I returned my Tascam thing ($200) because frankly, I needed the money to buy a part for the car.
Yesterday, after a decent swap meet, I stopped by Wal-Mart to stock up on stuff, and saw this neato little Sony ICD-PX820 recorder ($60). These are used normally to record meetings, lectures, things like that. I got it to record myself. It'll hold 22 hours even at the highest quality setting, has a USB cable so I can save files on my computer, and the reviews say the sound quality is quite good.
It sounds good enough for me!
Anyone else using these little recorders?
