Excerpt: Not just a simple little inexpensive recorder. This thing sounds great and is packed with features that make it very versatile. (Probably more features than I'll ever use). Unless you use this recorder frequently and get to know it pretty well, you may need to refer to the owners manual periodically. The 13 page owners manual stinks. There is however, a full 113 page PDF manual on the enclosed software disk.
Excerpt: Hi end quality for mid-range price. Very compact yet loaded with features and built solid. Rechargable batteries and expandable memory are two more great features. Have yet to use the software but it easily syncs to computer for exporting and listening to files. The only negs is lack of a complete manual which can be viewed (printed) online or purchased for 10.00 and controls/screen are small (but the whole unit is micro so...).
Summary: I really love using this little recorder. Olympus recorders have always been very good. And this one doesn't disappoint. I used it to record a meeting where there were at least 25 people in the room. When I played it back everyone's voice was crystal clear. I've also used it in an auditorium with close to 500 people. The Olympus DM620 captured everything coming through the loud speakers perfectly. No distortion.
Summary: I am a musician and have used many types of recorder over the years. This one is absolutely amazing. It can be used for various applications, its microphones capturing the quietest and loudest sounds without much distortion. Its capacity is huge, and it does not "eat" batteries. Naturally, you would not use it to record the London Symphony Orchestra, but for most other uses, it is fabulous.
Summary: This is a great recorder. It's easy to use and is worth every penny. The Sonority CD that came with it really defines the quality of this recorder. You can file every recording on your computer and go back a edit or scan as needed. Very cool. I like it a lot.
I liked this recorder . Small, comfortable easy to use

Summary: I bought this device in order to record a music camp I was attending and it was the best thing I did. I really didn't have time to study the details of how to use it. I did find that it was user friendly enough for me to dig right into recording my music as well as other musicians Other musicians regretted the fact they didn't have a device to record there music. I will now take my time learning how to file and organize my files. I was considering using my I phone.
Summary: I bought this b/c Olympus recorder was supposed to be great. I use it for corporate meetings and taking minutes and taping the discussions about business and legal issues. I was fearful of the clarity b/c sometimes, business discussions and board meetings can be tough and with number of people involved. Well, I bought this and tested it few days before the big meeting. And on the day of, it was clear, with 20 people in the board meeting, it captured everyone's voice!!
