You're tempted to get a digital sound recorder but you haven't fully decided if you want to buy one yet. Maybe it's for your studies or work, but you're wondering if it's worth the money. Digital recorders can be a little pricey and this is often why people decide on getting a tape recorder or something cheaper.

However, the cost a digital recorder shouldn't put you off from buying one. The simple fact is that have so many advantages over their lesser and rather dated counterparts. Think about cameras and how much they have evolved. Technology is improving and for the better. So before you decide not to buy a digital sound recorder, here are a lot of reasons to get one.

Ever been to a class or long and boring lecture and ended up day dreaming and missing everything important? Everyone has experienced one of those days. With a digital recorder, you'll never have to. Simply switch it on and day dream all you want, confident that you can find any critical information that you missed on your recorder. Some recorders are even voice activated, meaning you can sit back and let it run and record when there's sound.

Ok, so you could be thinking that a tape recorder has the same functionality. They do, but a digital one can be switched on and start recording in an instant. There's no pause, delay or the need to rewind. What's more, they are silent.

Digital sound recorders have tons of extra features that you simply won't find on an old tape recorder. As well as digital sound recording, you'll get an LCD screen and the ability to expand memory with an SD card. This means you can get hours of recordings onto a tiny memory card. This can be uploaded straight onto your computer ready for editing. Professional digital sound recorders will allow you to do even more, such as record live music without loss of quality. If the price still scares you, just know that you can even pick a decent one up for less than $30. That is not exactly expensive, right?

If you're into small and slim gadgets then go digital. Not only, are they more practical in size but they are light too. You can carry it in your pocket without even knowing it was there. And you'll not need to carry any spare tapes because it's all stored digitally, so no more hunting for blank tapes in your bag.

Now that you know all the benefits, it's probably easier to decide if you're going to buy one or not. Remember that either way, forget about getting a tape recorder, since they are becoming obsolete. If anything, they'll become more expensive since they won't be made anymore.
