    The building in usb was convenient for charging and uploading though slightly awkward to plug into a wall charger.

    Great recorder and runs only on 2 AAA batteries, and the run on on freshly charged included NiMH batteries will last over 24Hrs in my tests.

    Used this recorder in a 2-1/2 day class & it was great. Picked up minimal back ground noise & the battery lasted thru the whole 8 hr class. Great buy

    So far, all of my recordings have been crisp and clear. The playback through the built-in speaker is sufficient, but I prefer using headphones. Love the rechargeable batteries.

    The item has all the options needed in a digital voice recorder. Saves by date so multiple files can be available, long battery life, several record mode options, and able to download to other devices to mention some of the best. .

    I needed something small and compact when I attend certain circles/classes that I could record for later use and review. This has been the perfect tool and accessory for doing so. I really enjoy that I just plug into my laptop for charging without having to have extra plug or adaptor. I do recommend purchasing an external microphone.

    Product has very good recording quality and is simple to use. Easy playback and good battery time. Lots of helpful features but need to read the manual to find them.

    When charging recorder using usb to computer you have to hit ok on the recorder or it won't charge. Lost valuable interviews because I thought it was charged. Get a Sony. Idiot proof!
