Summary: No doubt this flash recorder is a brilliant product for anyone willing to devote considerable time to learning how to use it and to deal with the complex menuing system. No doubt excellent for folks who travel. I used it for a few weeks after purchasing and found it did not do a great job of speech recognition when I tried to transcribe speech to text. Considerably less good than NatSpeak 10 using a decent mike.
I had to wear earphones to listen to the playback.

Summary: I could not hear myself well enough without wearing the earphones. I bought this item thinking I would be able to hear it with no problem and that just wasn't the case. It worked just fine with the earphones in! However, I don't like wearing earphones and was surprised when I found out I would have to in using this item.
Summary: The fact that my computer platform is MacIntosh I am unable to use "Dragon" to convert speech to written text. This was not pointed out in the blurb that accompanied the product. At least it wasn't obvious. The sound pick up could be stronger.
