Disadvantages Read the review
Sony NWZ-X1050 may not have the sophisticated, posh and trendy looks of iPod touch but it definitely looks smart and scintillating in its black granite texture on either sides giving it a rough features which makes it very secure in your hands. At least it has impressed me very much and I’m quite sure there are not many who will disagree. It is stuffed with loads of features the highlight being Sony NWZ-X1050 is first standalone MP3 player in Sony’s array of walkman ushering in the era of human touch screen navigation compatibility.
A sleek 97x52x10mm gadget that slips into your palm snugly. Begin to look from the top, there you will find the physical Play/Pause, Forward and Reverse buttons. You can control the volume or noise canceling options, which is in the form of a slider switch on the right hand side. All user inputs on the controls can be disabled or the touch screen can be de-activated by pressing the Hold button situated right on the back side of Sony NWZ-X1050. The location of the Hold buttons require a note of caution for inconsistent user because one just might unwilling set it into action. The Home button is at the bottom right below the touch screen. This is the power switch too.
The touch screen is quite sensitive as long as you touch them with bear fingers (please take care to remove your gloves while using it in winter). The navigation through albums is fast and silky.
But my point of contention and disagreement is Sony NWZ-X1050’s total dependence on MTP USB connectivity with Windows PCs but with Windows Media Player 11 (XP has Windows Media Player 9 as default and you need an upgrade here, which is simple if your XP OS us not pirated because in that case Microsoft will not validate your request for the upgrade) the machine allows easy drag and drop transfer option.
Since Sony NWZ-X1050 has loads of positive points, I would like to emphasize on a strange trait that is unique to this gadget. It is an established fact that Youtube is a flash based platform and it works perfectly but except Youtube client the web-browser needs flash to be installed! Why? As far as my knowledge goes flash based platforms are flash based platforms, then why it’s enamored by Youtube client?
