I really like this portable CD player and it's a constant companion whenever I go away somewhere now and it's used by both myself and my daughter regularly for listening to new music and old when on the go.
I can't deny it does look a little cheap - which I wouldn't mind but for the fact it's not particularly cheap to buy - and my biggest issue with it is the fact I have to remove the CD from the player when I have to change the batteries. To be fair however the player will remember where you were on your CD when you removed the disc to change the batteries so at least you don't have to skip through tracks to find it.
I find the fact it takes regular batteries a bit of a boon. It means that you are not beholden to chargers and finding a power source if the power runs low - batteries are usually pretty easy to get hold of no matter where you find yourself after all.
My only major gripe with the player is how fiddly it is to open the lid to insert a disc or change the batteries. You need two hands to do the job and it would have been so much better if Sony could have designed the switch to ensure it also made the lid flip open instead of relying on the user to both slide the button and lift the lid. If you have arthritic fingers you could really struggle to get this open.
So while a portable CD player - even one with mp3 capabilities - isn't going to replace the mp3 player, there are definite advantages to them and the Sony Discman D-NF340 is certainly a reliable and versatile player.
Summary: Versatile portable CD player from Sony which enables you to listen to mp3 discs and regular CDs
Summary: just go for it
