Saw a big sign in Lewisham store, for reductions on all pre-owned ipod shuffles - the best deal seems to be the 1gb ones at £12!

They are the second generation type as pictured, better than the weird new one!..

None in stock in Lewisham, but worth popping in your local! All sizes were discounted, but can't remember other prices!

Best fleabay price £25!

Wow, bargain :-D

It's not bad, though 1gb really is pretty poor. I'd say it's worth it, but only just.

Unless you've had one and used it for what it was intended for, then comparing it to higher capacity players isn't really fair. If that's what you were doing.

It's well designed and a well built piece of kit. I think it's worth it at this price.

A stylish solid little mp3 player that works seamlessly with itunes.. and if you get bored of it you can sell for twice the price!

If they had them in stock I would have bought many!..

I have to say I prefer this one to the new shuffle.

I like to use the shuffle at the gym, and with the new ones you can't use your own headphones!!!

As for the capacity, it is perfect for a player like this. I just change the songs every so often, before I go to the gym or a run.

Although £13 dearer, the Sansa Clip 4 Gig at Currys is a massively better deal.

Tons more storage, better sound quality, FM radio, screen, no iTunes, voice recorder.......

great deal x heat added

I have one of these and use it for running. I have several other MP3 players, some with better sound quality but I keep returning to this for running because it is a no nonsense player with a pretty fantastic clip which means I don't have to wear one of those stupid arm bands to carry my MP3 player.

Ok, there is no screen, but good luck trying to read a tiny screen with sweat dripping in your eyes and bouncing up and down all the time. I prepare my playlist before I go for my run, put it on my ipod and then off I go. Battery only lasts 10 hours or so, but my longest run so far is only 2 hours 35ish so plenty left. Used it the following day for a 1hr run without recharging.

Bargain at this price, but change the headphones if you are using it for running. I've just bought these and they are really good. Decent bass for this type of earphone and you can still hear the traffic (which is a good thing when out running) http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/8084298/Sennheiser-PMX-80-Sport-Mini-Backband-In-Ear-Headphones/Product.html

you're missing the point

Whenever I see a gamestation deal, I know for a fact that the guys who work in my local branch buy up any good deal and then re-sell via auction sites. When I popped in to see about the cheap blu-rays, I was informed that one of the guys who worked there had bought the lot, before the shop even opened.:x
#15
Excellent this is just what I am after as I only want this for use at the gym.

How many songs would a 1gb hold appx please as I have no idea

...which presumably is "it's made by Apple, I have to have it".

There can only be one point; that for £12 more you can have an MP3 player which is better in every single way (with the possible exception of the solidity of build) in which the two can be compared.

How is it better in every single way? Itunes is VERY easy to use in regard to putting songs onto it.

I bought a cheap non ipod mp3 player for my dad for xmas, hes not very computer literate so explaining to him how to get the songs from his CD collection onto his computer, then onto his mp3 player was a nightmare.

This is very cheap for an official apple product, so voted hot.

Just thought you should know that 1GB should let you hold probably more towards the 200-250 range in songs, as 1 Minute tends to be more or less 1MB.


Also @londislagerhound, since when was 'no itunes' an advantage. I see itunes management and syncing a huge benefit/feature of using an ipod instead of another brand mp3 player. Beats dragging and dropping random mp3s onto a flash disk, imo. If you watch Apple's keynote presentation in 2001 when they announce the ipod, it seems their favourite feature was itunes syncing.

So double the price? Uh, yeah. :thinking: It's not better.

Minimum wage is a sucker, but, if you're that peeved, report it to their head office.

Has anyone managed to get one?

You're assuming the Sansa is drag and drop only. It isn't. You can sync using Windows Media Player, which is every bit as intuitive as iPlayer IMO.

And more advanced users have the option of drag and drop if they prefer, so yes, better in every way.

At standard release bitrate (v2/a little over 192kbit vbr) then you are looking at 1.5mbyte per minute. Average song length of 5mins gives you 7.5mb. Divide that by 1000 and you get 133 tracks, on average.

If you buy legit downloads at 320kb CBR, then you are looking at 2.4mbyte per minute, or 83 average tracks.

Since ever. But it's not really a problem, you can easily manage ipods without itunes now - my favourite way is using foobar2k and the foo_pod plugin. Drag and drop would be nice, but apple have never been known for offering customers what they want.

But why are people against itunes? The only thing that I don't like about itunes is the fact that songs cannot be copied back off an ipod. Apart from that, I think itunes is as good a media management program as any. It's certainly the easiest to use, imo.

Various reasons, and it changes from person to person.

That is one of the major problems with it, but far from the only one.


It's certainly the easiest to use, imo.

Personally I don't find it that easy to use - on the whole it's pretty average in "difficulty", but it makes some things overly complicated for no reason. For other things it's just nowhere near versatile enough and is too simple.

Like I said before though, it's not really a problem any more, because there are so many alternatives to itunes.
#27
Love how this has attracted the anti-Apple brigade.

I couldn't care less.

It's hardly a big deal having to use iTunes unless you are running Linux. It's a good device and well worth this price if you can get one. Forgot to add that it has withstood heavy rain during many of my runs.

Tempted to get a spare.

I would certainly expect anything to be better in every single way if it is double the price. If you are using it for sports then I think build quality is the most important quality for the mp3 player to have anyway.
