Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The capacity of the machine in term of data storage is excellent

Connecting with my PC for inter-operability is good
Bad points:
The radio reception is lousy - worse than my previous cassette-based walkman

I don't really understand who to contact if I have a problem - specifically how to get viideo clips etc. to play on my machine
