NWZ-A818 8GB

Advantagessound quality, small, sleek, battery life

Disadvantagessmall screen for videos, no mains charger provided

"...a lot of reviews on Sony products and decided to go for them instead. I'm very glad now that I did. The player is of an average size for an 8GB player, being small and sleek. The menus are very straight forward as the layout is like the one of a mobile phone. There is no click wheel but the navigation is very easy and practical as the scrolling is based on search through the alphabetical order. This great gadget works straight out the box and ..."

The Sony A818 is an excellent device with only 1/2 minor faults

AdvantagesExcellent sound quality, great headphones, cheap, impressive battery life.

DisadvantagesNo podcasts or on-the-go playlists

Worth it...

Advantagesfeels nice, can be used as a pen drive, brilliant sound quality

Disadvantageshold button positioned at the back

"...work ^^). As always with the Sony Walkman products, the sound quality is superb and you get some nice headphones with the mp3 player, worth £40 if you want to buy them separately. The headphones come wit 3 different sizes of plugs which you can switch according to what is the most comfortable for you. You can also store images on it and look through them when you feel like or when your on holiday and want to show some pics to your friends and ..." Read review

More good than bad

AdvantagesNice screen, great sound, nice headphones, nice menu

DisadvantagesFunny film format, no playlist creation on device

"The Sony NWZA-818 i a brill piece of kit though not perfect. The headphones supplied are noise reducing (great on the bus) and the sound quality is fantastic. Looks good too, very slim and has a nice wieght - feels expensive. However, I felt the screen was a bit exposed and bough a hard plastic case for it . The menu structures are very intuitive and easy to use you get used to it very quickly. Another major good point NO SONICSTAGE! Finally Sony ..." Read review
