I've always wanted an iPod and this is perfect for me
16 November 2014
Summary: I've always wanted an iPod and this is perfect for me. I'm not one who needs the newest and most expensive version. The casing is wonderful! Thick and strong, my other cheap MP3 players have failed because of being dropped or pulled. It's great to reuse and recycle.
Summary: This item was repaired and up up for sale. There was a gash in the case, you could look inside, and the FM transmitter charger couldn't be placed into the receptual at the base of the iPod. Returned it and got credit, GREAT!!
Summary: I was a bit skeptical and scared about this purchase given the low price but was willing to risk it and am glad I did. It's a genuine IPod Mini and works perfectly, although I did have to get rid of a lot of Chinese songs. Not sure why the sellers don't erase the contents before selling these, but its an easy fix. Great purchase.
Summary: I was a little disappointed by the condition of the iPod-several scratches and dents. So I think it was a bit overpriced, considering the appearance. Since returning the iPod once for service, it has worked fine.
Summary: I have had and enjoyed this ipod mini for about 2 years. EXCEPT: The battery is ridiculous, yet advertised as "up to 18 hours". This is a bad joke on the consumer. Apple should add "for 6-12 months of average usage, then will drop to about one hour". I have enjoyed this ipod but now have to basically tether it to a power supply. I exercise for 60 minutes on a treadmill and have to recharge it EVERY DAY.
Summary: This is my second - and last - iPod. At this point in the history of the iPod, anything I say will be superfluous, but I'll reiterate the one reason why I'd never get another iPod. The battery lasts about a year if you're lucky, and 6 months if you're not. At that point, Apple expects you to put out another $60 for another battery. Not only is that expensive, but it's also a pain in the neck.
