Summary: Has VOR so I can set it to record when someone speaks and it pauses when it doesn't detect sounds. It's accurate and lightweight. I'm glad I found this model, it has just what I need without too many confusing options.
Excerpt: I had been using micro-cassettes for years to record my notes when doing damage inspections. This little device is so much better, is easier to use, and has better sound quality. Battery life is excellent, and recording time is many times longer than the micro-cassettes.
Excerpt: I purchased this for genealogy interviews, which I will get to start in March. But, in the meantime, I have been recording music, from several sources, to play back as I work on my computer. It is very good quality.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this recorder for a series of interviews that I have to conduct as a part of my research project. Having used some other recorders recently, I found those to be awkward and not very intuitive from a user's perspective.This Sony however, is an easy one button operation.
