Crazy price for what are amazing players, have the 8GB one, bought my Mom a 2GB for Christmas and it was not this cheap!

Stunning deal, however I think like with a lot of Boots stuff like this, and it now being a deleted model its going to only be found lurking in the dark corners of some obscure stores.

Heat added, but expect I think it will be very very limited in people finding this. If anyone sees one, grab it, best sounding MP3 player on the market, fantastic build quality, fantastic video quality, earphones are £30 alone too!

you could actually grab the earphones for £7.99 each on Play.com a while ago. Official Sony too.

Currently £122.99 on Amazon!!! ]http//ww…16W

Astounding deal or silly misprice?

Can you drag and drop?



Yes unlike the older A800 series, the A810 Series you could, effectively the same players but with different firmware so that they supported MP3 instead of the dreadful Sonicstage conversion to Atrac format that plagued older Sonys.

So yes, full MTP devices.

One of those silly prices on obsolete models that crop up on Amazon Marketplace...the 8GB one of these used to retail for that sort of price when it was released, however on close out it was retailing for £70.

Well put it this way, find for £18 not only an MP3 player, but one that is Sony, and is not just an MP3 player but also MP4 compatible so you can convert videos to play on it too! Then Look around and see if you can buy a 4GB MP4 player for £18!

Then to top all that off, one with fantastic headphones, and a robust aluminium body and a sound chipset which has had fantastic reviews for its clarity.

If found I wouldn't hesitate to be honest! The newer series have a slightly bigger screen, but same menu layout, same great sound, but I cant say I am as keen on the styling.

Great price, just what I need to upgrade from a 512mb that cost me about the same price

Would not build your hopes up *IF* you can find one its fantastic, but I have seen offers like this crop up on here before from Boots, Sainsbury etc...and with an obsolete model like this, its going to be found in one or two obscure backwater stores no doubt left as a display model or pushed to the back of a cupboard, but I am sure worth asking about, you never know.

Do these have an in-built speaker?

Nope, if it did it would be incredibly "Tinny" sounding I am sure! They lack an FM tuner which may put some people off (not me) but support MP3 (with ID3 tagged album art), WMA, MP4, JPEG photo viewing

Voted HOT!
OP, am willing to pay £25 + postage for this. pls let me know if u can get @ least one for me!:thumbsup:

Thanks cicobuff, I know a speaker would sound poor, but handy at times for me.

Does this have a voice recorder facility?

Great find- doubt I'll find one though!

ill need to have a look once i finishe work today

I remember when I paid 90 quid for these when I first started uni a year and a half ago.. doh xD

Am going to a large retail store in a few mins, will report back if I can get hold of an extra one.

i bought one when they were 35 quid a few months back in boots........ phone customer services and they'll tell u which local stores have stock of this item....boots sold them in black and pink..0845 708090

theyve got none at trafford centre

0845 070 8090

there will have been just the one...in just the one store......so its ice cube cold from me

Customer services told me that there are non in the Leeds/ Wakefield / Bradford Area

Any Sony MP3 player for £17 is a bargain...

I've got the 16gb version (deal on here) - superb.

Love Sony. RIP iPod - long live the Sony :-D

just rang the number to check if there was any in the plymouth area. unfortunatley not! the girl on the telephone who happened to be very friendly had taken about 30 calls already.

i said expect some more!:thumbsup:

checked bristol and couldn't find any.

no stock everywhere in the north east...

Voted Cold. Did you say you saw them or you bought one. Rang Boots who say they don't sell Sony Walkman 4gb. incredible how all the posts on this say they have been unable to get one. You got a few bites on this fishing rod with nobody finding it. :x

Thanks Ian - nabbed one in ipswich first thing this morning! 3 left in the cabinet when I was there. Only pink left but a superb deal.

Things this player hasnt got, inbuilt mic for voice recording, FM Tuner, and audible support. What it does have in its favour is sound, image and build quality, and ease of use.

OK Apologies. If someone found one, then i hold my hands up:oops:

Yes but only at the same store as op...

Was going to say, none left in Boots, Durham (Retail Park)

great findgonna have a look in a couple of boots

in fairness to the op he does state that he is not sure if it is national or local so he made no promises that it was in any store beyond the one in ipswich

Just got off from Boots cust serv. to check local availability and they claim that a 'website are giving out false information'. They haven't sold this model for 18 mths and that no store has stock. They speak with forked tongue:x

More chance in a shoe under your bed!!!:whistling:

checked with customer services. they have no record of this particular model!:x

Same as Harleyman and others - phoned Boots Customer Services to be told "we have had quite a few calls about this today, it is NOT a product we sell". My guess is that poster got lucky with one of these in one brancgh of Boots.

In the circumstances, would suggest that this "deal" (which it is not) is EXPIRED!!

Never fails to amaze me that "deals" like this get voted hot when they are not.
