Surprisingly good recording quality and loud speaker

Summary: I have tried many different flash recorders and this one is the best. I also own the DP-201 and they seem to work exactly the same. I am amazed by the recording quality, which rivals my TASCAM DR-05. It picks my voice up across the room. The playback is equally impressive. I can hear it in the next room. My only criticism is that the volume dial is small - about the same size as the old sony walkman dialers.
Summary: I purchased this recorder from Amazon because Olympus usually makes a great sounding recorder. This recorder is easy to use and sounds crystal clear even through the built in speaker. If you need to record speech audio or make audio notes, this recorder is absolutely the best! It is very affordable and the audio quality is absolutely superb! The recorder is super light weight and the battery life is quite good too.
Summary: I got this for my mom who is having a hard time writing due to parkinsons. She loves this thing. It's easy to use and she is able to record her thoughts and reminders and play them back easily.
Summary: Once you read and understand how to use it, it has served the purpose I bought it for...old age forgetfulness:(. Reading comments (quite a few negatives) before buying the recorder, I felt that the people writing them did not read the directions thoroughly, thus had problems they should not have had. I haven't had it long enough to have any of the other problems commented on, so I'm hoping for the best. I would recommend this recorder as a safe purchase.
Summary: I used this to ease drop on somebody. It picked up every noise in the house and outisde. (Average size house) When someone starts talking the sounds fade and the voices are clear. It served it's purpose. I'm sure there are better ones but for the price I like this alot. I still use it to record reminders, etc...
Summary: It arrived today. Compact. Easy to use (record, playback, search,erase). Searches are done by the date of the recording, then the number of the file (no titles). You cannot add to an existing recording.. If you make multiple recordings over a period of several days of things to buys, one recording may contain only 1 item; the next 3, the next; 5; the next 1; the next, 7 etc...., over 5 days.

Summary: But that's about it. I don't hate this product, but it's not a significant improvement on cassette quality sound. And works just as well, in other words, it doesn't replace the cassette in a significant way. Except perhaps for smallness. But my cassette isn't very big either.
