Summary: I bought this recorded because I have poor memory. I record wife's grocery list and then play in the store to be sure I have exactly what she wants. I use the recorder to record sermons, songs and radio commercials I cannot write. I have tremors and can hardly write anything. I highly recommend this item.
Summary: I did an interview for my graduate class in someone's home with their washing machine and drying running in the background. I turned the noise eliminating feature on and the conversation was crisply recorded.
Quite good, not amazed with interface and ability to change settings (rec speed, sensitivity)

Summary: Previously I have been using a Zoom H1 with amazing result but wanted something smaller for voice only. In comparison, you should consider -Interface. Not very intuitive, menu with different levels that are not very handy (especially when changing REC Mode or Mic Sensitivity). Big display but not backlighted (it would be a very good addition with the ability to turn it off).
Summary: I use a voice recorder probably about 20-30 times a day. I own an internet business and when I see that something needs to be ordered or corrected when I get back in front of a computer I take out my recorder and make a note. When back in front of the computer and I'm ready to order supplies, inventory or make an adjustment to the site, I simply play back the messages one at a time and enter them in.
Summary: Microphone picks up voices really well during interviews even in noisy outdoor environments. I spent a little time reading the manual as another reviewer suggested and found it worthwhile as the recorder was easy to use afterward. I knocked off one star because the included Sound Organizer software is so-so and does not really support a Sony brand foot-pedal transcriber as well as it should.
Summary: I needed to something to record my conversation with my instructor, and with the control tower as well. Therefore, I'd searched everywhere for the advice, and found this one. - It has very long battery life, it's been already 6 months, and I didn't have to change its battery. - It records up to hours, so I couldn't get to see how long.....
