Summary: My wife has been complaining about the old hand-me-down Sansa and Zune that I had given her, especially since the software that I had was not working and seemed unsupported. So I decided it was time to buy her own shiny new MP3 player, which I selected based on the preponderance of existing user...
Summary: I bought this player about a year ago. I intended to use it to replace an older 8-gig Sony Walkman. The sound quality seems about the same as the older Walkman, but in almost all ways the older Walkman is better than this one.

Summary: I have bought several of the Sony Walkman MP3 players for my husband over the years. It is his favorite because of the ability to use the MP3 or switch to FM radio and has a great battery life.
Defective?? Apparently not but definitely disappointing.

Summary: I've had this for 1 week and I think it's going back. It freezes up without warning and if I'm lucky, I can "fix" the problem by Powering down. If not, have to hook up to the computer and hope that works.
Last version was better...given potential technology costs and improvements suggest Sony failed big time on this one.

Summary: Overpriced for the offering. True most use their phones for music now, but I still like to have a dedicated mp3 player without having to charge the phone constantly. This product is made at a lower cost than it's predecessor which had a metal case as others have noted.
Summary: I bought this for my 60 year old father. I filled it up with songs for Christmas and he loves it. He is challenged when it comes to technology, and this is easy for him to use. It's an inexpensive alternative to an Ipod, the features of which he wouldn't need or use.
Summary: I love this Walkman. I use it only for listening to music. It has a good quality sound, a decent storage capacity and the best part is it works easily and intuitively with Windows Media software. Downloading purchased and CD loaded music from my computer is a snap.

Summary: Typical Sony Junk! After a similar experience with a Sony product years ago I tried to stay away from this company, but a good deal lead me into making the same mistake of buying a Sony product again.
Summary: I like this MP3 player. I use this thing a lot! I don't listen to music on my phone because I have a LOT of music and it uses up too much storage/data on the phone so the MP3 is my go to and I can listen for a couple of hours on it. I must say that I really hate the design of this player though.
