PROS-
-outstanding voice quality

- Small and light

-unobtrusive

- easy to download recordings to your computer

- Long record time with 2 GB of memory - 22 hours at highest quality. Does anyone need more?

- Memory cards give virtually unlimited record time. I popped in a thumbnail sized 8 GB Sandisk micro sd (about $10) for a total of 10 GB of memory. That gives a total of more then 110 hours of record time at the highest quality level (at lower fidelity levels, record time is higher, as much as 2700 hours with 10gb of memory). Not enough? You can put in a 32GB card, which will give nearly 400 hours of top quality record time. At lower fidelity settings, 32 gigs will give up to around 9000 hours. Amazing, 32 gig in a thumbnail sized memory card.

- recordings are easily transferred to your hard drive

- Simple to operate
The basic buttons are Record/pause, Play, Stop, Fast forward, and Rewind.

-Mike is quite sensitive, but well controlled- able to record well in a conference with many people at different distances.

- Lanyard hole in case - Helpful - Get one or put a string through the hole.

- works with Dragon voice to text software

CONS
- Case is made of smooth slippery plastic. Nowadays you can buy a $1 pen with a grippy rubbery outside. A grippy rubber surface on the sides and back would make this easier to hold!

- a lanyard should be included

- Instruction manual is ridiculously long - this is not a complicated device to operate. The manual is too verbose.

- Cannot modify existing "scene" modes or create my own. A "scene" mode is a collection of record settings geared toward a particular task.

We have used this little jewel to tape lectures from the back of an auditorium, meetings, as well as online webinars - the SCENE settings allow you to change from interview to notes to lecture to meetings, just with a push of the button. Using an mini-SD chip gives you all-day recording space. Easy on the AAA batteries, too! Way to go, Sony!

I just retired my Sony ICD-B600 Digital Voice Recorders (I had several) and replaced them all with this Sony ICD-PX312 unit. When I saw the Amaz. delivery promise for this PX312 had shifted to "1 to 3 months," well I figured the PX312 for out-of-production ... and so this was as low as prices were going to get. So I snagged several off the pegs at WorstBuy.

The primary reason I upgraded is that the PX312 makes it very easy to save audio files on my hard drive. It has a female A-Mini-USB plug on the side and so I can use my Zip-Linq Retractable USB to A-Mini-USB Cable to connect it to the computer. The PX312 then appears on my computer as a plug-n-play flash drive, no software drivers required. Then I can just copy any audio files off of it and on to my computer. The PX312 stores its audio files in MP3 format, so there are no file conversions involved. In fact, there's no software or drivers needed at all for this gizmo. Sweet!

The Sony website offers a download titled "Sony Sound Organizer for IC Recorder v 1.1" to help you do things like create/move/delete folders on the device. I wouldn't bother. My experience with Sony software and drivers is that it's usually buggy-as-cr@p, so why complicate my computer's environment for such trivial stuff. Any recordings made are found in the Voice/Folder1 folder, and that's all I need to know or do to snag them or erase them.

[The B600 had no computer software, no USB, etc. to support sound transfer. The only option for transferring its recordings was to use the speaker/audio out jack.

I use this recorder for recording class lectures lectures. Works very well even with a low talker(although I would advise sitting up front)since the volume goes up fairly high. As far as my use goes I simply record the lecture and then plug in a pair of headphones to listen on the way home on the train or sometime play it without headphones in the car, and for that it does the job wonderfully. I can't say anything pertaining to computer use. Comes with software, warranty, manual, batteries and usb cord.

Only major thing I wish is that the battery was rechargeable, however I must say it does well on battery life it would just be nicer to just be able to recharge instead of buying new batteries. Also if there was a back light button for the screen just to be able to see in the dark, not a major deal though.

I would recommend this for any college student.

I have never used a digital recorder as such. I've had PDA's and Phones that will do that job but do not do a very good job of it. So I have no frame of reference. I am very pleased. As is typical of me I keep wanting to do things with out reading the instructions. So there is a little of ADD getting in the way. The sound quality even on the low mike setting is remarkable to me. It's very small. I expected it to be much bigger. I love that you have the option to use an external microphone and head set. I've ordered some for it, one omnidirectional and one unidirectional. I'm not sure of my choices. I'm an old ham operator so I only knew about Sure microphones and they were very expensive. I also love that it is digital. One problem I had with the old tape version is that after a while the motors started making noise that was picked up by the recorder.
The only flaws I have found is that there is no option for external power and no LED back-light. In strong light or very dark areas it is hard to read. My normal solution would be to make a shade but you have to have a back-light to do that. I may look into attaching one of those cheap key-chain lights and make a flip up shield. I researched the reviews on this same product but with different sellers and it fared well. For the money this looks like my solution for now. I'll update it later if my opinion changes. I do recommend directional and omni external mics. Another thing I may look into is making some sort of shock/wind cover so that if you have it outside or in your pocked you do not ended up recording that stuff.
Hope this helped.
