    Work Essential!

    Posted by Doug Malone on Sep 19th 2023

    I use this recorder for my work as a legal transcriptionist. The built-in WiFi is a lifesaver because it lets me quickly send my audio files for transcription without any hassle. The audio quality is great as well. It captures every detail, even in noisy environments. Plus, it's super user-friendly. I can easily navigate through recordings and make quick edits. Battery life is impressive too. It lasts through my long workdays without a hitch. And the device itself feels durable, which is crucial for something I use daily.
