Summary: No problems with player while it worked. Screen went dead after 4 months. Sony labor warranty is abysmal - 90 days only. Repair charges exceed the cost of the player. So was the noise canceling worth the money - for 4 months only? I'd say - no...
Summary: I was looking for a little mp3 player for an overseas trip; so long battery life, enough memory space to keep me entertained and nice video capability were what I was looking for. This little guy had all that and more. It was in the running with Zune, iPod and the Walkman with an FM radio tuner. What sold me was battery life, screen size and that I never really listen to the radio. Since not many seem to have reviewed the video/picture viewer capabilities I will.
Excerpt: The Sony NWZ-A726 Walkman MP3 player series offers highquality music, video, photo, with EX-style earphones and, not least, a huge battery life. The contrary is that is not a cheap item, and it has not a FM radio, or voice recording.
Excerpt: Sony now stands besides Apple with its latest market launch the Sony Walkman NWZ. Sony has always been the ace producer of walkmans and this new and improved version will surely be loved by all the music freaks out there.
Summary: I purchased the NWZ-A728 thinking that I was getting an MP3 / video player. I already owned a Sansa 4GB mp3 player that I was happy with (overall) but it lacked any practical video playback features. The NWZ-A728 is slim, lightweight and sturdy. Its menu system is user-friendly and its sound quality is superb. Unfortunately, the NWZ-A728 is to video players what a McDonalds hamburger is to steak: technically it's beef but its definitely not a t-bone.
Summary: Even though I am older in years my spirit is young so I wanted an MP3 player that was easy to use and understand and I also wanted a little bit larger screen so I could see some of the Pod Casts I was looking forward to enjoying. This fits the bill. I have had no problems downloading my music (Rock if you need to know)and the Pod Casts I wanted to see. Best purchase I could have made.
Summary: I have experience with the ipod nano and the Sony nwz-800 series. I recently purchased the latest Sony NWZ-A726 4gb player and here are my thoughts about it: 1. the 'skin' of this player is noticably larger than the NWZ-800 series, with a 2.4 diag screen compared to the 2.0 screen on the 800. 2. to my ears, the sound of this player is similar to the NWZ-800 that I own, which is very impressive audio indeed. 3.
