Summary: This was one of the best music player's I've ever owned!!! The format which was A-trac allowed for more music to be saved on the 20 GB drive vs. MP3. The reason this product never reached its potential and blow iPod out the water was one the software used to download the music onto it wasn’t user...
Summary: this is not mp3 player, this is atrac3 player and you can load tracks with only sonicstage. good device, bad software. device is user friendly but sonicstage .....:( i really disapointed for buying this sony product just because of sonicstage and atrac3 format.
Summary: I usually swear by SONY products, but this time I'm extremelly disappointed. My husband gave me this mp3 player as a gift, paid over $400 when it first came out. The design is OK, but the SONICSTAGE software is horrible and buggie, like the other guy said - it freezes, crashes for no reason, the...
Great Sound - Great Battery Life - Minimal Features

Summary: This is a simple to use, great looking DAP with exceptional battery life. If you use Sony's proprietary format, ATRAC, at bitrates equal to or above 132K the sound is outstanding. I've read many of the reviews here and I wonder what player some of these people were using.
Horrible! Stay Away from Sony - Sonic Stage products

Summary: The Sonic Stage software is not user friendly. It is a huge pain to use! It sorts and arranges songs in some type of cryptic list. The player is hard to scroll through your songs; it arranges Artist where Album name should be. It's so time consuming to re-arrange manually.
Summary: Its a good player, durable I dropped it a couple of times while playing and it works just fine, the only problem I have with it is the shuffel, after like 10 songs or so it starts back up to the 2nd song of the shuffel and keeps doing it, even if you start with a different song, it cycles then ends...
Summary: This is a completely Beautiful device, it looks awesome, has long battery life, and since its made by sony... it seems like a no-brainer If you agree with this, you are mistaken, myself i thought this was a far supirior product to the ipod until i bought one.
Summary: Before I start, I would like to make a few things clear. I have owned (or at least used) the following players: iPod (4th, 5th gen, mini, nano), nw-hd5, archos gmini xs200, creative muvo n200, the creative zen sleek, and of course, the nw-hd1.
Summary: I use these user reviews for so much stuff, that its about time I wrote one as well. The Sony NW-HD1 is just okay. Sonic Stage is just acceptable. It allows me to transfer files, but there is no song number count and make sure you don't try to get fancy with it.
