Summary: This MP-3 player is one of the best ever made and where it shines is in the sound, your iPOD's don't give you the sound like these Sony's do. This is what's important 'THE SOUND'. I really wish Sony would bring these MP-3 players back into production, but alas.
the greatest mp3 player...ever. yes, even more so than ipod

Summary: Well, I was (and still am I guess) an IPOD fan and owned an 80 gb IPOD classic. I loved it to death for the two years I had it but it was recently stolen from me. I simply couldn't afford another IPOD of that size (it was an xmas present so I never spent a cent the first time around) so I started...
Summary: The Sony 16-Gig Walkman Stereo MP3 Player is truly a super product. The device holds lots of music and the ear buds that come with it have high quality sound. So the whole unit gives superior output as well as having decent capacity - e.g. holds up to 4000 music files.
Summary: Great MP3. Wanted something simple to use and to download tons of CDs. All the gadgets needed were easily obtained to make it an even better experience. Am amazed at how much material this player holds, easy to use controls, very nice playback. Recommend this player to anyone not wanting an ipod.
Summary: OK! First and formost for me. I had no problems drop and dragging folders from my PC to this unit. Get this! My folders showed up as one of the choices in the menu besides artist, album, etc....The sound! Well! The earbuds that come with the unit are very good.
Summary: First of all, I want an MP3 player to play music and do it well. Anything else, (video, pictures, etc) is a bonus. This player is absolutely the audiophile's MP3 player. The audio is simply the best.
Summary: I previously owned a 4gb Sony player, but found I needed more space. I really liked the 4gb, and decided to go with the 16gb. What a great player!! The sound that comes out of this player is exceptional, the earbuds don't fall out, and you have a lot of choices in customizing your music.
Summary: So, I heard the audio from this player at my friend's house. It was much clearer, and well defined than that of any iPod. I DO HAVE A QUESTION??? about the video conversion. If I use videora or another video to Mp4 converter, what resolution do I need to set it to?
Summary: I had the 8GB and just updated to the 16 GB.....out of the box just like the the 8GB this unit is hands down the best sounding MP3 player on the market today....can you say blows away Ipod? Easy to navigate, great looking screen, simple and light but not too small.
Summary: I have Rio karma and it has been going strong for 5 years now. However i was in market for a player that would replace this awesome player. So i reviewed Ipod touch, Creative Zen, Cowon D2 , Iaudio and Sony A729.
