Waste Of Money

  • Summary: I received my Sony recorder the 1st of April and have used it twice. I proceeded to use it this evening and it won't turn on at all.

Be warned!! NO USB!

S. Asay "The One Less Traveled", Amazon

  • Summary: While this may have great recording capabilities, I returned it immediately because it has NO USB! I read up online and it said you have to get software to download the sound files. No thank you! I'll get one that has USB (my fave is the Olympus WS-801 Voice Recorder).

Good sound. Bad user interface. VERY bad manual.

Doctor.Generosity, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a cute little Sony recorder, precision made and shaped, with the typical superb Sony materials and manufacturing. There are two good things about the functionality. First, it records with excellent sound quality. Second, you can plug it in with a USB cord so you can see, listen to or save the sound files on your computer. That's the end of the good stuff. The user interface is atrocious.

Way too complicated

Jane Boswell, Amazon
15 June 2013
  • Summary: Trying to save a file is a nightmare and very confusing. There are too many steps to records, sort, find, save or file. Could be simplified. Never use it.

No USB output

Daniela Rivera, Amazon
9 April 2013
  • Summary: I guess you get what you pay for. The recorder is pretty much useless as you have no way to export the audio to a computer or any other device. No USB port or anything.

Read SONY's NO PRIVACY Policy

David Rodriguez, Amazon
6 January 2013
  • Summary: The software to manage recorded files has spyware that can give Sony COMPLETE access to anything on your Mac or PC. Its under the guise of "copyright protection" but who uses a low cost recorder to distribute bootleg recordings?

Not for dictation

drkirkbrown, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I have two older Sony's that are great but need replacing. Bought this one to try for dictation and its a bust, can't use it at all. The problem is on playback it cuts off words so you have to rewind every time you restart which is very annoying and wastes a lot of time. Don't buy this one for dictation!

Flagon Mat to sea leaking?

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 November 2012
  • Summary: Ok the recorder is great. Easy and intuitive to use, out of the box and working in ten minutes. It could have been working in two minutes, but packaging these days is most definitely not designed for people with poor eyesight or arthritis. Forget the free batteries - send it with a Stanley knife and hammer. The downer to this deal is the "dragon naturally speaking" software.

Cannot transfer files to computer

Shawna Joaquin "SLJ", Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: Fine for taking notes, but files cannot be transferred to your computer. Information is misleading and it does not come with the ability to buy a connection and use that. Packaging was difficult to open without destroying, so now will have to see if they will accept as return.

Disappointed

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 March 2012
  • Summary: I didn't realized it has NO USB port. It will very difficult transfer audio files to a computer. My god, it is 21st century. It is not 1980's. No USB, that makes this product like a joke.
