The second consideration was battery life, the longer the better. - the Walkman has about 30hrs of music play between charges. I looked at a lot of personal product reviews before making my decision, and, once I came to buy, the Walkman was on half price offer at Amazon.

It comes with really good quality earpieces, not noise cancelling, but I have a pair of those anyway for train & aircraft use. The reproduction of music is not as good with these, though. Also the added option of video is useful even though the screen is 42mm x 32m in size - I have the 1968 Cream farewell concert from the Albert Hall on there at the moment. I can have a lot of photos as well as a couple of hours of video and (currently) over 20 hours of music tracks. Files can be added/removed by simple drag & drop in Windoze explorer.

Getting tracks on mp3 is not difficult at all. Either buy the files for download or rip them from CD or radio. Our local library has a wide range of CDs for rental, each one costing 50 pence (about $1) to borrow, so that opens up another source to me.
