Jimmy, Symington

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good product and exactly what I was looking for. Judged it against the ipod range but based on quality (sound & display ) it was way ahead of the ipod classic. I know the Classic has a far greater capacity but I was more interested in video quality and sound. Also Classic was double the price which in my opinion couldn't be justified Plays both mp3 and wma
Good all-rounder for the money

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use.
Good display.
Bad points:
The sound could go a touch higher- you miss little subtlelties on certain tracks.
On random mode, when you switch it off and then back on, it reverts to the original track playing BUT then re-starts a random cycle and you tend to end up listening to items that you've only heard very recently.

Manufacturer's Description

First-ever Walkman® Video MP3 player with built-in Stereo Speakers: Share music anywhere
8GB, Built-in Stereo Speakers, 2.4" colour LCD and FM radio

Built for sharing music
Our first-ever Video MP3 player with built-in Stereo Speakers, the S Series Walkman® lets you share music with friends and tune into FM radio everywhere you go. A larger 2.4” QVGA colour LCD screen gives razor sharp video, photos and album art – and in widescreen.

No restrictions with open format
Open format means no matter where your music is stored, or what format it’s in (WMA, MP3 and AAC (non-DRM only)), you can transfer your entire library onto your Walkman® just by dragging and dropping it from Windows Media™ Player 11, iTunes® or Windows Explorer. It’s a cinch!

Experience all your music in stunning sound quality
You get superb sound quality from Walkman® thanks to three built-in audio technologies: Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and DSEE digital sound enhancement. They all work in harmony to bring you a listening experience as close as possible to the original sound, just like being at a live performance.

Share your music with friends
Share your all your favourite MP3 music anywhere with built-in Stereo Speakers – at the park, on the beach or just on the move. Packed with the latest Clear Audio Technologies, the new S Series Walkman® delivers a more natural clearer sound with rich balanced bass that you can listen to out loud.

More listening choice with FM
The freedom of a built-in FM Tuner lets you chop and change between music and video libraries and your favourite radio shows. With 30 preset channels, you can tune into all the top stations – and find more of your own – to give you even more choice over what you want to listen to.

Built-in voice and FM recording
When you need to take notes, or want to record your favourite radio show, just flick on the voice recording function with built-in microphone and let Walkman® do all the hard work for you. Record vocals and speech in mono, then playback anytime.
