Apple iPod shuffle (4th Generation with Click Wheel)

PC Magazine
18 December 2010
  • Conclusion: It's hard to get excited about an iPod with no screen, but Apple's inclusion of on-player controls makes the affordable shuffle easier to navigate—and a better value.
  • Pros: Lowest-priced iPod. Now has on-player controls for easier navigation. Voiceover feature speaks the name of songs, artists, and playlists.
  • Cons: Not a lot of storage. No screen, thus no video or photo support. Bundled with lousy earbuds.

Apple iPod Shuffle 4G review

Stuff.tv
16 September 2010
  • Summary: Is Apple’s ‘war on buttons’ finally over? After confounding millions with its buttonlesss mouse and trackpad, it seems Apple’s purge finally went too far last year.

Apple 2GB iPod shuffle (fourth generation, late 2010) review

Macworld UK
8 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I’m on the record somewhere as saying that my favourite iPod of all time is the second-generation (2G) iPod shuffle . There was just something about that little guy, with its clip-on body and its circle of easy-to-navigate control buttons, that I found irresistible.
  • Pros: On-device controls, VoiceOver navigation, long battery life.
  • Cons: Awkward to clip on clothing, no way to lock out controls from inadvertent bumps.

  • Pros: Pequeno., Leve., Resistente., iPod mais barato.
  • Cons: Sem visor., Poucas músicas.
