Awful for voice recording

Nina, Amazon
2 January 2008
  • Summary: My recorder keeps going mysteriously into a mode where it stops recording if the person stops talking (assuming you are recording voice), which is supposed to conserve your storage space. But what happens is that the recorder cuts off the person prematurely, making the recording virtually USELESS.

Device Permanantly Reverts to Japanese Language

Jeffrey Korhan "Author of Built-In Social: Essential Social Marketing Practices for Every Small Business", Amazon
21 March 2007
  • Summary: If you are considering this device, be aware that it will revert from English language to Japanese if it sits around without being used for a few months. Olympus is aware of this peculiar behavior but charges you to fix it.

Good for lectures

Emmalena Gregory-Bryson, Amazon
17 February 2007
  • Summary: Excellent unit for large lecture halls with 100+ people. It works great with my Mac and I've downloaded the audio files with no problem. It does eat through batteries quite rapidly. I have it set at the highest quality for some of my lecturers who tend to mumble.

Olympus DM-20

Joseph J. Melbourne, Amazon
10 November 2006
  • Summary: Very satisfied with my Olympus Digital Camera equipment. And I have purchased several ( all Olympus ) over the years. My use is primarily professional. Therefore didn't mind paying over $200. for a digital voice recorder. However, this DM-20 disappointed me on all levels. Enough said.
