Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Having now had the PX333 for over a week, I can give it a fair review. The problem is that if you average the very positive ease of use with the absolutely terrible "manual" (including the online manual) and the almost unreadable screen menus, I might give it a 3 star review. However, by simply playing with it, and making mistakes before I start dictating my book, I've learned what *most* of the functions are for, and may not even need most of them. In other words, I'm going to treat this as I would my 35 year old Dictaphone with micro mini cassettes!
The recorder gets 5 stars for all the basic and actual ease of use (for those things I use). But the three hours I spent trying to find out what the A-B switch was for, how to transfer recordings from the recorder to the micro SD disc (I still don't know the answers to either), how to use the T-Mark and what for, and the micro mini "print" for the display, it was very disappointing. I'm also sorry that I didn't...
I bought it with the hope that being able to add a sd card will add recording size. Oh no boy I was wrong. The product makes automatic folder on the sd card and each folder has a limit on how much you can record. That limit can not be changed. It is so embarrassing that it stops recording while I was in the middle of a very important meeting and I had to borrow sound files from someone else. Just imagine when one is relying on the recording for legal purposes and this thing stabs you on your back. Please don't buy this product.
I bought this to help me with my audio for the videos I make. None of my video cameras have descent microphones so I picked up this Sony digital recorded to get better sound. It worked much better than I expected. The noise reduction limited the background junk. I like to film outside so this helped to stop the birds, cards, lawn mowers and other undesirable sounds. The microphone scooped up my voice nicely without the ruffling of my clothes or insects flying around.
It took a bit to synch the audio to the video but when I did manage to align the two, it came out amazing. This was an inexpensive way to capture good quality sound without needing a mic boom and all that other audio equipment. I was really impressed but have only used this to pick up my voice. I haven't tried it in a crowd or to gather other sounds. There is plenty of memory on the device plus it came with an 8 gig microSD card. Lots of buttons to figure out but at least it came with instructions.
