"sony mp3 player"

The sony walkman nwe002 Is a really good mp3 player as it is really good looking and beautiful as the screen is hidden which is a really clever thing done by sony .

The looks

The looks are really good and the screen is hidden . It is a really good looking mp3 player . It is quite small and slim and is available in pink siver and black i chose the black as i am a boy but the pink one is aimed for girls . The front of the mp3 player is not crammed with buttons it only has 2 on the front one big play and stop one and one tiny home ones . The front is very shiny but it can get fingerprints on it quite easilt . The usb is protected with a steel walkman usb cover but that gets scrathed quite easily .

The Features

All the features are good and what you find on a normal mp3 player but the really annoying thing is the sonic stage which can really get on your nerves . The sonic stage system is laid out quite well and the mp3 player is 512mb so that is quite good but all the music you download has to be first put on to that software and then has to be changed into a artrac track which is something only sony music players have . If you buy a stero system with a usb which cost quite a lot you cannot play it on the actual streo system or through its speakers unless it is a sony player . The samething happend to me i recieved a streo system for my birthday . My parents paid extra for the usb slot and my mp3 player could not play into that streao systam as it was not sony which really annoyed me and is quite impractical if you like to play your music out load not through you earphones !!

The price

The price is when i bought it for £39.99 but that was when it was brand new and was just released so it is now probarly £20 as it is now not that new . You cannot get it from the highstreet as like i said it is not that new and sony have made newer mp3 players to replace this one so you have to get it online or in a sony shop .

The sound quality

The sound quality is really good as you would expect from a sony walk man mp3 player . The sound could possibly be a slight bit louder as the maximum is 30 but i dont think many people listen to there music at maximum

The usability and simpleness
The buttons are really easy as there is not that buttons in ttal on the mp3 player there is a play and pause button foward and rewind button a home button a hold andvolume control
The whole mp3 player is quite easy to use . The menus are easy to navigate . Most people would be able to use these controls easily .If you cant use this buttons and navigate this mp3 player easily then i worry for you .

The xtras

This mp3 player has a sports timer a stopwatch a shuffle but it does not have a fm radio as some mp3 players do or neither does it have a voice recording . This doenot really make such a huge difference but it would havebeen better if it had these things

It is a good mp3 player but sometimes if you delete one track your whole music can be deleted as it once happend to me and thanks to artrac it takes a long time tto get all your music back into your mp3 player that is really annoying
