Pros Small form factor, Great Sound, Wear-ablility
Cons None worth mentioning
Summary This is the iPod you want when you're out running or in the gym. The sound is pretty much as good as the big boys and, when married to the itunes software, gives you a decent selection of your favorite tunes to move to. Great batter life, easy to use and inexpensive to boot. Nothing even comes close to this model for what it is supposed to do. They should have called it the "iPod Sport".

Cons Where do I start?
Summary The Shuffle does not sync with my PowerBook. Sometimes, the Mac can't find it, and other times, when it is connected, it complains about not being able to find the "hard drive." It's slow, and the sound quality is poor. All around, the lamest thing ever.
Pros Price, Just $49 Dollars. Size, Barely even know its there.
Cons Ummm..............They Got Rid of Orange
Summary The iPod shuffle is the perfect device for anyone riding there bike, going to the gym or just an iPod that is small and lightweight. When i First opened the iPod, the size was breathtaking. It was tiny, and I loved hopw when I hooked the ipod into the CPU using the included Dock, iTunes immediately asked me what I wanted to do.
A. have it Autofill my iPod using randomo music form my library
B. Autofill from a selected playlist
C. Manual drag and drop the songs I wanted on there.
I made a playlist and synced my iPod up That was it. I clip it to my shirt when I go to the Gym and thats all she wrote. I get a solid 12 hours to a charge and recharging it is quick and painless. The ipod seems well built and doesn't feel like something you could crush in your hands.
Overall, the perfect budget iPod.
But, why did they get rid of Orange?
Pros Tiny, built in clip, decent storage capacity, and tactile buttons, great battery life, and a nice led indicator for status.
Cons Sound quality is so-so, lack of screen makes remembering if it's off difficult.
Summary Best portable player I've ever owned
Pros Great for Gym, Bike, Jog, etc.
Great for People who just want music
Cons Decent Sound (with included apple earphones)
May get lost
Songs are best on shuffle (unless you want to memorize the order)
Summary It's an okay product. Planning to buy one for my mom. Good for gym, bike, jog, etc.
