Sony NW-E407

 

Good looks and amazing battery life make this flash player a true contender.

Fantastic battery life ; Cool and unique design ; Bright, easy-to-read OELD ; Solid sound ; Gets really loud

No FM tuner or recording features ; Inelegant software ; Must use Sony's SonicStage software to get music onto the player

Performance Remember that ultrafast charging that Sony brags about? Well, you're not going to need to use it very often. The Sony NW-E407 lasted a staggering 44.4 hours in our tests, coming decently close to Sony's own claim of 50 hours. Unfortunately,...

Sony NW-E407

 

Apart from the odd mumble about battery life it was hard to criticize Apple and its peerless range of iPod music players. All that changed with the arrival of the dog of the group - the shuffle. Sure it was small, cute and relatively cheap...

Singing USB

 

It all stacks up. The Sony E407 has the same memory as the market leader from a fruit named company at 1GB, but when I bought it in April 2006 it was £30 dearer than it's rival's white coloured equivalent memory sized player at £129.99. I bought this...

Sony Walkman NW-E407

 

Sony Walkman NW-E407 does not resemble with the same series of Sony Walkman Portable tape player. this 85 x 30 x 14 mm multimedia gadget is more like USB Flash or cigarette lighter than Portable tape player. NW-E407 has many variations in capacity (...

Great kit, shame about the software

 

Great looks, sound, quality, navigation and battery life.

Software interface is seriously lacking in quality for a device which is useless without it.

Great kit, shame about the software

 

As with most Sony products you would expect a stylish high quality product to grace your palms, and I agree with most other reviewers that this is no exception. It looks great, sounds great, and is surprisingly easy to navigate and use. The radio ...

Product Specifications

There's no sacrifice with the NW-E407. It's incredibly small, about the size of a pack of gum, yet it still has a 3-line display. Keep track of song duration, title, battery level and more. It comes with 1GB storage capacity, letting you load up with 695 songs of your choice. The NW-E407 also features excellent battery life: up to 50 hours of playback on one full charge. And, if you're down to your last bar, just quick charge it. A three-minute charge gives you three hours of battery life. It's time to step up to Sony.
