"Great sound quality and screen resolution."

  • Pros: Great sound. Crystal clear display. Supports multiple formats.
  • Cons: No bookmarking-not for the audio book lover. Very limited shuffling options-either shuffle your entire collection, including audiobooks or shuffle all of your playslists. Unable to shuffle by genre or playlist.

A perfect player, but a bit too late to the market.

  • Summary: Simply, the best audio/video player on the market. I had a Creative Zen device, an iPod, a Sansa, and finally settled on a Walkman. Audio quality is excellent; videos even on the small screen look sharp; navigation buttons and controls are intuitive and easy to use. Compared to all other players, the Sony gadget has incredible battery life.

Overall, a good little flash player

  • Summary: When I bought this player, it was as a replacement for my creative zen v plus. Originally I started checking what was new on the market because I'd thought my old player had died (it revived later), and what's more is I was ready for something new. Having never had an ipod (and moreover having decided against ever having one because one their famed audio quality) and this only being my second player, I really only have the zen v plus as a comparing basis.

Amazing Player!

  • Summary: I just bought this player. I've had a ton of players over the years and was in the market for a new one after my Creative Zen tanked. I've been really happy with Creative products but when I heard Sony had opened up their players to WMA I had to check it out. All I can say is that the sound quality on this player has to be heard to be believed. It makes EVERYTHING sound amazing! The player is super small, looks very cool, is very intuitive and has amazing battery life.

  • Excerpt: "The Sony NWZA-818 i a brill piece of kit though not perfect. The headphones supplied are noise reducing (great on the bus) and the sound quality is fantastic. Looks good too, very slim and has a nice wieght - feels expensive. However, I felt the screen was a bit exposed and bough a hard plastic case for it . The menu structures are very intuitive and easy to use you get used to it very quickly. Another major good point NO SONICSTAGE! Finally Sony ...
  • Pros: Nice screen, great sound, nice headphones, nice menu
  • Cons: Funny film format, no playlist creation on device
