  • Excerpt: As a great believer in the superiority of Sony products I bought the Sony NW A3000 MP3 player within 2 weeks of it being released in the UK at a cost of £179.

Plays music, like a handy mp3 player, but this ain't an iPod.

  • Excerpt: I inherited this mp3 player two years ago, after my Creative Zen decided to break. My sister had just gotten an iPod, and had no need for it any more. It is flawed, but has served me well all the same. People are constantly asking if it's some kind of newfangled smartphone, given that it looks nothing like the iPods that everyone rocks these days.

Lets the good name of Sony down

  • Excerpt: I bought this product back in November 2005 and had stop using it within a year although this was mostly down to the software rather than the actual unit. Firstly though, to start with the aesthetic side of things. The unit looked fantastic and very original. You can barely tell that there is a screen there until you turn it on and the display comes up and looks about as good as anything with a one colour display can look.
  • Pros: Looks great, sound quality
  • Cons: Only buy if you're nocturnal, the worst software in history !

A MP3 player bargain - highly recommended.

  • Excerpt: I have good memories of this MP3 player. Prior to owning it I used an in-car MD player , I was getting a little tired of constantly having to swap disks and this device (2006) was the best answer. I was blown away with the ability to store my entire music collection on one device !, this made for some much more enjoyable car journeys and allowed me to get rid of my MD player. The unit itself is a very solid item , with a metal back and futuristic appearance.
  • Pros: Reliability

A bit outdated now, however still a decent purchase!

  • Excerpt: Had the NWA 3000 a few years now, and still use it from time to time, although my phone has now took over as my main mp3 player. At the time of purchase i didn't think there was a better or cooler looking mp3 player on the market. The design is original indeed, the player has the misleading appearance of having no screen only for you to turn it on and see that there is in fact a low quality (pixel-ated) screen afterall.

An okay MP3 player....

  • Excerpt: For the most part, this MP3 player from Sony has generally gotten good reviews and that is good because this is a neat little player for those who do not wish to purchase an Ipod or similar machine for whatever their reasons but be warned this MP3 player is not without its faults mostly relkated to its software! On the whole, it is small, reasonably compact and very asthetically pleasing to the eye.

  • Excerpt: I bought this mp3 player a year or so ago, and it is still going strong. Although its default on computer player isn't the best, the device itself is pretty durable, and is yet to experience any major problems. Its hard-drive space is ample for most users, and its display is particularly pleasing in the dark. On bright days however, its display can prove to be a bit difficult, though playing quality is never an issue.

Audiophile sound

  • Excerpt: The Sony Walkman NW-A3000 was my first ever MP3 player, as such I had nothing to compare it to. I found it very hard wearing, easy to use and very stylish. The best points about the player are mostly the quality and style that Sony deliver in terms of the build and look of the device. Also the sound quality is superb, it really is. Now for the negatives, and there is a whole lot of them. The screen is not colour, its a simple one colour text display.
  • Pros: good sound quality, long battery life
  • Cons: poor software, lack of features, dissapointing screen
