Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Stylish and very tactile
Bad points:
very complicated trying to put music on to device, software not compatible with windows vista and windows seven, tried for about an hour to put an album onto walkman, it just merged the tracks with other albums got very frustrated, The smaller,cheaper MP3players are alot easier to load just drag and drop format.

Good points:
It's good but it's dated, now. There's no compatible speaker/charger box. My fault, though; I should upgrade.
Bad points:
None, really. Better models available.

Purchaser Music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
i find this product very easy to use and is quick to respond and the range of features is varied and easy to negotiate. its very light which is great for portability and at the time of purchase i found it price was reasonable. i woild recommend this product to freinds
Bad points:
i think the sound quality could be improved & the user should be able to select more variation on its sound settings. the battery could definitley do with a longer life span before it has to be recharged again as that is a nuisance. the desiign is good but the screen is very difficult to read in daylight and it has to be constantly shielded to be able to read it. its portability would be greatly improved if it was sold with a carrying case. also it could be improved if more music could be downloaded.
