Horrible! Stay Away from Sony - Sonic Stage products

BigFish "BigFish", Amazon
27 June 2006
  • 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. Occasionally the sound goes. Song is still playing; you can see the timer still counting, but no sound. Worst thing about this is SonicStage. It converts your songs to useless format.

Here's why: Terrible software: Read the review prior to mine. When you first get a hefty mp3 player like this you cannot help being a little happy. At first you live with the small problems but eventually they are just too annoying.

Hardware small and long battery life but software sucks

Kenneth Teu, Amazon
10 April 2005
  • Summary: I just bought NW-HD1 for my dad and he is a 67 year old chinese man who loves to hear his chinese music. Even though he loves the machine for it's size but he can't read what is being played because the stupid machine will not support Chinese characters. Prior to the purchase of the NW-HD1, I have other mp3 players (IPOD and Rio) that display chinese characters and I never suspected that the NW-HD1 would not have the same function being Sony a big Asian electronic...
