Summary: The recorder itself is great piece of hardware. It works great, records well, plays back well, supports earphones and mics. As a self-memo (or audio note taker), it is great. I found the packaged Dragon NaturallySpeaking software clunky however.
Summary: Product performs well once I learned a little Chinese? The manual is in Chinese 1/2 the prompts are in Chinese this is more a seller thing. The seller did not indicate this item and support information (manual)was in Chinese. My fault should of stuck to the box store.
Summary: No where in the product description does it say that 64-bit OS is not supported. When I tried to install the Digital Voice Editor software, I got an error saying the OS wasn't compatible. Since I had a new Dell sith Vista Home Premium, I thought it would be okay.
Summary: I have yet to install/try the Dragon Naturally Speaking software, but the recording device is superb. It has a minimal learning curve, has numerous options, such as reduced or accelerated playback speeds (great for transcription!!!), and has a myriad of volume playback options.
Summary: The recorder itself is very very cool, especially when paired with a . The recordings are crisp, and a battery charge lasts forever. If you're planning on doing speech-to-voice transcription, I highly recommend this product as well.
Summary: The package was easy to open, but that is where easy stopped. The directions are not user friendly as I am still trying to figure out how to turn the recorder on. I have yet to actually use the product since it takes four hours to charge the batteries initially and I need a good week to work through...
Summary: I use this for meetings and note taking. Documentation is not the best, but once through the learning curve, it works great. Dragon is not the greatest, but it works well once you have figured it out. For those on the road, you can't beat its size.
Summary: I read the reviews about software problems but bought this recorder anyway. To my relief the software installed without a hitch, except that the first time I recorded the 15 minutes of text required to activate the Dragon Naturally Speaking software the signal to noise ratio was too low.
Summary: I purchased this product to help with note taking. The user manual is not very helpful. I am a novice with a lot of technical equipment, but am not a dummy and it seems that the instructions "assume" that there is a greater knowledge base.
Summary: I value the comments and reviews on Amazon very highly and usually make my purchases based upon them. However, in this case, the reviews for this product were either very negative or very positive and I decided to heed the advice of the Scribbletalk review and purchase this item.
