Sam, Swindon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
really easy and quick to put music on to, battery lasts for hours and the wheel on the side makes scrolling to find a track more comfortable than having to keep pressing a button. will also resist most knocks, even if the screen gets cracked and stops working the device itself is fine.
Bad points:
it doesnt like being connected to other computors than its own, and so has a tendancy to keep shutting down and not turning on. pressing the reset button solves this without wiping the info off, so really not a problem.
