Summary: This recorder is compact, easily portable, and records sound well. Some digital recorders I've used result in tinny voices without much depth, but the Sony is fairly true to natural sound. The price is also reasonable for the quality.
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.
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.
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.
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.
