I love this recorder! For $50, you cannot find a better value! The clarity is amazing for the price! It has several "scene" settings like meeting, lecture, interview, etc., which adjusts the specs to the best settings for that situation. It has a microSD card which allows for hundreds of hours of recording, even at the finest settings. I love that you can change the display (even during recording) to show the current time of recording length or to the time remaining in memory so you are prepared for how much room you have left to record, although I have never been close. I have used this recorder in small conference room settings and in large courtroom settings, and the clarity of the recording is incredible. In fact, when listening to a recording from a large courtroom, I can often hear better from the recording than I did live, and that is using its own internal mic! I have heard mention of interference from other electronics or cell phones, but I have NEVER had an issue with this recorder, and I place it right next to my computer! The only con I see is that the recorder is light and small and a bit slick, so I added two adhesive non-skid tabs to the bottom so that if someone were to bump it, it wouldn't go crashing to the floor. BEST MONEY I HAVE SPENT!

We purchased several of these for use in classrooms to record student responses. The teachers found it easy to get started and make recordings. It was easy to retrieve the MP3 files off of the device when using it as an attached device (like a flash drive or camera). However, the Sound Organizer software can only be run by an Administrator or Power User; it cannot be run by ordinary users. This is totally unacceptable in our environment.

    • Does not work with MAC

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony ICD-PX312 Digital Voice Recorder:

      I would have chosen something else if I had known that this recorder would not work with a Mac. The CD that came with it did not work. When I came to the website it said that the driver/program did not work for the Mac. False advertising considering it says that it does work. Not that Sony cares. It will just be the only product I purchase of this brand. I have been given Sony products and am ambivalent to them. They work….sometimes.

      I bought this to use to record the headset communications in my airplane to use for teaching and review. It works very well.

      Don't need the software? Great product!

      By OpenCarrier

      from MidWest

      Comments about Sony ICD-PX312 Digital Voice Recorder:

      The two controls I need are the 'record' button, and the 'hold' switch. The 'hold ' switch disables the other buttons so you don't accidentally stop or start recording. The device fits most of the way into the coin pocket on my jeans and can pick up conversations within 10 feet at normal speaking levels. I used Audacity, a free third-party audio editing software, to edit my recordings.

      Comments about Sony ICD-PX312 Digital Voice Recorder:

      Each recording becomes a file. I can download the files on my desktop and give each file a name, so it's easy to find later. Picks up even the soft voice well.

      Nice hardware, unusable software

      By DaChieftain

      from Auckland, NZ

      Comments about Sony ICD-PX312 Digital Voice Recorder:

      A digital voice recorder is the modern replacement for a Dictaphone, -- and this one (ICD-PX312) is a nice one. Looks good, operates intuitively. However, it is virtually useless without the SoundOrganizer software (supplied on CD) which will not install, under any circumstances. Downloading the latest release from the Sony site, similarly, fails to fix: in fact, it generates a whole different suite of problems. And no, I do not have difficulty installing any other forms of software on my machine, ever. (64-bit Windows 7) Did they even test this software? Couldn't have. Sloppy execution renders a really nice hardware product virtually useless. And the support FAQ is no help at all. I'll be returning it today.

      Great product! :D

      Comments about Sony ICD-PX312 Digital Voice Recorder:

      I used to own a previous version of a Sony recorder ICD-BX800 it was lovely, but for that one I couldn't save my sound files on my computer, hence I bought this one, the upgrade was great, so far it has been a reliable product when it comes to recording lectures, interviews and my voice memos. The sound is really great (if used correctly). And this recorder is far more user friendly than the previous one I had :) I really recommend this product!
