I'm thinking of getting an iPod but i can't decide which one to get. Both have its pros and cons. What I'm most concerned about is its durability. I hear the nano is a lot easier to scratch and I'm disappointed to hear that because thats the one i was leaning toward. Can i get some of your opinons on these ipods.

The nano might scratch more easily, but it's only scratches. Any device you use regularly will get dings, dents, and scratches.

If durability is your concern, then go with the nano. Flash memory-based players will survive far longer than hard drive-based players with moving parts.

It also depends on how much space you'll need. If you only need 2-4GB of space, then the nano is a good choice.

I have a 6gb iPod Mini w/ a Pac Rim Magnesium hard case.

Can't be beat. Lightweight, scratch-resistant, solid battery life, 6gb capacity. You won't be sorry.

I have a 5g Ipod video and they too scratch very easily just like a nano, but if you hate scratches like me I recomend one of these: Invisible Shield They are just like the site says.. bulletproof

honestly all ipod's suck

but thats just my opinion


my friend bought an ipod nano



first thing is its not worth the money

around $200 for 2 gigs
i know it changes the format of the song to fit more, but thats still really not alot of space

itunes sucks more than anything in the world, just for itunes i would never get an ipod

the color screen really isn't all that great, trying to put photos on there ended up deleting every single picture on my computer, that really pissed me off

the thing seemed to scratch more easily than anything else, my friends looked like it went through a tornado

then he dropped it one day and put this dent in the back that completely fucked it up

the battery life didn't last long at all, and the only way to charge it was through a computer, i thought that was gay

the whole thing just pissed me off

this is just my experince with one of these things

if your like a skateboarder or something then this thing is pretty small and shit and easy to skate with but other than that apple is an evil corporation ph34r.gif

The 3rd Gen IMHO was the best thing to ever happen to Apple.
The Nano is by far the WORST.

Try and get a 40Gb Photo, even the U2 Version...that was sexy..
The 5th Gen is incredible, but a little over the top.

As for you people that say 'iTunes Sucks', the by far better alternative is EphPod, Completely Free. 100% better than iTunes..you can download news to your notes section and organise your calanders...Recover lost songs, and completely rebuild the iPod after a whipe...

Mind if I ask where you bought it and for how much?

Anyway, back to the question. I personally think the Nano is a rip. Sure, it's tiny, but it holds so few songs. Why either
A)Slap down the $300 for more battery life, many more songs, and a bigger screen
or
B)Get a used one, like a 3G on the cheap.
Almost no one wants old B/W iPods, so they are really on the cheap. You might want to take a look at them on eBay.
Sure, the full size iPod is bigger, but, in my opinion, it's a much better value and much better constructed.

I just got a black Ipod Video 30GB last week. *score*

it's awesome, the video resolution is great, and you gotta love the color.

you can get a $30 discount at apple.com if you are a student: http://store.apple.c...outingpage.html

plus about $15 in tax mad.gif
my total was $285 shipped.

I would never buy one on ebay as it seems ebay has become the palace of scams lately.

Agreed. I love my 3rd Gen iPod. Even if it is only 15gb and doesn't play videos or any of that shit.

Unfortunatley, I've only got 500MB free on it, and it's my birthday in a few days, and that space will probably be lost. My only chance is to buy a bigger HD for it and upgrade. It's half the price of buying a new one, and by far much cooler to have a 60-100gb 3rd gen iPod, in my opinion.

My Ipod Nano is small. I like it. Sure I can only listen to music on it and it only hods like 500 songs. But honestly, who needs more then 500 songs at a time? And who the hell is thinking watching movies on a tiny little IPOD is a good idea???

you wouldn't even believe how good the quality of it is. I enjoy while i'm in bed trying to go to sleep, and i can just turn it on and watch it in the comfort of my bed.
