Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. First, there's the question of design.
Excerpt: The battery liffe is 50 hours, which is quite good if your on the move, or on a train or on holiday. The player supports mp3 and also Atrac compression, which takes around two minutes to transfer about eleven songs to the player. I would suggest that you stick to an ipod, because they have bigger memory and you can do more with them. But if you want a simple mp3 player, then you may like this one.
Sony Walkman NW-E407 1 GB: One of the best sony players
13 October 2011
Summary: This review is about the Sony NW E407 Walkman. This is an mp3 player of the sony walkman series, which is not the newest, but I still think it needs to be reviewed by me. The mp3 player is offereing a very nice design and very good soundquality, which is better than later sony players. So let's get into the details of the mp3 player. General information: The Sony nw E407 looks similar to a lighter and has a great built quality.
Pros: Very good sound, great design, very good battery, solid
Summary: If you need a cheap and portable player look no more! Excellent for doing exercise as it is light and small. The 1GB is a bit annoying as it demands plugging into the computer regularly to change the music...unless your tastes are very restrictive. The battery is by far the most lasting one I have ever seen! A few minutes using the USB of a computer is enough for hours and hours of music!
Pros: Portability, battery life, style
Cons: limited memory, display not very bright and controls not intuitive
Summary: i have had this mp3 player for a few years now, and it is possibly the best small mp3 player i have ever owned. admittedly the storage capacity isnt the largest in the world, but then with the atrac facility to shrink the files down it can still hold approximately 30-35 albums, and even though this means they are stored at low (64kbps) quality they still get reproduced at a very good level.
Pros: battery life, ease of use, ingenious storage solution
Cons: memory size, cannot create playlists once mobile
Summary: I bought this mp3 player last week. It made me farily happy and contented until it occasionally turned it self off for no reason. The sound is excellent but i recommend to buy a new pair to get the full potential! i bought it a bigW for $229 (NO SALE!!
Summary: You do not need to use the supplied SonicStage software to transfer music onto the device. You can, with a little digging around, find software on sony's website that allows you to drag n' drop your music into the device. Its not very functional, but it easily beats SonicStage!!
