p.s. happy bday america.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

Wasn't there a time when all the Wooters were complaining there were no iPods on Woot? And now listen to ya. There is no making you Wooters happy.

I'd be in for one if the price was a little better. I'd rather just spend $20 more and get the same thing from Apple with more color options and a MUCH longer warranty.

But...

... does it work with a..

...Mac?

Seriously, though... pretty good deal if you want a respiffied. Apple sells their own refurbs and an 8GB nano of the current (third) generation, refurbed, from Apple, will run you $149. So this may very well be a sweet deal if you're in the market for such a thing.

What is an iPod and how do they spawn? Three generations for the Nano family? Damn, they multiply quickly....

I'm fairly capable of viewing my nano's screen outside, unless I have sunglasses on (polarized lenses and whatnot).

Not for me... Last bought one last time and it had two scratches and was infected with a worm. The respiffied company stated that since the damage was 'cosmetic' and the device booted, I was SOL...

Better to buy from Apple.

I picked up one of these a couple of months ago from woot. its works great. except the USB cable it came with was faulty. it wouldn't connect to the computer right and the computer wouldn't recognize the iPod. went to the store and bought a wall charge for the ipod and it came with the USB cable attachment. so use that now. 20 bucks more but still cheaper than buying its off the shelf.

Does this 8GB nano come in pink? Maybe you can buy this one, then pull some super sneaky sneaks and exchange it at target or some used electronics store or whatever for a pink one. I don't know, i'm just sayin. I think people would want a pink one.

Want but rumor has a refresh of the lower end ipod lineup at the end of this month.

Is only rumor but that and the fact that other retailers seem to be blowing out their refurbs too...

90 day non apple warranty is a put off too - got a scratched up respiffied zune from woot too - gonna pass.

Leave me alone

Finally got the (also respiffed, also Woot) Sansa 8GB yesterday (don't ask where it got sent to!). 5/8th of the price or so and a better player. I have the 3rd gen nano and it is pretty carp not that it is a bad player, but it is not that good. Sound quality is OK, but it does not compare well with the better players (Cowon/Iaudio or Iriver for example). Clickwheel is really awful if you do sports, it does not respond to sweaty fingers. the clickwheel also dies very fast, after 7 months it often refuses to go back/forward so you have to use the menu to go through the playlist. Of course if you shuffle songs, well you just have to wait until the song is over...
Yes, the nano is really light, its LCD is good and its extensive support for playlists is useful. Just get Winamp to manage the damn thing, Itunes is total rubbish, in my 15years of PC experience this was the first program that has defeated me, I was not able to install its iteration 7.5 + and was so glad to remove it from my PC.
Would I trust a reFurby from Apple, not really, since the original is already quite weak, I don't think they will fare very well.
The Sansa e200 they had here is a much more solid build. granted it is heavier, but in this case it makes you feel safer about the original build of the product.

My 4th MP3 Player but something I can finally watch video on at work without getting caught. The old nano works but not too long before the battery is dead. Sorry for the 62,000 that lost jobs last month.

Refurbished iPod nano 8GB $149 (Black, Pink, Silver, Blue, Green) with a 1 year warranty

Dangit. I just received mine from the last wootoff for $5 more than this. BTW, there are no scratches on the one I got and it works perfectly.

Yep..I have to say Apple refurbs at apple.com have a better deal since it includes a one year warranty from the oem. I love woot and the sansa I got, but this is $$$$ and respiffied suxors when not oem.

Instead of selling one thing per night, they sell something until it sells out, then put another item up. The event is characterized by flashing yellow lights and a progress bar under the item picture, and it can go on for over a day. Some things can sell out it seconds, so "wooters" often become unproductive sloths (or even MORE unproductive) while staring at their computer screens for hours and hours on end, hitting refresh constantly

Having said that, I bought 4 things during the last woot off.

Yeah they spawn alright (redesign, very slight upgrades), just to get people to buy, buy, buy. When you buy this ipod... look to it being "obsolete" next month when Apple comes out with their new design with touchscreen technology. Are you sure you want to buy it?

You're mistaken... the 8GB version goes for $200 on store.apple.com, the 4GB is the one that is $150 and is only available in silver.

I just order 3.... eBay here I come!

EDIT:
My bad... I had no idea that there was a certified apple refurbed store. Still, I should make a few bucks on eBay.
