Excerpt: I am currently using this to record natural ambient sounds (birds chirping, ocean waves, etc.) with the intent of manipulating them in my DAW. The sound quality is solid and the microphones are clear. It is lightweight and easy to use.
Excerpt: I purchased this as a Christmas present for my son, who is an aspiring film maker. He used for to record sound from a boom microphone for the movie he was making. It records high quality sound, is pretty easy to navigate and organize files into folders, and comes with batteries and a micro SD card.
Summary: A first rate product. Exceeded my expectations. Real value for the money. I use it for digitizing analog sources to make high quality CDs. It can do much more of course. I recommend this recorder.

Pros: Compact Design, High Quality Sound, Long Battery Life, Reliable
Excerpt: This little gem works great for everything I have tried it on.... mount it to a light stand to record your band rehearsal sessions - yes, it really works AND the drummer is not all you hear...I use the Limiter function when live recording my band.
