Summary: If you are looking for something easy to connect to your computer, forget about this one ! It records ok, but the moment you wish to connect via usb ? AMATEUR HOUR CITY !!!!!! Believe me, once you start doing ANYTHING with this piece of junk, you will wish that the thing had a sympathetic nervous system, so that you can inflict PAIN on it. I had to restrain myself repeatedly to toss it against the wall, or stomp it into gear-hell .
Summary: Why 1 star? 1. The recorder eats the 2 AA batteries. After a short time of using them they are hot because they were drained so fast! 2 there is not an impute for an external battery pack. Even if there were, the convenience factor would be lost. 3. You need Apples quicktime to view these files on your computer. 4. When you download the software for the Q2, you get distorted sound, and BAD quality video-do not download and install it. 5.
Summary: I bought this think I could make nice musical videos for YouTube. The unit is pure junk! First if you record in the high quality sound you get a PCM sound attached to your video that WILL NOT PLAY on a computer or mack. The video file will be missing sound. You can't edit it in Pinnacle, Windows movie maker, or any video editing software that I know of. The editing software they give you is junk.
