Summary: I use the recorder with Dragon NS 11. Transfers audio into text well. After a little adjusting and learning how things work, background noise is less of a problem than I thought it would be. I use the four recording folders for different projects. I would like it if there was a way to select and continue recording on the same file(withing the folder) rather than starting a new file every time the record button is pressed.
Summary: Extremely disappointed. Nearly unusable because it is so complicated and the manual is not well written. Unable to delete messages even after reading the inadequate manual repeatedly. Wanted a simple "record", "playback" but got a voice recorder too complicated for everyday use. Also recorder came without a packing slip, so apparently unable to return item. A complete waste of money. Don't buy it!
Summary: I did some interviews during a Hollywood Press Junket and this little recorder was perfect. I uploaded the digital tapes, had them transcribed, and the articles written in a day. Great little recorder at a great price.
Summary: This is a very good voice recorder! I went to financial presentation and recorded it all. Than transferred the recording to my computer, than replayed the recording. The recording was very good. I am pleased with the product.
Summary: I wanted a simple to use voice recorder that allows me to quickly make a voice note of things to do, groceries to buy and other information that I would normally write on pieces of paper, eg addresses or phone numbers. The Philips voice tracer is a very easy to use device. I'm able to quickly record a message and listen to it via the crisp clear speaker.
