    Small but powerful player

    This is really an amazing piece of electronics! How Apple put so much technology into such a small package is incredible. The sound quality is excellent once you replace the woeful headphones Apple supplies with the Nano. Unlike many people I prefer the very small 6th generation version. I bought it primary for exercising and it clips on just about anywhere without any trouble. Then you just rotate the screen so it looks rightside up to you to get to the controls. It also interfaces seamlessly with iTunes and syncs every time you connect it to your computer. It does use the battery pretty quickly but it takes almost no time to recharge when it's connected to the computer. Pictures on it are obviously very small but very clear. People I show my pictures to on it are amazed at how clear they are. Can't speak to durability because I've only had my for about 2 weeks but so far it's holding up fine. The only problem I've had with it is that sometimes the screen doesn't react when I touch an icon on it or go backward or forward when I swipe across the screen. This isn't really a major problem because you just swipe again and it usually works the second time. All in all this is an amazing device that I use very often!

    The 6th Generation iPod Nano is a great little iPod, perfect for everyday use, listening to podcasts (may I suggest MuggleCast, the #1 most listened-to Harry Potter podcast in America), listening to the radio (it even tells you the song and artist- at least for the stations I listen to), and even as a wristwatch (except that I wouldn't recommend it, because I would be afraid of scratching the screen). The 8 GB of memory are beyond sufficient for me. My computer recognizes it easily, and with a wall-charger-adapter-thingy, it's sooo easy to charge- and fast! I've had mine for a year and I still haven't had any problems with it. I would recommend this iPod for use at the gym, in the car, while cleaning, and during those boring business meetings (just make sure you're at the back of the room :))! Thank you, Apple! Next step, Macbook Air (for now, I'm stuck dreaming...)

    I absolutely love this ipod. Remember "NANO" means small not big. I have had the 1st gen nano and the 2nd gen nano. This is a great update. I like how easy it is to use and how it responds. Many people complain "look they took the camera off and the speaker and the video playback" . Really do you guys watch movies in a little 2.2 inch screen. The nano is the perfect companion for joggers and runners. This is a great update they also have a built-in clip now like Steve Jobs said in the keynote "No More Arm Bands Needed" Spt.1, 2010 Steve Jobs. This is a great update. I recommended it if you are a jogger or a runner.

    I recently purchased this MP3 Player after buying another smaller version without the touch screen. I use this MP3 Player on my motorcycle and found that I needed the touch screen display where the previously purchased one did not have. This player also has the abilitiy for you to change the song just by shaking it. Which is good that you dont have to push a button or have to look at the screen to change to another song...however when attached to my jacket I have hit a few bumps in the road that caused it to change while riding. Good thing I like all my music loaded so it really doesnt matter what is playing. I did purchase other more comfortable earphones as with all the standard sets provided in anything now a days they are just not comfortable and dont stay in my ears.

    Purchased for a non-techie

    I purchased the ipod nano for my 70 year old mom, who is an avid walker. She can use email on her computer, but is generally not comfortable with technology. My daughter set the device up for her, downloaded the iTunes software to grandma's computer and uploaded a few CDs to show her how to work the device. Now Mom is off and walking and loving her new ipod! The device is so small, yet the controls are very easy to use and intuitive, so that in no time she was able to master its use. The storage capacity is more than ample. We bought her an arm band for it, but the clip that is part of the device is a nice feature as well, and seemed sturdy.

    Great to work out with

    I have previously owned an 8gb video Ipod so the shift in size was a big change. However I do love the small size for when I go for runs as there it doesn't shuffle around when it is in my pocket and I do not need to spend money on what I think are awkward arm bands. What I dislike about the nano however is that it is really small, at least for a clumsy person like me I find myself dropping it often. I also find the touchscreen to be not extremely accurate, I would touch to play one song and it would sometimes pick another song to play.

    I bought this for my 50+ mother in law and she was able to set it up and download the music etc. without any help from us! Anyone who has used a computer at work on a daily basis would be able to use this device and enjoy music the same day as receiving it. It is nice and small so she can toss it in her purse. Not to mention this new Micro Ipod has an FM transmitter. That feature wasn't available on the older models (which I have). Personally, I am more of a FM radio listener than the type to dig out my personal music collection since the FM radio mixes it up for me. :)

    This IPOD was bought for an 11 year old girl, who absolutely loves it, and is thoroughly enjoying all its many awesome features, especially it's touch screen controls. I was pleasantly surprised that although it was a newer model, with different features, the price was not higher than past models because the MBs didn't go up (but she doesn't need more space than this right now.) When will more accessories come out for it?????

    Excellent Ipod! Space is great!(If you want more space you can just upgrade it to a 16gb) Lots of other colors for people who prefer a different color. You cant watch videos on it though, Just listen to them. If you cant afford a new model you can always get a refurbished model for cheaper. I have had mine for a year and It's like it's brand new.

    I wanted something that was not big and bulky like the iPod Touch, had the Nike+ options for my runs and walks, and I wanted something with a radio tuner. The Nano had everything I was looking for and the price was just right! This is the easiest portable player to use out there! The Nano is solid and rugged and the screen is easy to read. I would buy this again in a heartbeat!

    Bought 1 for my wife for her birthday in Sept. So far so good, about the only issue she has had was the learning Curve. Don't understand why so many complaints about not being able to Turn off the Nano!! All that is required to turn off is to push sleep button and hold in until it turns all the way off. Same to turn on, hold button until screen lights up. Just bought another for myself.

    The new Nano is great. It's very easy to use, the menu screen is customizable, and it even comes with a pedometer. I had the old shuffle with the same body design and the clip on the back was essentially useless. The clip on the Nano is much stronger though for running I still purchased a armband. I also bought a soft case and Bodyguardz case, all through Amazon for a very good price.

    Love the fidelity. Simple conversion of CD's thru iTunes and down to the iPod. Works great as a standalone with Sony earpods. Easy plugin with adapter cord to MP3 connector in late model car and thru a cassette player adapter in an older model car. Did back-to-back comparison of iPod and CD and the iPod sounded as good or better in both cars. Bought a small padded digital camera pouch which holds the iPod, earpods, and adapter cords easily and safely.

    This was a gift for my b.f... he wanted one to hook up inside his truck that was compatible with his stereo. I surprised him with this and he loves it. He didnt need anything too bulky, and honestly i didnt want to spend a bunch of money on a guy that i know that is rough with everything and might end up breaking anyways lol. So far so good! He has a ton of songs on it, and hes no monger asking me to burn him a new cd!

    I was really uncertain about purchasing an Apple iPod Nano for a long time, but I finally caved in and purchased one. I've had no regrets. The battery lasts quite a while, it's compact and extremely light weight, and very responsive. I've dropped it once and it didn't do a single damage to the Nano. I'm very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend it.

    I love taking my blue ipod nano out with me to go running, work out, or to just listen to music when I'm bored. Thus far, I have had no problems with using this device; however, I get nervous whenever I try to clip it onto something as you press down on the edge of the screen too. I'm sure that it's durable, as it has held up great so far.

    Doesn't hold as much as the Touch and it doesn't play video. But for running, casual listening, or as an accessory to the car stereo I love this iPod. Control is intuitive and quality of the audio output, the interface, and the physical product is incredible. I've never been a fan of the smaller iPods (Mini, Nano, Shuffle) but this one has changed my mind.

    touch screen works great and its so light works perfect when your working out and in your car. Love the clip for working out too! Great price 129.99 on sale. Color looks even better in person 2. Cool how you can make it into a watch if you buy the wristband accessory. Awesome buy!

    For those who have a campus to walk around on - this is the perfect product. Or even for just working out in the gym. No need to find a pocket space for it, or to buy an arm band. Just clip-it and go. Great apps and all that's included, and it is able to hold all the songs I want. I would recommend this to anyone.

    I didnt want to spend the large price tag for the larger ipod & 2,000 songs is perfect to start my 12 year old off with. It is small enough for him to carry in his pocket, so he doesnt loose it & he liked the blue color. Sounds great with earplugs that came with ipod.
