More PC than Mac friendly

  • 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. jb

Records Amazing Audio- The Menu System= DOS

  • Summary: Volume pick up seems limitted to a very short distance. It is okay but I would not recommend the purchase if the source of what you are recording is greater than 6 feet away.

  • Summary: i record minutes and transcribe from connecting the ear piece to the recorder, so having the backward and forward keys functions are important. I purchased this recorder early in 2012.

  • Summary: The recorder itself works great. Unfortunately, it is not as accurate as I had wished when used with Dragon Naturally Speaking 11. I find that it fails to recognize too many words that are accurately transcribed when using Dragon with a USB microphone on my computer.

Very good in some areas, not so good in one key area.

  • Summary: It is compact and seems to be state of the art. Sensitivity is incredible. The display is small and rather difficult to use. The on/off sliding switch is cumbersome. And the reason i decided to return it for refund is that it's difficult to download recordings to the computer, even after the...
