Score 9.0/10
Good points:
very easy to load using windows 7 & windows media sync - navigation good once familiar with keys - clear screen - ear plugs ok ( i prefer over the ear type ) - very light so need to be careful where you put it.
Bad points:
things do not always go where you would expect - if the album you have loaded does not appear in the album list then look in the other options - some have said you cannot see battery indicator when charging i have found that by selecting safe to remove and leaving device connected it becomes visible

Laura,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this for my partner for christmas, I was looking for a simple MP3 for him as he wouldn't use it otherwise. It is great and with a little support he can use it OK. The sound is good and is mainly used on our house with a 'speaker' pillow very successfully. Good value for money all round.
Bad points:
navigating the music menu can be a little clumsy.

Richard, Tenby I'm looking for something

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Can see what you have in varioous categories
Bad points:
Ear plugs good for riding on bus (no sound leakage) but prefer to use on ear headphones I also bought for comfort as maybe my ears are wrong shape but whereas in ear phones don't leak sound the on ear phones do. When using on ear phones have to have volume at 10 whereas in ear have to listen at 16 so presumably more power used for in ear phone plugs which doesn't make sense but maybe the Sony on ear phones are just better quality
