Pros Amazin' sound, simple to use, feather light, bright screen, good battery life
Cons might feel might feel too light for some(I feel that if I drop it it might shatter into pieces) Black smudges easy, but it's easy to clean
Summary I had a Dell DJ Pocket before this and it was great. The problem is that the volume button broke... So I had the difficult task of finding a new MP# player, since Dell doesn't sell the DJ anymore and my warrenty finished.
The search. I actually bought 2 MP3 players before getting this one, but they didn't work too well because they work with programs that i needed to update, but I wasn't able to. Out of the two the Creative Zen Micro was the best. It has great sound quality so if anyone is looking for somethig other than an iPod (like I was) go for Creative.
The answer. After not being able to use both player with my computer I had to get an iPod. This is one spunky player. I'm happy that it is flash because towards the end of my DJ's life it started skipping frequently. The screen is bright and can be used as a photo viewer. The sound quality blew me away. The bass is very rich (I listen to a lot of latin music which is rich with bass) and everything is clear. The menu is very easy to use, unlike the Toshiba Gigabeat, which I had for a few days. It's light, so it might feel delicate to some people. It also smudges easily, but it's easy to clean. So, as a few final words, I really hate going with the latest trends, but for this one time I'll go with it. If you want an alternative go with the Creative Zen Micro one of the only players that can actually rival this one.
Pros Good sound quality, great screen, very nice looking, good features
Cons Battery isnt great, no FM tuner
Summary This product is amazing, It looks awesome, great sound quality, good quality vibrant LCD screen, very easy on the eyes, easy on my pocket(moneywise). It's true that the face of this 1GB unit is indented, but its not a bad thing, I didnt notice it after a day of use. The battery life I am not happy with, advertised as 14 hours, I only get 8 hours with the EQ on, bass booster on and the backlight set to 2 seconds and the volume at middle. Only one more problem, is that there is no FM tuner, its not a big problem, but it would be nice having one(i can just get the radio remote). The headphones are great! They stay in my ears, they have AWESOME sound quality and they are lightweight with a long cord. iTunes is quite easy to use once you get the hang of it, I have 122 songs and 16 photos and 266MB free space. The games are very entertaining and I zone out when im playing them All in all for the price, this unit is awesome, i LOVE it and would suggest it to anyone.Hope this helped.Updated
I used to get 8 hours battery life, but for some reason it has improved to about 13 hours. I can't explain it but I'm very happy about it now, it lasts me almost 2 days now(Not non-stop)Updated
Well, I thought this was great for awhile, but then I started noticing other MP3 players that are the same price or less then the nano but with more features. I am intrigued by the feature of video on an mp3 player. I'm keeping my nano until ("It breaks") but I'm planning on buying a PSP since they have such great features and they are about the same price as a video iPod with games, movies, memory card etc.
"Music on the go"on by cgramer
Pros Very small, great sound, plenty of EQ settings, photo viewer
Cons Small capacity, no video playback, now-dated interface
Summary The 1GB iPod Nano looks and sounds great and is extremely pocketable for listening while walking or running (or any other outdoor activity).
The only major issue I have with it is its limited storage capacity. If you usually rip your CDs at high bitrates, you won't be able to store a whole lot of music on the 1GB version. However, if you're more interested in listening to podcasts or audiobooks while commuting, the 1GB model is just the ticket.
I also didn't like the earbuds that came with the Nano. It wasn't a matter of sound quality, but rather that I couldn't get the earbuds to stay in my ears. I haven't tried the more expensive in-ear earbuds yet, so I generally use more traditional over-the-head headphones, and the Nano sounds great, delivering loud, clear sound that's adjustable to just about any particular headphones thanks to its many EQ presets. (I use the "Classical" EQ setting on my Sony Walkman "acoustic turbo" in-ear headphones.)
Viewing photos on the Nano is easy and the colors are bright, though the small screen makes looking at photos a less-than-enjoyable experience. And this 1st-generation Nano doesn't play video at all.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with my Nano for what it is, and plan to upgrade to either the iPod Touch or maybe a 3rd-gen Nano within a year or so (or maybe a 2nd-gen Touch or 4th-gen Nano by then!).
Pros No more carry CDs,it is small and it looks good
Cons The LCD is too small
Summary I like my ipod nano. I got it when it first came out so it's only a 1GB. I like the fact that it is fully compatible with my mac and I don't have to ever fuzz about putting music....my mac and ipod are like hand and glove.
Pros Size, ease of use,
Cons Scratches easily, freezes periodically
Summary The ipod nano is great for anyone who is active. It is a great tool for anyone who loves music and is on the go. This is nice for T rides into and out of the city, or for rocking out at your desk at work.
Excellent purchase. Great as a gift too.
