Summary: Not really a problem with the product since it has not been opened. The problem was with the amount of time it took to get to me. I bought it for my mom because she said she needed something to record what her doctor told her when she visited him. She had a hearing problem and needed reminding about important things.
Summary: We use these at our law firm and we got one of the recorders out of the package and the reverse button did not work from the start. We could not return it because we bought them in bulk in January 2013 and now the warranty is no good even though it was never out of the package. Do not waste your money.
Summary: It is almost impossible to buy a non-digital recorder at retail stores. I use my recorder constantly and I am not ready to go digital so I buy this one constantly as it is one of the few non-digital recorders still available. From day one there is a loud buzz when re-played. They last about 6 weeks and suddenly stop working. I have resigned myself that this is the norm for this product and buy it knowing that I will need another one in a short time.
