Excerpt: I purchased my PCM-D50 about six months ago, and immediately ordered the wired remote and an extra SD memory card. This is an excellent instrument for inobtrusively recording church choirs. The sound quality is excellent, and the software that came with the instrument provides practically every feature you could ask for.
Excerpt: With typical Song quality, style, features and functions, the PCM-D50 is a powerful recording device that is both easy to use (plug N play) and packed with recording capability and features. I looked at all the other brands and decided to go with Sony based on prior product experience. I am very pleased with the decision. I am a techno idiot and do not like to mess with a lot of details. I was able to use the unit immediately without any trouble.
