I have had this item for about a month now and I have to be very honest when I say this product has lived up to every expectation.
The batteries last forever, at the very least 30 hrs. per charge. Charging through the USB port is great and a lot quicker than I thought it would be. The menu is extremely easy to navigate allowing you to select your music in a number of different search fashions. The video can be played in portrait or landscape mode and the quality it really good for the size of the screen. Pictures can be viewed in the same manner as video. The software can convert most movie formats into the format that is needed to be played by the player so don't worry about that. You could actually convert 2 to 3 - 2 hour movies and watch them from the Sony. Its great!!! I also purchased a set of Motorola StereoMoto Stereo Bluetooth Headphone Headset, HT820 to accompany the Sony Walkman and it was extremely easy to establish a connection. The Bluetooth technology makes it easy to change songs right from the headphones so there is no need to touch the walkman at all. It can all be done through the buttons on the Motorola headphones. The only problem you will have with the two together is if you listen to music outside at night. The Motorola LEDs alternate lighting up when you have the bluetooth connection setup and because the sony is the size of a credit card and can easily be concealed in a pant or shirt pocket, I have had several neighbors inquire as to what I had on my head!!!! I think they thought is was a UFO or ET or something.... LOL.
All in all, the Sony 16GB Walkman Video MP3 Player w/ Bluetooth - Black, NWZ-A829 coupled with the Motorola StereoMoto Stereo Bluetooth
Headphone Headset, HT820 is an excellent purchase that I would recommend for folks that want to work in their yard and not have to fight with normal headphone cords.
