If you have prerecorded minidiscs that you like, this is one of the best portable devices

  • Summary: Pros: lightweight, good battery life, good sound Cons: Hard to use without the remote, remote is rather large, releasing unit from the charging cradle is tricky

Pure class - and the end of an era

lightstream, Amazon
24 February 2009
  • Summary: I'm sorry to see another brilliant Sony format die because of bad decisions from their marketing division. Someone sold them out in the US and killed the Minidisc by forcing the stupid copy restrictions into the hardware. Especially as most other manufacturers were making music players/recorders without those restrictions. This unit is the best Minidisc ever made in my opinion. It's a masterpiece of engineering and crafted with incredible perfection.

OK - if you don't have a MP3 player, this will do!

Lars C. Enger "Grand Larseny", Amazon
9 January 2007
  • Summary: Guess this product is sort of superceeded by iPod's and other MP3 players, but if you have an old minidisc player and want extra capacity along with compatibility with your old MD's, this is the way to go. In the end it is now just another gadget in my drawer of toys, with very infrequent use. Sound is in my opinion better than mp3 format files, but limited storage 1G is still too small.

Great sound quality! But only one star! why? read this:

Tal Riginiano, Amazon

  • Summary: MD's are one of the things I love best. Ever since 92, I'm this device biggest fan. However, with 1G of information, Sony succeeded to F**k this product pretty bad. Why? Terrible software. Actually terrible isn't even tickle the real definition of the sonic stage, but I suspect that the real word to describe it can't be published on respectable site like Amazon. First of all you can't just transfer your music - you have to re-encode it.

Marvellous Technology

Nikky, Amazon
12 October 2005
  • Summary: After my old MD didn't work as good as before, I decided to buy a new one and the best one so I chose the most expensive coz I believe that if the price is so high then there must be something good in it. Yeah! I bought MZNH1 I was innocent coz I didn't know about the USB stuff and all but when I use it I was surprised to see that this tiny ,thin aluminium Hi-MD player could do a lot of things. The sonic stage 3.2 is invincible.

Wow!! You won't regret it.

Carol Chan "Carol Chan", Amazon

  • Summary: I just got my Sony MZ-NH1 from warehouse123.com today as it is not available in amazon.com anymore. Great expectations, I have been waiting for while to get it and I finally got one device. Look? It just looks great, robust, magnesium made with perfect design. Sound? Just unbelieably good and it will make other mp3 player to shame. This product is phenomenal, unbelievably great sound and construction!

A piece of frustration

Gadget Dan, Amazon
17 May 2005
  • Summary: If you're a sucker for frustration, then this item is for you. This MZNH1 is only useful for listening to music. The other features it boasts for doesn't work. You'll end up loosing valuable work. I used it to record minutes of the meeting and it bombed out at the end of the meeting. It started displaying AuFileERR and it erased the content of the entire disk. Chatting with the help desk didn't help. I've only had it for a month and it's driving me nuts already.

Why bother?

E. ROSENBLUM, Amazon
23 March 2005
  • Summary: These minidisk players/recorders lock a user to some Sony's proprietary format (Atrac3) and software, and impose severe limitations on how your music collection (MP3, WMA and so on) may be copied from/to these devices (see WWW for details). So I just ask myself why a one would want to use this thing if there are so many (much cheaper) alternatives available that don't impose all these annoying restrictions?

excellent portable music machine

Drez "Drez", Amazon
18 March 2005
  • Summary: This little machine is awesome... I use it to play music copied from CDs (I ride the train to work) and to record live music. What puts this unit in a class by itself is the ability to record through the line-In or mic-In straight to 1Gig MD and then USB download to PC and convert to wav... Nobody else can do that, that I know of... that was the missing link --- Yea Sony!
