Apple iPod nano (5G) 16 GB
Advantages: Bright colour, small size, easy to use
Disadvantages: Might not fit all your songs on
I'm not going to go through all the technical features here, as I wont do it justice. I am just going to give my opinion about the iPod Nano 5G.
I got a beautiful green iPod Nano for Christmas 2009 to replace my old iPod Classic which I had drowned. I did choose it myself. The main reason I decided to get the Nano and not a Classic again was the improvement in capacity of the Nano - which meant I could get a lovely brightly-coloured iPod.
I am very glad I chose the Nano. It is very slim and small in size, so if fits easily into my pockets - even the tiny pockets of most ladies jeans. This makes it very handy for taking out if you are walking somewhere or commute by public transport. I also use it at the gym and it fits easily into the zip pocket on my leggings. I do have a shuffle which I bought for the gym, but I don't use it any more because the choice of songs on the Nano is so much greater due to its bigger memory.
I have used my Nano extensively with headphones, a docking station and in my car via and FM transmitter and cable. The headphones that came with the Nano were perfectly fine, but I have since replaced them with more comfortable in-ear noise-reducing headphones as I have small ears. I found the original headphones hurt my ears after wearing for an hour or so - but if you have average size ears I doubt this would be such a problem! My Nano has always worked well with my docking station and in the car, and I have been impressed with the sound quality however I listen.
I have used my Nano regularly for over a year now. I have not noticed any decline in battery performance - which had been an issue with older iPods I have owned.
The menus are intuitive and the click wheel is easy to use. I can't comment on the video recorder as I have never used it. It does strike me as a strange feature to put on an MP3 player!
Overall I love my iPod Nano and use it almost everyday. It is a great MP3 player, and fits all the songs that I could conceivable want to listen to.
This iPod is brilliant and I would recommend it. The bright colours are fun, it is small in size and has great sound quality. There are newer versions available with more features, but this is still a great product.
Summary: A great all-round MP3 player
