I bought this to tape record mostly with and it has a lot more uses than I projected it's use for. I wanted a recorder that I can run through my desktop and keep the recording because I may use this in an upcoming lawsuit I am involved in. It is has real good instructions with it and all the attachables too. I've not had it that long to know all of it's functions yet but so far so good. I would recommend this to anyone who has a need for a mini recorder.
