Summary: This is a wonderful product. I had used a microcassette transcriber for my old tape recorder, and when I switched to digital, it was taking me much longer to transcribe tapes. This is even faster than my microcassette transcriber was. It has cut my workload by about 60%. I love it!
Summary: I've only transcribed on it for a few days, hardly enough time to give a full recommendation, but so far it is working just fine. The voice quality is pretty good. I can't really compare this to other systems, as I've been transcribing off microcassettes for the past several years.
Summary: I used this about 4 years ago for my dissertation. I conducted used a qualitative design for my research. I recorded and transcribed some interviews. This made the process so much easier. If you can get one, then you should. If not you have to sit there and hit rewind and play over and over.
