It won't work with Windows 7 64 bit mode as there is no driver update

Harvey Rose, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: The recorder worked great tell I upgraded my operating system. Panasonic has not kept up support for the product in the way of drivers for 64 bit operating systems. Much like printers that become obsolete with new operating systems. Planned obsoletion to sell more product in a world where landfills are getting bigger and bigger. I bought it when I used Windows XP (32 bit) worked okay then.

OK as a paperweight

Embedded Developer, Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: Doesn't work with Window 7 or Windows 8; a waste of money. I would urge anyone who is considering buying a Panasonic product to do their homework first.

Don't lose the driver disk

A. Kelly, Amazon
2 February 2011
  • Summary: I've had this recorder for 3 years and use it for my job to record meetings, of which I then produce written summaries. It works OK, but I have a new laptop for my job and I want to install the driver software on the new machine. I haven't done that because I no longer have the original driver disc and Panasonic wants me to pay for a replacement (no free download).

PANASONIC RR-US450 IC

Mr. D. A. Lawton "Slim Hope", Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: This is the worst bit of Kit I have ever bought, it records really well and plays back on the device fine, which ever record quality you choose it remembers when you switch it on. (That's if you can call it switch on, as you push the hold button to switch it of, and un hold to switch it on.) so if you select HQ for record quality the next time you switch it on its set to HQ.

Could not offload saved files

RDK, Amazon
15 March 2008
  • Summary: I've always respected Panasonic quality and reliability -- but this was a shock. It was onsale at Fry's for 39 dollars -- 1 day sale. I returned it within hours. The main reason was neither XPSP2 or Vista wouuld recognize it as a device in My Computer. While it was detected and identified as an IC recorder in XP -- one could never access anything saved on it. Instructions took about 45 minutes of careful scrutiny just to configure settings necessary to record something.

Gets the job done

Steve Shiflett, Amazon
23 May 2007
  • Summary: Kind of cheaply constructed - the controls are a bit weird - and everytime I pick it up I wonder, "Is it broke yet?" I've been able to record conversations accurately and painlessly. The software is "crappy" - but it does the job if you struggle to learn it. My task was to record the conversation, download their format, convert it to mp3/wav for distribution. I used their software to get to the wav, and Audacity to get to the mp3.
