Pros: Lightweight, thin with good body design and grip, Durable, scratch resisting screen, Easy to use, straight forward controls, 3.5mm headphone jack, Fully equipped, well designed built-in stereo speakers capable of stunning music quality, 42 hours of audio playback on a single charge
Cons: Lacks Sony’s noise canceling technology, No on board accelerometer, Due to lack of WiFi connectivity, downloading podcasts directly are also out of the question (though it is possible to achieve this via alternative methods!)
Excerpt: Sony recently announced the launch of their latest MP3 player, the Sony S-Series Walkman, we were lucky enough to get our hands on this new Walkman, and have had a chance to test it out to see how it performs.
Summary: The Sony NWZ-S544 is an 8GB MP3 player/portable media player designed to compete with Apple's iPod nano. It offers a better screen for watching video or playing movies, but it doesn't stand up to the iPod's polished music system.
Excerpt: The latest Sony Walkman player to hit the streets is the NWZ-S544 PMP. As usual Sony has incorporated a rather funky touch into the device, but looks aren’t everything as we’ve clearly seen with so many other devices over time. So how did this one fare? This is what I think.
Sony S544 : MP3-Player mit eingebauten Stereo-Boxen
28 May 2010
Summary: Der getestete Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 überzeugt im Test durch gute Ausstattung, sehr lange Akkulaufzeit und satten Klang. Die eingebauten Lautsprecher sind eine nette Zusatzfunktion, mehr nicht. Abstriche müssen Käufer lediglich bei den abspielbaren Musikformaten machen.
