The iPod Nano is an aging music player that's hurt by its outdated reliance on iTunes and lack of subscription music compatibility.
The Apple iPod Shuffle is an adorable way to take your favorite songs on the go, but sometimes it's too small for its own good.
We love almost everything about this beautifully designed player, but the battery life could be longer.
The second-generation Apple iPod Nano is like the successful offspring of an iPod Mini and a first-generation iPod Nano. It's small, stylish, user-friendly, and competitively priced--a great player all around and suitable for a variety of users.
The iPod nano 7th gen is a thin and light way to pack Hollywood hits into your pocket, but it's not as suited to the gym as the previous one.
Simple yet elegant navigation and a useful VoiceOver feature make the fourth-generation Apple iPod shuffle a great little device.
The Apple iPod nano 6th gen is a great product for rich people who use the gym. For everyone else, the iPod shuffle and iPod touch offer better value for money.
Apple has not only exceeded our expectations, it's exceeded ones we didn't even have. The iPod classic is a superb audio player with a huge wealth of well-integrated features and intuitive navigation. Our only real concern is that menus can be laggy. Apart from that, outstanding
For better or worse, the iPod touch is clearly the iPhone's baby brother. Like most products that roll out of Apple, the touch shows the love of committed designers, hardware engineers and usability experts. While it may not be the slam dunk we were hoping for, it is an unquestionably cool product that continues Apple's legacy of sleek, innovative design
120GB of storage and the addition of the Genius feature, makes up for the slightly reduced battery life over the previous model, reaffirming the iPod classic as our favourite portable audio player on record
Apple's third-generation iPod touch may lack a camera, but, offering faster performance than its predecessors and new features, like voice control, it remains the cream of the portable-media-player crop.

Apple's fifth-generation iPod nano is the best version yet, packing in even more features than the previous models, while retaining the intuitive functionality that's typical of the company's MP3 players. It's not perfect though, and there's little reason to upgrade from its predecessors unless you're dying to get a built-in video camera
Apple's latest iPod shuffle is extremely small and stylish, but its lack of a screen and fiddly controls make it tricky to use. As a result, we can't fully recommend it
A high-resolution screen and video calling just made the best better, but we'd recommend an iPhone 4 if you can afford it.
Not just an excellent media player — the addition of third-party apps makes the second-gen Touch the portable device to beat in a wide range of areas.
Get the affordable, sleek, and sexy 5G Apple iPod for its audio virtues. Although video looks great, poor video battery life and a relatively small screen hamper its appeal to video heads.
The Apple iPod Shuffle (3rd generation) is not bad as a budget player, but it has too many limitations for us to recommend it.
The iPod U2 certainly isn't for everyone, but its target audience (namely, U2 fans) will love it, and will pay the extra AU$50 for it.
