Summary: Just using the batteries = recording time is very limited, imo. Maby a few hours, maby less. If you can plug it into a usb port for power, either through a computer or a converter attached to a wall outlet, this thing is flawless.

Summary: died soon after purchasing. it was hard to use anyway. save your money and get a micro SDHC card (16GB or 32GB) for your Android phone and be much more happy. even the microphone in most Android phones is more sensitive than in this piece of junk.
Summary: Was smaller than expected [good thing] had no problem with different mics. Has more that enough recording time and I love the USB computer connection wuth which to download my audio files. If you can still get one - go for it.
Summary: The Coby CXR190-4G is an excellent product. I have used it for both school and hobby purposes and the playback quality is astounding. This is my third voice recorder and it really impressed me, I certainly recommend it.
Summary: Pretty good voice recorder, with the features I wanted, including MP3 and SD card compatibility. The functions could have been more intuitive but this is typical of some Coby products. Works on batteries so expect to replace them regularly.
