Summary: I bought this Back in the early 2000's when MP3's were just beginning to be the thing. It's been though moves, cars, and drops and has come out scratched but still serviceable. I use it now as a bed side player (sorry my ipod did take it's place in my purse/car) hasn't failed yet. Love this thing! I just need a new wall charger for it and a remote. too bad sony doesn't have them anymore.
Summary: If you ask me, Sony is really the only one to go with if you want a portable CD player, no one has the same skip protection like Sony's G-Protection. The Mega Bass sound system in my opinion, is the best on the market. What I'm trying to say is, Sony does it right, the quality of the laser, the build quality and the heavenly sound quality. Want a CD player that won't skip when you walk, yet have the sound quality of a home theater system, get the Sony Walkman.
Summary: This CD player has bookmark. I listen to stories, and this CD player remembers where I left off. It is also economical on batteries. I carry it around in a pocket and I am always bumping it on desk and tables, it keeps on running. I had my last one for 10 years. I sent it off to Sony and had it rebuilt. I ask if they had any more left and they said no. It has a great display, and it is easy to read. I have tried 5 others CD players and sold them.
Summary: I have the player plugged into a set of powered speakers and use it to play mp3 cd's. Because mp3's take up so much less space than standard cd audio files, I can fit almost 8 hrs worth of music on one cd. When I'm home all I have to do is to fire up the player, set it to random and I can listen as long I want.
Summary: This player is great for playing MP3 files. It looks cool and it works as advertised. I love how you can actually see the disk spinning and then spin down when you play mp3s. The flat metal back is perfect for attaching a cell phone belt clip. The problem is the G-shock. It cannot be turned off. As is the case with most memory buffer anti-shock systems, the music is compressed with lossy compression in order to maximize the amount of music that can be buffered.
Summary: I bought this CD walkman before the summer of 2002. AND Oh my god, the player is sssooo good. The sound quality is AMAZING!!! Like a stereo going in your head. The player is sssooo strong. I drop maybe 100 times and it played like new. Though I droped it a lot, NO CRACK!!! I never used the MP3 but I think it could have been cool. It was sssoooo easy to use, I never even read the instruction book. ALSO, with the batteries, you can use the player for like a month.
Look no further if you problems with dropping your cd player

Summary: First of all, I'm not gonna bother writing about all of the excellent features this cd player has, as there are several well written reviews on them already and it would be pointless for me to start. But.... the one thing I would like to add is that I have always had a problem with dropping and breaking my cd players.
Summary: First of all, the person before me said it. This CD PLAYER DOESNT DIE! I have dropped the thing countless times- and I mean BAD falls onto concrete and tile and such, and each time it made me shudder; but it still works perfectly!! I cant see how you can engineer something to be that drop-proof. Anyways moving on. The sound is of course nothing below excellent (provided you arent using the bundled headphones), and it should be for a Sony product.
Summary: Listen, you get what you pay for is one of those laws of nature like gravity. Believe me. I first bought the Riovolt for about 45 bucks after rebate. So flimsy. I took it back and shelled out some serious jack, serious for me, to buy this D-CJ01. The difference clearly shows. Solid construction, skip-free and no strange buzzing sounds when I hook it up to my car system. Only gripe, can't get it to play CD-RW's. But that's okay.
