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: Easy to use, reasonable price, internal memory hols a lot. USB doesn't work with Mac/Apply computer...if you were wondering. Hoping the microSD card will work or do the job of transferring records to computer and sharing with family.
Intermittent massive distortion, otherwise great buy.

Summary: I just used this for the first time to record a lecture. I would have rated this 4 stars as I feel it is a great value except for one thing...when I played back my hour and a half long recording, there were many periods of massive distortion where the audio is absolutely unreadable.
JUst because WOW-MOM couldn't read the manual and put bad batteries in it doesn't mean this is a bad item

Summary: Blaming a product for one's own stupidity seems to rampant on Amazon reviews lately. This unit is perfect for the application for which I bought it - recording class lectures in school (the same as WOW-MOM's). The microphones pick up the teacher's voice perfectly.
Summary: I bought two of these to use for ghost hunting, as our Olympus recorders were getting a little long in the tooth. As far as features go, they have everything I need: they record in WAV format (increasingly hard to find, as everyone seems to be moving toward MP3), the microphones are omnidirectional...
Summary: Bought for my kid for her A & P college lectures, but could not get it to work. Told her to read the manual and use it. After reading the manual, she couldn't get it to work either. After a week of trying, I decided to take the batteries out.
I plug it in at the start of my shift and it records nicely on its very lowest setting (4 settings total) 9 ...

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: Received this product in an already opened package. The package had a bit of dirt in it and I had to clean a nasty layer of dirt off the digital recorders screen. After putting batteries into the digital recorder it wouldnt turn on. I then had to immediately send it back.
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.
