"over priced poor quality"1.5 starson by non20
Pros: small and easy to use
Cons: sound quality, plug for changing, iTunes
Summary: The ipod shuffle is easy to use which makes this a good mp3 player for working. Unfortunately the clip that comes with the shuffle does not hold very strong and you are at risk of the shuffle falling off. The ear phones that come with the shuffle are not much better as they do not seem to fit most peoples ear (other friends have the same problem) the sound quality is horrible as you have to adjust the volume for each song that is played you really tend to either stop what you are doing or just wait until the next song. the shuffle only works with iTunes which requires QuickTime to be installed. Quick time is a slow loading application and you will defiantly notice a difference when starting your computer. One warning is that the pin on the charger will break and because apples warranty does not cover anything (all accidental damage which for some odd reason everything seems to be) you will be stuck either buying a new charger ($30 US) almost half the price for the shuffle or buy a new mp3 player. Also the battery does not last forever and apple will charge you if you want them to replace it (why not use AAA's). In my opinion I would have been better off spending my money on a mp3 player that uses (AA or AAA) then this otherwise like me you will end up with a useless piece of metal that may look nice.
