Summary: The item could not last for no more than 5 months. And the seller is not responsible for this. The manufacture need the customer pay the shipping and handling fee, even the product is still covered by warranty. So, the Sony policies is not friendly at all. I don't recommend this product.
Summary: I use this to record university lectures. This is my main use. I have been using this for close to a year now and it is great. I also have a back up Nexus 5 (cell phone) that I use when I forget this thing, but the difference between this vs a cell phone that you bring with you all the time is that the audio recorder is much clearer and louder especially when you sit further back.
Fair over all operation. Exellent sound quality recording meetings.

Summary: Altough the folder and file structure of the recorder was somewhat difficult for me to get used to, I found that the recorders ability to record coversations and meetings perfect for my needs. I also like the Sound Organizer that was included with it. Very nice.
Summary: Got this to record meeting minutes and was quite pleasantly surprised at the quality of the recording. Also use to record my own thoughts and ideas for writing--all I can say is WOW. Size is great and ease of use is wonderful.
Summary: This is an amazing recording device. It has a long life battery but more importantly the quality if audio is amazing. I am able to discern my conversation from that of others in a crowded restaraunt. I am very impressed.
Summary: I'm 100% sure this is an open box item. I don't know what's going on here. There are finger prints on the play button and not even have a cover on the screen. The worst thing is there are scraches on the screen and back. Don't buy it.
Summary: 5 star gaming provided 2 day shipment and a can't tell it from new used item. I would definitely buy from them again and buy this recorder again as well. This may be the smallest 24/96 recorder available so inconspicuous recording won't get better than this.
