The Sony ICD-BX700 is good but their are things you might hate about it
22 August 2013
Excerpt: Ok so I bought this recorder, four of them in fact. I was so anixous to get it and once I finally did get them I used it straight. When I was done recording I realized that their was no way to take the audio from the recorder to your computer.
Pros: Recordings it takes are awesome but if your looking from a simple recorder I recommend.
Cons: The recordings from the recorder can not be transfered from your computer.
Excellent price and good quality, but instructions are confusing.

Summary: This is a good product as all of our Amazon purchases have been. However, the instructions for set up and use must have been written by someone for whom English is a second language. I finally have it programmed but some features such as date and time have been lost when the unit is shut off.
Summary: I bought this to use while practicing my fiddle and to take with me to Maine Fiddle Camp. It works well and is easy to use. My only problem with it is that I can't upload the music to my PC with a USB, but have to re-record the music onto the computer. All in all, not a bad recorder for under $40.
Summary: Though I haven't used this as maybe it was intended as a voice recorder, this little guy has done me well since I bought it. For me, its best use i to practice brass instruments into it and get instant feedback.
Summary: My girlfriend is working on her PhD and has to write many papers every week which involve a lot of research. She told me that she frequently wakes up early in the morning and her thoughts are clear and ideas seem to flow at that time.
Summary: Great price and easy to use, but this digital recorder has no USB port! What a royal pain! I was going crazy trying to figure out how to transfer files from the recorder to the PC. Now I know that you can use a mic to transfer, but what a SLOW way to do it.
Summary: This is a great recorder, the only thing I don't like is the hastle of getting the recording off. One you need a mini plug, then you have to connect it to you recorder though the headphone jack then connect the other end to your computer through the mic jack.
Summary: I bought this to replace my ICD-B100 that I dropped in water. The Good: Battery life is very much improved over previous models because of its sleep feature. Major plus. +++ The sound quality is also improved over previous.
Summary: This recorder is great. The sound quality is exceptional at the highest recording level. COntrols are easy to use and everyone loves it. My only regret was not getting the advanced model that has a USB connection so i could store recordings on my PC.
Summary: I needed a good recorder for business but it didn't need a PC connection. The 700 does the job. It has everything a more expensive one has. The only fault that I found for it was that it was on automatic record and somehow it started playing. Other than that I have no complaint.
