NWZ-B173 Review from MSN UK
MSN recently reviewed the new B-Series and gave it a whopping 3.5/5. Not surprised, it is a nice player but lacking FM amd the mediocre format support like all other Sony players are unfortunate.
What is it?
Sony's entry level Walkman with a fast-charge option for a quick sound blast.
Sound quality excellent for such a small player; clever design; small, lightweight footprint; easy to sync with a Windows PC; good battery life.
User interface difficult to navigate and counter-intuitive in places; disappointing lack of format support; no FM radio.
The bottom line
Worth considering if you're looking for a slim, handy companion to accompany you to the gym, but the awkward user interface will put off anyone who likes to browse their collection.
