Best Nano Yet
Upon unboxing I noted that the unit was exceptionally thin with a nice feel to it. The user interface is Apple easy (as is usually the case with Apple) and I was able to get it up and running in a few minutes. I did note that no charger is included with the Nano but the Lightning connector does have a USB plug which works fine in my existing charger blocks.
Slim body, Responsive touchscreen, Easy to use interface
The 2012 iPod nano 7th generation doesn't have the chops to make the same impact as a new iPod touch or iPhone 5. Its screen isn't great in some respects, it's a bit expensive and it doesn't do all that much. However, it's so much of a joy to use on a day-to-day basis that we can learn to accept most of its limitations. Strong design and Apple's excellent UI are enough to mitigate this partly underwhelming redesign.
New home button and longer screen offer a familiar smartphone-style interface
The seventh-generation iPod Nano is a fine product, but we're not entirely sure who it's for. It comes across like a breeding experiment between an iPod Shuffle and iPod Touch. The kid is cute, but we think most people will be better served by its parents.
For fitness types, the physical controls, simplicity, clip-on design and AU$55 price of the iPod Shuffle make it seem like the better deal.
Larger screen makes Multi-Touch much more usable than with previous model
Those who loved the previous iPod nano's built-in clip and square shape - especially folks who used the nano as a clip-on workout companion or a makeshift wristwatch - will lament the latest model's taller, clipless design. But as handy (or, if you will, hands-free) as that clip was - and for many people it might be useful enough for Apple to consider a similar product separate from the nano line - dropping it let Apple make the new iPod nano remarkably thin and light.
Good capacity, great design, sounds ace, FM radio is brilliant, Nike+ sync, lovely screen
If we were really feeling picky, we could say that the nano is a bit too expensive. And, we suppose, compared to other products, it might be a bit more pricey. But you get the Nike+ facilities built-in, there's the radio and brilliant video playback and it looks and sounds great.
Bluetooth, Multi-touch, Nike+ Fitness built-in, FM Radio built-in
An improvement on last year's iPod nano, mainly thanks to the inclusion of video playback. We found the general design and shape more pleasing too, and we can live without the clip that the last generation had - the nano is so lightweight that slipping it into a pocket while exercising is easy.
Of course, if you haven't got a free pocket in your exercise hear you may have to invest in a case that attaches it to your body in some way.
Very thin and light, 2.5in screen, improved headphones
The new nano has a bigger screen than its predecessor making it a much better bet for video watching. It makes sorting and playing your music easy when you're on the move, and it sounds even better thanks to the new EarPod earphones. The new power/sync port will be a nuisance if you like to use it with an iPod dock (you'll need an adaptor) but otherwise it's an excellent addition to the range.
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.
A great addition to your Samsung phone
I like to listen to music and podcasts while I'm working out or working in the house and garden. The Samsung Muse is great for these things as it's small, easy to load with programming and has great battery life. I've used several different MP3 players in the past. Each has had drawbacks and nice features. I'm very pleased with my Samsung Muse as it has enough capacity to hold what I need, and yet is small and unobtrusive.
Setting up the Muse was easy.
Affordable price, 2x storage of iPod Shuffle
People who are into iPod shuffle-type MP3 players should dig the $50 Samsung Muse. You get a small, light, clip-able device that delivers decent audio, which is all you need. The fact that it can sync music from a smartphone as well as a PC is a nice bonus, though choosing individual tracks can be a challenge. It's the same price as an iPod shuffle yet offers twice as much storage space (4GB vs 2GB), which is also a nice bonus, though 4GB still doesn't get you far.
Ear buds are surprisingly good
I'm digging the pebble. It's designed to be the sort of lightweight MP3 player you might wear to the gym, and as that it performs wonderfully. As a more full-time player, you're obviously missing a display and proper scrubbing. But you knew that going into this. It's a "shuffle"-type device, made even more evident by the fact that I haven't quite figured out how it decides what order to play the songs.
Excellent basic MP3 player for rec. use
bought this mp3 player for listening to music during exercise. It's absolutely wonderful, and easy to figure out. I have no problem using the Music Go software with it, as I don't care about Media Player or any of that. I import my own CDs and send them to the mp3 player, and create playlists. The earbuds, I dismissed without trying, and used my own headset for a couple of days. But, the earbuds were nice for listening to music in bed, and I realized they are better than my headphones!
GREAT for music - not so much for everything else
Finally, the battery life is AWESOME - longer than any other player I'm aware of. The unit has a proprietary connector which can be hard to insert. Do not force the plug into the unit - line the thing up and it slips in easily initially with a final push needed to firmly connect. It takes some force to disconnect so I'm a little concerned about the longevity of this connector but so far, no problems.
A bit expensive, Feature-poor in some respects, Low-res screen
The Cowon X9 is the latest portable MP3 and video player from the Korean audio brand. However, in some respects it feels like a step back when compared with older models. Its touchscreen is resistive, its display low-res and it doesn't have the storage to justify the bulky design. Cowon needs to get with the times, or it'll soon be game over.
Most formats didn't play too well
The Cowon X9 is available in three variants - 8GB, priced at Rs. 11,999, 16GB at Rs. 13,200 and 32GB priced at Rs. 15,500. Those prices simply do not justify the devices capabilities. With 7-inch tablets available for much less with features such as HDMI out plus full HD video palyback, the Cowon X9 with it's ridiculously high battery capacity and even it's onboard storage doesn't stand a chance.
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.
Great improvement on the first generation
I own the previous iteration of this device which is now available for $50. I was so happy with the previous generation that I bought one for my brother and his wife for Christmas. The 1stGen product is great. For anyone who works out and hates headphone cables, it provides hours of music with reasonably thought-out controls.
When I saw that Sony had come out with a new and improved version, I had to have it. So far I have been impressed.
Built-in rechargeable battery
Sony NWZ-W262 2GB Walkman MP3 Player comes with the USB connectivity and the playback supported files are MP3, WMA (Non-DRM), WMA (DRM), AAC-LC, linear PCM. Sony provides a range of accessories which comes along the purchase of this model and they are quick start guide, built-in rechargeable battery, USB cable accessories attachment.
Not that great...even considering the price
When I first got it, it looked slick enough. I added music and plugged in the headphones and the sound was HORRIBLE! Grabbed my higher quality headphones and plugged them in and there was a significant improvement so the OEM headphones suck. But I can live with that, most do (including those ones from Apple). Now with the new headphones the sound was very bass heavy and to my surprise there are ZERO audio adjustments other than volume.
A simple, few-frills MP3 player that's well-suited to gym bunnies and runners, we wouldn't recommend using the NWZ-B162 as your primary MP3 player, but it makes a solid backup. It's ready to give you a burst of a couple of hours playback after just a few minutes of charging and sound quality is decent at the price.
On-board USB connection
The NWZ-B162 is a no-frills product that delivers decent sound quality at a bargain price. With just 2GB of memory on board, it's unlikely that most people will be buying this as their primary music player, but it's ideal as a back-up for when you don't want to take any risks with a pricier gadget. If you're going for a run or indulging in some poolside tunes then this pint-sized player is a handy gadget to have at your fingertips.
Pretty good, for about 3 months
This mp4 is pretty good for about the first 3 months. had no problems at all with it.
then about one week ago i decided to try putting an episode of a show onto it after converting of course.
after it transferred i tried to view it and the device froze completely. i LITERALLY had to wait for the battery to die and i happened to be fully charged at the time. so that was 4 hours waiting for it to die then waiting for it to recharge.
