  • 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. However, if the sun ...
  • Pros: Looks great, sound quality
  • Cons: Only buy if you're nocturnal, the worst software in history !

  • 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

  • Excerpt: "I got this MP3 player 2 years ago at Christmas time, for the main reason that i wanted something that looked better than the Ipod, and certainly for looks it betters the ipod. It has a crystal clear OLED (organic light emitting diode) which makes the sceen almost invisable when not in use. Due to its very shiny exterior i invested in a case for it and a screen protector that has kept in scratch free and still looks fantastic after almost 2 years ...
  • Pros: durable, looks great, great sound quality,

Still An Excellent Player On The Market

14 July 2008
  • Excerpt: "...the player through Sonicstage. A sony program. This can be fickilly at time but I find that it's very effective, definetly better than iTunes anyway. Unfortunatly for some, this player is quite large, so if you don't have very much pocket room then this may not be for you, which is a real shame. The final this I'll say is that even though the earphones you get with it are pretty good, I highly recommend that you buy new ones. You will get more ...
  • Pros: Holds more music than 30gig ipod .  Good sound .
  • Cons: Large size .  Sonicstage can be funny .

24 April 2008
  • Excerpt: "=== Advantages === The fist thing I have to say about this MP3 Player is that it is very durable. I have had my NW-A3000 for about 3 years now, I have dropped it on carpet, wood floors, stone/pavement many many times, had my keys crushed in to it making a crack on the from the large round button to the middle of the screen, and a dent on the form I don't know what and it still works just as well as when I got it, I'm sure I would of killed an iPod ...
  • Pros: Droped, bashed and crashed and still works fine .

  • Excerpt: "I must say on first appearances i thought this mp3 player just looked fabulous, it really was fantastic in your hands, its looks gave me pride when i held it, the silver band than surrounds it is like crome trim on a car, but also protects it. I'm 6ft tall and i've drop it on several occasions and the trim has protect the screen from a single scratch and never has it frozen or stopped working. After the looks to the important bit the music! due to ...

Sony Walkman NW-A3000 20 GB Violet

weekimmy, Ciao
5 January 2008
  • Excerpt: "...it was quite simple. Sony have now taken away this old method and produced a new way to sync your songs. This product over the years has had alot of competition from the ipod. Yes this is not video but it is capable of storing roughly about 10000+ songs depending on the size. Eventhough it has this amount it is still able to last its 35 hours battery life. Having it two years now it lasts about 15-20, but that is still very good. I know from my ...
  • Pros: Brillaint, Attractive, Durable
  • Cons: Heavy, software .

20 November 2007
  • Excerpt: "I use this every day in my car never had a problem, easy to use and the sound quality is good. Love the random play functions available as with a large music library you can let it play and you never know what may play next. Only downside was getting the Supplied PC software to work very well, have since looked on the internet and found Sonic Stage and this is much more user friendly. Also I have found the Battery life to be very good especially ...

15 September 2007
  • Excerpt: "The Sony walkman MP3 20 gb memory is a smart, stylish MP3 relatively easy to use and it can hold lots & lots of songs. It has very easy to use files and folders and even has a digital clock on the front. It is especially easy to use when updating from the sony website. You do have to be careful not to knock it as it can be temperamental and it is very easy to lose all your songs. The mirror finish is very unique. I found the menus etc, all very easy ...
  • Pros: Smart, stylish easy to use
  • Cons: weight slightly heavy/bulky
