Sony NWZ-E383 Walkman

Pro's: Larger screen, more durable that Sandisk Sport Clip. Volume is excellent, easy setup and transfer of mp3 files using Windows 8. Fair price, good for gym, jogging, cycling.Read complete review

Cons: Outdated earphones (earbuds) switched them out for ones I use with my smartphone. On/Off and "Hold/Standby" feature a bit confusing not sure of the purpose of it. Couldn't find belt clip/case from Sony
so I purchased one from another manufacturer that had similar dimensions.No memory expansion slot which Sandisk Sport Clip has. All in all a decent product for the price and what I use it for.

I was so happy with this MP3 player in the beginning. However, after about 3 months it just stopped working. It started off by not holding a charge, now it won't turn on (assuming it's dead). But every time I plug it into my computer it doesn't charge. It's very easy and self-explanatory to use, but after a while it clearly falls apart, so don't waste your money on this product!

    She wanted something she could have that was easy to use, but didn't drain her cellphone battery. This fits perfectly. B&H had the perfect solution, at a great price. Shipping was right on time.

      Crashes too often

      By Andy

      from Texas

      Comments about 4GB NWZ-E383 Series Walkman MP3 Player (Black):

      Bought two of these for my 2 daughters last Christmas - they have each stopped working several times each requiring resetting and reloading media. I don't mind doing this for my personal ipod which is also not the best engineering but my daughters are young and more accustomed to devices working without a lot of tinkering.

          expensive mistake

          Comments about 4GB NWZ-E383 Series Walkman MP3 Player (Red):

          Purchased this January 14, 2015 as a gift. Followed simple instructions included. Problems from the start. Sony customer service response on every contact is borderline hostile and rude. In the past the name Sony on a product meant quality. However, this product is faulty and poor. Replaced with a Sansa which cost less and is a more expensive product.

            The product operates just the way it is advertised. It has great sound quality and is a less expensive option than Apple. B&H's handling of the order is what really impressed me, incredibly fast and hassle-free!! Keep up the good work guys!

                  Works great. I love the color and its functionality. Easy to upload music from a Mac or PC - just drag and drop. Easy to play back, too, and I love that you can leave this device playing and charge it at the same time (a feature missing from the 4G iPod Mini).
