An E-book reader.

Because this is my first e-reader, I can't judge it against it's peers. It works well.

It is spectacular hardware-wise. Its software works, but it is sometimes obviously or even critically lacking. It lacking a file browser and respecting directories is bad enough that I can't really use it for its intended purpose, and almost regret buying it.

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

https://web.archive.org/web/20160713200105/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.
