Cons: Battery life, no apps
I dont reccomend this ipod.

I paid 50 and I'm sattisfied

Get the newer gen, anything below this is crap
I cant have fun in the app store, It only runs IOS 4.2.1, meaning I need a 3g^

Overall Great music player, Interface is great, better than my fuze, more fun and better organized

Battery life is awful, I could use it all day with the exception of brightness on low

If you pay 100 you are getting ripped off, I was told this ipod was recently purchased and was upset to see a 2g, but glad i only payed 50, my fuze was 70 and I dropped it many times until it broke, this ipod is very strong for me since I run with it.

Another, thing, I cant use apps from installous and it crashed while jailbroken,

I miss my 3g, It had a huge difference in quality

If you have 100 dollars, dont buy this, I know the 5g is expensive but it's a better deal
Pros: Good SQ for an iPod, Basically does everything anyone could want
Cons: Its made by Apple, So its overpriced (when it was new)
Overall I'm satisfied with my iTouch, its worked well for about 2 years now, Its been soaked with water and it managed to survive and dropped several times and hasn't broke which is really shocking cause Apples iDevices usually break quite easily but It does help to have it in a case and keep a screen protector on it.
 
The interface is typical Apple iOS, does the job fairly well, only complaint about it is no 3rd party apps.
 
SQ is actually pretty good for an iDevice, with sound check engaged and your favorite EQ it actually can reproduce digital audio just fine.
 
Only real complaint is the built in speaker is verrrry quiet its nearly pointless.
 
It is currently running iOS 4.2.1 and Jailbroken.

I own my 2 Gen since it came out and still use it daily. Switched back to IOS 3 because it runs better then IOS 4. It jailbroken and has the same features as IOS 5. Only thing is that it is a bit outdated. It can run every app and some apps don’t run well.

yeah I shoulda mentioned that, cause of the now outdated processor in it and lower MB RAM some apps can lag like the new FB, or just not work at all, and with it not being able to upgrade past iOS 4.2.1 you can't get certain apps from the app store, but oh well, I think if you have an iPod/iPhone that can't run iOS 5 you might as well just jailbreak
Pros: Friendly interface, easy to use, 3rd party potential
Cons: Battery life degrades over time, standard buds subpar, sound quality average
I purchased this with money saved over during the '09 winter. As with all Apple Products, iTunes is required in order to activate the product. This could be seen as a pro or con, depending on your preferences.
 
The iPhone operating system runs smoothly, and displays itself clearly and neatly to the user. It's ease of use allows those who have never used a touch screen device to quickly become accustomed to it. Applications are available from a vast amount of developers on the App store, and can quickly transform your device into a one-of-a-kind object. The option to "jailbreak" the device further increases its appeal.
 
I think that the device, however, is subpar in audio output. Compared to my other MP3 players, the bass lacks, and the treble can prove harsh when played loud. The ear-buds that come with the iPod are laughable, and should be used as a backup to your primary headgear. Battery life tends to decrease over time, so like other electronics, should only be charged when near dying.
 
Overall, the product is exceptional in both entertainment and style, but lets down on audio output.
