"Dissapointing"2.5 starson by brywool
Pros: Easy to use, small
Cons: recordings "skip"
Summary: I'm not sure what the deal is, but on the surface, this looks like a great little piece of hardware. The recording quality is pretty decent, however, there some things that make this NOT a good piece of gear. As others have mentioned, you can hear the iPod hard drive clicking. Okay, I can get over that.
What I CANNOT DEAL WITH is that my recordings 'skip'. I use it to record music lessons and lectures. When I listen back to the recordings, there are gaps or places where the recording jumps ahead a few seconds. So to record an hour lecture is going to actually give you about 55:00 because of missing audio.It looks like every 20 seconds or so, it skips. Frustrating as anything. I THOUGHT this might be the AutoGain "feature" but the gaps happen even when the input is low volume and also when the Autogain switch is moved to the off position as well as the on position. It has really made this item useless for what I want to use it for.
