Solid Long Lasting and Great Sound,
This review is from: Sony NWZE385 16 GB Walkman MP3 Video Player (Black) (Electronics)
I've had mine for almost 2 years and it still sounds great. I don't have a problem shutting it off, you just hold down a button to do it. If you do add video files the screen is crystal clear. However, the screen is tiny and does tend to get scratched easily. However, who buys a mp3 player to watch videos? If you aren't a snobby apple product owner and actually just want to listen to music this player is great. I bought two as presents and will continue using mine until breaks which I doubt will be anytime soon. The sound quality is great with a comprehensive EQ manager that can give you whatever sound you like the most. The automatic mood radio feature is great so if you wanna only listen to certain tempo, mood, style or whatever you want to call it you can fairly easily. The battery life is great and it hooks up easily to my car mp3 player port so I can listen in my car as well. There are better mp3 players out there I'm sure, but if you want a no nonsense bare bones mp3 player that plays mp3s that is more affordable than it's bigger name competition than this is one for you.

I have an older model from about 2 generations ago and it does not have a slot for a microSD card so I doubt this one does as well. Sansa usually seems to be pretty good in that regard but I haven't had as much luck with their MP3 players.

Question: Does this one hold your exact spot for longer than 24 hours?
My really old Walkman broke after years of loyal service and I listen to audiobooks. It was great because after a week or a charge, my spot was always held. The new model only holds a spot for 24-hours. After 24 hours or a charge, it resets to the main screen. Bookmarks are useless because it takes you to the beginning of a track.

When you say automatic mood radio feature (tempo,mood,style) , are you referring to the Sens me feature that Media Go applies to each track you download? Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you as I received an IPOD for a gift a couple of years ago and this thing has always given me HEADACHES. I just need something to listen to music while I work out. Thanks again.

Thanks for this post!!! I'm currently looking for another MP3 player. I have tried IPod's & they don't hook up to the stereo of my 2009 Ford Focus (sync ability in the radio). My question is will this one work? I don't wish to buy another MP3 player and have it not work. Waste of money!!! Please let me know

I have the older model 364 in black and as long as its plugged into a regular charger, it will play, but if I plug into the computer it will not. I've had mine now for almost two years and not a single trouble with it. I know it's several months later and probably too late but I hope this helps anyone else thinking about getting one of these.....
