Poorly advertized, old and incompatible with Windows 7; would not play library books,

Summary: I wanted a MP3 player for library audio books that are recorded on CDs. Furthermore, this player required a computer to download audio to it, and it was incompatible with the Windows 7 one that I have.
Summary: I got this for my husband and it has been the biggest headache, it will not play any of my husbands purchased mp3s. He has a huge collection and none of them work. It seems like it would be a great little player but is useless for mp3 purchased on sites other than Sony. Save yourself the trouble and move on, because this device is a waste of time. It is not an mp3 player, it is a Sony download player. What a disappointment!
Summary: I have the NW-107 and have for about 3-4 years. It is simple, easy to use, and the sound is great. The battery life is great. I go away on 10 day to 2 week vacations, and usually bring two extra batteries, and usually use the one that's in the unit, and part of another. The reason I need a new one is that this summer, as I floated along in the pool, I got the Mp3 wet somehow, not very wet, but just enough to effect it. The battery goes dead, even when it is off.
Summary: I don't know why people were annoyed with this MP3 player. It has simple instructions to follow, and only 6 steps to do everything. It was easy to intall the program for it, and it transferred my music to the program, which was awsome. It was really easy to transfer my music into it, and it lets you make your own playlists, then transfer them, which is wonderful.
Summary: I've had this little player for probably 2 years now, and it's always been a very easy to use, dependable and TOUGH little unit. Mine's been left in the car for a week at -40, it's been stuck inside a hot glove compartment for days, it's been dropped, thrown, covered in dirt, all sorts of abuse, and yet it still runs beautifully. one AAA battery can run for 50-70 hours, depending on brand. Can't get much better then that!
Summary: plastic casing looks so cheap, earphones looks generic, compared to ipods , quality is incomparable. sonic stage software, is hard to manage, worked fine with windows XP pro, but when updated the ver 3.0 that originally came with the player to ver 4.2 fialed to work had to go back to ver 3.0 and ver 3.0 doesn't work on windows XP mediacenter. Sound is decent enough but max volume is not loud enough.
Summary: First and most important, the battery life is NOT, repeat NOT, what it claims to be. The only reason I purchased this thing is because I figured I would save money with the extra long battery life when it came time to purchase batteries. Think again. Strike one. The sound quality is just plain bad. Most of the time there is an awful hissing noise in the background.
