      This is a great foot pedal! The software is so user friendly & easy to use. I saw cheaper pedals, but I really like that I was able to just unpack everything and get started transcribing in about 10 minutes. The pedal is definitely Sony quality. I would but this one again in a heartbeat and will recommend to anyone who will listen.

      I needed a plug and play device that came with no operation hassles. But that wasn't the case. Not only could I not get the device to work, nor could the Sony Tech. However, I still love Sony products. And the Tech was first rate. I've got to believe it's the product.

                  My IC recorder was a later version than those listed as compatible with the Digitial Voice Editor 2 that came with this transcriber. However, when I installed the Sound Organizer software for IC recorder then the transcriber worked. It's great for transcribing class lectures.

                    This system with the digital voice recorder I already bought is wonderful. So much easier to use than the old tape transcription system I was using before. I highly recommend going digital and using this system.

                            I use the foot pedal in my research to assist with changing audio interviews into transcripts that I then can analyse qualitatively. The foot pedal speeds up anyone's rate of transcription because it frees up your hands to type while your feet start/stop or rewind the recording. I wish there was some place to send them to for repairs. They are sturdy but they sometimes wear out and I sense that it is simply an electronic switch that needs replacing.

                              I transcribe court hearings. This is my second Digital Voice Recorder. I had one for several years, but the foot petal eventually wore out. This new one is great! Mine is attached to a Digital Voice Editor and it works wonderful.

                              In theory the product appeared to be exactly what I needed for the Digital Voice Recorder that I had purchased. In reality, it wasn't - only because it is not compatible with a Mac computer. The rating shown is really not valid, but I had to enter something. I know of folks who use this product on a PC and they're very pleased with it.

                                        Comments about Sony FS-85USB Footpedal Digital Voice Recorder Transcription Kit:

                                        Easy setup.

                                        Works as advertised, and the first two (this is my third) continue to be reliable with heavy use.

                                        If I ever need more, I will buy this unit.
