Summary: This product was deemed as being new. The package had been opened already and had been used. There was a recording on the Voice Recorder so I wouldn't categorize this as new. Other than that, I love the product.
Summary: It's a great device. We use it for all our meetings. You're able to make different folders on your recorder which helps if you go to many different meetings. The audio quality is great. It's very user-friendly.

Good for occassional dictation but not for anything more

Summary: I have an Olympus DS 330, and I bought the Sony as a backup when I thought the Olympus needed repair (it turned out to only need reformatting). I do quite a lot of dictation, including both lengthy and brief documents. The Sony has large buttons and is easy to use in the sense that it's easy to press the correct button to dictate, stop or listen to what was previously recorded. It also does a pretty good job of overwriting prior dictation in order to edit it.

Summary: I picked this device up to dictate emails, letters and ideas that I could later get typed up with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred - Medium Box . It works great. Setup was a little funky with my Windows computers ... I didn't have to train the software to the unit, like Sony suggested. It just worked with my user profile that I already had created in Dragon NaturallySpeaking with my natural voice.
Summary: This is a great product and it works well in the class room. I have used it for two day long lecture seminars held in a classroom at the local JC. I really enjoy the pc link so you can save the lectures to be heard again at a later date. Comes with CD of installable software.
good recorder, but file transfer could be a lot simpler

Summary: It is a very good recorder. From my testing, it can record sounds that you can hear (assuming the recorder is near you ;)). I havent yet tested how long the battery lasts. From the limited recording I did, it looks like it will definitely last a few hours of recording, which is more than enough for me. The biggest problem with this recorder is file transfer to PC. For device that supports USB transfer, this is about the worst implementation you can have.
