Summary: This is an excellent recorder. I especially like the noise cut feature which works very well. The ambient noise can be effectively reduced. It accepts a 32GB micro SD card, although takes longer for the device to start up compared to using a 16GB card. The only drawback I can see is that when I turn it off while I'm listening to a long recording (lecture, for example), it won't remember the point where it had stopped the next time I turn it on, unlike the Olympus LS-10.
Summary: I have to say that I was quite surprised upon receiving the voice recorder because the product material was not what I was expecting. It felt rather light and plastic. I was expecting for the recorder to be made out of steel or metal of some sort, especially since it's a Sony product but that was not the case.~Wished it was made in Japan instead of China. The older versions of this product seems more durable as well.
Summary: Using it for recording classroom lectures and it's great. Back ground noise elimination switch comes in handy for large classes. People must say coughing for class time! Computer usb connection works super fast, just plug in, cut and paste to my desktop and DONE! The 712 has a date and time stamp and the clock syncs the calendar and clock automatically when connecting with the usb.
Summary: I bought this recorder after sufferring with attempts to buy a good one from a different manufacturer. This Sony recorder works well. I use it at doctors appointments where I want to remember what they said especially when at my wife's doctors appointments. They last for hours and I hope to be able to stop taking notes and pay more attention to what's going on.
