Sony Walkman NW-A1200 8 GB
Advantages: style, memory size
Disadvantages: Heavy, lack of features
I used to hate Ipod's and apple so decided to buy a Sony Mp3 player. I have now converted to apple's evil ways as I am too weak minded. Whilst I like the ipod I loved my old song mp3. Whilst the design seem very out dated now, when it was new it was one of the best players on the market.
The Sony's best feature in my opinion is the look and style of it. The player comes in grey, black or purple. The screen is very sleek with the names of songs etc being light up in a blueish light. Its difficult to describe but it looks very good. However the screen does have a problem in the sun. When walking down the street it can be difficult to see the words on the screen but its not a massive problem.
The player has no amazing features. It cannot hold photos, videos, games or anything else. It is a simple mp3 player, but it doesn't try to be anything else. The software it comes with is fairly easy to use and allows the player to be loaded with mp3's and wma's. However it is defiantly not in the same league as itunes which is a far better system.
The player was quite expensive when it first came out at around £130 for this version or £160 for the larger version (which is physically bigger as well as having a bigger memory). It is a good size and easily fits in a hand or pocket. However it is quite heavy which can become annoying. I bought a protective cover for mine as the screen can scratch fairly easily and I would hate to have a scratch running down the screen of such a cool looking piece of kit.
8gb is plenty big enough for me and held 1000's of songs.
I don't believe these are being produced and sold any more which is a shame. At the time they were an amazing mp3 player, now, whilst being out dated they are still a great looking a simple player.
Summary: A great quality, all be it old, mp3 player
