“Life Is Random.”

ProCheap, easy to use, original idea

Consno screen, maybe too basic?

Since the first Ipod came out, all my friends have been the first in the queue to get it, and i've always stuck to my principals and avoided the mainstream, and not gone with the crowd. First i chose the genius, then tedius, now just utterly dreadful Creative Muvo (see my other review) and after...

“Do the iPod Shuffle”

published 15/03/2005

ProCheap and Easy

ConsA little too basic for some?

I have never had any desire to own an iPod. Yes, they are, in my opinion, magnificently pretty and by all accounts so user-friendly, one ends up showering them with compliments then taking them to bed. But I’ve never wanted one. I have wondered whether I might like an MP3 player of some sort...

After resisting the temptation to buy an MP3 player i've finally taken the plunge and bought myself a 512mb iPod Shuffle. We have recently moved to a house with a bigger garden and to keep me from getting to fed up while I mow the grass/cut the hedges/weed the borders/do the decorating, etc, etc...

For a while i considered buying an iPod but have been detered by the size,wieght and price of the iPods that were currently out at the time,so for me it was ideal when the iPod shuffle was introduced.

Consno LCD display, long track skip times

I bought a 512MB Ipod Shuffle as soon as they were released, as I needed a small non-disk based MP3 player to take to the gym and out jogging. The Ipod lives up to my expectations! It's extremely small, about the size of a stick of gum, and not much thicker. Being an Ipod you upload your songs...

ProMusic on the go, very lightweight

ConsCan be annoying not knowing whats on it!

I've always wanted an iPod of some sort - I had a HDD Mp3 player which was a different brand and ended up sending it back because it just wasn't worth the hassle. When I saw that I could get a 512mb iPod Shuffle free with my new 02 phone (which I was buying anyway) I ordered it straight away...

My mum bought my i-Pod Shuffle as a gift about 18 months ago and it cost £79. The reasoning for buying it was because I kept complaining that my discman was heavy and jumped around when I went jogging and the music in my gym was great if you are into acid house and RnB. I have the 512MB version...

The Apple iPod was released a while back now but one thing has stayed the same. The silly price. £250 - £350 for an MP3 player I could never spend that much regardless of style. And now the perfect product for everyone the new iPod shuffle sporting a small price of only £69.99 (512mb) to £99.99...
