Hi. I am not sure if this is the best forum index to post this in, if their be a better one please inform me.

I was looking for a digital voice recorder, but I really don't know what to buy.
I see here, http://tinyurl.com/33g2d9 are some, and they are expensive in price, and, I am not even sure if they are that good. I can even look at MP3 players that have more available space, obviously more options, and even lower price, like this one http://tinyurl.com/2mfao5. It promises,

Would it be better to buy the 2gig mp3 player?I am unsure if the designated sound recorders cost is also cause of the fact they have a built in speaker, still I am clueless. Or should I shop local stores for a voice recorder. I'm recording voices so, also room size wont be gigantically large, maybe 25-40 students in a class. I don't have many idea's so if anybody could help me out.

Thanks in Advance

I used to record all my classes on MiniDisc (with MDLP).

If I was buying a new recorder for class now, here's the main things I'd look for:


1. Removable media - Compact Flash, SD, something, just don't get it built in.

2. Removable battery - Nothing worse then putting up with a battery that over the course of the semester holds less and less of a charge. Make sure you pick up a spare battery if the unit you buy can't use off-the-shelf NiMH AA's.

Optional stuff:

3. External Microphone/Line input jack - These you'll probably find on the more expensive units, and very handy if you need to do some professional recording (ie- your friend the music major needs to make a performance CD).

4. VU Meters or Overload LED - Nothing worse then recording a class and hearing all kinds of crazy distortion when you go to play it back later. Some units (especially Sony) have built in limiters you can enable to prevent this.
