Summary: Smaller recorder, but does a great job with sound. I have been recording meetings and people who listen to it later have no problem understanding what was said. A little challenging to operate, but once you learn the programs, works very well.
Summary: I bought this recorder for professional lectures. The external 360 degree microphone works well. The unit is a bit complicated so test it out before you record something of importance. You need to index the recording if you want to listen to something midway through a recording otherwise you need to go all the way back to the beginning of the lecture to repeat what you want to hear.
Summary: I have no complaints on this whatsoever. The included mic is great. I use this to records board meetings and it does a great job at clearly recording all speakers at various distances. If features other than clarity and simple recordings are important to you I can't help with that, but for quality, clarity and ease of use this is 5 stars.
Summary: The DVT7000/00 Phillips Voice Tracer Digital Recorder with 360 Recording Voice Recorder is an outstanding product. I use it to record Focus Groups. I take the recording and use it to produce a transcript of the groups interactions. The product is easy to use. The manual is easy to understand and use. I highly recommend this product for use in any kind of recording project.
