Sony 2GB Digital Voice Recorder


This is a great little recorder - crisp, clear display, pretty obvious function controls, a sensitive mic, and excellent audio quality.

Very unimpressed


No way to download the sound files? On a $55 voice recorder? On a $25 MP3 player you can move music and sometimes other file types back and forth easily via USB.

The recorder is small and compact and records clearly. when standing alone. When placed in a pocket the recording quality decreases.

Great Recorder


I bought this recorder because I attend meetings twice a month and I transcribe the minutes. It is very reliable and easy to use. I can sit at my desk and listen and type. I can pause at any time and rewind if I need to. I like the multiple folders it...
