Apple’s iPod has revolutionized the way we buy and listen to music. You don’t have to buy a whole album, just to get the songs you really wanted. It’s like having a commercial-free radio station playing only the songs you choose…and they always take your requests! With the advent of the video iPod, you get the same chance with your favorite TV shows, movies, and podcasts. Whether you purchase programming from the iTunes store (just $1.99 per episode for TV programs!) or record it through your computer, it’s all right there in your pocket.

The 3rd generation iPod nano’s slick click-wheel lets you navigate quickly to any of your videos, photos, music, e-books, calendar events, and contact database. The durable, touch-sensitive surface responds to your every whim, and gives you total control of the experience. No matter what you’re looking for, iPod makes it easy to get just what you want.

Because it uses flash memory, it’s unaffected by vibrations, so it’s a perfect choice for the gym, motorcycling, or other active pursuits! The slim nano is housed in rugged aluminum, and gives you up to 24 hours of music playback, or 5 hours of video with sound on a single charge. Big things really do come in small packages!

5 out of 5 eggsCan't Go Wrong

Pros: As the title indicates, this Nano is without technical flaws.

Cons: The lack of color selection is surprisingly disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Although personal preferences don't account for any reason to downgrade this product, the lack of color choice is worth noting.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat first iPod

Pros: Great iPod. There's a reason Apple is the gold standard for MP3 players.

Cons: The Nano is now on its 4th Gen. But I got the 3rd Gen iPod at a lower price, so that's not necessarily a con.

Other Thoughts: I got this for a Christmas gift for my 9-year-old. He doesn't need the iPhone, Touch, or even the 4th Gen iPod. We have two 3rd Gen Nanos and one 1st Gen Touch in our house. The Nanos are great for the younger kids (before high school) where status isn't such a big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsIpod Nano

Pros: I like the small use of the iPod. iPods are very easy to use now these days. The smaller the iPod is the more you can take it places. It's nice to have an iPod that can fit into almost anything. Also, it holds a lot of songs which is nice to have when you really like to listen to music. Also,
iPod nano holds up to 7,000 photos you can sync from your Mac or PC via iTunes. Your iPod nano comes with three games--Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike--and you can download more from the iTunes Store for $4.99 each. Also, you can Browse thousands of episodes of your favorite TV shows on the iTunes Store, buy them for just $1.99 each, then sync them to your iPod nano. There are tons of extras too such as calendars, contacts, and a screen lock appear in the Extras menu, along with a few more handy items.

Cons: There aren't too many cons with the Ipod, but there are a few. Special software is required to transfer music to iPod, which can be annoying b/c you have to get the software and then download it.
Also, Dead batteries cost too much to replace. If something happens to the battery it's a pain to replace it and may make you frusturated. Also, to recharge iPod battery you must have a powered USB port. If you lose this cord you won't be able to charge your .
Also, its expensive because of Apple brand.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I think the Apple 4GB iPod Nano-3rd Gen (SILVER) is a good product. The color is simple and it gives you what you want. It's not to simple but not to complex either. It's a really good product and I believe Apple can be trusted with all it's products.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!!

Pros: The sound is PERFECT. If you have never listened to an IPod ask someone who has one if they will let you listen to it for fifteen minutes. After this road test I promise you that you will insist on one of your own.

Cons: VERY easy to lose! It is a very small object that weighs next to nothing. Be very careful about where you store the IPod. Have a routine for putting it away after listening. Many IPods have been left in jeans,washed, and found in the dryer!

Other Thoughts: Apple makes GREAT music products. Mr. Steve and his friend Steve W. are very smart men. You have not heard your music like this since you were fifteen years old...You are gonna love it.

5 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Solidly built, excellent sound quality, easy to operate with one hand in the car

Cons: fingerprints & scratches easily, need to use iTunes

Other Thoughts: I'm generally not a fan of Apple, but in the MP3 player market the only reason to buy anything BUT an iPod is price. This thing is brilliantly designed, easy to use, and has great sound quality, which I think is what a music player is supposed to do! I'm not thrilled with being locked into iTunes, but other than that there's little not to love.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Only compatible player with iTunes that directly links in and syncs the music. The screen is amazing and the sound is good through the provided headphones, although I am thinking about upgrading.

Cons: Only compatible player with iTunes that directly links in and syncs the music.

Other Thoughts: I have to give it to Apple. I was reluctant to buy an ipod at all, but after experiencing one for the first time, I am hooked. They have a great system/service and the ipod nano 3G works TERRIFIC! Got a DVD ripper free online and enjoy my movies on it now too. 4GB goes quickly - I probably would go 8GB if I were to do it again, but the nano's size is perfect.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product...and weird

Pros: Overall this is a pretty good iPod. It has a lot of space, (up to 1,000 songs), it plays movies, comes with a lot of aps, and is verys small and lightweight. It's also very easy to use and has a long battery life. Depending on how you use this, it can last a realy long time.

Cons: It is overpriced though, but it's an apple product...
The nano doesn't realy have 4gigs because of the all the other stuff that comes with it. Also the screen is to small for movies and podcasts and such, but this realy doesn't matter, if you wanted to watch movies you probably would get something else. The backs scratch REALY easy and they are also pretty easy to dent, and the last one i had went INSANE every time i plugged it into the computer the thing deleted all the songs, shut down, then come back on again and my computer started diplaying all these messages about how corrupt it was...I took it back to where i got and they said it was the nano's fault(just in case you thought it was the computer's).

Other Thoughts: Even though it does have some strange flaws I would still buy one again, which I did and it works fine.
