  • Certaily a bargain-maybe much better
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sourdough - May 18, 2017

    I have had limited use of this new recorder having only recently bought it. I was afraid it would be difficult to learn but it is surprisingly intuitive. My only complaint is that the accompanying instruction book is printed in type that is hard to read. After less than an hour of reading and experimenting, I was making recordings. Although I bought it to do interviews for a book, it turns out to do music recordings of my string band very nicely. I am only giving it four stars because I haven't fully tested it. If possible, I will return after using it and edit this review in light of more experience.

  • May well be better than good!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sageprod - June 23, 2017

    This recorder is small, seems rugged and works well for my limted needs which are two: 1) Music rehearsal recording 2) Transcribing interviews. (By playing at 50% speed but at same tone, making typing transcripts easier) The reason for 4 rather than five stars is because the software for editing which is t be downloaded was impossible for me to install. I was very disappointed. Most of the controls are intuitive but, still after a month of using this recorder, I still have to mess around a bit, guessing, in order to get to the function I want. Recording is a breeze, one button and it starts. There are a number of functions that I don't yet understand. They may turn out to be very helpful

  • Excellent Recorder for Musical Performances
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Whirly45s - September 10, 2013

    I purchased this recorder to take on a road trip to a guitar camp. We were allowed to record the workshops. The sound quality and clearness of the recording was amazing. It took a little practice to learn all the controls, but it was worth it. The recorder is compact in size but does a great job. I recommend getting the accessory pack since it have a hard shell case and a tripod. Recording to MP3 format, the 32GB SDHC card can record forever. I recorded over 10 hours of workshops on the same set of batteries, so it's pretty efficient. But it's always good to carry extras. I did not use the AC adaptor yet since I used this for field recordings. Transferring files to my laptop was easy. Overall a great value
