iPod Nano 1st generation
Well, The Nano has been around for quite some time now and I'm sure I don't need to list all the things that are great about these little gadgets, but what I will do is list a few of the best things i have found about this:
* Ease of music transfer, Whilst you absolutley DO need software to transfer files to this gadget, you do NOT have to succomb to iTunes, there are plenty of alternative free software packages available on the Interent that are faster and less bloated than iTunes.
* As with every other Mp3 player that doesn't use a touchscreen, there are consumable parts such as Batteries that wear out, Buttons that become non-responsive and screen ribbon cables that become brittle - the iPod is no exception - however it is easy to work on and parts are abundant. I have just changed over a scroll wheel and screen from a Dead car boot Nano to one i bought off here, hey presto we're in business. As with other gadgets, they work if you take care of them.
* The Operating system that the iPod Nano uses is very user friendly, it boots up in 2 seconds, is easy to navigate, and never over complicated, it's logical and minimal - everything you need is there and everything you don't need never made it on in the first place!
* EQ - now I love a decent EQ selection - and the iPod seems especially geared towards Hi-fidelity, even on such a small gadget the sounds can be breathe taking if you take the time to search for a suitable EQ, of which there are many.
I can't realy fault the iPod - and as much as I am against Apples Bid for world domination - I have to say the iPod Nano is a fine invention and works very well indeed.
If you're not inclined to buy Apple - Take a look at Sansa, they have some fantastic media players.

ipod nano 1st gen 2gb
a month ago, i have just lost my iphone 4, i had been trying to find an ipod to listen to music.
I decided to search for the oldest ipod nano, 1st generation. It works really well, it can play music and photos, but the resolution of the screen is not as good as the product these days obviously bear in mind that its first out was 2005, so it isnt that bad. In general, if you just want to listen music, thats fine, it is a good mp3 player.

Easy to use and good sound quality.
I've never used an ipod before. Cheap generic Honk Kong MP3 players yes, but never an Apple product. In fact I had always deliberately steered clear of any apple software, fearing it would somehow try to take over my PC and hog all my resources.
However after my boy bought a 2nd hand Ipod touch I was so impressed I started to to change my mind. Then after noticing the piles of CDs in my car and the empty "AUX" socket on my car radio I thought I'd give Apple a chance.
I managed to get a beaten up but fully working Ipod Nano 1st Generation for just over £10. I really don't think I need to explain what an Ipod does, just that it's very easy to use and can store hundreds of mp3 tracks. It plugs in to my car radio with just an ordinary "jack to jack" cable and if I set it to shuffle it will play away all day.
Mine came as just a bare Ipod with no accessories. Charger cables and earphones etc are all readily and cheaply available from Ebay.
As far as the Itunes software goes (free download from Apple) I'm more impressed with it than I thought I would be, but still not entirely convinced. There are alternatives apparently which allow "drag and drop" functionality like all other MP3 players. I might try one of these, It's personal taste I suppose.
Anyway , if you can get one cheap grab it, you won't look back.
Ipod nano 4gb
The nano for us has always been an in between product for people that don't want the simplicity of the Shuffle or the size of the original iPod. This device does nothing to win me over in my first look.
Compared to the Creative Zen with its 2.5-inch screen, built in FM radio, the nano is clearly the weaker of the two.
Get past the hyperbole and it's just an average MP3 player.
