RE) APPLE IPOD SHUFFLE 1GB Purple
Amazon.com Product Description The 1 GB iPod shuffle lets you wear up to 240 songs on your sleeve. Or your lapel. Or your belt. And now it's available in your choice of remixed colors. Clip on iPod shuffle and wear it as a badge of musical devotion.
iPod shuffle pays respect to its bigger siblings with a circular control pad that puts the "go" in ergonomic. Click the center button to play and pause. Click the outer buttons to move back, skip forward, and adjust volume.
Thanks to a built-in clip, iPod shuffle goes with anything. Clip it to your sleeve, lapel, coin pocket. No matter where you wear it, iPod shuffle speaks volumes about your style.
Embrace your inner rebel: Flip the shuffle switch to mix up iPod shuffle's contents. Flip it again to play your handpicked playlists and albums in the order you synced them from iTunes.
Green means go, amber means you're low, and red means you've almost hit zero. But with up to 12 hours of battery life, the iPod shuffle may keep rocking even longer than you do.
The headphone jack does double-duty as a dock connector. Flip iPod shuffle upside-down and drop it into the included dock. Connect the dock to your Mac or PC for a quick sync and charge. Away from your computer? Charge on the go with the optional Apple USB power adapter.

I did have to replace the ear phones cause I didn't like the fit of the ones that came with the ipod. I had trouble with them staying in my ears.
You should also note that if you want your music played in a certain order on you ipod, you should make sure that you have it set up that way before you unhook it from your computer. the program lets you sort by artist, alblum and grene. depending on which you pick, that is the way it's going to play if you pick loop.
I am not sorry I purchased the ipod and I have been enjoying it since it was delivered.
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.
The problem (and hence the 3 stars) was because the battery wasn't holding a charge even when I turned it off. Sometimes I only use it once a week and everytime I went to use it, the battery was dead. So I phoned Apple and their customer service is most excellent. They said that the battery should be holding its charge and they would send me a new one. They put a hold-charge on my credit card for the new one and once I returned the old one, they would cancel the charge. They sent the new one within a couple days with an easy return envelope (they paid all the shipping). Haven't had a problem yet with the new one but I have only had for a few days. Question is: does Amazon sell inferior products or was this just a fluke? NOTE AFTER MONTHS OF USE: love the shuffle, definitely a 5 star for people just wanting tunes to move around with. Still don't know about the question if Amazon sells inferior stuff or not. One more thought for those out there just buying their first ipod: if you need to have playlists or want to use an ipod to project sound into a room - this is not the ipod for you. This shuffle is very basic with only the ability to change volume and to skip forward or backward through songs. There is no menu. I love it for its simplicity because I use it with a great pair of headphones I bought and have it on while doing housework or just laying around and wanting to listen to tunes with a nice sound.
Running at least 8.5 miles a day, 5 times a week the Shuffle is great to have! The controls are easy to use, it gets loud enough to drown out all of the people at the gym and the battery life is out of this world. I love that it can handle hours of music, also that is so small that I forget that I am wearing it on my arm. I also wrote a review one of the Shuffle arm bands that I highly suggest. I know that a lot of people love their new Ipod Touches, but I think that the Shuffle could be the most valuable Ipod because of all of the people I see at the gym using one. It makes time fly and I go a couple of weeks without having to charge it.
The one down side is the sound quality when you compare it to full size Ipod. You can really tell the difference between them. But that is just one of those trade offs for size and convinence that you are going to have to live with with the Shuffle. The rest of the unit is great to use. I know that other reviewers state that it is a little pricey compared to other small MP-3 players, and that is true, it is. But when a product works like the Ipod Shuffle 3rd generation it is worth the little extra money for the long term benefits that the product is going to deliver.
