    I like the idea but I think it will all boil down to the cost of the hardware.

    If you can get an ipod cheaper than a new minidisc player and some media then I know what most people will go for.

    Then again, I suppose that will be weighed up against whether or not you already have a huge minidisc collection.

    I do like the idea of using them for data. Now all we need is to replace the humble floppy disc drive with a minidisc drive and the world will be a better place.

    Considering you are looking at around $305 for the same storage space as a 15 gig iPod that retails at $300 I can't see them really taking off unless you're a massive fan of the format.

    Whats the point of that ? You can get a DVD+RW drive for a stupid low price now.

    I'd prefer the size and durability of minidiscs over a DVD to be honest. Although yes, it doesn't sound like it will take off as a mainstream product with all the other options for storage now.

    After being completely dissapointed with the poor quality and features of even the best range Net-MD, I will be staying well clear of this and buying an iPOD.

    don't get me wrong, I am a fan of minidisc, I just think this'll pass.
