ken, Chesham I love music

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Music quality, which for me is the most important. Screen display and size. Internet access including bbc iplayer.
Bad points:
No switch to skip forward or back a track when listening to music, you have to take it out of your pocket and turn the screen on and then do it on the screen.

David, Harrow Middx Music addict

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent quality sound you can hear all the instruments. - in fact the best i have ever had. Even my other premium Sony players/Arc S do not compare. I like that you can have moving graphics when playing songs I LOVE IT SO MUCH , Sense Me Channels are excellent,Very Robust.
Bad points:
Dont get a very stable WIFI connection with this . My Sony phone etc are excellent but not this!! The screen is not really HD - why ? Also could really have a camera for the price.

Michael, Cheshire Professional, retired family man

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good clear display, user friendly and allows premium space for frquently used Apps. Don't have to spend a lot of time with the user manual. Like the music player, haven't tried the video player but have used Youtube and the display is very good. FM radio is good and clear here in mid UK but haven't found how to use the presets if they exist (which means I should pay attention to the User Manual!). No problems getting onto permitting WiFi and it's one of the two features I have used most, the other being music. I like the access to the Playstore and It's like being a kiddie in a sweet shop, some really good Apps. Everyone says that Itunes have got tens of thousands of Apps but to be honest I find that Playstore has plenty for me at the moment.
Bad points:
First a confession, my comparator is a Walkman NWA850 which I thought was just right for me but I lost at Tokyo Airport in November 2012. The 1060 in comparison is bigger and heavier, especially as I bought a leather case for it which exaggerates the size and weight. The size is an issue as it feels too big (including case) for a pocket. On the other hand the screen's a good size for my biggish fingers. I could suggest that others get a tight fitting plastic case.
I would like a separate folder to store podcasts which is one of the reasons I have a Walkman, currently I am storing podcasts in the music section.
It takes a long time to boot up and shut down but I'm comparing with a NWA850 which I remember as being instantaneous.
