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.
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...
Great Sound - Great Battery Life - Minimal Features
20 October 2004
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.
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.
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.
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
Excerpt: What pain in the backside my player has turned out to be. After a problem with my pc and a restore operation Sonicstage refused to work so i set about uninstalling and reinstalling- around 20 times just to get the darn thing to work.
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
Excerpt: I have read through the other reviews on this product and most of them give a very comprehensive asessment of this players strengths and weaknesses. 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...
