Great review, helped me make my mind up on this, I can't wait for it to release in india. Yes they are a bit expensive for 16gb storage, but kudos to sony for the sound quality. I would pay a premium anyday for stellar sound quality in an mp3 player than gimmics like touchscreen and coverflow. In the long run that is what i plan to use an mp3 player for not for the useless features.


The premium earphones are a slap on apple's face.


Apple give more weightage to style (apparently) than audio quality and thats poor.

FYI the player DOES play DRM-protected WMA files that have been transferred using a suitable player. Agree completely that the lack of ability to queue music or create playlists on the player is an absolute pain. If I thought it were worth it I'd tell Sony to develop a firmware update to do this. The sound quality is excellent while the battery life is super - one charge lasts over 10 hours playing DRM-protected WMA's at high volume. Also agree about the proprietary lead but Sony will never lose some of its bad habits in that area.
