Disappointed

Karla Hammond, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: I am diappointed in the quality of sound and the static that it seems to pick up from the background. Also, the earlier microcassette recorders that I have purchased were made of a more durable metal material as opposed to plastic (?) Nor have I ever paid this much for a recorder before. I had higher expectations for SONY.

Great piece of equipment!

Paula Dion, Amazon
24 June 2013
  • Summary: I've bought other units in the past and they were not as good quality. The sound recordings are great. It is very light. It felt a bit cheaply made, but that being said it really has done a great job.

Not worth the investment

Shelley Wright, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: I was hoping this would take care of the throw-away version. This one shuts off after just three seconds of dictation. Keeps doing it. Absolutely worthless! Going back to the throw-away kind!

Failed after 3 months

Kathy, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: We use microcassette recorders daily and for the money spent, expect it to perform. We purchased this in January and it failed within three months. It stops mid-recording and is no better than a brick. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

  • Summary: I bought this to record interviews. It has no microphone plug. I had to send it back. ASTONISHING that a Sony product sold at this price would lack this essential plug!!!

Great Recorder

Charles, Amazon
10 October 2012
  • Summary: This recorder is about as good as it gets when it comes to dictating. The recorder is easy to use, has great clarity and, unlike other recorders I have recently purchased (and either threw out or returned broken), it actually operates as it should. I am pleased that one is still able to purchase a quality mini cassette recorder in this world of digital recorders.

One of the best tape recorders.

Timothy Lassiter "Joe", Amazon
8 October 2012
  • Summary: I've owned this Microcassette Recorder (Pearlcorder S831) for 12 years and it's a gift that keeps on giving. Some of my tapes are years old and still I refer to them when I need/want to revisit a past event. Thankfully my wife had the wisdom, now deceased, to insist upon carrying the recorder with us in the auto glove box just in case. The simple act of visiting family or friends on special days shall always be an important part of my cherished memories of her.
