  Brilliant music device

| | See all benkernow's reviews (173)

iPod is the best thing to happen to music ever, especally after living through walkmans (1 tape and chews it up) and discman (you couldn't walk with it wit skip and and scratch your CD).
It's got a very good size you can fit up to 1,200-1,300 songs/podcasts so more than enough for a very good music collection (at least your good stuff) and your favorite podcasts.
It's when you start putting photo's and films on there it starts getting really full, but that's not a problem with the ipod. You can fit a movie on ther and have enough room for at least a 1,000 (prob. way more) songs/podcasts.
The picture is very good for your photo's and movies but don't expect it to be your next cinema but it's good for something to watch on a train/plane trip etc.
The battery is very good but can go fast(ish) if you keep the light going but it's not a problem (it can last for a quite a while), especally if you can recharge often (there gadgets to help you). Final thought the iPod is the best music system (personal or other wise, especally if it's got a docking bay) ever. You only need to go for a bigger size if you want something with a stupid amount of songs, podcasts, films, games etc.
The only problem I have found is it dosn't re-charge in certain docking station's, especally old one's very annoying, but I have got my money's worth out of it.
The only thing left to decide is if you want this colour or another.

  Great player, poor battery life

| | See all NostromSolid's reviews (6)

This sleek little player is a joy to use (as is every iPod) and is also very comfortable to carry around with you. It's so thin, you might thing it will brake in your pocket, but in fact it's quite durable. The only thing that I find annoying is that its battery life isn't so great and that you don't get a proper charger, except for one usb cable wich doubles for data transfer also. Cover flow looks nice, but practically it will turn on the backlight every time you turn your iPod around or throw it in your pocket wich will further decrease battery life, so you might like to turn it off. All in all a very good player, but Apple could spare us from the cost of buying new chargers. Even the cheapest mobile phone comes with one!

The look, the features and the alround personality of the ipod nano are amazing!
Wonderful displays and easy to use clickwheel are great for older people too! They look good, are light and extremely robust! (I dropped mine within 24 hrs of having it and not a scratch!)
Great games, you tilt the ipod to move a ball! Alot of fun!
Apple have yet again created the nano with more style then the previous models, a real winner for birthdays and christmas presents!! :D

  No Charge for New iPod Nano!

| | See all BananaMilk's reviews (1)

You're right that title is too good to be true.

This generation of ipod doesn't charge on non apple products such as micro systems, car fm transmitters and stand alone speakers with ipod docks. It will play the tracks fine but you get a nice little message on screen from the people at apple stating that it wont charge!

Tried it on various product that have no problem playing and charging all previous generations of ipod. Having recently purchased one of these lets just say that apple have left a sour taste in my mouth!

  How good is the 'New' Ipod Nano?

| | See all donkeyhead's reviews (2)

It's a good mp4, with worldclass technology, on that you would think I'd gaive it 5 stars but look at it how different does it look to some of the old ones...
