Sony Walkman NW-E003 MP3! THE FIRST REVIEW

AdvantagesCompact, Easy to use, Sounds Great, Quick Charge

DisadvantagesLow Functionality, Very small

"Sony Walkman NW-E003 MP3 Ahh the first review of a new item, where do I begin… Right I will start by giving you a personal opinion about what I like and dislike about the player. I recently purchased the Sony Walkman when my Apple ipods battery packed in. There has been a lot of controversy recently regarding the battery life of the ipods so when mine packed I was gutted. £250 down the pan. After loosing out on this amount of money I vowed never ..."

Walkman walks my way

AdvantagesCheap, Small, attractive, fast recharging battery

DisadvantagesLCD screen hard to read in sunlight, sound not loud enough

"...silver and green. The Sony Walkman is small and compact, weighing as little as 25g and no bigger than 3inchs in length, and about 1cm in depth. It has an attractive coloured plastic covering the software inside. The MP3 player connects directly into your computers USB port by removing the silver plastic covering at the end of the player. It has a small LCD screen which displays the name of the song, the artist or the name of the album but not ..." Read review

Sony Walkman NW-E003 MP3

AdvantagesLong battery life, quick charge

DisadvantagesHave to use Sony's Sonicstage software. Display hard to read in sunlight.

"...20 albums worth on here. Sony reckon that if you use their ALTRAC format at 64kbps you can get up to 45 albums on here. I haven't used their format so I can't comment on the sound quality here. To transfer music onto this player you have to use Sony's Sonicstage software, you cannot just drag & drop your files from Windows Explorer. The more tech savvy and those who are unkeen to install extra software may find this quite annoying but once the ..." Read review

A simple & stylish MP3 player from Sony

AdvantagesSize, simple software, USB charging facility, its a Sony

DisadvantagesSmall display, accessory skin over priced

"...piece, CD to load on Sony software & a pile of instruction manuals in different langauges(?!) There is no charging lead so charging is carried out by plugging the unit into a computer with the USB connector loctaed under the removable cap. A power monkey can also be used if you have one. Battery life is decent & although short of features this little MP3 player plays good quailty sound with four simple controls plus a 'lock' feature. The front display ..." Read review

AdvantagesGood player, nice and small

I wouldnt be without it

Advantages Small, lighweight, easy to use, ultra quick charge

Disadvantages Poor software

"Sony = Quality Technology giants Sony broke the mould with this slimline mp3 that was released about a year ago. I first obtained mine as a replacement for a packard bell one had as a crimbo present that unfortunately died after only a few months. I was not totally convined at first, as my previous one had a screen for displaying pictures, which this did not. I soon fell in love with this nippy and efficient machine. One of the many features of ..." Read review

(mine has recharged in half an hour) -Nice sound quality. -Display is easy to see and read. -It's reasonably durable, I have dropped it on numerous occasions without and damage.

Very easy too use, Great value for money.

AdvantagesVery easy to use, great value for money, smart and small design

Disadvantagescould come in more colours and the volume could be better

"This MP3 player is excellent! I had this before i got a Zen and i prefer the one anyday. The design is compact, there are only a few buttons and the system is very easy to find your way around. You get a cd with it and this is extremely easy to download on to your computer. The great feature about this MP3 player is that you dont have the extra worry of losing the wires that you would need to put into your USB port you just remove the silver ..." Read review

Quick review of Sony Walkman NW-E003 1 GB

"Quick review on this pink one. Its the same like the other nwe00X series of walkmans. Minor cosmetic problems and scratches will occur if there are no protection on the actual unit itself. And one thing I noticed, If your using an upgraded headphones, It will shortened the playback hours of the walkman. And another one, I can't barely see the screen during the day if its against the light. Maybe because of the OLED screen. just my 2 cents.

Quick review of Sony Walkman NW-E003 1 GB

"Simple to use, nice design and easy to load tracks onto. However, i had technical problems with this mp3 player, it would play most songs perfectly but it would skip songs or cut out while playing.

Quick review of Sony Walkman NW-E003 1 GB

"This is an excellent mp3 player. It looks snazzy, it\'s very small, it\'s got it\'s own screen but even better the battery life on this is superb. The battery is rechargeable via your USB port and if you charge it for 3 minutes you get 3 hours worth of playback time.

Sony Flash MP3 player - NW-E003

AdvantagesLightweight, small and stylish

DisadvantagesCharges via USB

"As always, Sony has copme up with another versatile and stylish product. Bought just before going travelling, it was almost perfect! The size makes it very discreet so felt safe carrying it around everywhere. It holds hours of music and the battery life is good on it too. The only negative thing, which I didn't realise when I bought it, is that you have to charge it via a USB port. While travelling, it is sometimes hard to find internet cafes, especially ..."

Just brilliant.

AdvantagesExtremely long battey life, loads of space, wonderful looks!

DisadvantagesStandard features.

"Wow, after using this MP3 player for a quite a while, I have discovered it's almost flawless. For a standard MP3 player this is definetly above average. 1 GB is pretty mch enough, when will you listen to every single track in your library? Just put all your favourites on, and switch them for new music when it comes out. This is one of the best products I have ever used and have had no trouble at all. I'm no computer genious but I found it so easy ..." Read review
