    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.

    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.

    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!

    Was looking for a recorder with better recording qualities than my IPhone 6. Walked into Bestbuy and looked at several models on display floor. After doing a quick search online for customer reviews I selected what I believed was best model available. I use this recording device for school lectures and have not been disappointed with its capabilities. Battery life is great and battery indicator is a life savior.

    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.
