AFTER ALMOST 4 YEARS WOULD NOT TRADE FOR ANY I-POD

Summary: The Sony MZ-NHF800 Hi-MD Minidisc Walkman is an awesome machine that is equipped with AM/FM/TV/Weatherband radio controls. With the 1 GB minidiscs and the minidisc-compatible technology that has been created since 2004, when I purchased this item, there is so much that you can do with this recorder...
Summary: I bought this product a little over a year ago, and was happy with it for a while. Then it malfunctioned. Sony duly replaced the unit. The unit went unused for a while and then once i began to use it for a while lo and behold, it malfunctioned again in exactly the same manner.
Summary: Many of the reviews of this machine contain old or incorrect information. There is a WAV converion tool at this point, and you can burn CD's that will play on any CDR compatiable player right out of sonicstage.
Do not buy this product, unless losing tracks is your goal!

Summary: Do not buy this product, unless losing tracks is your goal. At first, we were very happy with this mini-disc, as the sound quality (if you buy the Sony mic) is impressive. However, when we downloaded the files (which we spent a month live recording) to the software included with the device, they...
Summary: I'm happy with the 800 except for the lack of a backlight on the main unit or on the remote. Many descriptions of the unit on the www (including the one here at amazon) indicate that the remote is backlit. Not!
Summary: If you hope you can upload music you recorded before, you will be disappointed. You only can upload music recorded with this player. Another problem is that you can not record FM program even though the player comes with a FM tuner.
Summary: First of all, I want to preface this review by noting that I am not a major techie or very much into the whole music downloading file sharing thing. I originally purchased this minidisc unit so I could make recordings of the talks I give and be able to transfer them to my computer.
Summary: I just purchased this Sony Hi-MD with the expectation that I could record my own home-made music, upload it to the computer, and burn CD's - a reasonable expectation. Warning to all musicians: You cannot burn CDs that will play in ordinary CD players.
Summary: This Hi-MD recorder meets any requirement a music fan can have. I bought it last week and started downloading my music immediately. The sound quality it achieves in high compression is astounding. It really overcomes LP4 limitations of the old Netmd format.
Summary: This product deserves zero stars; unfortunately, the lowest you can rate a product on Amazon.com is one star. I bought the Sony MZ-NHF800 Hi-MD player/recorder to replace my relatively new and hardly used MZ-N707, which, one day, when I plugged in the headphones, refused to play.
