When I bought this player, I was confident the audio fidelity would be excellent - and it is indeed. Sony's default headphones, IMHO, are always better than the competition's. (I use Sony's for all the players listed above just in case there was doubt as to comparisons.) The NWZ-A728 contains equalizer options as do all players but best of all let's you customize one of the settings for your own tastes.
The UI is very, very intuitive and best of all, it has HARD VOLUME BUTTONS!!! Why don't more manufacturers do this? I don't want to have to do multiple soft button presses to get to the volume - I just want to go UP and DOWN. Thank you Sony!
Video playback is very clear and the horizontal view is great eye candy. I wish it supported more formats like XVid but hey, I'm not going to rate it down for that. Battery life is very, very good as compared to my other players (with the exception of the iRiver).
I can't comment on the included software because I use Linux - Xubuntu 8.04 to be exact - and use freeware tools to manage my music and convert videos. At first blush, Xubuntu didn't see the player (and I suspect that's the case for any Ubuntu or Debian flavor). I ended up going over to the Kubuntu forums (kubuntuforums.net - look for a post by Jankushka) and you can follow his steps) to resolve the problem. (Note: Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) ships with libmtp 0.3.0 natively so this workaround won't be necessary once the release is stable.)
This player will end up replacing my Zen as my default device and the Nano is being retired permanently. If it had Ogg xupport and dynamic (custom) playlists like the Zen, I'd be in heaven but all-in-all, it is quite excellent. Highly recommend.
The Sony NWZ-A728 is quite possibly the best sounding mp3 player currently on the market. Sure, competitors such as the Cowon D2 perform better in terms of a flat EQ, but none of these other players pack the signature "Sony Punch". And none of these players bundle with ear-buds or headphones that sound as the good as the MDR-EX82's included with this walkman. So all in all, I can safely assure you that this is the best sound you can get "out of the box". Vocals are excellent. Clearbass comes as a welcome substitute to the "bloated" sound that megabass delivered. I find that the included buds provide enough fidelity to clearly hear the thrums of each cord on an acoustic guitar.
As for the player's construction, I couldn't be any happier. Unlike the Creative Zen, this player does not exhibit the least bit of "plasticy" feel. The weight of the player in my opinion is ideal. It feels substantial yet light enough to carry without difficulty. In short, this does not feel like a toy.
Perhaps the first thing you'll notice upon booting this player up for the first time is the screen's clarity. The included fifa video does a great job of showing off the player's 30 frames per second playback. I personally use a freeware program called Videora Ipod Converter to convert videos. All in all, I think the screen is beautiful. There are better offerings... but for this price segment, I think this quite alright. My only caveat with the screen is that it is made of plastic. I would have preferred glass but I guess a screen protector will have to do.
In terms of value, I'm a little iffy. The player was bought for 160 dollars. The silicone case was approximately 30 dollars. If you choose, you could buy the ac adapter for another 40 bucks. I'd say your average customer would spend about 200 dollars. 230 with the adapter and case. But the fact that the headphones don't have to be updated aids the value argument. I would say the fidelity offering is about 50 dollars worth ( senn px100 or akg k26p). So all in all, this player actually initially seems iffy in terms of value. But I guess after weighing in the value of the headphones included, it kind of makes sense.
I think most of the other points about this product are covered within the other reviews. I really don't think you can go wrong with this product. Since the initial warranty offering is a little risky. I would recommend logging onto [...] and purchasing a Sony authorized 2 year extended service plan which is $[...]. Hopefully, I can add to this review as I use the mp3 player more.
