Love this player. If u just need a simple mp3 just for music get this. The only thing I wish was that the player itself was actually a little bigger. Before this I had the creative zen so I was used to a big player but if you dont have this problem the...

Good features for the money


I had a tough choice to make... as I previously owned both a Sony Walkman (4GB) and a Sansa Fuze (8GB+16GB microSD). I liked the sound and interface of both, but wanted more memory which the Sansa gave me. Recently I lost my Sansa Fuze and was out...

Excellent sound, simple menu, easy to use

Overly Sensitive Control Buttons


Be careful when purchasing this MP3. The least little bump to the control buttons and the player changes programming. Just putting this unit in your pocket will usually change the programming. When you turn the unit off, don't even breathe on the...

Great sound

Works, but not convenient


The player would be fair if it only could be used without Widows. It does not support Linux at all. It does not support any of portable playlist formats (m3u, pls, xspf). One cannot create playlist on the player itself -- the only way to create...

Not as good as earlier Walkman MP3s


This is my third walkman MP3 player, so I'm a definite fan of the company and the product line. I bought this largely for language study, but use it a lot to listen to music and podcasts. Unlike the NWZ-S545, which is the best walkman I've owned to...

Great Device


Sony has it going on!. This unit has the ability to play from folders that you setup. You can have jazz for one folder and RnB from another or you can play from both. You choose. Battery life and storage capacity is fantastic!

All Good


I bought this unit to replace a very old Sony Walkman Mp3 player. This unit has good sound and a solid feel. It looks and operates as a well built player.
