Paul, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice compact design. Good sound quality when used klipsch earbuds. Easy to use.
To the people who made complaints, the sound quality/volume isnt great because of the poor earbuds that come with it. Go out and buy some quality earbuds with foam inserts and it will make it sound much louder than the ones that come with it. The person who said you can accidently turn it on, use the hold switch. It will power off immediatley if you accidently turn it on with that on. And the range rover owner, get a new car because it works fine in my honda pioneer stereo as an mp3 player.
Bad points:
Screen could be brighter in sunny weather. No ratings for tracks. Fast forward could be quicker, even in pause for long tracks it takes a while to scan. Not great for mix tracks. More information onscreen when playing would be good.

Jenny, London Fiddle player

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Excellent in all respects - except for the bad point below, for which I had to return my purchase.
Brilliant voice recorder - part of reason for purchase.
Sound quality was excellent, and volume perfectly adequate for headphones, but hopeless for non-headphone use (see below).
Bad points:
This mp3 was needed primarily to play recorded tracks through an audio system, for rehearsal purposes. The EU capped volume was so low it was not loud enough at volume set at 50/max - and, unlike other brands, had no way of increasing the volume by resetting player to another region. Very disappointed-and very inconvenient to have to return. Sony please note: not everyone needing an mp3 player uses it exclusively with headphones.
