Summary: This is by far my favorite instrument. I use it everyday all day, and the files are easy to transfer to my computer for uploading to a website or sharing over the internet. It's got great sound and the size is just right.
Awesome recorder, but make sure all the parts are included!

Summary: I am pleased with the Olympus DM 420. The sound quality is great, and the device is easy for blind people to use. I also really appreciate its portability. I was able to purchase the device used, for about half the price it normally sells for. I have rarely had any trouble buying used or refurbished products; however, it was not made clear to me that this unit was to come without batteries or a USB cable.
Summary: I wrote a review of this device that was not very nice. THe device had to to be charged and the only way to charge it is to press a button while plugging in the USB (design flaw). Regardless, the company just called to ask me to delete my poor review. I was almost willing to do it until the representative became very condescending and asked if I received a manual with the product. SO here you go again, you have to hold the stop switch in in order to charge this device.
Summary: This the second DM recorder I buy. So I can say that this device is so really helpfull that i'd bought it for my best friend's B-day. easy to use, as recorder and as music player. I warmly recommand it. =================== c'est le deuxième que j'achète. Je peux dire que cet enregistreur est tellement d'une grande aide que je l'ai offert en cadeau d'anniversaire à ma meilleure amie. Facile à utiliser, tant en enregistreur qu'en balladeur pour la musique.
Summary: This is an AWESOME voice recorder. I've been using this now for several years of lectures and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Get this. period. Ok. where to start? this picks up the lecture voice clearly in rooms of different types (labs, lecture halls, small rooms, large rooms, etc). the sound quality is excellent.
Summary: I remember purchasing this device at a office max store because of the mp3 back in 2010. I tried alot of other voice recorders with MP3 but the quality for the music fiels was bad. Only DM-420 has the perfect sound and quality for certain music fiels and i love the belt carrying case no other recorder has. If i lose this again,i want the same one-only the DM-420 i like.
