In my opinion Apple products should never ever get 5 stars. Why?
Number one is the Flash storage problem. If you buy a 16gb gadget thats it folks, you can't store more than 16GB. With SD card devices you can, and you can swap content very easily and its probably safer and easier to back up files. Number two is that its locked to iTunes, so if you don't like iTunes you are stuffed. Thirdly is the incompatibility and lack of supportr for Apple Lossless Files. MOST main stream media streamers inc Hi Fi ones don't support these files so if you want decent quality digital sound through your hi fi you are similarly stuffed. I'm not anti Apple at all, their innovation and marketing is to be applauded BUT it is a stand alone platform incompatible with anything else so it can't possibly be awarded that fifth star.
