CDRKing ET-688 voice recorder

I overreacted because there was no charger with the device:
You are warned NOT to fall for this device!
The size has both advantages and disadvantages: Easy to carry on you pocket but is damn easy to lose or misplace!

It advertises itself loudly with the following specs on its package box.

  • Built-in Large-capacity storage, to use as mobile Hard disk (512M/1G/2G).
  • 3 audio file direction (A, B, C) to record massive audio information.
  • Play music in various formats (such as MP3, WAV).
  • Voice-control function (VOX) 2 recording formats (SP and LP);
  • Cycle mode: Nor (not cycle) One (single cycle) all (all cycle).
  • 5 play balance modes: Natural, DBB, Jazz, Disco and Classic
  • Repeat mode (A-B): Replay a certain section of sound file.
  • Following read & compare: at MP# play mode.
  • Check remainning record time.
  • Delete: Delete single MP# music file and audion file, or all filse in current time.
  • Telephone recording
  • 32-level volume adjustment
  • High-speed USB 2.0 connection, to facilitate rapid uploading/downloading.
  • Built-in loudspeaker.
  • Low power alerting
  • FM radio
  • Built in rechargeable battery
The most important things are left off as optional devices, but I don't know if they are available. I need to come back Thursday. This for a price of 1780 pesos.

Mar 30. The device can be recharged using the supplied usb cable. Sorry for the noise. I now change the NOT to buy recommendation to BUY.However if the battery does run down and cannot be recharged anymore, you are out of luck.

There is a cheaper model for around 1,600 pesos with separate AAA batteries. Buy this one if you are a pessimist.

  1. Hi!

    I have a few questions about the device:

    1. Can it record loud and clear when the recorder is in the middle of a table, let's say in a meeting?

    2. Based on your opinion on quality, is it something that will not last for years?

    3. Where did you buy your unit? I've been looking everywhere for the recorder but they all say it's out of stock.

    My only requirements are it should be able to record conversations in meetings so that statements and assertions made cannot be refuted, and it will last for at least a year.
