iTunes for Windows

CNET Editors' review

Although iTunes has always been one of the best pieces of jukebox software available, the company improved upon a great thing with version 6, which added the much-rumored video capabilities. The built-in video player accomodates both your own files and ones you buy at the iTunes Music Store; right-clicking a clip lets you render it iPod-compatible. The experience of both purchasing and playing videos is almost identical to perfoming the same actions with music, so seasoned users will have no trouble. All the features we love from past versions are still intact, including seamless iPod integration, smart playlists, CD burning, label printing, the ability to rip files in multiple formats (except WMA), network sharing, and, of course, the enormously successful iTunes Music Store. By default, iTunes now adds a MiniStore to the bottom of your library, but you can disable it without much trouble. Rounding out the feature set are parental controls, integrated podcasts, and a smart-shuffle option. Whether you're already among the converted or have yet to try this top-notch player, iTunes 6 should find a home on any media junkie's computer.

    "Best music management program"

    August 16, 2006  |   By footballking3420

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    I've been using iTunes for years and it's the best out there for managing music. It's incredibly easy to add songs and create playlists. I can browse the songs by numerous catagories. I don't use the music store so I have no comment on that. I have an ipod and makes adding songs, podcasts, and album artwork to the ipod as simple as it gets. I highly recommend this to all ipod users and those who listen to music on their computer.

    Cons

    only problem I have is that it takes a lot of system resources. Though not a problem with my computer, but they could get it down a bit for others with worse computers

    "Stable & gets the job done but it can be slow at times"

    August 9, 2006  |   By troy272

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    Easy to use, very powerful, gets the job done. Even if you don't own an ipod, this program is worth getting, I only use it because I have an ipod mini but I really like it, it works well with the ipod and it's a great program.

    Cons

    You have to put files into a playlist to burn them, can take up alot of memory, ripping CD's can sometimes result in locking up of your computer.

    "It's Easy To Organize With iTunes"

    August 8, 2006  |   By Houndf

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    I don't have an iPod... I don't want an iPod (But if you give it to me for free I'll take it :D)... I don't want a Mac... I don't want to purchase music... But I want iTunes! With iTunes, problems I seldom face. When I have a new song or songs, all I do is select all the songs I wish to add and drag them into iTunes. If I need to add the artist name to them all, I simply select them all, Ctrl+I, and edit the artist info, and all of them change acording to what I changed. Easy playlist systems, good shuffle system, large selection of presets from the equalizer, customizing songs to sound there best is available... Easy CD burning (you can go to options and change the choice to burn MP3 CDs)... Easy to delete songs from iTunes and even have a choice to remove them from the computer. If you open up a folder, you can drag a song off of iTunes into another folder or w/e on your computer and places the file there. Also allows fullscreen display when watching videos (Unlike QuickTime)... Plus, It's Free!

    Cons

    Unsure whether you can add songs to MP3 players through iTunes, I couldn't... Also I have had trouble with ripping CD's onto my computer with iTunes (maybe it is just me though)...

    "Confusing; Requires Credit Card"

    August 6, 2006  |   By NickMets7

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    If you got an iPod, this is your only way to download AAC protected files.

    Traditional, "AppleClean" interface

    That's it

    Cons

    For me, I might be the only person who finds Sony's SonicStage Connect software the best thing out there; iTunes is confusing to use, requires your credit card, and like other applications of this kind just soaks up the resources like a sponge.

    "It's good, but has problems. You have been warned."

    July 24, 2006  |   By srr2

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    I use iTunes as a music organizer only. I do not download music from the store, or have an iPod. It works fine for this purpose.

    -Can burn, rip and play without problems -It has a nice GUI and good browser

    -It has a fast indexed search

    -AAC (or MP4) is smaller than MP3 for the same sound, but less popular/widely used. Don't expect to be sharing your music with friends, unless they also have iTunes. Then again, WMA is even less compatable.

    -Totally free, full version. No "Pro Edition" upgrades.

    Cons

    -iTunes will "organize" all your media files for you in its own bizare file structure that you cannot control

    -Works only with an iPod

    -Can handle only a limited number formats

    -Creates annoying background tasks

    -Installs Quicktime even if you don't want it

    -No Linux version

    "Awesome music tool"

    July 22, 2006  |   By enjoi_life23

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    I love this program. It keeps music in a nice, orderly fashion. This is what I use for my 10.5 GB of MP3s. Music Store is cool, you can use your credit card to buy songs for only 99 cents each. Also works as a radio, video player, and works great with the iPod of course.

    Cons

    Music Store takes awhile to load, even with fast internet.

    "It's a plus"

    July 18, 2006  |   By Mashdots

    Version: iTunes for Windows 6.2

    Pros

    Well, it looks nice, great sound quality, many preferences, quick search, easy navigation and many neat features.

    Cons

    Well, let's see here... it's bloated. It takes +41,000 k of ram to run. It can't play .wma files, video isn't so great. In the preferences, under the Advanced tab, the burn tab freezes iTunes when I try to activate it. Other than that, it's fine.
