You know at first i was skeptical at picking up a tablet, but I finally caved and got an iPad 2. It was clearly one of the best decisions of my life. accessing email and reading articles is the so easy with this thing. However, if you are looking for a device that can completely replace your laptop, a tablet will not fulfill that role. Definitely consider buying an Ipad if you have the funds, but if you are looking for a laptop replacement, you won't find it here :-( You know at first i was skeptical at picking up a tablet, but I finally caved and got an iPad 2.

This unit has great, traditional Sony sound quality. And I write this not even using the headphones yet, but simply from the built-in speakers. Perhaps I am aging, but I do like to listen to music (and definitely radio) without headphones. This player has a good sound that is very clear and detailed with not much in the low frequency, but real clarity in the mid to high frequencies. Don't expect theater sound with these little guys, but it is respectable - my neighbor even heard it while outside and said it sounds good, and I was surprised he could hear it! So far great battery life, very easy to use (esp. w/ media monkey), and a nice looking player. The directional pad could be a bit bigger, but that is a minor suggestion to a great sounding player at this price. Highly recommended.
Good value. Easy to use. Many function options.
Solid Alternative, excellent sound quality and equ6/10/2011
Having owned a Nano for several years I was wary about switching to another branded mp3 player. However, I had always wanted better sound quality...something that could really pump out some music. After using this Sony player for about 2 months now, I have no regrets with making the switch. The sound is full and rich, and the bass really hits the spot. It was like hearing my entire music library for the first time - I could finally pick up those lows and even some highs that my Nano had been missing. The Hardware: Slim profile slips into my pocket, great for the gym, running, 2 built-in speakers really do the job with minimal distortion, Having a Dedicated volume button is refreshing. The Software: Navigation is easy, intuitive (but takes getting used to after using a Nano for so long). Video and pics look great. Windows Media player needs some polishing when it comes to creating playlists, but this is no fault of Sony's. Overall, great purchase. Would recommend!
Have used this Walkman daily for several weeks with no problems. My ipod was stolen, replaced with this because it was more affordable. The only thing I had to learn was how to transfer itunes purchased songs. I found dragging and dropping an itunes purchased song into Windows Media Library, then select Walkman using Windows Media Player to sync. Syncing was slow until I downloaded software from Sony, though it did work without it on Windows 7. The sound is as good as the ipod using ear buds and costs much less, though the built in speaker sound quality is poor; you'll need the ear buds. I found I didn't use all the options on the ipod so this is perfect for me.
