Enjoy your favourite videos

Stunning 3” OLED widescreen
The X Series has a 3-inch touch panel OLED widescreen which produces clearer and more vibrant images than any other portable media player. It means you can view your favourite movies, YouTube clips or photos in all their glory.
Images look truer and brighter because OLED technology lets you see a wider range of colours. OLED offers a faster response time than standard LED screens which makes it great for watching sport or action packed movies. A high contrast ratio and 180 degree viewing angle means you’ll always see crisp, clear images. Plus OLED uses far less power than standard LCD displays meaning battery life is significantly improved.
Unmatched sound quality
The X Series is the best sounding WALKMAN® to date. Four audio technologies give you an unrivalled sound experience that closely matches what was originally recorded.
S-Master audio technology, currently used in high-end HiFi equipment from Sony, lowers distortion to keep the sound clear regardless of your volume settings. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine cleverly restores some of the high frequency signals that are lost during MP3 compression. Clear Bass gives you a deep, rich bass without distortion. Clear Stereo technology ensures that the sound does not leak from either channel.
Premium in ear headphones are included to ensure that all the audio technologies are maximised for the best possible listening experience. All this makes you feel like you’re with your favourite band in the studio - or experiencing a live orchestra in a concert hall.

Built-in noise cancelling
Because there is nothing more powerful and immersive than great music, Sony has also added Digital Noise Cancelling to the X Series WALKMAN®. Cancelling out up to 99% of ambient noise, you are left to enjoy nothing but the enhanced sound of your favourite tracks.
Noise Cancelling is built in to the X Series so there is no need for separate batteries or the hassle of charging noise cancelling headphones. The X Series even lets you choose your environment and includes an external input mode and adaptor for listening to in-flight entertainment systems.
For added convenience, the X Series can be controlled in two ways - from its touchscreen or by dedicated buttons on the top. This means it’s easy to operate when it’s in your pocket without having to look at the display and you can adjust the volume or change songs easily.
Easy scrolling makes finding
music and videos easy
Next generation video
Another great video feature of the X Series is chaptering. The X Series will analyse the video you are watching and create several chapters – similar to chapter selection on most DVDs - so you can quickly and easily get to the place you want.
The X Series scroll function lets you select the playback start point of your videos and can be used to browse through your album cover art to find your music. Scrolling also works on BBC iPlayer content, which you can watch on your X Series. Choose from over 400hrs of your favourite BBC programmes every week.
The X Series has full Wi-Fi connectivity so you can browse the web, search for music, download podcasts or watch clips from YouTube™. You can also download podcasts automatically to the X Series with a few simple touches of the screen. It’s the easiest way yet to get podcasts onto a WALKMAN®. Just select the podcasts you want and then how regularly you want to download them.
The X Series also lets you link from the music you are listening to straight to videos on YouTube. It’s simple to use. Simply click on the artist and then Direct Link to YouTube, to see videos of that artist or song.

In brief, the Sony is the better personal music player. The sound is better than any iPod available. The iPod Touch is the better "gadget" as it lets you add apps, games and browse the web in a relatively pain-free way. However, the iPod Touch really falls down when it comes to sound quality. The iPod Classic offers the best sound quality in the iPod line-up and is actually a cheap option now (a rarity for Apple!), but even the Classic can't compete with the sound from the Sony.
Of course, the Sony is far more expensive than the iPod Classic and only has a fraction of the capacity (32Gb vs 120Gb)... but it has solid state storage and is smaller and lighter than anything this side of a Nano. The Sony is also likely to age better. All Apple products look awful after a few years. They just don't wear well. The Sony is better built and not covered in too-scratch-sensitive materials. My iPod classic, which has never been outside its protective case, has plenty of scratches on it and I have no idea how it got them. And to my eyes, it doesn't wear those scratches well.
If an mp3/4 player with superb sound quality is your main priority, the Sony is the best option - if you can live with using Windows Media Player 11 and the Sony Media Manager software.
If outright capacity and price are your main factors, don't ignore the iPod Classic.
If it's gadget first, sound second for you - the iPod Touch is the one to go for.
I'm being totally objective here. I have been the happy owner of an iPod for four years now. I'm no fanboy, but I do like what Apple did in terms of usability. I was less impressed with the Touch only because it put music second to everything else - and although the UI is fantastic, though my priorities are different.
With four years worth of iTunes usage, I liked that I could keep using iTunes and easily transfer music to the Sony. If only the reality was as straight-forward as Sony would have you believe. Transfering about 20GB of music takes forever. I timed it against the same transfer for an iPod and the Sony takes 3x as long. I'm talking hours here! Once set-up, though, you would think it's OK. A one-off hassle. But no, so many tracks were not carried over. So now I have to populate Windows Media Player with my >100Gb of music, which is horrible. None of the album covers are carried over and a lot of metadata that iTunes added is ignored. I know there is no rule that MS and Apple need to inter-operate, but Apple have me locked in now and given that the iPod is the World's favourite personal music device, it really falls on all the other companies to make switching over easier than this. Otherwise, a lot of people will stick with Apple because they're easy to use and hard to move off.
I'm old enough to have owned the first Walkman Sony produced (the legendary WM2). It would have been nice to come home, but the Sony Media Manager ruins it - it's hardly better than the simply abysmal Sonic Stage of a few years ago.
The Walkman/music player gets 5 Stars. The wi-fi and browser gets 2 stars. The music management software gets 1 star. Overall, this brings the unit way down. It could have been a 5 Star review, but it isn't. Unfortunately for Sony, I'm sticking with Apple.
Music quality is great, it's the best I've ever heard on an MP3 player; although this is probably helped by the in-ear headphones which pump the music directly into your ear.
There are loads of little settings to fiddle around with to tweak the music, which is cool.
When it works, the touch-screen interface is very nice to use (but, see when it doesn't work below). It's really clear and bright, and it is fairly impressive.
Feels solid, all the buttons are well-placed. And the Hold button is really handy.
Podcasting - I had no idea this could be so useful. I've got music, comedy, spanish lessons and loads more stuff coming through to the walkman, which I can update using its wifi, or from my laptop and then copy them over. The podcasts suggestions that ship with the walkman are rubbish (actually they didn't work at all) but once you figure out how to subscribe using the supplied software that you install on your laptop it becomes really quite cool!
Once you've tuned the FM radio, there's no way of marking up your presets to say which stations are what - they stay as preset 1, preset 2 etc. I expected it do this automatically, either through RDS or through wifi somehow, but at the very least you should be able to manually add the station names, which you can't.
The interface, grrrrrrr, looks really nice when working; HOWEVER, it doesn't "work" all the time. There are times when you go into your album view and it just gets stuck for about 30 seconds and no amount of touching or sliding will get it to budge. I've only got about 10 gigs of music on there so I don't expect the memory to be having issues loading the album list. If this happens you have to sit there waiting for it to unstick itself, which doesn't look very cool when you're sitting on a bus. Once you've seen the iPhone/touch, you know how a piece of kit like this should be working - this is the benchmark Sony had to meet - and it just doesn't get there. My other main gripe with the interface is that the buttons often flash to show you've tapped it, but then nothing happens! This seems to happen a lot in the Web browser. There are some other odd things too, like if you're playing a song, and you flick the album cover to browse other albums, the walkman sometimes interprets another flick as "start playing" the new album, which is quite annoying as there's no way to go back other than back through the album view.
The web browser, well, it's tedious to say the least. The best way to deal with it is to store your web pages as favourites so you don't have to spend 10 minutes entering the URL every time. In fairness, once the webpage is loaded, you can size it to see more of less of it on the page, but then you go back to the issue of buttons flashing but not working. I could pick up my Gmail using it, but why bother?
I can live with the two gripes above because I don't use the browser that often, and you learn to live with the sticking screen by being a little more patient with it; however, the thing that really disappointed me was with the "album hierarchy". (I call it that because I can't think how else to). What I mean is, when you select the main music search screen you get the standard search options: song, album, genre etc. If you click on genre, you then get a list of songs - WHICH I DON'T WANT. What I want to see is a list of albums under that genre, and then songs. But there's no setting to allow you to do this. Is it not logical that after Genre people would want to see Albums??? I don't know, maybe I'm just a freak, but there at least should be a setting to customize this so everybody can be happy!?!
Artist Name is not displayed under the track list of the currently playing album (or through the search). This is fine if you are playing an album by The Kinks, say, because all the songs will be by The Kinks, but it's a fat lot of good when you're playing a mix album. I mean, come on, what planet are Sony on?? How can they possibly not know that in a mix album (of which there are MILLIONS, and which have been around for DECADES) the artist name is different for each song, and that people might want to see this so they can recognize the track?? Muppets.
You can only charge it through your PC/laptop.
My "bads" sound a lot worse that the "goods", but really I'm happy I bought this player - it just has a handful of niggles that mean it's not perfect, hence four stars. If Sony would release a firmware update to solve these problems, it really would become a great player, but at the moment if you're looking for a super-slick interface then it's the iPhone/touch you need, if you want great music quality then buy this. (oh, and if you want a web browser, buy a laptop)

It is brilliant and I believe the sound quality is far better than her i pod.
