Sony Network Walkman Digital Music Player NW-MS70D

 

The Sony Network Walkman Digital Music Player NW-MS70D is a striking player with a dazzling array of rotating rings, knobs, and sliding controls. Learning to use these iconoclastic controls, unfortunately, can be a challenge.

Sony NW-MS70D: iPod Killer or Expensive Paper Weight

 

Spending that little bit extra on a Sony product usually means the purchase offers a high minimum standard of quality. This is the case for Sony's new NW-MS70D, part of Sony's "Network Walkman" line. While it will not take out the iPod, the NW-MS70D is...

Before taking a look at sound quality, let's examine an equally important feature - battery life. The NW-MS70D features an in-built rechargeable battery, which Sony says has up to 33 hours of life before needing to be recharged. During our internal...

Sony NW-MS70D Network Walkman review

 

Sony's foray into the MP3 market is a strange one. On the one side its player - The Network Walkman is small, sleek and well styled, on the other however the player isn't actually an MP3 player. Sony being Sony has once again decided to create its own...

Minimalist design

Proprietary software and coding formats

If Sony wishes to recover financially, they need to stop using cul-de-sac formats which were great for MiniDisc but not necessary other styles of music player.

If you get your digital music from CDs alone, this tiny player rocks; otherwise, format conversion mars the experience.

Crud Software

 

The sound quality is really good and can hold alot for its size, long battery life, cool looking player and charger, I always have people coming up to me asking if they can see it

Really junk software, takes forever to convert files and load into player, titanium finish gets lots of hard to remove fingerprints, really expensive for only 180 songs, can't download music from player to any other computer except original
