Summary: I've had this mp3 player for almnost a year now and I am still impressed. The sound quality combined with the headphones that come with the player is simply FANTASTIC. The impressive sound is definately a huge plus. You woin't be disappointed.
Summary: I have purchased three of these. Too bad Sony stopped making this design. One died when I dropped it in the ocean. But the reason I bought this model was for it's storage capacity, small size and the built-in noise cancelling headphones.
Summary: I own an Ipod Nano (5th generation) and I keep that docked in my stereo as when it comes to using an MP3 player when running or at my desk, I prefer the Sony Walkman. Hands down!! Just easier to use, better sound (once I got different headphones) and less accidental menu selections.
Summary: We have several of these Sony MP3's in our household. The ease of use is one of the key factors for us. You don't HAVE to register with a website to get downloads, but can. Awesome product; will continue to buy this brand/type.
A great player but a few quirks - especially if you like podcasts

Summary: First of all, I really do like my Sony Walkman NWZ-S718F. The sound is great, battery life is fine and I love the drag-and-drop. I also like not being locked in to Apple. I'm not crazy about the proprietary USB cable but I've been luck enough to not lose it yet (knock on wood).
Summary: +: I bought this MP-3 player when it was on sale for $130...that's 35% off of the $200 regular price tag. This walkman is small but not too small. It fits in my pockets and hands very nicely...though I do have small hands. The buttons should be easy to use even for someone with large fingers.
Summary: The style is nice and the noise cancellation works really well. Only bad is that the headphones are made specially for the mp3 so it won't work with any other headphone jack. easy to handle and light. a good buy overall.
