There are a few negative reviews here, whether or not they are by people who have used this new Ipod or not does not matter. Those of you who have used one in the past will know the pros and cons, and this is probably Apple's best yet. I'm not a huge fan of thin styled phones, ipod's etc, and this is easily one of the smallest, but it looks good, and as most people think 'smaller is better', then they should be very pleased. The price is also nice and competetive, especially considering the video playback, and memory capacity. It is also simple to use, and easy to set up.

The new video playback feature works well even with a small screen, as the pixel level is high. So, everything you see will be clear as you could want it to be. You may need to convert file types in order to play your videos, but this can be done easily enough online. The battery is strong- up to 5 hours of film or 24 hours of music. The new Cover Flow feature which lets you flick through your album covers so you can choose what you listen to is nice enough, though hardly essential or exciting. There are also other extras such as games, calendar, stop watch, world times, to distract you for a while, as well as a setting to check how much space is left.

The most important thing is sound quality, and it is just as good as ever, improved if anything. You can easily tune out from the outside world of coughs and chat on the bus using this. The click wheel is slightly too sensitive, meaning you scroll past the song you want, and that is about the only fault I can find here. So for a simple, sleek, high quality iPod with plenty of space, this is the one you want

Decided it was finally time to replace my old MP3 player (an ageing Rio something or other, B/W screen, no internal memory all on SD cards) for something more up to date. Looked around and decided that the iPod Nano was perfect for my purposes. It's a brilliant little gadget; easy to use, unobtrusive size, good battery life, iTunes is simplicity itself, can't imagine how you'd get anything better...

but... has a fatal flaw. Apple have decided to limit the volume to a French regulated level which is below what the ipod can achieve; plenty of web forums on this, just look for yourself. This means that on my bike commute to work or anywhere there is even the slightest noise (outside generally!), I can hardly hear it (I can actually hear the sound of my headphones creaking as I'm walking along, over Keith Moons drumming, so no I'm not deaf). Listening to anything other than loud rock music becomes impossible and even that only just audible (forget it if the music is quite detailed). A decent set of noise isolation headphones cost nearly as much as the iPod itself, so not really an option. My wife's has the same problem so not just mine either.

It's great inside the house, perfect, but that's where I use my Hi-Fi so what good is that? I don't live in France so why is my iPod volume dictated by French law? This would truly be a product with a 5 star rating, but it's let down by Apple restricting the product for all of the countries in Europe, because of just one.

Looking at some of the reviews below its hard not to assume that some people have either never held an iPod in their hands before, or they just don't know how to use them properly.

In the right hands the iPod is one of (if not) the most versatile mp3 player out there, none of the others come close, either in innovation or style. Current iPod users will know what I mean when I say that from the second you open the box it smacks of pure quality, and feels much more solid than its plastic counterparts.

I've had 3 iPod generations, and am currently using a 4th gen 60Gb Video and the above Nano. My video is almost 2 years old, and its gone with me in the car, gym, trail riding...and been dropped twice (albeit with a good cover on it!) without any lasting effects and this new Nano so far seems to be just as sturdy. How someone could damage this thing short of driving over it is beyond me.

It's a great little bit of kit, 4Gb isn't huge, but for the quality and sheer amount of options you have for under a ton its acceptable, if you ensure that all songs are 128kb before transferring them to the Nano it will hold 1500 tracks, alternatively 4 high quality movies or 7000 photos. If you're looking for a player that will store a few hunred songs and a couple of movies whilst you're working out this is perfect, but if you want something to store all your movies, songs, photos etc, you'd be better off purchasing the iPod Videos.

All in all a compact, very user friendly device that can be used by anyone, but those with a basic knowledge of music file formats and transferring will get the best out of it.

I highly recommend tracking down one of the new nano video i-pods before purchasing. The first thing that hit me was just how small it was. Previously before video smaller always = better. Now, perhaps not so.

The screen is small and to be honest you're not going to spend a long time watching videos without straining your eyes. THe upside is that it has the same resolution as the bigger i-pods, which means no loss of quality, just size.

As always there's no replaceable battery, so once it's dead it's pretty much game over. Saying that the flash memory i-pods have much better battery life than ever before.

It's a very nifty piece of kit that just wasn't possible a few years ago. It looks cool and it sounds cool, just don't buy it for the video functionality alone.
