Sony ICD BX800
Advantages: Lots! Simple to use, good quality recording.
Disadvantages: Can't download recordings to computer.
The Sony ICD BX800 dictaphone is a basic digital dictaphone available for around £30. The technical details are available for all to see by clicking on the "technical details" tab, and as that kind of thing isn't my forte, I'll focus on my opinion of this dictaphone rather that what it does!
My boyfriend and I have used this dictaphone mainly for recording notes, for exam revision. It is very easy to use - completely intuitive and no need for reading the instruction manual. You can see from the picture that buttons are laid out clearly and aren't too small.
Apart from being really simple to use and doing a great job, I really like the fact that this dictaphone is lightweight and has over 500 hours of recording space. It is also great value for money and the battery life is good. Sound quality is good whether played back through the built in speaker of headphones. The hold function is good so you don't accidentally start recording when it's in your bag/pocket.
Recordings can't be downloaded to a computer, but I didn't need this function anyway.
I've given this product 5 stars because I think for the price it is excellent quality.
Summary: A great value dictaphone.
