Still better than MP3; best MD player ever

Daiho, Amazon
12 September 2011
  • Summary: In the crush of a funeral procession for a Tibetan lama in Kathmandu, my MZ-R909 disappeared from my jacket pocket, leaving me musically stranded with still another month in Nepal. I thought I might have to buy an MP3 player. After all, where would I ever find an MD player in Nepal, a place far off the developed world's distribution chain and a society just finishing a 10-year civil war.

Sony MZNH600D Hi-MD MiniDisc Walkman

10 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this little Sony Minidisc player as an alternative to the iPod. I bought an iPod ($400) that lasted less than a year. Nice. First the scroll wheel broke, then the hard drive crashed. Done with iPods! This device is now retro - it's at least 5 years behind the times. But look at what it does: -Portable 1 GB discs that are encased in a durable plastic shell. Did I mention that you can put 45 hours on one disc?

  • Summary: This is the second minidisc player I've owned. My first one (Sony MZ-R30) was exceptional in quality so maybe it isn't fair to compare the two... but this newer one is slow to respond, awkward to open, and the control panel is slightly hard to see. The sound is fine. My main complaint is the slow operating speed and clumsiness of opening it to insert the disc. I probably would not recommend this item unless you don't care about ease of use.

  • Summary: I'd read a lot about the Hi-MD format so I wanted to check it out in person. I don't know how in the world I missed this when shopping, but this model DOES NOT HAVE A MICROPHONE, NOR ANY WAY TO USE ONE WITH IT! Well, shop twice buy once I reckon. To me that eliminates at least half of the usefulness of such a device, but it's my fault for not finding that out before buying. So why the 4 stars? Because, as a player it's awesome.

  • Summary: The 1 gig capacity and atracplus codec are reason enough to use HiMD. The fact that the media is removable makes this device even more attractive. If your hardrive player or flash player breaks and it will, or if the battery fails then you can't access any of the music on the player. In contrast, you always have your mini-discs. Minidiscs last longer than cds. I've had cds corrupt data in as few as 2 years. Minidiscs have a much longer life span.

  • Summary: The Pros: It's a thing of beauty. Some people say it's made of cheap plastic. Well may be true priced at $100.00+, but that aside I would have to disagree. Runs on a single AA battery for days. Sound quality is excellent for compress music. The bad . . . It uses the obsolete USB 1.0 so it take 45 min to 1 hr to transfer 1gb music or data. Sonicstage isn't music-sharing friendly.

DO NOT USE AS A DATA DRIVE!!

Johnny, Amazon
23 December 2006
  • Summary: I have been a long time user of Sony's minidisc equipment. I mainly liked the removable media feature. For about $3, I could copy a whole CD to one regular minidisc and keep it in my media library. The early units seem to be made better. The more recent units look to be cheaply made. There is one inherent design flaw with a media that has to spin. The read/write heads have to move back and forth across the media, and this is the weak point.

Sony has made the SonicStage software MUCH easier to use.

Toomuchnoise, Amazon
16 August 2006
  • Summary: I have been a LOUD critic of Sony's SonicStage software. (You can see my rants on older models.) But that has changed. The new version of SonicStage is very much better. We active MD users have complained to Sony for years and -- to their credit -- they gave us the main feature we asked for: the ability to take music off the player in a non-proprietary format. (Sony chose WAV which is very useful but big. You can also burn to CD.
