Summary: I just purchased this jewel, from a seller in ISRAEL! Brand new, great price, in original package. The price of $199 listed for the one here on Amazon, for a NEW one, you will not find anywhere else. These are a rare item.
Summary: The price is very good for this model but: The seller implied I'd get ear buds and implied a remote, got neither. Being from China it may have been a language problem. The unit has no stop CD only a pause. It does cut out at the end of the album.
Summary: The device works well but is is not made to last. If you use the device on a regular basis you might expect it to last 6 to 12 months before something in the electrical system fails. I'm on my 3rd unit in 2 years and that is with gentle but regular use. The sound is good.
Summary: I find it rare in today's world of even disposable laptops that a small product like this Sony D-NF340 Walkman, with a hefty price tag, exceeds my expectations. It really does play without skipping, noise or glitches on it's side, when I'm in motion, jumping, running or biking. I'm impressed.
Summary: I've owned three of these in twelve plus years. I use them daily. I listen to audio mp3 books almost daily. This way i can listen to books and sew or garden a great product. I like the fact that it remembers where I'm at when I start it again.
Summary: This is not a good item to purchase. I purchased one and after a few months it did not work properly. Skipped as you were listening to a book. Very frustrating. I just chalked it up as a fluke and ordered another one since the return time had passed.
