Summary: I purchased to use while I was working out in the garden. it is lightweight and holds quite a bit of music. Even has a clip so you don't lose it. I know it is called the shuffle for a reason but I wouldn't buy it again because you have no control of what is being played. yes it is my music and I like it all but sometimes you just want to find a specific genre.
Summary: I had an I-Pod shuffle like this for years, not sure of which generation. I loved it! This 4th generation IPod however, is to small when it comes to clipping it to something or using the buttons. When I push the next arrow I hit the pause as well. Trying to clip it, it is so small that it slips out of my fingers when I pinch it to snap on to my shirt. The sound quality is just as good. I just feel that they have made it way to small for an adults hands to use.
Summary: Just got this iPod tonight so I haven't really used it yet, but I'm kind of disappointed so far in the song capacity. I was hoping for close to 500 like the description says but I only got 326 to fit. These are average songs of 3 1/2 minutes or less so nothing extra long or anything. The capacity is actually 1.88 GB not 2 GB and I understand that, but still it holds a lot less than I had been looking forward to.
Summary: I love this little thing. It has a stainless steel finish that is sturdy. It doesn't hold as many songs as Apple says it does. I have about 200 songs on my I-pod, but it is supposed to hold 500. Overall, its great and cheap! I only gave it 3 stars because of the memory...
Summary: My iPod Shuffle 4th Generation does not hold 500 songs as advertised. The only reason I purchased it is because I thought it would hold enough songs. I was only able to sync 245 normal length songs onto it. This is not even half of what was advertised. If I was able to sync 400-450, I wouldnt be writing this review, but because it is such a huge difference, I had to say my piece.
Summary: The iPod that I currently use on a daily basis is my . The main problem with THAT UNIT for me is that there is no other option than to use the Apple earphones, seems a greedy move by Apple. When the 4th generation came along, and I heard it had buttons I started to get excited. I would be able to use the Bose In Ear headphones with it. I don't exactly know why, but I wished the second generation shuffle would become available again.
Summary: Having previously owned two ipod shuffles (3rd generation), I am somewhat disappointed with the new shuffle. The previous design was truly "perfect" -- which may account for the high dollar amount those versions are selling for. If Apple wanted to add a voice-over button, they could easily have done so on the prior design without feeling the need to "shrink" it further. When you try to clip the ipod on or off, you will invariably hit the play button.
Summary: My 2nd gen shuffle recently took a ride in the washing machine. I got this new shuffle about a week ago. My number one complaint is battery life. I use this at work and a fully charged battery only lasts 5 hours!! If the battery would last at least 8 hours, I would be very happy with the product. It's also hard to use the clip without pushing a button. Update...After using this for a couple of weeks, I have noticed it wants to play the same "shuffle" rotation.
