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 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

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.

Disappointed.

By 

from 95695

Comments about Sony 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

Disappointed in instructions. First digital recorder I have owned and directions pointed out names of buttons already named on device, and how to load batteries and set time. Didn't need instructions for any of those things....pretty standard. Didn't explain how to use folder or divide buttons and I have no idea what those are. Very little info on outside of box. I thought all recorders accept SD cards but this one doesn't. I will be returning it.

An Author's Best Friend

Comments about Sony 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

It is a valuable part of my toolbox in writing… My fountain pen, my iPad and my digital voice recorder by Sony! Easy to use, the Sony digital voice recorder is perfect for all of my recording needs! The date and time access is particularly valuable for those audio segments I need to access. Truly, this tool is like a hammer when I need to "pound" out those thoughts!

Micro Digital Recorder

By 

from Michigan, USA

Comments about Sony 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

If you're looking for a micro digital voice recorder for a modest price this Sony model ICD-BX140 is decent. It's about 2/3rds the size of a "bar" sized cellphone so it is small. That's a convenience for most folks. The controls are reasonably easy to use. The built in mic isn't great but it's OK for recording notes or conversation, IME. I don't know that it's good enough for music however. Recording time seems reasonable for the AAA sized batteries that are included. It will easily fit in a shirt pocket for carrying ease.

Good Purchase

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

Excellent recording quality. Great functionality. I give it 4 stars because it did not come with a user manual. It is completely online which, for me, is very cumbersome. I like getting the most out of my purchases and enjoy having the manual at my fingertips for learning and future reference.

frustrated

By 

from Valleyview , AB

Comments about Sony 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

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

Comments about Sony 4GB BX MP3 Digital Voice IC Recorder:

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.
