Summary: I would not recommend this unit for three main reasons: 1. the sound quality is pretty bad with the internal mike and speaker. For taking notes an external mike and speaker is too bulky. 2. It does not work when powered by the USB port. You have to unplug it and run off two AAA cells (put in backwards) to play or record. 3. There is no USB driver either in firmware, on the CD, at Panasonic or built-into Windows 7.
Summary: I purchased this recorder as I have 2 previous panasonic versions recorders. Right off the bat you need to know its Window Vista not XP compliant. Unlike previous RR US360 recorders playback thru its little speaker is very tinny and distorts very quickly. Yes its thiner and the plus is that there is a pause in the record mode and more on board recording time. As for the covert placment in the pocket to record conversations the zoom setting I have not tried.
Summary: Pros - USB, many features, text to speech, software> Cons - no volume control, unintuitive menus. I like that this product comes with USB to allow you to move recordings from the device to your computer. It converts it to a WAV file which you can then email, post to the web, etc. Great for using with meetings and conference calls. Sound quality is really good - especially when you listen with headphones (not included).
Summary: No complaints at all. Origionally bought this to bring to parent teacher conferences, however, my wife used this at the toy store she manages for some EVP work due to suspicion of a new haunting by a recently deceased co worker. anyways, the thing picks up every pop, bazng, scratch, and voice. Excellent product, works great for meetings as well, the software is intuitive and flexable.
Summary: If all you want is an easy to use voice recorder that's inexpensive and doesn't have to sound good for music, this is it. I've only had this for a couple of days, so if it lasts for a year, it'll be a bargain. However, as compared to my tape recorder, it is vastly superior in every way.
Summary: The RR-US430 is easy to use out of the box, and the instructions are simple and clear. The software isn't the most intuitive I've used, but again, the instructions clarified any questions I had. I think the unit is best suited for conversations in a room where there are no echoes or background noises.
Summary: I AM SURE THAT THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT, HOWEVER,I TESTED THE RECORDING AND STILL CAN'T FIGURE OUT THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PLAYBACK WHAT i RECORDED. I WILL HAVE TO HAVE SOMEONE HELP ME FIGURE IT OUT.
Excerpt: Qualche anno fa mia cugina ha chiesto a suo padre un registratore vocale. Lui, lavorando per una ditta all'interno del Vaticano, ha comprato da quelle parti questo modello Panasonic. In teoria dovrebbe averlo pagato meno del prezzo di base con il quale si ...
Conclusion: Antes que nada, debo aclarar que yo lo uso como agenda... en vez de anotar voy grabando y luego borro lo que no me sirve, como quien tacha en su agenda. Este es mi 3er grabador para esto, todos comprados por mercado libre. Puedo decir que este es el mejor ya que es mas amigable con la pc y la ventaja de agregarle mp3s era impensado hace unos años.
Pros: Tiene 4 carpetas + 1 para mp3, Se pueden cargar mp3s directamente desde la PC, Puerto mini usb listo para mover archivos a la Pc y viceversa, Reproduce de corrido todos los archivos
Cons: no tiene funda, hay que apretar 3 botones para borrar un archivo, si modifico el nombre de un archivo, no lo reproduce, no tiene radio fm
