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.
Excerpt: This Is A Great I pod If your just Starting out with an I POD. I Love how it Clips on to your Jacket. It Hold Large Amount of songs and Audio books that you can down load off I Tunes. Really the only problem I had was that it is small and easy to lose.
Excerpt: The apple shuffle was good for something small, light,and somewhat cheap. The design is very simple. The ipod shuffle is user friendly, you don't even need the manual to understand how it works. I bought a silver one. What is good is that it has so many colors to choose from. In addition it has a clip so it's secured. you can clip it to anything which is cool. What I didn't like about it is that it had no screen.
Why Apple...why? The IPOD Shuffle is an swing and a miss.

Excerpt: I am somewhat of an early adopter, so I have been using MP3 players for about 12 years now. Well before the first Ipod (which I also owned about 15 of and broke.) So when I got the IPOD Shuffle as a gift, I was pretty excited by its small, somewhat sleek design and ease of use. These things are all true.
iPod Shuffle is nice for portabiltiy, but is otherwise pointless

Excerpt: Okay, so I got one of these a while back and was not impressed in the least. Aside from the size/price (which is why I gave it a try - and the reason I suppose many others like them) it doesn't really fit my needs. If I am going to have a portable device that carries my music on it, I really need it to have more storage than what these provide. What I typically do now, is to carry my smart phone with me and use internet radio for more variety and more selection.
Excerpt: I have had a generic mp3 player for a very long time. Well, recently there was a referral promotion going through an on-line shopping site. The more people you invited the better the Apple prize (not a promotion from Apple) I ended up with enough referrals for the smallest, but still good, prize - the ipod Shuffle. Had I not won this, I may have never bought one. I've never really seen the point in spending so much on something when a much cheaper version would do.
Excerpt: I train for a lot of marathons and have had my IPod shuffle for about 2 years now and it goes on every run with me. I love how it is very compact. I didn't want something wtih an arm band that could cause chaffing. I just clip it to the neck of my shirts. I didn't want to have to spend a ton of money on an Ipod that I was only going to use for running so this was the right fit for me.
Excerpt: I got this ipod as a gift as a christmas present from my brother and parents. If you just want to listen to music and don't care about which song plays, then this is the ipod for you. It fits a lot fo songs when you campare it to the older versions of this. I like it. The thing that makes me laugh, and could be improved is the Voice Over (which tells you the names of the songs that are playing).
