Great device, not worth the money though.

  • Excerpt: INTRODUCTION This is my current dictaphone and so far I am really impressed by it. Since going to university I have fallen in love with dictaphone and don't think people give them another credit as they are now viewed as a fairly old school device. PRODUCT The device comes in a sleek, shiny black case, and is nice and light weight and compact, without being too small.

  • Excerpt: When I first started in med school, this little hand held Dictaphone by the market leader Olympus came in so handy it was unbelievable. Why buy a Dictaphone when most phones have a recording device built in? We had a lecturer that hated mobile phones and would insist we turned off ours right in front of him as we entered the hall.

A great and compact dictaphone that pretty much can't be beaten for functionality!

  • Excerpt: The first i heard of these dictaphones was when I was given a demonstration of one so I could make a decision for my Disabled Students Allowance claim for university. The first thing that struck me was the compact size. It will easily fit pretty much anywhere and not hinder the people around you. In terms of ease of use, you won't get much better. It is easy to navigate the menus, initiate recordings and play back what you recorded.

A good piece of kit

  • Excerpt: The dictaphones you can get nowadays are so much better than any from the past. The clarity of playback is a heck of a lot better, along with the amount you can store on them. The size has of course got smaller and smaller over the years, as with many modern gadgets. It seems to be the smaller then better, this isn't always good though, especially for gentleman who do not have small hands! You won't have any trouble with this one though.

Pricey but well worth the money

  • Excerpt: I came across the Olympus DM 550 when I first started university last year. I am dyslexic and qualified for DSA and they recommended this model for me and as they were paying for it I accepted. I was very sceptical at first as I have had a different, much cheaper olympus voice recorder while at college and did not use it much due to the quality of play back. I found it to pick up any sound close to it, like paper rustlingand the lecturers voice would be muffled.

un buon registratore digitale

  • Summary: Mi rendo conto che non si tratta di un dispositivo indispensabile, da molti, potrebbe anche essere considerato un qualcosa di inutile. Nel periodo in cui mi fu regalato, mi serviva per registrare le lezioni ed effettuare interviste,sempre a livello scolatico. In realtà, questo non è di certo l’unico uso che ne ho fatto!

OLYMPUS Dictaphone DM-550

  • Excerpt: C'est un très bon appareil (pour tous les points positifs voir la fiche technique sur le site d'Olympus), la qualité du son est très bonne même dans des conditions difficiles, mais cet appareil a pour moi deux points négatifs : d'abord le prix, double de certains appareils pour une efficacité pas si supérieure que ça; ensuite, il est très peu intuitif. Même pour simplement le recharger via pc, il est nécessaire d'avoir survolé le manuel d'utilisation.
  • Pros: Petit, fonctionne avec piles rechargeables via cable usb, capacité de stockage et surtout bon son même en conditions peu optimales (amphi), etc.
  • Cons: Peu intuitif, prix pour une qualité presque égale au WS650 qui est moitié moins cher

  • Excerpt: В целом хорошая вещь. Главное - качество записи, а оно здесь на высоте. Купил и не жалею. Не гонитесь за дешевизной и, особенно, за рекламой. Смотреть надо на параметры записываемых частот, а не на число часов записи. Оно так их запишет, что не разберешь ни слова. Здесь - супер!
  • Pros: Действительно очень высокое качество записи, хоть и сделано в Китае. Не перехваливаю! (с Edic mini даже сравнивать нельзя, там полный отстой по этой части), достаточно высокая чувствительность. Небольшой размер, возможность 8Gb флэш-карты.
  • Cons: Как у всех Олимпусов, неудобная кнопка включения: очень слабая, включение и выключение делается смещением кнопки в одну и ту же сторону. Включать на ощупь в кармане не получится: никогда неизвестно включился он или нет. Слишком длинное время ожидания от включения до возможности начать запись, приходится заранее держать в ждущем режиме.
