Top 10 questions to ask before buying a Used iPod
When it comes to used MP3 players, the Apple iPod is definitely the dominate force in the industry. There are five amazing models to choose from, the iPod Classic, iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Mini, and the remarkable iPod Touch. Finding a used iPod for sale at an affordable price that also matches your personal music needs is simple with the help of our easy to follow tips.
Finding popular iPod models like the iPod Touch is pretty easy but finding collector or specialized iPod models like the U2 special Edition or one of the first iPod Classics with the scroll wheel can be rather cumbersome and expensive.
One important thing that people tend to forget when buying a used iPod is whether or not it includes all the accessories that came with the unit when it was originally sold. You should make sure your used iPod comes with an A/C charger, ear buds and USB or FireWire cable. All these items are very important but the number one item that is usually forgotten is the USB cord. Without it, you will not be able to download music to your iPod.
Additionally, many used iPods for sale come with some sort of belt clip or something that allows you to attach the unit to yourself. It is important that the above items are included with your purchase. If you have to buy any of these items separately it will negate any bargain that you may have received.
When buying a used iPod from eBay, ask the seller about the condition of the used iPod. Ask if there are any significant signs of wear or scratches on the iPod that can not be seen in the pictures. Sellers (although usually honest) will post pictures that show the best view of the item. Ask the seller why he or she is selling their used iPod. This may give you some insight as to an option or two on a newer model that you may also want.
Make sure you always buy from a seller that has a 98% or above rating.
Ask if there is any warranty left on the used iPod and whether or not the seller has a return policy.
Keep all correspondence and questions within eBay’s message system, so there is a record of all conversations. If you have everything in writing, eBay is great at protecting the buyer. (NEVER use your own email address.
When looking for a used iPods for sale…Which used iPod should you buy?:
It’s pretty simple! If you want to store a large amount of songs, I would purchase a used iPod Classic. It can hold an AMAZING amount of songs and has up to 160gb’s of music storage. If you are looking for something rather small, something you can take when you’re jogging that’s easy to conceal and operate, then go with the Shuffle. If you want to store less than 1000 songs and are looking for something very affordable, then a used iPod Nano is an excellent choice. If you want the Grand Daddy of them all that can surf the web, play music, play games, apps, MySpace, YouTube and a whole lot more… then a Used iPod Touch is the best choice for you.
