To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Verglichen mit dem Vorgänger (NWZ-E384) wirkt das Gerät wie eine billige Fälschung und nicht wie ein neues Sony-Modell. Der Funktionsumfang ist stark reduziert, auch Basisfunktionen wie die Angabe der Uhrzeit sind nicht vorhanden. Die Auflösung ist wesentlich schlechter als beim alten Modell, und merkwürdigerweise wurden sogar bei den Menübeschriftungen Fehler begangen. Wer wie ich einen Ersatz für den NWZ-E384 sucht, wird von diesem teuren Modell sehr enttäuscht sein.
I've had 4 or 5 of these Sony Mp3 players over the last 15 years and always loved them. I've only had so many because I've damaged them or they got lost/stolen However this latest offering is a significant downgrade, which may damage Sony's rep. with these players.
It's without a clock which means, as a person who does not wear a watch, I must also carry a phone or watch to keep track of time. The worst thing about it though is the quality of the build. Plastic is not fantastic or ideal for this type of product, especially if the asking price is 60 pound sterling - ouch!!! in my opinion. Oh and the accompanying headphones feel cheap too. The sound is ok, but nothing special. Sorry Sony, it does the job, so far, but the quality is crap! And is certainly likely to deteriorate quickly.
Although the payback quality is fine, the experience of using this is not very good. Screen quality is very poor, the menu system is clumsy and unforgiving, you only have an indication of the time expired on the MP3 file - you have no idea of how long the file is in total. Small things, but if you are paying over the odds for it, these things need to be fixed. The bundled software (Music Center for PC) is also pretty poor to use.
I was very disappointed with my latest purchase. Having previously bought 3 other Sony MP3 players I have always liked them. I found that the docking connection on my new purchase had been made smaller so it no longer fits my Sony Docking Station. In addition there is no facility to make bookmarks.
A lot of reviews say it's cheap feeling and plasticy for a Sony product which is true. Worst thing is the "hold" function allows the unit to turn on in your pocket when any button is pressed. Bizarley you have to turn "hold" off to power the unit back down.... So 90% of the time you go to use it the battery is flat because it turned itself on several hours ago.
If you expect SONY standard, you'll very likely to be disappointed. An old Sony mp3 it's WAY better. This does the job if you're looking for a "regular" mp3, of course. But then, you have 99822992 options just quite as similar for a fraction of the price.
It's an mp3, it's good, but it's not SONY as you know it though. Bear that in mind before acquiring it. :)
Very disappointed with this model, expected it to be better as it was replacing an older model. There is no lock on the unit so when placed in pocket, it switches itself off. Don’t buy this - save your money. Wish I had!!!
Purchased 1 and receive 1 as a gift, i have the earlier version for 4 years that was far better display and options, this feels like going backwards. No issues with sound quality disappointed in the display options, sat on the side gone back to my previous one another ornament to throw in the drawer
