Summary: i got this mp3 player for my birthday 5 years ago and until recently it stoped working. the most durable electronic i have ever had. i've dropped it like a million times and stepped on it and washed it (by accident) and took it apart. it still worked. the down side is the software needed to put music into the device. sonic stage really sucks. overall i am happy with it.
Summary: There is no way for you to download music on to this player because the software that the company sends with it is outdated. My daughter was really looking forward to listening to her music on this player and there was no way I could download her music on to it. I had to run out to the store and buy another player so that she wouldn't be devastated. I got her this player because of her all "A" report card. She was so excited to get it.
Summary: I purchased a refurbished Sony Nework Walkman 1GB NW-E107 recently and it works perfectly and was in excellent condition. I have to admit that I am familiar with this unit and love the fact that it is powered by a single AAA battery that lasts about 60 to 70 hours of run time. I really like the fact that I can carry replacement batteries with me and I don't have to plug it in to a laptop to charge an internal battery. I found the item to be as advertised.
Great player...CAN transfer mp3s without using SonicStage

Summary: This player works great. I have owned it for a little over a year now and it has been going strong. I wanted to clear up a few misconceptions that older reviews seem to focus on...this player DOES NOT have to be used with Sonic Stage software...at some point, Sony included a download in their updates section that allows you to download an mp3 transfer program.
Awesome little player but something goes wrong 6 mos later

Summary: I love this little MP3 player from Sony!I have two of them. They are perfect for working out...BUT something majorly malfunctions after about 6 mos of use! When the player gets ready to go haywire, the battery will go dead- which seems to be an easy fix;I've replaced them successfully numerous times before, but this time when the battery is replaced, the player seems to lose its mind!
Player is great... but don't count on finding armband

Summary: I have loved the unit itself. I had a minor issue in which I had to send it off for warranty work a few months after the purchase. It has worked great & I have enjoyed the quality of the MP3 player itself. The problem is that after less than 2 years of it being out, it is no longer possible to find the armband to carry it in. I have looked all over the Sony website & called their Sales department. It is not available anywhere.
Summary: After some careful research comparing players, I decided this Sony was the right player for me because 1) I primarily want to add music from my CD collection, and this software, despite everyone's bellyaching, produces MUCH better sound than IPOD's. I earned my living as a music critic for svereal years, and the SONY sound is absolutely excellent. For classical music there's no comparison.
