Innoheim liteRecorder 1.1
- Save audio in MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG formats
- Third-party plug-in needed to create MP3s
liteRecorder is a worthwhile purchase only for those who value ease of use and quality of capture over, well, value. But at $14, it's hardly bank-breaking.
Price$ 14.00 (AUD)
LiteRecorder 1.1 allows you to record audio from your PC and output to MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG.
Or rather it does, but only once you've downloaded and installed the LAME MP3 encoder. Paying for software and then having to install a third-party tool isn't something we like—especially when the site liteRecorder pointed us toward sent Site Advisor spinning.
liteRecorder claws back some credibility in two areas —ease of setup and quality of capture. Its setup wizard detects your PC's sound card to maximise recording quality. And it makes a cool submarine noise while it's doing so.
You can capture audio generated by your PC, or via a line-in. You can do the latter with a free tool such as Audacity, enjoy greater editing options and still capture PC audio (if you run a line out into your line in). But you wouldn't get the ease of use that, for around $14, liteRecorder provides. And the additional stage in the capture process affects the quality of the recording.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
