Summary: I oringinally bought an MP3 player, which was wonderful; however, the battery life was horrible. So, I decided to return it, and instead get a CD player. I saw this Sony CD player, and decided to buy it. Let me tell you, it was a great buy.
Summary: I needed an mp3 player for listening to an mp3 CD made from an audio book. Therefore, the player had to be able to resume from the middle of an mp3 track, and it had to be able to fast-forward and rewind within a track. It also needed a built-in radio so I could listen to it while I'm at work.
Summary: I have went through countless portable cd players and 2 mp3 players. I had the same problem as most do with the mp3 player, it used batteries, faster then I could buy them. The Atrac technology included with this unit is useful but I haven't tried to drop the rate to 48kbps yet.
Summary: I looked around a while for an CD player that didn't cost an obscene amount of money, yet has functions I would use. This one is just what I asked for, a simple to use and reliable MP3/CD player. It works great so far. The headphones are a bit cheap, but I have no plans to replace them.
Summary: Here we are, in this progressive era of the iPod. Those little white pillboxes that keep the audiophiles and the fashionistas happy. Technology that has advanced the most important underlying requirements to designing a portable music player: "Design" and "Features".
Summary: I love this walkman! It sounds totally decent with low-bitrate non-music files and terrific with music. (And I like the way it looks too.) I shopped for a while for an mp3/cd player that allows you to fast-forward within mp3 tracks.
