Summary: This is a dependable, portable cassette recorder with good battery life. It is easy to operate, not too heavy, easy to carry with me. I purchased it to have an easy way to record notes-to-self about melodies and song ideas. (Why not do this on my phone, you say? Because I like tapes and my job involves staring at a computer all day. I like to get away from digital interfaces when possible. ;) ) I have two minor complaints. 1.
Summary: I was very happy to learn that this product is still available on Amazon in new condition. This is a wonderful product because it's durable and long lasting. The Sony TCM-200DV, I have purchased back around the year 2000 is still working today. I wanted a new one because I have realized that this is an excellent product. I do plan to purchase two more of this this product just to have in the future.
Summary: I bought this for my college law classes. It is AWESOME!! The clarity and range of it is awesome!! I had a professor that walked did circuits around the room and I never missed a word of his lectures thanks to this recorder. It has been the best school purchased that I've made.
Summary: I had one of these for a couple of years,,,dropped it a few times, abused it now and then but it just kept working. I bought another one to keep in my car -- I use them for song ideas. In my opinion this is the best recorder of it's type made, maybe a few extra bucks but it will work forever.
One of the best cassette recorders for very clear recording of speaking and such

Summary: I purchased a number of these for a research project where we needed to record participants speaking. I needed cassette technology, which is getting harder to find. These worked wonderfully. They stood up to a lot of use and most of all they had excellent recording quality. I loved these little work horses. If you still need a cassette player - this is the one.
Summary: You call this a voice recorder, but it does not record. I cannot return it because I cannot print the bar code needed. This is the first purchase from Amazon that I have been unhappy with, and I am very unhappy with it .It may be that I received the wrong item, because I do see a record button on your illustration, which is not on the item I received.
