Disgusting Product!!!!

Ellen E, Apple Store
22 November 2010
  • Summary: This product is not good at all!!! Do NOT, I repeat, Do NOT waste your money on this. It is not worth it. You can just sacrifice putting the iPod in your pocket.

negative star

June H, Apple Store
16 October 2010
  • Summary: The plastic cover is so stiff. selecting a tune was a major project. Once I had made my selection, controlling volume or changing the selection on the go was virtually impossible. I just "fixed" it by cutting away most of the plastic. Doesn't anyone test these things? ( I had one for my first nano which worked great.

Are you kidding?

Christina H, Apple Store
24 August 2010
  • Summary: We got the iPod nano for our colleague for her wedding. She's an avid runner, so we got the armband to go with it. But, if you stick the iPod inside the pouch, the hole where the cable for the ear phones is supposed to go through is on the opposite side of the actual plugin for the cable on the iPod. How on earch does this make sense? It's really frustrating because we thought we were getting her this great gift and now she's stuck with a device she can't actually use.

  • 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. later i used my moms charger and found out that the only way for it to work was to push the top switch down REALLY hard it worked for a few seconds.

Cheap, flimsy product. Can't believe I paid $30.

Gina W, Apple Store
16 June 2010
  • Summary: This is a chintzy, cheap product. First, could they not give 1mm more of material so that I don't have to spend 5 minutes cramming my nano into it. I had to take the skin off the nano so that it would fit. Ridiculous. The plastic cover is cheap and gets bends easily, thanks to how hard it is to get the stupid nano into it. And even then, it doesn't fit well.

Sweat problems

Andrea S, Apple Store
21 May 2010
  • Summary: As everyone else has been saying, this isn't a good arm band for running or exercise which causes you to sweat. The case absorbs the sweat from your body and pulls inside to rest on the nano. In addition, it reeks after about three uses. I used it all winter so it is fine for cold weather activity--provided you have the appropriate layers to absorb the sweat--but as soon as I broke out the tank top, its useful life was over.

Refurbished IPOD

Overstock
10 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this as a Christmas gift to my 16 y/o, but the pause button was defective and she wasn't able to utilize it. Maybe this is the reason it was refurbished to begin with. You get what you pay for!

Submarine with a screen door

Tim C, Apple Store
1 December 2009
  • Summary: That's the worth of this hunk 'o junk. You should be able to give it zero stars. Like most posters said below, it doesn't repel ANY sweat, it slips on the arm unless you pull it so tight you lose circulation, you can't access the lock button, and the clear plastic renders the wheel useless. It basically turns your Nano into a shuffle that is vulnerable to skipping and destruction (see sweat).

Arm Band NO Good!

Patricia F, Apple Store
15 October 2009
  • Summary: This band is not moisture sensitive which caused my nano to quit working. After letting it dry out I still got a white screen. I then went to the troubleshooting section and followed the instructions. I finally got it to work after 3 download tries but then had lines in it, sound was bad (became very drawn out and volume was very inconsistent), pictures where murky. I went running again using the armband and it died.

Only if you DON'T sweat!

Raul M, Apple Store
1 October 2009
  • Summary: The first time I used this armband it was very difficult for the face to acknowledge any finger movement because the plastic is too thick AND being on the treadmill for 45 minutes and having sweat pretty good - I didn't expect the nano to be WET. It froze on me and I had to gently place it in a warm area to dry it out. Fortunately it still works, but I would not recommend this armband because of this serious issue when exercising. Too costly of a shortfall.
