Pros Physical size, clip, battery life
Cons Memory, pricey for what you get (but the small form factor is worth it)
Summary I was in the market of getting a new MP3 player for my workout sessions. I have an iPhone, but I didn't want to use it while exercising, so the Shuffle fit my bill. It's perfect. It's extremely portable, it looks good, and it's durable.
Pros lightweight, easy to use, compact, simple design, in expensive.
Cons unit only has a lifespan of about 3 months.
Summary PLEASE!!! Save yourself the time and aggravation. Do not buy!! I originally purchased one and it died a few months later. I lightly used it and did not abuse it. I recharged it when needed, etc.. Because of its price I purchased a second one but this time with an extended replacement warranty. I now have 3 Ipod shuffles that do not work. The software has been updated, have had light usage, they just dont work. When they were new they would notify you that the battery was getting low. Now right after a full recharge the unit will play then just stop with no warning.
Pros The controls are back, voiceover, podcasts, genius, battery status, has a menu
Cons Memorys more to be desired
Summary Despite the memory, this is the best iPod shuffle yet.
Pros tiny, easy to use
Cons poor quality and durability
Summary Same experience as capt1231. The ipod stopped working after 3 months. Even though the unit was only 3 months old, Apple refused to look at it unless I allowed them to put a $60 hold on my credit card. Very bad customer experience...
Apple makes cool products but they are just not reliable ...
