    Summary:
    This is not a bad player, but there are some very annoying quarks. However, it is significantly cheaper than the iPod Nano. Plus, unlike some players, the case does not feel like it is cheap or will easily break. I have used the device for a month and have not noticed any quality issues.

    Note: I use this for listening to music at work. I cannot comment on how the unit handles podcasts or audio books.

    Good
    - Feel solid
    - Small and light
    - Bright screen
    - Good sound quality
    - Get good reception on the FM radio
    - Can handle playlists of over two thousand songs
    - Random mode seems to truly play the songs randomly (some players do not seems to truly randomize the song order)
    - Can return to a playlist were you left off after listening to the FM radio for a while
    - Can play unit for multiple days without recharging the battery
    - Charges quickly

    Bad
    - Cannot turn off the player. It will only turn off when left idle for 24 hours.
    This is a big issue which impacts the battery life if you do not use the device heavily. Do not expect to use this device for a few hours every week and still expect it to last 24+ hours of usage.
    - When left idle for 24 hours until can no longer resume playing the pervious song.
    - Have to learn the Sony media player (Media Go)
    - Cannot integrate with iTunes (despite Sony's description of the unit). The Sony media player (Media Go) can read iTunes files however
    o Not those AAC files purchased from the iTunes store.
    o Cannot import use iTunes features such as autofill
    - Cannot customize radio present numbers. They are sorted in the order they are found on the dial.

    Comments about Sony 16GB E Series Walkman Video MP3 Player (Black):

    It is fast with good battery life.....but you CAN NOT DELETE music (a song or anything) without plugging it up to a computer. That means if you get tired of something you are stuck with it. I am sure it has something to do with tracking music rights. Would I buy it again....no. Too much of a hassle.

      Comments about Sony 16GB E Series Walkman Video MP3 Player (Black):

      Was attracted to the long battery life compared to previos Walkman models. They took two steps BACKWARD though by:
      -not a MSC (Mass Storage Class) device which behaves like a thumbdrive. Instead it gets recognized as a MTP device which requires special software to load files such as iTunes or Microsoft Media Player. Terrible way to do things.
      -Uses a PROPRIETARY USB connection so if you want to charge or access it from more than one location, you are buying a spare cable. Previous models of Walkman used the MINI USB which is very universal. Horrible decision by Sony.

                  If you need a basic MP3 player with outstanding sound quality & no frills, this is your baby. I think the lack of a touchscreen is a bonus; I've had MP3 players both with an without touchscreens, and I've come to the realization that for listening to music, you're just better off with buttons. It's just easier to navigate. Anyway, I love this player

                  Really good sound, but as stated, only holds 14GB (and you have to delete the setup file to achieve that).
                  You do receive a pair of great sounding earphones that would probably set you back $40-50 alone.
                  Battery life is very good also.

                      Good, but 14GB, not the usual 14.7GB.

                      Usually 16GB means 14.7, but not in this case. Comes in a 14GB flat. A bit of a let down there. But the walkman comes with a good set of earphones that would prob be worth $40-50, so that is a bonus.

                      overall is good, would help with a protective outer rubber, plastic cover to protect from drops and the like. thanks

                            Summary:
                            This is not a bad player, but there are some very annoying quarks. However, it is significantly cheaper than the iPod Nano. Plus, unlike some players, the case does not feel like it is cheap or will easily break. I have used the device for a month and have not noticed any quality issues.

                            Note: I use this for listening to music at work. I cannot comment on how the unit handles podcasts or audio books.

                            Good
                            - Feel solid
                            - Small and light
                            - Bright screen
                            - Good sound quality
                            - Get good reception on the FM radio
                            - Can handle playlists of over two thousand songs
                            - Random mode seems to truly play the songs randomly (some players do not seems to truly randomize the song order)
                            - Can return to a playlist were you left off after listening to the FM radio for a while
                            - Can play unit for multiple days without recharging the battery
                            - Charges quickly

                            Bad
                            - Cannot turn off the player. It will only turn off when left idle for 24 hours.
                            This is a big issue which impacts the battery life if you do not use the device heavily. Do not expect to use this device for a few hours every week and still expect it to last 24+ hours of usage.
                            - When left idle for 24 hours until can no longer resume playing the pervious song.
                            - Have to learn the Sony media player (Media Go)
                            - Cannot integrate with iTunes (despite Sony's description of the unit). The Sony media player (Media Go) can read iTunes files however
                            o Not those AAC files purchased from the iTunes store.
                            o Cannot import use iTunes features such as autofill
                            - Cannot customize radio present numbers. They are sorted in the order they are found on the dial.
