I recently bought an itouch, so I want to sell my shuffle.
I bought it a year ago, it's still in good condition (except for a teensy tiny scratch on the outside metal clip, with the Apple logo). Earphones/metallic body in excellent condition.
This shuffle is really small and compact, perfect for when you're working out/being active. The 3rd gen doesn't have controls on the ipod itself; instead it has a control switch located on the earphone cord (see pic), plus voice over function; so you don't have to fumble around with buttons, just listen to the voice over and click the handy switch (i.e. 2 clicks if you want to skip a song, 3 clicks if you want to go back a song, 1 click to pause. Click + sign to increase volume, - sign to decrease. Hold down central click to 'scroll' through your playlists/albums/artists, and release when you hear the one you want (just listen to the voice over, which comes in a sexy default Stephen Hawkings voice. You can change the voice and language, so you can have all your playlists read to you via a sassy German, French, Swedish or Turkish accent (depends what you're into, really). I personally like the Stephen Hawkings one, but that's just me.
It took me a while to get used to the control switch (I'm a slow learner), but once you get into it, it's a breeze, and very convenient.
