Perfect for recording lectures

Honor444, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: This little device was perfect for college classes. It recorded lectures so I could re-listen at my own convenience. I also used it for interviews for class assignments. It is so small and easy to use. Now I take it with me whenever I travel. It was an excellent investment.

Perfect

Adam Blough, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: The best recorder i have ever owned. Captures crystal clear sound from a distance as well as up close and can record through material so in pocket recording at a meeting or class is perfect and it cant be any easier to use! A+++

Doesn't Record in mp3 format

Maureen Nevin "Radio Gal", Amazon
23 June 2008
  • Summary: I currently own this model, which I bought for a much lower price at Radio Shack. But I want to start doing Podcasts and this unit does not record in the mp3 format. If you try to convert the saved file using audacity, the program asks you to send the file as raw data.

Time Tells

Randall S., Newegg
17 January 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the same with higher memory after a year. Go for the memory right away.
  • Pros: Extremely convient, high-quality recorder with great playback. The microphones are very sensitive and good for lecture pick up. However, a small accessory mike will give direction and awesome quality reproduction.
  • Cons: single file format and low memory for using it as a music machine and a portable recorder.

Excellent product

Ashlesh M., Newegg
18 January 2007
  • Summary: For the price, it is an awesome product. As long as you dont rough it around, should last you long. Mine is 3 months old and I love it. The cons are really very minor; I would recommmnd this product to anyone.
  • Pros: -very powerful stereo microphone -crystal clearvoice recording -menu is easy -price
  • Cons: -very powerful microphone- picks up sounds from distant backgrounds; may be a plus for some -built-in speaker is very weak - plastic casing looks and feels cheap. I have kept mine in a soft velvet bag, and do not throw it around. So, it is still in good condition.

Good Recorder

Robert S., Newegg
13 October 2006
  • Summary: Fortunately, when recording for quality with a decent external mike (or from a wired audio source), the Automatic Gain Control reduces the hiss to unnoticable while it levels the recording volume. With a good external mike, the recorder misses _nothing_.
  • Pros: Some features are: 256 MB (512 and 1 G are available); built-in stereo mikes; 3 levels of quality (It records in .wma only- no wave recording capability) so I use the best setting, which runs just over 17 hours mono, 8.5 stereo); functions that help when transcribing recordings (like slow and fas...
  • Cons: Some negatives are: the tiny size, which means terrible mike isolation from the case (it picks up wind-noise and every touch or rub); the need to sometimes operate it by fingernail (WHY do they design for a child's fingers when the market is office- workers?); and a recording hisssss level that l...
