"Sony PCM-D50 Digital Recorder"4.0 starson by elektric
Pros: Overall Design, Build Quality and Sound Qualtiy
Cons: Memory Stick Only
Summary: I think you covered a lot about the D50 that I noted as well, but you've missed several points that have been covered more extensively by other magazines and websites. One of the bummers I found that was discussed in FutureMusic's D50 review ( http://www.futuremusic.com/news/testdrive/sony_pcm-d50_review.html ) is the fact that Sony forces you to use their proprietary Memory Stick format, which is significantly more expensive than SD cards. In addtion you found that the 2GB file limit was a negative whereas I never had any trouble with that ceiling since you can just hit the Divide button to "refresh" your file size.
