Excerpt: This multifunctional device does everything expected of an MP3, but with an in-store price just under $70, the Sony Walkman is a real bargain. This sleek device holds up to 30 hours of music, 6 hours of video, and dozens of images.
Summary: I got this mp3 player almost 4 years ago and it's still working fine. I don't care for ipods and other fancy music players. I also don't have more than 4,000 songs I want to put on this player, so to me having the biggest GB isn't a concern. I currently have 1,193 songs but that number is increasing. Having said that, there is still a lot of memory on this device. It's proven to be very durable over time and has obviously lasted a good while. The battery isn't terrific.
Summary: The Walkman is excellent. Works great. I love the size. Small enough to fit in any pocket.It has all the features I love and can use plus more. This is my second Sony Walkman and they get better every time.
Summary: It's a tough little player. I've had mine for the last few years, and while others have come in and out of the house, this one hasn't broken. It's been sat on, dragged beneath a laundry basket, dropped, thrown, crushed, and it still works perfectly. I wish it came in a larger size than 2GB, and that it was still available. As it is, this is probably the easiest and sturdiest mp3 player I've come across.
Summary: Sony's MP3 player's are simple. What I like about them mostly are: the size, sturdiness, and the battery life. It is small enough to carry, and pocket friendly when exercising or traveling. It won't break easily, because it's made of hard plastic. It's battery life is so great that you can go a day or two with only charging it once. What I don't really like about Sony's Walkman are: Less gadgets, no camera/photos, and no games.
Summary: I got this player for a Christmas present and it lasted me two years. It was very easy to use. It died after some water got into it on accident, and even then it took about two months to finally give up the goose by the pad dying and not the player itself. I highly recommend this player.
Best investment! Bought in '08 or '09 and still using it almost daily!

Summary: Way back in 2007 I was still in the habit of carting around a bag of mix cds to play on my disc man. It was imperative to carry spare batteries because they would die out pretty quickly. It became a matter of knowing where to buy the best priced "AA"'s in the largest packs. I knew about the much discussed Ipods. I refuse to buy I products and then one day a coworker informed me about "MP3" players! Wow, really?
