Sound quality is very good in my opinion.
Hennie
I didn't want a shiney black surface and I still don't care much for the shiny black surface as it does show finger smudges.

It would be nice to find a recorder that can handle lossless audio recording without resorting to ADPCM.

First, specifications require SD or SDHC memory cards from 512 to 8 GB. Not all cards are the same and recording on different cards may cause the recorded sound to skip; therefore, the recorder may have to be used to reformat the card. I suggest to make a sample recording first. The card provided is manufactured by Toshiba.

The ICR-FP700D records Stereo 192kbps @ 60-20k Hz, Stereo 64kbps @ 60-7.5k Hz and Mono 32kbps @ 60-6.5k Hz. High quality recording requires more card memory where low quality recording requires less card memory: Figure approximately 10 hours recording for 1 gig of memory for High Quality Stereo Sound and approximately 60 hours recording for 1 gig of memory for Low Quality Mono Sound. Battery life for recording varies depending on sound and battery quality so figure approximately 15 to 30 hours from an alkaline battery.

To get any quality from such a little device is a good thing. The ICR-FP700D currently is the only model that can connect to a PC and that is something to consider although removing the SD card and inserting it into a media card reader worked too. I transferred the MP3 file to my PC and transfered the file into a wav editor program to find that it is truly a Stereo MP3. Nice!

The ICR-FP700D has stereo mics integrated or use the line input to add an external device that can be another mic or a tape player or a radio. Input sensitivity can be adjusted manually by setting the switch on the back to MIC or LINE. I tried LINE at first and got a poor recording. Then I tried MIC (this is with a radio headphone output as an input source) and got the quality I was wanting to hear.

If you want to use the timer to start a recording you can and also set the time duration to 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hour and ALL.

I've been looking for an SD card-based recorder for some time. And while I have a couple of MP3 players that can record audio it's nice to find a dedicated voice recorder that uses replaceable SD cards.

The ICR-FP700D is the stereo version of the monophonic SANYO ICR-FP600D Digital MP3 Voice Recorder. It features a black instead of a whitish/silver case. The shiny black case does tend to accentuate fingerprints. But I'm more into functionality than aesthetics.

Compared to my older Panasonic flash-based voice recorder this device doesn't come with proprietary drivers or software. It records directly to SD cards. In fact it has no internal memory of its own so SD cards are required for use (no big deal). A separate SD card reader isn't required because it also has its own USB port. The recorder is simply recognized as yet another storage device.

The recordings, even in MP3 format, are quite good. However I wish that the recorder allowed the user to select between MP3 or WAV for the output format. It would be nice to find a recorder that can handle lossless audio recording without resorting to ADPCM. The three selectable levels for microphone sensitivity along with the usual selection of quality-based recording formats does help improve things. The built-in stereo microphones along with a stereo microphone jack also help to add some more definition to the recorded sounds. But, as always, know your equipment and experiment with it first.

An interesting note is that this recorder's microphone jack doubles as a stereo line-in jack. A switch on the back of the device allows the selection between that and normal microphone mode.

I had high hopes for this little recorder but it just didn't work all that well. The worst problem is the playback of the messages you record - they sound scratchy and have a slight hiss. The speaker is VERY small and doesn't reproduce sound that well. When I listed to the recordings on my computer, they sounded better - however, I had purchased this recorder to record notes to myself and listen back from the device - not the computer.

Also, the little door for the SD card is so flimsy - it would be only a matter of time before it breaks off. The surface is a shiny black and really shows finger smudges.

Another thing, it is decribed as having four folders - it does have 4 folders but only ONE can be used for recorded messages made with the device - this is the folder named MIC. The others folders are for line recordings and other things. I was quite disappointed with that - I like to put different kinds of messages in different folders.

It is handy that it records in MP3 format - you could record a note to someone and then just plug the recorder into the computer or pop out the SD card and put it in a card reader and send the message to someone else via e-mail.

However, in my opinion, the disadvantages of this recorder outweigh the advantage of recording in MP3 format. I decided to return it.

I found the Sanyo ICR-FP700D to be as advertised. Be aware that if you use the built-in speaker for play back, it will hum rather badly. However, if you play back via USB onto your PC, the audio is just fine. The USB plug cover is bound to break off; it just doesn't have a strong feeling, but it hasn't as of yet. I only use this for choir recordings and find the audio to be very good. The device is small but not too small for my big male hands. Overall, I like the device and would recommend it to others.
