Apple iPod nano (6G) 16 GB
Advantages: Compact, easy to navigate, great memory
Disadvantages: Small size could be a problem if your eyesight is not too good
I finally caught up with modern music technology about 18 months ago when I purchased the Apple iPod nano (5th generation). This model lasted one month past the one year warranty when it developed a fault with the headphones and speaker which could not be repaired. I was reluctant to purchase another iPod as I was worried it would not last much longer than the one year again but as Christmas was coming I put it on my list to Santa.
Santa did not disappoint and I was given the 6th generation in a lovely blue colour. My husband had kindly put all my music on it for me, however we were both surprised when it did not switch on as he had recently charged it to full. After charging I used it for about an hour but noticed the battery indicator had depleted to half full. The next morning the iPod was completely dead. After a few days of charging cycles and playing the iPod for an hour we took it back to Argos where it had been purchased and exchanged it for another one. This one did in fact charge to full, is retaining the battery life and I now need to charge it about once a week in order to play about 16 hours of music.
I was also worried about the small screen size particularly as I can be a bit accident prone. However it is very easy to navigate between screens, easy to select albums, artists etc and touch response is very good. The sound quality is excellent, the radio easy to tune and the fitness feature is a bonus for power walking. The shuffle function is a good addition if you wish to change tracks. There is also an automatic sleep facility which helps to retain battery life.
Overall I am very pleased with the newer version of the nano despite the battery problem I had with the first purchase of this generation. Perhaps I was unlucky to get one that had been in the shop a long time.
Summary: Great little music player. I love it!
