    I ummed and arred for ages between this and a nano. I wanted to get an mp3 player to keep me motivated when running and my old mp3 player had no clip with it and I was fed up of sticking it in my bra. With then nanos you can get an armband to strap them onto your arm but I've heard tales of them constantly falling down so went for a shuffle.

    The shuffle has a great clip so that you can attach it to your t-shirt or trousers. Its so small and lightweight you don't notice its there which is ideal. The earphones do occasionaly come loose but not too often and I'm not going to bother changing them.

    I've got about 100 songs on it and believe it will fit around double that on. The controls are very user friendly and you can easily skip tracks or adjust volumne without having to look at which button you're pressing. The battery lasts for over 12 hours and then charges up again by connecting it to your computer. The lead for this is included. However you can't listen to your ipod while its charging. There is no screen so you can't see which track is playing or search for a track other than just skipping through till you find the one you want. If that would be a problem for you then you'd be better off getting a nano.

    If you are a runner, then this HAS to be on your shorts somewhere. Steve Jobs has freed up the lone-runner experience over the past few years. Only 4 or 5 years ago my right hand had a Sony Waterproof Cassette Walkman velcro'ed to it (if the Walkman was clipped to your waist it jumped and warbled too much) which also meant to carry a water bottle tied up both your hands.

    The first generation iPod Shuffle was a revalation, not only could you carry more music than you needed even for a marathon but it fitted into the key pocket on most running shorts. (but your house key was relegated to being tied on to your laces)

    Now with the new version, you can clip it to your shorts and feel no bulk or weight atall whilst running along to all your best running and motivational tunes. And your keys can go back into the thoughtfully placed pocket on your shorts.

    The included headphones, like for all iPods are pretty awful and do not stay in your ears when running but other than that the new Shuffle has to be the best workout kit (and bargain) of the year.

    As of this week in the US Apple have released the Shuffle in a number of different (bright and terrific) colours. They are outstanding.....

    I bought one of these at christmas, and it is a great product! It has great sound, easy controls and a great look! But they go wrong too easily! Mine stopped working in June, so i told amazon and they wouldnt Replace it, so i had to throw it away and buy another this week from amazon. I recieved it, and it was defective, and the Sound was crackly, and often the right headphone doesnt work.

    I told amazon and they told me they wouldn't help and i needed to contact apple!

    That made me very angry! A day old and they wouldnt replace it

    (In the end i wrote an angry email and they said they will)

    So its a really great product, Holds all the songs you need, and is very very small

    But i am on my 3rd one this year!!!

    At a shade under fifty pounds the player is one of the least expensive on the market, but unlike many of it's competitors, Apple have not made a product which looks or feels "cheap." The controls are well laid-out and the interface, even without a screen, is completely intuitive and essentially foolproof, and can be operated one-handed without looking, and therefore seems squarely aimed at the runner / gym-goer / mountain biker market, and it is perfectly suited to this role - the relatively low cost, simple, tough construction and low weight make the Shuffle attractive to the sort who might be afraid of smashing the much larger and more expensive iPod Video to bits - the Shuffle's integrated clip keeps it firmly attatched to your jacket whilst bouncing over rocks on your bike, and unlike its larger sibling, the shuffle won't slowly work its way out of your pocket during an energetic run, so you'll be spared the tragedy of becoming suddenly acquinted with your iPod's innards, and worse, being obliged to gather them up from all over the pavement...

    The software allows the player to fill itself with randomly selected songs from your iTunes library, but also has a command to choose higher rated tracks, mixing personal favourites with tracks you probably don't listen to as much, which is an interesting way of being introduced to the many hundreds of tracks we all have stored on our computers which we've unfairly overlooked. Furthermore, the software can automatically convert higher bit-rate mp3s and AACs from your library into 160 kbps files for storage on the Shuffle without affecting the original files.

    At the time of writing this review there are 68 others already on here, but I thought I would tell you of my own experience with the ipod shuffle.

    I go the gym and used to have a MP3 player - just a basic "memory stick" type that I plugged into my computer to recharge and I could drag & drop songs onto. Unfortunately it died so it was time to look for a new one. Now I was undecided whether to buy a basic model by a less well known company, or go for a leading name. It seems to me that if you're prepared to go for a relatively unknown manufacturer you can get a basic mp3 player for half the price with twice the memory, but eventually after much deliberation I plumped for the apple ipod shuffle, swayed by a combination of the reputation of apple & (hopefully) a better build quality.

    I have had it just over a week now and I think I have made the right decision.

    Yes, there is no screen, but I knew that when I bought it. I know from my prior experience at the gym that I just tend to switch it on and let it play so I didn't really need one. Also, I have a mobile phone that takes pictures, plays videos, games etc and I hardly use any of those features so I figured I wouldn't need a screen to watch tiny videos on. The earphones are great - several reviwers say they fall out but I've used mine on the treadmill, rower, cross trainer, exercise bike and wave machine and they've stayed in throughout! I've got about 14 hours out of it before I had to recharge which is impressive, and although initially I missed the simplicity of the "drag & drop" method of my old mp3 player, its just a question of getting used to itunes and once you have it seems simple enough.

    All in all, an excellent purchase and having never had any previous experience of apple or ipods I am very pleased with my purchase.
