Summary: It's a great and stylish product but I won't buy one again. I know MD is very popular in Asia and other parts of the world, but I just don't see how is that better then MP3 players especially when the price on the MP3 players are getting cheaper by the days?
Summary: I had a Sony MD recorder for about a year before I bought this one, but it recently broke just out of warrenty, and I decided it would be less expensive to buy a new one rather than repair the old one.
Summary: I am so glad I did not buy into mp3. Just a few days after having the md player/recorder I knew it was right choice. I can not understand why this format is not more heavily advertised. It has it all. Sound quality, versality, convenience and did I mention sound quality?
Summary: The product name, "Sony MZ-N510CK NetMD Walkman/Recorder with Car Kit" (...notice how it says "recorder"), is very misleading - I would go as far as to call it "False Advertising" - It DOES NOT have a mic input! I had a Sony MZ-R70 and I was looking to upgrade.
Summary: The Minidisk unit itself works well, it is compact, lightweight and feels kinda sturdy my only gripe with it is theres no back light and the lcd/data screen is sooo small, so its a pain to read file names. The add-on items with the exception of those horrible headphones all are very cool.
Summary: In response to joewaiian's review, he should have researched a little better before purchasing his player The MZ-N510 makes no claims to be able to record with a mic, for that you need the MZ-N707.
Summary: I recently purchased the MZ-N510 after doing a lot of market research and research on the benefits of MD over solid state memory MP3 players, and I have been fairly pleased with the results so far.
Summary: i was thinking of getting an mp3 player about 3 weeks ago. i was going to get the 64 mb muvo from creative. seemed pretty good. cheap, 10 hours battery life, 30 somgs in wma format and you could drag and drop. the day i was going to buy it, it went up 30$ from what i saw online. i was ...
Summary: I was a big fan of the mp3 players that use flash memory and the memory cards. I decided to go with the minidiscs becuse they [don't cost much] per disc. Sony's discman is also very versatile. I absolutely love my minidiscman and won't go back ever again.
SOUR LEMON: No line out, USB won't transfer recording to PC
19 October 2004
Summary: This unit sports out a line-in and an USB interface for connection to a PC. Apparently it looks ideal for very high quality recording "on the field" for hobby musicians and similar uses. It isn't so.
