the stupid thing was broken when he sent it to me

Summary: when i got the ipod in the mail i was really happy. it was my first nano that i had ever had. then i tryed to turn it on it didn't work so i thought that the battery was dead and then i saw that it didnt have a charger and ear phones that it said it came with.
Summary: I have owned a black 1st gen 2GB iPod for about a year, and I'm not happy. I had very few problems with it until recently, the buttons on it stopped working and doing apples recommended "5 r's" did not help. I called apples technical service line and guess what..
Summary: While it looks functional, unfortunately this little guy has an extremely low battery life - making it practically useless. I have not yet explored getting this fixed but imagine that once I do, I will end up having paid quite a bit more - ultimately not saving the money that I thought I would.
Summary: DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT. There, simple advice I wish someone had given me before I bought two of these. With the first one the battery died 13 months after purchase. Since it was 30 days outside the warrantly, apple support told me "sorry, tough luck.
Summary: Wow, all of the trouble with these Ipods! I was considering buying one for my 13 year old daughter for Xmas but, after all of the scratching issues, the dead battery issues, the battery life issues, the problems with iTunes crashing home PCs, etc., etc... I think I'll look elsewhere for sure!
Most fragile piece of consumer electronics I've ever seen

Summary: Amazing functionality and beautful design doesn't last long. Within one week the ipod is so scratched that you'll think you're keeping razorblades in your pocket. The battery stopped holding its charge after 6 months. Spoke to an apple agent they told me send it back we'll repair it no problem.
