Great but LIMITED hardware wallet
The wallet itself is great, easy to setup and use.. the only problem I have with it is you're only limited to using 4 cryptocurrency wallets at a time if you want to setup a fifth wallet you'll have to remove one of the other 4. for example, say you have BTC, BCH, ETH, and ZEC and you wish to setup a fifth wallet for LTC, you can't! You have to remove one of the other wallets first.. that was not listed on either Ledger or 2DayDeliver websites.

Stains on item, see photo.
I heard multiple times that hard wallets should never be purchased from third party sellers because of the possibility that hard wallet integrity could be compromised by malware inserted by intermediaries. Malware that can steal crypto currency. I stupidly ignored this advice and bought my Nano from 2DayDeliver anyway.
My Ledger Nano S arrived today in a shrink wrapped box (as expected). Upon opening the box I discovered stains on the metal indicating that someone had handled it sometime after manufacturing. See the attached photo so you can see what I'm describing.
I feel compelled to write this review because the sole purpose of a hard wallet is to securely store crypto currency.

The build and quality of the Nano S is nice. The screen is welcoming but very limited as ...
Very pleased with Ledger. They do listen to their customers. The new firmware 1.2 features add some of the features missing in my previous review. The addition of Litecoin is welcoming, as well as the new Ledger Manager. Token and contract support for Ethereum, and some other small additions. I would like to see Monero or Dash support in the near future but already Ledger is paving the way for a hardware wallet to have and has been the first to include multi-crypto support on a single device. Great job Ledger! Keep it up.
I am a normal every day Jo, so my review of this item is my own opinion. I apologize for any grammar errors. It is a quick review and I am just winging it. The build and quality of the Nano S is nice. The screen is welcoming but very limited as far as in formations goes. The metal cover that swing open is a bit annoying as there is no way to lock it in place. It is pretty loose on there and you can bend it to have a stiffer movement, but over time it just loosens up again.
The bitcoin side of the Nano S UI is super easy to use. Your typical information is displayed. However unlike the Trezor there is no way to tag descriptions on transactions.
The ethereum side of the Nano S UI is very limited. Not very much information is displayed, very basic. Your are limited to one address only, a disappointment for sure.
At the time of this review both apps requires a desktop/laptop to use. No mobile apps as of yet. If you want to know your balance, the only way is to connect it to the chrome app. Disappointing because it has a display and no setting to show your balance. Even the box it came in show the Ledger with a balance on the picture?
The 4 digit PIN require is ok, but I prefer how Trezor does it with random pins. I think Ledger scrambled PIN could be set up like the Trezor in the near future.
The FIDO security works really well for my drop box and gmail. If your going to use both nano S and the Trezor, I recommend setting up the nano S first then the Trezor. For some reason I does not work the other way round.
Have said all that it does what it suppose to do. Hopefully future updates will address limitations mentioned. Currently I use the Ledger for my ETH holding and my Trezor for my BTC. Since I use my Trezor more often with bitcoin this works for my setup. Later on I throw the Nano S into a Secured Safe. It is decent and I do recommend it.

Love the product, quality, and company.
Excellent product and amazing customer service. I have full confidence and faith in this product and company. My lanyard came a little bit frayed so I contacted support. Within one hour the CEO shipped out a replacement from France for free. Try beating that. I am so impressed with the reduction of complexity the end user experiences I've written a blog post about it on my website. Use google since 2DayDeliver reviews won't allow me to include links. Fail for 2DayDeliver, A for Ledger.

Caveat emptor! If you are not particularly technology savvy, or need a fair amount of hand-holding, you might not want to proceed down the cryptocurrencies path. Ledger's customer support is horrible so, if you encounter challenges, you will need to figure out the solution yourself or through third party blogs. If you are persistent, and are willing to put in the additional effort to overcome technical challenges, then go ahead but proceed with caution. I've gone down this path and have come out successfully on the other side. That said, it's not for the faint of heart! One other piece of information you should know at time of configuration: make certain you know whether you need to configure for a Segwit or legacy address or you may encounter challenges moving your cryptos to and from exchanges/other locations. I particularly had this problem with Litecoin, discovering after-the-fact that Coinbase/GDAX rquire legacy address, not Segwit.

the support i have been given has been absolutely fantastic! i wasn't sure what to do about downloading a app in the beginning and was told how to do it. then i sent LTC from coinbase to my ledger and it didn't show up for 8 days! i finally called bitcoin solutions and he helped me reset the app over the phone. i was so happy i almost started to cry. i bought another ledger for less but the support was not there. i'm glad i bought this from bitcoin solutions. 5 thumbs up!

An absolute must
If you are looking to keep some crypto safe, COLD storage is an absolute must. IMHO there are only 2 choices. This and a Trezor. I have both and Both are great. I think I prefer the Trezor, but its also more expensive.

Price is very inflated right now but still worth it if you want maximum security with the ease that a device like this provides. Never put your trust in an exchange if you’re hodling long-term. Most of the larger altcoins are compatible with this device. A list is available on Ledger’s website.

Great hardware wallet!
This thing works great! I reset the device and was able to get my currency to show up again after that.

Great Cold Storage Wallet
Great tool. Don't lose your 26 passphrases that are generated on setup. If you forget your pin and passphrase you could lose your coin. This is cold storage. Take care.
