Comments about Sony 16 GB Portable Black MP3 Player:

I've only had it for more than a month, nothing to complain so far about reliability. The sound quality is good, but with the downfall of car speakers in the last decade, it is hard to tell.
I like the 16gb of internal memory because it holds all of my music. I had problems with other brand players not adding the content of external memory to the list of the internal. Wanting to play one or the other but not mix both.
The trend nowadays is to rob users of control over their devices and as such the Sony Walkman no longer has a true USB MTP protocol. You must go to Device Manager on your PC, update driver, choose search my computer, choose I will select manually and pick USB Mass Storage Device. Then it will detect it as external storage and you can then Synchronize it with the program of your choice.

Service and delivery comments:

Excellent Delivery by ABT. Delivered before time scheduled in great condition. I would use them again.

Comments about Sony 16 GB Portable Black MP3 Player:

The sound this MP3 player puts out is unbeatable. If the unit was larger and the window to display Folder songs was larger it would be wonderful.
The ability to save MP3s in different folders to use in each class is wonderful. The "S" series was the best. Too bad that series is no longer available.
