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. The High Quality feature seriously reduces the record time but the quality is invaluable when using during meeting situations when you have to catch many voices.
Summary: I had one for 4 years and then it was stolen from me. I looked everywhere and could not find one till I went to ebay. This little unit is awesome! It has high quality mic so you can easily tape a conversation with no one knowing. It also can withstand heat from inside a car which will destroy most digital recorders because the housing in this unit is thicker.
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: I like the size of the recorder, and it was fairly easy to understand the instructions. I needed something that I could record books for my grandchildren, and make disks on my computer. It was exactly what I was looking for.
Summary: Works 3/4 of the time. Something not working 1/4 of the time isn't good; it records, but it isn't able to convert the file into electronic format (like mp3 or wav). Not much good for anything except for playback.
