Great Sound - Great Battery Life - Minimal Features

Blodwyn "mmp64", Amazon
15 December 2006
  • 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.

Good player

  • 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: I don't think I am going to add much to the reviews written previously. However, having owned an iPod and this unit, I lean towars the Sony device. I admit however, that I am a bit biased. I previously owned a Sony Network Walkman MS-11. This was Sony's older memory stick media player.

Isn't it Shiny and Tiny?

  • Excerpt: Wow! Well, isn't it nice, shiny and tiny? But who has control over what music you listen to, SONY does thats who. I was so excited when I first bought it. Then when I went to attempt to download my music on to it, it became a hair pulling nightmare. The ATRAC is clunky and not user friendly.
  • Pros: Good sound quality
  • Cons: Too many to mention here

  • Excerpt: Battery life of the player is AMAZING and I have not found a player that beats it, it lasts upto around 25 hours (with major button pressing) if not more. It looks good & is fairly robust.
  • Pros: Battery life, looks, memory space, ease of use
  • Cons: Catagorization of songs, SonicStage software

  • Excerpt: When I first got this little player I was very pleased - I could finally move my huge mp3 collection onto a portable device which also had the ability to switch the output impedence to suit it as a hifi auxillary input. I have since changed my mind and am looking for something else.
  • Pros: big storgae
  • Cons: annoying fuctions  -  older models have mp3 issues

  • Pros: Compact, lots of storage
  • Cons: Sonicstage !

Stylish Sony

  • Excerpt: INTRO Ipod stand strong but why is this why do they have so much superiority, well it's because there isn't any body worthy of challenging them. But that's changed, oh yes. Introducing the Sony NW-HD1, the first worthy enough to challenge the mighty Ipod with its sleek titanium body and it's...
  • Pros: 30hr battery life, 13000 tracks and 20gigs hard drive
  • Cons: tracks must be converted to atrac3plus, not that easy to navigate

I think the overall consensus is that the lack of MP3 or WMA Playback on this player is a major downfall, especially as Sony devices have started...
