The screen on the 1gb are dim, spoke with apple tech. support, they won't admit to it, but many ppl have indicated to me via posts they are experiencing the screen issue. I rma mine back, had eat a 10% restock fee + shipping costs. Wish I only read about it before purchasing. I hate to say it, but I'm sure there will be an influx about this in a matter of time.

I am a new user of the iPod. My black iPod nano is the first iPod I got.I bought my nano last month. I have used it daily for about 3-4 hours. I am very happy with the performance. I hear no sound of skipping. Moreover, the nano updates real fast.

Am still learning to use the various features it provides. I recently learnt that I can easily view the lyrics of the song I am listening to.

I bought the black nano purely because of its looks. I was pretty sure of the scratches so I immediately got myself a cool red cover for it. My nano now looks all the more cool and I have no worries of scratches too.

I would surely recommend the iPod nano to my friends. But I would also advice them to purchase a decent cover for it.

Hello all,
I'm considering purchasing a Nano but was wondering if that would be the wize thing to do. I would only use it to transfer my iTunes library on to it and hook it up to my car radio. Just maybe there are better solutions for my needs ??
I need 3-6Gb of storage + a function to play all music in random sequence. I don't know if that's possible with a Nano ?
You probably need to create a playlist yourself ?

I purchased a 2g white ipod nano a month ago. However i lost it at school. I am thinking of geting a 1G i dont need much more than 240 songs, and it is a pretty decent price. every one is saying their screens are dimmer. Of course that would increase battery life, but is it bad? And i kno they will get scratched easily. But i had mine for 1 month and if you take good care of it, it wont get bad. you should alwayz keep it in a case and not bare in a jean pocket because the material will rub it.

I recently bought a 4GB iPod Nano. I have a set of Sony Fontopia headphones that produce a considerably low dynamic and poorly separated sound quality with the Nano. The phones that came with the iPod sound great as long as they're not overdriven at which point they will distort. Do you have any experience or knowledge of this condition with Sony phones and the Nano? These are the 700 series Fontopia phones and were not cheap.

I remember that when I went to a store I bought a ipod nano and I put music on it I thought it would suck more than my friend's 2Gb nano and ilounge said it wasn't good as well but when I tryed it had just everything the same as rest of the other nanos. I love this product really much and if you buy one you should get a case right away and when u get one don't remove the protect flim just trim the bottom so the nano soes not scratch in the front and the ipod nano rocks!

I feel the need to mention the case Apple includes with the Nano - High quality, touchy-feely finish, perfect fit and the ability to operate the hold-switch and click-wheel through the fabric. The screen may be hidden and the bottom edge exposed, but it seems a lot better for what it is (a freebie) than some of the £10-£20 cases out there! And no, I'm not on commission! tongue laugh

the nano is cool, but when i saw my friends nano, there was so many tiny scratches, but over all, i like it becuz it is smaller than the mini and its color screen too..and its the same price as mini even though it has smaller memory because of the features it has in it

i love my nano, besides its LOW amount of battery life. i have no idea how people are getting fourteen hours out of theirs. mine gives me at the most, like four. but thats not the point. my ipod is locked up. wont do anything. it is at the main menu, and the backlight is on. it says its locked, even tho i have been turing it on and off of lock. anyone know how to fix it?

My problem with the Ipod Nano is the non-replaceable battery period....this puts the kibosh on the entire product. After the battery dies you either have to send your nano to apple so they can send you a different nano with a working battery...or you need to buy a battery kit online that comes with tools to help you open the you need to solder the new battery into the nano since the battery is soldered. I've yet to see a review of one of these battery kits with tools or a review of the process of opening the nano with the tools supplied...but since the nano is not made to be must have to break open the case to remove the battery. Regardless of scratches on the nano if I need to literally break open the nano after a few years to keep it running....then this seems to me to be a serious downside, especially given the cost of a new 4gb nano. If you sned your nano to have to pay $65
to enroll in the battery program. Apple does not replace the battery...I'n not sure if they send you a new nano...or a remanufactured one. If I have to have my well protected nano replaced to get a working battery...why have I spent 30-40 bucks to protect the case from scratches etc? Although the Iluv battery available at target stores can be purchased when your battery dies...the Iluv attaches to the usb dock at the bottom of the nano and therefore increase the length of the nano so your existing case will not fit. Overall I think the lack of a
replaceable battery...especially given environmental a killer. Apple should be ashamed for their lack of concern for the environmental damage that a throw away product can cause. Almost every electronic product I own now at days has a replaceable sonicare being the exception. I just don't understand how these companies can make expensive products that need to be thrown-away when the battery dies...when they could easily design the product so the battery could be replaced? Damn sad if you ask me. GREED rules the day.
