    Doesn't have USB port

      Comments about Sony ICD-BX022 Digital Voice Recorder:

      Doesn't have USB port so you have to record directly onto a computer using audio cable. Waste of time! Also, it's bulky. I got it because I prefer simplicity, because Sony never fails me anyway, but nothing like the PX- series, even if the newer ones have more features than I need.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony ICD-BX022 Digital Voice Recorder:

          I have an old Cassette Tape Voice Recorder and replaced it with this one, so much better that it can record and leave it 24 hours and play it back anytime. A PC headphones or microphone can be plug into this. This has 3 designated Folder where you can Voice Record in 3 different saved recording which is pretty cool. Fast Forwarding the recording is fast & easy. Highly recommended for your first Voice Recorder.
