Summary: I enjoy this Sony NWZ-A865 Media Player.I haven't had any issues with it. However the connecting cable with the USB on one end and other end only fits Sony products so be careful not to loose this cable. Maybe one day Sony will make their cables a little more user friendly. I have been a Sony product person for many years and feel that Sony products are well made and deside to last.
Summary: I purchased this item used and from the start this player does not do well with movement. No software, no instructions. It works great sitting still. Bluetooth only works for a short period and very short distance. $170.00 bucks down the drain. Someone dumped this product obviously because of these issues. It does have great storage capacity.
Summary: Great MP3 player. Has superb sound quality. I hear no difference of quality when I transfer my CDs to my Walkman which is made simpler with MediaGo. Excellent touch screen responds well. Has a great recorder. Interface is very simple to navigate. Doesn't include speakers so you can only hear with headphones. The trade off for sound quality is worth it.
Summary: Sony apparently does not support the sync software for this any longer. The only version I could find for it was dated 2008. It is not recognized by Win 7... good luck with Win 8. I fiddled with this for over a day trying to load music (no help on the Sony site). I got a Samsung 3.6" instead -- Great result.
Summary: My New Favorite MP3 player. to replace my old one :( which still works having been thru hell.. no really it melted a little.. but again still works. Pros: Sound quality, durability, screen (being touch an with physicals buttons!!!) & Bluetooth(Streaming, sharing, receiving) & bookmarking(explained below) Cons: proprietary (non-replaceable) battery & memory both in being 14GB & flash (non expandable) :/ No built in speakers(minor inconvenience for me) No ability to create...
Summary: Sony did an excellent job on making this MP3. The touch screen is fast and the side buttons on it are awesome. It's very solid feeling and the sound that can come out of the thing is unbelievable. I have some really nice headphones and they sound unbelievable with this mp3. You can turn on clear bass on the MP3 and it sounds great. I've listened to friends iPod's and the sound quality is noticeably lessened.
Summary: I currently have three different Walkmans and the only reason I purchased this unit was because my gym Walkman (lol..yes, I have a Walkman just for the gym/working out) was that the battery was not holding a charge that well after five years of continuous use. I also have a Cowon S9 for business travel that works very well but is too big for the gym/everyday use IMO. I use this unit quite a bit and finding new ways to integrate this player into my life.
