Haven't seen any good mp3 players from Sony. The PsP is good, but the largest memory stick you can get is 4 gigs, not enough...
I think they really got caught off guard in the mp3 market...

My last mp3 player was the sony nw-hd5.
It was a great player, and it had about 40 hours of battery life.

I have one of the strangest MP3 players ever made sitting around here somewhere. It's the Sony NW-E307 aka "The Bean". It has phenomenal battery life as well. I was able to plug it into speakers at work and play it every day all week long before it would need a recharge. The interface wasn't bad for such a small player, but the physical design was definitely a love/hate thing. Sony has made one or two decent DAPs, it's too bad that their music management software (SonicStage) is such a nightmare.

BTW, I also owned a PSP for about six months and wasn't terribly impressed with anything except the large screen. Didn't really need most of it's functions since I already had a large capacity music player and an ultraportable notebook for web surfing. Plus the game selection was a little weak. So I sold it and used the money to buy a DS Lite and a couple of games, which I'm much happier with.

I used to have the "NW-HD5 Sony MP3 Player", it is the best I have ever heard along with the "Zune".

I don't understand why everyone complains about the sonicstage software. I used it for about two years, and never had a problem with it, I actually prefer it to the zune software.

SonicStage is the spawn of Satan. It's just not a very intuitive piece of software. The interface is very clumsy, the album info lookup is a joke and doesn't find album art 75% of the time, and you had to dig just to find the options that control how the software behaved, and there were very few of those once you found them. I swear when I was using it that just about every third time I hooked up my player it would try to auto sync my music even though I had turned auto sync off repeatedly. I'm not saying the Zune software is a dream come true, but I do find it a little simpler to use. iTunes has to be the easiest by far, and hopefully Zune will get there in the near future.

I do (see my first post in this thread). I prefer using the Sony MP3 File Manager with it. Much, much simpler. There's also another third party music manager for Sony's Network Walkman called GYM (Get Your Music) that's supposed to be very good. They have a lot of information about it over on the ATRAC Life forums.

I can't stand Sony but I do love my PSP.  Never will buy another Sony product in the future.  I just can't stand all their crap with the DRM CDs, the PS3, blu-ray, and all their lies.
