Summary: Product received did not work correctly. The motor was shot, and when trying to record, all that would record was a hissing noise. Tried to work out an exchange/refund, but the seller never responded.
Summary: I bought this for a Christmas present and it didn't work - very embarrassing. So I returned it and bought another which was no better than a $25 cheap model. Wanted so much to give a great present to a dear friend and this was awful!
Summary: I had a very positive experience with this recorder as editor of a magazine and used it for interviews, conferences and large meetings -- it has sensitivity settings for each environment, and two options for elevating it for best reception.
Summary: I honestly don't know what to think of microcassette recorders. You figure Sony has to produce a good one; after all, it's Sony. Well, not necessarily. I bought one of these because I do occasional taped interviews. It seemed to work well and always got the attention of the people I interviewed.
