Sony NWZ-B142 2GB

 

It's straight-forward to use and is good value for money given the quality of the product (I have bought cheaper MP3 players in the past but they never last long!)

I think the maximum volume is too quiet - It's probably set at that limit to stop people a) damaging their hearing and b) annoying other people on public transport but I listen to mine while walking to work and, when walking along the busiest roads...

Good sound quality with ear phones that fit in the ear easily. The electronics for listening to the music and radio are top of their class and a very all in a very groovy black plastic casing

Very desirable for the music listener however it is not an essential piece of kit

None of the Music download sites are worth the visit. For me a total waste of time and money

The product is of superior design and is easy to use as well as easy to carry with you. The sound quality is excellent and downloading songs is simple, it is excellent value for money

There is no bad points about the Sony walkman

Very portable, easy to download to

I hate loud music, but when I'm in the gym the maximum volume does not drown out the music that is being played. The cap is loose and can come off, but have bought Tuff-Luv Classic Leather Case Cover for Sony Walkman B Series- Black so that I don't...

Easy to use, battery life is great. Great for personal use

Maybe it's my ears but the earphones just don't seem to want to stay, especially whilst I am the move

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
