Summary: It was bought in time to record the memorial at the funeral home and the comments at my mother's funeral Mass at the church and cemetery. Easy to download to hard drives in My Audio folders.
Pros: One of the best computer devices that I have ever used for recording my thoughts, phone messages to download to my PCs, and other activities, even conversations with doctors, chiropracters, and other events, like Christmas caroling and the happy sounds of children playing with their grandparents ...
Cons: really nothing bad to say, except the text on the buttons is wearing out.
Summary: Pros: - very tiny - light, less than a pack of gum, unobtrusive - works well with external mike, purchased separtely - good life on batteries Cons: - tiny little buttons - internal mike picks up background noise easily - probably want to carry in a hard case, like a small eye glasses case
Summary: This recorder does a good job of picking up local voices. Don't put it in your pants pocket and walk around because about all you'll hear are swishing sounds. It seems to work well in transferring the files to a computer as it plugs into a USB port and looks like another portable drive.
Summary: I bought this small recorder for a class I was taking over a two day period and it out performed what I thought it would do. The recording was crystal clear and picked up the lecturer perfectly. I would break and then start again anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 1/2 hours later.
Summary: This product is the best and most amazing thing for someone in school. I tape the session, transfer over to the laptop, and then review the notes prior to class. I can tape from the back of the room and the quality is the same.
Summary: Only weakness I see is the speaker. It's just too weak needing more volumne range. Other than that this is an awesome digital recorder, small, light weight great battery life, easy to down load files etc. I'd buy it again but to get a 5 star rating they need to upgrade the speaker.
Summary: The built-in uSb connection saves time no fumbling with cables. windows XP sees the recorder as another drive with files very easy to transfer recordings. Choice of quality Levels is great - lower quality for lengthy lectures, Higher quality for language courses. Keeping track of files is also easy.
Summary: I bought this recorder to use as a audio journal and to jot down ideas for future writing projects. The folder function makes it easy to divide up these ideas and retrieve them. I am pleased with the sound quality as I don't expect it to be recording studio quality. It does the job for me.
Summary: NewEgg shipping is the best. Battery seems to last for about 12 hours of recording. When the battery indicator says it is time to change the battery it means to change the battery (Go figure! Keep spares handy they are cheap.). A 4 hour lecture yields a file of approximately 50mb in size.
Pros: This recorder is very reliable and does an excellent job recording lectures and conversations. The USB connector makes file transfer and sharing a snap. Size of the device is great for carrrying in a shirt pocket. File management on the device is easy and intuitive.
Cons: Some may think the buttons and screen are small but given the size and weight of the device and the size of my hands I think after a bit of getting used to it they are great.
