I was looking at mp3 players at Walmart but they were pricey for only the most basic features. When I discovered this by Sony it has external speakers and I fell in love! If you want to share the song youre listening to, just flip the switch to play it out loud. I could not find this unique feature in any other player. So I hunted this down online. They are expensive but I think totally worth it when found on eBay. Be careful on bidding on used players tho, as you dont know how long the lifetime battery has been used, it may be nearing the end of its life and you constantly have to recharge. I think a majority of the used ones people sell is because of a declining battery. I bought one from Amazon and had to send it back because of this. Ask the seller about its battery and just how 'used' it really is. Plays limited videos too. Great long-lasting battery life if new, one of the longest on the market at 30-40 hours per charge. Drag and drop files with cable. Great sounding speaker! Best advice...try to get a brand new one instead of used to ensure the battery is fresh and you get the full 40 hour charge.
You will be looking for model # NWZ-S544 8 gig or the NWZ-S545 16 gig.
This is my first experience with a media player. I purchased it to have some of my favorite Christian music available when not at home. It works great: I can play it through the car speakers when traveling and at home without earphones when I want soft background music. Battery life is great.
Great mp4 player. A+++++
Sony Walkman IS the best. The NWZ-S544 and S545 are one of the best series that Sony ever came out with. Why? Because they are built well. And this series is unique in that it has a built-in speaker so you don't even need headphones if you don't want to. You can watch movies and video clips on it. It has voice recorder, radio recorder, a built in radio, Great battery life. It sorts your music very well and even gives you the "Folder" option. Best Mp3 player I've ever had. And great sound and Great Sony Headphones. "Bar None"!
Very cool MP3 player. I have always trusted Sony electronics and prefer them greatly over Apple. I actually had the older model of this (300 series), and it took a major beating. It had been dropped on concrete, squished in my back pocket and sweated on during my workout and still worked. Finally the volume button fell off from being dropped too much, so I decided to replace it with this model, which so far seems to be just as durable.
The price is excellent for an 8gb, because you'd have to pay double for an iPod. It works nicely with Windows Explorer, Windows Media Player and VLC. I love the unique external speakers, which are more powerful than I expected, and it allows me to play music at work, while sharing songs with co-workers. The larger screen is a big bonus, as it is very clear and allows for nice video playback, without it being crunched up like on many others. The battery life, as with all Sony MP3 players, is great, and will easily last through 12 hours of nearly continuous use.
I love this Sony MP3 Player. The only thing that I don't like is that you can't edit your music on the player. In order to delete you have to do it on your computer. Other than that I would have to say it's the best MP3 Player I've ever owned. It had more than enough space with 8g. It's sounds great even with the ear buds that came with it. It's as good as the IPod. I would purchase another one if this one ever failed.
