Becareful :They don't give you english instructions
9 July 2013
Summary: I ordered this, it looked just perfect , but unfortunately the seller doesn't send you instructions in English so unless you are from Japan or speak Japanese . Don't order it. Find someone who sells it in the language you speak. I would have given it 5 stars if I would have been able to actually use it and keep it.
Summary: Excellent sound quality, easy-to-use functions and good battery life make for a phenomenal product. The built-in microphones deliver detailed, rich recordings and provide for useful stereo mic configurations. Audio file management is simple and efficient. Wish a windscreen was included but all-in-all, I am very satisfied with the PCM-50.
Summary: OK, I used to think this is something can be connected to belt or something, but the truth is I'm wrong. It's only a case, with a band, nothing else. Yes it do protect the D50, but you can't listen to music when you put D50 into this case. And you can't bound this case to your belt like some walkman. So the only function of this case is it can protect your D50 from scratch and dirt. Although this function means nothing to me.
Summary: The build quality of this case is better then I expected. It's hard shell case protects the PCM-D50 very well, my back pack can get tight with everything in it. My particular case came with the metal faceplate falling off, no big deal, I just super glue'd it back on.
Summary: The case is nice looking and solid. It was made specifically for the recorder, and so it fits perfectly. WIth that said, the recorder was pricey and I think the least Sony could have done was thrown in the wind screen and the case!!!
Summary: Great case for my Sony PCM-D50. The PCM-D50 is made of metal and plastic. It is beautiful but I shudder to think what would happen to it if I dropped it from more than 6 inches. The Sony carrying case is thick and padded. If I dropped the device I believe the case would definitely protect if from a fall of 2 feet. More than that I cannot say nor do I ever want to find out. If you buy the Sony PCM-D50 you must buy the carrying case.
