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
Summary: The VN90 is a cute device that looks like a cell phone but feels like a light plastic toy i have mine for more than a year and it still works. Unlike tapes, digital is magic and seems it will last forever.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
