    I always thought these things were a waste of money.Why spend 200 bucks on an MP3 player when there are others out there way cheaper?My brother got this for his birthday and thats when I found out why these are more money.They Hold about a million times more music than my old cheapie MP3 player did.The song quality is amazing.The iTunes software is one of the best players that I have had in a long time.I'd write more but everyone else has done so a million times over so why re-invent the wheel.:)enjoy!

    Just when you think it doesn't get any better, it doesn't!The new 2nd generation Apple 4 GB iPod Mini Silver M9800LL/A is the new benchmark in over-priced electronics that provide music you already own, in a duplicative, unstable, portable format.

    Apple spared every expense delivering the new sleek design of the Mini Silver.Sure to make you the envy of every kid on the block.And the good news doesn't stop there.Or does it?

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love my mini!
    So.... I bought a 4gb mini about a week ago and I'm loving it. I did quite a bit of research about it before I bought it just to make sure I was making a good investment. Best $200 I've ever spent.
    It holds a lot of music!
    Although I wish it could be worn around my neck like a shuffle... I think the Apple iPod mini Lanyard can solve that problem though.
    Ummm... I love it. It works great with my PC. (I'm not a mac lover)

    I <3 it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mini Ipod 2nd generation
    I own a pink mini ipod 2nd generation and i love it! i got it in the begining of may, so its almost a month and have never had problems (except once it froze when i was at school but i connected it to my usb port and then it was fine)The little thing takes on a ton of abuse(i drop it ALL the time) but it never skips and it doesn't even have 1 scratch yet! I was debating between the mini and the 20 gb but i decided to get this one b/c i didn't need 5000 songs worth of space and it was too heavy. If you're worried that you wont have enough space on the mini...it probably wont be a problem unless you are a super heavy user(even in that case you can stillswitch off the songs)and the mini is MUCH smaller and lighter(my best friend has a 4o gb and its WAY bigger than my little compact 4 gb one)also the 4 gb is about 100 dollars cheaper than 20 gb (well, thats about 100 songs there from itunes!)most of the accsories are really uneeded and they're just 4 convinience especially the dock(although i find using the usb port to charge it and download songs extreamly simple and im that computer/electronics oriented)Itunes is really great.. i love it and i prefer it over napster(and yes, i've used both to buy,listen and download songs)the only disadvantage on the ipod as opposed to creative,dell or any other mp3 players, is that you can only use itunes and your own collections to put on your ipod.
    The ipod is really "cute" and i really like the click wheel, which is really cool. The setup and use of the ipod is very easy, within an hour of opening the package, i had already instaleld all of the software,registered,charged my ipod, download a ton of songs and was already listening to them with my friends. I spent a long time deciding which mp3 player to get, and i ended up with an apple ipod which i use all the tiem and absolutly adore it! Hope this review helped!

    3-0 out of 5 stars LAST AND LEAST....
    whatever, ihave been looking for an mp3 player all over the world! when i finally found i liked first of all because of its look, then because of storage and of course the MAC quality.
    i was thinking on a sandisk, but my mom suggested an ipod and shed pay the difference wich sound great to me, anyways, i bought it, and enjouyed for about a week, i love to excercise, i jog a lot, andpractice basketball and martial arts, so sometimes when i try to concentrate i just play my mp3 and forget about the world and the routines just comes out easily, anyways, im not a great music fan, my storage is about 150 songs, but is never useless to have extra storage, what so ever.......
    this thing is soooooo heavy!!!!!!! and soooo big!!! if i hold it on the clip, which holds from my pants as soon as i start to jog, the thing starts like comming out, or tears down my pants..!! if i hold it with the armclip, it is so heavy that i became scared of droppin it so i barely moved my arm.....anyways, the sound is goodbut not great so far the best for me on mp3's talking, storage enough, size terrible, handling terrible, and as for me excersising is very important thats why i rate it with three because it doesnt let you become healthy. now im thinking on buying a nike/phillips, or the sandisk and ill sell mine to mmy sister...whatevera good thing for sedentary kinda ppl....lol... ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great iPod!!!
    After buying my iPod at the Myrtle Beach, SC Target store, I am very, very impressed with this iPod. Downloading songs from both CD's and from itunes is a piece of cake. I have almost quit listening the radio in my car during my daily commutes. I've found it easier to use the itunes music cards than a regular credit card to download musicon Apple's website. I really like the FM adapter that I purchased at the store and the ipod player case is a perfect fit. I just wish that Target carried more accessories like the remote control and the cigarrette lighter adapter. I got to that my brother, Iman, that works at Target in Louisville, KY for talking me into buying the 20GB iPod instead of the mini!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good mp3 player
    If you are looking for a real good mp3 player, this is the one to get! It has everything i am looking for. First off it has a 20gb hard drive which can store 5,000 songs. my iTunes playlist has at least 600 hundred songs! second it has the new click-wheel which makes things much more easier to manuver around. the 3rd gen. iPod is real nice too but i don't like that the play, pause, stop buttons are at the top. finally the design is really high-tech looking. It has a nice white coating on the front and a metal finish at the back. it's thin as ever now also! i bought this for my wife for christmas but i also bought one for me too! these 20gb were sold out evrywhere!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very useful item, but with a few setbacks...
    I bought my 20GB iPod just under a year ago and I've used it a lot. It is so useful to just upload all your CDs to one central place. However, after the 1st week I bought it, I had a lot of problems. It tends to freeze-nothing too noticable but sometimes it will pause for 10 seconds, and it gets annoying. The casing tends to also pop out of place, which will cause the internal mechanisms to be out of line. For example my iPod wouldn't turn on because somehow the internal "hold" button had been triggered. Apple also only allows one support phone call, unless you pay $60 to buy another call and another year of warranty. Despite these few minor things, that don't always happen to everyone, I am very glad that I purchased this item.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best mp3 players to date . . .
    I just recently turned fifteen and for my birthday my parents bought me a Sumsung Yepp 256mb mp3 player. it was good with its small design and ease of use, but when it started making noises, i immiediately returned it. I had been saving up money for a new digital camera ,but instead decided to use it on buying my first ever iPod. It's only been a month now and ive already got about 400 songs on it, and i can still fit 4600 more! i like the blazing fast data transfers and ease of use. the click wheel is by far the coolest thing on this 20gb mp3 player. i wasnt happy that the dock isnt included, but rest assured, its on my christmas list. i would highly recomend purchasing this if you are looking for an easy to use, all around good mp3 player.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Addictive Product
    Buy this product if you love your music and you want to be able to take it with you anywhere. Once you've transferred all your favorite songs into this compact little player you might feel compelled to spend hours categorizing and organizing them into your own personal playlists on your PC. Or you may just want to set it to shuffle and enjoy the music. The headphones sound incredible and you probably won't remember your songs sounding so good. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not far from perfect
    Apple was aiming to produce an elegant, tiny personal digital music player with only one standout feature (shuffle play) and they succeeded almost perfectly. It's amazingly compact and lightweight, simple to use, and hassle-free except as noted below. Battery life is excellent. The i-Tunes software that comes with it is the state of the art in flexibility, functionality, and ease.

    There's no compelling reason not to buy this, but here are a few cavils to consider:

    * The on-off switch needs a groove, notch, bump, or something to make it easier to grip. I have to squeeze the unit to get traction on the on-off switch. Annoying.

    * After powering it on, I almost always have to press the play button twice before it decides to play. Why?

    * In my experience, this requires USB 2.0 on the PC platform, and I get uneven results on the five different USB 2.0 ports I've tried. On some, the performance is great. On others, it is very slow. I have never gotten a USB 1.x port to see this device.

    * The headphones are uncomfortable and prone to falling out. Inside-the-ear headphones are not a one-size-fits-all item, because one size does not fit all. Chances are good you'll be purchasing replacement headphones, as I did.

    * For how much is Apple going to gouge me when I need a replacement battery? (Begs question: is this actually made to last? Begs further question: is anything made to last any more?)

    * I wish they would produce this in other colors. I could see it in black especially. Someday, man may yet learn to dye plastic.

    Cavils aside, if you're looking for a simple, no-nonsense personal digital music player, this is a great choice.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love my Shuffle
    A friend gave me an iPod Shuffle, but what I really wanted was an iPod Mini.However, after a few uses I've determined that the Shuffle meets my needs more than any other iPod could.

    My CD collection is relatively small, so after ripping the entire thing to my computer, it took up less than 4 gigs.So no problems storing them all there.In addition, for most of the music I listen to, song length averages about 2.5 minutes, so I can cram 150 or more songs onto the Shuffle at once.

    It's surprisingly fun to rip and manipulate your music collection using iTunes, and even more fun to shop for songs you haven't heard in years and thought you'd never hear again.

    The Shuffle's main advantage over the other iPods is its size and weight.I wouldn't want to slip the other iPods into a jeans pocket or bag for fear of breaking it, but the little Shuffle has no moving parts and weighs about the same as a molecule, so I don't have a problem stuffing it into my pocket.

    I like the fact that you can create a playlist and play the songs in order.There's no screen, so you can't find what you want quickly - but if you made the playlist, why would you want to skip songs anyway?Just fill it with songs you love!

    My Shuffle replaces a 13-year-old Sony Discman, and I am so glad to get rid of that antique piece of junk.No more carting around a big book of CDs for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cool machine, but...
    ...one minor complaint and one practical adjustment.Charging this bad boy is a pain.It charges via USB port which sounds cool, but it will often quit charging after a few seconds.Only by unplugging and replugging other devices out of and back into their respective USB ports in a fittingly RANDOM fashion will the orange "charging" light eventually stay on.However, aside from the rain dance needed for it to work, the good news is that once it is fully charged, the battery lasts for a few days' worth of listening.

    The practical change could be to add a holding clip.If you run or go the the gym with pocketless shorts, you're out of luck.Also, the iPod Shuffle has a knack for falling out of your pocket when you grab your keys, wallet, etc.

    Personally, I haven't had a problem with earpieces falling out.I like the random song feature as well; it adds a surprising replayability to your MP3 library.I don't regret spending the $100 for this player.

    4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good
    Very easy to load music into. sounds great.

    2 things that could make it better

    1> on/off switch, a little texture, or grooves to make it easier to slide it. I end up trying to get a fingernail between the unit and the switch to slid it open.

    2> the earbuds keep falling out, maybe I have small ears. it takes a few times having them fall out, and putting them back in to get them in so they stay. On the commercials, they show people jumping and dancing- I dont know how they keep them in their ears!

    Others comments about a lack of display and not knowing what song is next-what difference does it make? Presumably,you loaded it with music you like, I like the randomness of it,not knowing what is next. I only put songs on it that I like, so I dont care what is next.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great iPod Alternative For Athletes Or Kids
    Great for jogging, and makes the display surprisingly unnecessary.A solid, cheap, and durable alternative for kids who might not take the necessary care with a hard-drive based iPod.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beyond Cool
    The fact that this transmitter allowed me to choose from more than four channels was what caught my attention. Living and working in the NYC metropolitan area, I knew that there are very few, if any, channels that would be clear enough to use a transmitter successfully, so a transmitter that gave me a wide spectrum of channels to choose from was in order.

    This thing works! I use it on a channel on which I get a faint to medium signal and it completely overrides that signal. It's easy to use. It's incredibly sexy - not clunky or awkward looking at all (it completely fits the profile of the mini). It gets attention from everyone because it's just so cool. ... Read more

    I always thought these things were a waste of money.Why spend 200 bucks on an MP3 player when there are others out there way cheaper?My brother got this for his birthday and thats when I found out why these are more money.They Hold about a million times more music than my old cheapie MP3 player did.The song quality is amazing.The iTunes software is one of the best players that I have had in a long time.I'd write more but everyone else has done so a million times over so why re-invent the wheel.:)enjoy!

    Just when you think it doesn't get any better, it doesn't!The new 2nd generation Apple 4 GB iPod Mini Silver M9800LL/A is the new benchmark in over-priced electronics that provide music you already own, in a duplicative, unstable, portable format.

    Apple spared every expense delivering the new sleek design of the Mini Silver.Sure to make you the envy of every kid on the block.And the good news doesn't stop there.Or does it?

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love my mini!
    So.... I bought a 4gb mini about a week ago and I'm loving it. I did quite a bit of research about it before I bought it just to make sure I was making a good investment. Best $200 I've ever spent.
    It holds a lot of music!
    Although I wish it could be worn around my neck like a shuffle... I think the Apple iPod mini Lanyard can solve that problem though.
    Ummm... I love it. It works great with my PC. (I'm not a mac lover)

    I <3 it.

    I own a pink mini ipod 2nd generation and i love it! i got it in the begining of may, so its almost a month and have never had problems (except once it froze when i was at school but i connected it to my usb port and then it was fine)The little thing takes on a ton of abuse(i drop it ALL the time) but it never skips and it doesn't even have 1 scratch yet! I was debating between the mini and the 20 gb but i decided to get this one b/c i didn't need 5000 songs worth of space and it was too heavy. If you're worried that you wont have enough space on the mini...it probably wont be a problem unless you are a super heavy user(even in that case you can stillswitch off the songs)and the mini is MUCH smaller and lighter(my best friend has a 4o gb and its WAY bigger than my little compact 4 gb one)also the 4 gb is about 100 dollars cheaper than 20 gb (well, thats about 100 songs there from itunes!)most of the accsories are really uneeded and they're just 4 convinience especially the dock(although i find using the usb port to charge it and download songs extreamly simple and im that computer/electronics oriented)Itunes is really great.. i love it and i prefer it over napster(and yes, i've used both to buy,listen and download songs)the only disadvantage on the ipod as opposed to creative,dell or any other mp3 players, is that you can only use itunes and your own collections to put on your ipod.
    The ipod is really "cute" and i really like the click wheel, which is really cool. The setup and use of the ipod is very easy, within an hour of opening the package, i had already instaleld all of the software,registered,charged my ipod, download a ton of songs and was already listening to them with my friends. I spent a long time deciding which mp3 player to get, and i ended up with an apple ipod which i use all the tiem and absolutly adore it! Hope this review helped!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I waited.
    I have wanted an iPod for a long time, and was planning on getting the 20gig B&W.Not that there's anything wrong withthe 20gig version, but for just a few dollars more, you can get the 30gig version.I have not put any pictures on the iPod, but its nice to know you have the capability of doing so.I apprecite the color screen, even if it is just for making the music slelection.The include iTunes software is pretty awesome.It took a little time to copy almost 300 CD's to my computer, but the iTunes interface between the computer and the iPod always updates the iPod with no hassles.I have used about 17gog, so, with the 30gig iPod, I will never have to worry about running out of space.The iPod is also very versatile.I hav an adaptor to play it through my boom box, and an adaptor to play it through my car's cassette player.It makes long drives very bearable.Finally, I like the way the iPod autmatically organizes all of your music, by artist, composer, genre, album, etc......The shuffle function, and the playlists are also great.This is one of my best purchases.

    5-0 out of 5 stars iPod Photo: near perfect
    I have used three different iPod models since they were released a few years ago. They keep improving with age and iPod Photo is almost flawless. What's great about this model:
    1. previously, I had problems with battery life dissipating after a month or so of use (and I use mine hard; it's on at least six hours a day), but that hasn't happened with this one. I find that I get right around 18--eighteen!--hours of battery life on a charge. However, if I go two or more days between use, the battery runs itself down to almost nothing;
    2. the vibrant colors are a wonderful change. Compared to the iPod Photo, the old black-and-white models look positively antiquated. The font on the Photo is updated as well;
    3. to my untuned ear, I cannot tell the difference between what I hear on my earbuds and the CD the music came from. Sound quality is, as always, excellent;
    4. the price drop. I paid $399 for my last 40g model and $349 for this 30g iPod Photo, a superior product; and
    5. picture quality on the iPod is quite (surprisingly) good. It's like carrying an entire photo album with me. I have over 2,200 songs and 1,300 photos stored on my machine and it's still more than half empty.

    What I'm not crazy about:
    1. I'm not sure how the album art is stored; namely, why some have it and others don't. Anything downloaded from iTunes will have it, and some stuff from my own music collection does, too, but I can't figure out a pattern and have been too lazy to research it. Less than half of my music has album art to display;
    2. I know that the "random" feature is the result of a complex algorithm and has, in fact, been proven to be truly random, but my iPod has a propensity for picking certain tracks while never playing others;
    3. to lower the price, Apple's skimped on the accessories that come included with the iPods. In this model, no dock or case as were provided as when I bought my 40g b-&-w model;
    4. the display on iPods scratch ridiculously easily. I recommend picking up an iSkin which is a colorful jacket that fits over the iPod and comes with a screen protector that works really well. Apple sells these for about $30 but they can be had on eBay for a third of the cost; and
    5. no way to delete songs directly from the iPod and no way to load photos onto the machine. Both of these things must be done from a computer.

    A quick word on Apple's customer service: if you register your iPod with them, you can request repairs or replacement parts for accessories at (usually) no charge within a year of purchase. So when your earbuds begin to fray (and they will), you can get a new pair simply for asking. I've done this four times with no problems, free of charge. They even ship new parts for free via FedEx. Whoa.

    I love my iPod Photo and am seldom without it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Beware ofiTunes - Poor Quality and locks you to Apple
    Previous reviews describes the HW. Not much to add here: Slick design, easy to understand, undersized screen for photo but the colors are nice.
    The problem with Apple is the iTunes SW. Unlike other MP3 software I have seen, this one works only with iPod which gives you two problems: You will be locked to iPod and it may not work.
    - If you have loaded 10.000 songs (no small task)onto iTunes and want to use it with another player then it's back to reloading. It will not work with other players. Also, Playlists are to be maintained multiple places etc.
    - iTunes has sigificant quality problems so your perfectly working computer may not work with it. Go to http://discussions.info.apple.com and check it out - and note how many problems are unsolved so folks are sitting there unable to load, burn and play and the proprietary nature of iTunes means that there are no alternatives. Customer support is at best random
    I got one iPod. My last.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great and spiffy gizmo!!
    Although I'm a PC geek, I have secretly lusted after an iPod for years, since they first came out! A: I had a PC and B: I considered it to be too expensive, then they came out w/ PC models and this weekend, I got a good price and bought it. Cool, fun! Sleek, stylish and cool. Great interface and design. I don't like the earbud thingees... alreay, inside of 24hours lost one of the pads and they are a bit uncomfortable -- am going to look for aftermarket ones. Also, bought a case and dock (both very needed and SHOULD be included with)

    Already had iTunes on the comp. Have had some trouble moving my wife's purchased music, but I'm sure it will be something dumb I missed. It's a pretty good program and I like it's interface.

    As for whole iPod experience, I am quite happy w/ it!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars (Quite) A Few Quibbles
    Well, let me start by saying that this is a very good product. But it is FAR from perfect. I have many complaints, often quite petty (after all, this is my first iPod), but for the $300 or so price tag I expect CLOSE to perfect...

    Quibbles:
    1. You can't load pictures directly from the camera/memory card onto the iPod. Or, rather, you can't view photos loaded directly. In order to view photos, they must be moved to your computer and loaded through the iPhoto software. This is a MAJOR dissapointment for anyone travelling with their iPod and camera.

    2. The (necessary) iTunes software is not compatible with Windows 98 or ME. Devastating to those of us with older computers full of MP3s.

    3. The iTunes software is constantly redirecting me to their store. Very obnoxious.

    4. I firmly believe that any product that costs me around a week's salary should come with all the necessary accessories. Noticably absent: a carrying case (if you dont want it severely scratched), flash card reader, fire wire, decent headphones, etc. etc. All told, be ready to sink another hundred (or three...) on "fun add-ons".

    5. Could they not add some better games?? My cell phone has way better games than this. My TI-83 calculator (yeah, I was a bit of a nerd in high school) had better games than this. What a waste of a color screen...

    Complaints aside, the iPod still rocks. The sound quality and design are unsurpassed; the software and database style song sorting are strong - there are clear reasons why the iPod is becoming a cultural icon of the digital age. But, given the price and potential for improvement, I wish I'd waited for a better version.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the PSP
    If you have the PSP and a little extra cash, it's pretty much mandatory that you get a Memory Stick Duo card.The 32MB that comes in the PSP Value Pack is just a joke -- unless you plan to use the PSP strictly for gaming only, in which case you don't need to buy a larger-capacity memory card.

    (I suspect Sony includes a small Memory Stick Duo card in the Value Pack to discourage people from copying movies to the PSP.Just my wild guess.)

    If, however, you want to take full advantage of the PSP multimedia experience, a larger-capacity Memory Stick Duo is just a must.Consider yourself lucky, for just six months ago a 1GB Memory Stick Duo (MSD for short) would have made you $300-$400 poorer.Kudos to Sony for bringing the price down to something we mere mortals can afford.But curses to Sony for not using an industry standard format like Secure Digital.

    Anyway, you have pretty much two choices when it comes to 1GB MSD cards.Either a Sony, or a Sandisk.Lexar (another company) is supposed to be selling it, too, but I haven't seen theirs in the retail channel, so the choice comes down to either Sony or Sandisk.

    As I mentioned many times in my previous reviews, I still have lingering doubts about Sandisk's quality control, as in the past I had no less than two Sandisk flash memory cards fail on me when I needed reliability the most (i.e., a "Kodak moment" for my digital camera).The price difference between a Sony 1GB MSD adn a Sandisk seems pretty small.BTW, if you see a 1GB MSD for over $150 in a store, you'd be overpaying, so come back to Amazon and get it here.

    The popularity of the PSP does make both the Sony and the Sandisk 1GB MSD cards hard to find, so maybe you just want to grab whichever one that's in stock.I myself am willing to pay a bit extra for Sony's reliability, but other people have had luck with Sandisk MSD's, so don't let my experience discourage you from getting a Sandisk.It's just that with the Sony memory card, you're unlikely to have any problems, assuming you don't bite or let your dog nibble on the card.

    1GB is a lot of memory.Most PSP games use 600KB-800KB for game save data.MP3 tunes encoded at the most common 128kbps bit rate runs about 1MB/minute, so a 4-minute song will occupy 4MB.Video files are harder to summarize since there are so many different encoding bitrates and options (e.g., 15fps or 30fps, mono or stereo or surround sound).I encode at 384kbps/15fps/mono, and one hour of video takes about 150MB.If you want to encode at the more fluid 512kbps/30fps/stereo, expect about 300MB per hour.In short, you should have no trouble fitting more than one full-length movies on this.Feel free to e-mail me at gadgester @t hotmail if you have any questions.

    Because this MSD card is also "MagicGate-compatible", meaning it supports Sony's digital rights management technology, you can use it in Sony's digital audio players that take Memory Stick Duo or the full-sized Memory Stick.An adapter is included in the package so if you have Sony gear that only takes the original, full-sized Memory Stick (e.g., most Sony miniDV camcorders and digital cameras), you can stick the smaller Memory Stick Duo into the adapter and then insert the adapter into the gizmo. ...

    let's put it this way, if you want to store all your music in your ipod ( and when i say all your music, i mean ALL), thenthis ipod mini is not for you, 'cause as you guys know, this ipod mini only holds up to 1,500 songs (6gb). Now,that's a lot of songs if you ask me, that's an entire week of music, i love classic rock and i filled my ipod mini with all of my favorite songs, you know how cool it is for me to take this everytime i go to the beach or if i'm having some company, i can just press shuffle and enjoy without the hassle of getting up everytime, you know to change cd's??, so if you're looking for something that's not that expensive and just want to have a good time and easy to use then i recomend this little item!! Respeta a un varon!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding MP3 player.
    I began looking into an iPod purchase over a year ago, and was almost sold on the 4th generation iPod.I liked the colors of the mini and was okay with 4 GB of storage (though that was a tad on the small side), but the main thing that deterred me from the mini was the less-than-desirable 8-10 hour battery life.

    Then the 2nd generation mini was released.Apple seemed to fix and improve every little thing I had held against the original.They made the colors brighter, increased the hard drive space to 6 gigs, and most importantly, at least to me, increased the battery life two-fold.

    The 18 hours that Apple advertises is EXTREMELY conservative.If you're content listening to music and don't need the backlight for more than a minute or two every hour, the battery can run for about 24-25 hours.I can go a week and not have to worry about recharging my battery.I could listen every waking moment of my day and never have to stop and recharge before I went to bed.It's a wonderful thing.

    The blue is very bright and pleasing to the eye--I've seen the pink and silver versions and they too are visually appeasing.6 gigs is nothing to shake a stick at--on the contrary, I've found that 6 gigs is just about the perfect size for someone who has a vast number of interests musically but doesn't have thousands upon thousands of CD's to rip and upload.Unless you have literally hundreds of CD's in your collection that you plan on putting on your iPod, I'd recommend the mini, since you'd more than likely end up with half the space on your regular iPod sitting unused.

    Despite the fact that the iPod scratches easily, there are several cases which work extremely well...I'm partial to the ones made by Power Support, though you have to import them from Japan.Uploading your songs is quick and easy.Navigating the menus takes about 15 minutes to master.There's really nothing more I can say that can do the iPod mini justice.

    I will make a quick note and add that I'm not an Apple fanatic.I think that Apples are good computers, but I'm still attached to my PCs.However, when it comes to MP3 players, there's really no comparison; it's going to take many many years before Microsoft or any other competing company can put out any MP3 player nearly as nice as the 2nd generation iPod mini.

    Also, if you have a friend that's a teacher in a school, look into the education discount on the Apple website.It ends up being 20 or 30 dollars off.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!(after I survived setting it up)
    I just got my 6 gb mini for my birthday.I also got most of the accessories as presents, too, so I don't have to worry about forking over the cost of the mini itself for them (seriously, mac).I AM IN ELECTRO LOVE!Wow, and I think this time it's for REALS.:-)I am coming fresh off the iRiver boat (funny how they use the "i" in front of their name, too), and have been extremely pleased with my little 256 mb player... and I do mean LITTLE.BUT, I am extatically (word invention there) adding album after album on my iPod as I type this.Yeah, it's kinda annoying to convert WMA files to AAC, but they do the work for you.I love the organization, I love the style, I love the size, I love the balance between form AND function.I do feel like I've just joined a cult of iPod users, however.Oh well, not as bad as Mormonism

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gotta Buy This!!
    Let me start off by saying that I was amazed at how small this thing is. I bought the IPOD MINI.When I got it and opened it up I was amazed at how small it was. It was crazy small!Plus it holds around 1,000 songs.Right now I have about 500 and it's a little over half-full on the memory. I got a 4GB IPOD MINI.So, there is plenty of memory space for lots of songs.The software was easy to install.I thought it was tricky figuring out how to select songs and actually put them on the ipod.But after a while I figured it out.Also the volume on the ear phones is amazing. I almost blew out an eardrum by accidentally turning up the volume!The only problem i've had so far with the ear pieces is that the foam ear pads keep coming off the earbuds.NO biggie though.I would recommend getting some sort of case to protect this thing since you've already paid $200 bucks what is another $20 to make sure it's safe!There's plenty to choose from.Charging is it easy, you just plug it into the usb port and it automatically starts charging it.I have a computer so it's no biggie.If you don't have a computer with a usb port its gonna be tough finding a place to recharge it.I haven't tested the battery life yet, but it seems to be ok.Probably more than what i need.Lastly, I was a little worried that the songs would not transfer over to the itunes software. I have lots of songs that I got elsewhere :) I hoped they would transfer over to the other software and they did. They also sound great, the play fine. It's not a problem at all. Now i have over half of my music collection on this thing.It's a really great product.5 stars!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars ITunes suck, but you don't need it.
    The player is great. I never used iTunes, but as far as I'm concerned I'll nerver have to. I hated my previous sony mp3 player because the softwere had, just like iTunes, a lot of copyright bouls***t.
    When I won my shuffle as a gift, I was really supicios that I would have the same problems with iTunes. I use win98 and, as a music fan, I love winamp: it's light, fast, practical... THE FACT IS: SHUFFLE WORKS IN WINAMP AND WIN98. All you gotta do is download the win98 driver and the winamp plugin. And the best part is, it works great! All you gotta do is select the songs you want form the library, right-click and "send to ipod" (winamp is the greatest!!!) It's realible, doesn't have any copyright bouls***t and its fast. I use standard usb, and it takes about 15 min to upload 1GB.

    The ipod itself is great.
    + : Practical, cool, very very light, no unnecessery cables, fine sound quality.
    - : None.

    Waht I think about the lack of display:
    Some people think the lack of display is due economical factors. In my opinion it was a desing decision. Ipod shuffle is the best looking mp3 player on the market and a display would compromise significantly its looks. As a music fan, I know the name of all my songs, so i don't need a dyspaly to inform me that. The problem of finding a specific song can be solved by loading your songs in alphabetical order.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love it!
    I needed something that would allow me to listen to music at the gym (since I workout 6 days/week). I looked at the other options, the Shuffle fit the bill. I was originally going to get the 512mb version but opted for the 1gb model since it's not much more.

    Pros:
    -This thing is tiny, not much bigger than the USB thumb drives I use.
    -No moving parts means no skipping while I'm on the treadmill.
    -Very easy to use and install (took several minutes). The shuffle I purchased needed an update to Itunes, which was a quick download.
    -Ready to use out of the box. Includes the Shuffle, headphones, 2 sets of pads, some Apple stickers, manual, CD all in a very bright green box.

    Cons:
    -Small enough so you don't know it's there, gotta be careful not to sit on it.

    A lot of folks seem to be concerted about the lack of a screen. If I'm working out I don't need a screen. No reason to complain about lack of a screen if you look at it and see THERE IS NO SCREEN. Buy one of the other models if you need a screen.

    When you register it you'll be required to enter the serial number. It's located on the Ipod itself and is tiny but it is also on the bottom of the box next to the barcodes and is much easier to read. I've seen (on other sites) people complaining about the side of the serial number on the unit. You now know that it is on the box. :)

    After you install it it will need to charge, so don't plan on using it immediately.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great iPod Alternative For Athletes Or Kids
    Great for jogging, and makes the display surprisingly unnecessary. A solid, cheap, and durable alternative for kids who might not take the necessary care with a hard-drive based iPod.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not a good value, but it's still something you can buy
    The shuffle ipod. A great little Mp3 as tall as a large popsicle stick. it's easy to use as the regular ipod, but even though it's cool, it's not my kind of mp3 player.

    let's look at the good things, it's small, and can be worn on your neck. It's fun, like a radio all of your choice.It's white, and it's like ipod's should be. it also plays songs without the annoying stalling and loading like theother small ones.Fun and cool looking.

    But it still has lot's of cons. For starters, there is no screen. It's kind of fustrating, but it's fun at the same time. Like a radio without annoying commercials or announcers. another is the price. If you want music, the regular, Special, or photo. if you wanted to buy 2o gig worth of music with shuffle, It would cost more than 2000 dollars,and you just get music and no extras. And the others already shuffle, but still dosen't have the radio feature,.

    It's good for anybody who dosen't like too much music and like the suprises of a radio. But if you are wanting to carry tons of music, buy the regular one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars All I wanted was simple
    And the iPod Shuffle delivered. I kind of wonder about the reviewers who say that there are other flash based mp3 players that cost the same but have more features and anyone who buys the shuffle is ... (substitute your favorite ad hominem attack). If you want those other features, don't buy the shuffle. But, I don't want a screen (prone to getting scratched or cracked), an FM tuner (I don't listen to the radio), voice recording (um, just have no use for that in my life). For what I wanted, this is THE perfect device. Sound is great even with my cheap Koss ear phones. Size is amazing. It's the perfect player for grabbing and dropping in your pocket. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Taking its cue from the iPod itself, the Altec Lansing inMotion iM3 portable audio system packs a powerful collection of features into a compact, portable body. The system, which was designed exclusively for the iPod, is roughly the size of a paperback book, yet each of its sleek speakers delivers crystal-clear, vibrant sound, letting users share their iPod libraries at the park, in a hotel suite, or anyplace else where a set of headphones just won't do. An efficient Class D amplifier powers the four full-range 28 mm neodymium micro drivers, which provide impressively rich and clear high- and mid-range tones. Meanwhile, the system's MaxxBass technology boosts the bass with subwoofer-like results--a rare feature in such a small system. The iM3 also includes a built-in docking station that makes it easy to synchronize, recharge, and transfer data from your iPod while giving users convenient access to the click wheel. And when you're ready to hit the road, the docking station and stand fold up flat against the speakers to fit inside the included carrying bag. At a mere 8 by 5.5 by 1.1 inches (W x H x D), the system is perfect for the light traveler.

    Listeners can operate the iM3 from a distance thanks to the included remote control, and should users get distracted for any length of time, the system shuts down automatically to conserve power. Additional features include a secondary input jack for connecting to other audio devices, such as laptops, older iPods, or other MP3 players (cable included), and an extra-long battery life (24 hours of continuous playback with four AA batteries). If you want to enjoy great sound everywhere you go while still preserving the portable convenience of the iPod, the iM3 is an ideal choice. Just listen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fast, reliable
    Yeap, this works really well with the Sony PSP.Out of the box, Windows reports this has 490MB available.This is due to the different ways storage manufacturers and Windows calculate capacity.In Windows, 1MB=1024KB, 1KB=1024B, whereas for storage manufacturers, 1MB=1,000,000B, so "512MB" is really less than that as calculated by Windows.

    Most PSP games seem to use about 600KB - 800KB for user data storage.Most MP3 songs encoded at 128kbps bitrate come out to 1MB per minute.So if you have two games and use the rest of this Memory Stick only for MP3, you can hold about 122 songs.Not something to write home about, but you can always download your favorite tunes to the Memory Stick and play them when you take a respite from gaming.

    It's difficult to say how much video you can hold, because that depends entirely on how you encode (bitrate, audio quality, etc.).As a rough rule of thumb, this card can hold about one hour of acceptable-quality video.

    You can access this Memory Stick Duo card by either hooking up your PSP to your PC directly (using a $5 mini-B USB 2.0 cable), or using a USB reader.I use the Sony high-speed reader (model # MSAC-US30), which is super-reliable and super-fast.If you have a third-party reader or laptop that can only take the full-size Memory Stick -- "Memory Stick Duo" cards are less than 50% of the full-sized Memory Sticks -- this package comes with an adapter that turns the Memory Stick Duo into a full-sized Memory Stick.

    Sandisk has a 1GB Memory Stick Duo card for about $125, which is also a good value.But in the past I had inconsistent reliablity experience with Sandisk products, so I much prefer using a Sony Memory Stick Duo.512MB is okay for now, but I think I'll need at least 1GB for the full PSP experience: one movie, a couple short videos, 30 or so of my favorite songs, and game data for a few games.I imagine it'll be another year before 2GB Memory Stick Duos come down to the $100 level.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great product!
    This Memory Stick is a great buy for use in the Sony PSP and has a capacity that can hold up to 180 5 MP digital Images, 500 Minutes of music (ATRAC3), and 230 Minutes of video (.MP4, QVGA)! This MS has a ton of space and will provide lots of storage space. ... Read more

    Finally there is a way for your family to buy you music without having to explain to them why the guys from Slipknot dress like clowns.<br /><br />Nice also that you can get an iTunes gift certificate without having to setup an account (try guiding Grandma through that once...)

    This is the ultimate tool for downloading music quickly and cheaply. After downloading iTunes on Apple.com, you canset up an account with the Apple music store. Downloading is just a click away, a song can be yours in just under 15 seconds. This is great for someone with a diverse taste in music (like myself) as you do not have to buy the whole album if you only like the one song. I am a DJ in my spare time and get almost all my music from these cards.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Working with iMovie HD
    `Established' Shot and Location

    In the Timeline, I set the order of my Clip Panes with the first being the important `Established' shot. Clips are pieces of movie footage that you rearrange into your movie for storytelling. Later, I add a movie title that answers the questions of  when and where the movie was filmed. You will find that location and date anchor the movie for your viewing audience.

    Major Editing in Post Production

    I change the Preference to Clip Panes shelf when I do the major editing of my movie. Next, I split my movie clips into several new clips and drag them to the Clip Panes shelf for later editing.

    Most of my movie clips need slitting (Command `T') to remove poor movie footage such as shaky hand-held camcorder shooting. The Post Production editing is the most time- consuming. I find that a ratio of one minute of movie footage is equal to one hour of editing time. This includes selecting the proper music, editing the sound and enhancing the video.

    Analog Signals into Digital Signals

    An analog-to-digital converter, or ADC as it is more commonly called, is a device that converts analog signals into digital signals. Computers, which handle data in digital form, require analog-to-digital converters to turn signals from analog to digital before it can be read.

    Could I convert my VCR cassette`s Analog Signals into Digital Signals?

    According to the Canon ZR60 camcorder's manual, the answer was negative for traditional replacing of existing scenes for the AV insert. Taking my roundabout approach, I worked at importing film footage from my RIC master VCR tape from my Rhode Island College Video project from 1992 using iMovie HD. My Canon ZR60 camcorder manual hinted at the solution for importing the VCR's analog video and sound.

    How did I connect the devices? I used my ST-250N Stereo Video cable supplied with my Canon ZR60 camcorder and connected it to the VCR's video and sound ports.

    I experimented with iMovie HD to solve the problem. My Canon ZR60 captured the master VCR tape footage after I set the camera to AC-In mode. Next, I reverse the book instructions from David Pogue's "iMovie 4 & iDVD, the Missing Manual" to make it work.

    I chose File to Share (Shift-Command-E) then I clicked on the "Videocamera" icon. The instructions said, `Record your movie to a tape in your videocamera. This operation may take several minutes to complete.' Next, I changed the wait time to a maximum of 59 seconds for camera to get ready. Finally, I changed the Add time to 59 seconds of black before and to end the movie.

    By using this method, I could capture 59 seconds of my RIC public speaking instruction master VCR tape to my MiniDV digital video cassette in my Canon ZR60 camcorder. Importing the entire RIC master VCR tape was 10 minutes and I had to stop and start 10 times bringing in the VCR film footage.

    The quality from analog to digital tape was quite good. A commercial Analog Signals into Digital Signals converter sells for $500 to $900 retail. Therefore, the effort was worth it for this project.

    Final Notes

    I find the iMovie HD program one of the best iMovies program series. iMovie HD worked well with some of my old iMovies 4 footage and enhanced my previous low-light film footage when transported and burned in iDVD 5 program.



    4-0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade, but...
    All I wanted to do was create a DVD for my brother.IMovie is decent.It has a few minor quirks to it.The amount of time for title slides has a max of 4 seconds.All of my slides are 4 seconds.Anything else seems too short and amateurish.It had a problem importing MGEP 1 movies.I had to go through a convoluted process to get the movie into place.Even then, the first .5 seconds of the audio was missing...due to the conversion process.This is not Apple fault, except they should be able to import those movies.all other formats works fine.

    I found iDVD to have major quirks.First, the audio was 1 second behind the video on the DVD.Then the audio kept advancing forward, make it ouf of sync, more and more as the movie played on.Then the movie would stop the audio at the first sound effect i placed in a text slide.This was extremely frustrating.I thought it was supposed to be easy!?

    iDVD just takes a movie, renders it, and burns it to a DVD with some selection screens.How hard is that?I ended up remaking one of my iMovie projects three time before it finally came out.The other project, well, I had to extract the audio so that it would be on the DVD (except the first and last video).Lastly, the final chapter (movie marker) pointed to the start of the movie.

    I like Garageband, it's easy but not a powerful tool like Logic.
    ITunes, well, it's iTunes!It is definitive.
    iPhoto is awesome.It still feels like it is just feature creeping, for better or worse.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Sometimes it doesn't just work.
    iLife '05is supposed to support RAW image processing (see product description above) for photos in iPhoto.The surprise is that although my Canon camera is supported, it's RAW image format is not, rendering iPhoto useless for most of my photographs.This was unexpected as third party companies have image conversion software that manages to do this with little problem.I know there are many RAW image formats, but it's the job of good technology to simplify a complex environment.

    I'm new to Apple products and very pleased overall since we purchased the imac G5.It seems like in most cases "it just works" describes their system well, but in this case, I guess we needed to read the "fine print".

    I also noticed that it is still not possible to record anything on GarageBand with the iSight's (Apples webcam/microphone).Apparently there is some type of software/hardware incompatibility.Expected in Windows machines, (fortunately) unusual in Apple products.Not a major issue for most, but the incompatibility of Apple hardware and software is still an unwelcome surprise.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The iPhoto alone is worth the price
    All of the improvements are great. I was editing a video for a presentation when my order arrived. There was a transition that I simply could not get the old iMovie to do. I installed the new iLife and told it to make the same transition in the film and it worked perfectly. I don't know why or how but I was sold five minutes after the box arrived.
    I still think iPhoto is the best improvement however. I really like the scrollable photo index when looking at a picture in edit mode. I also like the ability to eject the camera from within iPhoto(I sometimes forgot to do this before.)And the one-touch red-eye correction is nice too.
    Also I like the new themes for iDVD. The movie I was editing ended up getting one of the new themes instead of the old theme I had originally picked and I was very pleased with the end result. The presentation was a big success. ... Read more

    From Amazon.com

    To help you start your PSP collection, we've created this special bundle, which includes the games Wipeout Pure, Twisted Metal, NBA, Ape Escape, and World Soccer Tour in addition to the Sony PSP value pack which comes with the AC adapter, battery pack, 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, earbud headphones with remote control, soft case, hand strap, Spider-Man 2 movie, and of course the PSP system.

    The era of no-compromises handheld gaming has arrived. Get ready for immersive, 3D gaming on a console that is poised to change the way we think about portable devices. With wireless internet, video and digital music playback, and incredible data storage and connectivity options, the Sony PSP--or PlayStation Portable--is a complete solution for the mobile digital lifestyle. Sony has hit the mark by combining both horsepower and groundbreaking features into a package that weighs just a hair more than half a pound.

    Design
    The PSP's exceptional performance comes from a 333 MHz processor that dwarfs the speed of competing handheld consoles. Add this polygon-pushing muscle to 4 MB of fast DRAM and 32 MB of embedded RAM, and you've got a device with graphics rendering capabilities close to that of the PlayStation2. And because no game is complete without audio, the PSP is generously appointed with built-in stereo speakers, as well Dolby Digital 7.1 surround soundcapability. Sony has also pulled out all the stops with the PSP display. The bright, 4.3-inch LCD sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution--plenty of real estate for heavy gaming action and widescreen-format movies. All of this is powered by a removable, and rechargeable, lithium-ion battery.



    Screen machine: The 4.3-inch display sports a 16:9 aspect ratio and 480 x 272 pixel resolution. Movies and games on the go have never been more gorgeous.

    From a controls perspective, the PSP is made for gaming. If you're familiar with a PlayStation controller, you'll be a pro at the PSP's controls in no time. Directional buttons, as well as an analog stick are provided. Meanwhile, the familiar left and right shoulder buttons, as well as triangle, circle, cross and square buttons are integrated into the device's slim case. Finally, home, select, and start buttons give you quick access and control over the PSP's important functions.



    To have and to hold: The PSP's easy-to-master controls are cleverly integrated into the device's slim profile.

    Supported Media
    At the heart of the PSP is a new, proprietary media format known as the Universal Media Disc, or UMD. Each UMD can hold 1.8 GB of data, enough room for rich and complex games. UMDs, which are housed in a protective cover, slide into the rear of the PSP. Sony has declared the UMD an open format for developers and media content owners, so movies, music and other media are on the horizon from third parties. Sony has also signed on many popular game developers for the platform, so a deep library of titles is on tap.

    While the UMD is great for read-only media such as games and movies, Sony solves the problem of data storage with the addition of a Memory Stick Duo slot. With Memory Stick Duo media, you can store your saved games, downloaded online content, personal video and audio files, and more. When you want access to these files from your PC, simply use the PSP's USB 2.0 port to turn the device into a fastportable media drive. Then, drag and drop files such as your photos, MP3s, and videos onto the PSP, just as you would any other removable storage device. The PSP ships with a 32 MB Memory Stick Duo, and additional media with higher storage capacities are available.



    Major media: Sony's PSP-compatible Universal Media Disc (UMD) can hold 1.8 GB of data.

    Connectivity
    The PSP blows away the competition in the connectivity department. Indeed, the PSP's ability to connect to the internet, and to other PSPs and USB-based peripherals, is a real advantage. At the top of the list is Wifi connectivity, or IEEE 801.11b. Use this wireless internet standard to connect to other gamers around the world for hot multiplayer action--all from your couch, or your local Wifi hotspot. As mentioned, the PSP's USB 2.0 port is great for PC connectivity, but it also opens the PSP up for a whole range of future peripherals. Sony has plans for the PSP in other ways, too; the unit's infrared port speaks of remote control capabilities in the near future.

    A Digital Companion
    If you haven't already guessed, Sony has positioned the PSP to be much more than a gaming device. Out of the box, the device is ready to serve as a portable video player and photo viewer. By using the new H.264 MPEG-4 video standard, Sony obviously has its eyes on making the PSP a robust video device with support for feature length movies and more.In addition, the PSP offers a great way to transport and share your photos in JPEG format. And let's not forget the music. Load up your favorite MP3-encoded songs onto a Memory Stick Duo and you've got a portable audio powerhouse. The device also supports Sony's ATRACaudio codec, so you can play songs acquired from Sony's Connect Online Music Store. Sony even ships a nifty pair of earbuds--complete with an inline remote control-- with the PSP.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Is the PSP really what it's cracked up to be???
    I think PSP is more like eye candy than a really great handheld system. I have a PSP and I like it but it is fragile. the screen can scratch very easily. the games really are not that fun. Trust me when I say made a dumm mistake. Know I really would like a Nintendo DS. Hopefully i'll get a DS.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best portable gaming device ever!
    Without a doubt, the psp is the best portable gaming device ever.Don't listen to the poeple that keep complaining cuz they just like to complain.One of my few complaints, however is that almost all the accesories that come with the value pack are stuff that I didn't need.I have headphones and I dont need the OFFSENTERED earphones that came with this.The case is to soft. It isn't meant to protect the PSP but just to cary it in.The remote control, while being a nice feature isn't needed because all of the controls on it can be performed using the buttons on the PSP. The ac adapter and battery are needed, but the battery life on mine is only about 4 hours. I found the charge time to be about 1 hour and 40 minutes. The memory card is obviously intended for game saves and not songs but then again for all the people complaining Sony didn't intend for the PSP to be an ipod. The cleaning cloth works great and is needed because the PSP attracts dust and fingerprints very easily.While most of the accesories are usless, the PSP itself is very nice.To all the people out there complaining out there that it is too fragile or that they broke theirs maybe they should take care of their stuff!The only game that I have is NBA and I am very impressed with it.It looks just like a PS2 game.While the accesories are either usless or not needed, I am very pleased with my purchase.I think that you should get this.If you are worried about dead pixels or broken buttons than buy it at circuit city or best buy.I got mine at circuit city and it has no flaws.I hope this review helped you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If there's a God, he's answered all gamer's prayers
    Oh. My. God.
    This is just beautiful.
    Let me just say that DS is NOTHING compared to this. DS is nice and all (especially because it can play all the old GBA games. Would've been nicer if it still played reg. GB games. I have tried DS. I liked it for a while. It's fun to play, I'll say that. But it's not anything worth buying with this around. If someone you know has DS, mooch off them to play it.

    Some people have told me this is a waste of my money, to be throwing $250 around for a system, plus $40-50 a game. Wrong. This is completely worth it. As long as you have the cash (that is, meaning there's extra after it), you should get this. Thing is, a game doesn't come with it. But there's a great line-up right now, the four I currently own being Ape Escape (god I love that it's portable), Darkstalkers Cronicles (finally 2D fighters make a comeback), Twisted Metal: Head-On (reminds me of the 2nd one, which was the best out of all of them), and Lumines (being the best game on the PSP and one of the best games ever created). With more on the way, a few being Armored Core, Coded Arms, and probably the best handheld game ever, Infected.

    And not only are the games amazing, but so are the graphics quality, the amazing sound (for a handheld), and the overall feel of the system.

    Anyone that's thinking of buying this: do it. It's a huge investment, but completely worth it.

    P.S.- I also recommend Nyko's Charger Case. The battery life for the PSP is short, but this case, fully charged, increases the life by three times the norm. Oh, and don't buy Metal Gear AC!D. It's not as good as it's said to be, even if it's a Metal Gear game (actually, I think this game -is- on AC!D).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great....everything!
    This game system is amazing! It's great to have on a plane and be able to watch UMD's (like a small DVD sorta) without having to take a laptop. The colors are great when held at the right angle.

    Pros:
    Awesome screen
    Precise joystick
    light weight for size of screen
    durable

    Cons:
    senstive LCD screen
    volume could be louder/better speakers
    should come with cable to connect to computer i think.

    5-0 out of 5 stars LISTEN UP EVERYONE
