recorder up to date

James G. Henderson "Race car nut", Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Great recorder, little frustrated with the extra file that gets written with the software as this is a bug in sending them over the internet. All in all a good digital recorder.

expensive by very high quality

Shade's Trades "ShadesTrades", Amazon
27 December 2012
  • Summary: It's worth the money if you are using this for work or other things where the sound quality matters. We use these on a daily basis and they hold up terrifically. No complaints at all and worth the extra $ if you need good recording and sound quality.

newer model not as good.

Beth Behrmann, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: I have used Olympus products for years in my transcription service business. They have been very reliable and user friendly. I am disappointed as they keep discontinuing machines and having new models and with this one specifically they changed the software entirely and got rid of some features that the person using the machine now has to do in a manual fashion.

It is a good product and far superior to dictating over the phone line.

jerryearlnye, Ebay
10 February 2012
  • Summary: I never had the 2300, so my software was from the 2400. It works fine and it is amazes me that I can email my dictation so easily. The speaker for playback on the unit is not real clear.

One annoying problem

seven, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • Summary: This Olympus voice recorder does not have audible tones to cue you when you have pressed pause or record. I often have to redictate information because the recorder was on pause. I did rely on the audible beeps to help me on my old recorder so I got used to that. This one states that is has an audible tone, but it does not. I even called Olympus to see if maybe mine was defective but they said that this model does not offer that feature.

MY SECOND BRAIN

knightserrant, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: I've been using the olympus recorders for the better part of a decade now it's always in my pocket, it's a work horse I use it every bit of 10 times a day. My only complaint is that there is no auto advance to the next message it requires you to manually forward to the next message, you also have to do the same thing when recording a new message, or it will continue recording under the same record.

A Big Mistake

John A. Lanzone, Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this voice recorder and the associated transcription module because I was unable to find a tape system for my cardiology practice that had acceptable fidelity for playback. Initially, the recorder worked well. The transcriptionist in my office was very pleased and could understand every word.

Fits my needs nicely

Dr. Lloyd, Amazon
6 October 2011
  • Summary: I have used a microcassette recorder, as well as an older version Olympus digital recorder, for my dictation and transcription needs for our periodontal practice over the last 8 years or so. We were "forced" to move forward with technology for various reasons (transcription machine malfunctioning, poor sound quality, new microcassette machines no longer being made).
