A Good All Purpose Voice Recorder
 
I purchased the Sony ICDUX80 Digital Voice Recorder mainly to do voice-over work for the videos I make for YouTube. My computer's built-in mic pics up the noise from the on-board fan, etc. so I decided to get a compact voice recorder.The SONY was pretty much what I was looking for as far as features and price... plus I have always had great success with SONY equipment. Here are some of mike Pros & Cons:PROS: Small, compact and easy to carry in a shirt pocket. Good Amazon ...

A Great Step . . .
 
The ICD-UX80 I have is great. The others have mentioned recording quality. It records at 192kbps in top quality. The mics work fine for me, except in the wind . . .The drawbacks, though:1) the buttons get pressed easily while in my bag. This records bag noise for hours . . . or plays nothing for hours . . . Either way, it does run the battery down often requiring a reset of the date and time when a new battery is installed. (You do have time to change batteries normally without...

Buy it, you'll like it
 
I bought this device primarily for use with Dragon Naturally Speaking Nine Preferred, with which it works quite well.I was pleasantly surprised, no, make that astounded, at how well it records live music.The only shortcoming I've found is that battery life isn't nearly as long as advertised, but I would have bought it anyway had I known.It's hard to believe that something this small could produce such big results.

Check SONY STYLE ICD-UX80
 
As I said below the ICDUX80 is discontinued by Sony. They have an improved model ICDUX81 which has better battery life and added functions.Model ICDUX81F has FM Tuner as well. Check these new Models before going for the older model.I wanted stereo MP3 recorder for recording live music and recording my own practice music when I am playing myself. It records very well with internal microphones. Recording is slightly better for low frequencies if I record with external stereo microphone...

great all purpose recorder (UX 70)
 
I practice law and had tried digital recording with the older Olympus DSS 30. I liked digital but it really was not versatile enough (format, etc). I relied mainly on mini-cassette dictation but needed a better system without spending 300-400 + on a system. I also use "Dragon Naturally Speaking" and after some research decided to try the Sony UX 70 (a lighter version of the UX 80). What I discovered was that MP3 based dictation answered all of my needs - dictation, conference recording, hear...

The First Pocket-Sized mp3 Recorder Suitable for Live Music
 
This remarkable little mp3 recorder is by no means just a voice recorder--it makes excellent, high-quality recordings of live music--an absolute first for any device this small. The built-in stereo mics are not bad for what they are, but when I plugged in my little SONY electret condenser mic I produced recordings of essentially the same quality as I got with my very much larger and very cheesily-made EDIROL R1 PRO at 3 times the price.

Excellent for Recording Classes or Meetings
 
This Sony recorder is what I had been hoping for. I use it for recording my evening classes, two hours at a shot. The format is .mp3, so that Windows Media Player immediately starts playback with a mouse click, with no format conversion. The built-in USB connection makes it seem like a flash drive. The stereo sound is excellent. It uses a single AAA battery, rechargeable in my case. The control buttons are spread out, not "multi-tasked". The display is small, but still easy to interpret. ...

Does NOT Charge Battery (and Lousy User Interface)
 
Contrary to the information in the user's manual on Sony's website as of this writing, the device does NOT charge rechargeable batteries through the USB connection. Apparently, this feature has been disabled; the user's manual supplied with the unit has had all mention of recharging deleted. So you are stuck either replacing batteries frequently or using an external charger (the non-rechargeable AAA battery supplied by Sony lasted about two weeks with very little use).If you plan to ...

Poor battery life
 
This otherwise terrific product claims to be able to record 56 hours. Trouble is, the battery life is good for only a tiny fraction of that. And that's the big problem. It seems that every time I go to use the thing, the battery is dead.

Not so great
 
I purchased this unit because I wanted to be able to record class lectures in mp3 format and be able to burn discs to share class notes with others if necessary. I was disappointed with the cheap construction of the unit and the inability to play back recorded segments without a headset. Yes, the recordings can be burned to disc, but you have to go on faith that the recordings have actually been made in the first place. Unfortunately, there is a lot of noise --if you touch the recorder during th...
