An fast, moderate-sized and extraordinarily cheap drive.

Refurbished, but these seem to be in good shape. Don't expect the intel manufacturer's warranty to have much, if any, time left. You're leaning on newegg, and then perhaps your credit card's insurance policy, if it has one.

A stereo microphone just shy of being studio-quality. Very high quality and very highly recommended.

With no drivers needed, this thing has been tested and works on various Linux distributions, Windows XP, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I've also tested it as an audio output device (a "sound card") and it works great.

Digital Voice Recorder 1

http://www.chinabuye.com/4gb-digital-stereo-voice-recorder-dictaphone-mp3-player-1

A basic dictaphone and mp3 player.

It records with horrible static with both its in-built and provided microphone, but its mp3 playback is spectacular. Its utterly shit mp3 interface, slow song switching and no shuffle make it basically useless as a player.

I bought this lower-sized version because it mentioned having a lithium battery. It does not, which pisses me off to no end.

While this works, it is definitely not recommended. Buy something else, even if it costs more.
