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.
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. I didn't need bells and whistles, so I gave it a 4 out of 5 to give some space for others who need more from a recorder. The price is right, so it's hard to complain.
Summary: This Voice Recorder is exzctly what I wanted and needed. I use it for shopping memory checks and Writing ideas. I also like to plan job steps and this is just the tool I needed. It's the perfect recorder for voice audio. I don't think it would be very good for music. They have cd's and radios for that. I might also add that it'seasy to operate.
