Sony getting excited about its first player with video replay is a bit like a car manufacturer crowing about the inclusion of air con. It’s nuffing new, mate. But, given this player’s instant visual appeal, we’ll indulge the electronics...
Good Sounds awesome. Good video transfer software.
Bad The screen is good but it’s not the punchiest.
Bottom line Last month we asked if the NW-800 range could catch Apple napping? It can and it has...
We almost feel sorry for new MP3 players. It can't be easy going up against the mighty iPod, yet companies can't help but take their chances against Apple. So here we are again, with another challenger squaring-up to the nano for the featherweight crow...

The Sony NW-A805 is an inexpensive, stylish and intuitive portable media player. Sonys NW-A805 Walkman could make Sony MP3 players as big a success as Sonys Walkman phones. Sonys first foray into the video MP3 market is largely a success. The Wal...
Bottom line Video playback, audio quality and the Sony NW-A805s design are all absolutely superb. The management software and playback options are good but not fantastic. Sony shook up the music player market with its excellent Walkman-branded mobile phones, and...
Question: whats an ultra-slim, metal-bodied, undeniably cool MP3 player that comes in a variety of colours? Answer: its not the one youre thinking. I wont even venture near the term "iPod-killer", but Sony has come up with its...
Sony's A805 Walkman won a Most Wanted award in What's New, Shopper August 2007 for its superior sound and attractive design. However, next to Samsung's similarly priced YP-T9 player, it looks less good value today. Sound quality is excellent, and the fiv...
Bottom line The A805 sounds fantastic and comes with the best headphones in this test. Its battery life is a strong point, but if you want to use your MP3 player on multiple PCs, the SonicStage software is restrictive. An 8GB version, the NW-A808, is also available...

The A805 comes from Sonys new range of video-capable MP3 players. Sony has abandoned hard disks entirely in its Walkman range, and its MP3 players now use solid-state memory, which is surprising. The A805s 2GB capacity is miserly, but the A806 (£1...
