"It now comes in 16GB and gold 8G colour"4.5 starson by wbeasley1963
Pros: larger capacity, great sound, dedicated volume controls, noise reduction at a VERY affordable extra price, great out-of-the-box headphones.
Cons: fussy over video size - would be great if it could on-the-fly scale larger videos down to fit the 320x240 screen (it can downsample 320x240 video to play smaller in "vertical" play mode). would be great to use iPod friendly sized videos...
Summary: Sony usually make great sounding Walkman players (the new B-series though are shockers!). The drag and drop loading of files works well. Not as nice as using iTunes to store your library but you can drag from iTunes (except DRM tracks). The EQ settings and FM radio are good extras. iPods are a great COMPLETE ecosystem to live in but if you want awesome battery life and sound, go with this player instead!
