Summary: I used this continuously for the first 2 years, but with the increased use of multi-purpose cell phones I have been using the phone for all the functions that this provided. At this point it is quite out dated.
Summary: Sony does not provide drivers to interface this device to Windows 7 and Vista 64 bit versions. Once I got rid of my old XP based computer I have no way to access my recordings with my new computer.
Summary: Although Sony has published 64 bit software for this unit it sadly does not work, as iterated by other reviewers. This is particularly disappointing as it is quite a handy unit, and the availability of Vista Home Premium, Vista Business, and Vista Ultimate 64 bit software [...
Summary: This is, I think, the fourth digital recorder I've owned -- I seem to wear out the buttons after about 2-3 years of constant use. These things keep getting better and better. I use it primarily for short voice notes to myself; I use it occasionally to record lectures or meetings.
Summary: I bought this for our Bible study to use to record our lectures. It has very good sound quality. The first time we used it with only the internal microphone. The next week we used it with an inexpensive clip-on microphone that we bought on ebay. The sound quality was about the same for both.
Summary: This recorder is a great buy. The microphone is highly sensitive and can pick up conversations from across the room.The USB cable and software is nice because you can set it up to automatically sync with your computer, and you can modify the audio.
Summary: It worked well the first year, but the we upgrade my computer to windows 7 and now to 8, and the recorder is not recognized by the computer. If you go to sony support page you wont find any real help. So now I home some interviews recorded on it that how I can not move to my computer.
