Good unit, but has reliability problem

E. Mirro Jr., Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: I've owned at least 4 of these over the last 5-6 years. This is an old, obsolete design, but it works fine for non-critical everyday use. 1. The listed price of $89.99 is ridiculous. I've never seen them priced over $40, except here. 2. For me, these units last about 1-2 years of heavy use. The Hold and Erase switches fail, and there is no way to retrieve the messages stored in memory at that point. 3.

  • Summary: I ordered this recorder for my blind daughter - who had worn out her previous ICD-B500 recorder. The service was prompt, and the recorder was in excellent condition when received. I was positively impressed with this service.

Great little unit

D. DuBois "daN", Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: I have now had this unit for over 5 years and it is very easy to use. I have some disabilities, so I often must use this as my memory at important appointments. If it was hard to use, I would be the first one to say so. It always produces clear, distinct, and easy-to-hear and understand recordings of people talking in all kinds of venues. The best thing that I can say is simply that it works "...as advertised".

  • Summary: I bought this recorder at Australia on 2008. Used it to record lectures and ideas. Took it to Asia for work. Recorded lot and lot of assessments and interviews with it. Took it to US, sitting idle for quite some time until my wife use it to record presentations and lectures. Overall I'm satisfied with it Pros: Lightweight Battery saver Clear voice Cons: Unintuitive folder and bad user manual (The second worst so far) Somewhat too sensitive mic, irrelevant noise might be...
