Still The Best iPod Nano Released
Pros: Large High-Resolution display, VGA Video Recording, Durable, Great Value, Sexy, & FM Radio
Cons: Click wheel continues to shrink, Slippery, Can not take still pictures,
The Bottom Line:
This iPod is great for all music lovers, but will appeal most to the younger crowd, and "tech newbies"
Even after the announcement of the 6th generation of the iPod Nano, the 5th generation still seems to come out on top of the Nano line as the best iPod released, along with being the sexiest and best value in the Nano line. This iPod is the first to feature a video camera, and it records VGA videos very well, the quality of the video is amazing, and comparable to many low-end and mid-range Digital Video Cameras. The battery life on this generation of the Nano is the best so far, after owning every generation in the iPod Nano line, I am most pleased with my purchase of the 5th generation. The radio works well, but only works when the headphones are plugged in. There are many accessories available, and can be found almost anywhere. The screen is unbelievably high resolution, so its great for viewing photos and watching your favorite TV shows and Movies available for download in the iTunes Store. The iPod is rather "slippery" compared to other iPod's due to the coating around the aluminum to give the iPod a glossier and sexier look. The screen size has increased from the previous generation of the iPod Nano, and as a result, the click wheel has shrunk, which isn't much of a compromise, considering the click wheel is still very usable, and a good size for anyone! The iPod is very durable, as I have dropped it many times on multiple surfaces, and i have yet to discover a scratch or dent of any kind. This iPod comes in many colors, and comes in 2 storage sizes. a 8GB version that is available for $149 from the Apple online store, and a 16GB version that is available for $179 from the Apple online store. The 16GB model is a better value, because for $30 more, you are doubling the storage space which results in more music and videos for you to enjoy on the go! Overall, this iPod is one of the best purchases you can get for the price, and the iPod family is still the best in the business. You won't regret your purchase.
