Excellent! Yes, I am very pleased with my new 4gb Sony Walkman. I am not a big fan of modern technology but I found this device a success even for me. Once you get used to the controls its actually not to difficult to navigate your way around the operating system. Indeed the more I use it the more impressed I am at how logical it works. Prior to purhase I was anxious about transferring files from the computer to the device, but it immediately `sync-ed' and the whole process was not that onerous. It even copies over the album covers, also the screen size is just about right for viewing, even for a 46 year old with glasses! My son has a very similar apple device, (I think it's the nano version) and its surprising how similar in size and layout the two machines are. The big difference is of course price. The Sony is about half the cost of the apple! However as far as I can tell there is no difference in quality. There have been questions over its volume, and yes it can seem a bit low or underpowered, but I would suggest that Sony have carefully regulated the volume so that its not over powerefuI to cause damage to one's hearing. I mostly play it through a Belkin FM transmitter anyway and after a minor glitch it plays straight through to the FM on the car radio. I would recommend this Sony to anyone looking for a solid, reliable alternative to the `all-conquering' apple nano. If I had to do it again I would probably get the 8gb version rather than the 4gb.

A lot of people have reviewed this product previously so I will keep this one as short as possible and try to add something reasonably new if possible. This MP3 is a great piece of equipment for the price. In previous reviews however people have complained about;
a. The volume does not turn up loud enough and;
b. It is too easy to press the sensitive control buttons when it is in your pocket.

I think my Walkman must be an updated model because within minutes of switching it on I had found the setting that turns the pre-set maximum volume control off and it will now play at at a volume perfectly adequate for a product such as this. The volume and quality of sound is at least as good (if not better) than the far more expensive players my son and daughter both own. Any more and the music would start to distort.

With regards to the complaints regarding this MP3 being far too easy to turn on/off when putting it into your pocket etc. then again I think mine may be an updated model as this one has a simple 'hold' switch on the side and when this is operated none of the other buttons will function until it is turned off again.

If these two negative points were putting you off buying one of these Sony Walman's then you have no need to worry as it would appear Sony have taken note and rectified them.

Other than the above I can only agree with all the positive points about this product which have been written previously and it is without doubt worth every penny of the money I spent on it.

The only problem with the product is that I have been unable to download the music transfer software from the MP3 onto my desk computer. I have had no problem downloading onto my laptop, however. That said, I am quite pleased with the player itself. It performs as good as I would expect for a Sony product, and does exactly as it says on the tin. The reproduction is excellent and although I would have no hesitation in recommending the product, I would have much preferred the download of the software to have been via a disc provided in the box.

My previous music player looked like a packet of cigarette papers and was so fiddily to operate. I could not believe how quick and easy this Sony was to get going. Having successfully loaded my tracks on to it, the quality of sound is excellent. Very pleased.

I bought this because I wanted to have the option of listening to the radio. The sound quality is good and it's easy to operate although its frustrating having to open a folder on the computer every time I want to check something - I still haven't discovered how to go back to the track in was listening to when I turn it back on. The bookmark facility simply creates a list which it then plays. That explains the 4 stars.

Ordered this walkman after learning of my friends Ipod experiences.

Wanted something simple, reliable and easy to use. This is exactly
what I got and it looks good too! Sound quality is also very good
to my ears.

Didn't take long to figure out how to get it going and it's so easy
to manage the music content.
