The Sony NW-HD5 (NWHD5) 20GB hard disk digital music player delivers a staggering 40 hours playback on one battery charge and carries up to 13,000 tracks. The Sony NW-HD5 also features the most innovative interface yet seen on a portable music device and comes in stylish colours of black, silver, and red. The Sony NW-HD5 offers full support for playback of MP3 and ATRAC3Plus digital audio tracks. A seven-line large LED window with bright backlight combined with the novel concept of the follow turn feature of the display, delivers real intuitive operation. The display graphics shift and change position depending on how users hold the NW-HD5 Network WALKMAN to provide smooth visibility. This follow turn feature uses G-Sensor technology to automatically detect the horizontal or vertical position of the device and consequently changes the position of the display graphics as well as that of the function buttons.

Pros: build quality, battery life, inline remotes from other Sony portables work most important functions.
Cons: software is buggy and would prefer other recording uses, voice memos, etc. .
Easily beats the iPod in sound quality and matches storage and portability. Use of other Sony remotes saves you some dough. highly recommended Read More at Epinions.com

One Giant rolls over another Giant. Think Different.
Pros: Tiny, lightweight, beautiful, unique, solid, superb sound quality, easy to navigate; ATRAC format is amazing
Cons: Expensive. not many accessories (both a blessing and a curse). User Interface a little weak.
A superb, yet expensive alternative to the hard to beat iPods. Much lighter and smaller than iPods, and to me sound better too! Good stuff. Read More at Epinions.com

Cons: SonicStage not as good as iTunes, lack of accessories, few functions
Excellent mp3 player, but look elsewhere if you want more features on your digital audio player. Software could be improved. Read More at Epinions.com

Smallest, Lightest, Strongest
Pros: Smallest, Lightest, Strongest Battery Life (20-40hours), Removable Battery
Cons: Flimsy Cover for USB and AC Adapter, Only MP3 and Atrac3/Plus Support
Smallest, Lightest, Longest Battery Life (removable!), plus it looks cute. No other portable unit can match its strengths at the time of this writing. Read More at Epinions.com

Great Player, SonicStage could be better
Pros: Long Battery Life Plays MP3Pro format. Super Fast transfer speed.
Cons: SonicStage Software Flimsy USB/Power cover
Until high capacity flash based players totally overtake HD based players, this is the best option, by far. Read More at Epinions.com

Limited functionality, but small and LONG battery life
Cons: SonicStage is terrible.
No Rating feature.
EQ only works with proprietary format
Better option in the crowed MP3 player market, but definately not an iPod killer if you consider the software. Read More at Epinions.com
