Summary: Although I purchased this item as refurbished, the item was every bit as perfect as the day it came off the line brand new. The box contained the full owners manuel, the quick guide, headphones and the charging cord, far more than I expected with a refurbished item. The recorder works perfectly.
Summary: Love this recorder....does a great job. Problem rechargeable battery will not recharge. Read the instructions correctly but still will not recharge. Use a regular battery it lasted maybe 15 minutes.
Summary: Had some doubts but I bought it with the idea of recording some meetings as my note taking sucks. Put it in my trouser pocket not expecting much. I was able to pick up all of the conversation in the room including the chairs being moved and other sounds. Tried the FM radio and it very well although as it said you have to have earphones/buds as the wire acts as the antenna. Definitely need to read the instruction manual to get the full benefit of all the features.
Summary: I bought this and paid extra for the FM radio ability.....but it does not work. You may wish to save your money and get the cheaper model. The recorder works fine but did not get what was advertised i.e. FM radio.
FM receiver stopped working after 3 months (temporarily)

Summary: UPDATE: The radio started working again and has kept working since it went out for a day or three. I have no idea why it went out or came back. I reset the device, but that didn't bring back the radio function--at least not immediately. Am upgrading the rating to four stars. ===== The recorder is designed very well, packs a lot of features, and is easy to use. As an upgrade from the Olympus DM-20, it is amazing. If it worked perfectly, I'd give it 5 stars.
