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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Summary: Sounds great, easy to use and easy on the battery!Software is absolutely no problem and ultra easy.Cannot understand why people are having difficulty with it.1GB disc is awesome.UPDATE: had it over 2 years now - works great and the software is easy to understand.
Summary: I've had my mini disc player for about two years now, and though I have no complaints about the player I'm having such difficulty with the software that I'm about to break down and buy an ipod.
Summary: I thought it was finally time to replace my Irock 520 32MB mp3 player. I looked around, but I couldn't find anything that really suited it, especially in my price range of under 90 bucks. So I talked to one of my friends and he recommended a MiniDisc Player. So I looked them up and I was impressed.
Summary: This player is really amazing... i really recomend it! PROS: *The sound quality at 64kbps is excellent... I can't tell the difference between atrac3plus at 64kbps and MP3 at 128Kbps. *I was able to store 36 CD's on one minidisc and 38 on the other one...
