yeah.. that is a tough decision.. I'd say go with the phantom. Ipods will continue getting cheaper, plus there are tons of cheap knockoffs that are just as good.

well fo a 100 bucks it ain't bad the head phones were 30 and are nib he lost the reciept (sp?) so he can't return them.


the only reason i would get one is i can't find a job and i am almost wbroke so i can't pay for car insurance and the walk to the bus stop is kinda long, and music makes things better

iPods are really nice, especially the new generations. Old gens had some problems, but the new ones are freakin' sweet.

Still, that is a tough decision...On the one hand, I love having hundreds and thousands of songs on a device the size of a cell phone...On the other hand I have always wanted a Phantom.

I'd say which ever you will use more.

Yeah, that really is a great deal. I got a 2nd generation 10GB iPod for $170, refurbished from Apple.com. A 20GB for $70 less is awesome.

And I gotta tell you, I really do use my iPod every single day.

Of course you know whichever you get you will be wanting the other one.

^exactly. This is a limited time deal i bet. I love my 3rd gen ipod. I use it every chance i get. And 20gigs is a HUGe amount of storage, it just seems small. However, phantoms are keeping their value so they will always be ~$200 or more.

phantom. Phantom's don't have batterys, much less ones that die if you don't drain out the battery every charge.

Couldn't you just use rechargable batteries?

I would buy that IPod, then buy the Phantom. But that's just me.

Ipod > Phantom.

I listen to music around 12 hours a day, I LOVE music, I'd go with the iPod.
