Summary: All the reviews I read were correct - ease of operation, barely had to read the manual to get going. I was very happy with this gadget except for one problem - In my bag or briefcase, it constantly goes on accidently with any movement (looking through the bag for something, pushing the bag aside,...
This is as good as the Sony, one modest difference

Summary: If you are considering the Sony (I can't remember the #) there is not much difference other than the price (the Sony is almost double). I've also never used the extra 30 minutes. Beyond that, the Sony does have the ability to download files via a cable.
Although this is nice and compact, the sound is horrible

Summary: I sell this product where I work, and when I first saw this recorder, I thought it looked sooo cool. It was soo small and fit in the palm of my hand. I was in for a surprise when i tried it out. The sound was horrible. I couldn't even understand a word I was saying.
Summary: A great item but it quit playing back after about 9 months of use. You could get bits of the messages by holding the mode button down momentarily. The gold paint wears off carrying it in your pocket.
Summary: I didn't have the same luck as the reviewer whose recorder survived the washing machine (and dryer) - mine is dead. However, I did find the thing very handy while I had it. The sound quality is great, and it is small enough to carry in a pocket.
Summary: This is a great tool for recording important info on the run. As a Builder I have gotten very use to the convenience of recording important notes and thoughts as I go for playback and placing them in my day planner for latter retrevial and action!
Summary: Palm size voice recorders back in 1986-7 were small, squarish, and sounded as if a new mini-phonograph disk was being etched for each 30 second-recorded segment. A scratched note that you had to record over each time because there was no memory.
Summary: I had used one of those clunky tape voice recorders but never seemed to have it available when I needed it because it was too big to carry everywhere. Well, this one is a perfect size and weight.
Summary: What can I say. I bought this recorder when it was just out. I use it every day... prts of my life are recorded on it (notes etc..). One day I was taking clothes out of the dry and my heart stopped. There on the floor was the battery cover. Next I found the battery and next the recorder.
