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.
la baterias dura un 6 hrs, no agrega sub carpetas a la reproduccion, no hay comandos para saltar o regresar cancion mas que de forma manual, la calidad del sonido es la standar, no hay nada de grabacion, el radio tampoco guradara ninguna pista no creo que valga el precio.
My first impressions of this player is disappointment. I must confess, that my previous player was a Zune and I am starting to feel that it was a real premium product and may have spoiled all future mp3 players for me. I was looking for a quality replacement and felt that I couldn't go wrong with Sony but to be honest this feels like a cheap $20 mp3 player with a Sony logo.
Here are my first impressions:
1. This feels like cheap plastic. The Zune 8G felt smooth, tough and of a quality build. 2. Does not have USB C port. Micro USB is a pain. 3. Menu is not as intuitive as I had hoped. 4. Sound quality is good 5. Earphones are hard on the ears and have no padding. I am not looking forward to long listening sessions with these earphones.
In my next update, I'll talk about battery life, usability, and any other positives or negatives that come up.
Many people complained that there was no way to transfer Playlists from iTunes to this Walkman. I had the same problem, but I refused to give up. I finally figured it out after many trial and error attempts. It's a bit of a pain the first time, but it's pretty easy to do. It's better than having to recreate your playlists again. This information is for Window users:
1) Open iTunes and highlight the Playlist you want to transfer. Don’t open it, just highlight the name of the Playlist you want to transfer.
2) Click on FILE, LIBRARY, EXPORT PLAYLIST.
3) At this point Windows Explorer will pop up. You'll have to save the Playlist onto your hard drive. You can rename your Playlist here under File Name. IMPORTANT: Make sure you save the file with either an .m3u OR .m3u8 extension. You can find the correct extension in the drop down menu under "Save as type" just below the file name.
4) Note the folder where the Playlist is saved. I created a folder so I'll always know where they were saved in my hard drive.
Now open Sony Music Center (download program online for free). This is the program that the Walkman uses. From the Music Center:
5) Click on FILE which you will find under the 3 horizontal lines on upper left hand corner of screen.
6) Click on IMPORT PLAYLIST
7) Windows Explorer will pop up. Find the Playlist you want to transfer to the Walkman.
I bought it only because I listen to audio books while driving and out in the garden. I have one of those minds that run from the moment I open my eyes until I get to sleep. I have a daughter that I worry about. I love having someone to listen. Sony's biggest thing is it comes back to where it was when I turn it back on. I give this only 3 stars as I have had some problems with it jumping and loosing it's place if it is NOT locked at all times when not turning on and off. It will turn on in my pocket after it is off if not locked. I also bought the extended warranty because I had one of these die in just over a year. They cost way too much to replace in less than 2 years.
A good MP3 player (bit overpriced) when it still worked. Though there were certain files that didn't download, it was fairly easy to use and the sound quality was alright. The battery life was pretty good, considering it could go a few days without me having to charge it and it only had to charge for an hour or so.
The downside was that after a few months of use the screen stopped working. I can still listen to music since I memorized where the files were, but I can't see anything on the screen anymore. The screen just shows up as white. Granted, it did fall on the floor (but it was on carpeted floor). Giving it three stars because it worked, but then it didn't.
This 8G device is ok but I am use to the 16G walkman and when you downloaded anything it doesn't list it by category and author. This unit downloads everything under the same file. It was hard to get use to but I'll work it out and when this one dies I'll go back to the 16G.
It's okay, but the shuffle doesn't work. It will play songs at random, but then when you use it again, it will play them again in that same order as the first time, unless you add a song or delete a song. Have not see a fix for this.
