      Comments about Pyle Pro PPR80 Linear PCM Portable Digital Audio Recorder:

      I bought this because I wanted to do some quality voice recording. Something "ideal for musicians" should qualify. I would also expect a digital recorder to have minimal white noise. An old cassette recorder has less hiss than this unit! I tried with 2 different microphones as well as the built in and all returned unacceptable white noise. Problem 2, while it doesn't pick up speech clearly from about 6 feet it does pick up every bump (even moving your fingers when hand-holding) so using for meetings or lectures is definitely out. To make matters even worse, the design doesn't allow you to stand the unit up, it has to lay flat thus picking up paper shuffling, coffee cups being picked up and set down and other table noise in meetings while not picking up clear speech.

      From my experience, this product is not suitable for any type of recording and is too expensive to be a toy.

      I use it in our business meetings and then send a copy to all the participants so that they can follow up effectively. It is really amazing and saves a lot of paper and errors.A good tool to record during seminars.

        Comments about Pyle Pro PPR80 Linear PCM Portable Digital Audio Recorder:

        The instruction booklet isn't as thorough as I'm used to, probably due to the fact that English is clearly not the first language of whoever authored it, but I managed to figure out all the features. The audio quality is pretty good on the built in stereo mic, but I'll be primarily using it to record a feed from my own mic. A surprising, though useless, feature is that it can be used as an mp3 player, when music files are uploaded to the SD card.

          Comments about Pyle Pro PPR80 Linear PCM Portable Digital Audio Recorder:

          I use this recorder to record church services.
          It captures full spectrum sound using any of the source inputs.
          This little recorder functions fully as advertised with a 16G SD card.
          My only complaint is that my Mac Pro running OS 10.7 will not recognize it on a USB port. So I plug the SD card into a card reader to download my files. also I must remember to reset the calendar and clock when I changed batteries.
          Overall I give it four stars.
