    Yea, my eyes hurt watching a full-lengther on my iPod, but I really don't use it as a video player. It's just kind of a "backup" video player, if I don't have my Powerbook.

    Basically, it works for showing people funny videos, or watching a movie when you're bored, but it definitely should not be mistaken for a dedicated video player.

    The contrast ratio is pretty terrible, too. I can't even see half of Donnie Darko, because it's so friggin' dark.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Before I got mine I would have said yes. I've had mine for 5 or 6 months now and have to say no. The screen is just fine for watching Movies or TV shows on go.

    Just put it up on the sit-up bench and you can only see the movie on the up-rep.
