  • Only 3 words are allowed.
Cons

Does NOT record data natively as MP3 (files must be converted with the included software).

2 agree

Only Windows compatible and even then it requires special software for file transfer rather than drag-and-drop use.

2 agree

Nothing covers the USB port, making it more vulnerable to damage.

1 agrees

LP setting makes audio extremely warbled, metallic and unintelligible, making it almost useless.

1 agrees

software download is large and annoying

1 agrees

no external memory expansion options (also means you must connect the device to attain your recordings)
