User Review

  • Summary: This is a very good product that records phone calls through the wall- works with wireless home handsets too- set and plug into the wall and can record from any phone around the house.

Why this digital recorder is far better than others for recording telephone calls

D. P. Randolph "AriKona", Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: First, let me put to rest the argument whether or not a person can legally record telephone calls. In my state I can and I do. Check your laws before you start recording calls. Now, why this recorder is best suited for this application. To start with, I have tried several of the small, or should I say micro-recording devices.

My experience with this machine is 99% good.

Wayne D, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchase two of these units in July of 2013 after visiting the Sangean website, downloading the manual and reading it carefully. I also read every review that was available at the time at amazon.com. Despite having read some horror stories, I decided to purchase due to my previous experience with the Sangean name and the liberal exchange policy of Amazon.

WORKS FINE AS LONG AS SD CARD IS 2GB OR LESS

J. WILSON "texsys", Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: Though this unit functions as a digital desktop 2-microphone recorder, I use it for it's ability to record telephone calls automatically. Generally, it works okay as long as you keep a couple of things in mind. First, it takes about 4 to 5 seconds for recording to begin. I can live with that but I wish there was an immediate caching capability that I know is technically possible to incorporate these days.

Quirky, but useful, and reliable in its own quirky way.

Mitchell Regenbogen, Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Usually I return products that have issues that show poor design or implementation, but in this case I have grown to like my DAR-101. Make no mistake about it -- there are quirks: the alkaline/rechargeables switch is in a ridiculous location and is unreliable, the rewind function only works properly near the beginning of a recording, there is no one-button record feature, the recorder misses several seconds when it breaks up recordings as per optional settings, the...

Most complete and versital recorder I found

Jerry, Office Depot
27 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I was needing a recorder to make recordings of telephone conversations to make radio spots of clients that could not come in. This recorder does that and many other jobs very well.
  • Pros: value, Features, Easy to Use, Display Screen, Performance

It did everything it said it would

Dean Pennington "dwpenn in AZ", Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: The only thing novices at this need to know is this unit comes expecting analog phone lines when it comes to recording phone calls. If you have a digital phone system then hooking this into that system will not only NOT get you a recording, but it may fry the electronics in this recorder or even the digital phone system. It's a risk. If you don't know if your phone is analog or digital you must make an effort to find out.

ThePersonThatUsedIt, Walmart
23 November 2013
  • Summary: Installed batteries the day I received it (alkalines - make sure you set the battery switch) and the display lit right up when I turned it on. Set the clock and checked other settings, then shut it off. Turned it on two days later to record a meeting, and could hardly see the display. Tried plugging in to A/C in case batteries were bad, but no change. Tried adjusting brightness setting, but it didn't help.
