Okay, I'v got a NW-HD3 and it aint great, in fact, its rubbish. Its small, its light, its cheap (though discontinued I think, £141 from ebay new and sealed) and its got that g-sensor thingy BUT the software is ******g RUBBISH, its slow, it stutters, it crashes. select anything over 3 albums at a time and try to do something with them it grinds to an infuriating halt. I can live with slow and stuttering, (bit like me really) but i absoloutly hate the format. I'v ripped all my albums to 192kb/s wma as its better than mp3 (according to google) but sonicstage wants to convert it to atrac, thats fine, if i could choose decent bit rates, 256kb/s is the max (to0 big!) 132kb/s is the second highest (too small!) So, why do you like it so much, if i wasnt so skint i'd spent £30 more an got a slighly larger player with DECENT software. P.S MY PC is pretty good performance, XP pro and has recently been given a clean bill of health from a reputable pc guy.
