'Its indoor video quality is poor, and without even basic controls for brightness and contrast, there's nothing you can do to compensate for bad lighting.'
'Slim design with larger screen.'

'I plugged several pairs of headphones into the new nano and I was as pleased as ever with the sound, playing MP3, AAC, and AIFF files.'

'In PC World Test Center audio tests, it netted a signal-to-noise ratio score of 82 decibels--just a shade below the latest iPods and the top-ranked Creative Zen X-Fi --as well as a barely registering harmonic distortion and noise level of 0.01 percent. '
'Even without any of the whiz-bang options or noise-cancelling activated, music is full-bodied and vibrant. '
'Genius feature creates on-the-go playlists around a single song.'

'the screen is bright and sharp--due in part to Microsoft's decision to use OLED and keep it smaller.'
'The FM radio tuner that Microsoft has always waved over Apple’s head is now joined by an HD radio tuner to tap free, higher-quality terrestrial radio signals alongside your MP3 collection.'
