Summary: The Sony NWZ-A810 offers a fantastic display, a sleek design and interface, and a stellar battery life--plus, it's one of the few MP3 players that sound great right out of the box. Users looking for the whole package (sans radio) will be pleased.
Pros: The Sony NWZ-A810 offers a slim design with a lovely, ample screen. It's also easy to use and comes with high-quality earphones. Audio quality is excellent, and there are plenty of sound enhancement options and two custom EQs. The player supports photo and video playback as well as subscription WMA files, and it has a fantastic battery life.
Cons: Even with the included extender, the Sony NWZ-A810's earphone cable is very short. The placement of the hold button on the back of the player is neither convenient nor ergonomic. There's no FM tuner, voice recorder, or memory expansion slot.
Summary: This 2GB A Series player is the latest version of the Walkman (cling on to that seminal product name, Sony). And accompanying its birth is the sweet stench of botched software death. In the NWZ-A815 and all new Sony Walkman players you'll find the bearable Windows Media Player 11, not the unbearable SonicStage – and, as of now, Sony's Connect music store is on its way out. Rubbish. Bad. Goodbye to.
Excerpt: Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Sony NWZ-A810 is its performance. Not only is the battery life of 35.3 hours for audio and 8 hours (rated) for video exceptional, but the processor speed is snappy and photos and videos look very good on the bright color screen, with nice detail and excellent color saturation.
Conclusion: Il Sony NWZ-A815 è un lettore di buona qualità ma dotato di una memoria interna abbastanza scarsa, appena 2 GB. Dispone, però, di varie un design attraente, una buona durata della batteria, la possibilità di visualizzare foto e riprodurre filmati e di varie tecnologie per l’ottimizzazione dell’audio. Manca, invece, la radio.
Pros: Riproduttore di filmati video; Visualizzatore di foto
Conclusion: Après avoir essuyé de multiples reproches sur son format propriétaire et son logiciel de transfert, Sony jette tout cela aux orties pour sortir deux vrais baladeurs. Le NWZ-A815 est l'un d'eux.
