Latest version of the eponymous portable music player...

Saw this in-store in Brentwood, it also qualified for the spend over £50 and get 5p a litre off fuel offer. They had plenty in stock (and a good variety of colours) as well as the 8GB at £106:00 (but with a free £15 iTunes card). Seems cheaper than pretty well anywhere else I can find on the intertubes. Offer does not seem to be online where the price is £145:00!

Ah, but is this nationwide? Hot if it is, not much use (to me) if it isn't!
#2
I'd have to say Cold. Wait like 2 weeks, Apple are apparently changing the Nano/Touch to have a camera built in!
#3
Dont think its nationwide, I was in sainsburys earlier and they did not have this, I went for the HSM game for the wii that was on this site yesterday but they didnt have that either.
#4
This deal could go nationwide though! As the new iPod nano is out in the next few weeks! Hot regardless of whether it is nationwide.

Why would you vote cold? That is a different product and will be significantly more expensive and frankly who really wants a low grade camera in their mp3 player. I avoid apple at all times but if you're after one of these it's a great price. Heat added.

Why would anyone buy a Nano (not including Touch's) when there's so much better other MP3 players with much more functionality and a much bigger screen?

I'd probably buy one (and I've had an Iriver for years, so don't particulalry rate apple - because I have a Sony Hifi with an ipod dock. I can also get an ipod lead for my car stereo which enables me to change track etc. from my steering wheel remote. For those reasons alone - I would buy an ipod.

Yes there are other, non apple, better MP3 players, but surely you have to admit that ipod IS now the de facto standard for connectors and docks etc.

my son for one, he won't consider any other make - he wants a new one for his b'day in Oct. however I was in Sainsburys today and this offer was not on. They had 8GB for £106.

managed to get an ex-display one today after trawling round, very pleased, got it for £90. The only one that was new was orange and that would not have gone down well. Thanks for posting this deal.

At the end of the day, Apple is the market leader and they all try to copy them.

Apple are the best just accept it.

Hot for price, but there are a load of new iPods coming out in the next couple of weeks.

#12

holy s!

most of them are closed!! bank holiday i think

H+R added!!
#16
It is a good price for the 16gb .The problem though is availability , I feel that if I go to Sainsburys it will be a wasted trip. Voted hot if you can get hold of one, although im interested in the new models that are coming out soon.
#17
It looks like this could be nation wide! Not all sainsburys sell ipod nanos however the ones that do are showing up at £99.99 !!!! for the 16gb!!! Respect to Boris the Bold!

and in stock! not many peopel have clocked on!

Sheep....

You do realise the sound quality on ipods is a fair amount below that of other brands (Sony, Samsung, Sandisk.....probably others beginning with 's', and every other letter of the alphabet, they are that bad).
Ipods are for people who want an ipod just because it's an ipod.
Those of us who like to listen to high quality sound opt for something else.
#19
im not a apple lover or hater... I used to be lol... everyone at my work has an iphone however.. people should get what they like.. and if its the iphone then so be it

the volume level on this is crap no way of setting your custom eq

While what you say is perfectly true you have to realise that for a lot of teens it is hard to accurately gauge the sound quality of an mp3 player when listening to 128k quality mp3s on a busy bus. :thumbsup:

Which earphones/headphones do you use with your higher quality MP3 player? How do you encode your MP3s? Do you use a lossless format? Do you listen to music in busy, noisy environments?

What I'm trying to get at is there are a lot of other factors to consider when choosing an MP3 player. For most people it is functionality, battery life, ease of use etc not how great it sounds when used with a hundred quid pair of cans and sitting in your living room.
#23
I own several MP3 players and whilst the sound on my Sony and Samsung may well be pretty incredible, the winning feature on the ipod is the UI. This is a present for a relative who isn't going to be thrilled with the file structure on the others and will appreciate the easy to use functionality of the 16GB nano, I'll also give some Koss Porta Pro headphones to make the situation a bit better...

egg, fudging sactly

Its all about the file, headphones etc. Not just the player.

I choose the ipod because it is simple to use, integrates well with itunes and the rest of my music, and is also the most popular.

like taking a generator out strapped to your back, with a Roksan amp and some B&W speakers glued to your ears?

no MP3 player is "hi fi", and the truth is there isn't much between the lot of them. Even Cowon or Samsungs with good reps. The real weak point of iPod is the bundled headphones not the sound generated from the unit, which is fine for everyone. As other have said, the outside world with all its noise or running or not "hi fi" uses.

like others have said, iPods score on the iTunes+iPod music management which just makes life easy. Now that the iTunes tracks aren't DRM I don't even mind paying for tracks.

lastly, I can use the steering wheels controls in my car as many manufacturers have iPod connectivity.

There are many good and right reasons to use an iPod. Just like a mac, they are a tad more expensive, but then I don't care, I'd rather pay the money and have easy of use and an easy life.

i suspect the new ipods wont be that much more expensive than the current model. I don't need a camera either, seems pointless, but there maybe other enhancements that we will have to wait and see for.

I have a pair of Bose around ear headphones (good guess with the price btw, spot on, haha). But I use them for travelling to and from work on the london underground. Yet I still hear a clear difference in quality between Ipods and better quality brands (I don't use lossless, just 320Kb MP3).
But even then, you can pick up a Sammy 16GB for £20 less with good functionality and battery life.

I think you should be ignored purely for saying iTunes is a 'score'... I even know Ipod lovers that hate iTunes, it's probably the most hated part of the players.

Ah, you have Bose, this obviously sets you apart as a true audiophile. Here's the thing, this is a deal website and the ipod posted is significantly cheaper than is widely available so regardless of your personal preferences that makes it a hot deal. Now much in the way that the other folk here don't chip in with top tips on which way up you should hold your mop at work or how to fill in the little sheet that says you have done the hourly cleaning rota, how about not telling us what we should or should not like in our MP3 players?

If anything is more style over substance than Apple then we have "no highs, no lows - must be Bose". :p

Try going on avforums and saying that -you`ll be laughed off the site - if anything typifies how to market cheap tat as expensive goods then it`s Bose ...
#30
Can we get back onto the actual offer?

Voted Hot & rep added to OP.

None in Alperton (West London) but the friendly assistant looked it up on the system (confirmed the price as £99) and I got one from the large branch in the Hayes retail park.

So it should be national. No 16Gb nanos were on display but they had them in the store out the back, so worth checking at the electrics counter, or calling in advance.

Spot on, I'm a member of avforums and when I am in the right surroundings listen to my uncompressed music on a pair of Grados. I'm thinking of heading down to Sainsbury and grabbing another one of these 16GB models to use with my car kit...

Actually I went for bose as they are decently priced with pretty good sound quality, and keep out ambient sounds very well while not having active noise cancellation. True audiophiles would spend a lot more on headphone than £100, and I've never said I'm an audiophile, I simply don't see the point in spending more money for less quality.
The thing is, people are saying 'Oh, but teenagers listening to 128kb MP3's don't need the greatest sound quality'.
But why do they need to spend over the odds when you can buy a player with better sound quality and functionality for less? Especially as the average 'teenager' doesn't exactly have a fortune to spend these days...

Do you think I'm some sort of idiot that just went out and bought the headphones because of the name and advertising? Surely if that were the case, they'd be plugged into an ipod...
I spent weeks looking around and listening to MANY different brands and models (I took my player with me everywhere so I could judge them with my own music), and ended buying the Bose because they were simply the best value for my needs. And I don't mean I popped down to my local currys. I live 10 minutes away from Tottenham court road/Oxford street, and believe me, trawling through all the shops down there isn't fun. And my budget was the same as that of my MP3 player, £150 each (Player choice ended up being a 16GB Samsung P3, which I was over the moon with. With a bigger budget I would have gone for a Cowon S9).
Feel free to carry on sitting on AV forums and jugding everything based on other peoples reviews, but I'd rather go out and try things for myself. It's just a pity it's harder to do with most electronics, as if it were much easier for people to compare MP3 players by actually listening to them I think Apple would have such a big market share.


- If someone has a low budget, they should buy a cheaper but decent MP3 player and use the supplied headphones, or buy some cheap cans. So why would an ipod be the choice?
(and lets face it, pretty much every other brand is cheaper than apple, and many have better sound quality).

- If someone has a big budget they should buy an MP3 player that outputs good sound quality (i.e. not an ipod for a start), and buy a decent set of cans that will compliment the output of the player.


My conclusion: Ipods are for sheep and fanboys, and there's no logical reason for people to buy them other than because 'everyone esle has them', and 'they are cool'.
(yes, it's just my opinion, but whether you like it or not, I'm still entitled to it).

Finally, for anyone with £100 to spend on an MP3 player, and that doesn't 'Have to have' an ipod, should consider this instead -

jukkie ... you gotta admit.. this was a smashing price for the item
Apple refurb sell it for £109.

... and as Mr Hokey Cokey says ...

"thats what its all about"

:)

I just phoned Sainsbury's customer careline to try and find one of these in the north-east. None to be had up here I'm afraid, though there are plenty in the stores in the south at the reduced price, seems to be lots of colours to choose from too.

There are plenty of reasons to buy an ipod and you don't have to be a fanboy or a sheep. The UI is very good. Better by far than any other mp3 player I have ever owned and I have a lot of them. My wife who has no interest in reading a manual can just pick it up and use it, my 5 years old can without anyone explaining it to her. Sure not all non-pods have bad UI although the good ones tend to ape the Ipod UI.

iTunes you can love or hate, there are ways to load music on to an iPod without it, there are even ways to use iTunes with a non-pod. I use it mainly because it handles podcast well in conjunction with an iPod.

The iPod has achieved its market position for a host of reasons putting it down to fashion and brainless brand loyalty is seriously over simplifying things.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but not all opinions are equal.
#37
This needs to be expired doesn't it? The receipt posted is from August, and they only sell the silver and black now for £135.

Hot, will check my local and see if they have any, they never normally do though :roll:
