Apple iPod Shuffle 1GB
26 July 2014
Excerpt: I eventually thought I would step into the 21st century and buy an MP3 player and I went for this very cheap Apple iPod Shuffle with a memory of just 1GB. This was very inexpensive at just £31 from Argos.
Summary: Look it, at $30, this product was expensive considering its just a usb Extension. Now 7 years after the iPod was released I pulled the trigger and bought two. They have no real use but being the apple fanboy I was I had to get them for my two iPod shuffles.
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.
Summary: I've owned several types of IPod, and this one has always been my favorite! It's simple to use, has excellent sound, the battery stays charged for about 12 hours, and it is very durable. Even though I have an IPod touch, I still keep an IPod shuffle for playing in my car, or during exercise.
be careful - there are different generations of this product -

Summary: I bought this for a second generation shuffle - the one that charges with the same jack that you plug your headphones in to. It doesn't work for this. Either I didn't read the listing or they switched - I'm not sure - threw 'm out.
Works nicely as universal USB connector for thumb drives

Summary: Now that the era of 1st gen iPod shuffles is actually long time over and this connector can be bought for cheap (I paid $8 for mine, including shipping and handling), it can do the job quite nicely as a stand for USB thumb drives. No more bending when inserting thumb drives into under-the-desk slots or struggling to find the USB connectors on the back of the keyboard. Note: the idea is not mine, I saw it on flickr.
Summary: This is epic. It works perfectly, although you have to charge it when you get it. Few scratches, but what do expect from it being refurbished? Perfect condition otherwise. It even came with a waterproof case and lanyard, an authentic apple software disk, and replaceable buttons and seals for the waterproof case. It's awesome, and sooo much better than the new shuffles. I use it everywhere i go now, and everywhere I can use it. Even in the car. Thanks Overstock.
1 works great, 1 worked okay, 1 didn't work at all

Summary: My dad bought two shuffles for Christmas 2005. My sister's quit working after a year, but mine still works perfectly two and a half years later. Being completely satisfied with mine, I bought one for my boyfriend for Christmas 2006, and it didn't work. Customer Service was fairly helpful and we got a refund for it. My advice to you is if you choose to purchase it, make sure you get the optional extended warranty on it.
