Summary: I bought this as a replacement of previous Walkman for my daughter who has limited vision. This is easy for her to use, has good sound. It has fast forward and reverse, which several others I looked at didn't. Radio is easily programmed. I have bought her this product before and it has doubled in price in just over a year. That is why I only gave it 4 stars.
Summary: The tone is great, it does have a rewind button,there is no static, there is no skipp'n, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer,but did manage to figure out(with the instructions) how to program different stations. I use it to pick up my walk'n pace by listen'n to Mexican music: the cumbias,corrido's,& salsa. The radio station near Fresno CA. is 91.50. Thats radio bilinguie. Its got stations all over USA.
Summary: Great sound quality for my cassettes. Has stop, FF, rewind, and pause. Uses one battery which lasts a long time. It, also, has a battery indicator which lets you know how much energy is left before you have to change it. I am trying to decide, however, if I want to pay $130. 00 for it this time.It was about $40.00 when I last purchased it.That was not that long ago. I dropped it several times and now it doesn't work anymore.
Summary: It was nostalgia and the very positive reviews that led me to purchase the item. But, it is nothing to rave about. For a Sony product, it does not appear to be high quality material and definitely not the $120+ price tag on it.
