Linguistic LingField(s):  Not Applicable

Query:   In my research I do sociolinguistic interviews and ethnographic
fieldwork and submit data to phonetic analysis (i.e., vowel formant
analysis). I would like to know how portable minidisc recorders have
performed in the field and also back in the lab. Are they
sturdy--that is have the withstood normal abuse any better or worse
than other technologies? How do they perform with respect to the ease
and speed in digitizing, copying, organizing tracks, etc. Right now
I'm considering the Sony MZ-N707. I would happily take
recommendations for (or warnings about) specific recorders and
peripherals too. I will post a summary of responses, if response
