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 7, which added enhanced video capabilities and new ways to view your music library. A cleaned-up left sidebar makes finding your music and videos a snap and the new Album and Cover-Flow view options let you flip through CDs in style. The built-in video player accomodates both your own files and ones you buy at the iTunes Store; right-clicking a clip lets you render it iPod-compatible. With the addition of full-length movies at the iTunes Store (Music is no longer part of the name), you can now view near-DVD quality movies at a resolution of 640x480. The experience of both purchasing and playing movies and videos is almost identical to perfoming the same actions with music, so seasoned users will have no trouble (with fast broadband, movies download in about a half hour).

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 Store. 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 7 should find a home on any media junkie's computer.

"Very good program and bundle. Needs more options and access to other stores."

May 24, 2007  |  By subzerohitman721

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1.1

Pros

Clean and simple interface. Organization mirrors WMP system. Flip album art system useful for visual minded people. Copy and burn system simple. Best sound equalizer currently available on media players.

Cons

Visualizer doesn't always match the mood of the music. Lacks some of the codecs that WMP 11 has. Ipod and Itunes locked to Itunes store only. Would like to see additional stores added. Limits Ipod to 1 and computers to 4. Would like to see multiple Ipod support added and computers bumped up to at least 5. Playback gets choppy in Vista. Itunes tends to be a sound resource hog, needs better support when other devices or programs use sound card or resources.

"Decent sound quality most of the time, but has a few flaws."

May 16, 2007  |  By Jrob8000

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1.1

Pros

I like the straight-forward interface and the arrangement/sorting of the audio and video media.

Cons

Ever since Version 7 of this software was released, playback has been choppy or distorted on occasion. This was true whether I ran XP or Vista but of course is especially noticeable in Vista. (Could also be attributable to lack of decent SB drivers available, but that is another story.) Have to use proprietary Airport Express to wirelessly stream protected AAC files to stereo. Visualizer has slowed and become choppy in V7.

"A bit slow in Windows Vista"

May 15, 2007  |  By bravadoca

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1.1

Pros

I've always liked iTunes. It's solid, never crashes, and the sound quality was good.

Cons

I find that music playback when running iTunes on Windows Vista is choppy at times. Not bad enough to not be able to listen to songs, but it's noticeable and it does it on every track. Every few seconds I would get a slight interruption in the song. Of course it could be due to the fact that I only have 1Gb of Ram on my system, which is the minimum system requirement for Vista Home Premium, though I had the same amount of Ram when using XP media center and didn't have that problem. I will be adding another 1Gb stick of Ram soon so I'll see how things pan out.

"Unresolved Windows Playback Issues!"

April 28, 2007  |  By the_jordan

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1.1

Pros

Easy to use interface, spiffy new browsing options (jukebox style with album covers), hooked directly into the store.

Cons

On many Windows-based systems the playback stinks... think about a dirty record or maybe someone rubbing your speakers with steel wool. If they ever resolve the issue, it'll be a great player again. Other problem, uses a lot more resources than 6 AND once you upgrade to 7 it is very much a pain to roll back to 6 (your whole library is converted).
