Customer Reviews:

  • Great Ipod alternative
    For a year, I tried to get my Ipod to do what I expected it to do (e.g. function with different computers, file transfer, etc). I found the Ipod very frustrating. Oh, another frustrating thing about the Ipod was finding the files after I had already played them before. It seemed to me that they moved away from where I found them before.
    The Ipod frustrates me greatly.

    The Sony Walkman is much better.
    The Sony Walkman allows me to connect to any computer and transfer files just like with a thumb drive. The files stay where I put them. Both the Ipod and the Sony have one good/common feature - they start again right where they stopped, which is important if you are listening to text audio.

    I also bought the Combo Accessory Bundle Kit for the Sony Walkman.
    Perhaps I will eventually use the chargers and extra cables, but the sleeve that protects the Sony Walkman has to be cut to gain access to the the buttons and audio plug. The rubber quality of the sleeve seems to be very high. The kit contains an arm band, but I prefer a fanny pack that I can put around my belly or chest....more info
  • I love my walkman!
    I bought an mp3 player mostly to download audiobooks from the library. The first one I bought was tiny, very complicated to use, and constantly "froze up", went back to the beginning and made me fast-forward hours into the book. The Sony Walkan is so simple, it "keeps my place" when I turn it off and has never "frozen up"....more info
  • Love it
    This is easy to use and very light weight. Would definately recommend to others....more info

    Amazing little product!! Easy to download, easy to navigate, and the battery life is a huge bonus....more info
  • Easy to use - not compatible
    I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He really likes the way it sounds and it is easy to use (he didn't like the controls on the I-pod). The only complaint he has is that he has "Sync" in his vehicle and the Sony is not compatible. ...more info
  • Excellent mp3/video player!
    I purchased this device after having lots of problems with Sansa products (Clip and Fuze). Sony Walkman reviews were consistently high, so I gave it a try. I have been very impressed.
    Music quality using a $10 pair of SkullCandy Ink'd is outstanding. Very crisp and clean, even at 128 kbps.
    Video playback is also very good. Display is sharp; no stuttering during playback. I have been successful using the free SUPER encoder set at VIDEO mp4;H.264/AVC;320:240;384kbps and AUDIO 44.1K;96kbps. For DVDs,use free DVD Decrypter or Smartripper and deselect all audio language streams except English). Smartripper allows you to rip to one big file, instead of ending up with 4 or 5 smaller vob files on your player. One little glitch - after encoding, I have an audio/video sync issue with downloaded zipped mp4 files from one source [...], but I can correct it during playback by forwarding a few frames, then reversing. After that, it's ok. DVDs encrypted using SUPER do not have that issue. I suspect it's how SUPER (and Any Video Converter) handles that sort of file, but just a guess.
    FM radio reception is good in the area I live in (DFW).
    Battery life seems to be strong, but I haven't put any time into tracking it. Somewhere I read that mp3 playback is 40+ hrs, radio 20+, and video 7+. With audio and video, lower bitrates extend battery life (at the cost of quality). Equalizer will also cost you a little more battery. I can go several days between charges (my kids can only get a few hours from their ipod battery before it needs a charge).
    Complaints: computer dependency and earbud quality. You must be connected to a computer to add/delete files, to manage playlists, and to charge the battery (unless you spring for an optional AC charger). You're SOL if you lose the USB cable. Earbuds are poor quality.
    Overall, a very functional and high quality device. I found mine on Amazon for $69 w/free shipping, which made it even sweeter. ...more info
  • Great Little Player
    I'm a first time MP3 player user, and, after a lot of research, decided to purchase this player over an iPod. First, the screen on this player is the same resolution as an iPod's and I heard good things about the sound quality of this player. the sound is even better if you use some Sony Studio Monitor MDR-V150 headphones Sony MDR-V150 Monitor Series Headphones with Reversible Earcups Also, you can simply use Windows Media Player to put music onto it. overall, this is a great product by Sony that I would reccomend to anyone....more info
  • JUNK
    Item easy to use, nice and compact. I purchased this because I thought it was compatible with my Sony Stereo system with MP3 docking station...Nope not even an accessory item. SONY made everything compatible with IPOD so scrap that idea. Earphones very uncomfortable so I bought a new pair of ear buds that were better and a new skin with screen shield to protect unit. Also along with this purchase I had bought a traveling charger kit. Guess I won't need any of this stuff because after using this SONY WALKMAN for a month it no longer works. It is a complete waste of money, maybe it is where I purchased it from, I don't know? I am a committed customer to Sony products and this just leaves me pretty sour! I will now buy an IPOD. Live and learn and spend money on JUNK!!!...more info
  • Drag and drop does not work
    When plugged into your computer for charging or downloading purposes, the MP3 locks into a screenshot of a circle, you cannot view whether your songs have successfully transferred until after you unplugged it from your pc. Also, every time you unplug the thing or turn it on it takes a minute to "create a library" - agonizing slow! Plus, it does not work with macs....more info
  • software not compatible with 64-bit windows vista
    although this product was highly touted by reviewers all over the net for its superb sound quality amongst MP3 players - which is really what i was lookin for in a music player, i could care less about it being able to play games, movies, have wi-fi, etc.. its operating software is NOT compatible with 64-bit Windows Vista ((((64-BIT)))). if you go to the sony support site and or talk to someone there they may say yes the player is compatible with vista-64, but may also forget to say that the loading software is NOT. some work arounds are offered on the sony website, but if you use I-Tunes like i do - you have got to make sure you get the ITUNEs PLUS labeled media....more info
  • Sony 8 GB walkman video mp3
    Very nice mp3 player, can play videos. Like the fact it didn't come with sonic stage program like the last sony walkman i purchased did, it was crap. Some reviews claim it synced all of there songs and albums onto their player, just go to the sync tab and turn off the auto sync option and you won't have that problem again. It is a nice,sleek, and compact unlike other brands that are twice the size and twice the price....more info
  • A---MAZING sound!!!
    This is my first Sony mp3 player and I have to say that it is the best one I have ever had the chance to use. It is very simple to use, you just need the USP cable (provided) and a computer with the recent version of Windows Media Player to synchronize your songs to the player. The sound is astonishing. The quality of this walkman is overall absolutely worth the price. 4G is almost too much and I personnally haven't managed to use all the space avalable. The only dark spot I found was that when you use the shuffle mode, it automatically starts with the last song you played of course, but then for some bizzare reason it plays always the same song in 2nd position, after which is shuffles randomly. So basically every time you turn the player on the next day, you know which song is going to be second, and it gets a little annoying after a while, but you can avoid the problem by re-shuffling everything after a while or simply skip the song. Overall a very good quality gadget!

  • Great sound quality but...
    This Mp3 has incredible sound quality. I would strongly suggest this to anyone who truly enjoys music. I personally have just two gripes with it... firstly there were many videos I wanted to put on this device. I was able to put them all on the memory, however only 1/5 of the videos were available for playback. Why? Because it simply did not support the features necesary to play most of them. However I was able to transfer them from one computer to another, I just couldn't play them on the player itself. My second problem is that it broke just two months after I got it. I was out playing airsoft with the Walkman in my pocket, it wasn't bumped, shot, or leaned on, but when I was done playing with my friends the screen had become a bright white light. I was not able to fix it with the troubleshooting guide and customer service coouldn't help it either. Fortunately the warranty was still active and I should get a new one in 7-10 days. The customer service however was very good and easy to use (though it was quite obviously based in India) and the only problem I had was when my stupid phone ran out of batteries, so then I had to call them back. Oh well....more info
  • Very Good Player
    This player worked beautifully right out of the box. I have a subscription music account, and it is wonderful to have a player that I can "borrow" music with until I decide I'd like to buy. I have had an iPod for several years now, and I do love it. But, I don't have the ability to try songs with it. As others mentioned, the earphones that come with the Sony aren't what they could be. I would have given the player 5 stars had it come with ear buds that made sense and had it come with a case. Finding a case for this player is not as easy as finding a case for the very popular iPod. It would have been nice for Sony to save customers these two steps. But, otherwise, I can't complain. Great sound, does what it says it will. I'm happy with it and definitely recommend it....more info
  • A perfect option for purely music.
    I have had this player for more than a month and I am completely satisfied with it. The menu is very intuitive. The dimension is pocket friendly, and the build is firm, stable. The battery has been superior so far, but I doubt it lasts 40 hours, let alone 45 hrs as advertised. Nonetheless, it lasts quite long. And for the sound, it is rare to find any better mp3 players than this.

    Keep in mind, however, I purchase this item because I want to have a device that can play music well only. I don't use it to watch video or view picture. Although the image is crisp and clear, I find the screen too small for these purposes. So you might want to look for other options if you want to do more than just listening to your music library, like me....more info
  • A must for the gym!
    I absolutely love this little mp3. I take it to the gym with me every day. It helps make working out seem like a walk in the park! The sound quality is amazing, as well as the diversity it offers. ...more info
  • nice sound/lousy earphones
    This unit has good functionality ; but , quirky to set up. The earphone plugs would'nt
    stay in my ears so I had to order a set of earphones. Overall, the sound is terrific. PeterC....more info
  • Great Product
    Owned the original version of the sony mp3 player and I loved it. Love this one as well!...more info
  • Limited audio and video formatsThe
    The Positive: Sleek and stylish design, very good sound quality, controls well designed and easy to use, crisp and clear screen, great battery life, easy to drag and drop MP3 files into folder on PC for loading onto Walkman, nice small size.

    The Negative: Supports a very limited range of audio and video formats. If your digital camera produces AVI or WMV video clips, the Sony won't play them. If you download a MV4 video from iTunes, the Sony won't play it. And trying to conver these formats to something that the Sony will play is a real hassle.

    Bottom Line: If you just want a good MP3 player, this is a great little product. If you were hoping to play a variety of audio and video formats, choose another player....more info
  • Audiobook listener
    I searched for a MP3 player that would be easy to use for listening to audiobook downloads from the library. I like the Sony, but still find it lacking in that if I want to go back to relisten to a section or accidently hit the reverse button, I have to go back to the start of the chapter. I purchased the accessory kit from Amazon, and the belt clip that comes with the kit is impossible. ...more info
