Summary: Re sony MZ R55 portable Mini Disc....... i didn't receive the exact item which appeared online,and unfortunately the way de adress was written i couldn't even send it back.it was unreadably too bad. For real i dont expect to by anything on Amazon
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: If you want this unit to go out biking or blading or running, you are out of luck. I bought mine last May; by the end of Summer, and after a couple of accidental normal pulls the headphones stop working. At the juncture of the cable and the plug from the remote the inner cables became exposed.
Summary: This is a great mini dosk player. the rp 55 was a great buy. It has great sound quality and the features are top notch. I would have to say though, you have to be careful about dropping it. It is small and fragile. In my opinion this is the best player out.
Summary: I USE IT TO RECORD OLD LP'S AND CD'S. IT IS SO EASY TO CARRY IN MY SMALL PURSES. I BOUGHT TWO OTHERS. ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER AND ANOTHER FOR A FRIEND. WE ALL WISH THERE WERE MORE PRERECORDED MUSIC BY CURRENT ARTISTS. DO YOU CARRY ANY?
Super CD Player........as long as you don't exercise with it

Summary: This is one of the best CD players I have ever owned. It makes excellent copies when recording your own CD and the quality of sound on the playback is excellent! However, I can only give it 3 stars because when jogging with it - the main reason I bought it - it skips constantly.
Summary: Not too fragile! Ive dropped mine from 3 feet onto heaps of surfaces and it still works like a charm! Anyway, minidisks are too expensive at the moment. Wait 5 or 6 months till they go down then buy a system. Take it from me. I bought mine a year ago
Summary: I really enjoy my MZR-55 a whole lot. I mainly take it to the gymn regularly, but of course I take it many places with me. It has great resistance to shock, it never misses a beat. It is built very solid (I'm surprised by others who have reviewed this and don't think so, it is solid!
Summary: I've read the other comments on this unit, and I have to say that they don't provide you prospective buyers with a very accurate view. I've used the Sony MZ-R55, owned a Sony MZ-R50, and own an Aiwa AM-F70 so I can easily compare this unit to others.
Summary: The MZ-R455 is the best purchase I've made in a LONG time. The sound is great, it's VERY easy to record and edit with, and I haven't managed to make it skip yet (I have not been running with it; the toughest test has been some fast, rugged-terrain hiking).
