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.

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.

Rare item that justified buying new

By 

from Austin, TX 78758, USA

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

I rarely buy electronic products new but this one seemed worth it and has completely proven itself to have been worth it. I've used it for hours daily recording my interactions with a severely narcissistic family member and it's been very valuable to give me a record of all interactions for future reference. Even at 48kbps (one of the long-record modes) voice quality is great. I use two NiMH AAA rechargeable batteries and they last days after being recharged. Being able to disable the beep and LED is good for not drawing attention to the recorder. The hold switch has proven valuable to avoid accidentally stopping a recording. The track mark feature is quite useful to note interesting points to go back to later. For other uses this also was unexpectedly useful. It has an external mic plug which supports a stereo external microphone, with full stereo recording. I used this to make some nice stereo recordings of our pond's water falling sound, and of a rain storm. This unit can also play back mp3 files, including stereo music tracks, and the sound quality is great when using headphones, with rich bass, though the display is small so navigating a lot of music files would be difficult. I wouldn't have expected this unit to be so full-featured beyond just mono voice recording. Computer syncing has been a breeze. Zero problems with USB connection (using Ubuntu Linux), copying files, safe removal, etc. It's never a given that a device will work well with a computer. I like the mini-USB connector on the side, which is convenient as I have other things that use this.

frustrated

By 

from Valleyview , AB

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

I HAVE LOST THE FIRST PART OF 2 DIFFERENT INTERVIEWS AFTER THE RECORDER SHUT OFF. I QUICKLY TURNED IT BACK ON AND COULD NOT FIND THE FIRST PART OF THE RECORDING. I USE THIS FOR CONTRACT WORK AND AM FRUSTRATED THAT I CANT RELY ON THIS RECORDER. MAYBE I AM USING IT WRONGLY. THE RECORDER IS A LITTLE OVER A MONTH OLD.

Great Purchase

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

This product is easy a lot easier to use than my RCA digital voice recorder. The product also gives me the capability to convert my recordings into MP3 files. I should have purchase the Sony digital voice recorder before I purchased the RCA.

Very Nice & Great Size

By 

from Clovis, NM

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

I like the Sony digital recorder for all my meetings that I need to record the minutes. What I like about it is that the folders you can create with the program it has and store them. Nice & compact and very workable. I recommend this product to my professional friends.

Fine device at great price

By 

from Seattle

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

This isn't the Rolls Royce of audio recorders, but it's well-suited to both personal and professional use and doesn't cost $250. Audio quality and recording time meet the needs of professional news reporters -- including FM folks -- especially when employed with an external microphone. Editing and others functions are very limited, but those of us who actually do this stuff for a living always use PC-based audio editing applications. And transferring audio files is simple and quick.

great purchase

By 

from Union, NJ

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

I got the Sony ICD-PX333 to replace my older PX820. The new one has many improvements over the older model, like continuous play of folders and auto shut off to save on battery life. I use rechargeable AAA's and with the shut off it helps them last longer.

2 different versions?

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Sony Black 2GB Digital Voice Recorder With Dragon NaturallySpeaking Software:

This is a great little recorder, the microphones pick up voices very clearly and it records music with outstanding fidelity. There seems to be some confusion about the specs for this model, however. The one I have has no abilitly to manually set record levels, and there is no mention of such ability in the manual or 'help guide'. Sony must have upgraded/changed the specs, because the current ads for this same model say it has the option of manual record levels, which is one reason I chose this model. I am disappointed that my UX533 doesn't have this capability. On the other hand, I got it for a very low price. Maybe the older ones w/o this feature are going for less.
