinking of buying another one for my dad's birthday :) 10 February 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent purchase I was buying an ipod for my husband, a joint Christmas and birthday present. We thoughjt the price may drop after Christmas but not only did it go up but it was sold out in many places. I really wanted the item before my husbands birthday, 16th Jan, and Asda came to the rescue. I ordered and paid on line and picked up the item on January 12th at the store just as they said. Everything went like clockwork and he is over the moon with the quality, look and performance. What more can I say? 21 January 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent, prompt, bargain!!! Well after searching everywhere I managed to find the I-pod classic at it's cheapest online at Asda. My girlfriends smaller memory I-pod had packed up, and as it was her birthday I thought this would be just the job. I was surprised how quickly it arrived. Ordered on the Friday, arrived on the Monday!!!! Well, she was mightily pleased. As she has a huge collection of music, movies and photos she can store all her music on it rather than just selecting her favourites. Well done Asda :-) 22 February 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by All my albums on the move Apples IPOD 160gb is not the latest MP3 player, and it does not have all the latest bells and whistles, it just does what it says on the box. Where the IPOD really comes into its own is capasity, i have fitted all of my albums anto the device, and can now play them on my home docking music station and in my car. In short a great device at a great price, only downside are the in box headphones, spend £30 on a new set. 26 February 2012
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Arrived promptly I bought this ipod as a replacement for another ipod which I own. Unfortunately, the new one is much larger than the one I already own (but looks the same in the photos because the proportions are the same). I couldn't be bothered sending it back to Asda because I needed it for Christmas parties but it is annoying! I guess that is the trouble with buying online. I've only given the product 3 stars for value because Apple seem to control retail prices everywhere and we all know they are not cheap. Can't fault Asda's service though. 02 January 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Deal Bought my Mum the ipod as a gift as I wanted to replace the previous one as she had filled up all the memory space. This one has alot bigger memory and has so fare worked very well. Having had an ipod for a while now am very impressed with it. However, some of the songs on an album do not get grouped together making it difficult to listen to a whole album without selecting the songs individually. 29 December 2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing buy I wasn't sure if I should go for an iPod because of the price but I have to say it was worth it. Great capacity, great quality and quick transfers make this the ideal for anyone who commutes. The fact that ASDA had it a bit cheaper than other places was a bonus too. My only possible problem with it would be the lack of a wall charger but these can be picked up easily enough. 23 February 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Wanted an ipod for so long, but didn't know which one to get. I'm so glad i decided on the classic. It was a lot cheaper than the touch and i wasn't looking for apps or anything, so it does the job. Loads of memory for all my music and photos and then some. It is a bit quiet through the earphones, but you can adjust this on the itunes settings. Overall a great purchase. 04 December 2012
