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 Network Walkman NW-MS review: Sony Network Walkman NW-MS

 

Sleek, compact design; strong audio quality; great battery life; 256MB of built-in memory; expansion slot.

Expensive; proprietary encryption scheme slows transfer time and eats hard-disk space.

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

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.

Sony Network Walkman NW-MS70D

 

For the price, this unit doesn't have a lot going for it. It is clumsy to operate, and the display is too small. It has a slot for a Memory Stick, although a 'MagicGate' adaptor is required.
