Summary: Bad upgrade from the older model. It goes to sleep and it takes way to long to wake-up. REDICULOUSLY STUPID and useless feature. Takes 12 seconds to wake it up. 12 seconds-really?. Aside from that it works fine. MFG-get a clue. Leave the sleep feature OFF. Let us control the hold, on/off.
Absolute piece of junk. No USB/Computer/Digital connection and no battery life.

Summary: This thing eats batteries like it has a giant motor in it. Good, Duracell alkalines. You will repeatedly run out of battery power in the middle of recordings. How they managed this, I don't know. Why this product was ever released to production, I don't understand. Somebody at Sony should be fired.
Summary: There is no usb to connect or transfer your recorded files to the computer for storage or further editing. This was my blow out. NOT FOR ME and i don't have any one i can recommend this to because all those i know need the usb or a way to move the files to their Computers.
Summary: This is a really good voice recorder and its useful and fun. Ok so.. last Friday my son got hold of my voice recorder. Brought it in the bathroom and he recorded himself taking a poo and it was loud and then he dropped it in the poop. So gross! So.. I'm gonna get. A new one. Ok yay
