I bought the 60GB iPod Photo also, and my only complaint is that I bought 3 weeks before they unbundled it and dropped the price by $150. Other than that, I've been very happy with it, and do use it with photos -- it was great being able to store pics that I imported from iPhoto to it and could instantly show pictures of a vacation.
That all being said, I have minor complaints. One is with the headset and on-wire controls. The cord (unless you tie it off like I have) is WAY long and gets tangled quickly. And I wish the quality of the headset was just a bit better, though it's basically "ok".
I had an original 20GB Archos dating back to around 2001, which died at the end of '03. Replaced it with a 40GB Creative Zen, which was nice but the navigation and interface was horrible, and the included software for sync'ing was cheesy. This took me into a 40GB iPod last year and subsequently the 60GB photo this year. Having now had 2 of them, I wouldn't recommend anything else, and I plan on using mine for a long time to come. Anything that has become such a de-facto standard should cause others to wonder why they didn't make their devices as extensible and user-friendly as the iPod. It's a nice device that offers a lot of flexibility.
