I just bought one of these to replace my tired old Zen MP3 player. This Walkman is an amazing little piece of kit.
It's so light and compact that you hardly know it's there, yet the build quality is everything you might expect from Sony.
The sound quality is just brilliant. Everyone who has one says that the sound is streets ahead of the ipods - and it's true. Once you've heard the rich detail and balance delivered by the Sony, the Apples will seem poor in comparison.
The screen is small, yet has incredible detail. One of the big plusses is that you can effortlessly download programmes from the bbc iplayer to watch on the go - a treat.
Beautiful and intuitive interface(just think Nikia phone), great battery life, and cool styling. Awesome!
