Summary: I should have let Sony have $100 to repair my last player rather than buy this one - this supposed "upgrade". Sony has followed up it's previous model (sound was mindblowing - crisp treble, real depth base, high output volume, a truly delightful listening experience) for this flat, generic sounding...
Summary: Having bought a lot of Sansa products in the past I decided to try a Sony instead. Unfortunately my experience with this player has not been good. After using it occasionally for the first 3 months I finally decided to load it up and listen to it while working in the garage.
Summary: I decided to buy this unit for my 10-year-old son as his first MP3 player because I didn't want to dish out the big bucks for the IPOD not knowing how careful he would be with it. I love my IPOD Classic but they are pricey. Additionally, I've always been a fan of Sony electronics. No more..
Summary: This is my first ever MP3 puchase. I have over 1,000 cds and wanted to try an MP3 so I could listen to my favorite tunes on the disc golf course. Everything started great. From my computer, I could rip my cds onto this Sony with great ease.
Broke in a week - hardly used, no abuse!! Piece of JUNK.

Summary: I cant seem to find a working mp3 player these days. My samsung clip broke twice. So I thought Sony would be a quality product but within a week it was freezing on me. I hit the reset button, it would work for a couple of songs then freeze again. Even in radio mode it will just suddenly freeze.
Summary: Don't purchase this item if you want an operational MP3 for more than a few months. Without any damage to this Sony MP3 player (i.e. dropping it, bumping it, etc), the player just stopped working. It would not power up at all. When we contacted Sony online, they offered an exchange program for $29.
Summary: Defective shortly after warranty. Wrote one review after opening it....loved it. 4 mos later it doesn't work at all.. $90 to refurbish. Sony admitted to continually having products with this model.
