It's so convenient, if you're just looking for something small to throw in your pocket. Great for bringing on the bus, or out for a run. Batter is not brilliant on it, but you learn to live with it I suppose. It's not the only one I have, but it's a handy little one to keep all the same. (read more)

Cute, portable. 1GB to 5GB sometimes is not enough.

I hated the Ipod Mini beacuse the thing froze on me many times. Now it does not work at all, so it stays in my house untouched. I did not like how the screen froze and the good thing was that I could hold all my songs that came from my CD. I did like some of it the games were ok but took up lots of battery. Now I have a new Ipod the new Nano and it works wonders, color screen and more better games and video storage too. (read more)

I really do love the iPod series and this has got to be the best iPod Apple have ever made.
The battery life is brilliant, mine lasts about 13 hours now after owning it for 2 years it used to be 18 but I'm considering changing the battery soon anyway,So I'm going to get a few years out of this!
Generally, I do like the iPod Mini more than my iPod Video even though it's old! (read more)

I have a silver iPod Mini which i bought off eBay about 6 months ago now and the previous owner had it for at least 18 months before me and its still in a great in great condition!
I have bought a separate case for it to ensure minimal scratching as I use it for work, the gym and carrying around in my bag so it does get bashed around quite a bit but this doesn't deter the sound quality in the slightest and the memory is brilliant. I can hold about 1,500 songs on mine which is more than... (read more)

I've had this iPod since sept 2005 and it gave me great use, I had encounted battery issues but it was fixed quickly by an iPod updater on the apple site that you can get free. I find it very sturdy to the point that my horse stood on it and it didn't even get damaged apart from a teeny nick.
Shame apple discontinued this, its an advantage for those who want small but decent music players that wont break easily as the nano. My mom's buying this off me as I'm purchasing an 30gb video soon :D (read more)

The iPod mini is the best selling iPod in the market. Too bad it got discountinued. Its sound is excellent, many features, 4 GB memory (1000 songs), uses iTunes which is a very good software. It's also very reliable, which means it doesn't break for no reason. Mine is in excellent condition with not one problem and no scratches at all.
People say that the battery is low. But I think 7 hours is enough. It doesn't have a color screen but who cares about the color it's the music that's... (read more)

I've had this little gem for over a year now and it has never let me down yet. I had read reports that iPods could be unreliable and prone to breaking but in my experience that has not been the case. In spite of frequent use my iPod is as reliable as the day I bought it. The sound quality is excellent with the supplied headphones and is even better with the Sennheiser set I bought. This iPod is so easy to use...everything is managed with a simple scroll or click of the wheel. Organising... (read more)

The Apple iPod Mini is a great MP3 player for anyone. I found that they are very durable, and mine did not break. I encountered no problems with it at all, which is why I was very surprised when I saw how many people reviewed it negatively and had problems with it. Granted, the headphones it comes with do deteriorate after a little while, but you can use any headphones with the iPod Mini.
An iPod Mini is especially great for someone who wants an iPod but doesn't want to spend a whole bunch... (read more)

I have a pink metallic iPod Mini, which is very cute and pretty. It looks very neat and stylish, and Apple is a trusted make. It is really easy to use and it offers excellent sound quality. The battery life is reasonable, and it has loads of fun games and the computer software is easy to use. (read more)

-: INTRODUCTION :-
I bought my iPod Mini MP3 player last year. I bought it because I wanted something to listen to while walking to and from work. I needed something small and light to carry in my pocket. I looked around, but I was spoilt for choice. There were so many to choose from, but then I came across the iPod Mini, and I liked it straight away, so I did some checking, and I knew this was the one for me, so I considered it to be bought.

Overall the Apple iPod Mini is a very good ipod and I recommend it to all. Another thing, if you have a question or problem and you want to speak to Apple, you end up on the phone to them for over an hour inside a queue, and I still didn't get through so I hung up. (read more)

WARNING: THIS IPOD WILL SELF-DESTRUCT IN 5 SECONDS. When it was new it only lasted a few hours but now it will only switch on for a few seconds unless it is plugged into a charger. And a replacement battery is at least £50! I honestly think they time them to self destruct after their warranty has run out so you are forced to buy a new product. (read more)

I've had an iPod Mini for over a year now, and it is the worst purchase I have ever made. Mine is now sitting on my shelf broken. Why? It just decided to pack in for no reason, just after my 1 year warranty ran out. How convenient! Apple say I need a new battery which I'll have to fork out £40 for. I'm just going to buy a new player instead. My bad experience appears to be common. All of my friends with iPod Mini's have had problems. One person's click wheel somehow stopped responding,...

My ipod does not stay charged for more than a couple of hours - so take it for a day out and I can listen to it on the way out, but not on the way back. I do a lot of long-haul flying (main reason I bought it) and I can only get a couple of hours out of it in-flight. Sent it to be fixed, but it doesn't seem any better now I have it back. (read more)

I was originally bought the Apple iPod Mini MP3 player for my birthday back in 2004. At first it was brilliant, but after I put more than 500 songs on it, it started jamming up and freezing, which is bad for a product which costs £179.99.
Then there's the rubbish battery life!! I sent it back to Apple and complained, but all they did was put on the new firmware for a Mac computer. I had to then restore my iPod back to the factory settings.
The price which is a total rip off at £179.99. I... (read more)

The Apple iPod Mini MP3 player is fantastic!! It's not too big and not too small; it's just perfect!! The sound is fantastic; especially on big speakers, and it's very easy to find your music on this incredible piece of technology.
5***** stars! Well worth the money!!
A little note: I have had the iPod Nano for 2 days and it is already scratched too pieces, so I wouldn't recommend the Nano!! (read more)

If you are looking to buy an mp3 player whatever you do don't get a mini ipod!! I got one for my birthday 2 months ago and am about to take it back for the third time. When I connect it to my computer itunes doesn't recognise that it has come up so I can't put any music on it. Also the headphones are of a very poor quality and go all fuzzy after about 2 weeks.

25.08.05 - I am currently now on my third Apple iPod Mini MP3 player!! Having received my Mini iPod in late February, it has been nothing but a time consuming burden. It originally worked for three months with the occasional hitch of freezing, and poor battery life, then in late May it stopped working after a mere 20 minutes (after a full charge). I received a replacement after three and a half weeks, and this worked for a week. Apple treated me very badly. READ THE SMALL PRINT, and if your... (read more)

I have owned a Mini iPod for a year now, and I've had to send it back 5 times. The headphones are useless (they just break), and the battery is terrible. Although it is lightweight, and the customer service is great.
I do recommend it to others, but before you decide to buy one, compare it to other MP3 players! (read more)

I bought an Apple iPod Mini in the USA immediately after its launch in September 2004. Due to Prolonged use and travelling in India, an amount of dust got inside it.
As the product was still under warranty, I called their Service Centre, and was told that the product could not be serviced as it is a MOULDED product. So just throw it away, and buy a new one if it stops working due to dust. (read more)

I got my Ipod mini 4 months ago. The software was not great, but once worked out, it was straight forward to use.
I did get a lot of use out of the mini, but I have sent it back, and received a refund for one reason only. The battery life is a joke. At first I was getting about 6 hours before a recharge. I was not happy with this, but this was getting worse by the week. In the end, it was lasting about 4 hours. I have since found out from other people, that this is a known... (read more)

I just got my Apple iPod Mini today and I have been absolutely thrilled with it so far. Its so cute! Its the best thing I have ever bought. Its really clever.

Having owned my Apple iPod Mini for over a month now, I can easily say it's one of the coolest players out there. It has a great user interface, great battey life, and the build quality is good too. But it's size and feel makes you very wary about taking it out in the big bad world. I was almost scared to take it out for if it got scratched or stolen. So I would recommend if you buy one to buy an "iSkin mini" as it protects the whole iPod, including the screen. Go Buy an iPod Mini! (read more)

I got the pink Apple iPod Mini 4GB about 2 weeks ago and it has been great! It is really easy to work. It is also easy to put songs on to. The best feauture is probably the click wheel which I find is very easy to work and is better than pushing buttons to work gadgets. (read more)

On Christmas Day I got an Apple iPod Mini! I had been waiting sooooo long and it worked fantastically for the 1st month. Then it kept going dead. I would charge it for the recommended time and without fail it would go completley dead within 15minutes of using it. Now it will barley go on. Its so depressing. I sent it away to Apple because I still had the warranty but they said they could find nothing wrong with it so now I'm doomed to a life of a scratched 5 year old CD player because APPLE...

I got my iPod Mini for Christmas 2004 and its been great. I have over 500 songs on it but I have only used 200mb, I bought an optional Apple compressor. This means each song takes up roughly 100kb each and still has the same quality. I did however drop it from desk height the other day onto a tiled floor and it chipped the metal front. It still works fine though but I wouldn't recommend dropping it as it is very fragile. (read more)

The iPod Mini has been a sensation in the U.S.
The small colorful mp3 player has definitely caught many peoples eyes. The Apple name assures a quailty product with a long life span. But you have to use this product right as in not dropping it (which is bad in my book beacuse I'm very clumsy), banging on it, or getting it wet. But the iPod Mini is very expensive for most people. But the songs on iTunes are expensive. But the iPod Mini is a very good product overall and I would recommend it. (read more)

Having lost my MZ N10 minidisc during a night out, I was very pleased when my wife bought me an Ipod Mini for my birthday.

The day finally came, early January 2005. My iPod came, and I was anxious to open it and get it running. I had previously owned the 5GB First Generation iPod, which was really good. The big moment finally came, the opening of the iPod Mini. I rushed through all the rappings there it was, incased in a cardboard cover with screen cover still on it. I lifted up and was surprised by its weight (3.6oz). The iPod did need charging (I already expected that), so I hooked it up to my brother's Cube... (read more)

Christmas day! I opened my box for iPod mini and couldn't wait to get started. I installed iTunes on my computer and tried to turn on my iPod mini...no response. It would not turn on, and would not charge. After getting EXTREMELY annoyed I decided to box it up and leave it forever. The next morning I again attempted to charge it, and there was life! I was on top of the world and started to download songs on to my iPod. As the weeks passed by I spent time enjoying my music and chilling out.... (read more)

The ipod mini is a very good mp3 player. I would have bought the new iPod model but my money is a little short. And really, who needs 20 GBs of music. The only people that complain about the small harddrive are geeks and losers, and they have no taste in music at all. So if your just a regular person that wants something more from an mp3 player but not a loser who tries and point out every bad detail then get the ipod mini. Also, so small. Amazing! (read more)
