Summary: It didn't work. I purchased this for a work training where great information would be shared so that I could hopefully create a few audio files so I could then share what I learned with me team. I tested the recorder once and it appeared to work then carefully repackaged it, traveled to my destination, and then found that the recorder wouldn't turn on. I purchased new batteries and still nothing. I was disappointed.
Summary: I use this recorder for class and it works wonders. The recordings are pretty clear and the device is small enough to put in my pen case. The batteries last for a long time and the usb at the bottom is convenient for when I want to share my recordings with others. This is a lot more convenient than trying to make space on my phone for lectures.
Summary: I have had sony in the past and paid almost hundred box , even though the quality of the audio was not clear as this device is. The only thing I would change is the battery system. However it only uses a single battery. I have been using it more than anyone who would clam and truly love it. Highly recommend !!
Summary: I read lots of reviews before purchasing this, and it is wonderful! I am a speech therapist, so I often need to record my client's speech and language. This is so easy to use, and the best part is that I can upload it onto my computer quickly, so I can begin transcribing the conversation. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Summary: An iPhone recording is better than what this delivers. It has heavy auto-gain which is too reactive. It will bring out all the background noise. Easy to use and the slide out USB connection is handy. My LCD began bleeding in the middle of the screen. No visible cracks. This tells me that the item is much too delicate.
Summary: This easy to use voice recorder is a great additiona to my tech array. It is actually part of my ghost hunting arsenal & has indeed caught EVP's. I take it with me on every trip, it is very clear.
Summary: I purchased this recorder only because I could not buy another new WS-300. I had purchased a WS-300 several years before, and loved it. After a lot of use recording meetings, classes and conference calls so I could transcribe them later, and not miss information by trying to take notes in the meeting, class or call, the WS-300 started skipping. I looked for a reason for skipping, the only thing I could find was a software update. Mine had the latest update.
