Decent unit for short travel notes, but way overpriced

  • Summary: I've been carrying this in my purse for at least five or six years. The only useable recording mode is HQ. Sound is scratchy, even then. The buttons are slippery, and it's difficult to use while in traffic, even when at a full stoplight (NEVER use it when driving, unless you want regret, the rest of...

OK for personal messages, but don't try to dictate

TLD, Amazon

  • Summary: Although this digital voice recorder's (DVR) customer- and editorial reviews are accurate, they fail to identify one important flaw! With a DVR, (unlike audio microcassette recorders) you can NOT rewind over an erroneous word and rerecord it.

Perfect for keeping a journal

  • Summary: I selected the VN-1800 after looking at many dictating devices on the Internet. I use mine for recording my thoughts and diary entries on the go. It's small enough to fit nicely into my pocket, and the Hold switch never accidentally slides open.

  • Summary: I originally purchased this recorder to take minutes in meetings. In both HQ and SP modes, the quality of recording is very good for this purpose, assuming use of headphones when transcribing.

great product

  • Summary: The new VN1800 from olympus is a very good product! I see it as a next generation compared to my older VN90. The most impressive differences to me are the smaller size and the better sound. There is also a fourth directory and buttons are more intuitive with the jogdial.

Very useful - almost essential once you've tried it

Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: This has good, crisp sound at the HQ setting. The full range of the mic shows on a larger speaker if you dub it from the headphone jack. The mic is very sensitive (on high) and is able to pick up sounds near and far without over-amplifying the nearer ones.
