        Bought this for my husbands birthday and he loves it. His boss actually got one also shortly after seeing his. It's easy to use, upload, and has great sound. It also looks cool. He uses it all the time- in his car, on walks, etc. Definitely worth it and if you're not looking for the internet connection or complicated software, this is the way to go.

          I have been using the product for the past three weeks or so. The sound quality is great but the screen and the overall design and functionality need much improvement. The screen is already very much scratched and looks much worse than my Samsung Q3, which has been in use for over two years. The battery life is another weak point. There is no way this thing can last 30 hours on a single charge. I doubt if it can last 15 hours. To sum it up, the sound quality is great but everything else sucks. Is it worth it? No! Sorry, Sony. I have always liked your products but not this time.

              Comments about 8GB NWZ-E384 Series Walkman MP3 Player (Black):

              I bought this to replace a similar Sony MP3 player I bought in 2008, which I recently lost. That was a fantastic piece of kit, with unbelievable battery life.

              Thinking that since six years had past, I was expecting that Sony would have even better MP3 players today, for even better price. While the price has indeed fallen slightly, this MP3 player is unfortunately inferior to the previous one I had. There is no dedicated hold switch or volume rocker, and the controls aren't very tactile at all. Battery life is not as good as it used to be.

              Sound quality is great however, as you'd expect from a Sony product. That, and the ability to drag and drop files directly on the player (no "ITunes" needed) is still the reason why I'd buy a Sony MP3 player over an Apple iPod.

              Comments about 8GB NWZ-E384 Series Walkman MP3 Player (Black):

              It's very compact and the battery life is good. So far I have only used it for listening to audiobooks while driving with it plugged into the car's "Aux" input. It would get 5 stars if Sony had simply made it less annoying to turn on. It takes at least ten seconds to hold down buttons to turn it on which is totally lame, as others have said. Let's hope Sony puts out a software upgrade to fix this awful design. Once it's on it's easy to use or adding new media is also easy.
