Nice

CHARLES LOWERY, Amazon

  • Summary: I like this Mp3 Player. It sometimes freezes, but for the most part plays pretty well. I think because I bought it "reconditioned".

Great feel and ease of use - but it has a hardware and a software problem.

Aaron Burr, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • 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: Unit works well but has a "spot" on the screen. It is a used product so did not expect it to be new.

  • 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.

Not bad for music

Tech fan, Amazon
3 April 2010
  • 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.

Frustrating lack of video compatibility

John in San Diego, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • 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.

Good but disappointed

S. Stodola, Amazon
24 May 2009
  • 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: The Positive: Sleek and stylish design, very good sound quality, controls well designed and easy to use, crisp and clear screen, great battery life, easy to drag and drop MP3 files into folder on PC for loading onto Walkman, nice small size.

Battery Life Less than Claimed

Sober Power Walker, Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: First the good news. This product has excellent sound quality when playing songs or when using the FM radio. In fact, on the FM, it has much better quality than the Sony radio I was previously using. The bad news is that the 30+ hour rated battery falls woefully short.

A Downgrade from Previous Models

Darryl Pierce "RadioMan", Amazon
22 October 2008
  • Summary: Sony has done it again. They took a really good product and made it mediocre. This is supposed to be the 3rd generation upgrade of their new line of Video Walkman Mp3 players. You would think it would be better than the 600 and 700 series players. Well, in IMHO it is not.
