Summary: The product arrived weeks before the 'estimated' delivery date and was a fair price, the item itself is not hard to work with once you get the hang of it and it is clear and concise when play-back is used, though there seems to be only one volume.
Summary: I bought this product to assist me in my transition back into college, and it has worked out great! Olympus products are time tested and proven to work great, and clarity is great, even in the back of the room.
Summary: This is my second VN-5000. I had lost my first one for several weeks before finding it at the bottom of my washing machine, apparently having gone through a complete wash cycle. While quite clean, it refused thereafter to record anything.
Summary: In good shape, works well easy to use, has good mic that picks up well. Has many folders to keep information in and easy to use. Easy to delete unwanted items. Unfortunatly I wanted something I could down load to my computer and I can't do that with this recorder. But overall, happy with he product.
Great value and soun quality but no way to PC connection

Summary: I buy this item to record my teachers in the class, i like the easy function and the intuitive manual, but the worst point is the no way to connect to computer to extract the records. If you want to playback your records in the computer it's not your item.
Summary: Got the idea from a beekeeper friend of mine. Whenever I examine my hives by the time I get inside to write in my journal I've forgotten what I found in which hive! Was it hive #2 that hadn't fully drawn out the frames or was it number 3? Was it #1 that was low on pollen stores or #4?
