My old Sony ICD P520 digital recorder became "obsolete" with the replacement of my Windows XP desktop computer, forcing me to search for a new ICD recorder. The old Sony was such a reliable device that going with a brand other than Sony was not an option. The search was made on-line at both retail outlets and the Sony web site, for there are some current ICD recorders out there that believe it or not are incompatible with WIndows 8. I almost got the cheaper Sony ICD-PX533 model but decided to pay the extra $30 bucks for the UX533. Ability to connect a microphone/headset combination was critical, and this model has the jacks on top of the unit thereby freeing up my hand to cradle the device without any interference. Using this device in combination with the Dragon Naturally Speaking software turned out to be a breeze, for the voice file saves as a type that is easily recognized by Windows 8 without need for some other software to convert the voice file. Dragon immediately recognized the voice file without need for conversion as well, and the transcription was noticeably with far fewer errors than obtained with the old P520. Sony came through again!

What a disappointment! We went to the store for advice and direction for a system that would replace our old dictaphone and transcribing equipment. The sales person recommended this and some software needed to transfer the voice files and data to our secretary's computers to transcribe and finish. However, the software and the recorder don't communicate. I don't know if the sales person just didn't know the products or if the products aren't compatible. The box listed the recorder as compatible, but after hours and hours of setup, reading to the recorder (to identify my voice), and trying to transfer, it just does absolutely nothing. Very disappointing.

Comments about Sony ICD-UX533 Digital Voice Recorder:

I own many Sony products and this is a newer version of recorder than I previously used. and the first digital recorder. I have not used it often as yet but I am very satisfied with what I see thus far.

I bought this for work meetings. I needed something reliable, simple to operate and unobtrusive. And with the ability to easily burn a recording to a CD. Perfect.

Amazing!

By NL7XM

Comments about Sony ICD-UX533 Digital Voice Recorder:

Tiny, unobtrusive, and nondescript device is incredibly sensitive. Captured every word in a large crowded Board room meeting. Built-in software downloads to PC via USB and provides a powerful audio editing suite to customize my recording, and file sharing with others via email.
This product is worthy of the Sony label, and delivers stereo quality sound you'd expect from them.
Best purchase in a long time!
