Summary: Gave this to a ninety-something friend so she could tell her family stories for her kids. It was easy for her to use, and produced good quality tapes that her daughter can easily convert to CDs for the siblings and grands. Liked that it uses full size, standard cassette tapes -- easy to duplicate or transfer to CD, easy to find additional tapes.

Summary: This recorder had a very low playback and there was a loud clicking sound which was much louder than the actual recording I was trying to hear. I cannot find a recorder that is even half as good as the discontinued Sony tcm-200dv. I returned it immediately.
Summary: I like it but it was not as nice as the one I had, that on my travels the top came off my hair spray can and sprayed in the whole bag, needless to say by the time I arriver that night the can was empty and cassette full of hair spray....don't get me wrong it is nice and works good but not as heavy or solid as my SONY.
Summary: Im happy with this little recorder it works great,i use it on my radio scanner and the vox works great. Its nice to have the vox capability,it has many useful applications. I would have not bought this item if it didnt have vox capability. Im just a little worried about how long it will last. The construction looks a little cheap. Ive worked as an electronics technician and ive seen units like this last a very short time.
