- Doesn't work with Macs running Music (10.15)- December 13, 2020
Sony's Content Transfer software page says it works with Macs running up to System 10.15. This is FALSE as Mac switched from iTunes to Music in fall 2019. You will have to navigate to each album or song individually in your Finder and then drag-and-drop to get songs onto your Walkman. No synching playlists, and this becomes painful in a hurry. There's players available for MUCH less money, and Sony's technical support was a joke - they asked if I'd contacted Apple, "since Apple updated their system software", apparently not having any plans to release updates or realizing that it's not Apple's job to ensure 3rd party compatibility. Buy something - anything - else!!No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- Disappointed- February 6, 2017
I had the previous version of the Sony Mp3 player and I loved it however, I unfortunately lost it and purchased this one as a replacement, it is more expensive than the other one but the quality is cheaper, it feels more flimsy and I can't find out how to play ( if this one has that feature) videos like the other which was simple, nor does it have a clock. I am not sure if the sound quality is the same or not because I don't have great quality earphones. I do like the equalizer features and the radio is good, and it isn't complicated to use. Overall it's more expensive for less quality and features than the previous version, it isn't worth the money.

- doesn't work with iTunes as promised- December 24, 2021
I am very frustrated after buying these for our kids. We bought them based on the feature that there was an easy "drop and drag" compatible with iTunes. However, if you have purchased music with iTunes the files won't transfer. So disappointing- these are now useless for us since we purchase all music via iTunes (they are locked m4p files)... unless anyone has any suggestions?No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

- Awesome !!!- November 29, 2016
I purchased this Sony Walkman NWE 394 in November 2016 for myself and also purchased 2 others as gifts. It is easy to use and extremely lightweight! The music sound is beautiful with the included ear buds. The only drawback is that I wish it had Bluetooth in order to use it with wireless in-ear headphones. All you have to do is download the app to your computer and once you open the APP it automatically finds all of your music, videos, photos on your computer and loads them to the APP. Once loaded to the APP select All to add them to the Walkman. Easy as pie. Music and videos sound wonderful. Also has an FM Radio included if you want to listen to a radio station.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Walkman a new generation- October 5, 2016
I've had this a couple of weeks now I use it mainly at night and it's a very light, easy to operate MP3 player with clear sound an good volume range. Loading the tracks was simple with the Media Go software but I did have to download a file from Microsoft due to a missing DLL file. Very slim and light with the buttons easy to operate and they give positive feedback once pressed. Plenty of storage for music, I don't use this for photo's or videos but you can if you like. I'm very happy with mine which was purchase as a replacement for a very old MP3 player and I think this one will last just as long.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
