“I ordered my iPod Nano MP3 player on release date from...”

Written on: 25/08/2006 by apediscotron (3 reviews written)

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...”

Written on: 10/08/2006 by e4chin (30 reviews written)

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'll stick to my Sony Ericsson K750i, as it plays the same files as the Apple iPod Nano, and you can get 8 gigs worth of memory cards for it at half the price!

I know. Really they're just like any other MP3 player. The screen is too small for video, otherwise I'd put films on it. The other thing I like about the iPod is it comes with iTunes. It has a huge music library, and it organizes all of your songs quite nicely. Like I said, I love my iPod Nano!

Indeed, but I also just like the styling of the iPod Nano. Not the newer iPod Nano's, because they look like the iPod Mini's, but I like the style of the original iPod. But I don't have that many songs, so the Nano was for me!

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

Written on: 06/08/2006 by puretoon (21 reviews written)

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

Written on: 20/07/2006 by starling death (18 reviews written)

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

Written on: 30/04/2006 by arianne (13 reviews written)

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

Written on: 07/04/2006 by Matt1986 (4 reviews written)

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

Written on: 02/04/2006 by Jonno (31 reviews written)

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

Written on: 02/04/2006 by jarnartharn (37 reviews written)

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 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

Written on: 31/03/2006 by Elricardo (20 reviews written)

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

Just as an add on to my review - I have since had the Nano replaced by Apple. Its quite an easy process, all you do is 'request service' via the Apple website and follow the prompts. They then deliver you a small padded cardboard box which is later collected. You can monitor the repair progress online which is useful. Apple then dispatch a new or repaired unit back to you. This is all handled by UPS and is, therefore, recorded via signature. I've had then new Nano for about 3 weeks now and so far, so good.

Written on: 14/02/2006 by alfiemc (9 reviews written)

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

Written on: 12/02/2006 by flamingnora (1 review written)

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

Written on: 23/02/2006

I had exactly the same problem. Firstly I had a video ipod which lasted a month before it stopped playing songs and the battery wouldn't last, and the screen scratched within hours!!
Then when I exchanged it for the Ipod nano. After 2 weeks the pc didn't recognise the device when it was plugged into the usb port, and again the battery wouldn't last!
I've now completely lost faith with apple and have bought a Sony NWA1000 with 3x the memory for the same price, fingers crossed it'll last longer than 2 months!

Written on: 10/03/2006

I would point out that the Nano is indeed very fragile in that it scratches very easily (as has been well documented) and it's small and light so perhaps doesn't withstand being thrown about as much as 'tougher' mp3s such as Creatives or iRivers. However it's exactly the unique size, lightness and design that are the Nano's key attractions. I'm incredibly clumsy and have dropped my Nano several times, I also use it everywhere including the gym. It has had no probs whatsoever. If you get a case for it from day 1, you should have no problems. It's a shame the gift turned out to disappoint, perhaps then, Nanos are more for the 'gadgety' adults?
