Verified Purchase
[Edit: Upgrade from 3.5 to 4.4 stars; see below]

After my poor experience with the Phillips GoGear mp3 player (reviewed here last week), I thought I'd see what Sony can do with an mp3 player.

I bought their first (excellent) FM walkman in 1980 but haven't used one of their portables since. I am in general a Sony fan, and my 1986 Trinitron is still running like new. Gotta love that kind of quality! But do they still have it?

First, the good:

-Excellent battery life: 30 hours for music, and it does get close to that if you don't do much scrolling. Nice.

-Lots of gigs for a c-note: about 6 bucks per gig, once you realize that it's only 14.4 gb. I hate the way companies do that, btw. Don't tell me I'm getting 16 gigs and then give me ten percent less. Be honest! Stuff like that loses customers, savvy ones at least. {Edit: 9/16/11. For whatever reason, this now costs 50% more, so it's now exactly 10 per gig...no real bargain at the price.)

-Good sound...but with that traditional Sony eq curve: very flat. I've had a few Sony receivers and cd players and tape decks over the years, and they are all very flat across the ranges. This makes for nice tight bass and decent mids, but the top end is always a little compressed and lacks shimmer and overtones. Still, a solid tone, not tinny.
And seeing as most users choose mp3 files at either 128kbps or 192kbps (I'd recommend the latter if you play this through a car or other decent full-range stereo), there's plenty of compression already, so no huge loss. Using 320kbps or wav files, which this unit does support, will result however in some noticeable loss of shimmer and breathing room for the high frequencies.

-You can use folders, saves a lot of scrolling time.

I almost hate to give this thing only three stars because it has great
sound and hardware features. One the other hand the Sony Windows installer is so bad
it deserves negative stars. But there is a workaround - just use simple drag and drop,
and don't even run the Sony install or media software on your windows machines.

Since Sony's famous root kit fiasco (Google "sony rootkit lawsuit")
infected thousands of customers computers via anti-consumer software,
I should have known better than to ever
let Sony software run on my PC. But I wanted to get my new MP3 player to
working fast, so I followed Sony's instructions. Bad idea!!! They want
you to plug the Sony into a USB port and then run the install
software that's already in the Sony. I tried this on my old XP (SP2)
machine, and the Sony installation tried to "upgrade" my windows Media
player. There was no benefit to me for this "upgrade", Sony's
"engineers" we apparently too lazy to design an installer without this. Or
maybe they're still trying to infect their customers with rootkits.

Anyway, the install of the new MS media player failed, and in the deal
corrupted my old MS-media player. Since I primarily use VLC media
player the was just just an annoyance, not a fatal problem - but now my
old XP PC has no MS media player. Thanks, Sony :-(

Being stubborn (and a geek) I then decided to examine the Sony MP3 player a
bit more carefully on my work Windows-7 machine. The Sony mounted as a
USB device named "Walkman", but instead of just running Sony's toxic
installer again, I poked around in their file system and found
the music folder.

I've only had this puppy for a day, so I can't comment on the very important subject of its reliability. Also, I don't have much interest in using the Walkman for video replay, so I don't have much to say about that, either. But my first impression is favorable. The design is sleek, the controls are intuitive, the interface is efficient, and at 16GB the storage capacity is as large as you'll get in a sub-compact flash drive player. The FM radio tuner is surprisingly sensitive.

The obvious point of comparison is to the iPod Nano, which also comes in a 16GB version. The Walkman is a bit wider, thicker, and heavier than the Nano, but it's also a bit shorter. There are three big differences in my view: the Walkman has a radio, it has much better audio quality and it's significantly less expensive. To me those differences are absolutely decisive, especially the difference in audio reproduction: It takes the Sony to make you realize how truly mediocre iPod sound is.

If you want this thing primarily as a sub-compact MP3 player for listening to music I can recommend it based on a brief acquaintance so far. I'd also recommend springing for a really good set of earbuds (Shure, Ultimate Ear, and Etymotic are among the better producers). The earbuds shipped with the Walkman or an iPod are pretty miserable.

First off this is an extremely great value. A 16gb for less than a hundred bucks? Apple may be great but sony smashes them in value. This player sounds fantastic and it is very easy to use. It is slim and compact and feels very sturdy during use. The tactile buttons don't stick and the dedicated volume buttons are great for turning up the juice in your pocket without taking it out. It syncs effortlessly with both my computers (XP and Vista) and adding audio is simple.
There are a few drawbacks. First off Sony should be held accountable for their obvious false advertising regarding the battery. The product advertisises 30 hours of playback but a few months of use has yielded only about 18-20. Still not bad but not as advertised. Check out the other reviewers as they concour. Also the screen is a scratch/smudge magnet. After only a few weeks of extremely casual use my walkman has scuffs and scratches. they don't affect operation but it makes me nervous about the longterm lifespan of this product. A small minor complaint. Im a huge fan of album art and while this player allows you to make the art fullscreen it drops back to regular size the moment the screen dims out. The Ipod touch has the sony here.
Still overall a fantastic, especially is you are just looking for a full-featured, high-quality audio player.
