The closest iPod rival Nano with 8GB storage is priced at $129 and comes with 1.54 inch TFT display.

The player comes with standard play/pause, navigation buttons, Back/Home button and Option/PWR Off button.

The player provides a variety of options to play with sound output. It supports a 5 band equalizer with 6 presets. It also comes with simulated surrounding options including Studio, Live, Club, Arena and Matrix. When it comes to audio quality Sony E-series MP3 player is a real winner.

The video display on the small screen is suited only for watching small videos. Photos on the screen look bright and clear. The player supports JPG format.

Pros: The Sony E series Walkman player provides a brilliant audio output and a simple interface all at a very affordable price.

Cons: The Sony E series Walkman player lacks the file type support for videos and photos. The physical buttons presents an outdated design with the lack of touch interface as in other modern players.
