Olympus DM-10 Handheld Digital Voice Recorder

chlempi, Ebay
6 February 2009
  • Summary: This well built digital voice recorder has more space than one person would require. You never will have to worry if you will run out of space while recording. There are five folders to store your messages in and or music. There is a SRS WOW feature, a hold button so you will not accidentally erease any recorded messages.

Perfect Companion

Ernest Duncan, Amazon
24 February 2007
  • Summary: This recorder has served me well as I been able to record interviews for my research project. The quality of the recordings is spectacular. I was amazed at the battery life. I had anticipated having to replace the battery more often than I had to.

Couldn't Be Happier

Charles G. "An Engineer and Business Person", Amazon
25 December 2006
  • Summary: This is every bit as good as everyone says it is. Put the recorder in the cradle and it shows up as a drive on your PC. Copy and paste the file wherever you want it and listen to it without any added software: the HQ files are stored in Windows Media Audio format built in to every Windows machine. One reviewer complained about the lack of an on/off switch, but there it is, on the back, labeled "hold".

Excellent for preventing a student's writer's cramp

Lynn S. Hendricks "Wordmama", Amazon
4 August 2006
  • Summary: I bought this little recorder because I was getting writer's cramp taking notes for four classes. It easily holds a day's worth of lectures without a problem and picks up every word that's said, though some of the comments from the audience get lost. The microphone is quite sensitive; I accidently turned it on when I shoved it in my pocket, and it still picked up every single word. Amazing!

Worked great, but support from Olympus is lousy

M. Cox, Amazon
14 April 2006
  • Summary: Went bad (recording with heavy static and clicking noises) within warranty period. Sent in for repair. Waited 3-4 weeks, got unit back from Olympus still having the original problem!! What does Olympus say? "Just send it back in again..." They offer no better support than that. They said I have to send it in 3 times before they'll send me a new one. I wish someone else made recorders with these features, but competition is limited.

GPA saver

E. Shmain, Amazon
12 February 2006
  • Summary: I'm a pharmacy school student. When my professors give lectures they usually go so fast, that it is almost impossible to make notes and not to miss the important information. I tried various voice recorders with prices ranged from $39 to $150. Among those were various models of Olympus and Sony. Olympus DM-10 has 3 modes of voice recording. Regular quality, which is useless as in all recorders(really bad sound quality).

Does everything it claims perfectly...

a professional student, Amazon
3 February 2006
  • Summary: I've used my DM-10 for 9 months, and relied on it for ethnographic interviews - it's excellent for this purpose - all the other reviewers are right on. 64M of memory sounds painfully small compared to an ipod, but it works fine for audio notes and meetings... Two things I'd like to point out: One, I like the fact that you can access your audio files without downloading any special software.

DM-10 Great for Meetings

Tommy M. Earley "Travler", Amazon
14 January 2006
  • Summary: I bought this to use for my church group and work. When put on high quality the sound is of an excellent quality. I found the microphone extremely sensitive and I could hear any one talking in the room even if it was tucked in a pocket with clarity. I am impressed. I would only wish I had additional memory since highest quality only affords you 4-5 hours of recording, but in the lesser sound modes they are still good for 8 hours. I have yet to try the 20 hour level.

This item does NOT record in MP3 format

Bearry, Amazon
12 January 2006
  • Summary: I just ordered this item, and Amazon allowed me to download the user's manual. Per the manual, this recorder records only in DSS and WMA formats, NOT MP3 format as Amazon's item description states. If you don't need an MP3 player, save some money by considereing the WS-100 or DS-2.
