There is problems in every MP3 players. Just live with it. If you keep thinking of the negative aspects, then you will never ever buy any MP3 players. Waiting for the perfect MP3 player, it's like waiting for snow in Singapore.

For me it's the hottest and coolest MP3 player in the market. Japan and some countries have sold out most of their black version.

If you want the longest battery life, then don't turn on the backlit, use the original ear plugs and play under normal weather like Singapore. I am sure you should know that if you use batteries in cold country, the lifespan is shorter.

Function wise, it's the easiest to control as it's using a wheel scroll. This is just my own opinion lar.

0.05 cents worth....

Is it? I still see tons of it at Yodobashi. White ones were out for 3 weeks at 1 point. But that is OOT.

Just get 1 and use it!

I love it - syncs perfectly with iTunes and battery life is pretty good for a player it's size. The display is crystal sharp. My only criticism would be the touch-sensitive control circle is a little more difficult to use compared to a full-size Ipod.

For the longest lasting battery life in any ipod, get the Shuffle... mine gives about 12-14 hours of continuous usage.

I'm looking to get a nano too but still concern about its screen problems. Does it still crack easily? I have not been following up on apple stuffs. I saw a few complains that it scratches easily. Maybe should armour plate it lol! :bsmilie: I also heard that it doesn't match the shuffle's SQ.

Oh yeah, my shuffle is durable and sounds good. Dropped it many times, shoved into pockets many times and it still sounds as good as new.

I have both the nano and shuffle and I personally think the nano sounds fuller and cleaner, not by much though. Get a screen and clickwheel protector for the nano and stick it in a case (silicon or leather), that's all the protection you really need.

No tuner, no charger. It has a usb cable to charge from a usb port. It will accept desktop chargers from other ipods through the use of an included adapter.

Why don't you guys just go check it out for yourselves?

No la. iPods only look good. If you want tuner and better sound, look elsewhere. iriver, iaudio and Sony suit your requirments and offering better sound.

Terence:
Thanks for clarifying. But i've read different reviews thou. :bsmilie:

U can get an external 3rd party tuner-cum-remote for ur iPod. AppleCentre Wheelock has it. $120.

Do bear in mind its a FM Tuner cum REMOTE. The original Apple remote with basic functionality is already $60.

been using it since oct... my first apple product. Superb menu system and ease of use in organising songs/playlists. (hahah its the 'nokia' of mp3 players.) Battery life about 12-14 hrs- satisfactory lah. Can buy 3rd party USB charger for $15 from SLS. Tiny size makes it amazingly convenient to carry around! Stock apple earbuds mediocre.
