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 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: I bought the ipod mini from Amazon on September 17, 2005. I used it periodically over the next few months, probably about 50 or so hours total play time. This week, I rediscovered my ipod after not using it since December. I was so excited to be able to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and music at work that I joined audible.com and started downloading all this great stuff. It's really a great toy to have around to break the tedium of the work day. If only it worked.
Summary: I love iPod and couldn't imagine living without it. While I was a bit of a latecomer to the iPod revolution, it has really transformed my life. I listen to it on the metro going to work and also during some of my classes. Pro's: - Charge lasts for a long time - iTunes has most songs I love; bonus is the audio books you can download. I have some 11hr drives so I buy one or two and it's much cheaper than at the stores.

Summary: Well good thing you are on eBay - because thats now the best and really the only place to buy iPod Minis. Now that Apple has forgone the iPod Mini series for the iPod Nano. Now that the Nano is getting all of the press attention for being the sexiest gadget ever - its hard to remember that just 12 - 18 months ago, the iPod Mini was in the same boat.
Summary: this is my first ipod/mp3 player, and it is great. i've had it for about a month, and heres what i think of it so far. sound quality: great, although i dont really have anything to compare it to. design: great, i love how it seems to be carved out of aluminum, perfect size. durablity: great, a couple weeks ago i just about had a hard attack when i dropped it about 3 feet onto a hard surface.
Summary: I was certain that iPods couldn't be nearly as good as everyone kept saying. I was certain it was all hype. I was wrong. With a couple of exceptions -- about which more in a moment -- this is really the best MP3 player I've ever used. And I have gone through a lot of them looking for the right one, believe me. The capacity, the sound quality, the way ease of use (generally) is superior to most of the other players I've tried.
Summary: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I had purchased a Rio Forge Sport 256 MB MP3 Player. Someone must have slipped me a mickey when I bought that, because that was one of my worst purchases to this day. The case wasn't grounded, so the headphones kept shorting out, and something was wrong electronically, so it unexpectedly turned itself off. Rubbish.
