Summary: I used this a few times. Records in compressed Mp3 / and uncompressed formats at various sampling rates. Onboard mic's decent. I was not able to get more than about an hour of battery time while recording......
Summary: You can download the TASCAM DR-08 manual because it is the same (except for 24 bit/96k recording) . You can also easily update the firmware with TASCAM DR-08 firmware and add the above functionality. Search for the VR-20 firmware hack and substitute the VR-10 firmware.
Summary: I purchased the Teac VR-10 in white from Amazon, LLC. It's a compact portable digital record but with outstanding audio performance. It has no internal storage, but ships with a 2GB microSD card. I have used an 8GB micro SDHC card successfully with this recorder.
Summary: I use this whenever I get an idea for a rhythm in my head. I just pull it out, turn it on record, and then start humming or whatever. Later, when I have more time, I can sit down and play the guitar or drum machine or piano to get the idea onto the computer. Works great for what I bought it for.
