Very nice, but you forgot the Japan only A8XX Series Walkman that tops off @64gb (the 1 we all drool over).

I intentionally left off the A-series due to wanting to keep the chart a certain width to fit the ABI forums. I don't mind adding it on though. I think I'll replace the above chart with a thumbnail linking to an unrestricted width chart. Thanks.

Matt

Edit: The biggest thing that I learned from making this comparison chart so far is that there is an E340 series for the US and Canada (with a mini-USB plug and no FM recording or Voice recording) and an E440 series for the UK (with a WM-Port and FM/Voice recording). That helps explain some early confusion on why the recording features were "removed" in early reports.

I doubt it unless you knew how to read the language...also it is a bit tough to translate to a good equivalent sentence because of jap grammar structure...

It sucks that you have to move up to the S740 to get up to 32GB....what if you want 32GB but don't want noise canceling (or to pay for NC)? Fail.

Updated the chart to show that the E340 series only supports WMV videos and not MP4's (per the user's manual and confirmed by lestatar).

Thanks Ghibli. I updated the user manual link for the S740 series in my original post. I also found an English A840 manual at the Sony Asia site you linked to. I updated that link also. I read through both manuals and updated all the specs for the S740 and A840 series. Thanks again.

Matt

Edit: I also added two new rows for "On-The-Go Playlists" and "Delete Files On-The-Go" since these seem to be common questions in the forums.

Hey everyone. I'm not going to be updating this chart anymore since most of these models from last year have either been replaced or about to be. I'm also going to be deleting the image because it's been hotlinked across the web. If anyone is interested in the original HTML file that I used to create the image (it's one big HTML table), just let me know and I can email it to your or upload it somewhere. Thanks.

Matt
