I picked up this player after I saw all the positive reviews on the net. Specifically you guys and Cnet.com. Mine is the NWZ-A816 silver. Not sure what difference the 6 makes as it appears to be the same. First off, the sound quality is amazing! The included earbuds are excellent! But I'm still planning on buying higher end ones.Secondly, it's super easy to use. Love being able to drag and drop. No bloated software to run. I hear that itunes is becoming too much. Only negatives I have with this are the lack of an fm tuner and an expansion slot. Haven't tried video, because I don't care. Only listen to music.I was trying to decide between this and the Nano, but ultimately the ease of use and the superior sound quality won me over. And isn't that what mp3 players are all about?
I was stupid enough to drop mine in the toilet the other day. Unfortunately it's not as waterproof as I would have liked. But at 㿲 a pop you can't go wrong. Straight onto amazon to buy another one. Great value. Great sound quality. No itunes.
