Summary: I love it BECAUSE of it's sound quality and small size. I fits easily in my pockets and I can therefore record without anyone knowing - or asking why" I certainly recommend it to anyone, even music lovers.
Summary: I bought this recorder about a year ago after my other Sonny stopped working. This one just stopped too. At the time I paid about $60.00 for it. Now I see they are going for outrageous prices, probably because micro cassette recorders are being phased out. For $60.00 if it does not last long who cares. For the prices being asked for now, you could buy a sophisticated voice recognition software program.
Summary: Seems to be good quality and has held up well. The built in microphone is not very good and sound quality is much better with an external microphone (duh). Bought this for my wife who did not like the digital recorders and she is happy with it. The mini-cassettes are expensive and hard to find, but we knew that before we bought it. All things considered, we are happy with this recorder (If she's happy, I'm happy.).
Summary: As secretary of a Korean War veteran Chapter it is my responsibility to record all discussions that take place during our monthly meetings. Accuracy of all details is most important. The microsette recorder has enabled me to so record all details which then are transferred to e-mail for publication in our newsletter to be distributed to all our Korean War veteran members. Prior to purchasing the recorder from Amazon I made written abbreviated notes by hand.
Summary: I have been using a panasonic that was not giving me the quality and volume that I needed. Teachers all have a different pitch, tone and monotone. This tape recorder works for all the variety of speakers that I am taping in my Bible classes. It is great...should have bought it years ago. The stores do not sell these anymore....so use Amazon!!!
