Sony E-Series Walkman ( second generation, 8GB, red)

 

Like its predecessor, the second-gen Sony E-Series has a fairly standard design, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it makes the player very straightforward to operate. Below the 2-inch screen are the main playback controls: a five-way control...

The second-generation Sony E-Series Walkman is very inexpensive and features a compact design with a nice, bright screen. It's easy to use and offers a variety of desirable extras, such as an FM tuner, a user-customizable EQ, and support for Amazon...

The E-Series Walkman has a lower rated battery life than before, and there's still no podcast support. Sony eliminated Rhapsody DNA integration.

The second-generation Sony E-Series Walkman remains an excellent value thanks to its ultralow pricing, pocketable design, handy features, and great sound quality.

Sony Walkman E340 Review

 

With the S540 review out of the way, it's time to shift focus to its baby brother, the E340. How does it compare to the S540?

The E340 is for all intents and purposes a somewhat limited version of the S540. For $30 less, you get a smaller player (with a smaller screen) that lacks a voice recorder, FM recording, video stand and speakers as well as having a mini-USB port...

Probably the best MP3 player, ever.

 

You need this.

Had this little guy for probably 6 years now, given as a Christmas gift. It has been soaked in water, dropped from all kinds of heights, and even ran over with a lawn mower, after sitting outside for a week. and it still works fine. the simple...

the little nook in the bottom left broke off so I cannot have it dangle from my key chain

Good Buy

 

I would recommend using Winamp to transfer music to the device. I did not have very good experiences trying to use Windows Media Player or the transfer program that comes with the device.

Fast, easy and quick music transfer, good sound quality, easy to use interface, and long battery life ; The number one pro to me would be the quick and easy music transfer. I came from using an iRiver H10 for years, and that was a ridiculous trial to...

Can only be charged while plugged into a computer, can not make custom play lists on the device itself, and it scratches very easily. I didn't think much of the scratch complaints when I bought it because aesthetics are meaningless to me, but it...

Rock On

 

Good value for the money and fits my needs exactly

Intuitivly simple! Amazing accoustics! Great Price! Easy sync haven't read the instructions yet but it is up and running in a few minutes. With 16Gb there is ample room

Headphones are fair at best. Using my old reliables as alternative no problem

Very decent player!

 

Overall, the sound quality is very impressive, and offers great quality for the price (70-80 bucks)!

Compact; intuitive; easy to operate; nice, simplified software; very clear ambient sound; decent battery life; volume is much louder than on most other mp3/4 players

Somewhat slow in terms of uploading songs. Be prepared to wait for 1 or even 2 hours if you wish to upload 7GB+ at once. Also, you definitely need a protective case or scratches will appear quickly

Sweet!

 

- No AM radio- not really a con...

I like this unit a lot ; Lots of room ; FM radio ; Picture storage and Videos were an unexpected bonus

Ear Phones not great- however, at this price point, what would you expect

compact, sound is awesome, easy to use

Teenage Son Loves It!!

 

It was a late Christmas present and someat sholl stole his old MP3 player. He did the research and picked this particular one out because it was 16 GB instead of the usual 4 or 8. He loves it and knew how to use it right away.
