Sony ICD-U70 recorder

 

I use recorders in daily work. My workhorse is the old Olympus v90, which is no longer made but has simple design and easy erase function. Get 'em on eb*y for 30 bucks usually.

Plenty of storage for long lectures. USB drivers on unit, worked fine

Impossible design for erasure of messages. Poor sound quality/ volume on built-in speaker

Consumer review by:
