Summary: I am sure once I get used to using this I will love it. the clarity is unmatched. I am having trouble getting used to the controls. As with my older Phillips recorder, this doen't have useful instructions. When will electronics makers realize not every customer is a geek.
Works extremely well with Dragon NaturallySpeaking

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).
Summary: This recorder has so far lived up to my expectations. As a paranormal investigator it is key to have equipment that works well and works easily so you aren't wasting time messing with it. This recorder was easy to set up initially and the buttons aren't complicated to figure out either. Transferring the sound files to the computer is a snap too, and it plays well with Audacity. All in all this one is a great recorder for the price.
