Great purchase. Reliable, cheaper then the competition, long battery life,

Summary: I have always liked sony products but after having a bad experience with an Ipod, 3 years ago, I decided to get a 8GB sony walkman MP3 player. Honestly I though that had better sound quality then the Ipod did & it was much cheaper. About a month ago I had a bit of an accident; I left my player inside my swimming trunks & went swimming. To my displeasure the poor think did not make it.
Sony Walkman - despite a few minor annoyances, this is a nice MP3 player!

Summary: The custom EQ settings should have been about a 30-band EQ, instead of the fuzzy-wuzzy 5 band, though the Bass Boost helped alot for in-ear headphones. It sounds good with closed-ear headphones, though; very impressive. Another tidbit that would make this a better Walkman is that the battery could have been a replaceable battery. It seems like all of the current market MP3 players utilize the built-in battery type, and they do not last forever.
Great product, only wish it had more options. for the 16gb is worth it

Summary: I like the little gizmo, particularly for the size. It does not have as much toys or features as it's brothers, BUT I like it. I wish the battery lasts longer, but again, I'm comparing it to it's brothers, if you compare it to other mp3 players out there, the battery is way WAY better anyways.
Summary: I love this little player. I much prefer it to my iPod because I can usually pause it and not lose my place, plus it has a long and realistic battery charge. The only problem is with itunes or I would never bother with my iPod again.
Summary: This is one sweet little mp3 player. 16 gb holds my entire music collection with room to spare. Navigation is easy, and the sound is great,but then again, it's a Sony, so you would expect that!
Summary: After 9 years with my 1gb iRiver mp3 player, I felt it was time to upgrade and very glad I did. The screen display is huge. The features on this player are great...you could even download a couple of movies alongside your hundreds of mp3's. If anything it has almost too much space. I would recommend the accessories for this (screen protector, protective case, ac adapter and car /usb charger) as it will get scratched easily and you will need to charge it occasionally...
