Super audiophile sound quality from a very stylish device

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I remember when i got this MP3 player for my birthday a few years ago! Back then it was 'the thing' and so i was so pleased! Due to the fact that technology has expanded what with all these different Ipods coming out i hadnt used the sony walkman for a few years but after a total clean out of my room- i re-discovered it and now use it even more than my Ipod!! This Sony Walkman is very stylish and sleek and can easily slide into your pocket.

Good choice in comparison to expensive Ipod

  • Excerpt: I bought this player after having a 4GB Ipod Nano, which broken and wanted something a bit better value for money. The Sony was about the same price (£160) and about 5 times the capacity of the latest Ipod at the time, so I thought I'd give it a shot. On first impressions, I felt that the Connect software it came with was fairly easy to use and easy to put music on the player.

  • Excerpt: I bought this new sony walkman after putting my last walkman in the washing machine. It was an updated model and initially both looked and seemed as much but unfortunately this walkman is let down by one or two things. Firstly the positives, the design is far better in my opinion than the design of iPods.

  • Excerpt: I bought one of these players about three (maybe four actually) years ago, and its still going strong. I think I paid 159.99 for it, it's the 20gb purple one. I bought it from Comet and took out the three year insurance on it, which actually paid off in the end as I will explain later. The player is quite heavy and bulky compared to the new ipods such as the ipod nano, I actually bought a 16gb nano a few weeks back and the size and weight difference is enormous.

This retro player is ideal for those not wanting to line Apple's pockets

  • Excerpt: This mp3 player boasts a wide range of options that are not available on your typical ipod. However, due to technical difficulties with the connect player, sonic stage must be used to load tracks. Whilst it suffices for getting music onto the player, a great number of the special features that attracted me to the player in the first place are unavailable with sonic stage.

a good piece of kit if you can live with the weight.

  • Excerpt: I've now owned the sony for about 6months. During this time it's been reliable and the battery still lasts 30hrs+. The screen in sunlight it can be hard to see the menu, actually in bright sunlight it's impossible. The sound quality is fine, the build quality it great, it's built like a tank and weights about the same too. I've dropped mine a few times and she it still going well. Sony has delivered another good product, a bit late in the market though.

Great player in general but the software can be an annoyance.

  • Excerpt: I got this as a birthday gift near the start of the year, back then I felt the price was a little steep but at the sametime reasonable because of the Sony nametag. Main reason I thought it was steep was because there was no colour screen just a basic LCD and the features were minimal and basic (Playlists, Shuffle, Repeat) although I feel most people wouldn't mind anything more than the basic features so it's not much of a disadvantage.

  • Excerpt: this walkman is intersting for me especially the price is good but the problem is that it is so big to make in the pocket that 's mean you should take a satchel with you in order to put it there but i like the color is nice and it remember me like a mobile what is good is that it is so different from the walkman it's seem like mobile. despite the heavier of the walkman it is good in use and to listen with great volume to songs and news.
