Frozen after 4 months

G. Thomas "GT", Amazon

  • Summary: Having bought a lot of Sansa products in the past I decided to try a Sony instead. Unfortunately my experience with this player has not been good. After using it occasionally for the first 3 months I finally decided to load it up and listen to it while working in the garage.

Had high hopes but got headaches instead

  • Summary: I decided to buy this unit for my 10-year-old son as his first MP3 player because I didn't want to dish out the big bucks for the IPOD not knowing how careful he would be with it. I love my IPOD Classic but they are pricey. Additionally, I've always been a fan of Sony electronics. No more..

  • Summary: This is my first ever MP3 puchase. I have over 1,000 cds and wanted to try an MP3 so I could listen to my favorite tunes on the disc golf course. Everything started great. From my computer, I could rip my cds onto this Sony with great ease.

  • Summary: I cant seem to find a working mp3 player these days. My samsung clip broke twice. So I thought Sony would be a quality product but within a week it was freezing on me. I hit the reset button, it would work for a couple of songs then freeze again. Even in radio mode it will just suddenly freeze.

  • Summary: I bought this MP3 player in the end of May of this year (09), and started using it right away. Loved it! I even got one each for my 2 daughters. Great sound, easy to use, etc. Fast forward to August. Three. Short. Months. (And of course, juuuust out of the 90 day warranty.

Lasted only 6 months

T. Lester, Amazon

  • Summary: Don't purchase this item if you want an operational MP3 for more than a few months. Without any damage to this Sony MP3 player (i.e. dropping it, bumping it, etc), the player just stopped working. It would not power up at all. When we contacted Sony online, they offered an exchange program for $29.
