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..
Summary: The recorder arrived very promptly, but it is engineered to keep running as long as the batteries are left within it. In other words, it is necessary to remove them every time I anticipate a long lapse between uses. This problem should be dealt with in designing the next version of this product.
Summary: The sound quality isn't the greatest, and you cant connect it to the computer to transfer the files. as a result u have to delete the files every week to make up room. Buts its cheap and it has different files to use for different class.
Summary: The product is advertised with "408 recording hours". After opening the package and using it I found fine print that states "battery life 16 hours for recording and 10 hours for playback". This requires 26 battery changes. Time for a refund.
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.
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.
