Very good inexpensive recorder

 

I had purchased the Sony M-450 when it first came out in 2004. I was disappointed when I first received it because the catalog from which I ordered specifically said this model had Voice Activated Recording, which it does not.

No auxillary input, fixed recording level, a little background hiss, marginal speaker

Great little recorder for the money!

 

I was elected Secretary of the PTA, and with my note-taking skills, I decided that a recorder was a must!

Good sound quality, low price

And the M-450 uses microcassettes so it's small enough to hide away anywhere.
