Summary: I loved the idea of a simple recorder that isn't complicated and I can make notes on or use as an "order of movement" for my tai chi practice. Sadly, this is very poor. It's easy enough to work. But the quality of the recording is simply awful, garbled and muddled and not understandable. I've tried recording at high volume, at low volume, close up, far away, and any and all combinations.
Summary: I have been using the smallest available voice recorders for over 30 years. I started with the Olympus microcassette tape recorder in the late '70s. I have one on my person 24/7, except when I am in bed. I find it indispensable for making notes of whatever I want to take care of later. Much, much handier than a pen and paper. Recording Time - 13 hours, 20 minutes in SP mode. 74 hours, 42 minutes in LP mode.
Summary: My answer to a comment: This unit will record at least 3 hours non-stop set on "high quality". Olympus still has a page for this model which is pretty old. Here is a link to get the online .pdf instruction manual etc.: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_manuals.asp?id=1391 If the link didn't print in this comment, just google: [olympus vn-100 digital voice recorder] This machine has served me well for many years.
Summary: I've read the reviews here, some use it for Ghost Hunting for Evp's, I have a Ghost Group, this type of recorder would be totally useless to us as an investigative tool, simply because it can't connect to and transfer it's files to a computer, how can this possibly be used for Ghost Hunting, if you can't put the files on a computer and review them in a nice program like Wavepad, where you can enhance the sound, or do whatever you need to them, or even transfer them or...
Summary: I purchased these for my classroom. My students read into them during small group time. Although there is constant background noise in the classroom, the students' voices are recorded very clearly. It is easy enough for the students to understand how to use the recorder.
Summary: i was skeptical about this because it was inexpensive, but it really turned out to be just what i needed - i use it to record (creative) ideas before they fly out of my head (i am a writer and an artist) and save tons of paper and time and stay organized. they are easy to retrieve, easy to understand, easy to manage.
