small, simple and very "soundable"

  • Excerpt: This is one of the best mp3 players in the world. For such a small thing, with "only" 2MB memory, it sure produces lots of fun. I don't need to prioritize my song list - all 300 hundred of my favorite songs are there, safe and sound. And I say that because it got into some rough situations during my college years. By that I mean accidental falling and some water being spilled on it.

This is a fantastic player if you do not primarily use the video function

  • Excerpt: When looking at the Sony NW-A805, you can't help but wonder how all the features are fitted into a player that is only 1 centimetres thick. One of the compromise of having such a thin player would be the quality of the display screen. The player has a good menu structure that is designed well, along with sensitive controls, this player is undoubtedly user friendly.

Great mp3/4 player allowing much space for music and some videos

  • Excerpt: After never really being an ipod fan I thought I would go down the Walkman route. I was very pleased with my purchase and still use it to this day to listen to music and podcasts on the move. I find the menus easy to navigate and find it great to be able to upload photos and video on such a small memory device. I have got a huge grumble though, the software supplied is appalling, and I mean appalling.

  • Excerpt: Okay! Okay! Okay! I was fed up with my Sony Walman (W550i) phone after a year as i felt it outdated and very bulky. I discussed with my friends whether i would get a sony handicam or a smart mp3 player capable of playing mpeg4 videos. Eventually my friends said that mp4 would be much useful and cool than a handicam. They said that you are not gonna capture movies whole day but would listen music instead.

Sony Walkman - small AND perfectly formed

annaroos1, Ciao
29 September 2007
  • Excerpt: After my iPod mini finally gave up after a year or so of misbehaving I was suffering going to the gym without an mp3. As my birthday was coming up I had started spreading the word (well, I had told bf) about what type of mp3 I would like just in case somebody would consider buying me one. The most important aspect was that it was NOT another iPod as I, and everybody I know who's had one, had had so many problems with it.
  • Pros: Small, stylish and easy to use
  • Cons: No case available

Sony's answer to the ipod

eddierog, Ciao
29 July 2007
  • Excerpt: A great alternative to the ipod. This plays video clips, music and you can view your photo's also. Playback is great even on the small 2" screen. The menu's are straight forward using the 4 way rocker button. The headphones supplied are also very good, EX type for superior sound quality. It uses a lithiom ion battery. Estimated Atrac playback is 30 hours and video playback 8 hours. It comes in 2GB 4GB and 8GB versions with 3 colours available.
  • Pros: Video playback, supplied headphones
  • Cons: Small screen, no case

User Review

  • Summary: In conclusion i strongly recommend for people NOT to buy this product as it is a complete waste of money! and is such a long process in trying to get the little amount of songs onto it. You are much better off with any other mp3 player other than this one. It is USELESS. I advise you to save your time and money!!
  • Pros: It has a nice desin but that is all i can comment on for the strengths as i cannot seem to find any others with this mp3 player.
  • Cons: well where do i start, firstly it is very difficult uploading music onto it. I tried various differnt songs and they all didnt work. I found that you cannot upload music from windows media player nor will it allow some music from your cds. This mp3 player seems to be very particulate on what music it allows. I had great trouble getting the music onto it. And ended up with hardly any songs on there as it wouldnt upload them. It also takes a very long time for any songs...

O produto que comprei não é original

RICARDOFUM, MercadoLibre
17 May 2013
  • Summary: O produto não e original, o vendedor agiu de má fé na minha opinião e enviou um produto totalmente diferente do anunciado, fica dificil de qualificar positivamente este tipo de vendedor, realmente fui precipitado e tive azar em adquirir um produto de PÉSSIMA QUALIDADE, fica um alerta para todos que quiserem comprar um aparelho de qualidade mas que podem ser enganados por pessoas que agem de má fé.
