Sony NW-A800 Review


Sony offers with the new NW-A800 series Walkman a new digital audio and video player in the iPod nano size range. What catches the eye right away is the large screen. That is no accident as Sony focuses on video playback on this small player. The Sony...

Sony Walkman NW-A805 review


The granddaddy of portable audio gets it right at last

Attractive Easy-to-use menus

Expensive Software not brilliant

It's overpriced, but it's also well designed. The best Sony MP3 player for a while

Sony Walkman NW-A805


The NW-A805 is Sony's first Walkman player that supports video playback. Offering a stunning, compact design, a bright and clear 2in screen and excell...

Design, user interface, controls, excellent equaliser and sound settings, included EX monitor headphones

Price, reliance on poor SonicStage software, location of hold switch

The NW-805 comes with a hefty price tag, but if you can overlook the reliance on SonicStage, this is a fine portable media player with an excellent design and good sound quality.

Sony Walkman NW-A800 2GB


At last, a sign that Sony is recovering from the insanity that has gripped it over the last few years. This flash-based Walkman has, counter to recent tradition, both a pleasantly usable interface and decent desktop software.

Good interface and software, Decent picture quality

Diminutive controls, Too much screen glare

Sony has done well here, cramming a lot of features and functionality into a remarkable compact device

Sony Walkman NW-A805


A cracking video/mp3 player, pity about the software.

Elsewhere the layout is much of a muchness. Volume is controlled by a rocker on the right edge and along the bottom edge are connections for the data cable and your headphones. The main controls are situated under the screen, in easy reach of your thumbs.

Sony NW-A805 Walkman review


Sony's A805 Walkman won a Most Wanted award in What's New, Shopper August 2007 for its superior sound and attractive design. However, next to Samsung's similarly priced YP-T9 player, it looks less good value today.

The A805 sounds fantastic and comes with the best headphones in this test. Its battery life is a strong point, but if you want to use your MP3 player on multiple PCs, the SonicStage software is restrictive. An 8GB version, the NW-A808, is also...

Sony NW-A805 media player


The Sony NW-A805 is an inexpensive, stylish and intuitive portable media player. Sony's NW-A805 Walkman could make Sony MP3 players as big a success as Sony's Walkman phones.

Video playback, audio quality and the Sony NW-A805's design are all absolutely superb. The management software and playback options are good but not fantastic. Sony shook up the music player market with its excellent Walkman-branded mobile phones, and...

Sony Walkman NW-A805 review


Sony has taken its first step into the world of portable video with this Walkman. And what a debut it is

Last month we asked if the NW-800 range could catch Apple napping? It can and it has.
