Sony Sony NWZ-A818 Walkman

 

Sony's NWZ-A818 flash-based MP3 player holds up to 8GB of music and video with superb audio quality--without requiringany advanced adjustments. Built with style and function in mind, the NWZ-A818 competes directly with Apple's iPod Nano.

High quality headphones come bundled ; Small and incredibly sleek design

Proprietary connection for PC hookup ; No expandable memory slot

A smartly designed flash based MP3 player that performs well enough to give users a great alternative to Apple's iPod Nano.

Sony NWZ-A815 (2GB, black)

 

The Sony NWZ-A810 offers a slim design with a lovely, ample screen. It's also easy to use and comes with high-quality earphones. Audio quality is excellent, and there are plenty of sound enhancement options and two custom EQs. The player supports photo...

Even with the included extender, the Sony NWZ-A810's earphone cable is very short. The placement of the hold button on the back of the player is neither convenient nor ergonomic. There's no FM tuner, voice recorder, or memory expansion slot.

The Sony NWZ-A810 offers a fantastic display, a sleek design and interface, and a stellar battery life--plus, it's one of the few MP3 players that sound great right out of the box. Users looking for the whole package (sans radio) will be pleased.

Sony NWZ-A818 Review and Prices

 

The 818 Walkman video player is Sony's top-of-the-line portable player, part of their 810 Series and the first the company is billing as "open standard." Sony has finally seen the light and will now support music downloaded from today's most popular...

Review: Sony Walkman Video NWZ-A818

 

This just in, apparently, the new Sony Walkman does not play audio cassette tapes, or do any of the other things I mentioned. In fact, Sony has asked that you not get out the legwarmers…Flashdance is so 1983, anyway.

Sony is well known for the quality of their music players, and with this latest edition to the Sony Walkman line, that reputation really shined through. Of course, this is also Sony's first foray into digital video, and I thought that showed as well....

No SonicStage, great sound, good quality headphones included, nice design

No radio or voice recorder, no lossless formats supported

If you can handle having no voice recorder or radio and are dissatisfied with the sound quality of other portable media players, then the Sony NWZ-A815 is a great choice.

Sony Walkman NWZA815

 

Pitched directly at the iPod Nano market, Sony's latest Walkman has a few advantages over its rival. The screen is bright and crisp and the displayed MP4 videos look great. The battery life, too, is impressive should it manage the purported 30 hours...

Good display, Drag and drop, Reasonably good value

No expansion possible

A strong offering from Sony, with plenty to recommend it
