  • 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

27 August 2008
  • 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,
  • Cons: terrible program

Still An Excellent Player On The Market

  • 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 .
  • Cons: Software

  • 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

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 ...
  • Pros: Good Sound, Easy to use

  • Excerpt: "...am extremely pleased with the Sony NW-A3000 player and I would recommend it to others. First impression are important and this is a great looking piece of gadgetry. The colour is deep and doesnt scratch easily (still no visible marks except finger prints, even after over a year). The screen looks excellent and the information on the display is clear and bright (when indoors). The headphones fit snuggly into the ear and are inkeeping with the sleek ...
  • Pros: Looks Good, Good Sound, Large Memory, Sony (Reputable), Range of Features
  • Cons: Initially quiet, Can turn on in pocket, Sunlight makes text invisible, Software .

Amazing mp3 player let down by the software

23 March 2007
  • Excerpt: "...complete battery nut and the Sony NWA3000 had the best on the market. It hardly needs charging and it can either be plugged into the wall or into a USB port so wherever you are you can have it fully charged and ready to go. And it's not a brick, most of the players with big batteries are bulky and heavy and really clumsy looking. The NWA3000 is sleek. Plus, it is beautiful. Photographs do this mp3 player no justice. It is made from a translucent, ...
  • Pros: Beautiful, amazing battery life
  • Cons: Appalling software

  • Excerpt: "I have owned the NW-A3000 for over a year and on the whole it has been very good. The sound is excellent and it looks great. The player itself has been reliable and user friendly. I have still no-where near used all the memory capacity up and have dropped it a number of times which hasn't even damaged the outside. The battery lifespan is excellent and i've never had any skipping problems etc.. I have had a few problems with the software which isn't ...

Very good, but is not without it's flaws

mrvest, Ciao
22 February 2007
  • Excerpt: "Sony has truly created something great in this player, as in my opinion it blows the basic ipod out the water. Especially as these can now be bought for less than £130. I have always disliked ipods for many reasons (mostly unfounded!), and was frustrated that despite the ipods flaws (low battery life, flimsy and poor screen), no other company had seemed to really come up with anything that could compete with it. That is until this lil' gadget was ...
  • Pros: Superp sound quality
  • Cons: Sometimes crashes
