WORKS LIKE A CHARM. DON'T LET OTHER REVIEWERS FOOL YOU.

Summary: My first review of a minidisc player was done in 2001. It was for the MZ-R70 blue model. I have bought this MZ-R55 2nd hand, which is in fact, over 3 years old. The unit (recorder and all supplies) work like a charm.
Summary: Normal MD's are basically a novelty whose charm wears off the second you try to actually record one. If you want to record a MD at CD quality, you need a CD player with an optical output, which is not common, an optical cable (sold separately) and you must be willing to sit for the entire duration...
Summary: I've had my mini-disc for about a year and a half. I like it because I can hook it up to my home stereo,and also play it in my car (with cassett adapter) and its got great sound. The part about the batteries is so true.., that is one drawback.
Summary: This player/recorder plays and records very well, is small and lightweight and compact, and looks damn cool. I only have 2 beefs with it: the battery life is terrible, only about 3 1/2 hours using only the rechargable and about 8 with the unsightly battery attacement, which also adds a lot of...
Summary: I'm very glad i bought this minidisc.. it's worth the price I'm paying for and best of all it fits nicely in my pocket without the extra weight of a walkman or a discman. Good shock resistance... no skipping on tracks no matter how hard I tried. Great product...and nice design.
Pros: Durable, worth the price, nice design, compact

Summary: So, you're interested in a Minidisc, eh? Good choice! Minidiscs are just great, beat the pants off CDs and MP3 for portable music. After learning to transfer MP3s to a Minidisc, I'll never go back again, I have seen the light! Now, about this particular player.
Summary: i take several months to decide what minidisc i should buy, i bought de mz-r55 and im very happy with my decition, it has been a year and a half since it belongs to me and i have nothing to complain about it. i had recorded several blanks, like 50, with any problems. i love the remote control.
Summary: I bought my R55 when it was first released in Japan. I was on a concert tour, saw it in the Sony Buildign and in Akihabara and just had to have it for recording my playing.
The audio quality was superb for it's time, though not nearly as nice as my mom's TCD-D100.
