From the January 1996 subject of PC World:
Sony has nice hopes for its MiniDisc Knowledge format because the next-generation mass storage media. And why not? On the floor, it has so much going for it. A clean 2.5-inch magneto-optical MiniDisc affords 140MB of rewritable storage, and Sony guarantees the discs will be rewritten greater than one million occasions with no lack of knowledge integrity.
MD Knowledge was emblematic for the MiniDisc format as an entire. Nice know-how, however far too costly for most individuals, and all the time outdone by rising competing codecs (CD-R, MP3 gamers). Nonetheless, I used MiniDisc right through highschool and college, properly into the smartphone period, and I’ll all the time contemplate it my favorite music format.
