Muy buena si no fuera el parlante...

ControlAltWeb, Amazon
22 June 2012
  • Summary: La grabadora es pequeña, fácil de usar, graba en diferentes ambientes sin problemas, y tiene una muy buena calidad de grabación en estereo. Le daría cinco estrellas si no fuera por: a)los materiales externos no parecen de buena calidad, el plástico se muestra muy delicado; b) el parlante incorporado es muy malo, una grabación de anotaciones personales hecha al lado del micrófono, debe ser escuchada a máximo volumen con la grabadora al lado del oído para poder entender...

VOLUME - TOO WEAK

Karen (Jacoba) ofs, Amazon
8 June 2012
  • Summary: I love Amazon but this Sony Recorder - although great in many aspects, didn't have a loud enough adjustment to use without earphones. I could barely hear it. I was sad to send it back and am now looking for another model (like the one I used to have, but lost) Unless you want to only use the earphones, I wouldn't purchase this one.

CHOOSE THE NEWER UPDATED MODEL

Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: It's pretty much common knowledge to anyone who has read the reviews here and elsewhere that the volume output of the built-in speaker for this model (ICD-UX512) is laughably and disturbingly weak... unless your only use for this DVR is to speak very close to the mic for self-notes and/or dictation then the speaker can be adequate for that. Otherwise, the built-in speaker is next to useless. No exaggeration. Seriously.

Sony ICD-UX512 has two varients

Amazon
10 September 2011
  • Summary: Although the supplier is not to be blamed, this model was different than the model I wanted to purchase. It seems that the Sony company made two models under the same label, with slightly different packaging but a very significant technical variant. The original model I had prior (picking up this second one from Amazon) came with a sleeve for the recorder and an 8 gig mini SD card.

Am I deaf?

Gr8Cook "5dog_ma", Amazon
27 August 2011
  • Summary: Has anyone had problems with this recorder or am I going deaf? It works great with earplugs but if you want to replay what has been recorded out loud for someone or a group of people it is barely audible. Yes, I do have the volume all the way up to 30! What gives? I can't say I am pleased with this recorder for this reason.
