Excerpt: I bought this voice recorder to replace a bulky tape voice recorder. The machine is compact and fits easily into a shirt pocket. It is light in weight yet has a solid feel and fits neatly into the palm of the hand. All the controls are on the front for easy access, but can be fiddly to use.
Pros: Compact size, light weight.
Cons: Short recording times, very poor sound quality on long play which limits usefulness.
Excerpt: The Olympus VN 900 is very useful and user friendly. The battery life is long. I have never accidentally erased something. I have tried many others and this is definitely the best for the money.

Cons: For eighty bucks, the sound should be a little better
