Summary: I find this device to be the perfect solution for recording conversations with utility companies. So many times I've called a utility company back (a cable company comes to mind) to get a status update on an issue, only to find that there is no record (written or otherwise) of the initial phone...
Pros: -- Crystal clear playback of recordings -- Easy install and setup -- Sturdy construction, solid materials -- Professional looking design -- Adequate menu options
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. Truly a great item

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...
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...
