Sony Walkman NW A3000 MP3 Player

Lu, REVIEW STREAM
16 February 2006
  • 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. At the time the A3000 was probably seen as the biggest rival to the iPod crown and whilst it was nowhere near as established I chose it because of the build quality and the anticipation of it being a typical Sony product: exciting, pleasing on the eye and loaded with features.

  • 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

  • Excerpt: "Sound and quality of the player itself is really really good and it is really easy to use the only thing that lets it down a lot is the software, which is very very difficult to use and not as easy as itunes. I had difficulties at first in installing the software onto my pc must of installed it about 5 times before it workd. When uploading music to the player it freezes alot and then you have to quit the software with the worry of getting rid of all ...
  • Pros: Better battery life, really good sound, looks good,
  • Cons: Difficult software, support is not good at all, price

12 September 2006
  • Excerpt: "...may have read elsewhere the sony connect player is the worst of its kind, its the most unstable program i have ever used. It freezes, crashes, deletes things, changes things, wipes youre player and worst case scenario has corrupted the hdd on the mp3 player itself. I used to have to leave it synchronising overnight if i wanted any chance of some music on there. If your techy, then you know a piece of software like this shouldnt be running at ...
  • Pros: Looks nice, Good Battery Life, Great Sound
  • Cons: No colour, Worst software ever, big

  • Excerpt: "...computer is to close the Sony software down - it's that bad!! Loading songs from your computer takes forever and the interface is dreadful. The bottom line is having purchased this product for my daughter for Christmas I wish I'd bought another trendy player like an ipod instead. Quality sound outweighed by the dreadful software. ...
  • Pros: Nice player, good sound
  • Cons: Horrible horrible software

  • Excerpt: "...piece of electronic JUNK that Sony have 'unveiled' to it's consumers. Thank you to previous posters on your 'feelings' of the nwa-3000. My husband bought me the ultraviolet player for my birthday. I can't tell you how disappointed I am with it, in fact, am on the verge of returning it to the shop. At £200, it's NOT WORTH THE MONEY and it's definately worth considering an alternative player. We are pc literate - we can't even get by the easy peezy ...
  • Pros: Looks/Design

  • Summary: Die Bedienung des Walkmans selbst ist sehr einfach und sehr durchdacht. Man kann seine Lieder mit Sternen bewerten und den kompletten Festplatteninhalt entweder nach Genre, Alben, Veröffentlichszeitraum, Stern-Bewertung etc abspielen lassen. Die Bedienung erfolgt über die vier Richtungspfeile und den Play-Button.

  • Summary: Im November 2005 war ich auf der Suche, nach einem Nachfolge Walkman für meinen alten Sony MZ-NH1 (Minidisc), und suchte nach einem Festplatten MP3-Player. Nach einiger Zeit hatte ich meine Favoriten, unter anderem halt auch den NW-A3000S von Sony, der damals grade neu raus kam.

  • Summary: Hallöle, dieser Erfahrungsbericht sollte eigentlich mein erster werden. Leider wurde ich beim abschicken des Berichts, mit +500 Wörtern, ausgeloggt, und hatte auch keine Kopie gemacht. Nun habe ich mich aufgerafft einen neuen Bericht über den Walkman NW-A3000S zu schreiben. Legen wir los. Im November 2005 war ich auf der Suche, nach einem Nachfolge Walkman für meinen alten Sony MZ-NH1 (Minidisc), und suchte nach einem Festplatten MP3-Player.
  • Pros: Sound, Bedienung, Design
