Sony Walkman E Series (NWZ-E353)


At $69.99 (direct), the new Sony E Series Walkman (NWZ-E353) MP3 player is very reasonably priced. Not only do you get 4GB of storage, a 2-inch screen, and photo and video support, but for far less than the new Apple iPod nano ($149; 8GB, 2.5 stars),...

Affordable. Decent set of features for price. Simple to navigate

User interface and controls feel dated. No scrolling or touch screen—just slow buttons. No FM or voice recording. Limited file support. Mediocre earbuds

HATE IT! It won't display my album artwork


I'm not taking these files from iTunes. My images are EMBEDDED into the mp3 file yet the Sony Walkman DOES NOT DISPLAY MY ARTWORK. Taking this back to the store. Worst mp3 player EVER!

Walkman- The Sound King!!


I have been a big walkman fan since old cassette days. I never bought Ipod because I knew Walkman sound expertise is unmatched and I was right!! First thing that I was taken over by was the great sound quality. I have listened to ipod. With due respect...

No Expandable Memory, Drag n Drop can take time, No External Speakers For Alarm ;

Good little walkman


Hey Sony this device must have a dedicated On /OFF button to ensure the device does not power on erroneously as the any button Switch On feature causes the unit to switch on in a bag thus causing battery drain and reducing battery time

good sound and good features ;

does not have a dedicated On /OFF button ;

Loved it


I bought this MP3 for my brother for Christmas. I preloaded his favorite songs, pictures and wallpaper (which I love you can change). I immediately noticed its screen was bright and crisp. I loved that it allowed you to look threw menus and pictures...

Bright colorful screen, sleek look, nice OS, great sound ;

Ear buds weren't amazing, can't drag and drop videos ;

Poorly Designed...Too Much Hype


The Sony 353 is designed to look good but is not designed for heavy use. I bought it to use it while running but the shuffle option won't work with just one of the folders. Too many useless options and the ones I require just seem to not work. But it...

Nice MP3 player. Replaces an old iRiver.


So far I like it alot. The drag & drop feature made it easy to transfer music from WMP to the software. Since my old MP3 player didn't have a screen, this one is nice, perfect size, and easy to use. I mainly use it for gym workouts. Sound is excellent...

Simple, Reliable, Easy to Use, Great battery Life, Nice screen ;

On" button is easily pushed in tight spaces, like a pocketbook ;

Perfectly Simple


A great little unit for someone who wants something minimalistic. It does exactly what it says it does and nothing more.. A small memory forces simplicity upon this faithful and easy to use MP3 player and video display. I don't need all the apps in the...

Simple to use, charges up well ; the battery really lasts ;

Slow to upload. Have to format the unit before you use it. Must back-up info from the flash drive ; very small screen ;
