Criteria Comments Rating
  • Sound quality Great sound quality, not really an audiophile so not really one to judge. good
  • Video quality No comments
  • Ease of use Simple, just like using an iPhone. I do, however, wish that there was more options for the sleep/wake button control. Screen is a little small and awkward. good
  • Portability No comments great!
  • Battery life No comments good
  • Media support No video support anymore, only plays mp3 and m4v, but iTunes can convert most files... If you have a video podcast, it strips the video so you an still listen. so-so
  • Capacity I got the 16 GB version because, in my previous iPods, I used all of that. Since it no longer supports video, I only use like 4 GB. great!
Detailed review
• Small
• Easy to use
• Clip is a great added bonus

• Screen is a bit small and gestures are hard to do
• Size makes it easy to lose
• No video playback support

• No camera anymore
• No setting to change backlight timeout

Overall, I love this iPod. It is simple, easy to use, and super portable. I highly reccomend it if all you do is listen to music and audio podcasts.
