Sony NWZ-B142 2GB

 

Does what it's supposed to do and for the size/price I can't imagine any other product could be better. Some reviewers seem to have taken a dislike to this player but don't share their point of view and neither have I experienced any problems at all

No as yet!

Very easy indeed to upload music onto it. Good battery life.

The only downside is that there is nothing to clip the player to your person.
