Apple iPod nano (3G) 4 GB
Advantages: Small. Lightweight. Good screen.
Disadvantages: Not practical for watching videos
This was my first ipod and since then i have tried many others, but none have come close to beating the ipod nano 3G in my opinion.
The ipod is sleek, stylish and most importantly fits perfectly into any pocket making it an easy way of listening to music on the go, unlike modern ipod touches which are cumbersome in comparison. This makes it great for using when excercising and there are arm bands you can get to put it in without ever feeling it is in the way. The screen is excellent and very clear, showing album covers in vivid colours which look good even on low brightness levels. I would suggest buying a case or pouch to go with it as the shiny back is particularly vulnerable to scratching and you will want to keep great product in top condition.
I thought the jukebox style of album covers was a really nice touch, enabling you to easily see what albums you have and quickly access your music. The ipod software is really easy to use and the ipod's settings can all be controlled via your computer and itunes. I would also like to mention i had no problems with battery life, if you keep the brightness below 50% one charge can easily last you a few days.
Despite Apple trying to use the nano's videos as a selling point i found this was one of it's few downsides. The screen is too small to watch videos or films for any length of time as it becomes uncomfortable and awkward. If you want an ipod to watch videos i would suggest a newer one with a bigger screen. The same goes with apps; you can get simple games and nike+ (fantastic running aid) but if you want an ipod that offers more than just music go for a touch.
But for people who want a fantastic music player, at a relatively cheap price, i would recommend this every time.
Summary: Perfect ipod for people who just want to listen to music.
