Just called them and got the $50 discount. Does it show up immediately on the order, or is the refund only seen through the credit card balance?
only seen through the credit card balance and in your order details, so you wait 3-5 days to show.

Anyone planning on rooting this device? I'm still trying to decide whether I should root it and try ICS, or just go straight for ICS.

You can try official version for android 4.0 ice cream, but I don't know if it works on North America model or not.
It's for Asia pacific walkman z1000 model.

Thanks, but I have the Canadian ICS update (0002). I'm just wondering if the update affects my chances of rooting this device.

i just called in and got the $50 discount back, it should show up on the credit card.

Great deal at $79 for those who got it. i was hesitating at 129, but at 79 that's a keeper

I avoid iTunes like the plague. Rather buy CDs.

Vinyl is MUCH better than CD's! Invest in a record player.

can someone post the link to this on FS website? I can't seem to find it at all anymore, it's like they removed the product entirely from the website...

Great device for music. I always like Sony for their excellent sound quality. At the $79 price, it's a very very good purchase.

I think the reason the Z series walkman is on sale is because the F series is coming out (or well, IS out in other parts of the world).

You won't hear a huge difference in sound quality between the two though. Both are top notch.

It was removed now...

They still have this one:

The E series is a great mp3 player, but compared to z.....z destroys it out of the water. And if those lucky few that got it at the same price, its a big win.

Nm, its 8gb vs 16Gb for same price, BIG BIG win
