High quality video on such a small screen?

Fantastic price on this, but a note to those that are interested, this is the earlier version of the NWZ-A810 series of players, they have the same great headphones, however the downside is they are not like the NWZ-A810 series in that they are not MTP devices and MP3's have to be converted to Sonic Stage. They also have a slightly smaller screen being 1.8" instead of 2"

Besides these minor criticisms, they do have exactly the same 30 quid headphones included and the same fantastic sound and build quality, a 4GB player of this caliber for £30 is a steal, voted hot if you can live with SonicStage .

Rep added.

You're welcome, as I said if you can live without the drag and drop facility, the NWZ-A800 offers the same features of the NWZ-A810, its reviews however were compromised by Sony's Atrac bottleneck that all existing players had.

The negative reviews may have been Sony's reintroduction of this player as the NWZ-A810 series, with MTP function and easy drag and drop.

If you are slighty tech savvy though, at £30 for a 4gb one of these its a steal of a price.

Thought I would call ahead but the guy on the phone sounds clueless.

He asked if it was a dvd player.... A 4gb sony walkman!
#7
I will see if I am lucky enough to find one at my local store have some rep Cicobuff!
#8
if this is the older style sony mp3 player, then you should be able to dump sonicstage and hook it up via winamp. google for "ml_sony" and have a look on the atraclife colloquium forums for info.

i have an NW-aA3000 player, and its ace once you get rid of the horrible software that comes with it...
#9
wow I thought I knew a little about pc's but you lot just lost me in seconds!:oops:

Can someone please tell me as a newly recognised technological dunce does this walkman play videos like the ipod nano or is it just pants?

My son wants an ipod nano for xmas but at £100 its a big chunk of his christmas fund so if I could get something cheaper that does the same it would be a great relief

This player is far from pants, but its not really advisable if both you and your son are not very good with technology. Whilst some have no trouble with the older Sonicstage software Sony used to use for getting the MP3's from your PC to the device, most people favour being literally able to drag and drop their MP3's from a folder into the music folder on their MP3 device, there is a multitude of players out there along with newer Sony models that do this (Creative, Samsung, Sandisk and new Sony players all do)

Yes it does play videos like the Ipod Nano, but once again you may have to convert between video formats, nothing a good google search to hunt down a tutorial can't sort out, but once again it all depends what type of person you and/or your son are.

If your son is at all tech savvy, or you know how to use google to good effect and have the desire and patience to learn with tutorials this is a great bargain.

If you are both technophobes and struggle with PC technology and the initiative to learn, no disrespect but really this player wouldn't be for you no matter how much a bargain it is :)
#12
We have both versions, they are identical to look at... the screen is the same size on both. I prefer the sonic stage version, so dont let it put anybody off
Yes you can drag and drop with the newer version but if you want the tracks named and album art in place you have to use WMP 11 witch is more complicated than sonic stage IMO
#13
Does anyone know if there's any chance any Sainburys still have these in?

Tried googling your local store number and asking them?, that might be useful in knowing, or going to your local store and trying to find out :thumbsup:
#15
I just went to my Sainsbury's- Edinburgh Cameron Toll- and they were all out. Always worth a check though, because the staff haven't got a clue about the different models, so there could be one hidden away in a cupboard somewhere.
#16
good fine, I'll check it out this afternoon ^_^, thank you. HOT!!!
#17
looked in store at weston-s-mare.price was 59.99
#18
Has anyone actually got one of these?

Checked my local today and they only had different model at £59.99
#19
Great find if its still available. On a side issue, could any "mp3 experts" tell me which is the better deal, a creative zen v plus 8gb for 49.99 or a sony nwz a818 8gb for 69.99 (or 74.99 depending on what deal is available). Your help would be greatly appreciated.

OOPs look like you missed out they hadent changed the price ticket, if the op is right about the price it would have scanned at £29.99 at the till.

Yes you can drag and drop with the newer version but if you want the tracks named and album art in place you have to use WMP 11

That isn't true at all - if you want the tracks named you just use windows file explorer/mac finder/amiga workbench.

If you want to ID3 tag them then you are free to use any tagging program - some complex and some simple. The same tagging app can embed album art (although the awful db/file structure used on these players means something will probably end up going wrong with the art).

WMP and sonicstage are both awful and I'd steer clear of both - a shame this isn't the A810, but it's still a excellent price for people who can put up with the lack of drag and drop.

if anyone does buy it and really doesn't want to use sonicstage then [http://sourceforge.net/projects/symphonic/]Symphonic[/url] is worth a try - but it's java so not much better than SS.

I had a look in sainsburys last night, the price was still 59.99 on the shelf. I though it may be the case that the ticket had not been updated so I asked the lady at the services desk to check the price for me. Unfortunately it was still coming up at 59.99, I made my excuses and left :whistling:

I think I am qualified enough to answer this.

Both the Creative & Sony players you mention are now discontinued, the NWZ-A818 now being replaced by the NWZ-A728.

The Creative Zen V being replaced by the new Mosaic.

Whats more interesting about the Sony replacement however, although it provides a bigger screen, 2.4" instead of 2.0", it offers nothing else new (apart from an uglier design and a rear kickstand), making bang for buck the NWZ-A818 currently a bargain as retailers are selling them off. Also the footprint of the newer unit is actually bigger too, so you get a bigger screen but a bigger player!

The Zen mosaic you can find in 8GB flavour for about £75-80, it has a slightly larger screen being 1.8" compared to the V Plus's 1.5". However its design is subject to taste!

Pluses of the NWZ-A828 over the ZEn V Plus

. 2.0" Screen, very high quality (Only 1.5 on the Zen V Plus)
. Aluminium Body, very durable and very small (Zen V Plus is older and far bulkier)
. Has unrivalled sound quality and comes with Sony's EX-82 headphones worth £30 alone
. 33 hours Playback (15 hrs on the Zen V Plus)

Downsides to the NWZ-A828 are

. No FM tuner
. No menu customisation (if thats something you like to do)
. Not audible compatible (so if you like audio books forget it)
. Unable to create playlists on the fly (Have to do it on the pc before setting out on your journey)

If FM Tuner or any of these options are essential to you, forget that the Sony is the best sounding player on the market, its not he player for your needs, and you would do better looking into either Creative or Samsungs offerings (Although you don't see many Samsung deals)

If you do decide on Creative, check out reviews for the Mosaic, and also the design is somewhat subject to tastes (I personally think its ugly)

http://www.trustedreviews.com/mp3/review/2007/05/03/Creative-Zen-V-Plus-8GB/p1

http://www.trustedreviews.com/mp3/review/2007/10/06/Sony-Walkman-NWZ-A815/p1 (this review is for the 2gb not the 8gb but features are identical)

Google for hits on Creative Zen Mosaic, very few reviews currently, but really if you can get a discount price on the Creative Zen 8gb, I would go for that instead if the Sony doesn't meeet your needs....but be warned that quite a few people have complaints with Creative units freezing, although I have had a Vision M for a couple of years and never had any problem, you always see reports of people with problems with Creatives units.

If you are interested in the NWZ-A828 check out my thread on it here http://hotukdeals.com/item/229539/sony-nwz-a818w-8gb-mp3-player-white Comet have it in white for £69.99 I bought one the other day, with £2.45 quidco cashback. :thumbsup:

Well I went to sainsbury's, they had it in stock and it as marked up at £59.95, I asked if they could scan it and it showed up as £59.95.

Did anyone else manage to find one?
#25
Looks like this is a wild goose chase..... price is still £59.95 should be expired.
