Summary: I was lucky to find this 5+ year old player in brand new condition. I wanted it because all of my music is on the sony sonic stage application and this is an exact replacement for the one I have been using since 2005. I like this player because it is very easy to carry, being the size of a bic lighter. It is very easy and straight forward to use the sonic stage stage software for loading it with music. And it is one of the few that works with the sony software.
