I used to own a previous version of a Sony recorder ICD-BX800 it was lovely, but for that one I couldn't save my sound files on my computer, hence I bought this one, the upgrade was great, so far it has been a reliable product when it comes to recording lectures, interviews and my voice memos. The sound is really great (if used correctly). And this recorder is far more user friendly than the previous one I had :) I really recommend this product!
Best digital voice recorder for the price

I ordered this digital voice recorder a couple of months ago, and I couldn't be any happier. It's easy to use, and the playback sounds great. I also love that I can upload my recordings to my computer. Once I upload them to my computer and play them back, they sound even better. I would recommend this product to everyone.
Great hardware; awful software

We purchased several of these for use in classrooms to record student responses. The teachers found it easy to get started and make recordings. It was easy to retrieve the MP3 files off of the device when using it as an attached device (like a flash drive or camera). However, the Sound Organizer software can only be run by an Administrator or Power User; it cannot be run by ordinary users. This is totally unacceptable in our environment.
