Summary: It is hard to go wrong with an iPod. As basic entry level electronics go, it is pretty simple. I've never been a fan of how impossible it is to find a particular song on one of these, but for my 8 year old daughter, it is just fine.
Excerpt: I use this for running after my old model ipod died in an unexpected rainstorm. The size and clip function are great for using during exercise. The controls are hard to futz with while running. Though they have made it relatively easy the small size of the buttons makes accessing playlists while on the go difficult. But, great to just turn it on and go.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Long Battery Life, Sleek/Compact
Summary: I was warned that wiggling and jiggling could advance the music. Not so for me. The Mini is with me for long runs, lifting, cardio, cleaning, and gardening. I went through one set of headphones after a year, but the set with my iPhone fit and solved the problem. Clips on very well.
Summary: The Easter Bunny brought these for my children (9 and 6). I down load iTunes music and my kids are sad that it will not load onto their MP3 players. These are perfect for them to be able to share music I have already downloaded as well as some of their favorites.
