Ipod Shuffle is ok
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I bought the first generation apple ipod shuffle when it first came. I thought it was the best thing in the world, but look back, it's not that great. I used this during my high school years and it was pretty good I guess. It scratches easily and has many dents after a while. The only funciton is listening to music. The pros were that it was small and compact, which made it easy to carry.
Excerpt: I was looking for a basic music player for my son's seventh birthday and was researching mp3 players when I stumbled across the iPod Shuffle. I was hesitant about buying iPod because I thought it would be overpriced (because it's iPod brand) but turned out that this was very affordable. I can monitor what music my son will be listening to and when he listens to his music on roadtrips he can sit in his seat and just be in his own little world. At one point the iPod was...
Excerpt: I love to listen to music when I'm exercising, folding laundry, doing dishes, etc. It gives me an escape from daily life, a chance to dance around and act like I did in college in my dorm room, etc. However, I was fooled into thinking this first-generation iPod Shuffle was a good idea, and I suffered through using it for several years before finally giving up and buying an 8GB Nano. Yes, it plays music, so it gets the general gist of a mP3 player.

Excerpt: I received one of these as a hand-me-down from my wife. With Apple's iTunes software this little mp3 player can be loaded with about 10 albums worth of music (about 150 songs). You can either choose what music or have iTunes randomly select songs from your library. I got my best use from this iPod in the gym because it is very small. The only downside is that the iPod will only play the songs in random order so you can't set up any custom playlists.
Excerpt: The original generation ipod shuffle most people thought was so cool at the time. Well i never had a liking for it. It was big and bukly and you could never really conceal it as well as you would think. It didn't have a clip and you had to put it in your pocket. They're not many cases made for this verision of the shuffle. But i guess it is true when they say that the original version always has the biggest downfalls and most kinks.
Excerpt: I purchased this iPod Shuffle in spring, 2005, when it was a new product. I had a regular iPod as well, and purchased this as a second iPod, to use when the battery died on my regular iPod and because I wanted a smaller and lighter iPod for times when I didn't want to carry my regular, slightly larger and heavier, model.
Excerpt: I have owned one of these ipods and didn't like it to much I have owned Multiple ipods in the last 6-8 months: A Shuffle 2n gen 1 GB, a shuffle 1st gen 512 MB, a nano 5th gen 8 GB, a touch 1st,2nd,and 4th gen 8GB! This was the worst because because its lack of Space to put Music on it My little brother bought it from me because I was upgrading from my shuffle to a nano, but at least he enjoyed it...for a while anyway, he now has a nano too!
Excerpt: I got this as a gift when it first came out. I used it for over a year until it died on me. I liked it because it was small and could be used as a flash drive. The battery seemed to last pretty long before I needed to recharge. I didn't like the player cause it scratched easily and didn't have a screen so I couldn't check the title or artist of the songs. It also seemed to play in the same "shuffle" order.
Summary: Great buy. Just like new. I like to use it when out on my bicycle or mowing the grass. I bought this iPod to replace my old shuffle. Although it does not have the features of the more newer models it plays just as well and is simple to use which is ideal when on my bicycle on quiet country roads. It has a lanyard to hang around the neck too.
