Records Well, Conserves Battery Power

ChocolateMudslide, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: It records very well and picks up sounds from a good distance. You know how sometimes batteries get their power drained while keeping it in a device that uses a soft power switch. So far the battery seems to be holding strong while the unit is off. This is great!

I have owned nine Sony recorders but switched to Philips ...

s. lam, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned nine Sony recorders but switched to Philips due to the noise created when manufactured that appears when you play back. I tried the DVT1400 and it was a disaster for me (senior citizen, and not all that savvy). The deal breaker was that it took 8 seconds from the time I started speaking for the recorder to record. I am used to the 1 second or less on SONYs.

Works exactly as mentioned

MinnieWinnie, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: So far this voice recorder works just like mentioned... with self explanatory directions... ( cause what comes in package... don't really explain how to use this ).... I guess you just have to go on it's website for complete manual. It didn't take me long how to set it up myself.... it is a very easy to use and economical recorder... fits easily in pockets & can put on lock from accidently pressing any buttons... decent recording time...

Works extremely well with Dragon NaturallySpeaking

Kate McMurry "Avid reader", Amazon
25 October 2013
  • Summary: I got this recorder for one purpose only, because it is at the top of the list of compatible recorders for Dragon NaturallySpeaking. It works extremely well for that purpose. Besides that, I like these features in general: --It is small and light, using two AAA batteries. --The unit comes with a USB cable and batteries, which are (rationally enough) not pre-installed in the device (to avoid potential damage from battery-acid leakage).

Disappointed

Miriam K, Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: The voice playback is distinctly tinny and higher pitched than my voice. I tried it with and without ClearVoice. With ClearVoice there seemed to be an echo. Without was better in that regard. I tried both HQ and SHQ. There was not much difference. This had all been done in Dictation Mode. I switched to Speech to Text. It still made no difference.

Very Disappointed!!!!!

Joseph Prasuhn, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I just got this recorder on May 6th it worked great at first and just recently it quit working altogether i havent even had it for two months. It wont let me turn it on or even transfer what is on there to the computer. I have done everything to get it to work again but it wont, I have lost over 25 lectures on here because of its malfunction. So if i were you i would save your money and get a different product.

Great voice/audio recorder!

Stefan "Stefan", Amazon
16 April 2013
  • Summary: This is a wonderful voice recorder for anyone who wants to record conversations (interviews, personal thoughts, etc.). It's easy to use, which is fortunate because the instructions that are included aren't very helpful. The sound quality is great. You can manually start recording, which is what most people will probably use, but you can also set the unit to start recording automatically, which could be handy in certain situations.

Very Good Quality with Nice Features

Valerie J. Saturen, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: As a freelance writer, having a reliable digital recorder is indispensable. Previously, I used a cheap RCA digital recorder (RCA VR5220), and I have found that this Philips recorder is a vast improvement over my old device. Not only does it provide generally crisp, clear sound quality, but it also comes with a variety of useful settings and features that allow you to customize it for different uses.
