Sony S-Series Walkman ( second generation, 8GB, black)

 

Sony had a major success with the launch of the S-Series Walkman in the fall of 2008. The company stepped up with a sleek and compact device that offered a bounty of useful features along with stellar sound quality and fantastic battery life. As might...

The Sony S-Series Walkman is very inexpensive and easy to use; it offers support for multiple audio codecs as well as subscription music and Amazon video; photos and videos look great on the big, bright screen; audio quality is superb and the rated...

The Sony S-Series Walkman no longer offers noise cancellation or upgraded headphones; there's no podcast support, SenseMe Channels, or on-the-go playlists; getting video onto the device can be a hassle.

The Sony S-Series Walkman is a solid entry-level MP3 player thanks to its ultra-affordable price tag, easy-to-use design, excellent performance, and fair smattering of features--but those who are looking to upgrade from the previous generation will not...

Sony Walkman S540 Review

 

It's that time of year again; the time when Sony takes a look at their MP3 player line up, decide it's time for an update, and run a computer application that randomly adds and removes some features and then releases the result as a new player.

One of the hardest thing about reviewing Sony players is to try to make each review stand on it's own instead of being a continuing story from the last X amount of players they released. With the same menus, features (to some extent), sound quality,...

This 8GB Sony MP3 player is a strong competitor to the iPod Nano

 

Sony's mid-level MP3 player competes with the iPod Nano, and while it is superior for video or photo viewing, the interface doesn't hold a candle to Apple's tried and tested iPod menu system. If you're a multimedia enthusiast and don't mind the lack of...

Good quality screen, inbuilt stereo speakers

No Wi-Fi, inferior controls to iPod Nano, poor bundled earphones

Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 8GB

 

The NWZ-S639F's successor doesn't make quite the same impression, but the NWZ-S544 is still a capable media player.

Sony NWZ-S544 review

 

The Sony NWZ-S544 sports a pleasing design. We tested the pink model, but a variety of colours are offered. The MP3 player is sturdy but still relatively light, so it doesn't add significant weight to your pocket. The matte finish over most of the body...

Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 review

 

Sony's Walkman NWZ-S544 looks and feels classy thanks to its shiny red metal design.

Sony's 8GB Walkman NWZ-S544 is a good MP3 player, but it's not a big improvement over the cheaper NWZ-E443.

Sony - NWZ-S544 8GB Video Walkman

The playback quality of the music and movies that we tested was very good and at its core the S544 is a decent PMP. Unfortunately it falls down in a number of areas including the Content Transfer software, limited format support, the lack of...
