    What is the oldest iPod you own that is still used on a [mostly] daily basis?

    I am using a 4G iPod Photo 60GB at work and in my truck every day.
    My wife still uses her 1G pink at her desk on most days.

    5G 60GB bought as soon as they came out. As I now have less than 500MB free, it may soon be replaced with a Classic 160GB.

    I'm still using my 3G 20GB. But the "enter" button hardly works anymore, thus making it the world's largest iPod Shuffle.

    At least I can still read the display with the songs that I'm fast forwarding through.

    3G 15GB is still going strong after almost 4 years. Battery is pretty much shot but I use it only at work in a dock from 7am-6pm. That's a lot of tunes in 4 years. :D

    BTW, I loves me some lighted buttons on the 3G.

    I still use my 30GB white iPod Photo. It still works fine because the first three years that I owned it, I rarely used it.

    3rd Gen 30GB....stays in the car.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: the 3rd gen iPod is the best traditional/classic style they ever made.

    I think the Touch may have finally surpassed it now though...

    2 - 1st Generation Shuffles

    My wife's 1gig Shuffle and my son's .5gig Shuffle are still working, though not used everyday anymore since they have both been replace with (her's) a 4gig pink nano and (his) an 8gig Touch.

    As an aside the .5gig went through the washer. Some of the buttons are sticky but it still works.

    512 first-gen shuffle. I've had two nanos since (one got passed on to my father; I sold the other and am now saving towards a Touch when the next generation comes out) but am back to the shuffle for now.

    Same here -- 3G 15GB. Battery's pretty good. I even did the settlement-approved test and it passed (or failed, if I had wanted to lie and get the gift certificate). Goes for a while except if I leave it sitting around for a couple days.

    I still use a 6gig iPod every day for an hour or so at the gym which I need to charge maybe once a week. Only issue I have with it is the songs I've downloaded from iTunes dont play sometimes unless I get the upgrades via iTunes.
