3 out of 5 eggsStill deciding

Pros: Display easy to read, good sound quality,fast menus, good storage.
Service from Newegg: Excellent. Very fast delivery. Excellent condition upon delivery.

Cons: Menus take a bit of getting used to, navigation controls to close to each other, makes navigation difficult. Overall size a bit small

Other Thoughts: I have large hands so that does not help with the growing trend of small, I am still in the learning curve of discovering all the players functions so my rating of 3/5 might very possibly go up.

1 out of 5 eggsgood for 7 months

Pros: Was great while it worked. I used my gfs nano for a while and liked having an mp3 player for the gym. Im not a huge apple fan so i bought this walkman. it sounded great, easy to use, music transfer interface as low key and didn't take up alot of pc resources. Battery life was terrific.

Cons: Died after 7 months of mild use. I only use this thing to go to the gym and study. Its never been dropped, seen water or had any other type of trauma. I bought a silicone sleeve and arm band for it and always used it while wrapped around my arm.

by "died" i mean the audio distorts now after volume setting 15.. Anything higher than that and audio gets super distorted.

Other Thoughts: I have an old classic Ipod 20gb bought in the early 2000s(not even a color screen) that still works to this day. Again im not an apple fan, but they make good mp3 players. Will see how Sony's RMA service is. I'm guessing its not impressive(got censored here). Will not buy Sony again if their RMA service sucks.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat w/ a few caveats

Pros: Don't have to use iTunes or any other proprietary lame software to transfer data
Fairly nice build quality
Sound quality is better than ipod
Nice battery life (I typically get 35ish hrs on 1 charge w/ brightness turned down)
Quick cold startup, instant hot startup
Good FM reception for a portable device
FM recording works flawlessly
Pretty easy to use content transfer - transferred some divx w/o issues
Video playback is ok
Menu options are fairly intuitive and useful

Cons: - Shuffle all doesn't remember where you left off when it powers off. So pretty much everyday when I start my shuffle playlist again, I end up hearing the songs I did yesterday. Annoying. I could understand if it happens after a sync, but every power cycle???
- Recently, I've been getting a few odd sound glitches randomly when listening. Its pretty rare but happens enough that I remember.
- External speakers are ok, but be prepared for low volume tinny sound. Its ok if you have nothing else.

Other Thoughts: - Pretty good overall, knocked off an egg for the shuffle playlist issue (even more annoying because I know its not that hard to implement...).
- As with most bundled earbuds, these are kind of lame.

Also considered the Zune HD 16GB, but since this Sony was almost 1/2 the price at the time, Sony won.

Bottom line: good player with a few flaws.
Recommended: Yes, with reservations

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent player

Pros: Best one I've owned so far. Spilled a drink on it the other day and was able to easily take it apart for cleaning. Works as new.

Cons: I think the buttons are too sensitive. If you have it off and in your pocket, it can easily turn on - so I recommend keeping hold on at all times.

Other Thoughts: I hate tiny screws.

4 out of 5 eggsMildly Disappointed

Pros: The S series has more features than my previous A series. Still the best earphone jack out there in my opinion. My first MP3 player jack lasted less than 1 year. My iPod gave me just past the warranty. My Sony A series gave me 4 years.

Cons: FM is great... outdoors, but poor reception indoors. Unfortunately they left the phenomenal bass with the A series. I wear high quality earphones for hours a night. Many bass settings and other settings were missing from the S series. It wasn't like they had to invent them, just keep them.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little player

Pros: Good size, speakers come in handy for sharing music with friends, easy to manage music - drag and drop, battery life

Cons: required help getting packing open

Other Thoughts: Got this as a gift for my niece. She has been using it for 2 months now and is still very happy with it. She had an old 2GB player. Likes how easy and how much music she can put on it. Frequently uses the speakers with friends and still gets good battery life. She was surprised how thin it was and likes the size. She didn't want a tiny player and this one is big enough she can still find it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: easy to add music,pictures, and videos. sound it really good stock ear buds are not the highest quaility but then again the companies want you to spend the extra $$ and great ear buds, very sturdy i bought this for my wife who really isn't very tech savy she has no problems operating it and she hasn't even read the manuel yet

Cons: power button is touchy so remeber to click the hold button after you turn it off, and te option to listen to music with the built in speakers...why?

Other Thoughts: i used to have a walkman back in the day of cassete players and we thought they were the grooviest thing around, i'm glad sony has kept up with the tech of portable music

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MP3 Player

Pros: Easy transfer with the included software. Sounds great through a good pair of headphones.

Cons: Wish the buttons were back lit, hard to see when driving at night. They could have given the buttons a different tactile feel which would help

5 out of 5 eggsMy 1st MP3

Pros: 16 GB, so far I've only put about 11gb on music only. I bought this to do an Ironbutt ride. Used it for 19 continuous hours, it didn't miss a beat. Now I use it when I cut my grass, mostly FM. Its been a few weeks science its been charged and still shows 1/4 charge left. Very happy with it.

Cons: I didn't buy a case for it.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal

Pros: great player with great sound video play back is also great takes awhile to convert larger vids but it does the job. easy to set up software is easy to use. headphones are ok

Cons: well the headphones are average but i mainly play through my car stereo so is not a big deal

Other Thoughts: even tho its 16 gigs would have been nice to have an sd slot that way all i would have had to do is slide in my sd card from my last mp3 player and been able to load the songs but once again no big deal
