1GB Apple iPod Shuffle
November 11, 2005

For the last few years Apple's hard drive based iPods have been the must have for anyone looking for an MP3 player. From the beginning they were widely regarded for their excellent sonic abilities, but more importantly for their intuitive operation.


Recently, as flash media prices began to fall, Apple saw an opportunity to add to their venerable line of players with flash memory based models. Today we are reviewing one of these flash devices, the iPod Shuffle, provided to Bigbruin.com by Geeks.com. The Shuffle is available in two models; one with a capacity of 512MB (120 songs) and the tested unit which has a capacity of 1GB (240 songs).

The Shuffle may no longer be the latest product in the iPod line up, but as new models such as the iPod Nano and iPod Video have been rolled out, the Shuffle has gained a new appeal. The features and performance are still the same as when the Shuffle was launched, but now it sports a more wallet friendly price that makes it worth a second look.
