Summary: I love this little recorder. This is the third one I've searched for and purchased over the last few years. There are others, newer models, but THIS is the one that I KNOW works terrific! 17 hours of recording time and a built-in microphone that catches conversations from 25 ft.
Summary: Worked well for recording lectures in college. I used along with the noise canceling microphone as it was a large lecture. Continue to use it today in work, and it's still going. I appreciated the direct connection USB, too.
Summary: I purchased this for large group meetings hoping that it would work for me to take minutes. It works great. I use for large meeting with up to 50 people and just place up front and it picks up voices from all the way in the back. Great product.
