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.).
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.
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: Bought this to replace a Zoom recorder that was stolen. Specs and performance are as stated and better than the old Zoom recorder. Download speed is slow - takes 3-4 minutes to download a 300 mbite file to the computer.
Summary: Almost 5 stars. Pros: Very well made and substantial feeling. All the file formats and recording quality choices you could ever want in a non professional or studio device. Good battery life and built in mics. Accepts memory card with more than ample capacity.
Summary: It does exactly what it says to be : excellent quality, simple, reliable and easy to operate. I am using it professionally for interviews on the run. I record on 32 G card, in Wave and mix with Reaper. Sometimes I use a dynamic microphone with a 15 feet cord.
