Summary: I have used this little gem for more than a year to record notes and identification data while on surveillace details whether in daylight or nighttime darkness. The few controls are easy to use. The replay sound, when I am writing reports. is as clear as the sound that entered the recorder. I don't think music would be very good. Great display. Battery life is far better than I expected.. I recommend this recorder to anyone wishing to record voice data.
Summary: Let me start by saying that if you want computer connectivity, look somewhere else. However, if you want something that will take a quick voice memo without a lot of button fiddling, then easily play it back, this is almost perfect. I bought a $150 MemoQ pen recorder, and it works very well. But now that I have the Memorex, I hardly ever use it.
Summary: I did not buy this here, and mine claims 288 hours of use (but reading reviews I guess I have to take out batteries?) In any event, I read the little instruction book but it is simply not understandable. I have no clue how to use this. I need one of these, but I also need instructions with use information. This is going back.
Summary: Buyer beware. If it's cheap, it's cheap. First let me say that I did not purchase this through Amazon as I had an immediate need and could not wait. It was the only unit I could obtain locally. Battery life zero. You cannot fast forward...nothing like listening to an all day meeting all over again just to pick up a few key points...If you accidently stop it rather than pause it, you go back to the beginning! No thought went into this unit.
