Summary: This recorder is just about useless for why I bought it. Recording statements from witnesses. The controls feel cheap and as though they can be easily damaged. The sound quality is terrible. I used it exactly once, and never thereafter. It now sits in a draw. If you want it to just record random thoughts or reminders, you might want to consider it but for that purpose it's too large and too much money. Suggest you keep looking.
Summary: The sound quality is so heinous you can barely hear what you recorded. It's literally unintelligible. Waste of time and money. The old Sony micro cassette recorders worked great, but this is just garbage.
Summary: I have purchased several of these to go with our dictation equipment. They are not as durable as other brands but they are also not as expensive. It is hard to find these nowadays since everyone has moved on to digital recorders.
