Summary: This Sony player is not a bad little mp3 player for music, though dont't expect good results for audiobooks/podcasts. It doesn't resume playback where you left off, so getting to the point you want in a long track is very frustrating.
Summary: It's nice, but... I use it mainly for mp3s of radio shows, and talks, and mp4s (like univerity lectures) from iTunes. For mp3s it seems fine. But, I've found way too many videos on iTunes (even mp4's) that it just won't play. If it played most of the iTunes mp4 videos I've tried, I'd rate it a 5.
Summary: I ended up selling this player shortly after I bought it because I was not at all impressed by the sound quality, which is a bit surprising for Sony. Then again, I'm comparing it to an iRiver H300 which is superior IMO.
Great feel and ease of use - but it has a hardware and a software problem.

Summary: This version of their walkman was well thought out, and is a great older mp3 player that still holds up in terms of ease of use, even in the touch screen era. Two issues - one is that the connector cable for this is not a standard USB to USB-mini (or micro) - it's proprietary - so if you lose the...
Summary: I've been purchasing Sony mp3 players for years based on their stellar sound quality and battery life...This was the first one I had to return. After two years - and honestly, not the best care on my part - my player (NWZ-S618FBLK) finally gave out on me.
Summary: I will preface by saying that as a Sony, of course it sounds good. In my experience so far over the years, my Sony cassette Walkman, CD player, CD/mp3 player, and now finally mp3 player have outperformed all other brands in terms of pure sound.
Summary: I have always liked all SONY products. This player was working well. I did enjoy the simplicity of transfering music and the way it was organized. I bough it in May but after 6 months the screen went blank. I see some vertical lines of green color, but most of it is black now.
