Jonathan, Aldershot Young professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The battery life is incredible! I go to the gym 2 or 3 times a week and I haven't had to charge my mp3 player since I bought it over 2 months ago.
Bad points:
Possibly could have a slightly louder maximum volume.

Muti,

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
plays mp3 songs
Bad points:
it isnt compatible with my in car 'iwant' cassette tape converter thingy that connects to the v3 socket in various audio playing devices such as this and phones.
nokia phones and blackberry phones work fine with the 'iwant' gadget thing, but for some reason the sony mp3 player doesnt.
why is this?? And is/are there any products such as the one i mentioned, that i could purchase to play music from my mp3 player through a cassette player?

Sandie, Leeds Senior Citizen

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am not a technophobe. I bought this player to replace an older one of a similar design which had seen very good service. I chose this one because I wanted one which was similar to operate and I am not disappointed. It is very easy to use all the features.
Bad points:
I don't use it for music. I am learning to speak French and have put a lot of French language discs onto it. Using the earphones the volume is OK, but I want to use it with a mini-speaker system and find that the volume could do with being louder. I have to sit at the side of it without any background noise to hear clearly.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Hold button is a good feature so you don't accidentally turn on the player (which is quite easy with the overlarge dial button). Sound quality very good, especially bass boost button. Almost half the price of a shuffle although the design is clunky.
Bad points:
Dial is annoying, overly large, fiddly and unnecessary - buttons would have been much better. The volume buttons aren't large enough when you're fiddling about to adjust in your pocket (or in the dark as I do!) and are next to the record button which I've pressed by accident trying to find the volume button. I like to be able to feel my way around without having to get it out and look at it - have to say the shuffle was much better designed for this. Lights on the dial are completely unnecessary, annoying and a bit embarrasing if you're wearing it on the clip on clothing until they stop.
