BEST DEAL FOR SONY ICD-SX7000D DIGITAL VOICE RECORDER
29 October 2011
Summary: i am a hynotherapist. my digital recorder broke shortly before a scheduled client. i not only found the best price plus shipping to Hawaii with an Amazon seller for an upgraded version, but i was impressed with how quickly i received it and in excellent condition. i saved the client.
Summary: I know Im not stupid....have a graduate degree....but this has got to be the worst product Amazon sells. The directions are poorly written,the quality of the recording is terrible. I have not been able to use it and would return it if I had the original packaging.
Summary: Sadly, I was mailed a non-functioning one. It wouldn't turn on no matter what batteries, no matter if the hold button was on or off. I could have been unlucky, but it really sucked spending over a hundred for something that didn't work.
Summary: I purchased my SX700 a couple of years ago for general audio recording. I carried it around in my professional backpack along with my laptop and other geek gear. I really like the quality of the recording, but the controls are not at all good.
Summary: I bought this gadget, used, about a year ago, for about $100.00. I've used it less than ten times. I was a bit inconvenienced by the control and display layout. The buttons are on the right side, so it seems most natural to hold this with your left hand, so your fingers will be on the buttons.
Summary: Purchased February, 2010. Used about a dozen times. Never mistreated. It now shorts batteries and doesn't work at all. Sony will exchange it for $80.00. This is not good product support policy.
Summary: This is a great improvement over the previous Sony digital recorder I purchased. The buttons are smaller, so if you have larger hands or fingers, you might have to take it slowly when operating. All-in-all, a good buy.
