Summary: The recording quality is excellent and the recorder is simple to use. We bought this so my wife could record an interview. In the first few days that she was testing it the on/off switch fell off. I used some crazy glue and put it back on but the switches are just cheap plastic. As long as you're really careful with it you should be fine..
Summary: I purchased this recorder a few months ago when it was on sale in a local store. I wanted a recorder as backup for times when my phone battery was dying or when I needed to record a call. I weighed the the necessity of usb connectivity to the price difference, and I decided that I just couldn't afford the extra $20 to be able to connect it to my computer. I was aware, per the packaging, that this device would not connect to my computer for file transfer.
