Sony's ICD-ST10 slim, portable digital voice recorder offers a wealth of features and the kind of flexibility only possible in the realm of digital audio. The recorder offers up to 5.5 hours of recording time and a choice of either mono or stereo recording. USB compatibility ensures a fast transfer rate, and you'll enjoy the convenience of five separate message files for dictation.
The system is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98 to XP as well as with the Dragon Naturally Speaking preferred voice-to-print software for converting your voice files into text (version 6.0, sold separately). Digital pitch/playback speed control lets you play recordings at slower or faster than normal speeds to facilitate transcribing or editing, and the recorder's LPEC Codec uses a 16 kHz sampling rate for extended frequency response (with audio up to 8 kHz) to deliver excellent recorded sound.
Incremental rewind (easy search) is the equivalent of tape fast rewind but without returning all the way to the beginning of each recording, to help you locate specific passages within files. Advanced digital VOR (voice-operated recording) stops the recording during silent pauses--saving recording time--then begins recording again without missing a single syllable.
Other features include a full-function LCD, one-button play from record, a built-in directional microphone (which rejects noise from off-axis points and offers high/low mic sensitivity), a built-in playback speaker, an add-recording function, a battery-strength LED, a battery-saving hold switch, and jacks for an external earphone and an external microphone.
What's in the Box
Voice recorder, PC download software, two AAA batteries, a carrying case, an earphone (MDR-ED228LP), a USB cable (RK-G136), and a user's manual.

I like using it to capture the grandkids when they don't know I'm recording. making memories to last a lifetime. I'm somewhat a geek when it comes to technology I love new products and I loved this the day I got it. I uploaded the software into my Sony Laptop PCG-FR130 and plugged in the USB cable and opened the program and there were the recordings nice and neat in folders. I copied them to my hard drive by pick and place then converted them to wav files so I can use them in other programs that don't recognize the Sony files. Seems easy to me but could be difficult for some casual user that doesn't want to figure this stuff out. the time is short for recording in ST mode but I don't need 5 hours anyway just some short memories and then transfer them.
I realize the recorder is no longer in production and Sony doesn't appear to support it but, if you find it available somewhere at a good price I would recommend it.
Pros: Small, batteries last a long time, fits my hand, adjustable mic for directional use, has 5 folders for different recordings, date and time display so you know when you recorded it.
Cons: Yeah some buttons are not too clear as to there function. but, you have a manual to refresh your memory. Most you won't use anyway. Would have been nice to have a removable memory. an external mic plug would be nice but think of it as the external mic.
2009 add to review---
Vista adds a new problem to the recorder. I loaded my software into the laptop with Vista and it crashed the program. I went to the sony site and could not find a Vista upgrade. I emailed them and they responded right away. There is no Vista support for this recorder. it is no longer supported. Sad but true.
A word of caution about Dragon Naturally speaking; it takes about 10 hours over two weeks to get productive with high accuracy in Dragon. I read books, went to talks, and took training for Dragon. Dragon Naturallyspeaking dosn't work right out of the box -- you and Dragon need training to get along. I found the Dragon training cd's from Say I Can very helpful.
Once you've mastered the Dragon, you will only need to touch the keyboard and mouse a few times a day while using your computer -- you'll be moving around and typing into most applications with your voice. I'm using Dragon with various versions of Windows, not sure how it works on the Mac.
I am able to fit only one lecture (1.5 hours) before I have to transfer the file onto the computer (I record in SP mode).
More memory & a power cord (has a power plug but cord is not provided with the recorder) would definitely make this a 5 star product.
Con: There is no OFF button on the recorder and in the month I've owned it, it has turned itself on during the worst moments (like taking an exam in a hushed lecture hall).
The sound quality is pretty good - except it does not give full dynamic playback quality through the units small speaker - but I imaging hooking it up to a stereo would do wonders.
The biggest suprise of all was how SMALL this is.
The only negative I have experienced is when you put the unit into its leather case- it is easy to accidently press a button and playing back stuff when you don't want it to.
