Sony NW-E002 512MB, blue


Over the past year or so, the company has produced a handful of stylish, great-sounding MP3 players with excellent battery life. The NW-E000 series is no exception. Now, if only Sony would apply that same perseverance to its lackluster SonicStage...

The Sony NW-E000 features a stylish design with a handy built-in USB interface, and it offers some desirable features, such as an FM radio. It's also competitively priced.

Sony's requisite SonicStage software still leaves much to be desired, and the NW-E000's display is impossible to read in direct sunlight. This player's controls are also rather unintuitive.

The Sony NW-E000 is a compact, stylish flash MP3 player that those who can tolerate SonicStage should consider, but beware the unintuitive interface.

I havn't just purchased this product but contacted Sony to try to get software that would enable me to use the MP3 player with Windows 7. Unfortunately it would seem that it can't be used so having had to replace my 'Vista' computer I now am unable to...

When you try to transfer a lot of tracks, they oftn get muddled up. For example, if the order should be a,b,c,d,e you mighty end up with b,a,e,d,c. This is annoying.

Nice colour.

Small display. I find Sony Stage difficult to use. Hard to move between folders. User manual does not tell how to change the battery. Cannot be used to listen to through speakers? Can't delete files from player either. Very user unfriendly.

Sony NW-E002F 512MB


Sound quality is better than any MP3 player I have had or heard

The home (control) button has a mind of its own and on a number of occasions has totally refused to go back to the top menu to allow me to drill down through the submenus. The 'screen' quality is poor with insufficient space to show clearly where you...
