Sony Walkman NW-E003F


Another day, another contender for the iPod's crown. Once again it's Sony lining up to wage war against Apple, and with their Network Walkman NW-E003F...

Wide number of supported formats, small, sleek, doubles as a USB drive, reasonably priced, radio

No recording abilities, Have to use SonicStage software

Good value MP3 player only let down by Sony's SonicStage software.

SONY Silver 1GB MP3 Player NWE003SILVER


Over all, it delivers good sounding music in the size of a pen flash memory.

Small, sleek, light, FM tuner, and simple to understand

Sonic Stage" is kind of a bummer. You have to use the software to load music manually or from the web. You can not simply copy your MP3's to the memory ; Also, shouldn't format the memory using windows, or you delete the software in the player's memory

Unique and Sexy MP3 Player


Alright, so I bought it on sale at circuit city for 40 bucks, but I could not ask for a better MP3 player. Not saying it is any better than an ipod, but it has a unique, cigarette lighter shape which is perfect for portable use. Fits into pockets with ...

Sexy, FM radio, Walkman brand history, rechargable battery, USB placement, easy to use/carry Sound quality.

SonicStage program, button placement, DO NOT LOSE CAP(or else the walkman looks naked).

Overall, I really liked this mp3 player. It's so small and can be carried anywhere in your pocket. I did look around for a clip so that I could attach it to my belt or shorts when going for a run, but was unable to find one, even at the Sony Central...

Very small size, compact, lightweight. I could run it for a few days straight before needing to recharge. It also has the option of a quick recharge - plug it in to recharge for just a few minutes and it will give you heaps of playback hours before you...

Can't drag and drop files - you need to install the software that comes with the mp3 player. A bit difficult to get the hang of switching between folders.

This Sony MP3 player was very good value. With great sound quality and compact design, it was perfect for taking out jogging. Although the hardware was great, the biggest letdown was the lack of drag 'n' drop file transfers. Sony's SonicStage software...

Great sound quality, Compact design, Can be used as a USB flash drive, FM radio

No drag 'n' drop file transfer, Buggy SonicStage software
