Most helpful reviews

Phil, Isle of Man

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The sound quality and maximum volume are both superior to tie newer A series Walkman which I also recently purchased.The noise-cancelling headphones are brilliant.↲
I also love the display for its clarity & the fact that there are dual controls- touchscreen and buttons.↲
Finally, I love that it isn't an iPod!
Bad points:
Biggest grouch is the inability to add any additional software. ↲Also, it doesn't hold on to WiFi networks very well.

Betty,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light, Portable and bought for a good price. Downloaded CD's from my computer (personal use only). Battery has a good life. Display is clear and visible. Have not tried the Radio feature yet, or putting on photo's etc..
Bad points:
Unable to find speakers that the device fits, unlike another company which has various shapes and sizes of speakers, I have managed to get an auxillary cable that fits between the device and my Bang & Oulsen Stero/CD player. But no real bad points that make me feel disappointed in the product.

Donald,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Touch screen and screen quality is very good. You do not need to use iplayer to put music and videos on it.
Bad points:
Difficult to get movies on it Archos 5 for example plays most video files without conversion, would be better if it could play more formats.

MP3 Players Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Experience all your music in stunning sound quality

You get superb sound quality from Walkman® thanks to three built-in audio technologies: Clear Stereo, Clear Bass and DSEE digital sound enhancement. They all work in harmony to bring you a listening experience as close as possible to the original sound, just like being at a live performance.
Eye-popping video playback

A full colour OLED screen display brings you razor-sharp, ultra-bright video playback in incredible detail and clarity. With 10000:1 contrast ratio, wider viewing angles (up to 180 degrees) and super-quick response times (0.1ms) you get breathtaking results on screen, even with fast-moving scenes
Access podcasts and online content without a PC

With built-in Wi-Fi, you can browse the internet and subscribe to podcasts anywhere there’s a connection. Go to your favourite podcast site and subscribe straight from your Walkman® via the RSS button, plus access online music, videos and content from other websites.
Choose how you control your content

Hybrid interface with dual touchscreen and button operation gives you easy control over your Walkman® – whether it’s in your hand or pocket. Browse your entire media library with the flick of a finger on screen, or access music, videos and photos via intelligent button controls – you choose!
Longest battery life around

Walkman® battery stamina is way ahead of the competition, which means you can listen and watch for so much longer. With straight playback of up to 33 hours music, and 9 hours for video, plugging in to power up will be the last thing on your mind at home, in the car or anywhere on the move
