Summary: Works very well. Audio quality is excellent. Button arrangement is fine. I read of one user's problem with accidental file deletion but don't see how that can happen given that there is a lock button that prevents this.
Summary: I've used the Olympus DS-2500 Digital Recorder for approximately 3 months now. I do Independent Medical Examinations. It is ergonomically built, intuitive to use, has excellent quality of recordings, and importantly, it allows one to start recording from where a prior initiated recording is stopped...
Summary: Nice recorder. However, I was assured that the software would allow me to save the new .ds2 file format to a . dss file format. It does not. You have to download a firm ware downgrade to do that. Had to spend a lot of time with Olympus to get them to finally admit that.
Summary: This was perfect for our small PT practice, as we were ready to progress from the cassette style dictaphone and transciber. Very easy to use. The only reason I am rating this as 4 and not 5 stars is the software that is included.
Summary: Reliable, easy to use, lasts for months w/ Duracells. We have over 20 of these for our practice and they are real work horses. Tough and reliable have been words used by my users. The included software makes conversion and uploading dictations a breeze.
Ideal Kit for those upgrading or updating their transcription equipment

Summary: The product was received on time and works great. The software and foot pedal work seamlessly together and allows you to listen and type all at the same irrespective of whether the transcription dialog box is in view on the desktop or minimized to the task bar.
