Summary: It's been a while since an MP3 (or rather, ATRAC) player impressed us this much. Sony has nailed the small-form player and delivered everything you could hope for. Aside from the typically pointless SonicStage software, this is a master stroke
Pros: Long battery life; sleek looks; rugged build.
Cons: SonicStage software (though we felt substantially less suicidal over it than we have before).
