Rated 5 out of 5 by SaraA Good recording, but not for the ham fisted, or those with small ears!
I purchased this for work, to record meetings and assist with minute taking. I use it with the supplied microphone and it copes well, recording speech clearly from all around the boardroom table. The microphone and its long lead allows me to keep the unit beside me so I can add index marks, rather than having to leave it in the middle of the table (and so out of reach to do this).
I love that it has a USB charger, and so no faffing about with batteries, and the easily understandable file system that allows me to record different types of meetings in different locations. It is a very neat unit,and slips into pocket or bag nicely.
I'm not allowed to upload files on to work pc, so am stuck with fiddling with the buttons. I do have a problem with the back/forward buttons when listening to recording when typing up minutes - being pudgy fingered, they aren't 'positive' enough for me and I end up back at the beginning of the recording over and over again, unless I'm very careful.
The hard, round earphones that came with the unit don't fit in my wee ears, so I had to purchase another type of earphone with soft rubber inserts. It would be better if the unit came with this type earphone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by none I have found this product hard to use for college and lectures, as there are no recommended settings for recordings
I have found that this product is hard to set up for lectures and that there are no recommended settings to use or guidance to show which settings to amend to provide a better quality recording.
If you have recommended user notes, then I would welcome them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheViewer First-Rate Device
Without aa doubt this is the best recording device on the market. It is extremely functional. There are 4 recording folders and a also a separate folder for music. In making this devise Philips seems to have thought of everything. I have been so impressed with the device that I have two of them; and I have given them as gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perugino47 Has good clarity of sound.
I needed a recorder for capturing thoughts while on the go, or just thinking out loud while doing yard work so I could transcribe my thoughts later.( I was carrying little notebooks around with me.)
This fills the bill. I can put the tracer in my pocket, with the function keys locked and have the microphone attached to my collar. Great for thinking out loud or rehearsing talks while on the go.
Very dependable, easy to use. I would recommend this to a friend. Only flaw; Body seems to be a chrome colored plastic and after a short while the finish has rubbed off in places. It would be better if they made it out of brushed aluminum--especially at this price.
