Yet another impressive apple product
I bought the ipod shuffle because the ipod touch just seemed a little too big and a little too involved to take with me while running. It shames me to even say that... years ago I ran with a walkman cassette player that probably weighed 4 lbs and was about 50x as big... Anyway, for my purposes, the shuffle is perfect. It is tiny, light weight, and has a clip that will actually hold it onto your clothing pretty much anywhere you want to clip it.
The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.

Quality app ecosystem
The 4th Generation iPad is only a minor improvement over its predecessor but still remains the tablet to beat. An upgraded A6X processor, Apple's new Lightning connector and a better front facing camera are the main differences. All in all this is an iterative upgrade that should only interest those who don't already own a 3rd Generation iPad.
Amazing Player for the Price
The bottom line here is this is an amazingly good MP3 player. Is it perfect? No, obviously not. But there are a lot of players on the market with fewer options for a lot more money. I spent several days researching every player on the market and the Clip Zip has the best combination of options at the best price, hands down.
Impressive array of features
Overall, the Sansa Clip Zip is an appealing value alternative to the nano or shuffle. Yes, it's not as cool-looking, and yes, it lacks some of the sexier features on Apple's MP3 players (such as the VoiceOver feature that uses computer-generated speech to tell you what you're listening to), but it delivers a lot of meat-and-potatoes functionality for not too much money.
Good format support
Low cost, good format support and expandable memory team up to make the SanDisk Clip Zip MP3 player a solid choice if you're strapped for cash. It doesn't look or feel expensive, but its rear clip is sturdy enough to grip onto clothing reliably. Looking for a primary MP3 player? We'd recommend considering a slightly more expensive player with longer battery life. But as a second or sporty music source, it's a winner.
The Zip Clip's Settings function provides an assortment of controls and options, including display brightness, the way the navigation keypad works with audiobooks, and even a nifty feature that compensates for differences in volume levels on music tracks (so that you don't get blasted away by a track that was created at exceptionally high levels). Overall, the Sansa Clip Zip is an appealing value alternative to the Nano or Shuffle.
Extremely easy to use
Hopefully the initially expensive prices will fall, because without that advantage, the Fuze looks distinctly out of sorts. It's a fine player with many worthy features, a lovely design and an interface that's extremely easy to use, but it's far from perfect. Disappointing video handling, and sound quality that doesn't quite match the competition means it has to undercut players such as the nano and Creative Zen significantly on price. Unfortunately, the price isn't quite low enough.
Huge Storage Capacity
Cowon has carved out a niche within a niche with the X7. It offers better sound quality and superior video capabilities than an iPod Classic, but it's also much bigger. The sheer size of the player is a tricky issue to scale, but if you can it offers surprisingly good value - with far greater storage than its series rivals, like the J3, at a similar price.
Touchscreen is very sensitive and responsive, makes getting around the UI easier.
The Cowon X7 is an upper mid-cost portable media player. This player has a 4.3" LCD display with 480x272 resolution, as well as a TV output. The Smart Widget user interface of this player allows you to view all your favorite widgets and info on the same page.
The X7 is a bit of a disaster
The Cowon X7 is priced at Rs. 17,500. Now let's be clear, the X7 is a bit of a disaster and we wished Cowon didn't cripple it so much. What is good about the X7 is the massive storage space, the great audio quality, customization options and the incredible battery life. But once you look past that it is all one royal mess. Its titanic dimensions make it hard to carry around. The display sucks, period. The interface sucks even more and the image gallery is a disaster.
The sound it produces is good, the screen is a pleasure to watch and the battery life is superb.
Though it only supports standard definition video and doesn't really advance the PMP breed at £230 the 120GB version the X7 is still reasonable value. The sound it produces is good, the screen is a pleasure to watch and the battery life is superb. If you have a massive media library, want a big screen and hate iTunes it's a solid enough choice.
Cowon X7 - A Costly Mistake
The Cowon X7 is a huge disappointment. Its massive storage capacity and amazing battery life coupled with FLAC support and stellar audio quality makes it a great device for audiophiles, but its negatives far outweigh the positives. A poor UI, a Resistive Touchscreen that's sluggish with its responses and lack of H264 support really hold the X7 back. If you factor in the lack of Wi-Fi or any kind of web support, the price tag of Rs. 18,000 becomes a slap on the face.
160 GB storage space
X7's design is lovely as usual but two disappointing facts about the X7 are the low resolution and the included non-standard data cable. We sure need to applaud the battery life offered and the 160 GB storage space. Finally the X7 is not more than a media player in any way as there is no WiFi support which means that you cannot web browse or have access to any of the apps. If this is a major concern for you then Zune HD or the Apple iPod touch is definitely the one for you.
Large storage capacity
The COWON products are rated highest in almost all the technical aspects of audio, video and multimedia. Let us look in detail one such amazing product from COWON, the X7. For you to make a wise decision on the product here we brief out few aspects of its predecessor, the V5 HD. X7 retains most of the features of V5 HD, say, world-beating audio quality, insane battery life and more. However, the V5 lacked Web browser, Wi-Fi and support for apps.
Pretty cool gizmo
This gizmo works great-- completely functional (I've used it about 10 times now). The only thing that isn't perfect about it is that the volume control is really difficult to press. So I have to push it against a counter top to make the volume louder-- my fingers can't get it compressed enough to do that on the fly in the pool, but it's still functional. Other than that, it's waterproof, good sound quality, and working just fine! Total game changer for my swimming.
An excellent music player, but mediocre in other areas
If you want an excellent sounding music player with 24/48 support and some extra bells and whistles like Android app support and decent video playback, this might fit the bill. But remember its limitations -- some of which might be fixable with software updates, and some of which might not.
MicroSD card expansion
In terms of £-per-GB-of-storage, the Cowon D3 Plenue is a shade more expensive than the iPod Touch, but you get MicroSD card expansion, a bigger screen, broader file support and you don't have to use iTunes. On the down side, audio content navigation is rather primitive, the UI could be more fluid, there is no camera, no opportunity for adding apps or games and the Archos 43 is cheaper to the tune of £70 in 16GB form.
Lots of new features
The candybar design and colours will undoubtedly sway many teetering on the edge of to Nano or not to Nano, and the addition of an FM radio and pedometer will go down well with those looking for a lightweight device to take jogging or to cart around as their primary media player. We doubt the video camera alone will entice that many people to upgrade, but with a range of useful features the fifth generation is the sleekest and most enticing version yet. For the price it will be hard to beat.
Popular iPod now more capable thanks to video and radio
The 4G iPod nano was an incremental update to the 3G nano that preceded it-new form, new colors, better storage, Genius playlist support, Spoken Menus, and an accelerometer. A fine, but hardly earthshaking, update. The 5G iPod nano is different. A video camera, built-in microphone, and buffered FM radio make this iPod nano a far more functional, flexible, and entertaining iPod than its predecessor. It won't replace your full-sized camcorder (or even last year's pocket camcorder).
Luxurious, compact looks
So, the new nano does everything it did before, and does it a little bit better. When you also consider the other new additions, like a pedometer, voice recording, and a great sounding FM radio with live pause, as well as old qualities like great usability and software (iTunes 9.0 is the best yet), it's easy to see what makes the Nano so lovable.
Excellent little machine
To judge the 5th generation iPod nano as an MP3 player alone would be easy enough. It's still an excellent little machine. It's strong, beautifully crafted and just a real pleasure to own. The sound quality is as good as we've come to expect from the iPod family and the screen, although too much to watch an entire film on, is fantastic given its size.
Fifth-generation refresh will likely keep the nano neatly ahead of its competition.
Yes, there's no zoom or still-photography, and no the quality isn't great, but it's another string to the iPod nano's bow and given it would be hard to identify one are of the music experience Apple could address without treading on the toes of the rest of their range neatly differentiates the nano 5G from its predecessor. Not a PMP you buy for its video capabilities, no, but the fifth-generation refresh will likely keep the nano neatly ahead of its competition.
The main selling point of this nano, apart from the music playback, is the video recording
We have no hesitation in recommending the latest iPod nano, especially with prices starting at £115. If we were in the habit of giving out half-star ratings, we'd award the nano with a 4.5 out of 5. However, we don't, so we're going to drop it down to a 4. The main selling point of this nano, apart from the music playback, is the video recording and until Apple fixes the lens real estate (and chucks in still-photo taking), we just can't award it perfect marks.
the design feels invisible; there's a whopping 4GB of storage; and VoiceOver technology lets you control playback without taking your eyes away from what you're doing.
The bottom line: The third-generation iPod Shuffle is the next best thing to an invisible MP3 player, but the quirky controls and microscopic design make it a limited recommendation.
