Excellent recording quality & utility ( 4.5 stars)
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) This device is lightweight and sensitive. I bought it for recording memos to myself while driving, and for recording meetings & lectures. Amazing recording quality from such a small device - even when in my pocket. It does take a little reading and tinkering to get used to the various recording modes - trade off highest quality stereo for longer record times, and for ...

The Sony ICD-MX20 Recorder is a great little unit
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) The Sony ICD-MX20 is an amazing little stereo recorder. It is well worth the money if you understand recording devises and can handle more complex type devices. The sound quality is very good, 60 to 17,500 Hz. FILE STRUCTURE: The proprietary file compression process Sony has is nothing short of fantastic. It is hard to understand how they can squeeze so much into such a s...

The Best--Give it 10 stars
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) I'm a professional writer and bought this recorder to use with Dragon Naturally Speaking V.9. I tried using an Olympus recorder with V.7 of the software and it didn't work well, even though dictating directly into my computer via a microphone worked great. The first time I used this Sony with Dragon it transcribed with about 99-percent accuracy. I tried it in a room with back...

Solutions to inaccurate reviews.
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) This "review" is primarily to clear up some inaaccuracies I have read in many reviews for this recorder. First, you can turn off this recorder without removing the batteries. Second, Digital Voice Editor Software IS available!!!Turning Off the Sony ICD-MX20:Flip the hold switch on the back of the recorder -> wait -> the display will turn off. Further, even with t...

Excellent sound quality. Questionable unit finish. Good software. Poor documentation.
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) I purchased this unit because Nuance, the publishers of Dragon Naturally Speaking 9 gave it higher marks than the Olympus DS-2 I already own. My review of Dragon Naturally Speaking 9 appears elsewhwere. Suffice it to say that the software is superb with nearly 100% accurate voice recognition. My dream has been to be able transcribe dictation from a recorder to a finished document.<...

Professional Recording Quality
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) In short.-Things I don't like:-Proprietary codec. Not universal format (like say mp3)-Not (standard) UMS-No Macintosh version of the companion software (but Virtual-PC OK)-The included pouch is awfulBUT. . . I do like:-Unlimited recording size. The recorder uses a built in 32 MB FLASH as well as removable MEMORY STI...

Good for Voice Recognition; Ergonomics Need Improvement
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) Having used voice recorders daily for 20 years, I always find Olympus brands to be more sturdy, ergonomic, reliable and have better warranty policies and service. The reason to buy this Sony was better voice recognition with Dragon Naturally Speaking and ease of transfer files to computer. Controls in this unit are not very intuitively placed although not so bad that they are...

Spendy but good quality
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) It is pretty expensive for a digital voice recorder.The quality is good, though.I put 256mb memory stick (pro duo) and I can record 11 hours of lectures with the highest quality sound, which is very impressive.One small thing I don't like is that it takes several seconds to erase a file, which is annoying when you are trying to erase a number of files.Also, I coul...

No MP3 support but very high quality device
 
This review is from: Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder (Electronics) I was mislead with Amazon review which said it supports conversion to MP3 format with the software supplied, it does not. The help quite clearly states "You cannot convert a file into an MP3 file". It will convert to .wav then you can use a 3rd party program to go to MP3.If it had MP3 support (at least conversion on the PC from the Sony proprietary format which is .msv) I wou...
