Summary: I'm a journalist, so I often hooked this up to my landline when I'd conduct interviews with sources. It worked well for about a year, but then completely stopped working when connected to the phone. (I know it's the recorder, not the cord, because I bought a new recorder and it works perfectly.) I still use this to record live interviews since it's smaller than my other one, but buyer beware if you're using to record phone conversations—I lost a few great interviews!
Summary: I purchased this digital voice recorder for my clients when taking dictation. This is one of the best voice quality recorders I have ever had. It is so clear that it is like I am with them again. The features and functions are great and simple. Great price too.
Summary: I've purchased and lost several of these. My last one was left out side (in the rain) for weeks and still worked for two years. The controls are much easier to use than the redesigned ones, which are terrible.
