Summary: Love this little recorder, but, like many others, I lost the software CD. After learning on the web that the software download was no longer available, I started scouring for some place to find it. Murphy then took over and I went with the option that was right in front of me!
Summary: I had one just like it that just got worn out. I am very busy at work and need 1.5 hours of brain time at the tip of my fingers. I am a manager and constantly give direction, delegate, and follow up on my associates.
Summary: I like this voice recorder. I just wanted something for my purse, so I could take a voice memo for myself, or record nature sounds like birds. It's a nice little recorder for that. But it keeps getting turned on by things in my purse, which runs the batteries down.
