Summary: I've just bought a 8GB black one of these neat little players. I have 3 other Sony MP3 players because I think Sony make MP3 toys for grown-ups who aren't into massive accessory purchasing and are after quality with good, enduring funtionality.
Pros: Long battery life, superb sound and colour repro - a player for grown-ups
Cons: Headphone socket on the base - makes rubbish of the silly plastic cradle!
A long lasting product which does the job very well

Excerpt: 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.
This is a great MP3 player if you don't use shuffle much, otherwise I'd choose again.

Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: So it's been a couple of years since this little mp3 hit the shelves. And now what can I say? I still value it a lot. Yes technology has moved on but really, if you're looking to buy a cheap mp3 as a Christmas present then this could be for you. It's small, and this can be a good or a bad thing.
Excerpt: 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.
If you're looking for a budget mp3 player - forget the nano, go for this!

Excerpt: I've had this for a couple years now and has only recently been replaced by my iPod Touch. This is much better than the iPod nano in my opinion and if you're on a tight budget then this definitely worth looking at. It comes in white, pink and black (mine's black) which looks very sleek and stylish.
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...
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: Maybe not that great compared to an iPod. It puts out much lower volume than the iPod and It has an annoying feature of putting the songs in some albums in alphabetical order. I wasn't thrilled with the earphones, but then I don't like earbuds generally, so I may not be the best critic on that...
Excerpt: For those who want to upgrade from the likes of ipod shuffle, this is definitely a good product to consider. Obvious advantage is a simple and user friendly interface which displays the information of the songs that you are listening to.
