        We now own *3* of these units (mine is the step up 16 gig version, but basically the same). The other two units belong to our 7 and 9 year old. I spend 2.5 solid days researching mp3 players, iPod Nanos (5th and 6th generation), and iTouches. I learned a lot. Let me summarize our findings and help you understand why we purchased 3 of these great little units. BTW, my daughter had an old generation of this since she was 6. The battery life was great, took kid wear (though she was very good with it), and we NEVER had an issue (until my hubby spilled water on it Lol). Needs: audiobooks with bookmarking, podcasts, music, video, voice recording for the occassional lecture/seminar, and pictures (nice to have) Sony meets all of these needs with the best price on the market. iPod nanos were expensive: the 5th generation is tough to find for a reasonable price, the 6th generation is TOO small for any of us to enjoy, and the iTouch is far more than we wanted to spend - and was overkill for our needs (I really don't need an app for that.) We use iTunes to manage our music (too many issues with Media Player). The mp3 player comes with the transfer software in the memory. Simply attach the player to your computer with the supplied cord (yes, it's proprietary - it is necessary to connect to their bases and speakers), surf out to the folder using My Computer, copy the file to your hard drive and install (then you can format the player from inside the player to give you back that space and ditch the preinstalled music). The Content Transfer software allows us to drag from iTunes (or Windows) over to the player and the software takes care of conversions, file smooshing, etc. File smooshing, yes, a technical term for reducing an 890 meg, 27 minute video file to 342 meg. Bookmarking... let me educate you. The mp3 industry does not have a standard on what this means. For Sony, bookmarking marks the track (at the beginning) so you can easily find your favorite song or the chapter you were on in your audiobook easily. Bookmarking does NOT bring you to where you were IN the track. In music, no big deal. In an audiobook with a 30 minute chapter... nightmarish. BUT, don't be discouraged, I found a workaround to make this work BEAUTIFULLY. Read on. I discovered that if you pause a Podcast, go listen to some music, turn off the unit, do some other stuff and come back to your podcast, you pick up where you left off - no bookmarking required, it just is smart like that. So guess what we did? We went into iTunes and made all of our Audiobooks podcasts (select the files, right click, under Options, change the media type to "Podcast"). There are 2 BIG benefits to having done this: First, I can pause my audiobook and come back to where I was without fast-forwarding. Second, my audiobooks are no longer in the music queue. I can randomize/shuffle ALL of my music and ONLY music plays. Sure, I know. iPods do this nicer with podcasts being podcasts, audiobooks being audiobooks with pausing and holding your place in the track. Have you looked at the price of iPods lately? Especially when you compare feature for feature, an iPod will run nearly TWICE the cost of the Sony and you get a dinky screen on the Nano (6th gen) and frankly, as I said, an iTouch is overkill (and overpriced). Other cool features: carrying around photos of my kids, FM radio with preset capability, language learning (if you are studying a foreign language, karaoke mode (if you load the .lyr file), audio recording for lectures/seminars, or even recording my own audiobook for our 2 year old. We are MORE than pleased with our Sony for the kids and for mom. 8G is plenty of space for them. If you aren't looking for frills, but a good solid mp3 player, you have found an excellent choice, and for the price, you can't beat it (besides, with 5 available colors - it is great the kids are never confused as to which mp3 player is theirs!).

        At first, I really loved my new player. The sound quality is great, and it had some cool features (karaoke and lyrics). But after the first day, I was sick of it. To turn it on, you press any button. ANY BUTTON. The buttons are really sensitive, so multiple times I've gone to just pick up the player and it turns out. That's probably not good for the battery life. I've also had trouble putting playlists on it, though that might just be me. I'm glad I got this as a chirstmas present, because I wouldn't want to waste my money on this.

        Battery practically always low

        By BenD

        from Quebec

        Comments about Sony Walkman NWZ-E354BLK 8GB Flash Portable Media Play:

        I own the NWZ-E464 since fall 2012 and it broken after 3 months. It took 1,5 months to repare. But, it's not the worst. Con: It's not possible to completely shutdown this MP3/4 player. When you bring it with you, in your pocket or in a bag, it will be discharge frequently when you will want to use it. Even if you lock the player, in hope to save power, it will open up with a light control pressure to indicate that the player is locked. Just that suffise to discharge the player. Often, I have to recharge it 2 or 3 times consecutively without able to use it. And, to add to the problem, it's not possible to listen music or radio when it's charging. About the volume control, it's badly placed on the angled side of the player. When you try to change volume with one hand, the player will flip in your hand because you are pressing on the angled side. It's simply ridiculous. Also, some indicate that battery life is good. It's not the case with mine. I also own a Coby which is a lot better on the battery life. Don't buy this.

        from Lewiston, Idaho

        Comments about Sony Walkman NWZ-E354BLK 8GB Flash Portable Media Play:

        ...although, I didn't actually pay for it. I won one of these at Shopko. My iPod Touch has been acting up, so I've been using this until I can afford to get a new iPod. My point is, this is a cheap MP3 player, and its features/entertainment value reflect that. It's a good little player, and is ideal for young kids who aren't responsible enough for something more expensive, but it will not be replacing the iPod Touch for me. For the moment, however, it gets the job done as far as music goes. It supports videos and photos, as well, but the picture quality is low. In closing, I will say that the included drag-and-drop Content Transfer tool is incredibly simplistic and handy. Fun!

        Well, I liked this player, good sound, until it suddenly was stuck in the "hold" mode. No matter what I would do, even resetting or updating the firmware, it still remained in hold mode making the unit useless. Piece of junk

        Comments about Sony Walkman NWZ-E354BLK 8GB Flash Portable Media Play:

        This player has good sound quality and battery life. The main problem is the awful constructio. Buying these is a waste of money. I have bought three of the, and now none of them work perfectly. All has the same problem, that i can't charge them. It is a big problem for me and for everyone who wants to use the player more then once.

        Comments about Sony Walkman NWZ-E354BLK 8GB Flash Portable Media Play:

        Overall its a good mp3 player. I like the several different variety's of sounds that can be produced. It's sturdy and can survive a wash haha. My only complaint is that it, in my opinion never turns off, I find it annoying how it uses up power in a standby mode. This function needs the ability to be turned off or on according to the user.

        Far superior to my old iPod nano

        By Lennie

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about Sony Walkman NWZ-E354BLK 8GB Flash Portable Media Play:

        I got this to replace an iPod nano that broke after 2 years, and am really glad that I did. Almost everything about the Sony is superior to the nano, from price (about half) to sound (a lot richer) to battery life (goes about 40 full workouts for me without needing to be recharged). I particularly love the playback options, especially the variable speeds (good for audiobooks). The only thing I miss about the nano is the proprietary click wheel, since the Sony controls took a little bit of getting used to while jogging.
