Pros Light weight, compact, intuitive, and well built
Cons Scratches VERY easily, expensive, and uses I-Tunes only
Summary I had purchased this player on the I-Pod reputation alone and was disappointed to say the least. The I-Tunes program is stifling and doesn't allow you to do much, if you have an mp3 collection you MUST run them through I-Tunes to put them on the player(no drag and drop here).
I also have seen that others report that the units scratch easily (I was careful with mine), the unit did seem fragile to me.
For the price I paid for this unit I did not get much bang for my buck. Where is the FM Tuner? Where is the voice recorder? I am perplexed as to why Apple choose not to include an expansion slot on the Nano.
After about a week of use I decided this wasn't the player for me. I ended up buying the Sansa 250R which had everthing that I-Pod lacked ie...fm tuner, voice recorder, music channels, etc. This player was $50 cheaper, enabling me to pick some extra accessories, I am a happy customer! Overall the I-Pod is nice it just lacks features and lack of choice as far as how import tracks to the player.
Pros Small and compact. High storage capacity. Bright Screen
Cons Click wheel not as good as the first generation nano :( Looks more basic.
Summary I think that this nano is excellent! It has all you need to fulfill your music needs. The only thing that people go on about is the fact it does not have FM radio. Who cares? it is an MP3 player not a radio. Although do not let this put you off buying it. I like the way how it cannot get scratched or marked as easy. The alluminium body is very durable and could probably take a good hit before causing serious problems. The sound quality is great but the look of the headphones takes soom getting used to as they don't look like all the other iPod ones. The verdict: Buy it if you don't mind using software to transfer music to the iPod and like the look of it. Also I reccomend you get a case/sock for it as this will protect the body Official sock price is around £19 - $25 and unofficial ones are about £5 - $10.
iPod headphones have let me down big time as the left one blew and left me without a fully working pair of headphones. If you wish to have excellent, loud sound with a good bass level, I would reccomed you purchase the JVC Gumy headphones or better rated ones than the ipod 2nd gen headphones. JVC Gumy headphones - £7.99 - $15.00
