The device takes excellent recordings for its size

Kyle Finn, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • 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. My primary complaint is the boot-up time. Mine takes 17 seconds to turn on, which can be very frustrating for impulsive recording. The controls are a bit silly.

Probably can't get any better than this for the price

R. A. Smith, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • 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! I'm still getting used to it, there are 3 settings for the function so I went from the most sensitive one (which would interrupt songs, ha) to the middle setting (there are only 3 settings for this feature) and so...

Almost perfect...

  • 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.

Roland R-05 Studio WAVE/MP3 Recorder

David Hemphill, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • 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. Removing the memory card to transfer file to computer would be much faster except for the time it takes to remove the card - it is not easy. It is used to record church services from the main sound system.

Very well made recorder

Deerfield Brent "Brent", Amazon
27 November 2013
  • 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. Great for recording practice sessions or the occasional live performance with surprisingly good fidelity. Marries to other devices easily.

Buy it with confidence

Henri Laban, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • 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. There is no attenuation nor rumble with power induction. Batteries last many hours. Very good product and pricing affordable.

Works well for field recordings.

bobmarr, Ebay
31 October 2013
  • Summary: Great quality audio at a reasonable price. I read other reviews and was concerned about ease of use...turned out to be a non-issue. I actually found it to be pretty easy to set-up and use, my biggest trick was to read the manual! It is pretty light, but I use it in the field to augment GoPro's. So far, no problems.

Surprisingly good recorder

Peter G. Aitken, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: For such a small (and inexpensive) unit, the Roland does quite well. The controls are easy to use and the sound quality is more than adequate for the things you would use this for - voices, of course, helping with musical instrument practice, recording your son's recital, and the like. Don't expect great sound quality from such small mics that are spaced so close. Addition of a small speaker would be nice - at present you must listen thru headphones.
