My experience

I got my iPod nano as a gift close to 2 years ago, and I think it's safe to say I've "tested" it in almost every possible way. if you're looking for a stylish mp3 player, that can be used to keep youeself amused in the classroom as well as while trail running in the woods, you don't have to look any further.

Sound quality

The sound this little device can produce can be quite amazing. If you're one of those audiophiles, you should also consider investing in some quality headphones. Hovewer if the music itself is what matters most to you, the original ones will do just fine.
Build Quality

This is probably what amazes me the most about this device. I've dropped my iPod on wood, asphalt and even rocks countless of times, and it got away with nothing but some minor scratches. Good work Apple!

User Interface

Probably, not the most intuitive interface out there, it took me some time getting used to. If you've ever had an iPod before however you'll feel at home right away. That touch-wheel (or whatever it's called) really makes it easy to browse your music collelction, and iTunes makes syncing your iPod with your PC a breeze, although some people migh miss the "portable drive" function that other mp3 players have.
Other features

One of the things I really like about iPod nano (let alone the amazing visual design) is its portability. It's small enough you can carry it anywhere you want, it fits in almost every pocket and there are countless armbands and pouches availible for it. Its screen, on the other hand, is big enough for comfortable music browsing. I wouldn't try watching movies on it though.
I also don't quite get the point of that built-in camera. Sure, being able to film some prank your friend pulled off or a doe youv'e just crossed paths with while running is amazing, but the video quality is poor and, for some reason, taking a photo instead of filming isn't an option.
Another annoying thing is the fact that iPod nano doesnt' come with an AC power adapter, USB cable is the only way of recharging the battery.

Overall, iPod nano is a really good music player, especially if design is a priority for you.
If listening to music is the only thing you're looking for, you would probably do just fine with a cheaper device.
