Great for EVP Recording

L. Hull, Amazon
19 November 2008
  • Summary: This is the best recorder I have for recording EVP - not good for recording voices in large, echo-ey places, but is very easy to work with and I have had NO problems with it and it has been used and abused in all types of weather..

Does What It's Supposed to

C. Whitmore, Amazon
18 October 2008
  • Summary: I use this to record lectures. It records. It plays it back. The sound isn't the greatest when listening to what was said, but if you put on headphones, that helps A LOT. If you want something small and digital that records with no bells and whistles, this is it.

Buggy

M. Ford, Amazon
18 October 2008
  • Summary: I purchased one of these and really liked it at first. It has a good design and the right features at a good price. Unfortunately it went to market untested. After you record 10 or so messages the middle of some messages drops out.

There is an off switch

Austin, Amazon
18 October 2008
  • Summary: To all those saying that there is not an off switch, there is. The hold button on the side acts as the power button. When there is no recording going on the and hold button is activated, the device will turn off itself and everything will be saved.

Not the best

C. Foss, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: For 1), there is NO on/off button, just a Hold switch that locks all the buttons but display ALWAYS stays on. 2), there is no shirt clip to keep it from falling out of your pocket or clip it to your pants pocket.

Some comments on lack of an on/off. switch

mvyjim, Amazon
9 June 2008
  • Summary: I notice there are several reviews complaining about the lack of an separate on/off switch on the Sony B100. (The Hold button does not serve as an on/off switch.) However, the B100 does not need an on/off switch any more than does a digital watch. My watch is a cheap Timex digital.

A Huge Hassle, Basically

M. McCowan, Amazon
12 May 2008
  • Summary: I don't usually give bad reviews, but this product really deserves one. I am a reporter for a local magazine and needed a voice recorder to conduct interviews. I purchased this recorder and realized after reading and re-reading the instructions that it definitely does not have an On/Off switch.

Works, but disappointed

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 April 2008
  • Summary: Received in good condition for a refurb. Unit itself was much smaller than I thought. Records and plays good, but FF and REW buttons are difficult to use. It is ALMOST a really good product.

What was Sony thinking?

Betazoid, Amazon
12 April 2008
  • Summary: I have to wonder... I mean, who creates an electronic device these days that just stays ON. *All the time*. :-O It's just nutty... Don't buy this recorder -- big waste of money.
