  1. Those Victor discs look quite nice. Which do you have left ?
  2. I'm sure a great portion of U.S. members are in california or new york. The bulk, however, seems to be scattered around the world. The minidisc is quite the mistress =o
  3. hahahaha. I think the Yaris prices are pretty solid unless it's a loaded model!
  4. Hi guys, I just got to the points of launching a Toyota accessory website for our dealership. Just wanted to extend the site here to see if anyone is interested =] www.LongoParts.com Any feedback regarding navigation or product line would be appreciated. I'm the first person to attemp this for our company so we're all basically learning as we go haha. Thanks, Jeff
  5. misinformation on my part. i just read the wikipedia files on umd =o
  6. I bet if MD was used as a standard external drive instead of iOmega's "ZIP"... it'd have a more prominant stance today. If Hi-MD was introduced sooner (circa the lifetime of the iOmega JAZZ drive), then that would have been a no-brainer. Since MD was pushed toward remaining a portable music only format it wasn't allowed the chance to grow as it could have. I only have one today because I wanted to have something different than every other iHead on the street. Plus the recording aspect is VERY nice. I'm not one to record too many things, but it's nice to know it's possible =O Even the PSP people (www.pspmods.com) say MD is crap... and UMD will have the same fate. The ignorance of the moderators (I think it's run by high schoolers? lol) didn't show the global lifespan of MD. Granted it's on a decline now, but it was pretty damn successful for a while (at least in Asia). From what I've been reading, it seems the UMD is basically a modified Hi-MD format. It was encased in that funky casing so discourage homebrew applications being placed on HiMD discs (via md units) and creating a whole new pirating category. Even now, exploits in certain games/older firmwares are allowing pirates to distribute psp games for loading onto memory sticks. If the UMD was kept in a Hi-MD style casing, at least Sony would be selling some Hi-MDs vs just a few lowly memory sticks. =O I can't wait for the PS3... I hope it has a MD add-on option =O
  7. I'm getting between 12 - 15 hours at Hi-SP256. With the AA battery (I'm using high capacity one-time use Sony batteries... found them cheap...) it seems to hit near 22 hours x_X
  8. Sold (pending payment) to Jillako. Thanks for the interest everyone =]
  9. Final call. $215 shipped vip UPS ground... brand new in box, includes 2 additional 1400mah gumstick batteries and receipt. The color is the black (which looks like a carbon fiber weave when viewed with direct lighting).
  10. *bump* $220 shipped anyone? brand new! will include receipt.
  11. I hope Hi-MD is integrated in the PS3 as the memory card device!!! How cool would that be?! Granted, the current build price (rumor or fact?) is at $900 so the substantial loss they are taking probably wouldn't justify adding hundred or so dollars more equipment =P Maybe even just including a normal MD disc w/ each game for specific memory and slight expansion possibilities as opposed to a dedicated one for all games... that may also be cool =P Sadly I jumped on the MD market near its (supposed) death, but it's definitely a great item!
  12. I bought a gift for my bro but he wanted a iRiver video player instead... so I have this other unit sitting around. I purchased it new for $230 so I'm hoping to sell it for that price, BUT I'll throw in the extra batteries =D I'll post it on eBay for a private auction if anyone is interested (eBay id: bovitz) Otherwise I'll just have to give it as a birthday present that may confuse many LOL Thanks! J
  13. oops... you're right. it does come w/ a 1350 mah battery... iono x_x i have 6 extra 1400 mah batteries sitting at my house lol... lol... I get about 28 hours playback using MP3s when I used the fully charged 1350 mah battery and 1 Sony Stamina Platinum AA battery (got those during a price glitch on amazon lol, 4 packs were only 70 cents each).
  14. did you get the 1400 mah batteries? if so, i heard the md unit will limit it to charge to 370 mah (the battery that came w/ it) so that it doesnt overcharge. You need an external charger to get full usage of the 1400 mah battery. So it's logical if the 1400 mah is only being charged to about 400 mah (about 1/3) so it shows a lot battery. Is the battery life similar to a fully charged included battery (370 mah)?
