Great device for recording auditions and concerts, and uploading video to YouTube

Wild Thornberry, Amazon
30 March 2015
  • Summary: This is a great little recording device, good for uploading video of a budding musician (auditions and concerts) to YouTube. It arrived in all the proper packaging but did not seem 100% brand new since the serial number was rubbed a bit and there were one or two tiny nicks on the device as well as a...

  • Summary: Not just for musicians. Good for certain kinds of legal documentation/investigation situations where you need to pick up great audio and video is also desirable but it doesn't have to be theater-quality (although I must say the video performance in low light is very decent).

  • Summary: The audio quality is great. Video quality just ok. The lo gain mic setting handles very high spl - almost any concert level. The hi setting is much more sensitive. I often wish for a medium setting. Battery life is a little disappointing, probably because the display never turns off.

Outstanding Audio, Good Video

Louis G Yznaga, Amazon
17 September 2013
  • Summary: In a "nutshell" the Q3HD is a High End stereo recorder with video capability. I play in a "weekend warrior" cover band and the Q3HD is perfect for capturing our "live sound".

Great sound, decent video, horrible battery life and features.

  • Summary: The video quality isn't that good and the battery life is horrible, but the sound quality is very good and that's what I bought it for, so I guess it's okay. Good product. Firmware/UI is behind the times in my opinion.

Q3HD Video Audio recorder.

darren storey, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: A lot of bang for the buck. I recommend getting the accessory kit. Its necessary. Does exactly what it says it will do. I put all the settings on high and record one song at a time then download to something else....downloaded the processing program to old pc and it works well too.

  • Summary: there is a switch quality of sound recording but no mic volume. So it is either high or low sensibility then you have to adjust the volume in post production

Suits my purposes and sound quality is excellent

Janis Jeffreys, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: I am a karaoke jockey trying to better my stage show. I have had this recorder for a few months, and I am a novice using this sort of device. I needed a recorder that would capture great sound no matter what setting and video was secondary and that is why I decided on the Q3HD.
