    Pretty sweet except for the pretty poor two line LCD. 5 lines at least would be nice. 10 would be really nice.

        why wont these guys put out the walkman vcd player - why is that such an obscure item - seems like a deal to me - $100 for a cda-mp3-vcd player - thats the ticket....maybe sony is sleeping.

          At lot of the big electronics manufacturers e.g. Sony, Kenwood, Philips, Panasonic and others make VCD discmans. They also make stand alone VCD players. Just take a look here: http://shop.store.yahoo.com/jbronline-sg/video-player-vcd-player.html Unfortunately these products aren't widely available outsde Asia, where VCDs are much more popular than videos. However I think you may only be able to get Mp3/VCD discmans from cheap brands.
