  • If only the recording quality was better

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Looks really unsuspicious.
    Flip a switch to record, easy.
    Recording can be easily copied to a PC and used (32kbps WAV-file).

    Cons:

    I use Win7 and had to format the stick before I could use it. To my surprise it formatted only to 960MB (should be 2GB).
    Recordings have a permanent clicking / hum, like the micro is placed too near other components in the stick that either move or create a magnetic field.
    Records only 3 hours max., regardless how long I charge the stick (e.g. 12 hours).

    OtherThoughts:

    The 960MB don't bother me, the max filesize I get is 3 hours = ca 40MB.
    The micro isn't very sensitive, but that is to be expected, however the clicking makes the recordings almost useless.
    I would pay much more for this if the micro, compression (say 64kbps or flexible) and battery were better.

    Bottomline:

    Let's hope for a "professional" version 2.0 of this toy, the general idea is just too good.
