The Apple iPod Nano fifth generation continues to be a top choice with consumers worldwide and at Review Centre they have been explaining why. Users at Review Centre are in love with the Nano, now available in either 8GB or 16GB flash drive, because it is stylish and slim, has a nice bright screen and is powerful and easy to use. You now have many more colours to choose from, including silver, black, purple, light blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and pink!
The Nano has long been a favourite on account of its wafer thin size making it perfect for slipping in your pocket or attaching to your clothes while walking, jogging or working out. Now the latest model includes a camera so you can thoot high-quality video in portrait or landscape - perfect for posting on the web or emailing friends. You can also watch video, allowing you to enjoy television, music videos, video podcasts and home cinema as well as music playing.
The latest Apple iPod Nano also includes a larger, brighter 2.2-inch colour display for your viewing pleasure. With a 320-by-240-pixel resolution at 204 pixels per inch, it's the glossiest screen yet from Apple, offering more pixels per inch of any Apple display.

With the 16GB versions, you can achieve playtime of up to 4 hours of video or up to 24 hours of audio on a single charge.

If you're after a classic MP3 player, then look no further than the sixth generation iPod Classic, known before its sixth generation release as simply the "iPod".
At times referred to as the "second generation iPod Classic", the new 120 GB model can hold up to 30,000 songs, 150 hours of video, or 25,000 photos! Surely that's more than enough space for a lifetime's worth of entertainment!?
The iPod Classic has a 2.5" back lighted display and a resolution of 320x240. Offered in classic silver or stunning black (replacing the signature iPod white), the iPod classic catches your eye with its sleek, all-metal enclosure composed of anodised aluminium and polished stainless steel.
The sixth generation Classic also introduces the "Genius" functionality and audio recording capabilities which are also available in other iPod models, and has also completely overhauled the user interface, incorporating more graphics and Cover Flow!
The iPod Classic is highly rated and recommended by many Review Centre users, so check out their reviews and decide for yourself!
The Review Centre team really like the look of these third generation iPod Touch players, and it looks like we're not the only ones. Consumers cannot get enough of them. The original Apple iPod Touch was launched on September 5, 2007 and was instantly a bestseller. Music, photos, videos and websites can be enjoyed in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and now 64GB models at prices previously unheard of and with a product that looks and works like a dream.
The new iPod Touch third generation has a strikingly thin, contoured stainless steel design, making the iPod touch feel even better in your hand. The third generation iPod Touch, featuring a built-in speaker, external volume controls, a contoured back and Bluetooth support, was unveiled on September 9, 2009.
Users at Review Centre all agree that the cutting edge technologies built into the iPod touch, such as the accelerometer, Multi-Touch display and 3D graphics, help to completely immerse you in the action. The new Genius feature effortlessly turns your iPod touch into a highly intelligent, personal DJ! With a few taps, it creates a playlist by finding songs in your library that go great together.
With this player one thing is made certain - that you should never write Apple off. Why not be among the first to review the Apple iPod Touch at Review Centre? Are there any faults with it or is it as fantastic as it looks?
If you are seeking simplicity and style and like the sound of owning an iPod but don't want to splash too much cash this Xmas why not let the third generation 4GB iPod Shuffle tempt you with up to 1000 songs while you work, rest or play.
It's one of the highest recommended MP3 Players at Review Centre, scoring particularly highly for sound quality and value for money. It's always a popular choice due to its ease of use and easy compatibility with PC and other products. Also, because of the fact that it does not have a screen and lots of features like the more advanced players do, this means it's very cheap, small and light.
In fact, the iPod Shuffle is one of the lightest MP3 Players on the market which means it is ideal for joggers or anyone with an active lifestyle. The extra good news is that latest models are better than ever with a choice of two new colours, silver or black, and prices are also dropping. The 4GB USB flash drive enables you to hold up to 1000 songs and you can store data with ease via the USB 2.0 flash drive. Skip-free playback is guaranteed.
Other features include built-in rechargeable lithium polymer battery, a playtime of up to 10 hours when fully charged. A variant of VoiceOver is also included on Apple's new iPod Shuffle, allowing the user to access his or her Macintosh by using speech and the keyboard. This feature is designed to increase accessibility for those with impaired vision. The iPod Shuffle also comes with earphones, dock, start guide and 3.5-mm stereo headphone and minijack.
