    5-0 out of 5 stars love it
    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!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Less for More
    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.

    We just got these cameras in the store and they are amazing. Everyone enjoys the LCD screen on the back. Instead of the typical fixed LCD it has a swivel one much like your Camcorder. It pops out so you can have it hang to the side, or you can flip it over to take pictures of yourself and your family if you don't have a cameraman handy. It can also flip back into the body to function just like previous LCD screens. Amazing innovation in digital camera's. Overall nice camera from Canon. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Fast, Highly Compatible Memory Card
    I purchased the SanDisk 512MB Secure Digital Card for use in my MP3 player (Rio Cali-256). I had never before seen a Secure Digital card and was surprised at how small the card is.

    I opened the package, inserted the card into my MP3 player, and presto. Instant recognition. No need to format the card.
    I started downloading my music files onto it, and noticed the speed was equivalent to the memory onboard my player. As a result, I now have an additional 120 mp3 files on my player!

    I'd give the product five stars, but the memory size did not appear to my MP3 player as 512MB. It was slightly less than this - not too much less, but when I buy 512 MB, I certainly want all 512.

    1-0 out of 5 stars BAD quality! stay away!
    I bought this (Sandisk 512 MB Secure Digital) in February and gave it to my mom as a gift in May. She used it in her digital camera and took pictures with it for her college reunion. Afterwards, the card displayed "Corrupt Data" and the pictures were lost! Do NOT buy this card, if you do not believe me, do a search for this card and you will see similar testimonials!
    The grief and sadness this card has caused me is not worth its cheaper price!
    user be warned!

    by the way, the one i have is made in china, i have read these ones are the WORST

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST deal from Amazon yet...
    I placed my order on the 10th & got it 4 days later.
    That was not what I expected. I wasn't scheduled to get till the 20th - 23rd.
    Talk about speedy delivery.
    Oh & the card works GREAT! Can't beat a 512MB SanDisk Card for $74.00.
    I will sure be using Amazon again!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Card. No Problems at all.
    I use the Sandisk 512 SD card in my HP 2215 IPAQ. I have never had a problem with it and it gives me plenty of space to store all of the music that I enjoy. I would love to get a 1 GB card but I want to wait for the prices to come down a little more. This card is fast but I would still like it to be faster. I'm not sure if it is the card slowing down the process or the USB connection to my IPAQ. I was thinking about buying the Sandisk ULTRA SD card to see if there is a speed difference.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible memory card for PDAs
    Well after purchasing my second Sandisk product (the other was the 512K CF card) I will never buy another Sandisk product again, don't care if it is cheaper. I know you other PDA owners know what I am talking about. For digital cameras I don't know, it may or may not work fine. But I've used the Sandisk cards in my Dell Axim and Compaq Ipaq and have had the same problems. When transferring large amounts of data >15MBs the files do not write properly. Half of my mp3s that I tranfer do not play. In addition if you transfer data that is greater than the available amount on the card it will frequently erase all data on the card!!!!!!!

    BEWARE, stay away if you are going to use this in your PDA. I've found no problems using Viking (1 CF card), MicroTech (1 CF) and Kingston ( 2 SD cards) products. ... Read more

    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

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Early Adopters Pick: January 2003. The first high-speed wireless networking router to use the 802.11g standard, which is four times faster than the current standard (802.11b) and backwards compatible.

    The Linksys Wireless-G broadband router is really three devices in one box. First, it's a wireless access point, which lets you connect Wireless-G or Wireless-B devices to the network. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices. Connect four PCs directly, or daisy chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.

    To protect your data and privacy, the Wireless-G broadband router can encrypt all wireless transmissions, and it supports the industrial-strength wireless security of 802.1x authentication and authorization. The router can serve as a DHCP server, has NAT technology to protect against Internet intruders, supports VPN pass-through, and can be configured to filter internal users' access to the Internet. Configuration is a snap with the Web browser-based configuration utility.

    With the Linksys Wireless-G broadband router at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multiplayer games with the flexibility, speed, and security you need!

    Wireless-G is the 54 Mbps wireless networking standard that's almost five times faster than the widely deployed Wireless-B (802.11b) products found in homes, businesses, and public wireless hotspots around the country. But since they share the same 2.4 GHz radio band, Wireless-G devices can also interoperate with existing 11 Mbps Wireless-B equipment.

    Because both standards are built-in, you can protect your investment in existing 802.11b infrastructure, and migrate to the new screaming-fast Wireless-G standard as your needs grow.

    For more information on the differences between an Access Point and a Router with Access Point, see the following table:

    Features

    • Shares a single Internet connection and other resources with Ethernet wired and Wireless-G clients

    5-0 out of 5 stars Work with LAN, Apple Airport Card, and 802.11g card mixed
    I just got the product today. I set up and had in running in less than 15 minutes (might be because I used Linksys 4-port router before and the setting is pretty much the same).
    My network provider is Cox.net which requires you to enter "cox.net" in host name and possibly the domain name also. I also use the "MAC address cloning", since it is recommended with the older wired 4-port router.

    Just like the older Linksys 802.11b wireless router, you need to enter WEP key in the format of "$" followed by your 26 Hex key generated by the admin utitity in order to make it work with Apple Airport Card (802.11b). I found out one glitch before updating the firmware that MSN messenger won't work on the Airport card but I can browse internet using browser just fine. This problem was gone after updating firmware to the newest version.

    Another setting with Linksys Wireless-G card is no-brainer. It was quick and simple. I think it is one of the product that works great with Apple Wireless solution and saves you a lot of money instead of having to buy that "Airport Extreme" base.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Problems
    I bought this router a few months ago and have had a host of problems with it. First, it frequently drops the radio connection. This is apparently a common problem - I've seen quite a few people discussing it on various message boards. Second, the VPN pass-through just stopped working. The customer support people were not particularly helpful (I agree with an earlier post that the people at the call center in India are very difficult to understand), but they did arrange to have a new unit sent out to me. Overall, I wonder if a different brand would have been a better bet for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to install; flawless operation
    I am using this router with a DSL connected modem. The router is connected to my computer using an ethernet connection (4 are provided) and is wirelessly connected to my wifes' machine located about 75 feet away. Her machine uses a Netgear PC adapter. I was concerned about the signal strength due to the distance, a concern which proved to be correct. Ours is a single level home. The signal was okay but marginally. I solved the problem by installing a magnetic mount 5 db gain omnidirectional vertical antenna on her machine. The 5 db antenna is magnetically anchored to her table by sitting on a "recycled" tuna can top and this raised the signal to full strength as shown by the Netgear signal meter. The 5 db gain antenna is usually available on the Ebay site and sells for about $15.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Overall quite good but VPN support is flaky
    I just purchased this along with the PC and notebook cards. Installation of all three was very smooth (PC = WinXP, notebook = Win2k), and wireless performance seems to be good. I have the PC in a room immediately below the router and signal strength through the ceiling shows 'Very Good'. If you are just using for the Internet, I'd give it a 5. My main issue: VPN software support (???). According to Linksys technical support (quite terrible, btw), the router should only work as a pass-though device which requires that you forward port 500 (for IPSec traffic) or 1723 (for pptp). Note this is in the "Applications and Gaming" tab of the admin GUI. Linksys told me that in this configuration I would only be able to access sites on the intranet (aka no external web sites) while connected with VPN. However, I do seem to be able to do both when connected via TCP or UDP transparent tunneling. I just cannot get to anything on my local network (no ping, no sharing, etc.) until I disconnect VPN (which is Cisco VPN Client 3.5). Note: I also power cycled the router after everything was running and it did not reconnect to the internet even upon refreshing...I eventually had to temporarily connect to it using a wired connection to get it back online. (3.5 stars)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome coverage and trouble free install
    This is the BEST router out there. Fast, trouble free, easy to install and use -doest interfere with anything else in the house including the VOIP phone. Have recommended it to atleast 10 other people and they all love it. MUST BUY if you are looking for a fast reliable and hassle free router. ... 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.

    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 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 love it
    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 practical and easy to use
    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!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Viking 256 MB SD Flash Card used in HP 935 Photosmart Camera
    Received the card in a reasonable amount of time. Put the card in the slot and it did not fit exactly like the HP 32MB digital card fit. In other words, the HP card has a "spring-like" feel to its insertion and extraction. The Viking card fit snugly in the camera and did not "spring". At first the camera did not recognize the card, then after taking it back out and re-inserting it, the camera did recognize the card. I was looking only for more memory space, so faster action on the camera is not of importance to me. This gives me 440 pictures at 1MB per picture with 2-stars compression. I am happy with the card at the price I paid (~$61.00 w/$15.00 rebate = $46.00).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Viking 256 MB SD Card (SD256M)
    I bought this for my Minolta Dimage G500 digital camera. It worked the first time I inserted the card without any problem. I find the speed acceptable - It is as fast as the 16MB Toshiba card that Minolta sent with the camera (G500 is a fast camera). Before buying I checked the memory compatibility with G500 at:
    http://config.vikingcomponents.com/amazon/ or viking.amazon.com
    I have been using it for only a couple of days and hence can't comment about the long term reliability (that's why only 4 stars)

    5-0 out of 5 stars What's not to like about this SD card?
    Fantastic results in my Minolta Dimage G500! Speed, reliability, and the right price. Nary a problem from day one.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Okay fo MP3 player but too slow for a D-CAM
    I have this card for over half year with my Minota F100.
    It works proply but it writes in too slow. It taks about a couple of seconds ( about 5-10 sec) to write a 5 MB image file into the card so I have to wait date write in in order to take next shot.

    Now I use this card for my Rio Cali MP3 player, it works peoperly
    because it does not requie the cared to write in and read a big file in a fast rate.

    1-0 out of 5 stars DONT MAKE MY MISTAKE!
    it's been okay for a few months, then today, everything is suddenly gone! all gone, windows still showing 130M occupied, but nothing can be found! I tried quite a few software so far, nothing can be found!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great card!
    Bought one of these cards and I love it. I have a Canon 300d/Digital Rebel.

    I originally used a Canon 32MB card which performed horribly. It would take on average 10 seconds to write one JPG at the highest resolution.

    With the 512MB Ultra II card it takes from 1-2 seconds to write the same image. It also allows you to shoot continuous shots longer.

    With 6+ Megapixels--I think the 512MB card is the perfect size for a full day of shooting. I can get about 165-170 shots on a card. I am glad I did not get the 256MB card.

    Lastly, it also allows quicker image previewing from the camera, flipping between images is so so much faster. I think the extra money for this card is well worth it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Digital Rebel
    This is the card you want if your getting a Digital Rebel! The 512 will get you about 142 pictures.It downloads fast ,and gives you great pictures,what more do you want.If you are spending at least 1000 dollars on a camera don't go cheap on the compact flash cards! Get a good one! This card I got online for about 150 dollars.Make sure you are getting the Ultra 2 not just the Ultra there is a difference the Ultra is good but not as fast as the Ultra 2 ,you will be thankful you spent a few a

    extra bucks and got the best card for the Canon Digital Rebel

    5-0 out of 5 stars Got mine from Amazon. 60X write, 66X read.
    I pre-ordered this item from Amazon. Apparently, there was an initial delay with Amazon's supply, but I just got mine. With a price like this and free shipping (which, despite being "Super Saver," was speedy as usual), I have no complaints.

    Works fine so far, and the capacity boost over my old 64MB card has me almost giddy: The "pictures remaining" counter on my 3MP camera jumped from about 40 to over 300.

    Helpful info: The manufacturer's "X" speed rating equivalent, which isn't easy to find online, is 60X write and 66X read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon can't deliver
    I ordered this before tax day in April and I am now told that I won't see it until August. Amazon has blown past expected delivery dates several time so far, so I have no reason think that they will meet the August date. Order this product only if you never want to receive it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works fine - but not from Amazon
    I have two of these, one in a Canon Powershot S500 and the other in a Powershot S1 IS and both work fine. No problems at all.

    The ordering issue was something else, eventually I gave up on Amazon's extended and extending delivery times and bought them on Ebay for $10 more. I buy a lot of gear from Amazon and I was disappointed this time, but that's one in a hundred where they have totally failed my expectations, not bad overall.

    It's a fast memory card, it works, it's available on Ebay. What else is there to say? ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Adding megapixel power to the popular S400 Digital Elph, Canon's PowerShot S500 bumps up the resolution to 5 megapixels--providing richer details and improved clarity. Elegantly designed and super compact, the S500 has a protective stainless steel shell with a celabrite finish, which mixes metals and ceramics to produce a tough cool-toned exterior that is visually stunning. It also features a 3x optical zoom, high-resolution video capture, and Canon's new Print/Share button, which helps you quickly connect directly to a printer or send an image via e-mail.

    Detail of S500 image
    The S500's 5-megapixel sensor captures a wealth of detail.
    Optics and Resolution
    The 5-megapixel PowerShot S500 can capture 2592 x 1944 images for poster-size prints. It also has 1600 x 1200, 1024 x 768, and 640 x 480 resolution modes. The 3x optical zoom lens has a focal length of 7.4-22.2mm (35mm equivalent: 36-108mm). It also has a 4.1x digital zoom.

    Movie Mode
    The PowerShot S500 lets you capture high-resolution 30-second video clips with sound at 640 x 480 (10 frames per second). You can also capture 3-minute movies at lower resolution settings: 320 x 240 and 160 x 120 (both at 15 frames per second).

    • Real-image optical zoom viewfinder

    • 2x to 10x zoom into captured images while reviewing via the LCD

    Canon Technology Features

    • Digic Imaging Processor: While much technical discussion of digital cameras centers around the optics and the CCD sensor, the complex task of image rendering is the job of the image processor--the "brains" of a digital camera. Canon's latest, exclusive DIGIC Imaging Processor significantly enhances digital camera performance in numerous areas. DIGIC's high-speed signal processing is combined with high-capacity buffering to give Canon digital cameras fast response and continuous shooting capability unmatched by other digital cameras. DIGIC delivers longer battery life and beautiful, rich color rendition with far fewer white saturation problems. And DIGIC's unequaled precision delivers clear, noise-free images that are demonstrably superior.
      Canon's 9-point autofocus feature
      Canon's 9-point AiAF makes it easier to focus even when your subject is off-center in the frame.
    • iSAPS Technology: Canon iSAPS (Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology dramatically improves the performance of AF (Autofocus), AE (Auto Exposure), and AWB (Auto White Balance). By analyzing a huge volume of photography data, accumulated over 60 years and the manufacture of over 150 million cameras, Canon engineers arrived at statistical relationships among focal length, focus distance, scene brightness, and other factors. Equipped with this "fore knowledge" Canon PowerShot cameras can optimize AF/AE/AWB settings for any given scene more rapidly and more effectively.
    • Multi-point AiAF: Canon's wide-area, multi-point AiAF (artificial intelligence autofocus) automatically selects one or more focusing points based on factors, such as subject position and motion. AiAF works in conjunction with iSAPS Technology to more quickly and accurately achieve autofocus under a wide variety of shooting conditions. You get fast, accurate AF whether you hold the camera horizontally or vertically, with stationary or moving subjects, with off-center subjects, and even in low-light/low-contrast lighting.

    Direct Printing/Sharing
    The PowerShot S500 introduces a new Print/Share button that speeds and simplifies printing to compatible Canon and PictBridge enabled printers and one-touch image transfer to Windows XP, Me, 2000, and 98 computers for use with image processing programs, uploading to the Internet, or placement in e-mail. When connected to a Canon Compact Photo printer, a Movie Print mode divides the selected clip into equal parts and prints thumbnails of a maximum 63 equally spaced frames onto a single sheet of Postcard Size Paper.

    Storage and Transfer
    Images and video are stored on CompactFlash memory cards (Type I only) and the included 32 MB card holds approximately 21 images at the Large/Fine setting. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

    Power and Size
    The camera is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion battery (NB-1LH). With the LCD on, you will get approximately 190 shots. It measures 3.43 x 2.24 x 1.09 inches and weighs 6.5 ounces (without batteries).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Point-and-shoot at its best
    This is my first digital camera, and I have no regrets. It's a damn fine point-and-shoot with very intuitive controls and can be used virtually right out of the box (just charge the battery a bit). The video capture feature is just fine; afterall, if you wanted a video camera, you would have purchased one. I considered the Sony DSC-T1, but with Sony's proprietary memory requirements, the cost/benefit just didn't add up. The S500 is a sturdy camera, and should satisfy the casual photo enthusiast for quite some time. The included software is also user-friendly and easy to use.

    My Canon Elan 7E and Canon Elph 2 kept me content for quite some time. With hundreds if not thousands of dollars spent on photo-processing however, it was simply time to get into the digital age.

    For accessories, you'll want to get a case for it (such as the PSC-50) as it only comes with a wrist strap. In addition, consider purchasing a larger CF card (256MB or 512MB... I purchased the SanDisk Ultra II 256MB). Once you buy a card, you'll be able to use it in digital SLRs if you go that route; the included 32MB card will quickly run out of space if you are taking full resolution photos.

    Anyone interested in taking the leap into digital photography and wanting unbiased reviews should take a look at Steve's Digicams at www.steves-digicams.com.

    Choosing a digital camera is very much a function of lifestyle. If you are used to SLRs and like being able to bring multiple lenses for special photography opportunities, then consider the Digital Rebel or EOS 10D; you won't find better cameras on the market. If however, you want a compact camera that you can easily take anywhere, consider the S500 as a happy travel partner to capture those moments, and never process film again!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Still Picture Quality for Compact Digital Cameras
    If you just need a digital camera to take pictures in the sun light, you can almost pick any digital camera.

    But if you want your camera to take great pictures under all different light conditions (i.e. in door, with dark background, wedding photos and other complex light situations), then Canon S500 will be the only choice. Thanks to Canon DIGIC Image Processor and iSAPS Technology, this Canon S500 really takes perfect pictures in all different light conditions, which no compact digital camera from other vender can match.

    However the Canon case for S500 is very dispointing, which is poorly made with cheap fake leather.

    I found the most beautiful, perfect fitting leather case for Canon S410/S500 from http://stores.ebay.com/ProCases

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera
    I find the double zooming feature (optical/ digital) very useful and powerful.

    The quality of the resulting pictures is fantastic.

    I highly recommend this product.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It might be your memory cards
    Not all memory cards work well with all cameras. I tried to use a Viking card with my Canon s230, and got the E18 error mentioned here. As soon as I swapped my SanDisk back in, the problem was gone forever. I think sending the memory card back was a much better and cheaper solution than ditching an excellent camera.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Beware of moving this camera between indoors and outdoors
    This camera is the next generation in Canon's Powershot family. Let me start by saying that I have not bought this model, but that this cautionary note is based on a significant flaw in the design of the S400 which I have. I don't believe this flaw has been corrected in this updated model.

    I bought an S400 and used it for seven months. I was very happy with it. At that point, however, it stopped working without warning. When I sent it in to the factory service center, I discovered something very troubling about the camera that had I known earlier would have caused me to not purchase it.

    It turns out that this model--as well as many other Canon digital cameras, the tech told me--has an aluminum body. If you subject the camera to temperature changes (and it only takes a change of 10-15 degrees, I was told) condensation will form inside the camera, and the camera will start to corrode, eventually rendering it unusable.

    This is what had happened to me. What misuse had I subjected my camera to that caused this to happen? I took it on vacation to the beach with me. Carrying it from the hot and humid beach into an air conditioned car was enough to destroy the camera!

    The tech told me that he sees this all the time. He didn't know the percent of all Canon cameras that suffer this fate, but he said a lot of them do. He told me he gets lots of cameras back from people who have taken them on vacation to Arizona, Mexico, and Hawaii. He even saw one that had stopped working because the owner kept it stored in a stuffy closet. When the owner eventually took it out to use it, the temperature change back to normal room temperature was enough to fry the camera.

    I was told that this damage is not covered under warranty and that the manual cautions users not to subject their cameras to this sort of treatment. Canon will not provide service on cameras that suffer this fate. If this happens to your camera during the waranty period you're basically out of luck. You lose the investment you made in the camera and any peripherals that you bought.

    I hope anyone interested in purchasing a Canon digital camera will learn from my very expensive mistake in purchasing one. See the review section for the S400 on Amazon.com for even more stories from people who have had this same problem.

    What I said about the S400 holds true here as well. The camera is very nicely designed, but it's poorly engineered. If you plan to use the camera indoors only this is a great model. But if you plan to use the camera both outdoors and indoors, if there is a difference in humidity and temperature between the two where you live, and if you don't want to run the risk of totally losing your investment in the camera, this isn't the model or brand for you. ...

    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

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not a commodity if you shoot in Panorama Mode
    Several reviewers have indicated xD memory is a commodity. Buyer beware: If you have an Olympus digital camera, and you shoot in the Panorama mode (which I use regularly and really like when snowboarding and backpacking), you HAVE TO HAVE AN OLYMPUS BRANDED xD CARD; non-Olympus cards don't support and won't enter the mode

    3-0 out of 5 stars commodity product; buy where you want
    I bought this item from the local office supply store. Costco has it cheaper and has a better return policy (and is 5 min. from my house). Buy this where it makes sense.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Beware xD memory...
    Thank heavens analogue cameras standardised on 35mm. Just imagine you went into a shop and had a choice of 2inch, 30mm, 25mm, 33mm, 35mm etc films, only one of which would fit your camera. Olympus have done a Sony and repackaged the same old memory chips (e.g. SD, MMC, SM, CF, MD) as xD and decided to sell it at twice the price of SD memory. Once you buy one of their (admittedly good) digital cameras the small xD market will force you to buy expensive memory that is incompatible with almost everything else our there. As I already own some cheap standard SD memory that's not usable in most Olympus cameras, I have had to look elsewhere for a camera :o(

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Card!!
    This is a great card if you want to shoot video or shoot high mb photos. Unfortunately for Amazon, its less than $80 at Costco.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Enough of confusing standards and formats
    I wish the electronics manufacturers don't take consumers for granted. Every year, they come with new storage cards and drive formats. That is the reason many like me are not happy to buya a new electronic device. How can you improve the economy if you don't standardise these sort of things and give the confidence to the consumer that what he/she buys will stay productive and useful at least for two to three years? Remember it is the middle class common man who forms the largest consumer base. We just got over a few years ago from Betamax and VHS formats. Now we have competing DVD formats making most of us totally confused and preventing us from buying any of the multiformat DVD writers even! Until these sort of the incompatabilities are not sorted by all the manufacturers together, they are bound to loose their investment and have poor returns. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The ultracompact and highly stylish Canon PowerShot SD110 updates its predecessor, the SD100, with Canon's new Print/Share button, which helps you quickly send your photos directly to your printer or upload them to your PC. The SD110 also features 3.2-megapixel resolution; 2x optical zoom; nine-point artificial-intelligence autofocus (AiAF) for accurate, automatic focus; and a movie mode with sound.

    Optics and Resolution
    The PowerShot SD110 can create images of intense color and terrific quality--even in your biggest prints.
    The PowerShot SD110 offers a 3.2-megapixel CCD sensor that produces images up to 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, for photo-quality 8 x 10 prints or medium-quality 11 x 14 enlargements. Other resolution modes include 1,600 x 1,200, 1024 x 768, and 640 x 480. The superb all-glass 2x optical zoom lens has a focal length of 5.4-10.8mm (equivalent to 35-70mm in 35mm photography). It also incorporates a 3.2x digital zoom for a total zoom of 6.4x.

    Movie Mode
    The PowerShot SD110 lets you capture high-resolution 30-second video clips with sound at 640 x 480 (10 frames per second). You can also capture 3-minute movies at lower resolutions: 320 x 240 and 160 x 120 (both at 15 frames per second).

    More Features

    • Quick Shot function reduces the time lag between pressing the shutter button and starting exposure
    • Nine-point artificial-intelligence autofocus (AiAF) for fast and sharp images, even with off-center subjects
    • 1.5-inch low-temperature polycrystalline silicon TFT color LCD (118,000 pixels)
    • Real-image optical zoom viewfinder
    • Built-in flash with auto, redeye reduction, and slow sync modes
    • Record a voice memo of up to 60 seconds and attach to images
    • Shutter speed: 1/2000-15 seconds
    • White balance control: Auto, preset (daylight, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, fluorescent H), or custom white balance
    • 2x to 10x zoom into captured images while reviewing via LCD
    • Continuous shooting: 2.2 frames (maximum 12 images)
    Canon Technology Features
    • DIGIC Imaging Processor: While much technical discussion of digital cameras centers around the optics and the CCD sensor, the complex task of image rendering is the job of the image processor--the "brains" of a digital camera. Canon's latest, exclusive DIGIC imaging processor significantly enhances digital camera performance in numerous areas. DIGIC's high-speed signal processing is combined with high-capacity buffering to give Canon digital cameras fast response and continuous shooting capability unmatched by other digital cameras. DIGIC delivers longer battery life and beautiful, rich color rendition with far fewer white saturation problems. And DIGIC's unequaled precision delivers clear, noise-free images that are demonstrably superior.
    • iSAPS Technology: Canon iSAPS (Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology dramatically improves the performance of AF (autofocus), AE (autoexposure), and AWB (auto white balance). By analyzing a huge volume of photography data accumulated over 60 years and the manufacturing of over 150 million cameras, Canon engineers arrived at statistical relationships among focal length, focus distance, scene brightness, and other factors. Equipped with this "foreknowledge," Canon PowerShot cameras can optimize AF/AE/AWB settings for any given scene more rapidly and more effectively.
    • Multipoint AiAF: Canon's wide-area, multipoint AiAF (artificial-intelligence autofocus) automatically selects one or more focusing points based on factors such as subject position and motion. AiAF works in conjunction with iSAPS Technology to more quickly and accurately achieve autofocus under a wide variety of shooting conditions. You get fast, accurate AF whether you hold the camera horizontally or vertically, whether you have stationary or moving subjects, with off-center subjects, and even in low-light or low-contrast situations.

    Advanced Printing
    The camera features Canon's Print/Share button, which illuminates when a successful connection is made between the camera's USB port and a PictBridge-compatible printer or Windows PC. When it is lit, pushing the button will print the currently displayed image (based on the printer's default PictBridge or Direct Printer settings) or automatically transfer the image to your PC. When connected to a Canon compact photo printer, the camera/printer combination allows for "movie-prints" (sequential frames of a movie clip printed as thumbnails on a single card) and photo IDs (passport-style ID photographs).

    Direct Photo Printers
    For large-format desktop printing, try one of the Direct Photo Printers which allow you to print directly in one of two ways: plugging the compatible PowerShot camera into the Direct Photo Printer using the supplied cable, or simply inserting a memory card with a supplied adapter. You can also connect the printer to your computer, for more options. Print high-resolution, borderless images in postcard size or as 8.5 x 11s within minutes.

    Storage and Transfer
    Images and video are stored on tiny Secure Digital (SD) memory cards; the camera is also compatible with MultiMedia cards (MMC). The included 16 MB card holds approximately 21 images at the large/fine setting. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1 connectivity, which means the camera can be connected to any USB-based computer running Windows Me/2000/XP or Mac OS 8.6 or later without your having to install any software.

    Power and Size
    The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (NB-3L). With the LCD on, you will get approximately 210 shots; with the LCD off, 550 shots. It measures 3.35 x 2.20 x 0.94 inches and weighs 5.82 ounces without batteries.

    What's in the Box
    The package contains the PowerShot SD110 digital camera, a 16 MB Secure Digital memory card, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (NB-3L), a battery charger (CB-2LU), USB and A/V cables, and a wrist strap.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Smallest of the Canon cameras delivers in every way!
    I've had this camera for just over a month now and I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am with it. But I'm gonna try.

    From my understanding, Canon went with the SD format on this camera to cut down on its body size, and it shows. Stylish and sturdy without the bulkiness and weight of other cameras, you can literally throw it in your pocket or purse and go.

    Usability on this little number is top-notch. The AiAf focusing helps to ensure that you get the best photos every time, and the red eye reduction is on par with some of the best consumer cameras I've seen. Best of all, it's easy to use for anybody to use (my kid brother loves it more than I do), but when you're ready for something more, the camera's Manual Mode gives you a bevvy of options to work with.

    The battery seems to go as long as you do (though I recommend buying an extra battery to be on the safe side), and how Canon managed to pack 3.2 MP's worth of quality into the SD110 is beyond me.

    Setup on my computer was a snap. Running Mac OS 10.3, all I did was plug my camera in and voila, the camera was recognized immediately! I haven't tried the included software but if you have Apple's iPhoto you really don't need it.

    In addition to an extra battery (the batteries on this camera are rechargeable, by the way), you would be wise to purchase a bigger memory card as the included 16MB SD card simply doesn't do it justice. With a 256MB SD card (I've been using Delkin's eFilm card), I can fit 152 photos at the camera's highest quality and size settings.

    In short, if what you're looking for is a no-nonsense camera for those precious moments that treads the balance of form and function, look no further than the SD110.

    5-0 out of 5 stars LISTEN TO THIS....... GET THE CAMERA!
    The Canon Powershot SD110 is the most practical, compact, easy to use digital camera. Yes, it's expensive and I do recommend an extra 256 SD card, but the money is all worth it. I just bought the camera a few weeks ago, and the reviews for the SD100 are basically the reviews for this one. None of the bad things that they say about the camera are true exept I do recommend an extra battery. The battery takes 95 minutes to charge and the manual says it can take over 210 images with the screen. If, however, your battery is running low, it will give you a 10 second warning. Not much... The SD100 and the SD110 are just about the same camera but the SD110 has a much faster shutter speed and has a print button which I find no use of. The quality of the pictures of this camera are absoulutely beautiful. The camera has settings of normal (1 mp), fine (2 mp), and superfine (3 mp) (I think). I took pictures in fine mode and they were the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen! The superfine mode pictures were even better. The inside shots are sweet! People lie about the quality of the pictures indoors. Why sit here and read my review about the camera..... GO BUY IT, YOU WILL ABSOULUTELY REGRET IT IF YOU DON'T!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Still Picture Quality !
    If you just need a digital camera to take pictures in the sun light, you can almost pick any digital camera.

    But if you want your camera to take great pictures under all different light conditions (i.e. in door, with dark background, wedding photos and other complex light situations), then Canon SD110 will be the only choice. Thanks to Canon DIGIC Image Processor and iSAPS Technology, this Canon SD110 really takes perfect pictures in all different light conditions, which no compact digital camera from other vender can match.

    However the Canon case for SD110 is very dispointing, which is really designed for the bigger S500/S410 and is too big for SD110/SD100.

    I found the most beautiful, perfect fitting leather case for Canon SD110/SD100 from http://stores.ebay.com/ProCases

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use, Great camera!!!
    I don't understand the review of the person below that complains about this camera. This is one of the best and easy to use. I have the S400 and got this one for my sister. This one is smaller and lighter than mine, and the quality is as good. Yes, you will need to purchase a bigger capacity SD Memory card, but now a days those are cheap. The video function is easy to use and the quality is very good. I highly recommend this camera.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very compact camera, great photos and features
    My only complaint about the camera is the stingy SD card size of 16MB, but this is cheap and easy enough to fix.

    Apart from that this camera seems to be an excellent buy. The battery charges very quickly, and seems to provide good life.

    The photo quality is great, and the automatic mode seems to expose and fill-flash perfectly in every situation, similar to my Canon SLR.

    The video feature works very well, and the microphone quality seems excellent even with a lot of background noise.

    The flash seems to work great for indoor use (not tried outdoor yet) giving nice even coverage, and perfect exposures. The red-eye reduction seems to work great also.

    The build quality seems to be great, and the bundled PC software and TV out cables mean that this camera can do pretty much everything I could want.

    I would recommend this camera in a heartbeat if you are looking for a small point and shoot. ... Read more
