just what I was looking

Good sound quality. Purchased it to record a presentation I was giving. I frequently took a few steps away from the recorder during the presentation, but this never affected sound quality. Figured out the interface without reading the instructions. Sound editing software on the recorder was exactly what I needed. It was easy to cut and combine segments of the recording. USB connectivity as advertised. Simply plugged the recorder into USB port on my laptop to copy the MP3 recording onto my hard drive.

Use this for my lectures in class. In the main one I used it for, it sits a little bit away from the professor because she walks around so much. I can always hear whatever it is she's saying really clearly with no distortion.

Very useful for recording business meetings.
Posted by: BobT from: Gainesville, VA on
I used this to record all day business meetings in a large conference room. Sound qualiy and pickup across the room was very good. Ease of transfer to my computer was appreciated and makes for simple archive for record and later review.

Perfect for business related use
Posted by: smurf293 from: on
I choose what digital recorder to buy carefully. Not wanting something too expensive but at the same time needed the additional features this one has to offer. I'm very happy with it. Good value all around. At first the only thing I was unsure of was the need to use interchangeable batteries, whether they be rechargeable or disposable. But having used the recorder a lot since buying it, I am very impressed with how long one fresh set of batteries will last before the battery indicator starts to flash. I use it a lot and I get nearly 2 months of use out of it before the batteries get low. Sound quality is perfect and this is ideal for business meetings. Highly recommend.

High quality audio in poor conditions
Posted by: hyr558 from: Fargo ND on
I'm a professional researcher and use this model recorder exclusively. I've purchased about six over the past year for the rest of our team to use. They work well in one-on-ones as well as in a large room. As we often have the recordings transcribed, we're very particular about the sound quality - and this model provides a high level sound quality for even the most difficult conditions. An added bonus is the built-in male USB connection to download the files directly into your computer. I've also noticed the price has been reduced over the past three times I've bought them, which of course is an added bonus, making them an even better value.

Replaced a 10 year old Sony Voice Recorder
Posted by: BestBuyFanatic from: on
Replaced a 10 year old Sony Voice Recorder. This is fantastic and stores a ton of time and if you need more insert a memory card! Just wish it had a back lit up screen for in the dark.

I bought this item for work. It is a great tool when you need to write a lot of reports. You speak what you want written into the microphone ( I use a headset) and when connected to the computer Dragon Naturally Speaking types it up for you. Proof read and submit report is all I have to do.

This unit works very easy and picks up sound without having to yell or be directly at the source. This recorder works great for my job.

This is a great device. I use it to record employee meetings at work and to record telephone conversations with elderly relatives to keep their stories of their early days and childhood. This device is perfect.
