"No Complaints"on by millz315
Pros Sound Quality; Ease of Use; Runs on Single AAA Battery (no charging); LCD Screen
Cons Haven't Found Any
Summary Great player, I put in a lot of time researching flash-memory MP3 players, and this came out on top -- and it hasn't dissapointed. I am not only an audiophile, but a amature audio engineer and IT professional, and given that background I can't find anything to complain about.
Pros small size/weight, about 50 hrs battery life, screen
Cons small size, painful earbuds, sonicstage
Summary If you are looking for a light, small mp3 player with a decent amount of space, this is for you. There are only a few problems with this;
The earbuds hurt after about 1/2 hour of use make sure you get different ones;
Sonic Stage is a pain (it took me 2 hours to organize all my music on this thing);
It is so small its hard not to lose it
I reccommend to anyone over a shuffle
Pros battery life, ergonomics of player, easy to use, sound quality
Cons software is really annoying
Summary this mp3 player is great if you are jsut looking for a player to play back music. Sony says this player can hold 695 songs when they are compressed using SonicStage at 64 mbps. I average around 400-500 because some of my files are large. There have been cases where people have been able to fit more than 695 songs onto it. this thing has no fm tuner or voice recorder or anything. battery life is superb!-i average about 50 hours out of mine; very easy to use-can switch between albums and songs without even having to take it out of your pocket-flash based so its perfect for working out;which is why i bought this player and because it is light. only a couple of ounces.
THE SOFTWARE IS PRETTY BAD-it is slow and it is madatory to use to transfer music-to get maximum compacity, you have to compress songs-takes forever with SonicStage, so just go out and downlaod free software like Xilisoft Audio Converter. I got the free one of of cnet's donwload.com; it work great and it is very very easy to use plus its very fast
overall sony has a great player-the only reason why it doesnt get a full 10 is because of the software
"Extraordinary Mp3"on by jimlution
Pros Long Battery, Reasonable Price, Great quality on 48kps
Cons sonic stage but it alright, it not a really awful software.
Summary i just bought this, to replace my bulky Sony Cd Player. i was thinking which sony mp3 player Bean? Core? Circl? i decide to buy the circle, because it was low price. when i first started to using it. IT was one of bes time of my life. i was able to run with with it. the sound was outsatnding quailty. If you thinking about buying sony mp3 player, i will recommed this one.
THe Software was not THat Bad. Those people who are saying this software suck and all that. well i was patience with sonic stage were able to do it.
The battery was outstanding and incrediblely long. I normally listen to music for about 3 1/2 to 5 hour each day. and it took About two week and a half.
The Lcd was good, not the best. i mean while u runnign you dont need fancy color lcd while u running because u not looking at photo or something while u running. it also have LCD Backlit, u can view it in dark.
This is better mp3 player than ipod with 14 hour of battery life and creative
i will recommend if you bascilly thinking about buying mp3 player for running and long battter life
Pros very small, battery life, nice sound quality.
Cons too small, usb cover is hard to open
Summary This is a extremely small mp3 flash base player, and its just stunning on how it operates. the e107 battery are just unbelieveable, dont take my word for it just go ask someone that has one and tell them how great the player is working for him/her. This mp3 player gaves me 50-60 hours tops. It has a rating time of 70 hours, but I think it can get that much if you convert your files to atrac3plus. The sound quality is perfect. Buttons on the player is easy to use as well. downside about this player is that it has a 1 line lcd dot screen and the usb cover. If you know someone with this player ask them how hard it is to open the usb cover. I had to use a knife to pop that thing open. But I guess the small size of the mp3 player can tell you its hard to open the usb cover because the cover has to be small enough to be on the player. The mp3 player feels like your holding nothing at all!, thats how light the player is. Most people love small flash mp3 player like this one, ipod nano's,iriver's, etc but beware....this player can be easily lost so I suggest you get a strap for it and hang it on your neck or something.
