The 2nd Generation iPod Nano (Product Red 4 GB) was the first iPod that I have ever owned. Before I had a Creative Zen Micro which was ok at best. At first the iPod blew me away. Like all other Apple Products it is easy to use and setup and sync. The storage capacity is only 4GB, which is too little for me, but the size varies for each person. It is very durable, as I have dropped it multiple times and the most that happens is a small scratch. However, recently I have been having problems with the reliability on it because it will randomly freeze up and just not work. I have memorized the way to reset the iPod because I have had to do it so much. This, coupled with the storage capacity, is enough reason for me to upgrade to a new iPod Classic or iPod Nano 8GB. The Earbuds that come with it don't work for me because they will just fall out of my ears so I invested in the Apple In-Ear Earbuds. Overall the iPods as a whole will not beat you over the head with impressive features but they will look sleek and attractive, will be easy to use and for the most part are reliable and durable.
