Summary: It was bought in time to record the memorial at the funeral home and the comments at my mother's funeral Mass at the church and cemetery. Easy to download to hard drives in My Audio folders.
Pros: One of the best computer devices that I have ever used for recording my thoughts, phone messages to download to my PCs, and other activities, even conversations with doctors, chiropracters, and other events, like Christmas caroling and the happy sounds of children playing with their grandparents ...
Cons: really nothing bad to say, except the text on the buttons is wearing out.
Summary: NewEgg shipping is the best. Battery seems to last for about 12 hours of recording. When the battery indicator says it is time to change the battery it means to change the battery (Go figure! Keep spares handy they are cheap.). A 4 hour lecture yields a file of approximately 50mb in size.
Pros: This recorder is very reliable and does an excellent job recording lectures and conversations. The USB connector makes file transfer and sharing a snap. Size of the device is great for carrrying in a shirt pocket. File management on the device is easy and intuitive.
Cons: Some may think the buttons and screen are small but given the size and weight of the device and the size of my hands I think after a bit of getting used to it they are great.
Summary: I'm a Police Detective and use it to record ALL my interviews. I just put it in my shirt pocket and it picks up GREAT. I then record it to a CD-R. I copy the audio file to my computer to use when I write my report and drop the CD-R into evidence as the official copy.
Pros: Easy to use, great sound replay quality, no background hiss, did I day easy to use? Not to mention the ability to just put it in the USB port and play it in window media player it just TOO awesome. I’ll never go back to a non-digital recorder.
Cons: Newegg doesn't carry all the accessories for it, like the phone microphone attachment. The product might not look sturdy, but after a year of use, it's held up well. I do wish the time and date were easier to set and read.
Pros: Great recorder!! I use it for taping college classes and it is wonderful!!! The BEST!!! playback sounds like you are right there in class! And it is easy to transfer recordings to computer....simply plug into USB port and transfer! Nice and compact too!!! you wont be disappointed!
Summary: I would like to see a little more memory so I could use it as a regular jump drive too. But for voice recording only, the memory is fine.
Pros: I work in law enforcement and keep this thing with me everywhere I go. I record every investigative conversation and when I play it back on window media player the sound quality is Excellent! If you’re looking for a voice recorder that is super easy to use and has outstanding playback quality, lo...
Summary: Useful for long or short recordings, quick sound bytes or clips, quick memos.
Pros: Voices and singing inside or outside from several feet away are recordable on ST-HQ Hi sound sensitivity. 5 folders used for different subjects.
Cons: Too many voices speaking at once cause confusion and noise. The recorder scratches against your clothing creating background noise. Must hold firnmly in hand for clearer recording, or keep it still in a pocket, or on a desk or other surface.
Summary: It would be nice if Olympus will include sound editing software to go with the unit.
Pros: The recorder is very slick. Sound quality is awesome. I used this to record sermons in the church using sound output from a mixer and quality is very good. The stereo mode makes a huge difference to that of mono modes.
Summary: I bought a digital voice recorder from Amazon and I am absolutely thrilled with it. It does exactly as it said it would. I received it in a timely manner and it was a joy to purchase from Amazon.
