As a songwriter/general idea person -- one with a terrible memory -- this was a great little machine. Simple (I don't need multiple folders or shuffle play) and really small. However, like all the VoiceIt models, it has one major flaw, and that is that the buttons protrude -- they stick out. This means that keys in your pocket or the side of a desk you lean against can press the "play" button, and it's very embarrassing when your pocket starts talking! Worse, on more than one occasion, the "erase all" button was pressed and I lost everything. It doesn't take a genius to see this is a bad design, but these guys turned out several models with the same problems. I recommend against any brand that has a protruding "erase" button.

Almost two years ago I wrote a review on the VT300. I recently bought another (I'm sold on these great thought catchers) and found that VXI has moved to a AAA battery. A significant (and cheeper) advance over the four CR-2025 lithium batteries!
Like most harried Americans I have a life on the run. I find myself always in need of a scrap of paper and a pen to jot down fleeing thoughts. "Voice It" has helped simplified my beleaguered world by giving me the quick ability to capture my retreating memories.
The VT300 is a solid performer, and the battery life has improved significantly over the first VXI models. The sound quality is better, its playback volume (though not adjustable) is sufficient and the microphone sensitivity is appropriate.
I like the layout of the buttons. They are tactical and easily felt when driving or in the dark of night. I often leave my VT300 by my bed side where I can reach pick it up and capture my last thought before sleep. I also found the "Voice It" to be a great device for recording your dreams in the middle of the night.
I found the recorder to be most durable. I have sat on it, dropped it and spit coffee on it yet like the bunny, it runs and runs.
I commend buying "Voice It 300", over the VT90, as the difference in price is slight ([amt]). For those, like me, with porous memories, this very small, easy to use, pocket recorder will be continually used. Highly Recommended

I, too, upgraded from the VT-90 to the VT-300 for the extra time capacity. I also prefer not having to shop for foolish watch battery sizes. Standard AAA's are MUCH easier to find and last a lot longer. A volume control would be nice, since playback is loud, and that sucks battery life fast! Talking quieter into the unit improves the loudness, but fidelity fades along with it.
BUT -- my biggest gripe is the cheap buttons. They gradually deteriorated over time, either failing to connect or bouncing (start-and-stop recording immediately), missing the recording repeatedly. Now, I can't even get it to operate 1 time out of 30 button presses.
The BEST feature is how compact it is. Nobody else has one that even comes close in size. Too bad they didn't design a better keypad.

I up graded to the VT300 from a "Voice It" VT90. The extended recording time was the main reason. Like most harried Americans I have a life on the run. I find myself always in need of a scrap of paper and a pen to jot down fleeing thoughts. "Voice It" has helped simplified my beleaguered world by giving me the quick ability to capture my retreating memories. Now, when I have a `brain burp', and need to remember that which I will undoubtable forget, I just grab this little black device, punch record, and retain that brilliant thought that will bring forth the next great invention for our generation - like "buy T.P.."

This little gadget is about as useful as can be. Small enough to carry all the time; long life battery, long message lengths, digital design w/no moving parts. They finally put in a battery (1 AAA) you can find anywhere, eliminating the one pain previous models had...an impossible to find AAAA battery. If you hate written notes all over the place, can't stand to carry today's 'fashion' bulky planners, then this is the item for you. Well worth the small investment, and would earn 5 stars except for the limited places of purchase nation-wide.

I was given a VT 300 for Christmas. After some 20 - 25 short messages and 5 months later the unit failed to respond. I tried replacing the batteries ( 5 times with brand new Duracells) but to no avail. Upon calling VXI, the customer rep told me to initialize the unit, again to no avail. She further told me since the unit was older than 3 months she could do nothing. And NOTHING VXI did! Well a 3 - 5 month performance for the price IS NOT good for me. VXI keep your indifferent attitudes, your clearly inferior products and my money. Good bye!
