For what it's worth
For what its worth, I like the unit, the battery last long enough for me to make my 18 hours in flights. This unit has but one down fall, You can not create a play list with it. You have to create the play list on your computer and then load it in. I find this very inconvenient. I like to play music I am in the mood for, not plan on what mood I will be in. If this unit had that I would have rated it higher.
Decent bundled earphones
Not quite cheap, but definitely cheerful, the NWZ-E463 combines a natty design with a good-looking interface and a wealth of music-related features. There are some significant bits missing, such as lossless format support, expandable memory and a standard USB connection, but this won't bother everyone. The key to this player is that, thanks to its thumb-friendly physical controls, pleasant interface and decent earphones, it's a device that's enjoyable to use.
Battery life, Easy to navigate menu system, Sound Quality
For a fairly low budget price tag, the NWZ-E463 model offers a snazzy design with a great range of music-related features. There are some minor niggles such as too small sized buttons and menu issues, but overall, a pleasing interface along with a solid pair of sound isolating earphones. All of these features make this music player an attractive little device all round.
Great improvement on the first generation
I own the previous iteration of this device which is now available for $50. I was so happy with the previous generation that I bought one for my brother and his wife for Christmas. The 1stGen product is great. For anyone who works out and hates headphone cables, it provides hours of music with reasonably thought-out controls.
When I saw that Sony had come out with a new and improved version, I had to have it. So far I have been impressed.
Built-in rechargeable battery
Sony NWZ-W262 2GB Walkman MP3 Player comes with the USB connectivity and the playback supported files are MP3, WMA (Non-DRM), WMA (DRM), AAC-LC, linear PCM. Sony provides a range of accessories which comes along the purchase of this model and they are quick start guide, built-in rechargeable battery, USB cable accessories attachment.
Affordable, versatile and compact MP3 player
All things considered this is a good deal for a low end MP3 player. For the price it's difficult to go wrong with this device. Is it perfect? No. Could there be improvements? Absolutely. As I mentioned earlier, my biggest disappointment was the lack of the audio recorder. I'm guessing this probably won't be an issue for most people however. Other than that I'm very satisfied with the Philips GoGear Vibe. Satisfied enough to consider purchasing the 16GB GoGear Muse.
Has a major design flaw
Used it about 6 times and was fairly satisfied. Sound quality for this type player good, easy to load (can not seem to change songs once placed though, not good) fairly comfortable to wear when swimming. The plug to access the plug in port, popped out on it's own. I had put it in correctly. Water got in and I hope after it dries out it will come back to life, but for now it's dead.
