4-0 out of 5 stars Atlast- great storage capacity
Having gotten the new 1 gb 45 hour disc mini disc, I am happy because it is now possible to get on one disc what I previously had to spread over 34 standard 80 minute discs. If I want, I can store about 900 songs, or 70 cd's, or save a whole year of voice lessons.

Can you imagine how great it is to no longer worry about running out of disk space or having to delete tracks to create space, or using a lot of discs.

For $6.99 for 45 hours, this is $0.15 per hour compared to about $1.50 per disc for the standard 80 minute discs, so the value is incredible.

If you have an older MD player you may find this HI-MD to be incompatible with that software, so be sure your player is compatible or that you have updated software before buying. My MZN HF800 (reviewed separately) is compatible.

I highly recommend this.If you find this review helpful please click yes.

5-0 out of 5 stars MINIDISC IS FOREVER!!
This disc can hold up to 40 discs on one mini.The sound quality is perfect.These discs can be hard to find in the stores,but they are available at www.minidisco.com.They even are available in 10 and 20 packs.I would also suggest buying the sony MZ-NH1.It's a little pricey,but the sound quality is excellent.It's almost as small as a minidisc and you can do everything from the remote.You can even download to and from your computer.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Minidisc Improved
The Sony HMD1G Hi_MD minidisc is now a little bit more available

and is really a good idea. It is a major improvment on the

original minidiscs which only held 60 mins., 74mins., and 80mins.

The new one holds just under Eight (8) hours of music or data

when recorded in the standard play mode. Quite an accomplishment

for Sony. I have to agree with the other reviewer who opines that

Sony does not seem to be making a decent effort to "sell" their

product. IT is almost as if they want this format to go the way

of "BETA" or "DAT" One would think that Sony would want to

recoup the R+D money invested in this format. I personally think

that $6.98 for a disc that holds as much as this one does is

a great buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars HiMD-1G minidiscs
This product is in my Country and all Europe still 1/2 Year not aviable. And through Amazon.com also. Why ?
Be aware before you will buy Hi-MD Players !!!
And really rating is minus 5 stars.

Thank You

3-0 out of 5 stars Unobtanium...
I have been using a NE410 Net-MD walkman that I got from Walmart 6 months ago and I like the convinience and compactness of it, although it only holds 50 songs per disc with the LP4 codec. I got a NH600 HI-MD Walkman recently and this new technology makes soo much more sence. It can fit 300+ songs on one disc with the 64 Kbps ATRAC3plus codec (that's equal to 128 Kbps in MP3 quality). I can fit all 200+ of my CD's on 5 HI-MD discs.

The thing I don't like right now is that Sony, as usual sold millions of players, and only a small handfull of recordable discs for them, so you're stuck bidding on ebay, or waiting on backorder from the vendors. Plus the 10 pack of HI-MD discs are only sold in Canada, whats up with that? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Quality discs with great colors
Memorex and other brands tend to be a bit less expensive, but I've found that the build quality of these Sony color minidiscs are better. And since they only are few cents more per disc, why not spend a little more for the quality? The colors allow you to color-code your collection, but you probably would have to buy these minidiscs in bulk for it to be worthwhile. I use these with my portable MD player which can record/transfer up to 6hrs of audio onto each minidisc. The included carrying case is handy and is small enough to fit in a coat pocket. My only complaint is that you probably wouldn't want to cover up these pretty little discs with the mundane labels Sony includes. There's a frosted finish on the face of these minidiscs so that you could write on it with a fine marker, but since many of the discs are dark, they would be hard to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Space... the final frontier
Well, I have many of these discs and they are very useful.The quality is perfect.

What makes them even better is that on some Sony mini disc players you can use long play recording modes to record for 160 or 320 minutes.My model is mzn 707 so I am sure all the newer models have this feature.

This is handy because if you record a lot you run out of space very quickly. If you record live material onto your computer you use tons of space (about 20 mb a minute), which is a problem.

Because the files are huge it is necessary to convert to mp3s. For this, I use Cool Edit 2000 available at www.syntrillium.com.

If you do record a lot may I recommend you also check out the new 1gb minidisc for newer model players.

With the new 1 gb 45 hour disc HI-MD mini disc it is now possible to get on one disc what I previously had to spread over 34 standard 80 minute discs. If I want, I can store about 900 songs, or 70 cd's, or save a whole year of voice lessons.

For $6.99 for 45 hours, this is $0.15 per hour compared to about $1.50 per disc for the standard 80 minute discs, so the value is incredible.

I highly recommend this. If you find this review helpful please click yes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sony is the best all around
Okfirst of all these mini disc are like game cube dics actualy a little smaller... but the are in a little floppy like diskette. I just had to clear that up becuase every where i went like best buy would tell me that they were just cds but their not. O well they still r awesome and id have to say that these sony dics are the best you can get. though i think the next time i need mini dics i think ill get the sony golds. SO no matter wut ever u like more the colors or the gold id have to say that sony is the way to go .

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product. Totally worth the money.
I bought these SONY Colour Collection blank mini-discs for using with my MZ-R55, and they are excellent. No sound distortion, and definitely no comparison with the Memorex discs. Nothing flimsy here. Only quality, and 5 pretty colours. I really like the charcoal tone one.
What's even better, is that I can put all the discs away in the storage case, and not worry about where they are individually, because they are always there together. If you didn't know already, the colours are: emerald, topaz yellow, charcoal, sapphire and ruby. Even though there are only 8 pieces, there are obviously not two of each colour. If I am right, most sets come with 2 ruby, 2 topaz yellow, 2 emerald, 1 sapphire and 1 charcoal.

Anyhow, these discs withstand a lot of shock, and are to me, shock-resistant. I like the individual little cases they come in too. Nice touch with the transparent white plastic.

Well, these discs are totally worth the money, especially being 80 minutes. I can get lots of songs on them, and they're great for recording entire albums from MP3s.

Great Buy! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Supreme quality for a few cents more
I've tried Sony, TDK and Memorex minidiscs, and they're all fine, especially for downloading .mp3's or even uncompressed CD type .wav and .pcm files.However, I wouldn't dream of using anything but these professional quality HHB minidiscs for my live music recordings.They're only a quarter or two more expensive per disc, but you know you're getting archival quality.I've never had a failure, and I can't believe the fidelity of live music recorded directly onto this brand of minidisc.Sometimes the recording sounds better than the actual live performance!Give these MD's a try! ...
