Good Points
Over 12 hr battery life
Easy controls
Regular play and shuffle option

Bad Points
Can get lost as it is tiny
Inbuilt battery, so you can't change it when out and about and the battery dies on you.
No way of knowing what song you are listening to
Need the Apple software to load music

General Comments
Got this in the States last year. WOW! Think it's a fantastic system. I didn't want to be another ipod person, but it really is great. I have so much music on HDD that to have a system which I can pull music onto is good. I got this as a replacement to my old MP3 player (which some one put between their legs while on the M25,on a motorbike!).

There are a couple of downsides;

1 - you need the apple iTunes to transfer the music. Yes, MP3 can be directly transferred as if the iPod is a usb drive, but it doesn't play the music.

2 - you have no idea who is singing sometimes!

I like the feature through iTunes to autofil the shuffle with songs - then I can hear songs I've not heard for years!

The sound quality is so good through this. I don't use the iPod headphones, I have some sound reduction headphones of my own. The volume does not have to be loud to hear great music. There is no graphic equaliser, so that'll be a bad side too.

Haven't yet run out of battery on the go - the battery lasts for 12 hours, and I have about 250 songs on it at the moment.

I would recommend it for a small, hidden easy to use digital music player.
