Summary: This review of the Sony NW-E505-507 will provide, I hope, the strengths and weaknesses of this MP3 player. Let's start with strengths: 1. Well built feels solid with its metal back and thick plastic components. 2. Small size makes it handy to carry around in your hand or pocket. 3.
Summary: + battery life RULES on this baby + design is awesome + integrated FM tuner: sweet + Display is awesome (just not in the sun) - software is SLOW - podcasts don't work, unless you convert them (PAIN) - files from questionable origin also need to be converted Ok, so it's somewhat of a pain sometimes...
Summary: I plugged it in the PC as soon as I got it and it immediately reconized it, I thought hey this is going to be great. Using RealPlayer I dragged and dropped a few dozen songs, and, it wudnt play them.
Summary: I bought this player several months ago and am very happy with it. Pros: Small (think bic lighter), nice display, fm tuner, great battery life, fast charge time, easy to use with one hand while working out.
Summary: When I first saw this product, online at the (...) website, I was impressed by its compact, sleek design - especially that the screen cannot be seen unless it is displaying the track - and many features. As well as an mp3 player and FM radio, it can be used as a memory stick.
Summary: "Reviews" are meant to "review" the product. It's not a place to advertise another product. I feel there's a need to introduce myself before I review this product.

Summary: It is a well established truism that Sony's primary operating software for their mp3 players is dreadful. However, they have had the foresight to make available a drag-n-drop "mp3 Manager" that is ingenious in its utter simplicity.
Summary: For every one of you who is looking for a way to transfer MP3 files directly to this player (or any other newer NW-EXXX models) follow the link below and download Sony MP3 file manager V2.0: [...] You need to install the drivers first so that the Windows would recognize the device.

Summary: I waited forever for this DAP to be released here in the US. I finally got it with a $150 gift card and sony card bonus points... so I paid a whopping $12.57 for it. If I did not get it so cheap, I would probably take it back... but this is a conditional statement...
