I have to admit it is very difficult to find a fault with this product.
I would definitely recommend ordering a protective housing when you buy the walkman. It is very easy to scratch and get smudges all over it.

Other than that, the only negative comment I have it that it is very difficult to find and download video and movies in the correct format to watch on the walkman.
I got my walkman last week and have not been able to watch a downloaded movie/video on it, even though I have downloaded several .MP4 files which I am able to watch on my PC.

  puts the ipod to shame

| | See all keirthatsme's reviews (10)

this mp4 is comparable to the ipod nano(new) but looks far better and has the style of sony that very few other electronic posses. Smart easy to use design but with advanced features very similar opening screen to sony ericson phones put then plunges you into a world of marvel with increadible video and sound quality. Unfortunately no games and a unusual but speedy USB of similar size to the ipod but very few accessorize not by sony are avaliable unless they are universal docks.

As an mp3 its brilliant with amazing sound which has played tracks clearly and crisply that even on the best CD systems have disortions.

the picture view is of high quality and easy to use

the video is very high quality and thumbnails of any picture you choose can be used, and unlike many video players which must be turned up to full volume to hear audio on videos such as the new ipod classic this has the same volume of video as music.

The syncing process is easy just use wmp or if you dont want album art you can drag and drop.

all in all a brilliant player far better than ipod iriver or creatives competition

Got mine direct from Sony; it is very impressive, sound quality is great and it's so easy to use. I just synch mine with Windows Media Player 11; it automatically loads any new albums/tracks and will ignore anything you've deleted off the player (although you can obviously re-install deleted tracks). Battery life appears good but not been heavily tested yet. If you want a good quality flash memory player this is the one.

  One of the Best MP3/MP4 Players Available

| | See all gadgetman2509's reviews (1)

I had the old 4Gig version that was tied to using Attrac and Sonic Stage from Sony. This player is even better as you can just drag and drop to Windows Media Player 11 (included) and "hey presto". The video quality is fantastic and the sound just blows you away!!! In my opinion the new Sony Walkmans' are far better then the Ipod Nano. At this price you'd be silly not to try it!
