Sony NWZ-E453 Walkman review


Squarely aimed at younger music fans, the NWZ-E453 makes up one-third of the brightly coloured E Series, which also includes the NWZ-E454 (8GB) and the NWZ-E455 (16GB). The model we're looking at comes with 4GB of built-in memory and offers up to 50...

Great audio quality, compact design, Karaoke Mode, easy file transfer

Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 review


The Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 isn't quite as slick or good-looking as its iPod rivals, but its simplicity, affordability and portability make it a worthy competitor none the less. Overall, it's a winner.

Slim and lightweight ; Good audio quality ; Easy to use ; Fun karaoke mode ; Affordable

Occasionally frustrating interface ; Not as slick as an iPod

The Sony Walkman NWZ-E453 isn't as slick or pretty as an iPod, but it's dead easy to use, extremely slim and highly affordable. We reckon it's a worthy alternative to an iPod if the taste of Apple makes you gag.
