Summary: This is a great product. The quality of recordings are amazing both for voice and music. I've used it both for podcasting and recording music. The only downside is that there is not an external speaker - so you can't really hear anything until you download the recording.
and I've never owned a recording device like this one before

Summary: I'm not an especially tech-savvy person, and I've never owned a recording device like this one before. But it's very easy to record and play back using the Roland R-05, and now I'm working on the next level of functions (saving files to my computer, deleting files I no longer need, etc.).
Summary: This accurately captures binaural sound just as your own hearing would. The controls are lain out in a way that is easy to comprehend. The sound is top notch. It sounds like you're in a 3d sound environment. There is a mic input as well as a line-in.
Great recorder, delivers better sound than larger, more expensive devices

Summary: Perfect size. I wanted a recorder that was smaller than the newer mammoth portable recorders that seem to pervade the marketplace nowadays. I don't need XLR inputs, and I don't need multi-track recording.
The device takes excellent recordings for its size

Summary: The device takes excellent recordings for its size. The rating to 40kHz is no joke either- I accidentally recorded a bat the other day chirping around 30kHz. The devices is shaped well to handle, feels sturdy, and has nice buttons, so it has a tactile impression of quality.
Summary: This recorder is very small and is about the size of a thick pack of cigarettes or a couple deck of cards. It records sounds with very high quality. I use mine for podcasting and screencasting. I would buy again if I had to.
Probably can't get any better than this for the price

Summary: I almost gave this recorder 5 stars because I figure it's good as you can get for the price. If I could I'd give it 4.5 stars I would because I wonder just a little bit. The auto song split function was a huge factor for my decision of buying this and it works!
Summary: This machine is perfect. I used it with external microphones I already had, and I love the sound output. For the price though, I do wish the microphones were a bit clearer in terms of stereo recording.
Summary: I ordered this to record oboe audition recordings for music school auditions. This recorder is extremely intuitive to operate and has every feature I could ask for. I used an Audio Technica condenser stereo microphone. I love that the Roland R-05 provides switchable phantom mic power.
