Peice Of Crep

John Marshall, a P.O.'d buyer, Amazon
11 December 2002
  • Summary: I Bought this peace of crip to record different things that I hear. It only records fuzz. I hate this piece of plastic. It cost me a few dollars to buy, and when I record sounds that I hear, it distorts them and makes them sound like flatulance. I can not believe that this peace of crud works so badly. Don't buy it. It should burn!

Nice entry in this market

  • Summary: I'm happy with it. If it stored 10 or 12 hours of high quality recording, it would be excellent. More memory, Olympus.!!
  • Pros: easy to use, small and effective for what it is.
  • Cons: The three hour mode records at such low quality that it is useless.

A 67 minutes recorder

"ccpell", Amazon
7 August 2002
  • Summary: I bought this recorder because it can record 180 minutes. There are three recording modes. For 180 minutes, you have to put up with very poor sound quality. The sound of standard play mode is excellent, but only record 67 minutes.

An unobtrusive snare for information on-the-fly

falessi "falessi", Amazon
29 July 2002
  • Summary: I use my Olympus daily to capture ideas, wishes, anecdotes, pipe dreams, and a lot of prosaic stuff that I might either forget after 10 minutes or not remember on cue.This recorder's small and light so you can pull it out anywhere you're not self-conscious about speaking into a microphone.Sample entries: the name of the dish I had at the Thai restaurant, a memo to add "Return videos"to my pre-travel checklist after watching someone ahead of me in line pay a hefty fine...

excellent for one hour use

falessi "falessi", Amazon
7 April 2002
  • Summary: First digital recorder for me and found this one to be excellent. It does everything it says in the standard play mode. For 180 minutes, you have to put up with quite a reduction in sound quality. But if you are recording your own voice and can be near the mike, it will easiy be recognizable. Doesn't do too well to pick up a discussion. For the one hour standard format, it is a winner with many good features. .... The weight is light and really easy to carry around.

This is the greatest!

Gretchen Harris, Amazon
25 January 2002
  • Summary: I love this product! I am using it constantly. It's very simple, it's slim and fits easily anywhere, has a carrying strap, volume control, two separate files, and sounds great! I use it mostly when I'm out, as ideas come to me. No more writing on paper at the stop light, trying to finish as the light turns green... This is saving my life and probably many pedestrians as well! I then play all my messages when I'm home and ready to write, and then hit Erase All.

Fuzzy

Gretchen Harris, Amazon
17 January 2002
  • Summary: I received this recorder for Christmas. I intended on using it for interviews because I'm a journalism major. I found that if you hold the device while recording, it picks up every little movement of your hand, making it difficult to hear what is being recorded. Also, voices sound very far away and blurry when played back. I know there is a microphone you can buy to go with it, so I'll have to try that.
