Apple iPod nano (5G) 8 GB
Advantages: Brilliant Device and reliable, Very stylish must have gadget
Disadvantages: Ear phones wear down and go 'fuzzy' after a few months and are very expensive to replace
This is the perfect Personal music player. It is very easy to load music on to the device and is very simple to use. The Shape and size of the iPod Nano is very stylish and is the latest must have gadget and the king of all personal music players.
The iPod its self is around 3.5 inchs(9cm) hight and 1.5 Inch length(3.5 cm). All colours look very stylish but i went for the green.
I have had my iPod now for over 7 months. It still works perfectly and has only 2 or 3 tiny scratches. The ear phones on the iPod are really good, very bassy(which can be turned on, off, up or down) but like most earphones they do wear down after time(mine worn down after around 5 months) and the iPod ear phones them self are quite expensive to replace, Around £20-£25.
How to use the iPod:
Turning the iPod on is very easy. Press any button or turn off the key lock(the switch at the top of the iPod).
Turning off the iPod is just as simple. Hold down the Play/Pause button until the iPod turns off.

1. Press the Left or right arrows to move backwards or forwards through the playlist ('|<<' Moving backwards or to move to the next song use the '>>|' button)

Over all i think that the iPod Nano is an amazing gadget which fits in perfectly with any life-style. It costs around £106 but is worth every penny. There are little disadvantages and exceeding Advantages. It is very easy to use and the quility of sound is just amazing. I havent given 5 star rating just because i felt like it but i really do believe that the iPod changed the way of personalizing your music.
I hope this is a useful review and helps you decide weather the iPod Nano is for you?
Summary: Brillian device. Would recommend this product to any music lover!
