I bought this for my daughter who's taking Organic Chemistry from a professor whose lectures ramble all over the place. She records his lectures then listens to it again where she can rewind, take detailed notes, and really sort it out. She LOVES it and so do her classmates who have asked that she send them the digital audio file as well. She can save it on her computer, burn it to a CD, listen to it in her car. Perfect for learning a tough subject! The device works great, picks up the audio wonderfully and is small enough to not be intrusive. I am VERY pleased with this purchase!

I had one of these for over two years then I lost it while in the woods. All of the features matched my needs. The ability to store music, podcast, and make my own voice recordings made it a one-device does all for me. You can set date/time on recordings (music or voice recording) to play as an alarm so I wake up to a different song each day of the week. The sound quality is excellent and when you use Sony's Sound Organizer you can easily set-up podcast downloads, move music and recordings to/from your PC. Anyway, I lost one of these and I looked for it for a month or two and I just couldn't stand being without it so I bought this replacement. I didn't rate it at 5 stars because the display isn't back-lit. Everything is great on this device except you can't see the screen in low light without you flashlight or something. Some folks say the menus are complicated but I disagree. The right-left button scrolls through the top level menu and then there is a choice for "Details" to take you to a second level. A different list of menu items may appear if you are in playback or record mode. It wasn't long for me to get familiar with how it works. Oh and the batteries...I have left it running all night in the woods to "listen" for game sounds. I retrieve it and review the recording in Sound Organizer for peaks in the sound graph. I can do this three nights on one pair of batteries. It's very efficient with energy consumption. It can go 16-20 hours easy on a battery and records.

Another cool thing about this device is it has an external speaker so you can chose to use ear phones or just playback through the speaker. It also has a mic-in jack so you can add one of those ear piece microphones and record meetings or conference calls for later use to take notes. All in all, I have been very pleased with this device and my 15 year-old son has bought one and is using it to keep all of his music on now...and he has iPhone and other devices but he likes this thing better.

--and by "all," I mean it records things. I didn't give it 5 stars because it doesn't have a built-in laser pointer (kidding). I drive 40 minutes to/from class every day, so I have ample time to listen to it while nothin' else is going on.

Only downsides: If you put a sufficiently large memory piece into the unit, it takes forever to start up. I just left it out and use internal memory. In addition, when you try to delete something, it actually plays it while it's asking you if you really want to delete it. It's a bit distracting and annoying if you're in-class while you're attempting to delete something. If I wanted it to play, I'd have played it before deleting it. It's not that many more button-presses.

I'm always in the front row and recording quality is fantastic. I don't have to "really listen" to make out what the instructor is saying. It's just on the recording.

Works well so far. Conducted interview and sound was excellent. Wish I didn't need instructions, but it's not too complicated. Also can connect to computer with USB cable included and uses normal batteries.

I had the ICD PX-312, which was damaged by battery leak, I have bought this one. High quality voice recorder, and easy to use.

I purchased this device to record lectures at school. It's really easy to use. Navigation is simple. Quality of recording is satisfying me (I'm using only build-in microphone). Would recommend this product.

I'm a creative writer that doesn't want to get up, and turn the lights on everytime an idea strikes at night. This solved that problem completely. Now I can talk notes at night, work, or in the car without a problem. The buttons are big enough to use by feel. I take it with me everywhere.

Only down side; I wish it came with a case. The screen is easy to scratch up in your pockets.

We are so thrilled with this purchase. It is a fantastic voice recorder.
It is very clear and must have an excellent mic because it picks up the voices from across the room very well.
Great product.

After using this recorder for a number of months successfully, recently its memory malfunctioned, saying “memory full” even though there are no files stored on recorder. Thus, the erase function was of no use since the recorder did not recognize any files stored. A fix for this problem was found on fixya:

Sony needs to have better troubleshooting resources on their website for such problems.

I had been going to Poetry Open Mics and from time to time I would wish that I could go back and listen to some of the stuff that I had heard. As a writer of poetry and short stories, ideals would come to mind and I got tired of carrying pen & paper around, with the pen not working at times. I was in a store looking around and saw a digital voice recorder and realized that it would be easier to do. I did some looking around both in stores and online.
What I liked about this is that I would be able to move the files onto my computer through a USB cable. I looked at more expensive ones, but choose to buy this one as it would be my first and if I wasn't happy with it I wouldn't feel so bad at what I spent.
I have gotten away from the pen & paper and use this with love. Not only have I recorded Open Mics, but sermons in church, thoughts that have come to mind, conversations with people and so much more. Even though it took me a bit to figure out how to do things, once I did I have enjoyed using it. ... The only problems that I have with it is that the screen and controls aren't backlit, and the menu is hard to read because of the size....
