Nice little recorder!


Well worth the price. It does a very good job recording.

MP3/WAV, stereo sound, input meter, very portable and lightweight. Lots of recording time on a single AA. Very easy to use

Plastic feels cheap, and as another reviewer noted, very noisy when handled. Definitely use a tripod
