Excellent reliable recording unit with information that is not corruptable.

  • Summary: The unit was more than 25 years old but looked and operated like new. These old microcassette recorders are very reliable and rarely if ever will lose recorded data unlike some digital units where the data can become "corrupted" or unrecoverable. I had a very pleasant purchase experience.

RN-405 Pricing

  • Summary: Mine just broke after several years of service. This product was purchased for about $30 at a Best Buy. The price of $249 is rediculous. Just returned from Radio Shack, where I bought one (RCA micro cassette recorder) for $35.

  • Summary: The recorder has a constant buzz in the background and stops intermittently. It came without a cord to use without batteries. Not a good purchase.

  • Summary: I've gotten a good bit of use out of this microcassette recorder. However, by no means is it something special, though I do really like the battery recharger/AC adapter. Of all of the tape recorders I've used, this is EXACTLY the same recording quality as the others. I would have given this 4 stars but then I thought about how much I paid for it and realized that it was way overpriced...of course one could argue that they all are...and I'd agree.

Looks Cheap,But.....

  • Summary: Just received the RN-505 in four days from Amazon (super service).The Micro Cassette Recorder is well built and the NiCad batteries and AC adaptor are nice accessories. The unit,for its size, is very comfortable in the palm of my hand. Easy to reach controls,but hard to read since ALL is painted silver,including the letters. And this is were I would rate it a three(3). The plastic casing, all painted in silver, gives this excellent recorder a CHEAP look.

Excellent performance, confusing controls and instructions

  • Summary: This recorder is very small and highly sensitive. Not having experience with the newer recorders this was a surprise. The picture does not do it justice for its petite size. It measures 7/8" wide, 2-5/8" wide (including button tops) and 4-5/8" tall. This would be an easy fit for a front shirt pocket with plenty of room for extra pens. The exterior of this recorder is plastic, not metal as the silver color might suggest.
