Ipod has a law suit against them because the Nanos have defective screen coating. I'm not sure if that's a problem with the video Ipod too, but check before you buy one.
I think this lawsuit is as best shaky and a result of some bad apples mixed with people that don't know how to handle fragile equipment. Case in point, I bought a Canon SD300 camera earlier this summer and many reviewers "swore" they handled it with care, and yet the screen would crack in a matter of a couple weeks. Well I've had mine for a few months now, have a cover for it, have dropped it once too, and its working perfectly fine. I wouldn't put too much on this "lawsuit"
Read this review: The people ran over it with a car and it still worked!
To the OP. If you wan't primarily a video player, don't get the video iPod. There are better players out there like those from Creative and Archos that have bigger screens. I recently bought an ipod video because I'd been looking to buy an iPod, and the video capability was an added bonus for me.
