Need an answer guys,
No, and since it has the same amount of ram as the 4th gen iPod touch, and yet does not have the Retina display to soak up that ram, it is actually one of the fastest iPods out there.
No complaints here. I use my 3rd gen 64G every day and it still runs fine.
Nah, it's still a very useful device.
I gifted my old third-gen iPod touch to my nephew; he's quite happy with it.
One thing to note is that the third-gen iPod touch only came out in 32 and 64-gb sizes; the 8 GB model sold at the time was just the second generation. Also, you most likely won't be able to run iOS 6 on it. If that's not an issue, go ahead.
I use my iPod Touch 3rd gen every day. It is the 64GB model and I've had it for over 2 years. It's still running strong, and as mentioned, without a retina display, it's also fast.
While I would recommend buying it, remember that you won't be able to update to iOS 6. The latest software you can install with be iOS 5. This 3rd generation doesn't have any cameras. And, you also can't use the Apple Digital AV Adapter to mirror whatever is on your iPod apps, presentations, websites to an HDTV or HDMI-compatible display. However, I use Airplay with my Apple TV and it works great.
If these aren't deal breakers, go for it!
Tell me about it. I had little problems with my 3rd Gen iPod Touch but upgraded to a 4th Gen iPod Touch for the Retina display which sucks with the limited amount of RAM with iOS 5.
Besides the battery life a little less.. I'm still using my 3G iPod Touch every day because it hold more than my iPhone and I can put all my Keynotes on it as well (save on lugging around an iPad).
I already own an iPod touch 3G (check my signature) and I just wanted some opinions because I disliked it but you guys have made me appreciate how good it is! Thanks guys!
I have a 2G and still use it every day. The 3G is better!
Obviously! Do you have the 2008 or 2009 iPod touch 2G? 2008 was the 2 and 64 gig versions while '09 was the 8 GB version.
does the 3g suck? no.
I always wondered why Apple did this. Can only guess to keep the price lowere. Glad the 4 gen didn't do this.
I use my 3g daily. Have it in an Otterbox Defender and take it everywhere with me. Use it at the gym to take my workouts in a Numers spreadsheet. It is awesome.
Still using my old iPod Touch 2G and I think it's great. The 3G would still be a great device.
IMO, it's not that different from the 4th. Its similar but just lacking the cameras and slimness. I personally prefer the new one but the 3rd gen definitely doesn't suck. If I were you, I'd personally buy the 4th gen or wait to see if apple release a newer model. The 3rd gen is likely to stop being able to upgrade its IOS before the 4th and therefore it will have less apps available for it as it won't be compatible with the updates.
Still using my 3rd gen iPod Touch
Bought my 3rd gen iPod Touch back in November 2009. Have used it almost every day since. It has never given me any trouble. It has been accidentally dropped on the floor a number of times (in its case) and not suffered any damage nor performance issues.
It is currently running iOS 5 and still performs as well as ever.
Battery life is still really good too. No complaints there.
Apps run smoothly, no crashes.
So to answer the question, no it doesn't suck.
However, I have been waiting for the right time to update my device and now with the release of the 5th gen I will be upgrading, as there are what I personally deem to be enough reasons to upgrade.
