This little device serves many uses, from secretly recording live conversations to recording the fun at a party. The sound quality is about the same as a decent portable cassette recorder (if you remember those). This records a WAV file at a data rate of 128K and a sample rate of 16K. (CD's are 44.1) While music may sound a little fuzzy, voices come out quite clear. This is one of the few USB recorders that has an AGC circuit to prevent distortion when the volume gets too loud. This alone will more than compensate for other units like this that have higher data rates but no AGC.

Ease of use can't be beat. Turn the switch on and it begins recording seven seconds later, indicated by a red, then a dull blue light well subdued within the mike hole. Turn the switch off and it stops recording. The only thing to make sure you do is wait for the light to go off before inserting this into the USB port. It needs a second or two to save the file when you turn it off.

Good quality recordings. Format WAV. Only downfall is the 15 second wait before it starts recording when the switch is on.

So I'm not a fan of the build quality, but otherwise I'm really happy with it.

It's so easy to use, it's obscene. Just a matter of flipping the switch, wait for the LED indicator to turn blue, and go. And the files were way too easy to access and open then I plugged it in via USB.
It's subtle, really subtle, and I was able to walk around my office all day, recording everything as it goes.
The mic is very sensitive - although I had it around my neck and it picked up every time it brushed against my tie, it still got people from as far as 5 or 6 yards away with no problem.
And as I said, I was able to use it all day, i.e. over 10 hours without a hitch, and it still had juice after it all.

All in all, no regrets in buying this

The sound quality is not bad, the battery life is great, I can get 12~14 hours recorded time. Easy to download on laptop

This item works great and the clarity is awesome. To delete any previous recording you open the file on your desktop of your pc, highlight it, and simply delete the recording. There is also a reset hole that a very small straight pen will work to push in the reset inside. You just have to operate it more, get familiar with the features.

Probably good in a smaller room, but did not work out very well in a large hall with poor acoustics.

Will change to five stars as soon as it works properly. I use this to record my lectures at uni and it was recording in .WAV format for one and a half weeks and then all of the sudden it started to record in some other weird format that couldn't be opened by any sort of media player. I reformatted it and took a random recording and saw that it was recording in .WAV format again. Next day I used it for lecture and when I plugged the recorder into my computer I noticed that once again, it wasn't recording in .WAV, and instead recording in the other strange format I mentioned earlier. I have just done a reset on the product and I will be trying it out shortly. Hope this works, I don't want to send this one back to buy another one since this is relatively inexpensive compared to the others I saw.

UPDATE: I resetted the product once again after fully charging it and it WORKED... for one week... the audio format was back to .WAV and now it's back to an unreadable file. Hell, I don't think it's a file at all since there isn't an extension. All it says is REC001AV. I am extremely disappointed because I was recording information that I need. I am not sure if I will be willing to give this one last chance because if I do and it stops working again, I will no longer be able to return the product because 30 days have passed.

The sound quality was more than I had hoped for, great to keep in my fiddle case to catch new tunes to learn by ear.

Arrived and charged up and worked the first time just fine, although it felt and looked less sturdy than a 4 GB that I already had. After its first use, however, it never worked again. The little light inside, which was either blue or red depending upon its state, was never on again. I sent it back.
