I have a 30GB, the first gen that came with the video playback capabilities. I don't use it for that though, just music. I have somewhere around 100GB of music on my computer, so I just pick a heap of stuff that I feel like I might want to listen to and load that on. No problems yet (knock on wood). It's been dropped countless times, never carried in a case, the back has a couple of dints and it still works as well as the day I got it.
