Summary: I love the combination of uses for this remarkable player. I have a much older version of the same player and still use it but wanted a newer version and purchased this one. Excellent choice and it arrived as advertised for a good price.
Summary: Unit was listed as missing remote control and I had one from my old inoperative unit so it worked great. But as Sony Walkman CD players are wont to do, it started eating batteries, one per 8 hours of operation so I bought a power supply and it works just fine, just not more than 3 feed from an AC outlet. And I use it next to my bed so no big deal.
Summary: My wife wanted a portable MP3 player with radio capabilities to use when we go fishing. I checked on the Internet for units and I only found that Sony made a unit that I was looking for, the Sony DNF-430 ATRAC CD Walkman Portable Compact Disc Player with AM/FM/TV/Weather Digital Tuner. Everything works great and it was a bargain to get. I highly recommend this unit.
Summary: I have already written an interim report on this item, which I was obliged to send---at my own expense---to Sony's Texas repair facility, on the telephone advice of one of Sony's tech support persons. I liked the device's quality of sound very much, but the controls were too small to work easily and, eventually, the device failed to call up one of its own programs.
Summary: It is a great CD/MP3/Radio walkman. No doubt it is the best one of similar products. The CD playing is of best quality. It is possible to adjust sound effect by applying preset or user defined equilizers. Have own the player for some months, two disavantages annoy me: no backlight for LCD on the player. The 4 in 1 radio is really great. However the background noise can not be eliminated. It is can not be ignored if a hi-end headphone is used.
Summary: This is a great CD player and radio. I use this to knit and listen to books. It works great and it takes only 1 AA battery that definitely gets a lot of time. Highly recommend. Also, the ear buds that come with it work really well. I use a headset unless I'm in an enclosed area near others and I have used the ear buds with great success.
Summary: I got one of these for myself many months ago. Then I got another for my daughter. Unfortunately, mine was stolen. I got it through one of the Amazon stores for under $50.00, brand new. It looks just like this one. The model number is the same. So why the ridiculous, inexplicable, plain ol' wrong spike in price? That said...I do love the thing. This is my second Sony ATRAC. I got the first years ago, and it finally fell apart after years of play, hours every single day.
Summary: Well, I bought this product so I could play my mp3 discs on it on the go other than just on my stereo system, and since the space is only limited by the amount of CDs you can hold. I'm using it as a supplement to my HD mp3 player and stereo system but I'm finding I use it more than those even. While my stereo and HD mp3 player can play mp3s just fine this sometimes has problems.
Summary: Boyfriend loves his little walkman. This was a hit. In an age where $10.99 will buy you a personal cd player, $53 seemed a bit over-priced. However, I wanted some very specific features such as weather and TV bands and this was the only return on my search that was made by a company I trusted. Yes. I love Sony products because they almost always do exactly what they say they will do and tend to last as long or longer than competition. This product is no exception.
