One i short of a Pod?

AdvantagesSimplicity, looks, sound quality, robust.

DisadvantagesBattery, Formatting, iTunes.

"...one? ********************************* The guys and gals at Apple are a clever bunch of people. MP3 players are by no means a new thing, I had one of the first ones years ago that only held about 6 songs and lasted about an hour before the batteries died. Cool gadget, but pretty useless in terms of usability. Of course, as a product they evolved of the last few years but what Apple did was to put it in an incredible easy to use and visually attractive ..." Read review

Sexy, but Sophisticated

AdvantagesLooks Sexy, great sound quality, quick to use

DisadvantagesFeatures aren't exactly amazing, expensive

"...the MP3 player for you! Apple have cleverly packed all of the originals iPod’s best features into this mini version, oh, and when I say mini, I mean mini! The iPod is fashionably compact and it’s sleek shape fits right into your back pocket. Or if you don’t have a back pocket, then why not slip your iPod into your belt clip and look even more stylish? The free components that are included in your purchase are: Belt Clip IPod Dock Connector ..." Read review

Mini-Marvel

AdvantagesSophisticated, sleek and sexy

DisadvantagesBattery life, and cost

"...be user friendly. Along come Apple with the iPod and revolutionised the MP3 player market with a stomping size hard disk of 60 gb that holds 10,000 songs and a Microsoft-esque interface that even your granny could use. I have always been sceptical about the Apple. Who needs so much space a cost of £200. Almost as quickly as the question could be answered Apple stormed onto the market yet again with the iPod mini. ***Why have mini when you can have ..." Read review

Sleek & Sexy

Advantagesgreat looking, lots of cool extra features, loooads of memory

Disadvantagesslightly unreliable, expensive, security issues

"...new design termed ‘earbuds’ by Apple – although these do also make it clear to potential muggers that you have about two hundred quids’ worth of equipment in your pocket. Another great advantage of the iPod mini is its technical designs. One player can hold almost 4GB of music – that’s 1000 songs of four minutes each. This is only a fraction of the capacity of one of the larger iPods, which can hold up to 10 000 songs, but to be honest this doesn’t ..." Read review

My little friend Diamond review

AdvantagesGreat sound quality, easy to use, cool colours, small and easy to transport

Disadvantagesbad instructions, battery life isn't great.

"I originally bought a Rio MP3 player in Birmingham. This was great, though the memory wasn't very big and I would have had to buy a memory card (which was reli expensive)! However, after having had it for approximately a week, and it played up, then wouldn't turn on. I couldn't take it back to Birmingham, so I had to go to my local store. This was a smaller store and had not got a replacement in stock, so they gave me a refund. Woohoo! A hundred pounds ..." Read review

iPod therefore I am!

AdvantagesGreat sound, easy to use, stylish, small, lots of space

DisadvantagesErm.... people see it and mug you>?

"...need to download iTunes from Apple or install it from the CD that hopefully comes with the iPod. The software is easy to use as a player, a burner and a download store. You need to register a credit card to access the store where you can purchase individual tracks or complete albums and audio-books from 79p each. Once installed - which does not take long using the CDs provided - the computer will recognise the iPod and enable you to set up the ..." Read review

The Apple of my i

AdvantagesSize; Style; Storage capacity; Sound Quality

DisadvantagesInitial outlay; Accessorising could be addictive

"...Pack 2) Or Macs running on: Apple MacOS X 10.2.8 and Apple MacOS X 10.3.4 or later. The mini has a built-in clock, which has a sleep timer and alarm function, as well as a calendar with an event reminder facility and a To Do List. The Contacts List function is an address/phone book utilising the vCards format used by Outlook Express, which can be exported to the mini when it is set to function as an external HDD, and stored along side music. ..."

~ It's Kind of Magic ~ Review with images

AdvantagesGreat look, Reliable, Easy to use, Good features.

DisadvantagesBattery life decreases, My Itunes is broke.

"...review!! I have had my Apple Mini Ipod for nearly five years now and I think they are brilliant. My ex boyfriend brought me this back in 2005 for my birthday and I am very happy with it. I don’t use it as much as I use to now as I have a car but I do use it in there sometimes. I remember wanting one because my sister had got one a few months before and I thought they looked really good. They weren’t the newest Ipod’s out but it just sounded what ..." Read review

SMALL BUT PERFECTLY FORMED

AdvantagesGreat music sound, and no longer having to haulk around CDS!

DisadvantagesER cant think of any!

"...ipod – well made by apple and is a baby version of the ipod. The mini holds either 4GB, which is the model l, bought or you can buy a 6 GB model. The difference being the amount of songs you can download onto it. With the mini l have you can hold 1000 songs – which at an approximation of 10 songs per album that would be 100 albums! Now with the larger versions these can double, and triple or even quadruple! The mini comes in 4 colours ..." Read review

Ipod mania...

AdvantagesSmall and snazzy

DisadvantagesObvious

"...mania kicked off and then apple came out with the ipod idea and it was a big success. So there you go the reason MP3s kicked off… ~~~Why choose the mini ipod?~~~ Well like many people you may just get sucked it and buy it because everyone has one but if you look at the facts I can tell you why. Firstly small and lightweight so fits in your pocket and hardly weighs a thing, in my opinion that's great! The mini ipod looks bright, cheerful, young, ..." Read review

No regrets

AdvantagesSmall size, good storage, easy file transfer

DisadvantagesMethod of control/selecting, Battery life

"Granted, I didn't buy - I won it - but I have absolutely no regrets on buying the tickets. The iPod mini is a stylish MP3 player that has the capability to store around 1000 songs. Mine is a blue one, and it currently has around 900 songs on it, with almost 200Mb of storage space left. That’s at least three average length albums. Being a lover of music, it’s actually, now, quite hard to contemplate how I managed without this little gadget. GOOD ..." Read review

Apple iPod Mini

AdvantagesTeeny tiny, array of pretty colours

DisadvantagesExpensive, new model just launched, battery life, rubbish instructions

"...People tend to go with Apple because they have a good reputation but Ive seriously fallen out with them, because I think that the people who rush out and buy their products straight away get screwed over in the long run when they lower prices and upgrade products. The most loyal customers end up getting the worst deals. Thanks for Reading! :o) ..." Read review

Another byte from the Apple

AdvantagesSleek, beautiful, uncompromising

DisadvantagesBit heavy for the size

"...this little baby. The Apple iPod mini is delicious enough to eat. Available in 5 sexy metallic colours (mine is metallic blue), there's no doubt about it that this is the ultimate in stylish accessories, outdoing it's larger sibling and any other MP3 player even trying to make the grade. For easier use, if you are familiar with the original iPod, it works in exactly the same way by synching effortlessly with iTunes, which, in itself is superb. Mini ..." Read review

High hopes I had

AdvantagesCan strut along most of the time to music now, v cute

DisadvantagesLow battery life is infuriating, will be out of date v quickly

"***********Review has been updated as with annoyance for product************* I was thrilled with my ipod mini when I first bought it. Utterly thrilled! I bought it the day after my birthday in March, convincing myself that I was allowed to buy a present for myself (even though I had already spent the money on a new dress to facilitate going out) I got a green one, as I thought the other colours were a bit tacky looking (no offence to those ..."
