There are two different types of people who will buy this machine: those who need somewhere to store their discs and those who will fill the machine up and continue to periodically swap discs in and out of the player. I am the latter. Knowing that, here are my pros and cons to this unit...
CONS - I have one major gripe: The CD insert booklet, or rather the lack thereof. A few years back, I bought the Sony 200-disc changer. One of my favorite things about it was the two booklets which came in the box. You stick numbers on the clear plastic slots to correspond with the same numbered slots in the actual player, then you slide the insert from the CD's jewel case into the booklet. This gives you quick access to finding out what cd's are in which slots. THERE ARE NO CD INSERT BOOKLETS INCLUDED WITH THIS PLAYER! Oh, that made me mad! Maybe it's just me, but I need those booklets. I called Sony to gripe. Their stance is that all the Mega-Changers come with the new indexing feature, so one can type the cd title right on the unit's display. No need for the booklets, right? Okay, so can a person type all the lyrics to songs on the display? No. Can one transfer the CD cover art onto the digital display? No. Like I said, maybe it's me.
PROS - I put these after the Cons, because the Pros greatly outweigh the Cons. First, there is that indexing feature I mentioned above. Now, I wasn't bashing this feature, just the lack of the CD booklets. There are different ways of indexing the CD's, by artist, title, groups, etc. It may take a little bit of time to type this stuff in, but for the person who uses this player as a storage unit, it may just be worth it. You can store your favorite songs, and even delete the songs you hate.

First of all I love this system, and glad I bought it. The reason I only give 4 stars is because that would mean it is perfect and matches everyone of my needs. Which nothing does unless it was designed specifically for me. But they did a good job.
If you plan on changing the CD's in and out of this system a lot than this isn't the system for you. I have over 400 CD's and I put all of them in there, (up to 400 that is). Yes you can give each Disc a Artist Name and a Disc Title. These names correspond to the slot on the machine NOT the disc. So if you put a new disc in the slot it will be called whatever name you gave the slot. Unless the CD has text display on it. Than it will automatically over write what you typed in and you will have to go back and re-due it for the old disc, if you decide to replace it. This makes it hard if you want to shift discs around or alphabetize them. You CAN'T shift names down a slot. You will have to rename every slot. So once a disc is in it is better to leave it were it is. Use the Keyboard for entering the names. It is much faster than using the unit's jog wheel or remote.
Once you have it all set up. You have 3 program settings you can set up. A program can contain up to 32 "steps", One step may contain a track or a whole disc. I believe program steps can overlap but I am not sure. I have never used the program yet.
There is one Hit List. You can store 32 tracks in the Hit List. Your 32 favorite songs. I have yet to use this feature also.
Now you have 8 Groups. You can assign as many discs as you want to a group. But each disc can be put into only one group. So you can have a Jazz, Rock or Punk group. You can play continuously through the group. Shuffle all the discs in a group or cont/shuffle only one disc of the group.

This is a great piece of equipment--rid yourself of those annoying jewel cases forever! The ability to organize discs by title and artist is excellent. The ability to connect multiple players in series means that you'll always have space for more CDs. Initial set-up is easy--getting all of your disc information input is difficult is hard, but worth it.
My strong recommendation is to go for the more expensive model CDPCX450--the 400 and 450 are identical except that the 450 comes with a remote control that features an LCD screen on which you can see all of the information about the discs in your player. The 400 comes with a plain vanilla remote control--the added user-friendliness of the 450's remote control is definitely worth the extra money! In my opinion, the only reason to buy the 400 is if you connect it in series with the 450, or if it is used purely for background music--where the user is not worried specifically about what is playing, rather is interested in playing a wide variety of discs at random.

This CD changer has great features but does not always work. Fortunatly, its usually a minor inconveience. Lets get the bad news over with. Sometimes I turn the power on and push the play button and nothing happens. Usually this is fixed by turning the system off, waiting a second and turning it on again. Once in a great while I have to unplug it and plug it back in or struggle with turning the power on and off repeatedly before it works. Its inconvenient but it is not a major problem (except I always worry about the player finally going caput). The other bit of bad news is the sound quality. If you use the standard RCA (red and white) connection the sound lacks presence and clarity, especially in the midrange. If you have a good amplifier with a digital in jack you can connect the CD player that way(it has a digital optical out) and the sound improves (since the amplifier does the conversion work). Most casual listeners probably wont notice a difference that concerns them. The changer is bulky and the CD slots are very small. You cannot fast forward or rewind within tracks, only the remote can perform that operation. Finally, it takes a bit for the player to change discs (especially in shuffle mode). However there is some good news. The keyboard input is very helpful for labeling CDs. You can categorize CDs in 8 main groups or up to 200 artist files. Once categorized, you can play all the CDs continuiously or "shuffle" the tracks within those groups or files. So if you want to listen to only your jazz CDs or your Britney Spears or Judas Priest CDs you can do it. If you hate one song on an otherwise good CD, you can use the delete bank so that you will never hear it again (unless you take it out of the delete bank).Read more ›
