Summary: I've used the product in the past month and I'm really enjoying it. It looks nice, supports the formats I need, sounds great, and within the budget I wanted. Menus are ok, could have been easier to use, especially moving back and forth between mp3, video and radio. overall, good purchase, I am happy with it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Lots of Storage, Reliable Performance, Sleek/Compact
Summary: The menu and interface on this mp3 are intuitive and easy. The screen has excellent quality. The FM receiver works really well. Best of all, no Apple spyware need be installed on your computer for you to run it. Will work fine and easy with Windows Media Player. I bought an accessory clear acrylic case to put it in my pocket, and this is nice. Allows me to not worry about scratching it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound, Lots of Storage, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact, Tough
Summary: This is a wonderful little piece of equipment, but if your looking for photo/video capabilites ... look elsewhere. The LCD is too small for any good resolution when it comes to photos, and installing a playable video is a nightmare! I love Sony's electronics, and as far as Sound Quality this MP3 player is superb, but I've tried every way I can think of to load a video and all I get is "not playable" warning.
Pros: Great Sound, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Sleek/Compact, Tough
Summary: This is the BEST Sony Walkman MP3 player I ever bought.. GREAT sound with the BOSE noise reducer QC3 head phone and it can hold more songs & video. Highly recommended to those who loves peace and quiet and yet listen to a music you love....in a symphony style or concert. Better than concert I should say......Love it!!!!
A great little mp3 player, however it's flaws become apparen ...

Summary: I bought the Sony NWZ S618f 8gb after seeing it in a sale at the local argos, and decided I wasn't going to follow the crowd and buy an ipod. From this point of view, this mp3 player is perfect for all of your needs. It has easy to use buttons pads, a well position volume rock and hold system as well as having the headphone jack on the top as opposed to the apple ipod design on the bottom which always annoyed me.
Pros: Value for money, radio function as a free extra, battery life
Summary: When looking at the NWZ-S618, you are filled with high hopes and the anticipation of its video playback capabilities. The player is a compact package that gives a sense of build quality and serious technological advancement. The controls are placed conveniently on the bottom of the player , directly beneath the display screen. The buttons and controls are sensitive and comfortable to press.
Pros: Good battery stamina, user friendly
