battery life, sound quality, small, cool looking
Long seek times, recording track marks
I have a Sony MZ-R90 US model and I have had it for a week and really like it. It has great battery life (12 hours) and sounds really good. It's the tiniest MD player/recorder on the market and not only that but it has the option of adding on 1 AA battery and increasing the battery life to 29 hours. Also the remote for the R90 is very cool looking and very easy to use with its backlit screen and lever on the side for changing songs. This unit is the coolest looking one that I have ever seen; the blue is a very nice color. Plus with the menu options its very easy to use. My gripe about the unit is that it sometimes adds in extra track marks inbetween songs when recording MP3's. Also, another thing is that the unit does take a long time to switch from song to song and to start from a dead stop, but it really isn't that serious of a problem. This unit is fairly easy to use and is very cool. It still isn't perfect though.
