    design is extremely disappointing and not user friendly since the navigation is right at the base of the item which doesn't allow for easy holding and navigating through the menu with a single hand. The software recommends converting AVI or other formats to mp4 so the device can play them - but not all files play after conversion. The MP4 that I downloaded from youtube play directly on ipod but with sony you need to convert them or encode them or something coz the format is still mp4. The device is also very slim - so much so that it can easil slide off your lap or leg if ur in a car. Got the screen scratched that way on Day 2 in the car. The ear phones don't come with sponge covering so they keep popping outta ur ears which is extremely annoying! Sony should have given the in-ear type ear phones with the product.

    Basic Mp3 player

    By grammyo

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Comments about Sony S Series 8GB Black Walkman Video MP3 Player:

    Volumn is not the best, I have hearing issues so using the speakers I must keep the unit close to me. It is a great tool to use as a stepping stone to something more expensive. I was not sure if I would like the portable audio aspect. As my review might indicate I am in the senior side of life! Thanks for the oppourtunity to purchase this item at such a great price.

    Comments about Sony S Series 8GB Black Walkman Video MP3 Player:

    It is an average device due to the fact that you can't delete anything without it being plugged into a computer. mine broke for no reason and now i have to find a new mp3 player to purchase.

    Sony Series S Walkman of Awesomness

    By Anonymous

    from Florida

    Comments about Sony S Series 8GB Black Walkman Video MP3 Player:

    This is the best music playing device to ever grace the market. It has everything you could ever want with a music player. Plus, additional things like a video/picture viewer, and radio (which has the option to record). Also the music quality is AMAZING! I've had this for a pinch more than two whole years, and it has not failed me yet, but I'm sure it never will.

    Nice MP3

    By AlanJackson

    from Sugarloaf Shores, FL

    Comments about Sony S Series 8GB Black Walkman Video MP3 Player:

    I love this product. This is my first MP3, and it is sweet. I love that i can store photos, and video, along with normal audio storage. I'm not a big fan of the in-ear headphones, but I can live with them. I kinda wished that the radio reciever was built it, but overall it is a good buy, and I like it.
