Excerpt: I purchased two VN-7200 in 2013. Both stopped operating by May 2014. I purchased a third one a few months ago. I use the recorder daily and can't be without it. I am sending the two units back to Olympus for repairs.
Excerpt: -I purchased this digital recorder to aid in taking minutes at our monthly business meetings. Recording the minutes was so much easier than trying to write everything down as it was being said. The sound quality was very good. It picked up all the voices clearly. The meeting room is not very large approximately 10 ft. by 20 ft. As I have not used it in a large area, I do not know how it would pick up voices in a very large room.
