What every best has:
Not everyone is unhappy with the My Lil' Reminder voice recorder, however. Several users report that they find My Lil' Reminder helpful for simple tasks -- like recording a quick note about where they've parked their car in a busy shopping mall lot -- despite its limitations. One plus is that it is easy to use. The small size of the My Lil' Reminder makes it easy to carry around. It includes a detachable key-chain ring and a built-in LED flashlight that some say is helpful at times. But, if you need more versatility -- more recording time and the ability to record multiple messages -- My Lil' Reminder is no substitute for a more capable digital voice recorder.
This site hosts brief reviews of "as seen on TV" (ASOTV) products, including My Lil' Reminder. Top products earn a Must Have award, while unexceptional products that work as advertised earn a Works designation, and those that don't work or whose advertising is misleading get a Doesn't Work label. This review notes some drawbacks -- short recording time, one-message capacity, and the fact that it's easy to delete recordings. It also calls the recording quality "pretty basic, but functional," and invites visitors to watch an accompanying video review that demonstrates the My Lil' Reminder's audio quality. In the end, My Lil' Reminder earns the middling Works grade.
More than 20 users contribute opinions here, and My Lil' Reminder garners an unimpressive 1.5 out of five stars. Some users do rate it highly, however, saying it is perfectly adequate as long as you don't expect too much. Others, however, point out numerous flaws, including very poor audio quality and one-message capacity. One review -- which we hope is a spoof -- describes a tragedy caused by relying on the device.
InfomercialScams.com lets users post complaints about and defenses of products advertised on TV, including My Lil' Reminder.

The built-in LED flashlight is also a plus. She rates it four out of five stars, and adds she would consider My Lil' Reminder a five-star product if it recorded more than one message at a time.
Only a handful of owners have posted their opinions here, but most seem to be unhappy. All complain about the short recording time and the inability to record a second message -- even the one user that says she actually loves My Lil' Reminder.
