Today, i brought an iPod Shuffle, the 1GB version for $150
So far I definitely have no complaints. I wanted something that could hold my music when I go for a run, walking around campus, doing work, at work, etc.... list goes on. The 1GB holds about 240 4min songs according to the box.
The weight of this thing is crazy. I went for a run today and felt as though nothing was in my hand. The ear plugs, not the greatest but stil were able to stay in my ears while running.
Some people dont like the Shuffle because it doesnt have an LCD Screen. That doesnt bother me that much because it makes me worry less about breaking it and it would defeat the purpose of it being called Shuffle.
The reason why I didnt go for the larger iPods like the 20 or the 40 is for one thing, the cost, but i feel as though its a waste of space. The shuffle holds about 16 hours of music and that is more than enough for one day. So before i head out in the mornings, i'll just load up what songs i want.
Its a good buy and would definitely look into it if buying an iPod.
Any questions about it let me know.
