Summary: Ditto what ůZźY ωŬ≥ζŷ ♥☮♭♩♪♫♬♮☯☺♡✈ said except I don't like the case. It is only useful if you don't plan on carrying the recorder around. If you do, the case falls short and the recorder falls out. Since I got this recorder because it was better than my tiny Sony and smaller than my large Sony, I carry it around for podcasting and capturing sound for multimedia use.
Summary: I owned a previous version of this recorder and purchased this one when the last one died. I recently went on a business trip where I needed to record some interviews in rooms with less than optimal acoustics. I was very impressed with the ease of use, battery life and the recording quality. I used this for many hours over several days of all day meetings and the batteries held up very well, IMO. It was also very easy to transfer the recordings to my PC and MacBook Air.
Summary: The recorder does OK for my purposes--recording interviews for a resarch project. However, it comes with Dragon speech to text software (on a CD) that only works with PC, so I am not happy that I paid for that feature. The voice recordings are clear and compatible with iTunes on my Mac.
Summary: The sound it records is superb. It looks impressive, and refined. It has a ton of recording formats (maybe not a ton, that's an exaggeration) The HUGE disappointment is the menu on this thing- it sucks. I understand it's not a computer, or a smartphone- made for anyone to use. Why is it so difficult to delete what I just accidentally recorded?! It has an amazing amount of options- except delete.
Summary: This digital voice recorder works great and works great with the Dragon Naturally Speaking software. Integrates well so you can easily transfer recordings from the device to your PC. Lots of storage and also an expansion slot for more storage if needed. Easy to operate with lots of menus and options.
Summary: This recorder is far above what I expected. I just used it for the first time at a meeting in a very large room. It picked up speakers in the back of the room ( I sat up front) ! with a great degree of clarity and no external noise. I would recommend this recorder without reservations. It is very easy to use. My only disappointment is I wish I could find a nice carrying case because the one that comes with it is very flimsy.
Summary: An amazing product, which delivers more than what it promises. The stereo recording is awesome. The clarity of recording is excellent. Adding on a 8GB micro SD ensures that I have a 12 hr recording with the highest quality. Great Buy !!
