1st Gen ipod Nano
9 September 2012
Excerpt: So the first generation ipod nano is an amazing first ipod or mp3 player. In my opion it is also a great starter ipod for a yonger person probally with in the rang or ten to thirteen year old. And I say this since most ten to thirteen year olds I know only have a couple hundred songs that they really really like.
Excerpt: I bought this iPod used for only $40 from a friend. I bought this iPod because it was an upgrade from my 1 gb iPod shuffle. I like the fact that it has a screen so that you can navigate much easier and be more organized. I also liked the convenient size and the easy to use click wheel. I found that 1 gb of memory was not enough for my collection of music and I later upgraded to a Four gigabyte iPod nano.
Excerpt: The I-pod nano is a geat basic tool for downloading music. I use it at the gym and it has been a great help to keep my workouts upbeat and interesting. The device is quite small which is both a blessing and a curse. The pro is that it can be transported very easily and is not at all cumbersome. The con is that it is so small that it is easily misplaced and tends to be fragile. I would not recommend it for a teen or pre-teen. However it will work well for someone...
Summary: it turns out the 1st gen had a battery problem where it would overheat so apple started a replacment program where you can trade in a 1st gen and get the new one free to do this copy and paste the following URL address into ur browser: [...
Summary: Haven't got it yet but keep on reading.... From the reviews I here it is both good and bad. I am getting this because an mp3 i bought didn't work so this might not either just make sure someone you know that has had something like this before is there to help you find something good. Thats what I did! Thx rate up!!!!
Summary: Pros: The armband itself is nice looking. It doesn't slide down when working out. Cons: There is no way to lock or unlock your ipod unless you take it out of the case. Also, its really hard to move the wheel through the plastic. When you sweat the back of the ipod gets wet.
Summary: Needed something for the gym for my new gen 5 nano, and when I slid it into this armband I thought I'd found just what I needed. But then I thought there was something wrong with my new ipod...the click wheel was very insensitive and unresponsive. I had to use lots of pressure, and even then performance was spotty. Drove me CRAZY! Turns out the problem was the very thick plastic protection window the armband uses to cover the click wheel.
good product, but doesn't fit the newest iPod Nano

Summary: The product is very practical, but doesn't fit the new ipod nano correctly. Because the screen is slightly bigger, the wheel is lower than the hole. Also the jack for the new Nano is on the other side of the product, so again, everything doesn't line up. So overall, if you have the old nano, then great product, cant fault it. But if the buy the new Nano (the only one Apple are selling now) then don't buy until they update the product.
Good Product but still lacks complete sweat protection.

Summary: I just picked up Gen. 5 nano with this armband and the nike+ kit. This armband fit the nano with the nike+ sensor snuggly and straps comfortably around my average sized biceps. Took it for a 5K run and everything felt and functioned properly. After the run I took the nano out and noticed that the back side of the nano was damp from the sweat that had seeped through the back of the felt material on the ipod holder. So there were beeds of sweat on the back of the Nano.
Summary: The items is not very user friendly and it was shipped to me without an instruction booklet. I have had it for over a week now and have been unable to use it. I imagine it is a good product. However, Overstock.Com should have sent me an instruction booklet. It is for that reason that I am unhappy with tis purchase.
