Sony NW-A808

  • 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!

  • 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.

A great starter mp3

  • 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.

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  • Excerpt: I've had this for a couple years now and has only recently been replaced by my iPod Touch.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.

  • 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.

  • Pros: Small, light and great battery life .
  • Cons: The hold button is easily switched off .

Sleek and sensible yet let down by software and lack of new features.

  • Excerpt: 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...

  • 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.
