This review is for the 8GB iPod Nano. All the reviews for the third generation Nanos have been combined by Amazon. While this unit is very similar to the 4GB iPod Nano Apple 4 GB iPod Nano (3rd Gen) there are enough differences that they each deserve a closer look.
Choosing Among iPods
Overall, I would choose the 8 GB iPod Nano over the 4 GB nano and the 8 GB iPod Touch. This unit is priced right, and at only $50 more than the 4 GB unit it's a no brainer. Those who want to step up should look to the 16 GB Apple iPod Touch 16 GB or 32 GB iPod Touch Apple iPod touch 32 GB. I have been lucky enough to live with all these players, so I hope this helps you decide.
Hopefully Apple will soon make a 16 GB or even a 32 GB Nano available. Only the iPod Touch currently sports those capacities. Till they offer larger sizes the 8GB is the biggest option. The screen is small, but the regular buttons and click wheel allow easier volume and track changes and better use on the go than the iPod Touch.
Some may choose to pay an extra $100 more than this to step up to the 8 GB iPod Touch ...Read more ›
I highly recommend this iPod. And I'm not normally and "Apple guy".
Cover flow is so cool, although a bit slow but nevertheless it is a nice added feature. Some album covers do not load in Itunes so will not download to your player properly. This might be a glitch that Apple may address in a future software download patch (I hope).
If you are looking to purchase a Nano, I highly recommend the new third generation over the second, simply because of the added video feature and twice the memory for your money. It is definitely worth it for the added memory alone.
Overall, more bang for your buck and a nice new cool look and interface, with an all metal construction.
The product looks great otherwise. The screen is bright and clear. Can't wait until they work out the bugs so I can get another one.
