The Sony 32GB F Series Walkman Video MP3 Player provides up to 36 hours of continuous music playback or up to six hours of uninterrupted video playback on a single charge. You can enjoy photos, album artwork and videos on the ultra-bright 3.5" color LCD touch screen display with 800 x 480 WQVGA resolution. Or, you can sing along to your favorite songs, while the lyrics to the latest hits scroll across the screen. The F Series Walkman behaves more like a tablet than an MP3 player. In fact, it supports Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity for streaming media. Plus, it has an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor capable of 1 GHz processing speeds. And, it supports Google Android 4.0 for access to apps and games from the Google Marketplace.

The F Series Walkman provides drag-and-drop file transfers for easy uploading of your music, pictures and video from either iTunes for Windows or Windows Media Player. The device also features Sony's exclusive S-Master MX and Clear Audio technologies, which include Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine. The technology is designed to restore the clarity and depth of digitally compressed music. Plus, with the integrated dynamic equalizer, you can select a preset genre setting or dial in your own with a custom EQ curve.

The F Series Walkman is loaded with accoutrements above and beyond most MP3 players. It has a built-in digital FM tuner, a clock function with alarm and an integrated microphone for voice recording. It even comes equipped with GPS and G-Sensors for better compatibility with the available apps. Sony also outfitted the device with their SensMe application, which automatically groups your music into separate channels based on beats-per-minute. That way, when you're relaxing you can listen to only relaxing music, and when you're working out, you'll only get up-tempo tracks.

          Comments about Sony 32GB F Series Walkman Video MP3 Player:

          This piece of equipment is rather poorly designed. I used it for two days before I decided it's not worth the money! During that time, it constantly locked up because of accidentally hitting the relevant button on the side or because of software issues.
          Sound quality is ordinary at best.
          I would not recommend this product!

            This is a great little compact MP3 player. It is very easy to use & moving your music onto it is a cinch. Though the price is a little high compared to other name brand MP3 players.

            Comments about Sony 32GB F Series Walkman Video MP3 Player:

            I bought the F Series Walkman after comparing to other MP3 players. I needed to have good music storage capability, efficient operating system easy to navigate, portability, internet access,and best sound possible. I did not need camera function, so for me, that was a non issue ( as it does not have a camera ).

            The F series is about same size as an IPOD, little longer, little narrower, and a little lighter. It is a slick device that operates like most Android smart phones in function ( other than calls ). Very fast response to all functions, and layout is familiar.

            The Sound is excellent. The FLAC support helps w/ playback of uncompressed audio signal, and the built in tone controls - equalizer is great for adjustments if you want them. Ripping Cd to the device is simple and very fast. Access to Sony Music Library is just like any of the others out there - vast.

            I have paired mine with Yamaha EPH 100earphones for casual use - I can't imagine anyone not being pleased with results using this set up.

            For critical,, but still portable listening - I have paired the F Series to a Fiio E 12 Headphone Amplifier ( also purchased from B&H )using a Fiio L5 Cable and my Etymotic ER4S in-ear headphones. They band together using bands supplied with the amplifier -- results are fantastic and about as good as you are going to get for truly portable audio. The headphone amp, jack and headphones are all available at B&H. ( have had the Etymotics for years and although expensive, I think the best sound possible ).

            The Walkman does all it is supposed to. I recommend it fully. Great device.

            Three minor negative points are :
            Power button is small and set almost flush, so you have to really feel for it to find it.

            The phones that come with it are not good. They Could have lowered the price of the device $ 20. and not include them.

            There is no protective case dedicated to it.

            Overall I am very happy with it / 4.75 stars.

            I bought this to use in my car which has an MP3 input. Since it has 32 Gb of storage, I was able to put over 120 of my CDs on it for playing in the car. Ease of use was ok, but as usual, the manual was not great. It was a lot of hunt and seek.

              I was a Walkman fan from way back but when Sony lost their way it seems and Apple led the pack, I made the switch and with some regrets as I felt the audio quality went the way of the waning Walkman.
              It's back and I believe it's better than ever- in fact I think it is the ultimate in portable audio and for those who can put the camera and the mobile/cell aside and enjoy just simply music- the F series Walkman delivers with ease and beautiful clarity.
              I just love it.
