Summary: We need hardly add that the Sony Walkman NWZ-A818 is a player of rare beauty with quality Walkman-branded earphones adding to the appeal. Its black brushed metal is less shiny than its predecessors and we wish Sony had sorted out somewhere other than round the back for the Hold button; other than that, it's hard to fault.
Pros: Superb display with clear and crisp images, good quality earphones
Excerpt: Sony managed to impress us with the video quality of the first video-enabled portable music player it launched almost six months ago . Now the NWZ-A810s (also known as the A series), which range from 2GB to 8GB in capacity and include this model – the Sony Walkman NWZ-A818 – are equally impressive, but don't really add much to the mix.
