Oh Dear It All Falls Down

I'm staggered by the poor build quality of my Walkman.
A couple of weeks aog, the area of fascia around the buttons began creaking when you pressed a button. It was avoidable, so I accepted it.


Now the whole fascia creaks and squeaks, which really annoys me.

I'm just very, very dissapointed. It's been good to me, the sound quality is far superior to iPods (I've tested it with mates, even the iPod fanboys agreed) the design is very funky and it works well.

Sony should be trying to burst Apples bubble, not pissing around with crap software and dodgy build quality.
I sincerely hope this was just my walkman, and that it is not a recurring problem. Otherwise, I can only label it a failure.

P.S I'm not interested in iPod fanboys and their silly remarks.

Errr, sorry to hear that, but we did warn you :P

That said, it is becoming more and more difficult to find ANY high-tech things on the market that are robustly and well built.

I have my opinion Panasonic has made some aluminium casings for walkmans and they have very robust buttons. I would go with Panasonic any time if buying a walkman !
