As well are all well aware the humble iPod has been around for a few years now. When the first one came out it really did revolutionise the way we listened to music. Since that early release the technology has gradually improved and the iPods have become smaller and capable of holding more music. They have also developed new features and really moved with the times. This particular version of the iPod is the iPod Nano 5th generation 8GB. These have been around for a while now and have since been surpassed by quite a few newer versions. However for me this is one of the classics and a really great little iPod that still suits my needs just fine.
The way you use this little iPod is pretty much the same as most others. There is a simple wheel with a button in the middle. The first time you ever use this technology it does take a little bit of getting used to, but after a little practice it is so simple and so easy to use. Using the few controls you can scroll through all your music, select songs, play lists or albums to listen to, arrange all your files and do lots more. This is a very simple easy to use iPod that anyone with any iPod experience will have no problems getting the hang of.
This is a very compact little iPod. It is just over 9cm long, about 4cm wide and less than a cm thick, so all in all it's pretty small. However it does not feel like it's gonna break if you drop it, it's a solid little thing. It is very light and really does not feel heavy in any way what so ever. With an 8GB memory you can fit close to two thousand songs on there which really is plenty. The screen is quite small but it's easy to read and the display is nice and clear. There is also a little camera on this however I rarely use it as the quality is not really that good.
The battery life is pretty good, if you just leave your music playing it is supposed to last for twenty four hours, I must admit I have never actually given this a try but it does seem to last pretty well. When charging the iPod up it just takes around two hours to give it a pretty much full charge. The iPod also has a radio on which is very handy and something that I do quite like, although the reception is not always as good as you would hope.
As with all the iPod and iPhones you need to get yourself itunes on your computer. This is how you put your music onto your iPod. I have never been a massive fan of itunes but it's a mean to an end and after you get used to using it there really should be no major problems. It's pretty easy to upload music onto your iPod and once you get the hang of doing it, it really does not take long at all.
So overall this is a pretty good little piece of kit, there are better ones out there on the market but this is still a real classic iPod that should suit most people needs just fine. You can pick these up brand new for around £100 or you could get a used one for a little cheaper. If you are after a new iPod you can't really go wrong with this one.
