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 eggsSo much better

Pros: Got this for my wife, I had an old 4th gen and this is so much nicer. The screen is bright and clear, cover flow is awsome and the size is perfect for running with. Its and ipod what more can you ask for. Now if apple would just sell OSX to the pc masses.

Cons: Its not free, for the price you should get 16gig not 8

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: Sleek Look. Easy navigation through many features. Fantastic acoustics in contrast to its size (smaller than a credit card) and light weighted. You can put it almost everywhere. On the other hand, don't forget it in the pocket of your dirty laundry. I can see how easy a mistake that could be. Although I have heard stories of how sturdy it is to survive washing machines. I'd rather not to find it out in first hand. :)

Cons: The manual coming with it is not very informative. I have to spent time online to find out that small white plastic is called dock adapter.

Other Thoughts: Ordered online, got it next day. It is quite amazing since it is free shipping and I paid even less than Apple online since no taxes are charged here. Newegg.com is one of my favorite online store and will still be.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy Wait?

Pros: I vowed I would never faulter to the world of ipod. I should have earlier!! My wife wanted one so this is what she got. This thing is awesome!! Nice cool color!! So many features in something so small!! The screen res is sweet, nice and clear. It's small, yet very convenient. Excellent interface, very easy to navigate. Album art is such a cool idea. Makes it nice and easy to look for music.

Cons: Nothing against the Nano.

The itunes crashes when I try to transfer photos to the ipod. Anoying since this is the only way to transfer photos. Hopefully there will be an update that will fix this.

The owners manual is kind of un-informative for someone that has never had one. Thankfully the ipod is easy to figure out.

Other Thoughts: This thing is very cool. I should have faultered to the ipod world earlier. The problem I have now is trying to convince my wife to let me have it!! Oh well, next stop, iPhone!! I'm Sold!!

5 out of 5 eggsPhotos don't do it justice

Pros: Huge improvement over the last generation. Sleeker than it looks. The screen is gorgeous and easy to read. I was going with the black or silver color until I got a look at the green in person. None of the online photos show the colors as good as they look in person.

Cons: having to use iTunes.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb!

Pros: I had a gen 1 and my wife had a gen 2 Nano. I upgraded hers to the new model (red one from apple.com) and immediately had to order one after seeing hers :)

Video playback is really cool; perfect for travel by bus/plane, stuck in jury duty, doctor's office, etc.. You know, the times you're bored out of your mind!

Excellent sound quality, battery life. Just better in every way. Recommended!

Cons: Apple's iTunes for Windows is still... iffy. My least favorite multimedia/library software. Oh well, just use it to load the iPod and close it out.

Other Thoughts: Hard to go wrong with the new Nano.
