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: 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.
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.
