I adore my shuffle, 3d generation. It is always with me at the gym, or when I do housework. But the most amazing thing about it is that after I accidentally put it in the washer and dryer, it still worked!

I love this little guy - I listen to music only sparingly, mostly I listen to audio books - I had no problem downloading from Audible - one thing to be aware of, though - it is cheaper to purchase books through Audible than ITunes. Audible has directions on their site that tell you how to purchase from them and still download through ITunes.

I just LOVE my new shuffle. Easy to use, convenient to carry (especially on the morning walk) - the only problem is remembering to place it back on its docking station so I don't misplace it. If you're thinking about buying a starter iPod, this would be perfect.

I had bought these two ipod shuffles for my fiance and my mom. My mom always wanted one for around the house and outside gardening. She love it when she got it for her birthday. My fiance love it when she got it for christmas because she now can have her favorite music with her all the time. They both are not into electronics and like how simple it is to use. However, they both needed help getting their favorite songs on them.

Key points FYI:

Must download itunes media player to sync with the ipod shuffle (Free, website given)
Can rip songs from CD's
Can add previous music you already own in mp3 and WMA formats.
Will convert from any other formats that it reconizes
Can download songs from the itunes store as well ($0.99 per song)
Itunes gift cards are sold just about anywhere they sell ipods ($15+)
(No use of credit/debit cards online)

240 song capacity is a lot for changing out different songs.(Not enough, get the 2GB ipod shuffle)

4 hours to charge but 12 hours of continuous play (just like it is
supposed to)

There are protective coverings(the aluminum is the best) out there for this device at Radio Shack for people like my fiance who has the tendency to break things she owns. (Must remove the covering, however, when charging so the ipod shuffle can fit into the docking station)

Overall, great gift or buy for anyone who is not into electronics but loves their music, as long as someone can set it up for them if they dont know how. The best smallest player out there giving the advantage for anyone who can take it anywhere comfortably.

I have a regular 40GB iPod, but only about 10GB of songs, and only really listen to about 2GB of them on a regular basis. The regular iPod is therefore a waste for me, uses more batteries, is heavier/bigger, and generally overkill.

I wanted something for my runs, and my old shuffle (which I didn't really like) broke, so I thought I would try this new one as my wife has one and likes it.

This design is superior, the built in clip negates any need for an armband like the old design needed, and it is so small and light you don't even know it is there.

The battery life on it is fantastic - I use it for my walks to and from work each morning, on my runs, and at night when I play poker - and it still lasts about three days for me on a single charge.

I don't use the headphones that come with it, so I don't know if they are any good, and there are some odd volume issues with the unit when you first start it up (that might be a settings issue that I'm not aware of - it starts off very low) - but otherwise perfect.

If you don't like listening to the same music over and over, don't care about video, don't care about seeing the song details - then the iPod Shuffle is all you need - and it is inexpensive too - get one.

I got this in August for my birthday.... It is great and very easy to use. Mine is pink and I love it. GREAT for young and old. I am 33 years old but would also be nice for a teenager or younger... Clips nicely to your clothes to make it very handy to use.

The software is a little cumbersome, though; not streamlined enough. All in all, perfect mp3 player. Clips easily to your person, doesn't skip and boasts great fidelity. Inconspicuous jams! It's also ergonomic enough to where you don't have to look at it to use it. This should be the only flash-based mp3 player you need.

I love this little IPod. It is very hardy after a few days I accidently dropped it in some water and it still plays ;like new. I put both music and books on it. I love the clip, the size and the clarity of sound. It was my first IPod.
Some of the directions for setting it up could be a lot clearer otherwise it is a great product and a good price.
