Sony PCM D-50 will not turn on.Published on 07/11/16 at 15:40
Can't find any pros for this product as it will not turn on now. Used it for 3 years and it slowly had problems turning on. I have seen other reviews, on other boards, and it seems at least 100 people have had exactly the same problem. All Sony will say is, send in for repair, this would mean sending it to Toronto and I understand cost is prohibitive. Most likely they change to a board that they have fixed the problem and they make another $350.00 !!!!
I will never buy Sony again. The Tascam looks as good and at 1/2 price.

Micro side, there can be made a less flattering than a H4N but a much higher precision that gives a lot of flexibility to mix.
Even without balanced inputs, microphone preamps are well above those of H4. This recorder has a rather exceptional signal to noise ratio for the price. (Just to make gaff mobile phones too close during a capture).
His only serious competitor now remains in my opinion the Olympus LS100 which can be made a more "musical".
For cons, I bought this PCM D50 recorder troubleshooting following the spontaneous stop at the end of filming (hopefully) a Fostex FR2 ...! ! ! And there is more in the same class! Repairs amounted to the price of a new PCM D50! ! ! (After I have never had as good a Fostex FR2 recorder that but I think I will take that as Sony even without problem if there actually has bug on some devices, for what cashed mine ; it will anyway).
Interesting point; with good batteries, PCM D50 takes more than 12 hours recording with 4 AA NIMH! ! ! (Against just 3 hours with 8AA for FR2!!)
In short, if you are disgusted with Sony, it might be worse with others more expensive
