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. Someone said you can only view songs by Composer - which is rubbish. You CAN'T view songs by Composer. Someone said you need to convert each track to ATRAC one at a time, which is also rubbish.
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 back up to the 2nd start song again, thats the most annoying thing I have with this unit.
Summary: OK, I'LL ADMIT IT. THIS MP3 PLAYER LOOKS REALLY COOL (AND PLUS IT'S A WALKMAN.) BUT BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO BUY IT, THINK OF THESE POINTS: 1. THIS PARTICULAR WALKMAN MP3 PLAYER DOES NOT COME WITH A OUT LINE RECORDING FUNCTION. 2. MOST CD MANUFACTURERS (PARTICULARLY BMG) ARE NOW COPY-PROTECTING THEIR CDS, MEANING YOU CANNOT COPY THEM ONTO YOUR PC AND THEREBY, YOU CANNOT BURN THE MUSIC ONTO YOUR MP3 OR MINIDISC PLAYER. 3.
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. That unit was extremely small but was limited by the memory stick capacity. Add to the fact that memory sticks are not cheap and the unit was expensive.
