Summary: I barely use it since I bought it. I bought to record piano lessons for my son. It looks like it only works if the batteries are brand new, and it dies out quickly. If you turn the column high, the voice got distorted. I will never spend money on a device like this. And again I would like to know its origin before my next purchase, which is usually a well-kept secret on Amazon.
Summary: This little guy is SMALL, especially if you remove the detachable stereo mic on the top (has a perfectly fine mono one built in). I used it to record lectures at school and meetings at work and it has worked just fine for both. The sound quality FAR exceeds anything you need for simple voice recording, but I would not recommend it for the serious recording of music or other dynamic sounds (bought an olympus LS-11 for that).
Summary: I love this recorder. It is complicated to work, but I don't disapprove. Anybody who is not technologically savvy would have difficulty using this recorder to its full potential. I really like the numerous options it has for recording. My only issue is that I cannot seem to find the right setting out of all the options for each of my classes since they are all varied in size and location.
Summary: The purpose to buy this was for my son's violin lesson. He is 11 year old and tends to forget teacher's important points. A little bit pricey but it worth your money. I have been used it for about two months now and I love it. The record sound quality is pretty good. I can easy to hear what the teacher said in 10 feet distance while my son's violin playing is crispy clear at about 5 feet away. It can't be used for serious musician though. The recorder is easy to use.
Summary: The recorder is very easy to operate. Stores all your recordings and organized it. It has lots of space for numerous documents. Its great for my job and has saved me from unwarranted complaints.
Summary: Bought this for wife to record college lectures. Excellent quality of recordings (thanks to stereo mic's), easy to figure out most of the bells/whistles, and download recordings to her laptop is automatic, via the included software. Like any other USB storage device, you could also use it to store data files or music from any computer with a USB slot. I recommend this recorder.
Summary: First of all, I should note this is a great product especially for those with a visual impairment. My spouse has used this daily for several years. Pro's - Five file folders for quick access to the most frequently used data sources. Easy navigation with both tactile and lcd screen - plus...and this is a biggie, all functions have speech mode making it perfect for low vision or blind users. Great sound quality for clear recording.
