Great product from Apple
Apple iPod nano (5G) 16 GB
Member Name: Heids
Apple iPod nano (5G) 16 GB
Advantages: Small, lots of features, video camera plus radio, huge capacity
Disadvantages: A little tinny when played without headphones
I bought the iPod Nano 5th Generation about a year ago at the latter end of 2010 - and I am glad I did, it has lasted me a year without any problems.
I bought it online from the Apple UK Online store. The reason why I chose to do this was that I could have it engraved, and I also wanted to purchase the limited red edition, which could only be bought online. The process of paying was smooth and it was delivered in the expected time range without any problems.
Size wise it fits neatly in my hand, and in my pocket, and it is big enough to put in my handbag without getting lost in the other mountain of items I keep in it! 10/10
Sound quality is good when played through headphones - I find the quality of the sound when played without headphones a little tinny. 7/10
The menu and buttons are in the same style as all the classic iPods, easy to use and pick up for first time users, and experienced users. 9/10
Music capacity at 16GB there is the ability to hold a huge amount of music, enough that you would hardly ever get bored if you had the playback mode on Shuffle. 10/10
The Video feature is a great add-on and it records videos via the small camera on the back with ease. I don't know why this can't also be a still-image camera too, as there is a "Photo" option on the menu. 8/10
Radio - FM radio available which needs the headphones plugged in, in order to use. Good quality, allows recording which I guess is a useful feature but I don't really use it. 9/10
Extras - there also is the capability to set alarms, calendars, fitness, games, stop watch and voice memos, however I do not use these functions as I have other technology that perform this functionality better.
Since I have bought the 5G, the 6G has come out, which is a lot smaller in size, almost like the Shuffle. Looking and using both products, I actually prefer the 5th generation, I like the fact it is that bit bigger (I am less likely to lose it!) and ergonomically it feels better in my hands to use.
Summary: Would recommend this MP3 player to anyone who wants something functional, without being too fussy
