Advantages: easy to use, easy to put music on, very durable, good price, lots of colour choices
Disadvantages: can't think of any!
I was a bought a 4th generation nano for Christmas one year, 8 GB and fell in love with it, I took it everywhere and used it everyday. I loved the easy layouts on the screen and the cool click wheel, although sometimes I do find it difficult to click on one, I end up getting stuck above or below a choice I want because it goes too fast or slow sometimes!
The iPod is very durable, mine has taken a few tumbles, and is okay to just leave roaming around my bag all day and is still in pretty good condition, except one or two very faint scratches that aren't very noticeable on the chrome body.
This iPod lasted me for about year because the next year I got a 5th generation iPod with 16GB as I ran out of room from my 4th. I'm sure it would have lasted for longer too but I have sold it on and don't know how it's doing now. I prefer the chrome effect of the 4th generation much more than the new casing of the 5th.. However the 5th does come with more features like games, shaking to change songs, tilted screen, and a video camera, which for me is useless so it probably would have suited me more to have a 16GB 4th generation but as long I've got music it's fine really.
Compared to the Classic iPods, I think these are much better because they are easier to hold and the album cover art looks so much nicer as it fills up the entire screen. The only downside to this is that it makes you obsessive about the album cove art on your iTunes.
You can get a short message or name etched into the back too which I think is a really cute touch as it makes them feel more personal, although could make it difficult to sell on.
iPods are extremely unique to other mp3s on the market because of the range of colours and importantly the click wheel which works by a heat touch, which does make it difficult if your hands are cold or your wearing gloves. I would recommend an iPod to anyone who is thinking of buying an MP3 as they give you everything you need and more, I would recommend this one most as its main job is just music whilst newer variations have lots of added features.
Summary: I would be lost without my iPod!
