A long lasting product which does the job very well
21 August 2013
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. 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.
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. Small makes it so much easier to listen on the go, but at the same time how can you watch things on it?
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. 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.
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. 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.
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Excerpt: I've had this for a couple years now and has only recently been replaced by my iPod Touch.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. The supplied headphones are Sony in-ear and worked very well, producing high quality bass and treble which doesn't break up even at high volumes.
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. 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.
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: 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 score. However, it is cheap and it works fairly well for my needs. (I use it mostly when biking and exercising.
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. With a 8gb capacity, there are lots of songs that you can store in this little beauty. The software allows one to browse through all the songs stored in folders and/or playlists in alphabetical order.
Sony Walkman NW-A808 8GB is great value for money!

Excerpt: Great product, which is a little small for watching videos, but has more than enough space to put one or two movies on and hundreds of tracks. With its excellent battery life it's a brilliant product to make your long commute to work in the morning fly by! The menus are extremely easy to navigate and gives a range of ways to organise tracks.
