  • Excerpt: Overall, I think this is a good little unit for the money. It is easy to use and works great. The Mic is very sensitive and picks up sound very well in the voice sense mode when set to the highest quality level.
  • Pros: size, cost, ease of use
  • Cons: capacity of recording and battery life span in voice act mode

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.

Fuzzy

Amazon

  • 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.

excellent for one hour use

  • 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.

Great Product!

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: My husband is a sales rep and is in the car constantly. Before the Olympus VN-90 he would write reminders down and forget where he wrote them. This has been the greatest tool for him to keep reminders on and to review at night. It has saved my sanity!

This is the greatest!

  • 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.

Don't wash this machine

  • Summary: I came to feel naked without this thing. It was light and inconspicuous, aside from the fact that I felt like James T. Kirk attempting to contact the Enterprise when I used it (I don't do cell phones). I forgot to empty it from my pocket when I did the wash.

An unobtrusive snare for information on-the-fly

Amazon
16 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...

A 67 minutes recorder

Amazon
16 July 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.
