A solid, practical and easy to use digital dictaphone. There have been many good reviews on this model from Philips and for a little extra you can order this device with a copy of Dragon Dictate. Some great specifications are: Large LCD screen, one touch record - even from the device being off, lock switch, so that the device does not switch off in the middle of a meeting, timer to start recording automatically at a certain time and 1Gb storage to mention a few. The price is not at all bad at R750.00 excluding VAT, and available from PowerHouse Dictation Systems. Maybe we can get a unit to test for a future issue.
