Excellent! Quality, Recent Model, Sharp Appearance, Powerful Volume Capability, Clear Voice Technology ~ 5 Stars!

  • Summary: Perfect, excellent in many ways ~ Have been testing a number of these lately, and this is my number 2 choice in the field. Very nice. Most outstanding feature is the incredible volume and sound strength for a voice recorder this size. It's the highest out of any I have tested.

Poor quality feel for price

  • Summary: Microphone needs to be directly held in front of mouth or recording fades quickly. Awkward to hold this position while trying to read medical records onto tape. Poor quality feel for price!

Works well for me!

Northwoods Doc, Amazon
1 September 2008
  • Summary: I've been using the Sony M450 unit every day for several months -- ever since my previous Sony M430 finally gave up the ghost after 5 years of daily use. It works well, and gets the job done. Another reviewer complained of the lack of an "on/off" switch.

Ideal for Dictation

Fredrik King, Amazon
10 December 2004
  • Summary: I found this Sony recorder perfect for making quick dictation notes, so much so that I constantly use it and may well purchase a second one as a backup. It is ergonomically well designed, the appropriate control buttons easily accessed, and doesn't attempt to look fancy like the Olympus models.

No on/off switch?

Amazon
29 January 2004
  • Summary: I would not buy this product again. My unit emits a constant electronic hiss even when all controls are in the neutral position. As far as I can tell, there is--incredibly--no switch that disconnects battery power when the unit is not in use.

Save up and buy a digital recording device.

technoir, Dooyoo
23 March 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought the M450 Dictaphone some time ago as I needed to record some lectures and interviews. I had this in the days before digital recording devices were so commonplace. It is a tried and tested piece of technology and the reason why I bought the Sony Dictaphone, is that many years ago as a young...
