Purchaser Casual listener

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sound quality is incredible and the size makes it a portable piece of kit to have. I would buy it again, however its not asomething i would reccommend to someone else as Sony do make better mp3's. i would reccommend Sony though over its competion such as Apple.
Bad points:
the software is a nightmare depending on what OS you use, the device doesnt sit very well in the cradle.

richard , Durham Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Still looks a solid and well built piece of kit. sound quality when matched with good headphones is easily as good as any of its market rivals. decent battery life means i don't have to think about it running out on long journeys.
Bad points:
Since i bought a Mac computer i am unable to use sonic stage which is a pain so although i am able to listen to music on my Sony i can't put new stuff on it. i have tried my best to see if their is an alternative way of doing it to no avail. Still love it though.

Terry, Aberdeen Music lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Small & compact. Does not need a computer to be re-charged. 20gb storage facility, very useful.
Bad points:
Would have liked a larger screen, (eyes are getting old now!), preferably in colour. I believe that newer models do have larger screens?

Peter, Sunderland Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have found it too be excellent in the car, and even better on its own. Ease of use is good . Nice brushed steel case.
Bad points:
Must be plugged into the mains charger cradle when loading tracks. On off button is flush with unit and can be tricky to switch on and off. Headphones need to be better, i use a full ear set rather than the supplied ones. Should be supplied with a case though.
