Rated 5 out of 5
by GOODorBAD Good
I have had this for two years so far and i think its way better than an Ipod. The color of my mp3 is black from which i got it at a store(Dont remember what store). Ive filled about half of my storage with a lot of music (583 songs). The battery life is great on my mp3 (if brightness is on low and volume on an average of 10). Plus I dropped my mp3 player so many times it still works. Nothing is broken on it so far and i might as well stick with mp3 players and not Ipods.

Rated 4 out of 5 by good nice mp3 player
this mp3 player sounds good. and is a great value for the price.
it appears almost every mp3 player review someone will say that the stock ear buds need to be replaced for some good quality ones. well i thought the ear buds sounded great but when i tried a pair that came with my inno xm player the sony's sounded lacking in the bass department.
so if you get these and you don't hear enough base for your taste just try some different ear buds they really make the player sound better.
the best way i have found to transfer music is to convert everything into the wma format and just drop the songs into the player software. Making play lists is possible but not as easy as it should be. i have givien up as it seems i make duplicates on the all song list. frustrating
down side is that you cannot delete songs on the player from the player that has to be done on the computer. you cannot listen while it is charging. if you are getting a sony docking speaker you may want to see if you can listen while it is docked and charging. it would seem like you should but i kind of have my doubts that it would.
i wanted a cheap player that could do video and mp3 and have a long battery life and the ability to listen to fm stations. this does everything i wanted.
knowing sony has a huge part of their business invested in music you would think this would be one of the areas sony would be awesome at. it is not an awesome player it just does the job very well for the price paid.
ps picture quality is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cowboy NOt satified with this
I bought this walkman and was initially very happy with it. It was a simple piece, easy to use and sleek and light weight. I used it for 3 months and then realized that except for the power button, no other buttons work. When I contacted the customer support, they told me that I have to pay $29 to replace the parts or fix it though it was under warranty. Most of the products I have is sony and this experience has shattered my trust on the crnad and customer service by Sony

Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed2828282828 VERY DISAPPOINTED WASTE OF MONEY
I was greatly pleased at first, but after a week of use, the only screen I can get says "Every moment has its music." Re-installed the driver several times, computers will not even recognize it as a hard drive. There is no re-boot button. I chose this model because I HATE Apple products. After this, SIGN ME UP FOR AN IPOD. Never thought I'd say that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragonzeye15 Absolutely Love This Old Thing
I have had mine (a red one) for 4 and a half years now. My parents gave it to me for Christmas in 2009 and I absolutely could not be more pleased with the durability and sound quality. Although a cat we had unfortunately chewed the original earbuds and left only one side working, I let a few guys in my 7th grade class borrow them before that happened (I'm in 10th grade now) and they told me that it had GREAT sound quality- they loved the earbuds that come with the Player.
While my Player is old now, it is still in pretty great condition with minimal damage considering its age and frequent use. It has never cracked or broken at all, and the only damage it has at this point is the screen's a little scratched and the red exposes dots of silver on the corners. It has AMAZING durability. I refuse to take other products due to how fragile they are and thus they can't last any time at all.
The only problems I've ever had with mine is the fact that I've never been able to get any videos to play on it. I have successfully downloaded the vids, but they wouldn't play. It could be something that I was doing wrong rather than the product itself, lol.
And I've only experienced other problems over the last two days-- I think the battery is finally dying for good. It seems slow and stuck all of a sudden while it used to be really fast, and also it went from 100% charged to 1 bar out of 4 in less than 5 minutes. But it HAS lasted a really long time, so a little dead battery shouldn't be an issue to complain over :3
I love it so much that I'm hoping to buy a second one now :3
