Summary: I hand out the VN 120 to my sight reading students during tests. It is very economical and durable. They will drop them ocassionally. With proper positioning the recording quality if quite good. It gives me an accurate reading of all notes and pitches. At $29 it is a great buy. TSherwood
Summary: I bought one of these to take notes in place of my miserable handwriting or paying for copying. It seems to work fine - the sound is clear enough to hear and transcribe, and it's small and handy.
