I ordered my iPod Nano MP3 player on release date from www.apple.com. I knew I was taking a gamble. I had just got an iPod Mini 4 weeks earlier, and it already had a damaged hard drive. 1 Week later I got my Nano from the UPS guy, and I have been happy ever since I got it. My only gripe is the games get old fast, but that is easily fixed with iPod Linux. Linux allows Gameboy games, NES games, and arcade games to be played. It can also play Doom. Also, you can only read text files that are under… Read Full Review

My iPod Nano is white, but it is still 4Gb. I got mine as a replacement for my old Mini, because I liked the way the regular iPod's look, and I got it at a good price. I have a relative who works for Chevron. Yes, the big oil company. They get a discount on all Apple products, so I had my relative buy it for me using his discount. Instead of $250, it was about $234. It is not a huge discount, but I liked it better than $250. Talk about big oil perks!!! lol… Read Full Review

I'm now going to add to what I wrote yesterday and that is I took my iPod Nano back and apparently it was corrupted! I've got no idea how this happened as it played ok when first bought it but I have heard of this happening so was glad it was nothing that I'd done. The store exchanged it for me and I'm now in the process of charging it up,so watch this space… Read Full Review

Apple iPod Nano - I chose this player as after reading all the reviews on here, thought it seemed the best-what a mistake! It seems that those who have written reviews haven't perhaps downloaded any updates as they haven't mentioned them?
It's not the actual player at fault but the updates which wipe everything off your player, then find iTunes can't or won't recognise your player. This means I now have an empty player and incompatible software due to their own updates! I'll never again… Read Full Review

I got my Apple iPod Nano as a reward for signing up with Telus. A tip for you ipod owners who complain about finger prints, take a pinch of baking soda, and rub it on the prints. They are gone! Your ipod has less scratches and is super shiny. Just dont get it gunked in the click wheel! I only have about 20 songs on it as of now, but they are all in raw format; There's no need to copmpress them with 2 gb of space! All my music sounds great, so long as i'm not using apple headphones. I have had a… Read Full Review

The ipod nano is a great little mp3 player. It's light and stylish being only as thin as a pencil!!! The 3 models (the 1GB, 2GB and the 4GB) are worth the money. The software you load onto your computer is easy to use. So get out and get a ipod nano!!!!… Read Full Review

The Apple iPod Nano is ok but really really really bad battery life. The cover is not good because it scratches really easily but heaps of different things. The battery life really lets it down… Read Full Review

I got an iPod Nano about two months ago now and was impressed straight away. Came with all the stuff you needed to start off with it, could have come with an extensioner for the headphone lead but apart from that, no complaints. You get a lead for the pc so that you can transfer the iTunes music straight away over to the Nano, but this is a bit fiddly, however, I am not willing to pay nearly twenty quid for a Dock. You also get the trademark Apple headphones, however, these only come in… Read Full Review

I opened the Apple iPod Nano box and ofcourse it was love at first sight. Who could not love the smallness and smartness of the ipod nano! From its shiny body to its amazing screen, it really impressed me although I knew what to expect as my friend had had one for a while now and I was totally jealous.
Basically, music quality is brilliant, everything you would expect from an Ipod.
I did notice that it was extremely easy to get the ipod grubby. Just holding it for the first time can take away… Read Full Review

I got my 4 Gig Nano for christmas and I was very happy with it. It looks fantastic, you can hardly tell when its in your pocket and a bit more gimicky than the normal ipods.
The sound quality is second to none and it will go really loud, but the headphones won't, my OEM headphones only last a few weeks, and my the left earphone never worked properly anyway.
The most amount of time I have had from the battery is 7 hours from full charge to flat. But because of its size I can accept this! The… Read Full Review

Having first seen the iPod Nano MP3 player online, I knew I had to get one, but I held off until I could find it for a cheaper price. When I went to Japan, I saw I could get it for £115 (approx.) using discount points from the store card - original price was £155 I think? I was very impressed with the size and the functions. The sound quality is good, and the battery life is average, but good for a player of that size. I would definitely recommend this to a friend… Read Full Review

The Apple iPod Nano MP3 player is a great little gadget. I treated myself to this as a Christmas present, and I never leave the house without it. The only downside I can think of is how very easily it scratches, and mine is in a bit of a state now, even with its silicone cover on! Battery life could do with a little extension too! All in all though, this is among my favourite gadgets, and it will take something pretty special to replace it… Read Full Review

I personally think the iPod Nano is a great product from Apple once again. Small, easy to use, and the battery lasts for a long time.
It costs quite a bit, but that is the only negative point… Read Full Review

I have had a 2Gb iPod Nano MP3 player since December 2005, and I am rarely without it when doing jobs outside, and I have listened to more music since December 2005 than I have for a long time.
Sound quality with the supplied headphones is great for me. Importing music from CD (have not yet tried iTunes) is fairly simple and very easy to sort your tracks.
The controls are very simple to use… Read Full Review

I was presented with an iPod Nano 4Gb Black for Christmas 2005, and I was immediately impressed.
This item has been masterfully marketed by Apple, and the presentation and packaging of it will not disappoint. This really feels like a quality, premium product. On seeing the Nano for the first time, you will love it. It is tiny and weighs virtually nothing. In black with its shiny chrome-esque reverse it is virtually a piece of modern art, and it sits comfortably in our modern, minimalist… Read Full Review

Apple iPod Nano's are usually pretty good but I have a few friends who have had problems with them. It is very vulnerable to scratches and the best thing to protect it is a screen protector and then use the case supplied with the nano. One of my friends put his in his back pocket and when he took it out after sitting down his nano came out smiling- it was bent. I would personally recommend spending an extra £90 and getting an iPod Video which are more robust. Apple are now bringing out a 1GB… Read Full Review

This Apple iPod Nano lasted less than 2 months and it was an extra special birthday present for a 16 year old who has a good record of taking care of things. She is devastated.
My son slings his zen micro all over the place and it is still going strong after 4 months - with few visible signs of wear and tear.
The Nano is for adults only and preferably those with experience of handling Ming vases… Read Full Review

I love my new Apple iPod Nano 2GB mp3 player, I was shocked at how small it actually is and how many songs I can get on it. Its also handy for transferring files etc. I got mine for £40 less than RRP, only £99.99 at this site StormMonkey.com - I think that they are the cheapest around for the Ipod Nano at the moment… Read Full Review
