Apple iPod Nano (third generation 2007, 4GB, silver)


Apple iPod (third generation)

The third-generation iPod Nano offers crisp, bright video playback, an exceptionally thin all-metal body, above-average battery life, built-in games, and an advanced user interface.

We're not crazy about the wider body, the smaller scroll wheel, the lack of video output, and the average-sounding audio quality.

The shape may have changed, but Apple's relentless attention to detail remains. The third generation of the iPod Nano provides loads of entertainment for a down-to-earth price.

"My favorite ipod"


I got this ipod new and my first one was broken when i was trying to put the back on again after it came loose, the screen shattered and apple would not replace it for me. I still have that one but i found a friend with an 8gb one and he sold it to me...

storage, games, good display, good battery, durable

slow loading album artwork, sound quality is OK

"One of the best iPods out there!"


I love the thin structure, the light weight iPod. It does smudge yes, but seriously, don't all iPods? Overall, my cons can be fixed with a case, nothing more! If you look online, cases are cheap, and easy to strap on. Perfect to lgith travels, a trip,...

Small, light weight, and cute! It can fit anywhere.

Easy to get fingerprints in the back, super sensitive click wheel, and the weight of the device is so light, i have fears of losing it! but all of this can be solved with a simple case, nothing else. Perfect iPod.

"Apple = That Sexy Girlfriend/Boyfriend"


In my humble opinion, with the exception of the video addition, the third generation Nano is a downgrade from the second generation. The video quality is superb for such a tiny screen, and the user interface is great- something we have come to expect...

Video now included with great quality, okay sound quality, solid UI as expected from Apple

Width, cover preview on menus, battery life so-so, iTunes, Apple being Apple, still no FM tuner

"It's an OK iPod ."


This iPod is an affordable Mp3 player . If you have a small collection of media and looking for an affordable but yet elegant mp3 player . Then the iPod Nano is for you . But if you have a larger collection of media . I would suggest getting an iPod...

The new user interface is a big change to the iPod Nano . Also the fact that it finally can play video! The new square design with the aluminum back is a very nice re-make of the old tall triangular iPod Nano.

As much as I like Apple there are some flaws to this iPod . The first con about this iPod Nano is that the highest storage capacity is 8GB. Come on Apple why not 16GB? Also playing videos on the iPod puts so much strain on you're eyes.

"It's alright, just keep updated."


During the summer, I had my ipod on my belt. Forgot it was there and went into the washroom. [Mind you I didn't go to the washroom before this happened], And my ipod had fell in the toilet, it had a cover on it. I grabbed it, took the cover off and let...

Things I liked; The ipod itself. The screen, the size. etc.

Can't survive 3 seconds in water.

"Pretty good ipod"


Very good ipod. It could come in more colors. Average memory size. It's a pretty good ipod, but needs some more features.

Well made ipod, cool cover flow, very responsive scroll wheel

I don't like it taking the classic design, should be slim and tall

"A great music player!"


The Apple iPod 3G is a good buy. It's probably cheaper then the 4G on ebay or amazon now. I have had mine over a year now and it has done me well. I had bought a belkin case for it, which is almost so scratched I can't see through it, but inside my...

Great iTunes integration, plays movies, tv shows, and music videos. Game support, holds a decent amount of music, made by apple, cover view, decent price, has lasted for me over a year now and still works great!

Scratches easy (Can't take a fall with it), locked to iTunes only, UI can be a little sluggish,
