"Not worth it, there are better mp3 players."0.5 starson by caliaa
Pros: It does look good. Cheap (but not worth it)
Cons: Cheap, still it's not even worth the price. NO FEATURES AT ALL
Summary: I don't understand why people seem to buy the shuffle only because it's an apple product.
Don't buy this thing. It does look cool but there are better mp3 players but actual functions.
The sound is not that good.
For the absolutely lack of features, the unit should be smaller.
The battery life is below average.
No support for ogg, wma, flac.
Sometimes you MAY want to see the name of the song.
There are so many mp3 players one can get for a better price with many more features. If you wanna buy the shuffle only because it's apple, fine, it's your money, YOU CAN OVERPAY.
If you want to compare products, please do so. Keep in mind that some mp3 players (not the shuffle):
Can play more formats (mp3, wav, ogg, wma, flac, etc)
Have FM radio, some even AM radio too.
Have Line-in/radio/voice recording (you can record music from a tv, disc man, tape player, directly into mp3)
Have a screen
Have lyrics support
Some mp3 players that cost the same as the shuffle can hold the same amount of music, cost the same as the shuffle, shuffle and have many more features. Why overpay for this piece of crap?
