Default Sony E ( or S ) series

Does anyone have the E475? How do you like it?

Also, I had the S764 and really liked it but it had an 'any button turns it on' feature that made it WAY to easy to accidently turn on. This was the reason I returned it.

Has this feature been fixed in a firmware update to make it optional? Also does the E475 have this problem?

I have an E354 and it does have the any button on feature, but the buttons are not so sensistive as the S764 so I can deal with it (though occasionally it still turns on when I don't want it to).

Any input on the E475 would be great!

All the tactile-based (buttons) Walkman players have a "Hold" slider, and all light up when the buttons are pressed. The exception was the A867 I owned, as it was a touchscreen based player.

I haven't found this to be an issue with my player (an NWZ-E465) since I make it a habit to turn on the hold button when I'm not using my player, especially when I'm travelling and not using it. My experience is that the time the screen flashes on doesn't have a significant effect on my player's battery life since I set the screen off timer to 15 seconds.
