Summary: THE OLYMPUS RECORDER IS SIMPLE TO OPERATE. I USE IT FOR: TO DO LIST, AND LISTING TELEPHONE #S, WEBSITES, ADS, ETC, THAT I COME ACROSS. THIS MODEL, VN900, DOES NOT CONNECT TO COMPUTER, BUT, NOT NECESSARY FOR MY USE. GOOD BUY.
Summary: This is a supa little recording device. Very compact and easy to use. I agree that the LP mode is rather crap, but it does work for emergency long recordings (if you were say kidnapped and held in a small box and needed to record what the criminals were saying). The HQ mode is cool tho, offering 22mins of hi-quality recording time. I mainly use it for recording ideas for tunes that I have whilst away from my Mac, so 22 mins is easily long enough.
Summary: I bought the olympus digital voice recorder for my singing class. It was recommended by my voice instructor and it works great! The sound quality is awesome--it doesn't pick up background noise like other recorders I've used. Plus, I really like that there are several folders so I was able to organize everything. I used two of the folders to keep notes from my discussion classes in college and the others for song samples.
Summary: I've had this recorder for almost a year. I've dropped it, gotten it wet, and it's still ticking! Never had any problems with it; it's been a huge asset in my record keeping. I HIGHLY recommend this recorder!!!
Summary: This is a fantastic product. I bought one for my Father-in-law and liked it so much I just had to buy one for myself! It's small enough to slip easily into my pocket so it's always available. I use it for to-do lists, short personal memos, and to dictate correspondence. I couldn't be more pleased!
Summary: Great product except for one irritating flaw. The clip should be mounted on the back of the device not on the side. Clip this into your shirt pocket and you have a 1.5" bulge in your pocket, hang it on your belt and it sticks out waiting to crach into something. The clip is useless so it floats around in your pocket; it took 3 days for me to lose mine when it fell out of my coat pocket.
Summary: This is the voice recorder I've been looking for. It gives you 22 minutes of high quality recording in HQ mode. You can select the microphone sensitivity for dictation or high. I keep mine on high all the time. It will pick up bird songs or planes flying overhead. There is a hold switch on the side of the unit that disables the buttons so that it won't activate when you are carrying it in your pocket or purse.
Summary: The VN900 is a wonderful product. It is the smallest of kind, easy to use, has powerful extra features like programmable alarms to help you remember when and what to do on a busy day. The battery consumption is nill, much lower than some competative products. It suits my purposes perfectly. but . . . It does NOT record 90 minutes of voice. In LP mode the sound quality is SOOO poor that it is USELESS.
