    I like it, but it's good as a music player only

    I really enjoy this little iPod. I got it to use during workouts because my iPod touch is to big and bulky. I've had it a month and so far it's serving its purpose well. It holds 8Gs of music, which is more than enough for me. You can find pretty much everything on iTunes, which is awesome. It has a pretty nice little screen, is very responsive, it clips anywhere and is ultra portable. It has good sound quality, but I do reccomend upgrading the apple earbuds. I like the size, it's perfect for an active lifestyle, but I'm a smaller woman and don't have big hands, so I can see how it would be to small for some people. The battery life is average, like on most electronics today. I use it for a couple hours 3-4 times a week and have to charge it twice a week. It does charge very fast when connected to my computer to. The downside, you can't watch videos, take pictures, or play games, so If you want more than just a music player, you'll want to look elsewhere. Which I'm sure will be a deal breaker for some people after the features the 4th and 5th generation nanos had.

    Awesome design that distinctly stands out apple

    Hi, I am not an apple fan nor use or buy apple product for myself because there are several things that I don't like about apple. But apple has good presence in Market which is why many people like it and I gift it to my family and friends. I bought this product for my mom because she likes to listen to music and I like the design. Its really nice to see such a small touch screen device that has pedometer, photo display, etc, Two things that stands out with this particular device, the first is Radio, yes the nano, in fact the apple product to have FM Radio is something nice to see. Since it doesn't have WiFi it makes sense to have Radio which is free to listen. Second thing I liked about it was watch. You can buy the wrist band and mount your iPod and it looks just like the watch, the only difference is you can have 12 different style suitable to every age group, except ladies ;), they don't want big watch. It's a great device with great feature in a compact design. I like it. Thanks, Yogi

    Although the Ipod sound is very good there are some features with the 6th generation I find annoying. The nano has a "automatic" battery saving feature that makes the screen go to sleep after 20 seconds. There is no way to keep it from doing this other than hit the wake button very often. The Ipod has allot of nice features including fitness items such as a pedometer. They were easy to set up and I use them often. The screen in difficult to navigate when working out especially if your hands are damp. The touch screen was not made for big fingers. I would suggest making some playlists when you need it to play for an extended time.

    I love this little I-pod. My husband got me one for Christmas and once he saw how much I was enjoying it and how much I ramped and raved about it, we went out and bought him one too. I found this device to be easy to use. I especially love the touch screen feature, I like the fact that it is very compact . I wish they sold a cover for it because I'm afraid the face will get scratched up. I am not a technical person and when I say setting up and downloading music (from I-tunes) is as easy as 1-2-3, I'm not exaggerating. This one is a keeper for me.

    Ok - but too small!

    Device worked well and has some cool options, but the size is just to small to hold. The size made it difficult to hold while using the features on the screen. Ended up bringing it back and buying the previous Nano. The previous version allowed for pictures and video, but the new version does not. Also, clip on the back seems too small to use on jeans pocket. Back to the drawing board Apple.

    Great MP3 Player!!

    The nano is awesome due to its size and weight. Working out using this product is great because you don't even realize its on your body because its so light. However, make sure you don't misplace it because it won't be easy to find. There are a ton of features on this device although you probably won't use any of them but its cool to know they are there. There are cheaper alternatives which provide a similar experience so the exclusivity of this product is not really there. However, I would definitely recommend this product to you and my own friends.

    Only a MP3 player, but good

    The newest ipod lacks the features that the old ipod had, like the camera and games. But, I think it's good because it is simple and unlike other apple ipods, it is only used for listening to music. If you like games and going on the internet, this product is not for you. But if you don't care about the features and only care about music, this product is definitely for you. The thing that I don't like about this ipod is that it has a short battery life. But overall, it's good.

    READ THE PACKAGING WELL

    I made the mistake of assuming that the ipod 6th generation would have video capability since it came with a fully functional screen and apps. It sadly does not. Now I have spent almost $200 on an item that strictly plays back music. Be sure to read the packaging well if you want an ipod that plays video. Its small size was a major contributing factor to my purchase, but it wasn't until I purchased a video on itunes that I found out it will not upload to my ipod. It just sits in my itunes library, totally useless. So beware!!!

    Because of its size this player is perfect. I have used it while doing just about everything. Running, exercising, riding, fishing, racing, hopping, skipping, and jumping. One thing to remember is to buy a case for it. One fall to a tile floor and the touch screen is broke. At least that's what happened to mine an hour after I got home with it. I thought fixing it would be a hassle but the guy at the apple store just swapped it out no questions. So yeah its groovy.

    Bought iPod nanos for both of my kids for Christmas. They love them! Once I got the iTunes software to download on my PC (a little more complicated than I expected), the rest was easy. Now putting music on their players is no problem. My kids use these as if they've had the players forever (so intuitive). My kids are 12 and 10, to give other parents an idea of age appropriateness. Also gave them iTunes cards, so they can choose music from the store (with supervision, of course).

    won't get in the way during a workout!

    I love it because it is small, has touch screen capabilities, and has its own clip to allow you to fasten it to various parts of your body depending on the exercise you are doing! I don't care about the 8GB because who really listens to all their music during a workout. This is a must have if you like to listen to your music as you workout. I do not recommend for a general mp3 player to carry all your music because obviously it cannot.

    Sound Quality is more than expected.

    Posted
    Patandorjean

    I have never owned an MP3 or an I pod because I was sure the sound quality could not match my stereo or my expensive speakers. I can play my Nano in my car stereo, through my stereo and on my television surround sound system or take it with me while I run. I can not comment on the battery life other than to say it it sufficient as most times it is charging while playing except when I run.

    Ipod nano touch screen seems inconsistent

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    My ipod mini was creating static on my speakers so I got a new ipod - the nano was the cheapest from Best Buy. Synch'ed with iTunes no problem and it works fine except I have trouble with the touch capability to start and pause a song. Maybe my fingers are big or something but it sometimes takes a couple tries to get the touch interface to respond correctly.

    I do like the size, and only wish it had the recording ability of previous models for recording voice memos. The Touchscreen seems to not accept inputs or movements sometimes, but overall I do like it. The attached built in clip is also a nice feature so I can use it without any type of arm band or belt holster or accessory clip/case.

    A great sound, easy to use, you can clip it in your cap or your shirt to walk around. The radio mode is veru usefull too. A con is that the watch mode goes off in a few moments, so it is useless as a wrist watch since you have to push a button every time you want see the hours.

    This was purchased for my daughters boyfriend for Christmas. The sound quality is pretty decent but it takes some getting used to trying to juggle from menu to menu and trying to pick songs because of it's size. Big fingers make it a little hard to manuever but overall, still a great product

    Overall awesome product, great for running hooks up to my car. Wish the ear buds plugged in right side up makes it kind of a pain you either have to look at it upside down or keep catching earbuds on arms while running. But overall great product Love it

    I've owned the new Nano for just over a month now and am definitely pleased but now blown away. I like the size and portability and the touch screen is easy to use. The FM radio is a nice feature but it does drain the battery much faster.

    Great MP3

    I love this MP3 for the fact that its very light weight and i can go running or workout with it. I also like that fact that its touch screen and has a clip. The clip is useful for when i run, i can just clip it on to my shirt.
