Sony Walkman A845


Sony takes on the iPod nano with built-in noise-cancellation and an OLED display.

OLED display ; Competitively priced ; Good sound quality

Small display isn't ideal for video ; Bundled earphones aren't great

The A-series Walkman is a fine successor to the previous models Sony has released in its class. The built-in noise cancelling ability isn't as much of a show-stopper as Sony might hope, but the A-series is nonetheless a solidly built, well-featured and...

Sony NWZ-A845 review


This smart little Sony is the best non-Apple portable device we've seen - even beating the all-powerful Nano in some key areas

Stylish design ; big screen ; easy to populate with content ; open, weighty sound

Not as musical as the best ; disappointing headphones

The best non-Apple ultra-portable we’ve seen, and in some ways it’s better than the nano

Sony NWZ-A845 review


Concentrating on the basics of music and video pays off for Sony's iPod Nano rival

Sometimes simplicity works best, and whether by accident or design, that’s the A845’s strength

Sony Walkman NWZ-A845 review


Sony's latest Walkman is an impressive personal audio and video player

Superior quality when compared with similarly priced devices ; Good video playback ; Slim design ; Good bundled headphones

No iTunes like ecosystem (some may think that's a good thing) ; Dated design ; Limited features

They may be unable to compete with iTunes, but Sony delivers fantastic audio results

Sony - Walkman NWZ-A845 16GB


Sony has created four distinct families of Walkman MP3 players that appear as though they have been designed to plug into the tiny gaps in Apple's product range between the all-conquering iPod Touch, Nano and Shuffle. ...

We like the Sony A845 despite its long list of minor flaws. The absence of a touch screen seems a bit odd, and the limited support for music and video formats could be a real problem for some people. On the other hand if, like us, you merely want a...

Sony Walkman A845 Review


A few weeks ago we had a quick preview of the new Walkman A845 from Sony – the main selling point of which was its incredibly thin form which at 7.2mm makes it the thinnest Sony Walkman yet – and now having had time to give it a thorough ‘going over'...

Sony Walkman A Series MP3 player (NWZ-A845B)


Sony's latest iPod Nano competitor has a great OLED screen, but a mediocre interface

Bright OLED screen with good contrast, inbuilt noise cancellation when used with compatible headphones

Mediocre interface and controls, $100 more expensive than an iPod Nano

The Sony A Series Walkman (NWZ-A845) MP3 player competes with the Apple iPod Nano, offering one of the best screens we've seen on a small portable media player and some nifty features to boost audio quality. It is hamstrung by an unspectacular...
