    "It's so fun to watch greed go down in flames"

    September 24, 2008  |   By ianwjensen

    Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

    Pros

    It's the only thing that will let you download the amazing high quality recordings off of a minidisc player

    Cons

    In their quest to control copyright infringement they made the worst product known to man. I can't tell you how many times I was just organizing my music library and ended up deleting everything. forget all hope if your computer crashes..

    Summary

    at least this is the one of the few examples showing capitalism succeeding.

    "Absolutely appalling"

    July 17, 2008  |   By theleprechaun

    Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

    Cons

    All I'm going to say is that this is the absolutely worst program I have ever encountered. I do not enjoy being locked into the Connect Store for my music downloads because even world's most popular songs are nowhere to be found on their database. But hey, I guess it shouldn't matter now because the Connect Store is now closed and they have given no alternative sites that are compatable with Sony. Thanks for nothing! YOU HAVE TAKEN MANY YEARS OF MY LIFE AS WELL AS MY MONEY AND I WANT IT BACK!!!

    "Sony Software rubbish"

    July 1, 2008  |   By clauskinsky

    Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

    Pros

    Don't like anything about this rubbish. It's huge, it doesn't work, it hangs continually and it won't do what it is supposed to do. All in a great example of how not to do it re music and MP3 players.

    Cons

    There is nothing to like here. It doesn't work and is a Ba****d to uninstal once you have jumped through endless hoops to instal this update from Sony which is supposed to fix problems but simply wades in with more of the same. Shamer, shame, shame. Sony need to get their act together. Why won't it just load mp3 and play them instead of all this rubbish. I wish I had never seen this stupid gadget which is now ytterly useless. Don't waste your time or your MONEY on this SONY RUBBISH.

    "DonĀ“t buy MP3 players that require SonicStage for file transfer!"

    May 27, 2008  |   By karisteinar

    Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

    Pros

    NOTHING

    Cons

    Really slow. Locks up the computer. Navigation is terrible and the user interface is a mess.

    Slow to transfer data (so beware of hardware that requires you to use this software)

    Sony makes some great products but this software is the WORST product I have ever tried.

    If you are thinking of buying a Sony MP3 player, then MAKE SURE you can transfer files without Sonic Stage, if not buy some other player.

    "Does its job, but don't expect more."

    March 21, 2008  |   By coloncm

    Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

    Pros

    It provides a smooth transfer from the desktop to the walkman without hitches or glitches.

    Cons

    Its interface could be improved to a more user friendly because you have to stare at it long enough to become obvious at what stage of the process you are at. Its list view is not easily modifiable, if at all, and again not obvious if so.

    I particularly don't like its attempt at associating every type of sound file possible, then providing a forceful offer to load it on the walkman. For crying at loud, it only has 2GB of space!

    "The new 4.0 version is even worse than the earlier versions"

    March 5, 2008  |   By steelmusicuk

    Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

    Cons

    Everytime i try to import my mp3 files to the program... It freezes. Shyte

    Sony should be ashamed of themselves. I would be better off with a homebrew construction. Now i can't find an early version to download for love or money!
