Olympus DS 2300, Market Cornered

Vincent, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: This is the most user friendly dicta-phone I have found in the Olympus professional series. The record button is easy to use. I am trapped using these since they are the industry standard for major medical transcription platforms. They are expensive, can't see what file number you have dictated in case you need to STAT a dictation, or try to keep track and back up recordings. Screws come loose over time and fall out.

Very compact, easy to use and generally an excellent (Olympus DS-2300) Digital Voice Recorder

Jagran Frank Laurie, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: Excellent design and recording quality for dictation or when recording a meeting. The memory card has excellent capacity, which naturally also depends on the size of the card. The battery life is sufficient and easy and quick to change if necessary. Rechargeable batteries are useable. I have had good luck with Olympus products and I recommend this product without any reservations.

Very functional unit

  • Summary: I previously had a Sony ICD-MX20 Memory Stick Pro Duo Digital Voice Recorder that was so bad that I gave it away to another unsuspecting employee. My replacement was the DS-2300 recorder. I have been very pleased after 6 months of use. It is a Ph.D. device (push here dummy) which is perfect for my skill set. It functions intuitively. Easy to move backward and redictate over previous dictation. Very simple and easy to understand controls.

Very good dictaphone

G. M. Howard, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • Summary: Efficient to set up, reliable, and insert function all make this a beneficial product. Cost was a bit high, limiting it's review to 4 star level. I might have been able to get something similar for a bit less but I like the feel, weight, button setup and directional mic I purchased with it. The mic is a must.

makes my life easier

docsawhill, Amazon
12 April 2008
  • Summary: I have a small private practice and wanted to make the next step to digital record-keeping. I went by the reviews before me and by the percentage of folks who bought this in order to make my decision to purchase this recorder. I can't believe I went so long without it. That and the Dragon Speaking Naturally have made life easier. I record, upload it onto the laptop, edit, save and print.

Excellent for physician use

book lover, Amazon
9 April 2008
  • Summary: I represent a transcription company - and this recorder is the one we recommend to physicians in solo practice or smaller group practices. I would suggest one recorder per physician, although the recorder can be effectively shared due to the multiple folders available. Very quick process to save dictations to your computer and then upload to your service's website, securely.

Avoid this like the plague !!!!!

T. Robinson, Amazon
30 January 2008
  • Summary: Do not, repeat, do not, buy this item. I puchased one late last year, and within 1 month all of a sudden when I tried to download a file a message came on my computer " memory card is corrupted, see your olympus dealer " . I had to deal with this by having an outside transcriptionist listen to my files and type them out. Having liked my previous recorder from Olympus a few years ago, I thought I would give this one another shot though, so I ordered a new one.

functional but durability remains in question

Freethinker, Amazon
1 January 2008
  • Summary: This DS 2300 recorder has all the functionality needed for frequent voice file creation. Importantly one can rewind and record over the file without creating a new file, a feature not available with some other models. My concern is what happens with the flimsy power and hold switches that need to be slid back and forth before or after use. My last Olympus recorder, a different model, continued to work fine but the hold switch broke.
