When i bought the iPod Nano 5G I thought it was the best music player in the world. I took it everywhere and stuffed it with music, videos and photos. After about a month i noticed a couple things about it that annoyed me. Firstly, setting the alarm to wake you up with your favorite songs from a pre-organized playlist was torture. Second, you can't delete songs directly from the device itself, you can manage this with iTunes, same goes with just about everything except the videos you film and voice recordings you make. There are many other little details that are annoying, but all-in-all, it's a pretty good music player. The design is fascinating, the fact that you can film is thrilling, the screen resolution makes you curse the mp3 you had before buying this one. It's truly a work of genius, and very small and light. Being easy to use, you can get around your files pretty fast. I personally enjoy rotating it and seeing the Cover Flow appear, very nice feature. So if you're thinking about getting an iPod, get this one. Compared to the other models, this is the lightest, slickest, cutest model i've seen. Apple just finished designing the iPod Nano Touch, which in some cases is nicer cuz its smaller, but i would buy this ipod over the new one any day.
