There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Apple's sole remaining hard drive-based iPod doesn't have a touch screen, can't run apps or games from the App Store, and weighs more than 10 iPod shuffles. But it can hold your entire music collection, with room left for most of your videos too -- assuming you'd actually want to watch them on that tiny, dated screen.
