The Sony NW-E005 is a true featherweight – almost literally. The Sony NW-E005 weighs in at less than one ounce … one ounce … making it one of the lightest weighing media players on the market today. In other words, the Sony NW-E005 truly is perfect for traveling, the daily commute or for time out in the gym or at the fitness center. The Sony NW-E005 can store over 1,300 of a listener’s most favored tracks. The Sony NW-E005 has features that permit the uploading of music and tracks from a variety of sources onto the Sony NW-E005. (As a nice aside, the Sony NW-E005 can fit into your PC’s USB port very easily. You don’t need cords or cables.)

Navigation on the Sony NW-E005 surprisingly is easy given its small size. One would expect navigation to be an issue … but, it really is not. In addition, the built in FM tuner in the Sony NW-E005 delivers crisp audio, very little distortion and no real drift from station to station which can be a problem at times with some media players that include FM tuners. The Sony NW-E005 really does perform as well as the industry leaders in regard to its FM tuner reception and audio quality.

The Sony NW-E005 also gives you the technology to burn your own CDS, which is a welcome feature for many music aficionados. Finally, the Sony NW-E005 comes complete with a powerful batter that can provide up to twenty-eight hours of uninterrupted listening enjoyment on one full charge. Overall, when all is said and done, the Sony NW-E005 is a good, basic media player. It is good for a person who has little experience with media players. However, it is also a good choice for a person who is interested in a bit more advanced functionality in a media player.
