Sony Network Walkman NW-HD1 Review

sony network walkman hard drive mp3 player

I didn’t think much of the Sony Network Walkman when it was announced: a 20gb MP3 player for $399 ($100 more than the iPod), that mostly used Sony’s own ATRAC3 music format. I’ve been waiting to see a review to see if it’s worth looking at.

Judie over at the gadgeteer got hold of a Sony Network Walkman and write a detailed review. Here’s what she thought:

Liked: great battery life, small, solid, easy to navigage
Didn’t Like: ARRAC format, high price, must use Sony SonicStage application to manage music.

I still think I will give it a miss.
