Summary: I bought this used from a seller on here. The player is excellent! I think that it listed for around $479. The condition as shipped was like brand new. Not a scratch on it anywhere including the screen if you can believe that! Amazing sound reproduction is putting it lightly. Sony once again spanks Apple junk!! My only two complaints are that it didn't come with the headphones that sold with it.
Summary: For an 8g player under $100, this is a great product. The drag and drop feature is so easy to use and the sound quality is awesome. My only complaint is that some times for whatever reason it will put songs with an artist title under "unknown artist". If you delete and reload the song a couple times however, it usually will end up putting in the right category.
Summary: This is a great mp3 player. I have had a ipod, Sandisk and now this. This is by far the best out of those and way cheaper. The good: 1. Sound is excellent, way better than the other players I have used. I would say definitely cd quality sound. 2. Long battery life! 3. Easy to put music on, drag and drop or sync using Windows Media. You don't need proprietary software! 4. Easy to use controls, not complicated.
Summary: I finally got with the times and bought a non-cd portable device and this is it. Overall, I like it. I just wish it were Mac compatible. i thought I'd plug it into my Mac just for charging purposes and it completely froze. Besides that, it's been very good. Not sure about the headphones though. Either I have oddly shaped ear canals or the headphones are not a good shape because they don't quite stay in.
Summary: I had an iPod 2GB Nano and wanted to get something with larger capacity. I did some research and finally bought the Walkman. I was around for the very first Sony Walkman casette tape player, so the idea of getting a Sony MP3 player was appealing. After using it for over a month, I find it a great little device. The battery life is amazing. I charged it over two weeks ago and have used it on multiple three hour car rides.
Summary: beauty piece, great battery life, nice display, but- if the mp3 is off more than aprox 4 hr it takes about 20 sec to create library when turned on but will still resume where last stopped. (maybe it's part of the secret to it's long battery life, cause it completley shuts down after 4 hr!) 2. i experienced a few mixups with cover art, e.g. a few albums showed the wrong cover art. (maybe cause i pasted cover art & didn't get it off the web.) 3.
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.
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.
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.
