This was my very first iPod and to this day still my favorite iPod that Apple has ever made. This 3rd generation iPod was the only one to have a row of four touch buttons going across the center of the iPod which also glowed red when the backlight was turned on. In short, it looked great.

I actually still have mine. The battery is pretty dead nowadays, but every once in a while I will plug it in and power it up and surprisingly it still has all of the music I kept in it when I stopped using it. Sort of like a music time capsule for my life back then (I have an iPod classic which I do the same thing with).
