Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewExcellent

  • THE GOOD

    The second-generation Apple iPod Nano takes on a new scratch-resistant aluminum body, which is available in a variety of bright and shiny colors; it's still superslender but more durable, thanks to a seamless construction. It supports photos (with thumbnail grid) and album art and has great sound quality.

  • THE BAD

    The iPod Nano still doesn't play video, not that you'd want to watch it on the small screen, and there's no built-in FM tuner or recording capability; not all color options are available for all memory sizes.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    The second-generation Apple iPod Nano is like the successful offspring of an iPod Mini and a first-generation iPod Nano. It's small, stylish, user-friendly, and competitively priced--a great player all around and suitable for a variety of users.

ipod nano second generation

the ipod nano 2nd generation is a very useful item when your bored and have nothing to do, or when you just want music to listen to. the ipod nano is very convenient because unlike other mp3s or ipods it is very slim and not very thick, so instead of carrying around it can simply fit in any pocket.this ipod has many features like, storing photos, games, stopwatch, volume check, a clock, and other things. the only thing i dislike about this item is the small screen. anyways this is a great ipod.

Apple Ipod Nano Gen 2 Silver (2GB)

This item is perfect for working out, such as running, since it is such a small mp3 and it uses a USB stick for memory, not a hard drive disk like the Ipod classic which can scratch if jostled around to much when exercising. I find that with most Nano's you don't really need the video because the picture is always so small and they have limited GB s. If your looking for a video player go with the Ipod classic or touch.

Ipod Nano 2gb 2nd gen

Things I like about the ipod nano obviously are what others like. The portability (Slim), it's sleek, powerful and holds a ton of songs, very easy to make playlists from the Itunes software. Itunes is a pretty decent program although any songs bought from Itunes is locked to your ipod only. Can't use them in your phone, and other mp3 players you may own. Which is complete BS.

The battery life on the ipod is pretty decent and should come with a wall charger as well as the usb connection cable to charge since you obviously don't have access to a computer at all times. I love that these don't use batteries at least in the disposable sense.

Something I think they should work on is letting you make a playlist outside the computer a little easier. I'm still a little shaky on the "On the Go" playlists you can do directly on the ipod. It should just be a simple "Click on the songs you want in your playlist". That would make it easier to listen to what you want. Especially if you have a Ipod Video or larger storage ipod.

I don't know if it's just my ipod or what, but every pair of headphones (Non Apple) I've hooked up to the ipod, seems to jiggle it's way out of the hole. Like they don't click in quite right like Apples headphones. Maybe it's only my ipod but I'd definately like to change to some black Sony or bose headphones in the future.

One thing with the mp3's that you can put on this device that makes me mad is their own compression file. M4a's are a pain in the butt. If you want a lot of music on your Itunes library and you dump all your old CD's onto it, it converts all of them into M4a files or AAC format. This isn't a big deal if you only plan on using your ipod and don't want to use the music files for other mp3 players as most mp3 players don't support m4a's. Why can't everyone just use mp3's?

Another pet peeve of mine is the amount of hassle it is to share music with others. Sure some say it's "illegal", but if my friend wanted me to have a cd he could just give it to me. With an ipod, it's an involved process to find that mp3 or m4a file. And that's only if they have their ipod set to hard disk usage so it shows up on "My Computer".

Other than those little things, I love my ipod. It's pretty much the best thing that's happened to music since the CD. Having 2000 songs in your pocket at the touch of a button in a sleek platform is astounding. We go back like 7 years and see people running with CD players with electronic skip protection, eating up batteries, and the bulkiness of it all, it's just great to see where we've come from in terms of portability. Goodbye wallets of CD's and searching through them to find what you want, than after finding it, find out your cd is scratched. Yep, Ipod is here to stay.

iPod nano 2nd generation 2G

The iPod nano is a nice MP3 player to use in a variety of ways, such as portable music and room sound with a docking speaker system. The display allows you to choose a musical selection, or remember the artist or song name.

The main problem with the iPod series of MP3 players is the user-unfriendly iTunes software. It does normal things nicely, but it is very dificult to customize several iPods on iTunes without destroying the setup on one iPod. It does not allow you to pick and choose songs easily. On all other MP3 players, music is loaded and moved easily as files, but iTunes limits what you can do with your music.

I wish that Apple would learn from every other manufacturer and make their MP3 players (iPods) easier to use. If they could do that, then their products would go from Good to Excellent.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY THE NANO

Ipod nano is the best thing to happen to happen to digital music since the iPod itself. I bought this in hopes to have the next cool thing out there, ( i had a mini before and sold it to buy a nano because i didn't have 1000 songs and i wanted to have pictures)

When i first got it it was GREAT, i plugged it in and all the sudden within about ten minutes it was updated with the latest software and it had all my music and pictures on it. Then things went bad.

I was going on a trip that day and when i was back i noticed my iPod nano was scratched. it had not been abused, or even near something that could have scratched it. Go to any store with one on display and you'll see that pretty much whenever you touch it it scratches. YOU MUST BUY A SKIN AND SCREEN PROTECTORS OR IT WILL BE SCRATCHED UP LIKE AN OLD RECORD!

Because the screen is just under the plastic that covers the front of the nano the whole screen is very vulnerable to scartches and smudges which are very hard to get off on this certain plastic.

Positives:

small and sleek

holds all the music most people need

is great if you want pictures but not video

in my opinion sound quality is pretty good.


Negatives:

More Fragile Than a glass ornament

screen is too small for pictures

apple's customer support is really bad

no wall charger, a big problem for those of us that can't get to our usb ports easily on our cpu.


if you are looking for a great toy buy a psp. if you are looking for a mp3 player, try something else. if you must have this, get a knight's armour!
