Acceptable quality for the price, but it could be better
29 January 2014
Summary: It does the job good. Downsides were, in my case: Power on/off buttion is not wisely designed (we have to slide a button on the side). Also, it got broken after some months of usage. Hopefully, I can stil use it by pressing the record or play button, which turn it on, but I can'T turn it off (it turns off automatically after several minutes.We can transfer audio via an analog cable to the computer, but it would be a lot better by transfering files via a USB cable or...
Summary: works like a charm .... have an idea ???// hit the rec button and you are in ...love it AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Summary: I bought this item because I wanted to be able to record notes to myself quickly without fumbling through different screens on my cellphone. I wanted a simple, inexpensive recorder that I could just pull out of my pocket, push a button and record my message. This fit the bill perfectly. Good size, good price, easy to use. Nice looking, too.
The 112 model works fine, but we needed USB, so we had to return these.

Summary: These 112 models, were inexpensive, because they do not have the USB connectivity we needed to connect to our transcription computers. So we are returning them for the 312 model, that does have USB. All of the Sony recorders are good for what we used them for (Dr. dictation and transcription by administrative staff). If you don't need USB connectivity (there is a headset jack), these models are fine.
Summary: I BOUGHT IT FOR MY DAUGHTER WHO LIKES IT VERY MUCH. SHE USES IT TO RECORD LECTURES AT COLLEGE. SHE HAS A COCHLEAR IMPLANT WHICH WORKS VERY WELL BUT DOES NOT CAPTURE ENOUGH OF THE SPEECH IN THE CLASSROOM. THE SONY RECORDS MORE OF THE SPEECH SOUNDS WHICH SHE LISTENS TO GET ALL OF THE LECTURE. SHE HAS HAD IT FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS NOW AND IT CONTINUES TO PROVIDE AN EXCELLENT BACKUP TO THE CLASSROOM LECTURES.
