Gadget Detective on
Gadget of the Week
Sony NW-A1000 personal music player
Excellent build quality
Large high quality OLED (Organic LED) display
6GB capacity in a relatively small unit
Excellent battery life, although well short of the 20 hours quoted by Sony
Good value for money
Stands out from the iPod crowd
Sonys Connect software is awful. Apples iTunes is superior.
No colour screen for photo or video playback
Some may find the iPods controls more intuitive
Far fewer third part accessories available than for iPods
Price: Can be found online for as little as £109 inc. VAT
Star Rating: 8.0 Stars Poor software stops this otherwise excellent player from being an outright iPod beater.
