Great Recorder, but be cautious of the Sound Organizer for your PC
29 February 2012
Summary: The IC Recorder ICD-SX712 promises as advertised. I use it to record University lectures and am able to distinctly filter out background noises (ex, such as the constant coughing, sneezing, gossiping, etc) from the device's settings. However, when I downloaded the most recent Sound Organizer from, Sony's website,to backup and "burn," the lectures to DVD as a secondary precaution.
Summary: i purchased it to record lectures at college. I could never get it to transcribe using dragon naturally speaking V 11.5. I finally did a live chat with Sony. After an hour the technician disconnected without fixing or offering any suggestions. must have been his lunch break. He just sent me to a support survey and a link to new Sony products.
