Summary: This was money well spent. Would be great purchase for college students, reporters or anyone who needs to record conversations. Sound quality is crisp and clear, far better than any cassette or microcassettes that I used for years as a print reporter. Get the external microphone as well: Sony ECM-DS70P.
Summary: Some of my college classes covered LOTS of material in a SHORT amount of time. I would sit in the first 5 rows and use this at my desk so I can go over it later with my book to get more depth. The batteries lasted a long time and the quality of sound was fabulous. The only thing that affected the sound was if I shuffled lots of papers on my desk or if I had the recorder by a projector.
Summary: Used it everywhere. It is more sensitive than I thought. USB really practical. A little smaller in size would be better but I love almost everything about it. One problem I had once or twice is the file corruption which requires formatting and the lost of everything that has been recorded.
Awesome product. My favorite. One button press record.

Summary: Had one before and knew it was exactly what I wanted. Like the jump-back feature for language learning… a hard find on most new MP3 payers. I also like the removable battery so there is no delay while recharging a non-removable one. Just pop in another rechargeable battery and you’re off. I use it all day every day.
Very high quality recorder. Highly recommended!!!!!

Summary: Excellent product for the money. Recording quality is excellent ...as are the recording options. Display is small, but the operation of the buttons is relatively simply. Speaker is small and difficult to hear...but excellent with the headphones. Would highly recommend this for anyone who wants a compact, high quality recorder for everyday use.
Summary: I ordered this recorder so I could use it for class lectures for my college classes. I have had it for about a month now and I am very happy with it. I picked this recorder because it has a USB port which allows for super easy transfers to my computer. And I have been able to use it successfully with both Apple computers and non apple computers.
