What customers say about "Key Specs"
Apple iPod Nano (7th Generation) 16GB Blue MKN02LL/A
  • Easy to see display , Great service and very fast shipping.
  • Works well, I even reworked a couple of videos to play on tiny screen. Bluetooth works well... Its an iPod works like I'd expect.
  • Great device. Wish it had more memory, but I use it daily nonetheless.
  • My only gripe is that there isn't the feature to keep the screen on, so this becomes a small nuisance when I am trying to switch songs because I have to turn the screen on every time.
  • This thing was too fragile to even last a month. Just being in my backpack for an hour, was enough to smash the screen in to the point where it won't even work.
  • The one thing it's hard to scroll down or up on the artist, songs etc.you if you lightly touch the wrong song it shoots you to songs with the letter of the song you hit instead. A pain in the butt.
Apple iPod Shuffle (4th generation) 2GB, Space Gray
  • 2GB is plenty of memory for our uses.
  • Enough memory for a lengthy playlist, buttons are easy to use.
  • The 2GB of memory is excellent space for around 250 average length songs (my best guess).
  • Needs more memory.
  • You can create playlists, but memory and options are limited.

  • Solid design

  • It does work as easily as my previous nano, and I love the small size. I can easily carry it in my pocket or purse
  • Perfect size for a little one.
  • Overall this is great, good size, easy to use
Apple iPod Shuffle (4th generation) 2GB, Space Gray
  • The size and clip are great so it doesn't get in the way or get lost.
  • It's the perfect size and configuration to have in a jeans pocket and listen to podcasts all day while working and working out.
  • I prefer this over other models, because of the size and the clip, which attaches much tighter than other brands.
  • I was amazed in the compact size of the shuffle and the amount of music it is capable of holding.
  • It's the perfect boom box in a convenient tiny size.

What customers say about "Features"
Apple iPod Nano (7th Generation) 16GB Blue MKN02LL/A
  • I love the fact it has a Bluetooth option, so I will be purchasing a Bluetooth speaker in the future.
  • Bluetooth signal is good and strong and it pairs with any headphone that I have r=tried to pair it with no problem.
  • It's very easy to update this on your iTunes page, (even if you have satellite Internet, which I have if I want Internet access. No other choice in my rural area)
  • My main use is the music/playlists, so while I appreciate the FM capability, I'll not use it much.
  • Disappointment: earbuds that came with it aren't the same earbuds that Apple ships with their products. It's the older style without the volume adjustment switch on the earbud.
Apple iPod Shuffle (4th generation) 2GB, Space Gray
  • Portability, decent battery life with Itunes and a good headset you can truly be in another world just about anywhere you go.
  • A good, simple mp3 player. I prefer this for listening to music while walking because it doesn't require me to remove it from my pocket to control it like an iPod Touch.
  • A good MP3 player should just act like an external drive and allow you to copy files directly to the device which makes management much easier.
  • Holds plenty of songs and the the sound quality is excellent. I have no complaints and I'm so glad I got this.
  • The only drawback is that it does not come with an electrical power adapter. It has the USB cable for the computer, but if your computer goes to sleep, it will not charge!

What customers say about "Power"
Apple iPod Nano (7th Generation) 16GB Blue MKN02LL/A
  • The charge lasts quite a while,.although I don't let the battery run down too far.
  • It is perfect. However, I ran it through the wash. It still works! But it is an clear of a picture. Charge lasts a long time.
  • A most excellent device. Very easy to use, holds more music then I will ever down load, battery last a very long time over 10 hours of continued play
  • Did not work - battery did not charge or was absent....this product turned on just fine when plugged in but immediately shut off when unplugged even after "charging" overnight. Returned.
  • Battery drains much quicker than expected.
Apple iPod Shuffle (4th generation) 2GB, Space Gray
  • At least eight hours of battery life, if not more.
  • The battery life is awsome and its more than enougn storage for the gym.
  • It doesn't have a battery conserving sleep mode. I forgot to turn it off and drained the battery.
  • The battery life leaves something to be desired.
  • Battery life is nothing like the 10-15 hours promised though.
