When installing the software the option to agree or disagree with the EULA appears. I disagreed and canceled the software installation. I can still use Windows Explorer to drag-and-drop files. I thought by not agreeing with the EULA (and thus not installing the software) I lost the ability to convert video files but the option appears each time I transfer such files. It must be inherent in the player. See below for more.
Other reviewers say that the screen scratches easily. The player doesn't come with a case cover and I didn't want to pay $20 for one so I bought a pack of Body Glove WriteRight Universal e-Reader Static Cling Screen Protector, 2 Pack (9202401) and cut one out to perfect screen size. I can get 4 total but the first one I put on is holding firm.
I do like this player for playing audio. The screen is easy to see even in daylight and the player is really easy to navigate. Audio sounds good and video and pictures look good, too, but if you're buying this primarily to watch videos be aware that it's like watching them on the screen of a typical digital camera. I bought this mainly for playing mp3 audio but thought it would be worth a few extra dollars for the ability to view pictures and video clips.Read more ›
So far great battery life, very easy to use (esp. w/ media monkey), and a nice looking player. The directional pad could be a bit bigger, but that is a minor suggestion to a great sounding player at this price. Highly recommended.
Then my wife relented and she tried this player. First, she can see the display, an important consideration for folks our age. Second, setup is easy. Third, she can manage file transfers easily WITHOUT my technical assistance thus preventing our usual clashes over her tech problems that sometimes escalate to near homicidal levels. If you're married to a non-geek you know what I mean.
The player comes with ear buds but the wife doesn't like them so we bought some inexpensive extremely small batteried portable speakers that plug into the player. Ta da! Now my wife happily wanders our house, the player and the small speakers tucked into the pockets of her hoodie, encased in a small sound bubble of her current audio book.
Now I find this beauty at best buy and I snatch it in the spot. As an added bonus, the player sports speakers. Are you freaking kidding me? This is great. Though I got to admit they are kind of weak of course, but still strong enough to play in the shower.
The sound is great, and 8 gigs are packing lots of music. I just been testing the video player and I have no complaints, though I've been having some trouble with compatibility. It is supposed to play mp4 video but mine doesn't. What I had to do was convert the video to wmv and then use the included software so that it automatically converts to a compatible format. It won't play H.264 either.
That is easy to fix though. If you're ripping a dvd or converting a video, just make sure you do it to a wmv file, then use the "Content Transfer" sofware and you're good to go. The video looks pretty good in the player I must admit. Vibrant colors, flawless playing.
I noticed the battery charges really fast. I mean really fast and lasts a whole day of music playing and then some the next day.
I'm satisfied that Sony finally came to terms with Microsoft's DRM copyright protection.
IMPORTANT: Some here said that you can't fast forward in audiobooks or music, and that it does it very slow. That's not true, if you want to fast forward really fast, you have to pause the song/audiobook and it will fast forward. If you do it while in "play" it will forward slowly so you can listen to where you're at.
