Rennie I haven't owned that Sony, but my last phone (Sony) used the same player. As much as I like my BlackBerry, I miss my sony. The fact that it plays MP3's and WMA (Windows Media Audio?) is a plus. The WMA files are about half the size of MP3s, so will give you more room to load more songs on the device. They also have a good sound, from the device itself.
On the flip side I don't have anything against ipods. I got one for my wife and she can load the thing herself (which says something) and loves it. I just personally don't like the iTunes software, but it works for her.
I recently completed ripping all our cd's to mp3 format and cataloging them on our home pc. Several weeks, hundred CD's, and over 3000 songs later, it makes loading them on our players much easier.
Edit: Have also owned Creative brand mp3 players, both were easy to use and software was easy to use, still use it for ripping my MP3s.
