Summary: This is really a handy device that I use regularly. It is small and light weight and fits in my pocket. I got it at a great price, knowing that the camera wouldn't work without the software. I didn't need the camera anyway. I would definately recommend this recorder. Most recently, I used it to record my doctor's instructions before surgery.
Summary: the usb cord wasn't recognized by any computer, so nothing was able to be uploaded off this contraption. i didn't find this out until over a year into using this; i move slowly sometimes. customer service recommended i get a new cord. duh! they would not replace it, however.

Summary: Small and Light weight for job site use . We use it in an accident kit , to record statements and take pictures , while it's fresh in peoples memory . Both of which can be down loaded on a computer , then saved on a disc . This isn't designed for studio recordings and archival photos , just a useful item to have around the home or in the cars glove box .
Summary: I've owned many digital voice recorders, and settled on this model a few years ago. It provides the digital voice, and also a camera. The controls are easy to remember. When I have an idea floating in my head and can't sleep, I don't even turn on the light. The controls are easy to recall and it's easy to tell whether I'm holding the recorder upside down, forwards or backwards.
Summary: To order this from the seller was a mistake. The product was not as advertised (quite inferior). My e-mail to the seller after receiving the product was never acknowledged nor has a refund been forthcoming (I returned the product). This is always a danger but is my first bad experience. This is an entirely negative review.
Summary: i gave this as a holiday gift for my three nephews ages 7, 8 and 10. all three loved it and no one had trouble operating it quickly without reading instructions. they have enjoyed recording their own voices and others... even singing songs and playing it back. i remembered the days of playing with my parents tape recorder... and with this machine... it's just like that... only better. plus... i can borrow it if i need it for work!
Summary: Bought recorder to replace sony digital that was lost. The sony had six hours of talk time. This recorder has less than two hours in lp. I wasn't paying attention when I bought this. I have not been able to get the software for the camera to work after several attempts. You cannot use the camera without it. Purchasing this recorder was a mistake.
