Just Checked It Out

By jandbrare

from The Villages, FL

Comments about Sony 2GB Digital Voice Recorder:

I've played with the Sony ICD-AX412, today. It's nice. But, Sony advertises a backlit screen provision, which I've not found? Also, it is not as "ready" as my old Olympus VN-480PC, which begins recording from an "Off" status by simply pressing the "Rec" button. The Sony requires that an On/Off switch be used and that you wait while memory is processed...sometimes 10 seconds if there is a Micro SD card installed. I suspect the recording quality of the Sony will be better.

    Comments about Sony 2GB Digital Voice Recorder:

    The recorder worked better then I could have imagined. Everything I recorded was very clear. The program disk that comes with the recorder makes this product better and downloading the recordings to my laptop couldn't have been easier. I love this recorder and would recommened it to anyone looking for a good product.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I needed the recorder to take with me on a trip and I was leary that it would ship and get to my home before I left. It was shipped the day I ordered it and arrived a few days later. I still had a couple days to get familiar with everything before I left. I have already recommended Abt for their purchase and delivery process as well as their pricing. I will use them for all my future electronic purchases!
