Pros: An excellent, very capable voice recorder. Easy to use.
The recording quality is extraordinary. I have recorded while walking along a street with considerable traffic, the recording quality is so high, the voice transcription software had no problem with it.
Cons: The folder/file manipulation on the device is cumbersome.
For voice dictation, it would be useful to have a function to back up, play, and optionally record over. This would allow discarding mistakes during recording. I really miss this feature from microcassette recorders.
The suggested battery charging/discharging should be handled by the device firmware, not manually.
The basic operation of recording in one mode works very well, but using advanced features is very cumbersome. However, most advanced features aren't needed, so this does not matter as much as it might.
Other Thoughts: I only use the PCM recording formats, the recording time is sufficient, and the recording quality is very high. The recorder is good enough that the voice recognition software can clearly pick out someone talking in the background, so avoid dictating with talking in the background.
