Review from a runner,
This review is from: Apple 4 GB iPod nano - White (1st Generation) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
This gaget is a great way to take your entire library out with you when you exercise. Most people are aware of the plusses... I thought I'd write up what I think are negatives.
-- I didn't like how you have to purchase a sleeve to carry the ipod in. Most mp3 players come with this accessory. (You also have to purchase other accessories, which I think is a racket)
-- Choosing which songs or playlist you listen to is difficult when you're on the move. My other players have buttons that are easy to feel and navigate once you learn where they are.
--For the same reason, it's also difficult to change the volume.
When running, I actually prefer my older mp3 player that doesn't hold as many songs as my ipod. I think if I had known it was so difficult to search and change the settings while running I'd have chosen a different player.
