I watched it all... and I agree with him on 3 things (portable units)

- buying junk units could make you losing your money after all (but he did that for the demo and by design curiosity) 

- better buy a complete unit set with almost all the accessories than the unit alone cheaper

- Sony is the best even if some brands have done some particular nice looking units or well-built units

His choice of auction lot was poor. Lots of basic units, but from non-Sony/Sharp manufacturers. No remotes or AA battery packs included, so very hard to properly check if units might work. You need those things BEFORE you get that sort of bulk lot. Not a lot of recorders, so less value overall. 

Yes, that's true. But they are two different ways. One is like buying a pack of lollies you can see inside. The other is a pack of different lollies you won't know until you open the packet. Also, a complete unit set still might not work. A bulk lot can have working units. Different sellers, different approach to testing. 

To each their own. Different sounds, looks, weight, remotes, etc

If i had infinite amounts of money I might have squandered $500 on the printer and a couple of cartridges that some kind soul is retailing on eBay. Neat as it is, I don't care enough, especially since the gizmo only works with SP disks (or that's what it looks like). Something in the protocol for MDLP must be different (remember the "LP" indicator?)

A few things occur to me in relation to that latest video: 

- What's the point of putting track titles on a label that you're then going to insert in a machine so you won't be able to see them?

- For the effort involved (using Google translate not the least of them), you may as well make your own print template on a PC and type it up/print it yourself: then you can save it on the comp and edit if you ever change the contents.

- The fonts and labels are pretty ugly, IMHO. Another reason to design your own.

- If that machine can extrapolate the titles from the tracks on the disc, unless it has some kind of Shazam-like reader you must have gone to the trouble of writing them to the TOC in the first place so why do it all over again?

OMG Sony Insiders is back... What has happened @sfbp Stephen ?

Still waiting to hear the inside(rs) story........

We did have a report just before the site went down that it seemed likely all passwords were compromised. IF you use any password here on some other site, you had better change both pretty quickly.

Nice to see you, too Philippe.

Might be worth putting something in the Announcements sub forum about this? People might not see it here?

So far I have refrained because I don't want to panic everyone resulting in the death of the site.

The easiest way is to get an automatically generated one which is saved automatically, eg by Firefox but I am sure there are lots of options. The important thing is NOT to use the same PW in multiple places. If there's anything you care about, that is, on any of them.
