Pros: Size, navigation, reliability, old school charm, perfect for stacking with a small amp.
Cons: Doesn't play many file types, not the best SQ without amplification.
I always loved the iPod Mini. Had a blue one 8 or 9 years ago, and was heartbroken when the disk drive failed. Delighted to find several flash-modded models on eBay recently, so decided to pick up a 32 GB version. Love the form factor, and the high capacity storage.
