This Sony digital voice recorder is, simply put, an excellent purchase, representing value for money, high level of efficiency, and can be used for a myriad of different tasks, both in terms of business and in the home.
The dictation unit is small, portable and easy to use, measuring (W 3.5cm, L 11cm, D 2cm.) The buttons to activate the device are well positioned and accessible. Included in the price are two batteries, which are enclosed in the package, so there is nothing to prevent immediate use.
In terms of business, it will easily and clearly record meetings and of course notes and memoranda for subsequent typing up. The playback demonstrated a clarity of tone and diction.
Outlined in the instructions are many other features, and it is also ideal for recording lists or 'to do' items.
In terms of writing and developing themes , it may be used to quickly record thoughts and ideas without the need to go searching for a pencil and pad!
Sony have helpfully included space for a headphone jack, so playback may be private as well as an aperture for an external microphone. There are five folders so you may easily divide and organise your recordings into the various headings, thereby giving easy access for recall.
Navigation through the folders and recordings may be made through the clear on screen display and offers a whopping capacity of maximum time of 534 hours! That should be sufficient for most modest business and private uses.
I have used the unit and found it to be reliable, user friendly, without issues and excellent value for money. Recommended.
