iPodlounge has released its free iPodlounge Buyer's Guide 2004 report in PDF format, including an exclusive review of the iPod Photo.

The publication includes in-depth reviews of every model of iPod. It also offers advice and hands-on reviews of a slew of leading iPod accessories, previews of forthcoming products and short reports on over 200 iPod-related products.

The guide also features the art and photography of iPodlounge readers from around the world. The site - among the first-ever iPod-related sites to launch in the world - has always encouraged its readers to submit iPod-related images and artwork.

In an innovative move in music-related publishing, iPodlounge is encouraging readers to make the guide available through file-sharing networks. "We are providing it for free online and taking mass advantage of file-sharing networks to spread it around the world," the company said.

The 4.5MB download is available now.
