Summary: I know why Apple discontinued this device but I can't honestly say I understand it. I've never bought a new iPod and I've never bought anything besides the Nano. In my experience, these devices have always been tough and long-lived. I've spent far more money on headphones than I have on third-generation Nanos. If you can find one, buy it. It will very likely outlive the usefulness of your other Apple products.
Summary: I'm actually writing this review five years after I purchased this iPod. It's still performing perfectly, and I'm still loving it. I'm a simple guy when it comes to portable music and such. I don't need a lot of whistles and bells. I was just looking for a small unit that would deliver half-way decent sound on a consistent basis. Mission accomplished. I have watched the occasional video, and it performs well there, as well. But mostly it's for my music.
Summary: Great product for the price. Would definitely refer it to someone else. It took me a minute to find this one because I left my original one on the plane and it was not returned to me by a good Samaritan. I was totally sad because my old one housed all my music for when I teach dance class. Extremely excited I was able to find the same model.
Summary: I had this Ipod before. I switched to the new touch Ipod. I just didn't like the new one, and went back the Apple Ipod nano 5th generation. Great sound, easy to carry, easy to operate! Just love it.
Summary: When I got my Ipod Nano from this company it was in excellent condition. No scratches, no cracks, almost brand new. I love it and it is in excellent working condition. I also got a USB Cable that came with it.
great little i pod nano that will play video and music and will not break the bank

Summary: This is my second 3rd generation i pod; recieved one about 4 years ago as a present and love it. i bought a second one so I could give it to my niece who is always barrowing my other i pod. Works great a and will play video and music and doesn't have internet access like the i touch. it have a very long battery life, at lease 24 hours of continuous play before you have to charge it again.
