Excerpt: This is the second Sony MP3 player that I have used and must say that these new Sony players have come on leaps and bounds. The player itself is very small and light and will fit in any pocket.
Pros: Drag and drop file transfer, small and stylish
Excerpt: Great little player, excellent sound quality (due to a combination of great supplied earphones and the output of the player), crisp, clear video viewing and a very nice layout of buttons. I own the black version of the player, which looks great.
Pros: sound quality, video quality, appearance, value for money, ease of use .
Cons: Doesn't support a great amount of formats for playback .

Pros: Large 16GB capacity, easy to use interface, easy to transfer music/pictures, superb sound quality .
Cons: Incompatibility with many video formats and competitor mains/USB recharger adaptors

Excerpt: I have sony ericsson mobile, I am fully satisfied but I would buy this. I think I have 99% of this in my sony ericsson mobile so why buy it? If I wanted something special I would definately buy iPod.
Excerpt: Got the Sony NWZ-A829 a couple of days ago as a present. Up to now I've just had a cheap 2gb MP3 player. I wanted a player with a large memory capacity but didn't want an iPod. The machine is very sleek, less than a centimetre wide and looks very stylish, in shiny black.
