(This arrived VERY quickly. One day I think.)

This is my 1st mp3 player. I have made do with using my mobile phone or listening to things (music and spoken messages) via my laptop. It is a pain to keep transferring music to my phone every time I get a new one, and my laptop is not that portable, plus I have just discovered Terri Savelle Foy and wanted to listen to her recordings regularly.

I am really pleased with this and wish I had got one sooner. It looks good, it is really light, it worked, the buttons are easy to become familiar with, the screen is clear, the quick charge option is a great bonus, also the clip is not pre attached which means you do not have to use it if you do not want to - you can attach it in either direction (so that the clip end is toward the usb side or toward the wire. I put it on the 'wrong' way 1st and so when I went to un-clip it I kept pressing the the pause button. Pulling the clip off and turning it 180 degrees sorted that though.

Pads for the earpieces are not supplied. The in ear earphones are good but a bit big for me so I will probably swap them but that is not a major issue.

I hope I do not lose the cap for the USB side - this is a flaw with this type of device generally... I like having something good that is not made by Apple!

I am not keen on charging in via PC only so also bought a USB mains charger. I have not tried it but expect it to work fine.

Reasons for giving it 4 stars not 5:

- When I plug the mp3 player into my laptop it does not recognise it, neither does Windows Media Player. But since I can drag and drop music into it using Windows Explorer I am fine with not being able to sync WMP with the device. I am aware that the issue could be with my laptop not the device.

Yes, it's inexpensive, but unfortnuately it shows. It feels really flimsy, especially the cap to cover the usb connector. It's not what you expect from Sony at all.

The main button also feels like it could break at any moment, and that's before the fact that the "back" action actually moves "forwards" through the menu, and vice versa.

On top of that,I obviously got a defective model, as after less than a week of use (about half an hour a day) it completely froze up, with none of the buttons working and a loud buzzing noise coming throught the headphones. Yes, it was fine after pressing the reset button, but I don't feel like carrying a pin around for the next time it happens, especially for a brand new player. It's going back.

I realise that it's not fair to rate the item based on a faulty model, so the two stars is based purely on when the player was working. The fact that it broke after a week just added insult to injury.

Going back to Samsung; their similar-priced mp3 players are of a much higher quality.

I was perfectly happy with this little unit to begin with. Sound's great (if a little on the quiet side), and it seems nicely put together.

Then, halfway through my commute on the train, the it froze. No buttons worked, could not even turn the power off, it just blasted a loud buzzing through the headphones.

I waited for the battery to run out, then tried again. All fine for 15 minutes then the same thing happened.

So, I returned it and had it replaced. 30 minutes into my first use and the same thing happened again.

I've seen the same problem mentioned here by other customers, so it seems to be a common fault with this model. As such, I really wouldn't advise buying one.

Ilove it, easy to control, easy to download music from your computer.
you just plug it in via the USB which is part of the MP3 player.
Charges the same way. Sounds fantastic.

this product was a xmas pressent and I loved everything about it until I actually took it outdoors to find out that it is just not loud enough! good point: long battery life, easy navigation system, charges quickly, looks cool, light and crisp sound but I can hear every treadmill at the gym and can speak to anyone with it on without shouting! even the lightest wind in my hair overpowers the volume! not good for me! its going back.

Poor quality. Too chunky to use in the gym. Poor quality sound. Very fiddle controls. A let down from Sony.

I don't go out without this. I've had it for a number of years now and its serving me well. The only annoying thing is the zapping function. Its totally useless! Why would you just want to listen to snippets of your favourite songs? On the whole a great product.
