An easy way to record video on my iPod Nano (5th generation). That is how I would describe the Griffin Tribot in a simple and concise sentence. Personally, I find the Tribot as a great product, but seems a bit luxurious from the price of $29.99 at first glance. The Tribot is a simple product, a stand and a case for the iPod – which has proved to be very rugged. Before I get into more in-depth detail, lets look at the breakdown.

Continued Evaluation

An aspect that is a detriment for the Tribot is that they are other products that are cheaper and do the same thing. Also, though the iPod Nano (5th generation) is a great device, it does not have the same quality like a Flip Mino HD — which we use to capture video here at The Real Mac Additionally, there are not many uses for the Tribot unless you are a periodic movie-watching traveler — the Tribot is extremely light. Final thoughts: If you are willing to spend the money for the Tribot, it will do well.
