Total Recall Digital Voice Recorder
Let's face it, most of us can speak our thoughts faster and clearer than we can write them (I'll try and prove this false in my review!). So the idea of being able to capture my thoughts on a digital voice recorder is appealing. What makes this idea even more appealing, is the ability to tie in the recorder with my Visor and PC.
The Total Recall Digital Voice Recorder from Targus gave me an opportunity to not only record my ideas as I spoke them, but I could also email them to friends, family, and colleagues! The unit ships with 4MB of storage (which results in 1.5 hours of recording time), a 'Plug-In Shuttle', and a Voice Desktop Application to allow the user to transfer recordings to their desktop PC.
Physical SpecificationsThe Total Recall is slightly larger than a standard size module (65 mm x 53 mm x 10 mm) and sticks out the top of the Visor about 10 mm, when inserted in the springboard slot, and about 5 mm out the back. This poses a problem if you are using a case which utilizes the Visor cover to retain the unit. However, as I'll explain later, I personally didn't think this hindered the usefulness of the module.
The top of the module has a microphone flanked by an earphone and microphone jack on either side. The back of the module has a grill design which protects the speaker. On the front of the module there are 4 control buttons (Play/Stop, Skip Forward/FF, Skip Backward/REW, Record) which are hidden when the unit is in the Visor. The top, front, right corner has a red LED which is visible when the module is in the Visor.
