I reluctantly sold my lovely iPod Shuffle in order to buy the Nano but now i really dont miss the dear little thing one bit. You think you can do without a Nano until you hold one in your hands for the first time and marvel at the slim supermodel beauty of it. It's lovely...no...really lovely. The 2gb model has more than enough room for me personally. Viewing album artwork as you listen to your favourite tracks is also cool. I found the process of putting album artwork onto iTunes somewhat fiddly but p'haps that's just me... I would recommend some sort of silicon cover for your Nano as you only have to look at it wrong to scratch it. Oh? and do buy some decent earphones. Shure e2c's are the ones i always use and i cant recommend them highly enough.

As soon as I saw the iPod Nano being advertised I really liked the look of it and how small it could be. As I was saving up for it I saw many reviews on how easily the iPod Nano gets scratched easily and how the screen can break. Luckily, the bad reviews didn't put me off buying this incredible item!
Yes to a certain extent the reviews were correct about the Nano being easy to scratch, (so are mobile phones but that doesn't stop people buying them!) but investing in £20 for a selection of covers will stop that straight away. The Nano is sturdy and [touch wood!] my screen has had no problems.
The sound quality is exceptional but it does also depend on the headphones aswell. The headphones with the iPod Nano produces good sound quality.
Its not impossible to fit 500 songs on the Nano but you may find it hard! It won't take up much memory but the album/song art picture that is displayed next to the song does take up memory too, so if your only interested in putting as many songs as possible on your Nano then don't use the album/song art.
The iPod Nano is almost perfect for me! There is only one thing that is stopping it getting 5 stars from me and thats its battery life! I'm not being particularly picky but it certainly doesn't last 14 hours! It lasts a good 6 hours with the volume quite loud and having to keep changing songs. If you do buy this mp3 player I recommend you create a playlist of songs you want to listen to and hopefully you won't be in a loud enviroment and can listen to it with relatively low volume!
If your looking for an mp3 player to put your favourite songs on then i definetly recommend you buy the iPod Nano, eitha 2GB or 4GB

I've just bought mine and i can't put it down. The price is fantastic compared to everything else on the market. The screen is perfect, and your pictures look crystal clear. The sound quality is brilliant and it looks so slick. Especially the black version. I strongly suggest buying a case for it as the back will scratch quite easily.

The iPod Nano was the first ever mp3 player I have purchased from Apple, and rumours were circulating of the battery life and being easily scratched...not true. The nano's design is so sleek and fashionable so theres a worry of scratches...if thats the case, buy the cover for it! Ive had it for over a month and ive found no flaws and certainly no scratches and thats by treating it like any other mp3 player.
I recommend it to anyone, I also recommend the 4GB.

Having had various mp3/wma players....mostly bought from the far east on ebay, I thought it was time to buy my son something "decent". I had heard stories about iPods.....battery life, fragility etc, but decided that not everything you hear is necessarily correct. I bought a Nano 2gb from Amazon. I didn't open it, but gave it to my son on his birthday last week....his face was a joy to see, but then came the inevitable "can you set it up while I'm in school?" Thanks Son!!
If you're used to installing new software on a PC, then iTunes is no different, just follow the wizard. The instruction manual is not much good, so after a bit of playing I managed to sort out how everything works.
The Nano is a beautiful peace of technology...sleak looks, much sturdier than I expected and yes, if you're worried about scratches, buy a skin..........there's literally thousands out there..5 quid will buy a decent clear one on ebay.
Back to the software.....iTunes will search your pc for music and convert it to the correct format, this won't affect any other music player software ie WM player. It won't however convert protected material..ie downloaded from internet music sites. Just a few hints...if you can "cut_n_paste" on your pc, then you will have no problems..simply select the tracks you want from the iTunes library "cut" them, select the iPod icon and "paste"..simple !!
As mentioned before protected material cannot be imported to iTunes, you will have to burn this material to a CD using WM player and then re-rip into your library. You can copy direct from a CD to iTunes, again using cut and paste, but I found it is easier to rip using WM player onto your pc, then get iTunes to search again.
All in all, I was very impressed with the Nano.....I just hope 2gb is enough (for now)

I got the 2GB nano about a week ago and have used it everyday. I left the plastic cover that was stuck to the screen on and used the standard case that came with it and I cannot yet see any visible scratches. Spending 122 quid and then buying all other kinds of accessories was somewhat absurd for me, because there are plenty of other players around at the same price which give way more storage, although I will be buying a mains charger. Battery life is somewhat standard and may give you about 10hrs or more playback so long as you stop fiddling about with the controls. You get 1.8GB actual capacity which will let you load all your favourite tracks but if you are the type who prefers to listen to random songs from your full library, like me, you would definitely be better off buying a 30gig ipod or creative zen m. I definitely wouldnt go for the 4gig nano when the latter two options are avaliable at a slightly higher price. Sound quality is standard, but there are other players that play with much better quality. Build and style is excellent and unbelievably slim. You are paying about 30 quid more (compared to other players with about same capacity) just for the style, still worth it if you are an ipod fan like me!
