A very nice player if a tad on the expensive side.
Very easy to install and get up and running, I had no problems with mine, just pop the CD in, follow the prompts and your good to go.
The player will play regular MP3 files, you can just drop them into the player as the computer reconises it as a "data storage device" just like a memory stick.
However to get the most out of it I would really use the Sony software supplied. The only downside to this is to get the most efficent use of space on the memory chip you are best converting all your old MP3 files into Atrac which gives you the same quality sound using half the space of MP3. The Sony software can do all this for you at the push of a button and new CDs are automatically saved in the correct format but to change your existing libary over can take a while. (Im not kidding I had about 250 CDs saved and it took my PC 8 hours to convert all the files - its no biggie though just set it running and go to work or whatever, come home and its all done).
Some other good points, I found the player really easy to use and navigate to the album/track I wanted to listen to, it plays all the standard features you would want, shuffle repeat etc. A lot of people seem to have really not liked the ear phones at all, now Im not a musical trained person but I found them fine, at the end of the day "Sony's" basic phones are better than most anyway so just try them. If you are really into your music and have a really good ear for sound quality then you may want to invest in a really good pair but I was fine with the ones supplied. Battery life is one of the best out there, if not "the" best and the player is compleatly skip free.
1gb of space is plenty of storage for the causaul daily user.

When i first read the reviews on this item I was slightly put off by the software that comes with it but i decided to go for it anyway because it was relatively cheep, small, and had a nice memory size (i stil cant imagine using 20gb)
when i recieved it through the post i quickly had a glance at everything then popped the cd into my pc. I then went ahead and installed it with the same error message popping up through out the installation. the installation was finally finished. i restarted my pc and opened up the sonicstage software to find it wouldnt work. I did the installation process about 5 times. "so i thought, i guess ill download sonicstage 3.4" only to have the same problem. I wouldnt mind if the user of the nwe-407 could drag and drop music files, but this is not the case. i then searched the internet for hours to try and find a cure. I then managed to find the support page on which read "urgent message for users of sony music software". Yes! apparently windows if you havent updated recently has some security patch that doesnt let you install the software. so if you get this problem download the overide program through the link on sonys support page.
The rest of the product is great even the software when you get it going (by the way dont use the cd software because it crashes when you got to transfer CD, get the 3.4 download)it transfers songs off cd which would be normally say 3.4 meg to a smaller 1.2, you can however make it better quality but there is no need "honestly". I also was suprised that it had the "group" feature so you can easily locate songs. But the best thing here has to be the battery life. last nite i fell asleep with it on and it still hadnt lost a bar on the battery display. The headphone I personally think are great.

I'm by no means an audiophile but I love my music and having ummed and arred about getting an ipod only to to find my operating system (Windows ME) wasn't compatible with i-tunes, I decided to opt for a Sony NW - E407 flash digital music player.
It's a cool looking 1 GB player (I chose black) with a stylish organic EL display and the sound quality is what you'd expect from Sony - very good.
I've only tranferred my CD's so far using Sony's ATRAC format rather than MP3 and i've heard MP3 sound is even better though you should note that you have have to convert MP3's via Sony's ATRAC format using the provided Sonicstage software. The new Sonic stage 3.0 works perfectly well also (i've heard there were problems with earlier versions)and the USB 2.0 ensures that music transfers at a rapid rate so dispell any worries you may have on that score. 'Sony Connect' (Sony's music download site) is also well presented and easy to navigate.
The main advantage over the ipod is the fantasic 50 hour battery life! as well as a 3 min quick charge that gives you 3hrs worth of play which is a great idea as i've so often realised that i'm low on juice just as i'm about to pop to the gym etc. And the fact that there are no moving parts whatsoever means that there's absolutely no skipping so you'll never experience anything but smooth music which is particularly good while you're at the gym or out jogging. It's also very light and comes with a clip (so Sony have obviously listened to the complaints about the NW - E99).
The headphones are short but come with an extension to lengthen them. I've heard a few moans about this i.e, "why didn't Sony just make it longer in the first place"! I'll tell you why!
