Summary: i bought this about a month ago and have loved it, (when working properly) but sometimes i wonder how long i can put up with this CRAP! first problem, it literally shocks me while charging and syncing from my PC. second problem, itunes is making me uninstall and renistall when i want to sync it. third problem, sometimes it doesn't even say i plugged it in at all! fourth problem, when working right, the connection will flickers on and off sometimes.
Summary: I had this for a few months and then gave it to my mom and got the 7th Generation. She liked it for the clip so she could attach it on while working out and not need an armband. I would only go with this if you are getting it for the size but nothing else.
