Sony Net MD Walkman MZ-N510/L
Advantages: Takes batteries so can outlast devices while on the move.
Disadvantages: More bulky than the modern day music players
This now look like ancient alien technology, but back in the day this was the craze, smaller and more compact than a tape player. know for its tiny disks which still to this day i think look pretty sweet. id prefer a CD player to play them over what the modern CD looks like, but i suppose there is reason why each of them are like they are and why CDs now rule the roost when it comes to the music industry.
Price and Availability
Finding these in shops now would be virtually impossible, however if you go online to eBay or amazon im sure you would be able to scout one out of there. They aint badly priced. if you are to go online in the next couple of days mine will be selling on there with alot of mini disks with it at a bargain price so its worth a look haha.
If your one of these people that cannot be bothered with the chew on of the modern day technology then this can be found at a cheap price online and they aint to hard to find one which is in decent shape. For the older generation more than the young however because you can now get ipods for fairly cheap aswell.
Appearance and Design.
The appearance of this crafty little device aint to bad, theirs a small screen which at times can be hard to understand what some of the abbreviated things mean. but you can quite simply get around and record and play the music that you want to. Each of the buttons are labeled so you can see what you need to press to make each of the certain areas to work, this can make a big difference when it comes down selecting a music device for me personally as i cannot be bothered with something that is going to cause much confusion and make the task of simply listening to music a task.
There is a range of colours from what i can remember when you first purchase one of these, i went for the silver option, however maybe not the best choice as the silver is only a coating on the top and it had signs of wear and tear on this item now and you can see the sections where the white has started to come through from beneath, but still no chunks or deep scratches on this device, suppose this shows that the device can handle wear and tear rather well as ive owned this for at least 5 years now and it still works.
not a bad little music player for someone who doesn't want the hassle and chew on with new technology, the best way to put this would be to have a good time and easy simple technology that makes the most of the music that you want to listen to.
i would recommend this for people of the older generation cause it takes batteries so there's no need to carry on charging it when it goes flat, a simple change of rechargeable batteries (all old people have these) and your bobbing your head to the slash all over again. Perfect.
Summary: Perfect for someone who cant be bothered with the hassle of modern technology
