Summary: Amazing. when I was doing videography on the cheap, I needed an external recorder. I brought this item. i had this item on the floor and dumb ditzy people who didn't watch where they were walking stepping on it, but because it has a metal housing, it's almost bulletproof.
Summary: I am still learning to use this. Purchased it for quality and voice commands. Writing music with a friend who is legally blind but can see the flashing light and solid recording light on record button. This works well for sight impaired but only after a sighted person learns it and teaches it .
Summary: Real good mics. Have a couple of things that kept it from 5 stars. You cannot erase just a portion of a track. It's all or nothing. I f you are recording(flute clarinet, sax) it's impossible to see the levels while playing other than the clipping activation light, this thing is tiny.There are many...

Summary: There is quite a bit of mis-information, or a clear lack of understanding of what this little beast can do. Aside from the specifications that are readily visible here on the Amazon website, and elsewhere, the LS-7 is clearly capable of a whole lot more. The two biggest points are; 1.
Summary: Easy to use but packed full of features. Love the stereo mic and the fact the recordings can be directly downloaded in MP3 format with no special software required. Quality product; battery life and record times are as stated.
Summary: The reason for my purchase was to record classroom lectures. This unit is absolutely useless for classroom lectures. It barely picks up my own voice at a distance of 4 feet. I wish advertisers would be more forthcoming about the true usability for classroom lecture recording.
Summary: I purchased the LS 7 recorder instead of the LS 10 based on a review written by another person. When I called Olmypus for advice re: buying a memory card, I was told that this is not the best recorder for recording meetings & speechs.
