Works well but superceeded by Vado type devices and smartphones
31 May 2011
Summary: Bought this to get audio recommendations to put on a website, but a video camera works just as well and is about the same size (Vado, etc) plus it has Video! So this just sits around gathering dust now.
Summary: At the time of my order on Amazon.com, I definitely saw the condition of this item as like new, but when I received it, one of the plastic button was already fallen off and gone and the speaker sound quality was terrible with breaking noise. Never do a business with this seller!!! Never ever!!!!!!
Summary: The product came to me by U.S. Post about a week ago. I must say for $25 (one of the stores) it was used like new and it is still in excellent condition. Here's my opinionated details. Pros ----------------- Has pc connection. Good instruction manual easy to understand.

Summary: The RCA 5130-A voice recorder is relatively inexpensive and the use of MP3 files makes it useable with both Mac* (10.4 and 10.5) and Windows computers. On the computer it's a basic drag and drop file interface.
Summary: This recorder is great, it suits my needs perfectly. I use it to practice stories I tell, and make scratch recordings of music. The speaker is a little tinny, but it's so easy to plug in headphones, or drag them onto your computer, that it's really not an issue.
