Sony Walkman NW-A808 8 GB: An underrated gem from Sony
21 August 2013
Summary: I bought my walkman about 3 years ago - and it's still going very strong! I'm not keen on Apple products and we're a very Sony based household so this felt like a good tie-in with our existing products. Please note I am not a technical person so this is a very none-technical review - just my experience of the product! ~First impressions~ When I first got the Walkman I was really pleased. It's very small, discreet and lightweight.
Pros: Easy to use, good memory, good sound quality, long lasting
Summary: I was bought this 8GB Sony Walkman (in cherry red rather than black) by my boyfriend who is usually much better informed that myself! I was gutted to have lost my old MP3 Player which was a Creative ZEN. I am resolutely anti-apple because I believe you pay too much for the brand and it isn't easy to get fixed. I like the brand Sony and remember having a casette walkman the first time around! Great retro naming.
Sony Walkman NW-A808 8 GB: Sony mp3 player-one of the best
15 October 2010
Summary: Please note this is not a very technical review just my opinion of this mp3 player. I got this mp3 player because i wanted one with more memory than my previouse ipod nano which only had 1gb and got full far too quickly. I found this mp3 very easy to use from the first time i started to use it. It has a decent sized screen and a clear main menu where you can access music, playlists, photos, videos and settings. The buttons are really easy to use aswell.
Pros: Bright clear screen, excellent sound, easy to use
Summary: I purchased this mp3 player a couple of years ago, and I wouldn't swap it for an ipod! It's 8GB size is fine for the amount of music that I have, and I love the fact that you can plug it into any PC with Windows Media Player and synchronise your songs. It will play both WMA and mp3 files, and it's great that you're not stuck only being able to use ITunes. The player is small and neat, very slim.
Pros: Small but perfectly formed, can use WMP
Cons: Hold function doesn't work exactly as desired
Summary: i bought this unit from a local dealer, as display unit.. it's cheap and functional, along with superb musicality. i don't use it to watch movie or whatsoever... to me..it fit perfectly for my daily audio needs...
Summary: The Sony NW-A808 is Sony's first attempt at creating an "iPod killer". As you can see from the picture it is only about 0.7 mm thick and the screen is two inches diagonally. Navigation is pretty basic; it consists of a options button, a back button, four arrows and a play button: It may not be as quick to use as the iPod , but it has the advantage when you have large libraries of music, and you want to find something quickly.
Pros: Great sound quality, Good video quality and ease of use.
Cons: Nothing new to the Mp3/4 Market, Easily scratched screen and Dissapointing accompanying software.
Excerpt: "~~~~ Introduction ~~~~ Sony vs. IPod With the Apple IPod dominating the market the choice of which MP3 player has always been which iPod should you choose? Well now we have a refreshed Sony product entering the market to give the consumer some choice. Sony has at long last got licensing for MP3 on their range of products and it is this step that will allow them to become a serious contender. All they have to do is offer a player that has ...
Pros: MP3 playback,fantastic audio and video and easy to use
Summary: I only wish that I had bought the larger GB instead of the 2GB that I was talked into by the assistant... but nevertheless it is pure magic. My previous player was a 20GB Samsung quite good but larger and heavier. I am 80 years old and use it when I take the dogs for walkies... but have better headphones (Sennheiser PX100) since I don't like the ones with the product.
