8 here as well, however, I only ever owned 2 at a time. The upgrade bug just hits hard.

B&W Click Wheel, but the battery's starting to go...tempted to grab a new iPod instead of bothering with the battery replacement. Considering that a Shuffle's almost as expensive as a new battery...

Uh, oh, maybe I'll have to change my answer to a pending 2...

Why is there no 'None' option? Am I being discriminated against? iPodism? Seriously, none. I don't need one, though I'd get a Shuffle for morning walks if they halved the price.

Just wondering...why have more than one at a time? Has the sound drastically improved or something? Or is it just gadget-mania?

3... but only 2 at a time... my first ipod (which is almost full) was my 60gb ipod photo... then i bought the 4gb black ipod nano when it was released (the first generation nano)... then sold that the day the brushed aluminum ones were released and got a 4gb silver

I think I'm gonna sell my 60gb ipod photo in a couple weeks and get an 80gb video ipod, and i'm contemplating getting a shuffle, but i dunno... while it's awesome, i'm not really sure i want an ipod without a display :/

Wow. After they replaced my first generation iPod for the third time, I started thinking that maybe I should upgrade. So far the original flash 4gig Nano has been taking a lickin' and is still tickin'...its probably the best gadget I've ever owned.

I've owned 4 iPods. I had a 10GB 2nd generation that ended up with an old girlfriend. The rest that I am in possession of are a 40GB 4th Gen, a 1GB 1st Gen Nano, and a 512MB 1st Gen Shuffle.

I would buy gas for my car, if they halved the price.

Two thus far, what with my recent purchase of a 1G Shuffle. I will be trading up for a video iPod if it lives up to expectations, as I'm just now getting into the whole portable music video/DVD rip love.

I enjoy the iPod and mine has definitely worn its money worth and held up quite brilliantly (even after I dropped it in a slush puddle back in December, where it sat in the rain for 8 hours). I've used my 5G at least an two hours a day every day since I bought it 1 year ago. My biggest problem is that I keep killing my headphones.

My 3rd gen 20GB iPod is still serving me well after almost 2 and a half years (July 04). I'm planning to get a new iPod along with a MBP early next year.
