The iPod Video 5th Generation is a classic clickwheel model that is no longer made. This iPod uses an audio DAC made by the Scottish company Wolfson, which puts it among those with the best sound quality of all iPods.
One of the issues with these older models is that the hard drives were mechanical which made them slow, prone to damage, expensive to replace, and battery hogs. This iPod has been custom upgraded to a new 512GB SSD or Solid-State Drive. A new battery with an upgraded capacity was also installed as part of the recently completed upgrade.
The device is used but has been fully verified to be 100% functional. As for the cosmetic condition of the device, it will show signs of normal usage. Please see the pictures of a sample device for an idea of the cosmetic appearance.
Benefits of Solid State:1) Unlikely to fail in the short-term.
2) Extend battery life by up to 12+ hours.
3) Will not skip from vibration.
4) Faster seek time.
IMPORTANT NOTE:The iPod software song limit is reportedly ~20,000 songs (not verified). In order to use the full storage benefit of the iPod, when the time comes, you can install a different operating system in the iPod instead of the limited operating systems available from Apple iTunes. RockBox is recommended which can play nearly any file format and you can organize the files in directories like a computer for faster navigation. This does not mean you cannot use the excess space as a portable external hard drive.
