"Beautiful design through-and-through"4.0 starson by 38t
Pros: Interface and chassis looks great. Screen packsthe pixels in, and it's video capable. Intuitive interface, 8GB, Coverflow is fluid, though not fast, sound quality is nice, plenty of 3rd party stuff
Cons: Chrome back scratches EASILY, comes with nothing preloaded, propietary cable and software (iTunes), no FM radio or voice recorder, missing custom EQ
Summary: Bought the new Nano after being turned off by an older model Zune, and I've liked it right out of the box. iTunes isn't my favorite for music, since my WMA's are now some new format, but it's clean and easy to use. Same can be said for the player, once I put music on it. It sounds "punchy", album art looks good on there, though I've had some problems putting it on, but that's a complaint with iTunes. I've babied this thing, but there are still scratches on the back, so a case is a must have, but the front is tougher, the screen is yet to show a scratch, and pictures etc...look excellent. The click wheel is easy to use, though the middle button is a bit flimsy. Using a propietary cable sucks, but at least its supplied. The headphones it comes with are above mediocre, but there are better replacements. I like the colors offered, I bought a black one. I'd recommend anyone to get one as long as they like iTunes and not drag-and-drop mp3s, and if they don't mind getting a case to protect it. Also, I just bought a car stereo, and guess what? It's compatible with my iPod, I can control the songs through the deck, I'm really impressed with the amount of 3rd party accessories for this thing.
