Summary: This is the second RCA Rp5022 recorder I have owned, the first had a manual button to lock it but it broke very quickly. Other than learning to use the lock feature as a command option rather than through a manual button I love this recorder.
Summary: while the product was perfect, it is a bit complicated to use...i recommend going through the instructions step by step several times...there are too many steps to do just one aspect of using it!
Summary: RCA made poor voice recorders. I bought two and went useless (full and no room to record even no files in machine) in couple months. When I contacted RCA "support" department, I got unprofessional and useless reponse.
nice good deal!!can play in winamp or windows voc wav wahtever

Summary: picked my voice up at 6 feet normal voice level. playback totally audible I BOUGHT 2 :)
Pros: To the one that said corrupt playback after so MANY HOURS OF PLAY WAS THAT WHAT YOU SAID??? READ THE MANUAL!!!! Your batteries are probably dying! geezzzz. OK I am using version 3.27 the application software is fine NO problems in vista at all!! sounds great through vista 32 or 64 and winamp as w...
Cons: no software as i send i had to get it online and pdf manaul is LOCKUP letters meaning small mirco letters hard to read . use RCA's PDF on the site jsut copy save that to whatever you want folder, desktop, whatever!
Cons: If you record over an hour as someone else say it corrupts the whole file. Also there is some hidden file I cant see that is taking up 70% of the space so I am left with 1 hour of HQ quality recording.
Summary: The "Digital Voice Manager" will convert the .voc files to .wav files so that they can be played by "Windows Media Player" or something similar. After the digital voice manager is installed, left click on something like "A0000001.VOC" to play it.
Pros: Easy to start recording after inserting two batteries, and reading the instructions. I had it recording within five minutes. Sensitive microphone, and the playback of some music even sounded good to me -guitar and harmonica music. Includes a USB cable to connect to computer. A "Digital Voice Mana...
Cons: It took some trial and error intuition to get the included software to work. My Windows XP would not recognize the sound bite files .voc by dragging and dropping, and I had to use the RCA "Digital Voice Manager" program.
Summary: I bought this after getting tired of some other DVRs being so difficult to reconfigure after battery changes. Why do they make recorders that can't remember the date and time of day for even 15 secs. Haven't they heard of flash memory? Heck, they are using it to record our voices.
Summary: Great audio with standard mic, but if you use an external mic.. AMAZING quality. I use a lapel mic to record my audio while I record my video movies. I then use Vegas to overlay the audio and wind up with dang near professional audio quality on my movies.
