Not much static outside, quite a bit indoors. Overall pretty good, but I've noticed my battery life is halved if I use the radio exclusively. Probably due to the new buffering feature. Good feature, but it comes with a price. Can anyone else confirm the increased battery drain from using the radio?13" MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 4GB Ram, 320GB 7200 rpm HD
I've returned my new Nano today due to poor signal recption of all local stations. There is static / hiss on every frequency. I also own a SandDisc
MP3 / FM radio reciever which I used as my baseline. Bottom line the Apple
Nano I purchsed failed to match the SandDisc device. This is a big disappointment for me as I like the Apple features and design.
Have others experienced this issue? My current plan is wait for the next generation, or two, before jumping back into the fray.

For stations with a decent signal in my area the Nano works just fine. It does not do well pulling in distant stations which did not surprise me. Since I use the FM Radio 99% of the time listen to a low-level feed in my gym for television sound it works just fine for me.MacPro Dual Core 2.66 Ghz, MacBook Pro 15", iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.6), AEXs, Red 2G & 5G Nano, Red Shuffle, 160 GB Classic, White 60GB 5G, Apple TV
