I'm sorry to see another brilliant Sony format die because of poor decisions from their marketing division. Someone sold them out in the US and killed the Minidisc by forcing the stupid copy restrictions into the hardware. Especially as most other manufacturers were making melody players/recorders without those is unit is the best Minidisc ever created in my opinion. It's a masterpiece of engineering and crafted with wonderful perfection. It has a feel that is unlike any other product in its class. I won't bother with a lengthy review since it is no longer available. I am sad however that the latest 18 years of minidisc in the US shop was so disappointing and such a failure. It should have been a thousand times more successful than it was. Maybe someone in the industry will grow a brain and realize this was an example (as DAT was also) of consumers sending a notice to Congress, the electronics and the melody industry, voting with their pocketbooks.
This small machine is awesome... I use it to play melody copied from CDs (I ride the train to work) and to record live music. What puts this unit in a class by itself is the ability to record through the line-In or mic-In straight to 1Gig MD and then USB to PC and convert to wav... Nobody else can do that, that I know of... that was the missing link --- Yea Sony! of course, from there, u can do anything you wish with the digitized music: edit, layer tracks, crossfade with other music, burn CD, MD, the web, whatever... I also required a amazing stereo mic for recording live melody and rehearsals. I picked the Sony ECM-MS907 Stereo Microphone. It's small, sturdy and adequate, but the threads on the included adaptor don't fit standard mic stands, and the Sony mic won't fit in the adapter that comes with, say an SM57 or SM58... bummer... I also required closed headphones. The Sennheisers are amazing for rehearsals, etc, but uncomfortable on long train rides,,, the Sony MDR-EX71SL/WK ear buds fixed that problem... OK Here's something you can't do,,,, you can,t transfer songs to and from your PC on AC power, 'cause you can't cradle the MZ into the AC adapter and plug in the USB cord at the same time... I know... tha's dumb... The Sonic Scene is adequate after you make batter it from the Sony sight,,, and you need to the MP3 and WAV conversions tools also $FREE$ ... You have to have Sonic Scene installed in to install these other tools... OK here's another gotcha,,, An MD that was loaded from Sonic Scene knows what computer it came from, so you CAN'T take your MZ-NH1 to your mates house and your Sonic Scene songs to his Sonic Scene so he can create a copy of your disc ... naa-daa ... u obtain a nasty notice saying something like "This MD wasn't recorded on your mates computer so fuhgetaboutit" ... tha's wack'd Sony ... You CAN record directly from a CD to an MD loaded in the MZ through the Line-In, thus bypassing Sonic Scene step, but Line-In means analog so some degradation will occur (You can record your favorite TV present here, but why?). Oh yea, the troops created out of some kind of alloy from outer-space (Cryptonite, i think), it feels like an indestructible cigararette case (looks like one too) ... but here's the gotcha... the remote's just painted plastic, it works good, lights up, etc, but it feels like if you accidentally stepped on it, it'd crunch like a cockroach... Still, with the line-in, mic-in recording capabilities, 1GB disk capacity, WAV & MP3 conversion software, tank-build and very amazing sound, this unit is method ahead of the CD/MP3 players, I-Pods and other portable troops availabe today...
After my old MD didn't work as amazing as before, I decided to a fresh one and the best one so I chose the most expensive coz I believe that if the is so high then there must be something amazing in it. Yeah! I bought MZNH1 I was innocent coz I didn't know about the USB items and all but when I use it I was surprised to see that this little ,thin aluminium Hi-MD player could do a lot of things. The sonic scene 3.2 is invincible. The one that's attached in the box is sonicstage 3.0 so u guys will have to it from the The sound is true cool even though I think I would recommend u guys to fresh headphones. The ones they give us aren't that good. The recording sound is amazing and they have the date and time to allow us see when we recoded it too. Mic, u will have to it urself. I know that some of u guys might think Ipod is much better and all but I wish to assure u that MZNH1 or other models of Hi-MD is as amazing as Ipod, maybe the style isn't that cool to u all but those who wish to be special and not like those ppl sitting in the subway or tube wearing white ear plugs with the pround face thinkihng they're so cool, should this MZNH1. I love one of the comment in here comparing Ipod with the wristband everyone is wearing. I agree!!!! U guys should check outthe sony www service for further information......
i recently bought the sony mz-nh1 for recording live shows, and i couldn't be happier. you can transfer your recording to your computer, create cd's (with sony WAV converter) and then format the minidisc and use it again! awesome
MD's are one of the things I love best. Ever since 92, I'm this device largest fan. However, with 1G of information, Sony succeeded to F**k this product beautiful bad.Why?Terrible software. Actually not good isn't even tickle the true definition of the sonic stage, but I suspect that the true word to describe it can't be published on respectable website like Amazon. First of all you can't just transfer your melody - you have to re-encode it. For the regular net MD, that's not so bad, for 30 songs. For this one - you have 200 songs; it will take you an e GUI was probably designed by a blind person, and one that doesn't know computers at all. It's so frustrating to locate the songs to transfer, and you obviously can't use Windows explorer to do so. And this isn't even the start!... if you are trying to transfer too a lot of songs at once it will just stuck, and you have to disconnect the device and close the "software" through the task manager. Not convinced yet? Here's another jam. Sonic scene will "organize" the songs for you, disregarding any organization that you had on your HD (or any reason what so ever), this extremely bizarre method of rearranging everything in to create it as possibly hard for the user (I hope that it will not be you!) to actually search the song/s he wants is quite astounding. Still wanna this? Wait just a second. Whenever you are deleting or adding songs to your "device", sonic will recalculate the whole DB!!! That's right; it will load all the songs, then rearrange, and then loads all of them again. This has something to do with the protection Sony have. For regular net MD this is not taking long. For 1Gb of data? You want you were buying an MP3 player. This is what I'm going to do. You think it's over? It's not.If you don't have the remote (this is only real for this unit) you can't do anything. And guess what! The DC charger, can not connect while you are transferring melody from your PC. That's right. Sony will create you choose: charge the device, or transfer the music. It's taking twice they time? You have time, according to Sony. Otherwise you would be buying an MP3 player that you can drag and drop songs to it, easy connection, simple to charge (with regular batteries!) and plays immediately whatever you load. Sure, you can't have multiple discs, but test to compile couple of full ones and you will understand that nothing worth this torture. I have bought 10 1GB MD's. I have recorded on 2. I just can't do it anymore. And either will you.
I got the MZ-NH1 a couple of weeks ago and I am thrilled with it.Let me sum it up:PROS* I gigabyte MD is great* Over 7 hours of melody using ATRAC3 256kbps, 2nd highest quality, and sounds beautiful* Full Magnesium Body* Small, Slim, and Solid Device* Long Battery Life - Gumstick Rechargeable battery* Sweet Cradle* Finally we have Transfer from MD to PC-important note- When the file is transferred it's in sony's omg format which you can only play using the sonicstage software. However, there is official news that Sony will come out with a program that will allow you convert the "omg" file intoa wave.* Mic recordings still sound incredible* No check in - check out, but you still have to use SonicStage Software to transfer melody to player* You can drag and drop files-note- If you drag and drop mp3s it will place the file on the disc but you won't be able to play it through the player, must use sonic stage.* Backwards compatible with old minidiscs* You can record from literally almost any source of NS* headphones included aren't too amazing (no biggie)This player is sweet
Whenever I am going to work, I cant support to message all the people sitting around me on the train with their stylish iPod. They are just cool fad as are those yellow rubber bracelets that cost a dollar. Apple should have just added the yellow bracelet in the packaging! "I really dont wish an iPod, but my mates have one so I'll dish out 250.00 so I can look cool." This is why I didnt wish an iPod. They are dumb and trendy. This Mini Disk player will obliterate any iPod ever made. Just look at the specs and compare. Ok, sure some iPods can keep more music, but who wants a device who's internal battery will only latest you about a year or so under normal use. Not only do Mini-Disk players superior sound, but they are long lasting. I myself have dropped my player a lot of times over the past two years and it still plays and records like the first time I used it. So do yourself a favor and obtain a Mini-disk player and stand out, unless you wish to be like everyone else on that train or bus or wherever with their small iPods and white earbud headphones. If you got an iPod for Christmas, it on EBAY so some poser out in suburban America can look cool with their yellow LIVESTRONG s:-Fast Data Transfer-Excellent sound-Durabilty/Reliable-Easy to use-Record all types of digital melody files-Not an iPodCons:Ahem,...it's not an iPod!
I have been an MD user for a couple of years now. I finally got this amazing Hi-Md unit and I am very happy thus far. The unit is really sleek and sturdy; light, but at the same time has a rugged feel to it. The sound is amazing. Do yourself a favor and a amazing pair of phones for th unit. The phones that come with it do not do justice. I splurged and got the shure ec3s, and the sound is amazingly clear. SonicStage 2.2 has come a long method since OpenMG; and keeping in mind that when we are talking about transfering, we are actually talking about burning a cd; the transfer speed is very good.Of course the huge drawback is that there is no Apple help for the MD; but for the sound, the features (digital recording; microphone recording that is at pcm quality) I can live with that drawback. i have a dedicated windows laptop for my ing from just being an ipod user for the latest 7 months; the batter life on this thing is trully amazing. In the two weeks that I have had it; I had to charge the battery just three times (including the initial time), and then I just listen to melody hours and hours each day. I am using hi-sp for my songs which equates to 7 hrs of melody at the 1gb disk, and 2 hrs of melody at the regular MD disks formatted under the Hi-Md scheme. One word of advice; to have fun the sound fidelity to its fullest, you will need to begin with a lossless format; in my testing if I begin the conversion from a compressed format already e.g., MP3, Atrac3 to AtracPlus; there is some distortion and artifact introduction. However, I believe this has to do with the sensitive earphones that I have. If you use medium grade earphones you should be tom line, I think the MD format is here to stay; real it's not for everybody, but those of us that are used to the small quirks that come with the system (sony's drm leaves something ot be desired), love these small machines.
Guess this product is sort of superceeded by iPod's and other MP3 players, but if you have an old minidisc player and wish additional capacity along with compatibility with your old MD's, this is the method to go. In the end it is now just another gadget in my drawer of toys, with very infrequent use. Sound is in my opinion better than mp3 format files, but limited storage 1G is still too small.
Cons. this was so and flimsy we had to create it sturdier by cementing poles into cement 5 gallon buckets. The net is only a foot from top toBottom of net, but does reach fairly high. It's simple for an adult to switch between a volleyball jet and tennis net but any youngin won't be able to do s. For $20 it gives you a summer of fun. The rackets and items is decent quality. Be warned though the volleyball isn't really a volleyball. It works and all sets up fine.If paying more then $20-$25 it's not worth it. There a better sets. However if you just wish something fun for the family, and your children aren't overly destructive, then this set is perfect. If you have children, be warned the poles are 3/4" hollow plastic poles. While they do sway before being tied down, it's actually not a poor thing as it gives flexibility to them in a method I was worried would break e net is real to size in 5 yards. Needs to anchor in ground so wouldn't work well on a cement patio.Overall I'd recommend it to the majority of families, but this won't be right for everyone. It's a one season present for sure, and the little net is poor on my OCD
You can't lose with this point. I had children coming over for a party and wanted to create sure they had some fun activity outside of the house and this really hit the money. The children came in the house, saw all the outdoor equipment and ran out to the net with excitement. Even the adults came out to join them. It was a latest min that worked better than expected. These are not professional grade items, and shouldn't be used as such. These are primary stuff for fun family time. I place the net up, which seemed to be a small flimsy, but the anchors are holding up now for more than 2 weeks and it doesn't seem to have moved. My athletic nephews were pulling on the net and it held its ground. One or two readjustments and we were fine. Glad Amazon is so convenient.
Probably the best 32 bucks I've ever spent. I set this thing up once and it's held up through wind and rain. Only thing is on the bottom of the net the screws don't keep up well so I did have to tie it up a bit but after that little problem worked great
This item is not even worth the $20. The box was handed to me opened and the item was used and missing pieces. And the volleyball is a green children ball.
I mean this isnt going to latest long but its a steal if youd like a small entertainment and can commit to being tender and caring...the ball for the volley ball net is beautiful durable its survived a couple months of living with my child, which is saying alot loooool...I bought this to entertain scouts on our camping trips and so far everything's been great...if you live in a windy zone though I wouldnt really recommend it though...we had a windy day come through and I had to take down the net cause it looked like the poles wouldve snapped they were rather mad lol
Haven't had long enough to give a thorough review. However, I wanted to address the problem some people have mentioned in that they had a missing needle for the pump to inflate the volley ball.( which is little btw). Their needles may have indeed been missing. however: ours pump had a sticker identifying that the needle is located in a hidden spot in the handle of the pump. The end of the pump has a little round top that can be lifted .
Not all that sturdy, but it functions how it should. Poles are beautiful thin, so I don't expect it to keep up to a lot of abuse. My children have played with it for about 3 months now, and nothing it falling apart yet, or broke. So that's a plus. It was a Christmas show for them, when it was delivered, they knew what it was because it came in a box like you would obtain at a store. So if you are going to use it as a gift, have it sent to a mates house, so you can hold it secret for a while.
Bought for my grandchildren to have something to do outdoors when visiting. It's lightweight enough for kids but I think it wouldn't keep up well for adults. My only negative is that the pump to inflate the volleyball was missing the needle to create the pump work, but I had another ball we could use. Nice set of 5 things to do at a very reasonable price.
I am fresh to Coachmen. I Received my ID cards and the letter touted the amazing Coach-net app. So I downloaded this app. Nothing in the letter I received said hey this application will not work on your phone. Only after spending a lot of time trying to obtain the application to work and seeing error "265". I finally called Coachmen and I was told they know it will not work on newer phones. They do not tell you upfront. Not a amazing welcome. If I were the CEO I would kick the IT guys in the butt and tell them to obtain it fixed.
One flaw -> 2 stars Not knots is my one stop for anything I do with rope. But they left out the list of alternative knots at the bottom of each knot's page. They have this on their website. The missing lists of any knot's alternatives makes finding knots in this application a frustrating, futile exercise.
Amazing app, but it would be even better if there was a method to default some functions to the current network/IP Address. For example, if I wish to do a Subnet Scan, it could default to the current network? At the moment I have to go elsewhere to search my current info and then come back to input them manually.
This is a amazing application from a amazing developer. However it forces RUN AT STARTUP. Also it should let real application exit. Net Sentry should be an optional feature. It is not a feature i use. I consider it poor practice when apps force run at startup especially for optional features that may not be used. It seems that you could better manage this situation --- like only run at startup if net sentry is enabled ... and advise user on implications of enabling Net Sentry.
Really helps figuring out the bandwidth hog and where / why there's problems and between the modem page and this I can see ports and other networks that I method aware folks could do. Someone is using almost like a direct connect for something here but the seem to be drawing band width on a network that no one here has setup. I'll HAVE to check that out. A bit to coincidental for it not to be a hot spot.
I've noticed several bugs that have gone from annoying me off. The bug happens as I'm scanning a windows 10 computer which becomes slow. When I picked up my phone to look at it the first time, it changed the screen rotation, which cleared my port scan out. Then I tried again, and my screen shuts off during the scan. Well guess what? The scan disappears again. This is after waiting well over 10 minute to scan 9000 ports. It's pulling up a lot of begin ports too which should probably be closed.
I use Ping & Net to compare response times for different VPN servers. Speed testing apps try the speed of their own servers in the VPN server area, which I doubt gives an accurate comparison; they also grab private information. For what I do with this product, it seems to work well. I like that it requires no permissions and apparently sends no unnecessary personal info back to the mother ship as Google and Fb do.
There are a lot of fake network tools on Google Play or loaded with ads or spyware. This is totaly FREE OF ADS! LOVE IT. However,my favorite tool is PingPlotter from Pingman, but it is not available for Android device and they don't seem to have that in their roadmap. Otherwise; I can highly recommend this app!
This application has it ALL plus some!! And SO accurate! I've been having connection issues on LTE, downloaded 4 or 5 "other" ping/tracerroute/etc. apps plus was using online ping/tracers, but still couldn't search the problem. Five mins with this application & I promptly deleted everything else & found my issue (don't yet know how to fix my problem, but I finally see it)! It's been more than 10 hours & I can't stop playing on this app! :-) A HUGE thank you to the developer.
