Sony NWZ-B103F (1GB, black)

 

The Sony NWZ-B100F's fitness-friendly design, high-fidelity sound quality, built-in USB plug, and FM tuner make it an ideal MP3 player for active people.

The Sony NWZ-B100F can't handle photos, videos, line-input recording or Audible audiobooks. Also, the three-line display is difficult to read, battery life is only average, and the cap for the USB plug is easy to lose.

If you're looking for an affordable, utilitarian MP3 player to take on the road or to the gym, the Sony NWZ-B100F is a solid solution with awesome audio quality.

Sony NWZ-B105F Review and Prices

 

Sony's newest entry-level player is one of the simplest and most straightforward portable players around. Free of bells and whistles (and video screens) this little player is a real workhorse, perfect for road warriors of all stripes. Part of Sony's...

The FM tuner, quick charging capability and lack of cords really sets the B105 apart

Small buttons and controls slightly difficult to use

"Son's player got accidentally washed, it still works."

 

very lightweight, easy to use

Sometimes the songs repeat on some albums when it should move to the next song

Consumer review by:

Very problematic - turns off for no reason.

 

Mine turns off after moderate use - not reliable. The only Walkman we've owned that has had a problem (not as bad as iPod classic battery that did a Chernobyl). Updated on Dec 17, 2010

Compact, easy to use, decent sound

Power management, volatility makes this thing unstable and shuts down

Consumer review by:

Very unreliable and volatile

 

Initially, it was the perfect mp3 player. But now, it barely functions and I am going ot buy another (functioning) player as soon as possible.

Very portable, good mp3 to start with, great audio quality, good battery life

After several months, it refused to add any new music on. To add music, you have to erase everything on the mp3 player. You have to repeat this process every time. Very easy to damage, liable to shut down and refuse to turn on
