This unit sounds nice and has goos battery life, if you put in a high-capacity camera battery, but that's about where the good bits stop.
This is one of the most counter-intuitive things I've ever had on my hand. Usually, I can pick up a device and figure out how to work it in two minutes or less. With this one, I would be lost without the manual. I consider that inexcusable for somebody like Sony.
Ok, the whole MD system is obsolete by now, and it never caught on in a big way,... (read more)
