It is small. Fits nice in your hand or pocket.
I am illiterate when it comes to electronic equipment. If I can figure this one out, so can you. It's very easy to use.
It has a USB port. Hook this recorder right up to your computer to download audio. Doesn't get any easier.
The most important thing about this awesome recorder is the sound is crystal clear. I can set it on a table when doing an interview and it will pick up everyone in the room. There is a noise reduction button if you wish to use it.
The 2 AAA batteries last a long time giving you 72 hours of recording time. I haven't changed the batteries since I bought it! That was over a year ago!
It has 2G of internal memory which equals about 530 hours recording time. Wow! It also holds a memory card but I can't imagine you would need it.
There is a hole for a lanyard. Hang this over your neck for hands free recording. We carry so much equipment on investigations. This is a handy feature. Lanyard is not included.
I wouldn't even use the software that is included. Download Audacity or Wavepad for free.
I don't have one bad thing to say about the Sony audio recorder. I give it 5 spirits.
