Summary: Laid out a bit like an old fashioned cassette recorder; this recorder is very intuitive to use. The size is nice as there's plenty of room to use the buttons. It is particurally intuitive for the over 40 generation. Audio sound recording quality is simply amazing. The built-in play back speaker ...not so much so, however it is handy to listen to rather than having to grab headphones. I highly recommend this to anyone recording music, speakers, Church programs/sermons.
Summary: This item is great, I gave it to my girlfriend so that she could record her choir's performances in Ireland. It produced excellent sound, has good battery life, and a reliable onboard mic. I used SoundForge to transfer the audio to my PC and edited from there for a compilation CD. For the product, I say A+. However, after trying to purchase it here and striking out, I ended up going with J&R Electronics, who I fully recommend.
Summary: Looking at all record formats including solid-state recorders I settled on Sony's MZ-B line of recorders. Since the MZ-B100 I wanted something that could provide me with a cheap removable media solution as well as the flexibility of a digital unit. This recorder uses proven minidisc technology and creates a recorder that is truly unlike no other except its bigger cousin the MZ-b100.
Summary: I have been using this Minidisc recorder for about 6 months and overall it's not a bad little recorder. The battery life is excellent and it can record upto 320 minutes of audio. It has a reasonable speaker for its size. The few hiccups I have are; Built-in MONO microphone (Sony calls it a flat mic.
