Summary: This recorder does its job well, but be careful with it. The battery cover breaks easily if this thing is dropped or knocked around. If it were more sturdy (especially the battery cover / latch), I would give it five stars. (A great broken recorder is still broken.)
Summary: Immediately started having problems with recorder. It has eaten tapes, door either won't open or pops off completely. Sound isn't any better than the $35 recorder I bought for backup. Definitely not worth the money. Sound isn't any better than cheaper models. So disappointed.
Summary: I bought two recorders in December 2012. I used one until it dropped on the floor and the battery door broke (my fault). When I went to use the second one, I discovered that the rewind button doesn't work! $149 recorder??? Really??? It is now April 2013, and I am beyond the return date.
Summary: This hand held dictaphone used to be my favorite for its ultra smooth operation and ease of button use. The current version. Is fabulous, too. Compared to the other I used recently (Sony) which is good, this is excellent. It is light and hand friendly for a woman's hand.
Summary: I don't know what some of you are talking about, but this is an AMAZING recorder for it's price. This is the read deal. I have used many recorders and this one, surprisingly, works best with the application that I use it for. It has a very high quality audio playback. Don't be fooled by its price.
Summary: Recorder has functioned very well under heavy daily use. I like the battery level indicator. Great feature. No more running into problems as battery runs down. Very sensitive microphone as well.
