CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
Despite its flaws, iTunes is still one incredible media player. While there are other quality players on the market that offer the same capabilities, most have a free version with the CD burning and other essentials stripped- you have to buy the “premium version” to have these features enabled. Apple includes them all, at no charge. Plus, the sound quality is excellent, soundly (no pun intended) beating the other players on the market.
However, the price you pay is in the proprietary format restrictions and DRM. While I find iTunes to be one of the best music players available, I cannot recommend iTunes as a viable all-in-one media player.
- Great sound quality
- Ease of use
- Lots of features
- iPod-only transfer
- No purchased DVD burning
- Tag editor needs work
