Very tempting, £50 cheaper than most places, was looking at getting one in the States when I go, as they'd be lots cheaper, but this works out about the same price as Radioshack over there, with the added advantage I can use it on the ride there!
Have heat & thanks.

One word of warning, it seems that this doesn't support AVI & DivX playback which is a major pain in the rear, given that they're pretty common formats. It looks like you *might* be able to convert, but doesn't explicitly state it in the manual, converting 2 hours of avi to wmv might take a while with a poor/average pc.

"Content Transfer can
also convert a video file of a format not supported by the player into a playable
format. For details on operation, refer to the Help of the software.
Transferable files: Music (MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV), Photo (JPEG), Video
(MPEG-4 Simple Profile, AVC (H.264/AVC) Baseline Profile, WMV*1)"

It says "refer to the help of the software" about 15 times in the manual. Quite annoying.

Well just back with mine and it feels like a very well made product off to load it up with songs to test it out

I would definitely buy it if I didn't have concerns with the volume limiting.

Hot! Just ordered one.

Volume may be a bit quiet for some. Just buy a volume amplifier. £16.99 at Amazon.

Ah. Thanks. Bought me one. Reserved it and went there straight after on Sunday. The last one in stock here. Couldn't resist. Volume is alright for me with the supplied in-ear headphones.

One of the best sounding players and comes with very good earphones as well. (imo a thousand times better than the awful ipod earphones!)

Very good user interface on a 2.8" oled screen.

Great deal for £75! Especially considering that comparable earphones to those included would be somewhere probably be around £40...

Would almost be tempted but I have too many mp3 players! (htc desire, sony walkman s-639f, sony walkman nw-808 and a sansa clip+)

I have one of the older Sony MP3 Walkman's and I have to say the audio from them puts iPods to shame.

I think just about every other manufacturer puts iPods to shame.

Anyway, I really don't understand when people go on about the volume limiting. I have this and you can have it loud enough to drown sounds out around you. There is no need to have it blaring unless you're one of those people that sits at the back of the bus blasting dance music..

I have one of these. If you have any care for your ears or haven't already done them in then volume limiting shouldn't be a problem most of the time, though it will depend on your headphones, too.

Where it is a problem though is older or budget recordings where the volume might be lower than well-produced music.

This Creative Zen Style 300 16GB for £64.99 shipped is a genuine alternative imo

I have a slightly older model it is amazing. I know you can listen to music on so many different devices these days but if you really care about sound quality Sony Walkmans are hard to beat. Volume limiting has never been a problem for me.

I had the Sony S639F in the past but sold it when I started driving to work and didn't need one any more. Now I get the train again and I wish I could have the S639F back It's better than this newer one and doesn't have a volume limiting 'issue'.

Doesn't seem to have a dock feature. It's strange that lots of Sony hifis come with Ipod docks, but don't have docks for their own mp3 players.

They seem unconfident in saleability of their own portable music player products these days.

ive just reserved one of these at hull anlby untill closing on the 14th , then realised i really dont think im going to have time to pick it up if its any good to any one pm for reservation No

Quality of sound from this far exceeds ipod or other comparable brands the volume llimiting has never been a problem for myself and i have had several models through the years. Alot of hifi's have a usb now so you can always hook it up that way. Hot

ive had one for a while.
volume is too quiet with supplied earphones but if you get a decent pair of in earbuds its fine.
converting videos is a doddle. just drag and drop and it automatically does it for you

Tempted by this[Heat] I need a good 16gig player as I'm going on holiday in August, but I'll wait a while, and see if it comes down any more before we jet off.

It does come with a holder which connects to a certain hifi which only uses Sony Walkman's. I can't remember which one though, I'll get back to you on that.

Mmmm must be a mistake by them, does anyone know how to get to the service menu on the E series ? The volume is way too low and i want to remove the cap ! Its silly, anyone with a older model would be upset at the lower volume if they decided to upgrade to the newer model !

Hello, Big M,

Would you mind buy the last one at the Arbroath store and then posting it to myself and I will pay you vis paypal and pay for postage recorded delivery?

Cheers
