Sadly i feel the Sony NW-A3000 has been hit badly by the typical reacton of "lets compare this to the i-pod", the problem with this reaction being that the Sony loses a lot of marks for its own innovations and quality as an mp3 player in exchange for a lot of "but i pods do this and that". So to begin with I'd like to say I am activly choosing not to do this typical comparison, and instead talk about Sony players advantages and disadvantages in regards to their own merits. The price is incredibly fair for an mp3 player of such memory capability and quality, often a good few tens of pounds cheaper than other players in its class. This may ... Read the complete review

For the most part, this MP3 player from Sony has generally gotten good reviews and that is good because this is a neat little player for those who do not wish to purchase an Ipod or similar machine for whatever their reasons but be warned this MP3 player is not without its faults mostly relkated to its software! On the whole, it is small, reasonably compact and very asthetically pleasing to the eye. It is also manufactured by Sony who have a good reputation for music players in the past. Easy to use it comes with a number of functions which includes finding artists by name, track or album as you might expect but also allows searching by alphabetical order ... Read the complete review

I have good memories of this MP3 player. Prior to owning it I used an in-car MD player , I was getting a little tired of constantly having to swap disks and this device (2006) was the best answer. I was blown away with the ability to store my entire music collection on one device !, this made for some much more enjoyable car journeys and allowed me to get rid of my MD player. The unit itself is a very solid item , with a metal back and futuristic appearance. The LCD front display is STILL preferable to an ipod/iphone IMO as it is very clear, legible and displays all the information you need. Battery life is very good, I don't know exact figures ...

I bought this product back in November 2005 and had stop using it within a year although this was mostly down to the software rather than the actual unit. Firstly though, to start with the aesthetic side of things. The unit looked fantastic and very original. You can barely tell that there is a screen there until you turn it on and the display comes up and looks about as good as anything with a one colour display can look. However, if the sun is out then it's impossible to see. The screen is simply not bright enough to counter it and the have to walk around with the screen right up to your eyes and your spare hand cutting off as much light as you can. ...

I inherited this mp3 player two years ago, after my Creative Zen decided to break. My sister had just gotten an iPod, and had no need for it any more. It is flawed, but has served me well all the same. People are constantly asking if it's some kind of newfangled smartphone, given that it looks nothing like the iPods that everyone rocks these days. Part of me is happy to be original and different with my Walkman, but I often do wish for the functionality of Apple's superior hardware. The NW-A3000 comes in at 20GB, which is more than enough capacity for my needs, usually. Granted, every month or so I refresh my music on it, but for the most part it's ... Read the complete review
