Summary: Lucky I got this when I did, since it is now discontinued and hard to get. Due to the fact that I have used different brands in the past and can be picky about what I get, this is awesome! Very easy to use. Even though it is small, it feels kind of dense. This ISN'T a problem, just an observation. Fits inside my armband for workouts and delivers amazing sound. I am now a fan of these and will, if it every gives out, get a newer version. Thank you Amazon and Sony!
Summary: This device is perfect. I have this device and purchased another as a birthday present. For a small device, it can get very loud and has all the volume you could need. The reception on the radio works is great and is very clear. As for the screen, it's very sharp, clear, and easy to read. Everything was simple and easy to download and use. There's cool features to the device that may take a bit of learning, but it's still very simple to use.
Summary: Its a Sony. Nuff said. Plays music nice and loud. No touch screen is a bonus for me as I cant stand them. Buttons are easy to use, doesnt come with a case so i had to come up with my own. Works very well with win7. MUCH MUCH cheaper than any IPOD at half the size. dare to compare these to the ipod. JW Arlington,tx 6 months later... Still rockin. you wont regret buying a Sony.
Summary: I wanted a new mp3 player and didn't want to spend much. The Walkman seemed to be the best choice because of it's price point. The player itself is set up much like and iPod, but much more simplified, I got this over an iPod because it is cheaper and easier to transfer music onto. It's very good as an mp3 player, with easily accessed settings. The playback quality is also nice.
