Lookin forward to this lil gadget! Best come soon...!
i have just hoping it will arrive before June 4th when I go on holiday.
And I'm hoping I like it better than my NW-HD1, that the buttons don't crack after a couple of weeks use and that the "follow turn" feature actually works as advertised.
I wonder if dukebox.com have actually used a HD5:
"If you rotate the jukebox, the screen always displays its text the right way-up... it looks clever the first time you see it... " No, it doesn't.
"Stuff that is missing from this jukebox... Line out." No it's not..
Maybe they just weren't paying attention.
I was reading around amazon and the sales rank is pretty low!
So despite your error probs, Hrochnick, what do you make of the hd5?
A lot of these review places don't actually use the stuff.
Empire Magazine actually reviewed DVDs based on the specifications they were given by the manufacturer and made stuff up about things like Picture Quality etc. It's incredible.
I like your pics of your hd5 Lyris, makes me want mine even more!
Though I have to say, the only thing that made me sceptical about the 30gb hd5 is those pumpkin buttons! Even if it is a limited ed they still don't look as nice as the other colours...but I guess you have to sacrifice something!
Apart from the problems I've had I'm loving the little gadget. The battery life is great, the ease of use is good and the sound quality is brilliant - for me at least though I'm sure I don't have musicians ears so others may pick up more faults there than I can.
To be honest the 'cracks' thing doesn't overly bother me, it doesn't interfere in any way with the operation but the crashing is annoying. It's been stable for two days now but the average crash has been every other day so I'm due one today. We'll see.
If it does continue I will be seeking a replacement but I need it for this weekend so not until next week, I'll give it a stay of excecution until then. Annoyingly (kind of) I'm away every weekend in June so I'm loathe to send it back unless I really have to as I really want to take it with me.
I hope you are going to be ok but I noticed today that the shipping date for the NW-HD5H had now slipped on Sony Style.
It now says "Shipped begin Jun" as opposed to "Shipped end May" as it was previously.
If you have ordered with them it might be worth giving them a call to see if you can secure one of the first to be delivered.
only works if u start up player in that position = switch off, hold in new position,
switch on again to go to new position = dodgy advertising
Well I spoke to SS and the bloke was next to useless , first he said my order had been cancelled then it wasn't and didn't know the shipping date.They are (hopefully) sending me an e-mail by Monday to let me know ,meanwhile i will pop into sony shop tonight to find out when they are in stock .
i just called SS and was advised that the first batch of HD5H were coming in to them on Wednesday 8th June.
I only ordered mine last sunday but assured me that i would be allocated a player from the first batch they recieve.
hope this helps
I'd rather get a free iPod from www.totallyfreeipod.co.uk then order this.
I was really keen on this player until i have read all the problems ie. screen function and dodgy buttons.....
Edit: pyramid scheme pyramid scheme pyramid scheme
Thanks for that , I may cancel it and get the 20g version then.I am currently burning my cds ready for it at 256kbps , how many would I get at this rate on a 20 g version ?
8th of June! I was hoping it would come this week!
Oh well...just have to wait some more...
I pre-ordered mine on may the 30th.. and it says it is in transit, due to be delivered on June 3rd.. Is the ups site lying to me?
Well mine is now in transit...haven't received an email stating a specific day yet!
what kind of delivery did you get ? mine is also in transit from sonystyle , hope it arrives this week !!!
the free one =) cheap skate lol...well I wasn't gonna pay some ridiculous amount for postage!
lol same here , cheap skate also !!the ups tracker says it is in brussels , do you know where it is being shipped from ?
Yea I read that...and I was like...O..K..may take its time! Have you been sent any emials from ups?
yeah i know , so i can prob rule out getting it by the end of the week !!! . nope no e-mails from ups ..... you ?
Prob best that I don't get it till next week lol! Got exams but they will be over by next weds! I went into Dixons yesterday and was looking at it...it feels sooooo tiny! It's like the same height as the zen micro but wider..way nicer than the ipod!
i can't wait to get it , i'm getting it delivered to my work , so either it comes tomorrow or i'll have to wait till next week
Strange i've ordered it last and got a email from UPS. I got the email on the 1st, I presume thats when they received my money. Mine seems to be goin along like a normal order as opposed to a pre-order. I don't see how it can get to me from brussels in 2 days but we'll see i guess. Fingers crossed.. i haven't even seen a HD5 yet
i preordered mine on the 13th of may , haven't had any e-mail from ups , it says that it was dispatched on the 1st of june , its currently saying its in brussels so don't know when i'll get it !!! can't wait !!!
Let us know if it is any bigger than the 20GB model when u receive it. I phoned the company I preordered mine from and they said they are only expecting their stock in on Wednesday but will post it out on the same day and that I should get it on Thursday. The Sony site says there is no physical difference in size or weight apart from the fact that the one is 30GB, but I am sure I saw a 9gram and 1mm in each direction difference in the dimensions on another site...
No worries, will do . i thought that the 30gb version was only available from sony style ?
